In November of 2018, I left my full time job to pursue photography full time. Every month since then I’ve blogged what I learned from the previous month. This is month 21. You get to define success. This is something I’ve heard over the last several years at various conferences and webinars, seminars and virtual meet ups. […]

Going Full Time Month 21

Officially this style is called a hotel/motel keychain.  I think of them as Summer Camp keychains though. Opening the door to your cabin in the woods after spending the day paddling around the lake. Which one do you see it as? I’m so excited to announce these guys are now on sale in the Click […]

New to Click Bloom: Desert Dreamer Hotel Keychain

Desert Dreamer Hotel Keychain

Look what just hit the Click Bloom shop! I started collecting enamel pins about three years ago. It used to be that I would collect smashed pennies when I traveled but then I started seeing enamel pins and they were all so creative and expressive. Over time, they started to tell a story of all […]

In November of 2018, I left my full time job to pursue photography full time. Every month since then I’ve blogged what I learned from the previous month. This is month 20. “I don’t wanna work.” It was one of those days. I pulled the covers up over my head, only interested in drowning out the daylight […]

Going Full Time Month 20

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any non-branding work but I couldn’t help sharing these sweet images from Baby Lennon’s 6 month session at Agritopia in Gilbert. With a 6 month old, you can never tell if the baby is going to be an angel with smiles for the camera, or a fussy bundle […]

In November of 2018, I left my full time job to pursue photography full time. Every month since then I’ve blogged what I learned from the previous month. This is month 19. I sat in my blue office chair, Leo happily dancing around my keyboard, his feet hitting the delete and esc keys at the most […]

Going Full Time Month 19

In November of 2018, I left my full time job to pursue photography full time. Every month since then, I’ve blogged what I learned from the previous month. This is month 18. I asked my mom how old I was and while she didn’t remember, she did say, “Little enough that your feet didn’t reach the […]

Going Full Time Month 18

So often, I hear people say something that makes me cringe when it comes to photography and photographers. It’s that “a good photographer should be able to make anything look great.” Maybe they’ve seen a wedding couple, standing next to a muddy rain puddle, a photographer laying flat on the ground and then a side […]

Branding with Shital

When I was still little, my Uncle gave me the most beautifully illustrated copy of Little Women and I’ve treasured it throughout the years. Little Women became my favorite book (and later my favorite movie). More than a few times through quarantine, I’ve felt like one of the March sisters, at home, finding new ways […]
