2019 | It’s Like Grad School

Jan

15

Happy New Year Friends, Brides, Brides-To-Be, Mom and Grandma! 😉 I am so so stinking excited about what is to come this year. I am working full time at Taco Time to 100% fund my education as a Fine Art Wedding Photographer. Every month, I will have education goals and be sharing who I am studying under.

2015: SJP Was Born. I spent the year wanting to throw my laptop across the room and torch my camera as I learned the ins and outs of the digital photography world.
2016: I figured out a formula to book as many weddings as I wanted and got to work doing exactly that.
2017: …I learned what it felt like to be OVERBOOKED OVERWORKED and UNDERVALUED.
2018: I recovered from 2017. Started a few intensive photography classes. Photographed 23 weddings and learned what a comfortable schedule felt like for me and my family. I looked up from my laptop and noticed I wasn’t in the “style” of photography I wanted to be in.
2019: Decided to “go back to school” to become the best damn fine art wedding photographer you’ve ever met.

January Education Goals & Classes:

My main focus for January is completing all of the education I’ve already invested in. This month I will be influenced by:

Katelyn James

KJ All Access. I will be discontinuing my subscription with this at the end of the month!

I have found my desire to be influenced by a different approach to wedding photography.

Amy & Jordan Demos 

Posing Course. I’ve completed about 90% of this course so I just need to circle around to the end.

Kylee Ann Studios

Currently in 90 Days of Marketing. Need to circle back to review updates to the Complete Marketing Course.

Justin & Mary

Black & White Editing/Working with their Monochrome Collection. I am about 60% through the J&M Lighting Course.

It was this course that made me realize the difference between where I am, and where I want to be with clear vision. 

Getting a little balsy here but (seo) watch me become…

Broken sublimity. “I am because you wouldn’t have it any other way.” You, are not. I should have heard that. They weren’t an illusion on my mountain. They were fixed in the sky. A planet with gravitational pull that kept my feet on the ground. A united reality where I slept safely. A further joke […]

Becky booked Ethan’s Baseball Senior Photos with The Studio about a year before we were able to finally document them. I’m so happy we finally got together to document a special time for their whole family and especially Ethan! Becky and I first met when I photographed her and Aaron’s engagement photos at the Milton […]

We’ve officially been nomadic for 18 months and we find ourselves getting cozy in Lake Chelan, Washington for the summer! With two weddings remaining summer 2022, we’re preparing to leave the state, but not just yet. I feel the need to stay close to my couples around their wedding dates which puts us not traveling […]

Eighteen Months Nomadic

I’m celebrating. In a family suite at Little Creek. By a dreamy electric fireplace in dusk window light. There’s the sound of little boys watching cartoons in another room and Dinah munching food while I sip Grapefruit Pompelini. Clynn’s at a Poker Tournament. Laughing, I’m sure. Winning? Most likely. Dropping a hand or two out […]
