Why I Don’t Have a Separate Instagram for My Business

About two years ago, I decided I wanted to take my photography business up a notch. For me, this looked like sharing about my photography business on Instagram and promoting it to potential clients and friends.

5 Things I Wish I Would’ve Known When I Started Photography

I got my first DSLR camera about eight years ago, and I was so eager to jump right into all things photography! I bought books, watched YouTube videos, and asking all my friends and family to model for me so I could get better. Little by little, I improved enough to the point where people started asking me to take their photos. That little hobby of mine has developed into a full-fledged business that I hope to take full-time after I graduate from college.

Libby & Jeff’s Waco, Texas Engagement Session

I just love these two, and their session was just the best! I know Libby from church, and I was so excited when she asked me to be their wedding photographer! We woke up early on a Sunday morning before church for their engagement session, and ohh man it was cold! But Libby and Jeff braved the chilly, windy weather and we were able to create some magic on the camera! Libby & Jeff, I am so excited to be your wedding photographer, and I can’t wait to celebrate with y’all come April!

4 Things I Wish I Would’ve Known About Being an Introverted Photographer

I’m not gonna lie— there were times in high school where I thought there was no way I’d ever be able to make it as a wedding & portrait photographer because of how introverted I am. I used to seriously struggle to get through a senior shoot without long, awkward pauses that made for an uncomfortable session experience for both me AND my client.
