My Anti-Hussle Soapbox

    The beginning of a business is a lot like the beginnings of new love. You can’t spend enough time together, being a part feels like agony, and all that you see is… possibility. It’s a wonderful phase. I loved that phase. It comes with some hazards, though. Friends and family feel neglected, past priorities […]

We as women are hard enough on ourselves, without any help from anyone else. I’m pretty sure on a personal level we can all agree on that. And yet, we forget to extend this truth for others. Every day I struggle with my own feelings of ‘not enough’. Every. Single. Day. In one form or another, […]


January 17, 2017

Welcome to 2017! I’m going to be honest, 2017 makes me nervous. I don’t know what 2017 has in store. As in, I have no idea.

my word for 2017

January 5, 2017

I’ve recently found myself in a completely new environment…literally.

September 22, 2016

I’m on Instagram, and I’m looking at some accounts where (if I’m being totally honest) their creativity supersedes anything I could ever hope to have with in my own iPhone holding hands. There they are with beautiful and cohesive images filling their little grids. They’ve already done it, and their follower count proves it. And I wonder…have […]

Girl Boss Book Club – July

July 1, 2016

When I tell the story, even I can’t quite remember how I did it. I started my business with a 3 year old, a 2 year old, and a 4 month old. Who does that?? My hormones must have still been really off to have thought that was a good plan.  But there I was wanting something of my own. […]

7 Years Later – Growing my Babies & Business Together

May 11, 2016

Sitting in the corner of our little bedroom in our little duplex, I typed my very first post. I had started my photography business about a year prior and finding resources and information was nothing like it is today!  Pinterest didn’t exist, and blogs were not plentiful. I would scour and scour, and when I found something that […]
