Crafting a Weekly Schedule as a Creative Entrepreneur

Call me nosy but I used to always be curious as to how business owners organized each week! It’s easy to see a long (and sometimes never-ending) to-do list and wonder how people organize & prioritize it to tackle it! This week’s blog post is for photographers that want an inside peek as to how to organize your weeks to tame that to-do list!

My Favorite Charlottesville Vineyards & Wineries

As spring rolls around and the weather warms up, I’m dreaming of getting back out to the beautiful Charlottesville vineyards! This is something that I’m really looking forward to post-quarantine and I think it’d be a GREAT way to celebrate being able to get back out and about whenever we are able to safely do so!

February Personal Recap

Sticking with the tradition of monthly recaps just to have these to look back on and track growth years down the road! I can already feel a shift in the way that I think about and run my business this year from last. I have a feeling that it’ll always be something in flux and hopefully, I have the wisdom to always make sure it fits in well with my life!

January ’20 Personal Recap

It has felt like a long and full month over here! I started out the New Year traveling to Asheville and Atlanta. It was fun celebrating with cousins in ATL that I hadn’t seen in the while! We got to tour the city which was really fun even on a rainy day and I can’t wait to go back (maybe this year?) to get to see more of it! I also got to travel to Texas for the first time in the middle of January for a business retreat that was refreshing and inspiring and got me ready to tackle some big things in 2020!

Photography Website Tips

As critical as it is to show up on social platforms to market your business, I think one of the most overlooked essential components of marketing is actually YOUR WEBSITE! A good website signifies that you’re established, your business is still running and gives your clients a feel for what working with you will be like.
