When I read this in a blog post from Jasmine Star, I knew I had to keep it tucked away somewhere. Her advice for one of her followers is so truthful and impactful. The message may help someone out there.
"You said “there is a little fire inside me waiting to come out, but first I need clients” but I strongly disagree. If your fire is dependent on clients, you’re in trouble. I believe your fire is in YOU, in your work. You’ll only get clients if you build your fire alone…and attract them to it. The fire must grow before you’ll get clients. So what does this mean? DO THE WORK. Show up. Hustle. Practice. Experiment. Create. Just shoot so darn much you thinkdreameatbreathe it. That’s how you build your fire."
Here is a list of all the fun hashtag-able days coming in July! Let me know if you need some awesome personal branding images for your social media and websites! These seasonal themes are also great for family sessions and couples! Pina Colada date, ice cream date, and grilling with the family! i think the ice cream bit is my favorite - and oh so cute for the little ones.
I couldn't help but post these.
My baby girl asked if she could take a picture of me with her baby. Then asked to take a picture of 'Klausy Boy'. I assisted her with her request and this is what she captured.
A MOTHER'S DAY EXPERIENCE.
When I was initially thinking about a Mother's Day special, I thought to myself "What would I REALLY want?"
The things I personally long for as the mother of a 2.5 year old is actually just a little bit of normalcy. I would love to actually be able to try on some clothes and get a few things for myself without either having a toddler pulling at my legs or feeling rushed. I would like to be able to pamper myself - or really just take care of myself a bit. And I would LOVE to be in the picture with my child. I think every mom can feel me in this category of having a million pictures of your child/children and of them with other relatives, but very very few with yourself. Its actually kind of heart wrenching. So I went to a few of my favorite local ladies, because I knew they would love this idea! We are so excited to be offering this true experience to our local Moms. If you want the mom in your life to feel really special, this is such a thoughtful gift. Take if from me: a tired and busy mom!
TIRED MOM TIP: Let mom spend the first few minutes of her portraits to herself, and then show up with the kids so that she can have some precious moments captured with them too!!
