Remember back in January when we were all like, “Yeah! Slay 2017! This is the year…yeah! *high fivezzzzz*” Remember that?! Didn’t think so. I wanted to take a minute, mid-year, to regroup and give you some tricks that you can use TODAY, and on a daily basis, to get you back on track for crushing […]

1. You will work more hours. You originally made the decision to “work for yourself” because you wanted the freedom to work less. You won’t, at all. But here’s the thing, you’ll work more hours happily because you would rather spend more hours working on your own thing than fewer hours working on someone else’s […]

Your website: potentially the most powerful business tool you will arm yourself with. In today’s climate, your customers are everlastingly making their way to the Googles to see who or what will populate their search results. Upon discovering your little corner of the world wide web, your website becomes the piece of marketing collateral that […]

Hey, you! Can I talk to you for a second? I just wanted to tell you that you’re amazing. You really are. You need to stop doubting your greatness and start looking at your fears from your rearview mirror. If I can say f@&kit to my corporate life to create a life that I am […]

What is 2017 going to represent for you? Do you want to become a wedding photographer? Do you want to become a portrait photographer or start some other type of business? Do you want to lose weight, build a garage, paint the house, do yoga, start a blog, learn to tap dance, learn another language, […]

In 2009, I shot my first paid wedding. In the seven years that followed I have faced many ups and downs, I have dealt with negativity and criticism and I have endured the pain of poor decisions. I have also felt the joy of super happy clients, the satisfaction of sharing new images and the […]

I recently spoke to a local photography club, the Fundy Camera Club. First, I have to say how incredibly rewarding that was. As photographers, we spend so much time in isolation; photographing, processing and delivering our individual craft that we rarely have the opportunity to cluster together and talk shop – but when the opportunity presents itself […]

It is no secret that successful entrepreneurs establish a daily routine and stick to it. In fact, without the external structure common in most corporate work environments, your own daily routine it’s crucial. The thing is, no two people are created equally, and the same 8-4 or 9-5 schedule that works for most others, may […]

Can I talk to you for a minute? I want to tell you that you are amazing. Let’s talk about the fact that there are going to be shitty days. Maybe like today. Days that clobber you over the head, make you feel like you’re stuck in a sinkhole, days that bring you to your […]
