"A Pessimist Sees The Difficulty In Every Opportunity; An Optimist Sees The Oppo
"A Pessimist Sees The Difficulty In Every Opportunity; An Optimist Sees The Opportunity In Every Difficulty." – Winston Churchill⁣ .⁣ This is me in one of my favorite coffee shops here in #boisedowntown called #districtcoffeehouse. ⁣ .⁣ Being a photographer, I feel so comfy behind the camera, and the moment when I get in from of it, I don't know what to do and how to pose myself. #camerashy⁣ .⁣ One of the tricks that helps me to overcome the camera shyness, is holding something in your hand or having some kind of action going, like in this picture. By the way thanks to my gorgeous friend @lilyardor for taking this picture! ⁣ .⁣ By holding something in your hand it automatically makes you feel more relax and #photogenic. ⁣ .⁣ Hope You find this tip helpful - to feel more relax in front of the camera.⁣ Ciao 😘⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .

Hey there! I’ve noticed a few new faces around here so I thought I’d introduce myself!. . I’m Kacey and this is my little landing spot for all things life, interior design & style. I believe everyone should have access to a home that is both beautiful & functional. We can have both! I’ve started partnering with @opendoorsofhope and always have a great time working with my sister friend @strengthforthedays on multiple design projects with @yourteamday . . I’m married, have four amazing kids + one I’ll meet in Heaven. I work part time for my home church that I love and go to school to round out my Interior Design degree. Things are busy and messy and hard and great. But I also believe in always having lipgloss & I hide candy from my kids so that helps. 😉 . I’m in North Carolina this weekend helping my friend style her new home that we’ve worked on together long distance. I’ll be sharing the progress and we are both so excited! I wrangled my Dad to help and he’s already hard at work. 😊 . • • • • • • • • • • • • #acolorstory#colorismyjam#dslooking#designinspo#designideas#designtrends#designlovers#designinspiration#designdaily#crispandclean#scandanavianstyle#interiordesign#inspiration#handmadehome#stylebydesign#decor#homesweethome#theeverygirl#theeverygirlathome#lovewhereyoudwell#howyouhome#myhomevibe#thedelightofdecor#houseandhome#cozy#cozyhome#hygge # simplicity #fridayintroductions

Hello again! For those of you who are new around here: This is me, Georgie, the face behind the camera! 👋🏻 I'm a northern lass with a southern accent, I've lived all over (the world even!) but am now happily married and settled in Northamptonshire, England. 🇬🇧 I love the summer sun (this week has been amazing for this!!!! 🤩) music on vinyl and fresh grass between my toes! I have three kids who are loud, competitive and drive me absolutely crazy but I wouldn't have it any other way (well just the odd quiet day would be nice 😉). I once dreamed (and trained hard!) to be a professional dancer/singer so I now love that I can be so creative in my job and I am totally honoured that I get to capture a bit of people's life stories with my camera! Tell me if you would 😉, what would your dream job be if you could start it right now? #northamptonshirephotographer#lifestylephotographer#familyphotography#familyphotographer#childphotography#wellingboroughphotographer#lightandairyphotography#childrensphotography#georgiabethphotography#weddingphotography#lovelife#fridayintroductions#thisisme#introductions

Hi 👋🏻 I don’t think I’ve ever done a #fridayintroductions mostly because I don’t remember it is Friday until it’s Saturday 🤷‍♀️ But enough other friends are doing it today I remembered and thought I’d jump on the bandwagon ☺️ * We are a military family, and we see it as a platform God has given us to love and serve those He moves us near. So we are thankful, and find Jim Elliot’s quote encouraging: “Wherever you are, be all there.” * I buy more books than I could ever read. I’d choose savory over chocolate any day. Tea and coffee are both my favorite. I buy a new food item at the grocery store just about every week just to figure out what it is and how to use it. <— that has proven to be an excellent exercise that has expanded all of us AND opened up great doors for conversations with others. * We love having people in our home and it’s the best when people invite themselves over bc I’m really bad at thinking to extend an invitation. I’m also really bad at introducing people to each other. And while we are at it; I’m bad at making the bed and I leave my coffee cup laying around until I need to hunt it down the next morning.

