Make Waves Monday!!

Hey there!  Happy Monday!  I’d like to share what I’ve been up to lately.  Earlier this year I teamed up with Brianna Marie Photography to offer and host a styled shoot each month.  It’s been a whirlwind to say the least, but it’s been totally worth it.  I’ve learned so much about how to create something beautiful through a collaborative effort with other creatives and it’s been so amazing.  However, the more shoots we host the more I’m finding myself looking for something more.

One of the reasons photographers participate in a styled shoot is to build their portfolio and my reasons for hosting them were no different.  Brianna and I quickly realized that we were doing an injustice to the creative community if we weren’t offering some sort of education along with our shoots.  So, on our journey to offer more to our peers we created Styled – An Informational Brunch, which kicked off this past Saturday!  This idea was a bit scary and a little stressful, but we went for it!  And, it was such a success!!  We had an awesome panel of amazingly talented wedding industry creatives, who graciously shared their knowledge with our participants.

This event was exactly what we needed to kick start our new journey of educating our peers and making sure the priority is community and not competition.  So, with all of this being said, I’m so excited to announce that we are already working on the next Styled – An Informational Workshop, which is coming in June.  I admit that it hasn’t been easy and at times I’ve wondered why we should continue pushing to be greater, but God knows our purpose and this is what he has called on me to do.  To use my talents and my ability to connect with others, and to help others grow and succeed in life.  So, if you’re at a point in your career where you feel stuck or scared to start something new, know that God already knows you can do it and that he’s giving you the opportunity to be brave.  So, do it!  Make waves my friend.  It’s going to be big, and beautiful!!!  Have a great week everyone!
