Learning While Brushing My Teeth | Business

Podcasts.  I’ve listened to them for years, but never on my phone.  It never occurred to me that there might be an app for that… and that I might have put that app in a folder labeled Useless.  🙂 Side note: If you don’t have a folder on your phone labeled Useless, you’re missing out.  It’s […]

My Little Productivity Secret | Business

Sometimes I Don’t Blog… | Business

It’s time I admit it: Sometimes I don’t blog.  The truth is, I love blogging.  I’ve been blogging consistently since the summer after 8th grade.  I’ve even met wonderful friends through blogging– friends that I’ve never met in person, and a few I have.

What Business Owners Want to Know

I rarely say this, but Facebook has knocked it out of the park for business pages lately!  So often Facebook is a struggle for businesses.  It’s a great marketing tool for sure, but the rules change constantly and paying for advertising doesn’t guarantee better results.

3 Main Goals of a Second Photographer | The Art of Second Shooting

At first, second shooting seems a lot like any other photography job, but truthfully it’s wildly different!  For most photographers,  you’re representing your own business when you photograph a client. But with second shooting?  You’re representing someone else! Most people are surprised to know that I second shoot a ton.  For me, it’s a great […]

Working with the Church Coordinator | Business

Hi there!  This is a post specifically for vendors… and kind of geared towards photographers and videographers.  We’ve all encountered the ‘church lady.’  The one who tells us where we can or can’t go during the ceremony.  The one everyone loves to hate. We’ll call her the church coordinator from here on out.  And I’m going […]