It’s Tuesday, but I’m doing #fridayintroductions today ... because I can, Stan! 🙃 I’m Annie. Mom of Brooks (4 years, pictured), Jude (22 months), and unborn babe (32 weeks gestation). 👦🏼🧒🏼👶🏼 My husband is Philip and he took all these photos (swipe to see my awkward attempts at posing by myself) and didn’t complain audibly. 🏆 I have a few hats, but they all happen to fit under the umbrella of Bible teacher and that’s kind of terrifying. I’m a full time mom, part time ministry director, and I write. The most consistent spot I write is here on instagram, but I also write a weekly devotional series, sporadically on my blog, and am working on a couple Bible studies. 📓 other random facts: I have a biology degree and a masters in maternal and child health 🤓 Enneagram Three 🧠 halfway thru season 3 of Stranger Things 🧟‍♂️ love fruity candy over chocolates 🍬 Tell me.... one random fact and your favorite bible verse (or the first one that popped in your head). My fave is in the comments. Oh and my friend Marissa @marssmall sent me this @dwellandslumber and it’s soft as jammies. 🙌🏼

“May the space between where I am and where YOU want to be, inspire me” 
The com
“May the space between where I am and where YOU want to be, inspire me” The comparison game-whether it’s your business or your personal life it’s a struggle. I know I struggle with it a lot, and there is a place for it. There is a healthy growth that comes from looking to others and thinking “gosh I want that, I’m going to work hard to get there”. It’s ok to compare and it’s ok to learn from others. Where it becomes a problem is when that voice in your head (and heart) says “I’m so frustrated they have it all...I’ll never get there.” I’ve been super guilty of this, and I still struggle with this. My husband can, for sure, attest to that. There are so many incredible newborn photographers I look up to @sonkissedphotography@rachelvanoven@nikkilenaephotography that I’m in just awe of everything they do- of their gorgeous work, beautiful studios, and success. Every once in a while, I wish there was a magic wand to get there. But there is no joy in that. There is no pride in creating something if it’s just handed to you. I’ll be the first to admit though, it’s really hard to not feel behind the curve of “everyone else”. Then the other day I got a DM from a photographer who had started a business a few years ago and she told me all she wanted was to be where I was. She dreamed about having a studio, and leaving her day job. I cry now I even thinking about it. Wherever you are in your life, someone is looking at you thinking “gahhh I wish I was there”. In the simplest way, when the world seems insurmountable and overwhelming, try to remember all your blessings. Hold on to the courage to want more and dream bigger-while appreciating the road behind you and the ground you’re standing on. PC: @rachelzeephoto

Raise your hand if you’ve ever been intimidated by successful business owners. 🙋
Raise your hand if you’ve ever been intimidated by successful business owners. 🙋🏻‍♀️ I never felt like I was good enough to hang out with them, sit with them, be friends with them. I felt like it was an elite group I hadn’t earned my way into. When I went to my first #hrcn meeting, I was SO afraid to really speak up- I saw Tatiana of @tealeagleboutique and was too afraid to say a damn word, because she’s AMAZING. I was also completely fan girling over @angiejanine (who also helped me come up with the tagline for my business that night! I mean, holy crap!) Yes, my little business is chuggin’ along- but I never associated myself with their level of success. And WHY? Success isn’t always measured monetarily. Success can be looked at SO many different ways. Success for me, was stepping out of my comfort zone, making friends, making connections, and realizing, these badass women are just like me. We all share the same fears, love, passions, etc… Which is why I’m here to tell you, I never would have thought I’d have Tatiana in front of my lens, because she’s worked with SO many amazing photographers. And folks, you see it in the photo. There she is. It’s a day where I can say I’m my own version of successful. I’m proud of me. I’m proud to call all the incredible women I’ve connected with my friends. THAT makes me successful. Tell me- what does your personal success look like? • • • #fridayintroductions#757photographer#hamptonroadsphotographer#familyphotographer#couplesphotographer#757collective#lifestylephotographer#mompreneur#momboss#creativemom#communityovercompetition#momblogger#familyblogger#motherhoodrising#ramblingsofamother#mynameismama#joyfulmama#virginiabeach#motherhood#momlife#homeschoolmama#stayathomemama#momsofinstagram#momtog#unitedinmotherhood

