You are beautiful.

I know it’s hard getting stuck in that comparison trap and getting all up in your feels. I do the same thing. Then I remember that everyone is beautiful and unique in their own way. The world would be so boring if we were all the same. 

Just know that you are beautiful, and that’s what I see when I take your picture. 

Just because we’re friends, doesn’t mean you have to hire me. 

There are so many photographers out there and it’s for a good reason. Some people mesh better with others and some specialize in something that I don’t. We all have a different style, price point, client experience and personality. 

Will I be a little sad that I’m not the one taking your pictures? Yes. Will I be happy that you’re getting the pictures done by someone who specializes in what you’re looking for? 100% YES.

You can support my business without hiring me.

Social media, specifically Facebook, is where A LOT of my clients come from. 

If you want to support my business, SHARE my posts, leave a comment, or tag a friend. 

The more you share and comment, the more visibility I have online. That means the more families I’ll be able to help capture memories for. 

This is my J-O-B.

Do I love what I do? Abso-freakin’-lutely! I get to travel the state, visit new places, be around families and their newborns, and get to know the families I work with. 

The part that you may not see though is the hours I spend not just taking pictures, but editing them. I attend workshops, learn new techniques, manage my books, work with my social media manager, my workspace, study new marketing trends, and so much more. 

I love supporting other moms to make the clear & confident decisions to take family pictures, but it’s also my livelihood!

Remember, you are beautiful.
