It’s not that building a senior model rep program is so hard…it’s more that there are a ton of rookie mistakes that are made (so don’t beat yourself up if you’ve made a few!). Both Leslie, the creator of Seniorologie and I will admit to making a lot of them in today’s episode. We will […]

September brings with it a strange mix of chaos and calm for us photographers.  With summer winding down, I am feeling a deep longing for structure and order…. To get the kids back into a routine, to get myself  back into a routine.  I’m anxious for that to begin! But it’s also the start of […]

Planning for the Photography Holiday Season

… Of… YES!  Yourself. Wait, what was that? Doesn’t Leah know that the reason I am the photographer is so that I never have to be IN a photograph again??  Why are we talking about the camera being pointed at me?  Maybe I’ll just pin this one, go back to it someday… someday  far, far […]