Hi 👋🏻 I'm Elle (pronounced L-E) and I've noticed quite a few new faces following me lately so I thought I'd do a bit of an intro despite it not being Friday. #fridayintroductions is now #tuesdayintroductions⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Firstly, the most obvious thing is I have the most beautiful, best dog in the world (what dog owner doesn't think that about their own dog?). Her name is Kenzie and she's a 4 year old rescue husky that we adopted at the start of this year. She has consumed my life. She is my baby.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Other quick facts:⁠⠀ 🔹I have an accent, it's American, I was born in Florida. You can now stop asking me where I'm from when you first meet me.⁠⠀ 🔹I'm currently learning Spanish and brushing up on my Korean by watching K-Dramas (HAS ANYONE WATCHED ARTHDAL CHRONICLES AND CAN WE TALK ABOUT IT??)⁠⠀ 🔹Current book I'm reading is Salt Path by Raynor Winn (part of the book club I'm in)⁠⠀ 🔹Besides being a photographer I'm also a yoga teacher--primarily teaching Pregnancy Yoga (you can follow all that stuff over on @ellenarbrook)⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ SO TELL ME SOME THINGS ABOUT YOU!⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ #londonphotographer#makersgonnamake#meetthemaker#leamingtonspa#leamington#leamingtonlife#loveleamington#leamingtonartists#creativequarter#creativetalk#creativecommunity#leamingtoncreatives#loveleam#risingtidesociety#communityovercompetition#londoncreatives#personalbranding#personalbrandphotographer

I thought I had finally worked up a little courage on Friday to post it for #fridayintroductions, but as you can see, it was a no go! ✨ You see, I’m still trying my hardest to love myself through this transition phase my hair is currently undergoing. It’s been maybe 3 years now since I stopped “relaxing” my hair and yeahhhHhhhHhhh 😩😭🙊🙈 there’s days I want to cry and there’s days I look at how poppin’ my natural curls are and I feel like just maybe I can make it through this thing. Any who, I want to know something you were afraid to do but did it anyway in the comments 👑 I can’t believe I’m hitting the post button y’all 😩🙈🎉 📸: THE @focal_vibez 😘

I’ve been trying to decide what I should paint next in my painting class, and I think this photo I snapped tonight is a contender! Something about water is just so calming to me, although I’ve been told it’s a trickier thing to paint. But how pretty would this be on a wall?? Whether I paint it or print the photo, pretty sure this will be hanging up soon. 😍

Happy MONDAY ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I love reading through #FridayIntroductions and last week I had every intention of doing my first...then..life got in the way. Next thing I know.. it’s Monday. So here I am. On your feed, telling you a little bit about myself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hey 👋 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My name is Rebecca Stacey, a not so small number of people call me Stacey as my first name. It's fine, at this point, I respond to both. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This October will be my 12th year working in the Travel Industry!! 🤯 Feelings of getting old aside, I have had the opportunity to learn the ropes from inspiring professionals (some have turned into friends for life) at these amazing companies @princesscruises@cunardline@vikingcruises and @hctlasvegas 💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ These days I'm the Business Development Manager for Zegrahm @zegrahmexpeditions & International Expeditions @ietravel ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What the heck does that even mean? I travel around the Western United States & Canada speaking with Travel Professionals and travelers about why Expedition Travel is one of THE BEST ways to explore our world.🌏 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My job is made easier by the fact that the 2 brands I represent have been in the expedition travel game for DECADES. This year I've had the chance to really see what Expedition travel is all about while visiting Antarctica, South Georgia and the Falkland Islands and spending a week in the Peruvian Amazon. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I may have been bitten by the travel bug many years ago, but these days, I am ALLLLL about Expedition Travel!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Travel Professionals contact me to learn more about Expedition Travel and what clients are right to explore with us! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #travelprofessional#expeditiontravel#virtuosotravel#sigtn#lifeofabdm#jetsetter#traveladvisor#travelagent#wanderlust#travelcompany#ecotourism#nofilter#southgeorgia#penguins#responsibletravel#signaturetravelnetwork

