Weddings are my jam, but I love getting breaks from them to take family portraits. There isn’t a single season or time of year that’s the best time to get your family portraits taken (especially in Tahoe, but I travel, too!). It’s not about when you show up to get your photos taken, but how you show up. Here are a few, low-stress ways you can prepare for a smooth family portrait session.
People who have built their careers around hospitality, service, travel and events have seen their income dry up overnight. I know that I am not alone. No self-employed person is safe. From Uber drivers to bartenders to your salon worker or massage therapist, we’re all feeling it. I feel your pain as I too am in a huge state of limbo. With event cancellations happening and more looming, everything feels upended and stressful. It’s time to get practical. It’s time to use our ingenuity. It’s time to figure out how to bring in income when there is no chance of having any right this moment. Aside from sending my resume to Whole Foods and scouring the internet for remote work options (as I’m sure we all are), my other option is to lean on my community, which is you, my clients and friends, who have utilized my services year after year.

Ahhh, it’s that time of year again, when 90% of new year’s resolutionists have quit working on those resolutions. Gyms are empty again, the healthy section of the grocery store is once again fully stocked, and all the extra money that was put into a savings account is spent again. The excitement period has passed, which is why this is the perfect time to actually start on resolutions or goals for yourself. After all, what better than the shortest month of the year to work on meeting goals? Here's some New Year Resolution Tips to help you find a place to start with intentions that will help you create positive changes and space in your life. Dry January? #neveragain
