Coronavirus coronavirus coronavirus coronavirus? Coronavirus coronavirus coronavirus coronavirus. Coronavirus! Coronavirus coronavirus coronavirus. Coronavirus coronavirus. Is that what your feed is looking like these days? MINE TOO! What a coincidence! So while we are all sharing hand washing tips, songs that last 20 seconds, and our favorite activities to combat cabin fever, I thought I’d throw […]

Five Show Recommendations If You’re Stuck Inside

Is it just ingrained in our generation to always have a side project? Because I’m totally a full time photographer BUT over the last year, I’ve found myself slipping into little side projects to fuel my creative energy. If you hated that I just said “Fuel my creative energy,” it’s okay, I kind of hated […]

Click Bloom: A New Pop Up Shop

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 15. Do you ever get selective hearing? Maybe you’re reading a book and nodding along with the author until she says something you don’t […]

Going Full Time Month 15

I always love it when people say they practice yoga. Or they practice meditation. There’s a certain humility to the word practice. It insinuates a journey towards a level of proficiency that is earned over time with effort. It implies that you start out as a beginner, you’re not very good at it, and then […]

I had always hated this saying. I would imagine standing on the top of a tall building, looking down at certain death and someone behind me would say, “Go ahead. If you jump, a net will suddenly appear out of nowhere and catch you.” Would you believe them? I wouldn’t. I mean, how does that […]

Jump and the Net Will Appear

HEY UNITED! United 2019 is right around the corner and I couldn’t be more excited! This will be my 5th year attending and I noticed a lot of people in the FB Group are asking, “What can I expect?” And I know the feeling… all those tiny little questions like, “How will I get to […]

Showit United: What to Expect

Here it is. Month eleven. ELEVEN. How did that happen? I’m sure I did a million things wrong in the last eleven months, but each month, I feel like I’m really excited to see what comes next. So I must be doing at least one thing right. Right? Month eleven was a good month. It […]