Let's continue our Q&A with our featured author of the month and author of "Joy
Let's continue our Q&A with our featured author of the month and author of "Joy in Surrender," Deborah Stricklin! (See Part 1 a few posts back!) Q: How did you grow throughout this writing process? A: I have a remarkable editor! He didn't just correct my writing when I needed to make adjustments; he taught me. He has the heart of a teacher, so I grew exponentially in my writing ability as he walked with me through the editing process. Q: What books inspire you? A: I love the broad subject of Christian leadership - reading about church development, focusing on personal growth, and advancing in leadership skills. Books about legacy, destiny, and the dreaming process inspire me. Q: What do you enjoy doing in your free time? A: Summer is my favorite season because I love being outside. I enjoy competing in triathlons (swim, bike, run) during the summer, and my daughter Kirsten and I have a lot of fun training together. I also enjoy teaching a couple of teacher-education classes at our local community college during the school year. I love to read, and I love to spend time with my family. Q: Do you have plans to write more books? What’s next for you? A: I currently have three books in progress. One is about God's incredible grace; I'm almost finished writing that book. One is about parenting (from a grandmother's perspective), and I'm working on that one a little at a time. And the third book has been a new endeavor for me - a client hired me to write her life story. We're about halfway through the book, and I've learned so much along the way. But I think the best outcome from walking through this with her is that she has gained confidence to write books on her own in the future. I'm thrilled that the process has given her the courage to try her hand at writing. What's next for me?? I'm now posting a weekly blog on my website, deborahstricklinministries.com. I have several other things in my heart I'd like to pursue, but my main objective in all of life is to remain close to my Savior and listen for the voice of His Holy Spirit. So, I guess it's best to say I'll simply follow His lead.

I haven't really shown my face lately, so here I am, the face behind the squares
I haven't really shown my face lately, so here I am, the face behind the squares. Well, kind of. 😉 "Sunglasses are my make-up" - yup - that's my motto. It's the easiest, and quickest make-up in Arizona. Sunglasses all day, every day. . . A few other tid-bits about yours truly...😊 I hate the dry crusty milk that builds up on the carton, and I have to clean it off every time I pour milk. . . Chocolate milk and banana bread are a few of my faves, yet I don't have them nearly enough. . . If I had a pottery wheel, glaze, a kiln, and some porcelain, is be doing that too. That porcelain is just the yummiest, buttery, goodness. I miss it. . . I always wanted to become a mom, and then I became one, and I wasn't so sure I was cut out for it, and now that Lilah is a toddler, I love it!...most days. 😉

Wanna know a secret?? I don't actually hate Mondays.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I kinda look forward to getting up, and getting all the things done. If it's not a "get-er-done day"... it's because it's my husbands day off and then it's a "Blake and Kelley day". So honestly they're great! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today is a "Blake and Kelley day" (well until my senior session tonight! haha)! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photo by @nshore_co ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ * ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #kelleyjoimaging#kelleyjoimagingcouples#lifestyleportraits#activecouple#adventureportraits#theasburys#fridayintroductions#couplephotographer#brainerdlakesareaphotographer#blakeandkelley#monday#ilikemondays#aboutme#aboutthephotographer

Don’t let social media control your life 🧿 . . When I deleted my Instagram, I felt like this force paralyzing me finally disintegrated. It made me pay more attention to what was going on in the real world instead of spending four hours watching videos from old Vine stars I’ve seen over and over again A part of me doesn’t regret deleting Instagram from my life. But another part of me wishes I just continued to use it more intentionally. Instagram was toxic for me because I allowed it to be.

Words and wisdom by @thebirthjournal :⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Why journal your birt
Words and wisdom by @thebirthjournal :⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Why journal your birth story? My top two reasons... birthing a baby, however that happens, is a crazy powerful and transformative thing. Not only the physical, emotional, and hormonal process that the mama goes through, but bringing a baby into the world is no small act. Getting your story out pen to paper helps you process the transformation - the beauty, the strength, the hard parts, maybe the trauma. First and foremost, The Birth Journal and writing your birth story with your hands is for you⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And if you choose, one day it can be for your babes. I plan to give my babies The Birth Journal with my handwritten birth stories. I want them to read about the day they were born written in the same handwriting found on the notes in their lunch box. I'd recognize the lines and curves of my mom's handwriting anywhere. Anywhere. And it's powerful. I've kept things my grandmas, mom and dad have written, knowing the warmth of their hands has touched anything they've ever written⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Birth Journal is a guided keepsake journal, beautifully designed, with an inspiring, supportive and practical writing guide. Created from start to finish in the USA⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photo @hmnphotographer⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #birthstory#birthstories#thebirthjournal#birthstorymagic#memorykeeper#guidedjournal#keepsakejournal#babybook#stationerylover#fridayintroductions#rslove#realsimple#aheadofthecurve#thebump#memoirsofmotherhood#journaling#mamahood

