My Version of Trello

Utilizing the Online Tool, Trello

Have you ever happened upon something that just makes life easier? I don’t know about for you, but for me it makes me want to jump and start doing a little happy dance!  I’m always looking for new systems to organize my business and so when my friend Katelyn posted about this online management software, I had to give it a try.  Now, I’ll admit that I’m always a little hesitant when the next “big thing” comes out and so that’s why I’ve been giving it a bit of time to really test it out!

So, I’ve been using Trello for three months now and I’ve found a system that works really well for me! I’m a one woman show as of right now, so I only have to keep my boards organized the way that I want them to be!  I utilize Trello as a workflow management system.

Within these lists, I also have checklists that I create for each event.  For example, this is what my checklist looks like for every blog.

I have these checklists for everything; for: engagement shoots, weddings, album design, full client workflow, and more!

What about you guys! Do you use Trello? How do you navigate this awesome thing?

    Trello is one of the things that I have known about for a while but TOTALLY intimidates me. I’m a better paper/pencil type of girl! Lol! But this is pretty persuasive…I should prob give it a try!

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.
