The AWP WORKSHOP 2018

The AWP WORKSHOP 2018

I feel like this post should begin with a drum-roll, so, just do me a favor and do a little drum-roll on your keyboard before you keep reading... (*insert wink emoji here) 

I have already shared a little bit about my heart and planning experience regarding this workshop but now it's time to actually dig deep into the day itself. It's also a chance for me to brag shamelessly on my incredible attendees and vendors who were absolutely amazing. 

"A Gateway of Hope" | My Takeaway From Today's "She Read's Truth"

"A Gateway of Hope" | My Takeaway From Today's "She Read's Truth"

This year has not started off on the best foot for me. From day 1 (literally, not figuratively) I have experienced trial after trial. It seems as though everything I had carefully and perfectly and intentionally planned is one by one falling apart. This is the place in my life that I am known to run. My whole life, I have been a "runner" (now that on IS figurative! ha!). As soon as a trial faces my way, I fight until I am weak and then I run. 

I can't tell you how many people have said that to me. This has cost me many cherished relationships in the past...

Recently, someone reached out to me regarding my process of finding self-forgiveness during my time of becoming an unwed mother.... (read more)

I need to start this by telling you how excited I am to finally being able to catch up with work and share this blog. I absolutely adore these photos and this couple and I know that you all will too! 

A while back, in April to be exact, I had the insane pleasure of putting together a styled bridal shoot and a re-envisioned wedding shoot with some good friends, family, and a team of phenomenal vendors at one of my favorite venues to date- The Lange Farms. Those shoots were both picked up for publications by some of the best publishers in our local area (in fact- the wedding couple's images still haven't been blogged here because they are currently being prepared for publication by Gulf Coast Bride and Southern Bride!) and because of those publications, Samantha saw my work and fell in love with it....

Break The Lie of Perfection | Giving Grace | Personal Post

I have been thinking a lot lately about the trials that come with parenthood. Specifically, being a parent of a toddler. Even more specifically, the parent of a toddler who acts like she is a mix of a 16 year old and a Tasmanian Devil all together. It's a whirlwind for sure.

This was going to be a post about my new office...

This was going to be a post about my new office. A post with pretty photos documenting this new fun area I get to have all to myself. This space I have dreamt of for seemingly a lifetime. 

Oh, don't worry- there will still be all the pretty photos of some of my new space. Duh. BUT- That is not shaping up to be the actual story within this post. 

Instead, I am going to highlight that little quote in my photo up there ^...

There is this whole page on my website dedicated to explaining what the workshop is, who it is for, when and where it's happening... all that jazz. However, I wanted to share a little personal backstory on how I even got to this point in business because trust me, it's been a long time coming!...read more

Raw Authenticity- The Comparison Trap

Raw Authenticity- The Comparison Trap

I am debating whether to post this or not. To be honest- I don't know where this post is headed or what all will be revealed. All I know is that I feel the need to write-so here I am...