I'm REALLY digging the overall trend making a comeback y'all...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I loved them the first time around and i'm here for them once again! How about you?!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you're new around here, I'm Rachel👋⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm the lead photographer, and I run this biz #bossbabe ;)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm also a #momprenuer which means i've got a crazy crew always running underfoot.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I used to love my morning coffee, and then my husband decided he needed to calm down on the caffeine intake (y'all he was drinking like 3 yeti cups a day🙀) and he quit making it in the morning...which meant I quit drinking it because #lazy and I don't have time for all that🤣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now I just like to make tea in the morning! Altho the way i've started making it does not make it any less work...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Black Tea of choice, 1 tsp of Tumeric powder, 1/2tsp of Black Pepper and Maple Syrup (the real deal).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's delicious AND anti inflammatory!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm a #crunchymom and our family is #veganaf 😏⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, we love everyone in whatever journey they may be on and are not here to try to make anyone feel bad for their own personal dietary choices.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You can find out more about all of that on my personal insta @driskellclanmomma if you have more questions💁‍♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Above all else, we love Jesus in this house. And that looks like so many different things. From studying His word, to teaching our kids How to be more and more like Him. We all have different gifts of the spirit in our home, but we consider Service to be one that everyone should strive for regardless of whether it comes naturally or not. Which is one of our core values here at RDP...to SERVE well.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tell me something I don't know about you below!!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you @jenbrazeal for coming over and snapping a few pics! It's so amazing to have such a great group of photog friends to do life + business with!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #weddingphotographer#entreprenuer#fridayintroductions#mondayvibes

If you are
Can I do introductions on a Monday instead of Friday? Sure hope so. 🌺 If you are new to Alena Botanica, welcome! If you have been with us for the long haul, thanks for your continued support. As most of you know, I am the Alena in Alena Botanica. My last name is not Botanica (yes, people ask me that). My business has morphed over the years, as most good businesses do (I think I am starting AB 3.0 right about now). I started selling my work in the form of Plant Art photos on canvas and Living Art containers in 2010. (Anyone still have a piece?) 🌵 . My passion is plants, their science, art & architecture, and it informs all of my work. My background is in horticulture and landscape design and I spent years designing gardens in Vermont. I call myself a Designer now, but I have the heart of an artist and plant geek and walking gardens, taking photographs are my still my favorite hobbies. In 2012, I decided to put my photographs on Apparel & Home Goods, donning the world with botanical scarves, hats, pillows, tee-shirts and even underwear (anyone still have a pair?). ⭐️⭐️⭐️ I worked in Craft Beer for many years, and built a Hop Art brand that helped introduce and connect Art to the beer industry (see more on that in last week’s post). After a New Mexico sabbatical and selling my home to move West, I have now been in Portland, Oregon for almost 5 years. I am 46 years old and almost 21 months sober and for the past two years have been redefining the business with a focus on Drinkware, Beverages & the Sober Lifestyle. It’s been morphing into an inclusive drinking brand. Fun facts about me: I like Stevie Nicks, hair metal, I am half-Canadian, I eat A LOT of french fries, I love Mocktails, cruiser bicycles, cheap thrift store jewelry & I have a killer sense of humor. Humor, Love, Art & Sobriety are some of my life’s greatest gifts and the AB Brand is working to inspire & connect us to these things through Plants, Art & Beverages. Thanks for planting a connection with us, let’s sip a mocktail together soon. - Alena🤘🌵🇨🇦 . . . #alenabotanica#alenabotanicalifestyle#fridayintroductions on monday #pdxdesigner#plantgeek#schwinn#soberlife#soberissexy#botanicalartist

Investing in your business is definitely not an easy thing to do. Especially as entrepreneurs who think we can do it all. 👩‍💻Marketing? Call me an expert. 🗄️Taxes? I'm a part-time accountant. 🖥️Website? That's what templates are for. But sometimes it is better to skip the headache and leave it to a professional. I talk a lot about the importance of high-quality photographs on your website, but the text is what will keep them on there longer as well as introduce them to your brand and your personality. The latest post is all about when it is time to hire a professional copywriter. If you need some guidance on who to hire, here are some of my faves: @ashlynscarter@tatumsnodgrass@hudsonandco_ / @amyschutte_@wildspiritco@samanthakgarner@erikafitzgerald_@kaylahollatz

