2019 | It’s Like Grad School



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…

Hi! How are you? Thinking of lots of my clients lately and hoping you’re doing well no matter where life has taken you! I’ve been laying low. Loving on my kiddos, friends, sisters, and partners. They’re all taking great care of me, too! Working my booty offf. Trying to eat healthy and navigate adulting more […]

The in between

Life has been very romantic lately. Unknown and confusing and both flighty and grounded all at once. I remember being 14 and seeing my entire life by your side. Life is wild. I remember a water bottle and abandoned bleachers. I remember axe body spray and the way I had never been kissed. I know […]

Nirvana & I think of you

I hope you know better than to think I’d want to be anywhere but here right now. It was true on NYE and it’s true right now in my car outside the café. This may have felt seamless. Too seamless. Happenstance. But I’m here on purpose, now. I see your soft heart and I see […]

I hope you know better

You’ll walk through a glittering white veil, uncharacteristically soft compared to what you’ll find behind it. It has no need to keep you out. You quickly realize it’s the aura within that turns most around. The texture disorients. I’ll already be inside. What do you see? Upon first impression, you’re in a desert. Interesting considering […]

What Do You See?
