I Want To Tune In!

These last two months have truly felt like I’ve been riding the Alaskan Bullworm – if you’ve never heard of it, please see this meme haha! 

June looked like. . .  

Shooting a 3-day wedding and surprisingly absolutely LOVING it!!

Flying out and exploring Chicago as I ate my weight in deep dish & donuts!

The following weekend I got to attend a friend’s wedding – which meant getting henna done (yay!)….. andddd accidentally falling asleep with my hands curled up into a ball resulting in some questionable henna patterns haha!

I shot a high school friend’s wedding in DC the weekend after that which was SO special! And got brunch at First Watch – highly recommend

July then looked like…

Spending July 4th in Raleigh NC where we did a Trolley Pub tour & LOVED the Flying Saucer!

Getting my brand pictures taken – SO fun!!!

I had less than a week at home before I flew out to Charleston to attend Hope Taylor’s Mastermind Retreat which was SO fun – I’ll have to blog about it soon!

Coming home to drive to Richmond and then Winston-Salem NC to attend Creative @ Heart Conference as a PANELIST and Headshot Photographer! 

I FLEW back home (culled & edited all the headshots that night!!) and then left for the Hamptons the next morning for my best friend’s bachelorette and just made it home last night!!

I was technically “in the office” for less than 2 weeks out of the entire 2 months and yet because I have solid systems & workflows in place, I came home to….

– Inbox zero (thank goodness for HoneyBook & email templates!!!!)

– Booking 3+ weddings, including a $12K wedding (I still can’t believe it!!)

– My fall weddings being prepped & ready for!

It’s AH-MAZING what solid systems & workflows can do to help you get HOURS of your life back!!

If you’re looking to update the backend of your business before the busy fall season rolls around, then head to the Resources Shop to get started!