Hey, friend! 👋🏼⠀ .⠀ It’s been a hot minute since I did a #fridayintroductions ⠀ .⠀ For anybody who’s new around here, welcome!⠀ .⠀ I’m Holly and I teach women how to live a life of less stress and more grace. ⠀ .⠀ Fun Facts:⠀ 1️⃣ ⠀ I’m a 7w6 on the Enneagram so I’m a barrel of fun, but can at times be “as nervous as a cat” 🐈 as my hubby Ryan likes to say!⠀ 2️⃣ ⠀ It’s pretty normal for me to have an iced coffee in hand. ⠀ ☕️ ⠀ My fav at the moment is a Sbux double-shot/half-caf/no classic/heavy cream/3 shots SF vanilla.⠀ 🙌🏼⠀ No worries, coffee is about the only thing complicated about me because I like to keep things SIMPLE and EASY in life so I can live light and live free.⠀ 3️⃣ ⠀ Ryan and I have been married almost 2 years and have a rental property business in addition to our “day” jobs.⠀ 🏡 ⠀ Basically, we’re #obsessed with all things HGTV, HAR, and our most common day dates are grabbing a couple of coffees to go and hit up open houses on the weekends.⠀ 😂⠀ I know. We are so cool it’s unbelievable. ⠀ 😎😆🙈🤣⠀ Your turn! Tell me something I may not know about you yet, sweet woman!

After a busy wedding weekend, it’s Editing Day! Well, to be honest, I spend a little bit of time each day editing either personal or client work because for the past 7.5 years I have tried to take at least one picture a day. I have never been great at writing in journals so documenting my life through photography has been perfect. And it’s so fun to look back and see what we were doing a year, or five years, ago! 💕

“Why am I breaking out all over my face!?” “It’s probably from stress.” Umm, he’s probably not wrong. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My last few posts have mentioned that life is busy, and really this one is no different. My brain and energy are pulled in numerous directions and trying to stay on top of it all is well.... not my best doing. It might be time to hire a personal assistant 😆 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Though I have a thousand things going on this summer, they are all. good. things!! From expanding my business to planning parties and events, and getting ready to head back to HAITI {after three loooong years} next month! All. Good. Things. 💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This week I am helping host a Trivia Night fundraiser for @lotfm.haiti that will be taking place on Friday evening from 6-9pm @kindrednorth. It’s going to be a fun night filled with trivia rounds, incredible prizes donated by local businesses, yummy food and comfy T-shirt’s - all for supporting some incredible people in Haiti. I’ll be posting more about it today in my stories; so if you’re interested in knowing more, look there! And if you don’t have anything going on this Friday, bring some friends and come hang out with us! It’s all for a good cause 🥰 Happy Monday, friends!

A note to my 18-year-old self: Every single experience, no matter how boring or
A note to my 18-year-old self: Every single experience, no matter how boring or insignificant or horrible it may feel at the time, can teach you something. ✨ I've had a LOT of internships, minimum-wage service jobs & unpaid roles over the past 10+ years. A few of them were wonderful, and lots of them were either grueling or so boring that I wished I was back at the grueling one again. To be honest, at the time, it kind of felt like I was just checking a box or picking up a paycheck with nothing else to show for it. I felt discouraged, confused about my future, apathetic and many times, regretful that I hadn't found or chosen a different option. AND YET. 👏Every 👏single 👏one of those roles contributed to where I am today. It's not a stretch. I'm not exaggerating. I think @arianagrande can back me up here when I say: one taught me hard work, one taught me patience, one taught me technical skills, one taught me how to sell, the list goes on. ✨ College students: find these opportunities and savor them. Volunteer for new roles. Be the hardest working person in the room. Soak in every ounce of knowledge at your internship. Be a master of your favorite hobby. There is no degree in owning your own creative business. You will never receive an offer letter to be your own boss. Take ownership of the opportunities you've been given and then say *thank u next* and make something beautiful from what you learn.

