Hello August A Month at a Glance



Can we just all agree… Where on Earth did July go?!  With a heavy travel schedule this month flew by like it wasn’t even here!  Because of that, I have to admit that some of my goals did not get accomplished as much as I had hoped!  But that’s okay! This month I chose to be present instead of perfect, and really, I’d rather choose that any day of the week!  This business means nothing if I don’t get to share it with the people I love!  Anyways, August is not quite as busy and so I’m excited to spend the month catching up on things in the office that I’ve been meaning to get checked off of my to-do list!

August at a glance:

  • I have a few shoots on the radar and a gorgeous wedding at the end of August that I can’t wait for!
  • The Global Leadership Summit is the week! It’s by far one of my favorite leadership training events of the year.
  • Plus there’s a few more parties scheduled on the calendar, but no big adventures in August thus far!

Business Goals for July:

  • Create more posts about branding for creatives (CHECK!)
  • Maintain a better blogging consistency, I fell behind a bit in the busyness of last month! (I could definitely do better this month!)
  • Tackle album designs (Check!)
  • Update my website gallery (I chose the images for it, I just need to implement it)
  • Update my wedding guide (I didn’t touch this! Ah!)
  • Shoot my sessions well for July (Check!)
  • Maintain my business while I’m away – but still allowing myself grace and the ability to enjoy each moment! (I think I did a good job at being present and still doing okay with maintaining everything but the blogging)

Personal Goals for July:

  • Tidy up the house before Sunday! (Check!)
  • Enjoy vacation!! (Check!)
  • Read at least a book! (Nope!)

Business Goals for August:

  • Finish updating the galleries
  • Stick to my blogging calendar this month
  • Work on creating the updated wedding guide for brides
  • Update website with consistent headshots

Personal Goals for August:

  • Eat out less- cook more.
  • Try two new recipes
  • Read a book! (I’m looking for suggestions, too!)
  • Plan a camping trip with Morgan

    “Tidy up the house before Sunday” made me laugh out loud a bit! I feel like I tidy up my house 6 times a day and still live in the land of toys. I should really make a goal list like this- good for you!

Wife, mama, wielder of light & joy, and capturer of moments.  I thrive off of conversation and genuine connection.  In between wrangling our kiddos, and hanging my husband, you'll find me dreaming up my next idea or creative endeavour.  It's these things that culminate to give my imagery a warmth and joy to them - the greatest compliment I could receive.

Lauren grew up spending her summers at the shore, and when she and Nick got together, she couldn't help but introduce him, too!  Their session in New Jersey was filled with gorgeous light, sweet smiles, and so much love & laughter.

Connor and Alli's wedding celebration was full of lush florals, gorgeous details, and a whole lot of joy.  Their first look was one of the most sacred moments I've witness on a wedding day... filled with so much delight and love!

One of my greatest inspirations comes from exploring and the California coast fulfills that wanderlust like nothing else.  Anytime I have rolling hills and oceanside views, I'm in heaven.

She's the ultimate hypewoman. I was pretty nervous about being photographed and Lauren made everything fun and flexible. Honestly, I can't imagine the day without her and her team. They were wonderful and hearing from Lauren was always a genuine delight.
