Before I began writing this post on creating a work routine for entrepreneurs and creatives, I originally planned on sharing what I specifically do for my daily work routine. But as I was writing, I started feeling like what I was doing wasn’t actually helping you establish your own routine. As much as I love […]

Working out. We know we should do it, but more often than not, it feels like something that’s interrupting our day. Our to-do lists are already jam packed and going to the gym is just another thing we have to add. Because of how daunting working out seems, we usually talk ourselves out of going. We think there are more important things to do and that exercise doesn’t take priority over those tasks. We make plans to start working out regularly when time frees up and that it’ll eventually become a part of our routine when we’re less busy.

Every business owner goes through anxiety. You have to! There’s so much care that goes into this thing YOU’VE built and there are a lot of unknowns that come with the process of being successful. You don’t know when you’ll get your next inquiry, you don’t necessarily know if you’ll still be a business owner five years from now and sometimes you don’t even know the next time you’ll get paid.
ALL of this causes us to have anxiety and, unfortunately, when we get stressed, we turn to social media to relax and unwind. Yet, we aren’t able to. When we get on Facebook or Instagram, we’re flooded with posts talking about how wonderful everyone else’s business is. Everywhere we look, we’re reminded that we’re not doing nearly as well as we think we should be. It becomes a comparison game.

Hi, friends! Since we’re getting close to the end of the week, I’m getting ready to head in to my sixth wedding weekend in a row! When I first started photographing weddings, I dreamed of shooting every weekend I could, but completely underestimated how much energy it would take! Weddings take a ton of work since you’re constantly going physically and mentally. You’re working nonstop anywhere between 6-12 hours and basically don’t catch a break until later in the evening!
It can get pretty overwhelming, but there are things you can start implementing in your daily life to prevent having major burn out during a busy wedding season! With all the craziness going on, it’s important for you to come to each wedding feeling as relaxed & refreshed as possible!

One of my favorite parts of being a wedding photographer is when I get to photograph weddings in a new place! So, you can imagine my excitement when I found out I would be photographing Katie and Adam’s wedding at the LDS Temple in Phoenix! However, the perfection of this day went far beyond their location!
Their marriage created an atmosphere that radiated excitement. From the moment the doors of the temple opened, everyone knew the two of them were so ready to be married. When they came out, they had the biggest smiles, Adam proudly raised his arm in the air and their families cheered ecstatically!

While Zach and Emily were going to school in Flagstaff, Arizona, they were also planning their wedding for a beautiful summer day in Corona, California. They may have planning from a state away, but everything came together SO perfectly!

I thought this post would be suiting for Tuesday since it used to be my least favorite day of the week! To me, Tuesday is the least motivational day of the week. I can think of ways to stay productive any other week day.