I've been going through old photos, looking to share some of what I love. I decided to share a series of travel photos from my pre-kids, international non-profit career years. Consider it an extended #fridayintroductions (not just on Fridays); for nearly 10 years, international travel was something I did a few times a year and loved immensely. Perhaps it'll be part of my story again in the future - who knows? But going through these has been delightful and I hope you enjoy walking with me down memory lane. . This photo is one of the relative few I took on my first #film camera - a Canon AE1 Program - and I took it on my first of five trips to #Cambodia over about 7 years. It was my first international work trip, and I fell in love - with the countryside, the people & culture, the food, the warmth, and the excitement of visiting another country. . Do you have a favorite travel memory? What was special about it? . . . . . . #travelphotography#filmphotography#travelphotographyasia#filmarchive#visitcambodia#travelcambodia#beauty#wonder#nature#femalenaturephotography#canon#ae1program

Truth: I have traveled 6 weeks
Here is to #FridayIntroductions on #mondays | 😂 Truth: I have traveled 6 weeks straight with a 3 week break in between which essentially I focused on some #selfcare while doing #grounding and #editing work. Feeling a little more settled in our new place. A better sense of gratitude and balance, a bit more of excitement as our photography divisions grow. So appreciative of everything that is come our way... my swift intro to compliment priors! Here are a few things about me: 1. Talking about myself tends to be a bit of a challenge. (Getting better at this) 2. Why Photography? I love finding emotion in my captures when shooting a wedding or a lifestyle branding project 3. I find much love and understanding in the goodness that surrounds me. 4. I have taken a break from functional workouts, body needs a break. I still meditate. 5. I speak Spanish + Spanglish [ if that is even a language; I guess when raised in #Miami, you have that ability] 6.I’ve become more forgiving and less harsh on my own habits. Accepting is healing. 7. Went to school for 12 years and got 3 degs and zero debt ;) 8. I adore animals - I have 2 fur-babes: Boca, a cat + Cesar, an adorable German Shepherd. 9. In my spare time I run a wellness site + IG account to motivate others in their own journey. 10. I would not be here without the support of my husband, @affirmliveconnect who never batted an eye, when I told him I was quitting my careers to do something I was truly passionate about: Photography. 11. I have an extraordinary tribe of friends both who are amazing humans and creatives in the wedding + commercial industry - I’d be lost without them. I am so grateful for y’all 12. I LOVE COFFEE + TEA 🍵 Happy Monday Friends ☕️☕️ #livethelittlethings#photography#floridaphotographer#madeformore#myfridayintroductiononmonday#gettoknowme#northcarolinaweddingphotographer#weddings#mastinlabs#Photographer#entrepenour#alliemillerphotography#flowers#engaged#allthebrides#allthefeels#life#ME#THISISME#48#jacksonvilleweddingphotographer

It’s MONDAY !!! 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾 Just wanted to hop on here and introduce ourselves to you guys ! We are a family of four that love learning, travel and culture but most of all we love being together! In a culture that is filled with being busy and disconnected, we want to pursue time with one another during this short season of parenting our little ones !!! 💗💗💗Being a multicultural family 👱🏻‍♂️👩🏽👧🏻👦🏻 was the great catalyst of us wanting to travel and learn more about our heritage and identity. I am 1/2 African-American 🇺🇸 and 1/2 Puerto Rican 🇵🇷 and my husband is 1/2 German 🇩🇪 and Irish /Scottish! My side of the family recently had an ancestry dna test done and we found out a TON more about our heritage ( Reveal post coming soon)! Culture is a big part of our lives! You can find us at the museums or children’s theatres in the city or on top of a mountain in a national park or splashing in the Gulf during sunset. We think different is good and new experiences,places,and people are an amazing way to teach kids about identity and culture. 🗺 We are honestly finding ourselves disliking the idea of “normal” more and more and last year we sold our suburban home for a #mortgagefree fixer upper to clear up space to do more of the things we are passionate about like travel,ministry, and family time! 🏠 So lets do it! Let’s give our kids roots + wings 🌱✈️ , let’s guide them in a childhood rich with culture and travel, let’s learn right along side them and run from the status -quo! Let’s experience the world! ✈️🌎 🚙 🌎 #allourcolors#travelwithkids#rootsandwings

