Hello Beautiful people. A meaningful practice is always to work on things that you are not necessarily the best. I try to teach this to my students as well. It is easy to practice what you are good at and it is a challenge to do what does not come easy.
Layflats have always been terrifying for me, for no reason. I feel unprepared and untaught to handle such creativity. I also truly believe I lack creativity, which is not true. A lesson in self confidence can also come with practice.
Acknowledging that I need to become better at something is good for me. Taking the time to get better at it is a different story. I am full of work excuses and I just need to stop those. My wedding photography is picking up and I am just loving all the new business. This is why I practice, to become better and grow in my business!
ALSO, I LOVE AN OPPORTUNITY to work with another vendor. Since my studio is in downtown Clayton (@downtownclaytonnc) , I want to strive to connect to my fellow business owners right here in this small town. So, I went walking down main street and made a few stops!
First, I stopped in on Flowers By the Neuse (@flowersbytheneuse) and asked if I could get some of their pretty blooms. They more than obliged my request. Then, I stopped by (@mainstreetjewelers_claytonnc) Main Street Jewelry for some awesome bling. **Side note: this is where I get my jewelry (wedding rings) and added diamonds every year!** They not only were helping to help me but they were also willing to help style by picking which ring sets!
I almost had everything ready, except the invitation suite. In Garner, there is a young woman who has a LOT of creativity. She takes BASIC invitation suites and turns them into these BEASTS of a memory. She turns an invite into a talking point. If you want to STUN and AMAZE your guests, you need to reach out to this woman! Kasey with Revelry and Heart (@revelryandheart) is not only a #bosslady but an inspiration. Please make sure you follow her and reach out to her for your invitation needs. Wait until you see what she had created.
