Ever since I took the leap to turn my small business full time, I don't have as much disposable income compared to when I had a day job. Business expenses have to be prioritized and well, some days I have to work with what I have. We may not have everything we want but if we really stop to look, we have exactly what we need to keep moving forward.
Not only was it a fun night, but I am so impressed and proud of these ladies and their work! I seriously had trouble narrowing down which of their work to post so I hope you enjoy them. I am excited to see how they progress in the future if this is their starting point.

Living in the South, I've grown to appreciate everything about it. Okay, maybe not the 100 degree heat but I could go on about the charming small towns, Spanish moss, sweet tea, BBQ and hash, and being a die hard college football fan.
So when my friend Lorin of Lorin Marie Photography asked me if I could do a South Carolina print and make it a cut out, I was all for it. I love how it turned out and it's one of my favorite pieces to date! Being featured on A Lowcountry Wedding was just the icing on the cake.
Check out the rest of this romantic, dreamy shoot and all the talented vendors that made it possible.

I've battled with negative thoughts about myself my whole life. It's only recently I fought back with scripture, podcasts and affirmations. What a difference it makes! Each day I get stronger mentally and that little negative voice gets quieter and quieter. I pray if you deal with the same thing, you fight those thoughts. They're false. They're lying. They don't even know you, what you're capable of, and how worthy you are.
