We’ve been receiving this email for years and we haven’t done a post on it yet?! Here we go pals! The lenses we need for weddings and portraits — and why! FIRST THINGS FIRST: I’m the realest. Just kidding! But really, I am going to tell this so honestly and probably with ZERO technical terms…

Three Different Ways To Approach Uncle Bobs | Photography

Originally I had a big old lengthy video post for this! It was last year and it was ready to roll out, but then the next weekend right before I had planned to post it, I had an uncle Bob situation at a wedding and decided to throw this concept on the back burner. So…it’s coming…

Transfer It To Trello | Seaside Sessions VIDEO BLOG

There is no shame in this disheveled mom hair, drool spot on shoulder and squealing baby just in time to wrap up the video blog…this is my life, and I’m making it work for me hahaha! So you guys, we are BIG believers in this new system of not just leaving every thing on little…

Salt Air Motherhood Experience | Outer Banks Workshop!

A pattern started to develop over the past couple of years, and I finally caught on. I was mostly mentoring women who were either thinking about becoming mothers or already were.

Haha! Unless you’re looking into professional equipment, I don’t know of any point and…

Campaign for Zane! | Fowler Studios

You want to talk about the most selfless hearts around?! I will never forget sitting down with Susan at Panera in Virginia Beach a couple of years ago for mentoring. I remember going home and saying Mike, I really really really like this girl! I always have a great time mentoring but Susan has this incredible…

Maternity Leave-ish | Business Owning Mamas

Over the past couple of years, I’ve been lucky enough to read some sweet and trusting emails from moms-to-be who own their own businesses wondering how long they need to take for maternity leave when their new little one arrives! Being your own boss is SUCH a blessing in so many ways, but as so…

2015 Weddings In Review! | Amanda Hedgepeth Photography

Putting this together ALWAYS gets me. I remember the swipe of the hotel keys, the mud on the wheels of my camera bag at the end of the night. The brides that got to feel the baby kick, the way he looked at her coming down the aisle like he was the luckiest man in…

Boomerang for Gmail + 2-4 AM | Small Businesses

All I can think about right now are those tacos from Bad Bean. It’s 3:29 in the morning and I would give anything to bust up in that restaurant and get myself three of those chicken soft tacos with cheese and a side of sour cream, but that’s not going to happen because it’s quite…