#fridayintroductions on Sunday cuz this weekend was a blur, and I’m a bit of a non conformist, also I really like this image from @alyssajoline So hi, it’s me, not in a tree this time. When we were little my dad would play this driving game where he’d ask us to name the crop in the fields as we drove by. Full disclosure I usually went with barley cuz it was just weird enough that I figured I had a better shot. This field is not barley, winter wheat :). This feeling is knowing just a little better than I did before, who I am and what feeds my soul. This is gratitude for both of those, and for you, because I wouldn’t be here without you, I know this. Really, from this big place in my heart, thank you xx

So, I made you a fun, free houseplant quiz where I'll ask you a few questions about your home, preferences, and skill evel and match you with a plant I think you'll love! Plus, afterwards you'll get some emails about how to keep hem alive AND a few more suggestions *just* in case you didn't love, love your results. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Take the quiz at dustyhegge.com/quiz ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌿 Here are some rapid fire facts that you may not know about me: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am OBSESSED with Mary Poppins Returns. They 👏🏼 did 👏🏼 so 👏🏼 good! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have two daughters, both of which I accidentally named after dogs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My husband is hilarious and the world's best omelette chef. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I dream of owning a brick and mortar plant shop called @revivenursery. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have owned several businesses from a long board shop to a women's ministry - honestly, part of me feels embarrassed that those iterations of business didn't work for me. the other part is proud that I keep trying again. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I always order a side of Hollandaise sauce at any breakfast joint. I typically luck the bowl. but can you blame me? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👉🏼 Did you think, "me too!" or "You crazy, Dusty" when you read those facts? TELL ME MORE! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am truly blessed that you are here. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #jesuscoffeeplants

Happy Sunday! I have been slacking a little bit lately between posting, and my goal for Friday Introductions. I apologize so much! But I am here. And I am going to share my introduction today instead . (Like usual that is) I should just keep my introductions on Sundays from now on, huh? Probably. I usually let my kids pick out their clothes 90% of the time. Today my daughter wanted this adorable cat headband, with her cute petal dress. Well, by the end of the day she ended up with the cat headband and a unicorn one. Yes. Both. My youngest here ( who is now being promoted to a big brother, by the way! ) Refuses to let me get pictures without him. 🤷‍♀️ #fridayintroductions#sundayintroductions#imalwayslateforthese#photography#beautiful#passion#style#promotedtobigbrother#canon#edits#instadaily#nevergiveup#instagram#insta#portraits#documentmoments#familyphotography

Oh hey there! So I’m about two days late for #fridayintroductions but what’s new? I never did like following the crowd... 🤣 So yeah, this is me... at 32 weeks pregnant on top of a mountain with two AMAZEBALLS clients on their wedding day. When I started booking 2019, I had no idea I’d be pregnant or delivering halfway through the season. My husband and I had just decided two kids was enough when... oh hello there... baby 3 announced his existence. For the most part, I haven’t slowed down. The bumps have been just that, minor bumps, and we’re 47 days away from meeting baby boy! My clients have been nothing short of amazing (as always) and so far it’s been a wonderful wedding season! If you’re still searching for a wedding photographer in October, November or December 2019, drop me a line! I have limited availability those months and some hiking boots that would love to see snow. 😍☃️

Happy Sunday friends 💖🥂 If you’ve been around this profile a while you have probably noticed I’m on the road ... a lot ✈️ Sometimes it’s for work, others I’m with my husband and of course there’s the rare non-work related trip (I hear this is called a vacation?! 😜). So I wanted to share some fun facts about travel this year... _____________________ . ✔️Number of countries visited - 10 ✔️Number of flights - 36 down, 28 booked so far 🛩 ✔️My husband @billy.heiser travels around 25 weeks a year on tour coaching a professional tennis player 🎾 (hey hey @riske4rewards 🙌🏻) ✔️Around 90% of my weddings involve a flight or weekend away from home 🛫 ✔️This year is a little more intense as we’ve made a conscious effort to try and be on the road with each other if one of us isn’t working 🥰 _____________________ So there's a little backstory as to why we’re always in the air! ☁️ There are definitely times where it’s trying and exhausting - But these are always overshadowed by the events I arrive to shoot or places we get to experience. ✨ _____________________ It’s important to mention that to me busy doesn’t equal success and we’re constantly working on ways to spend more quality time with the ones we love at home 🏡 🐶 But for right now we’ll take the economy class seat in row 25 💺because we are so crazy lucky to be doing what we love. 🎾 📷 by @laurengallowayphotography
