    Why Sleep is Important

    Why Sleep is Important

    A little while ago I did an episode about sleep and why it’s important, which is one of the most popular episodes I’ve ever done. Clearly this is a topic you all want to know more about so I’m going to dive back in and share the story behind why I value sleep as much as I do. It all happened a few years back in the height of my pregnancy photography when I was completely overbooked. I’m going to be completely honest and share the rough times, the mistakes I made and the lessons I finally learned. I hope you can take away something from this so you don't need to push yourself to breaking point like I did.

    Gender Role Reversal with Hubby Matt Barratt

    Gender Role Reversal with Hubby Matt Barratt

    Most families adhere to the societal pressures that have the man work and provide for his family while the woman stays home and takes care of the kids. This works really well for a lot of people but it’s not the best or only way to live your lives. Many people are too scared to step outside these roles and stay stuck unable to reach their full potential.
    When I started my business my husband and I agreed to reverse these roles and have him stay home to look after the kids so I could fully pursue it. We faced questions from strangers, family, friends, and even ourselves but it worked incredibly well for us. Today he joins me on the podcast to share out story and I ask him some of your biggest questions about our lives, how he felt about this shift, and the best and worst things that have come out of it.

    The difference between marketing, advertising and sales

    The difference between marketing, advertising and sales

    I’ve noticed that sales, advertising and marketing are often used interchangeably but, while they are all vital parts of running a business, they are not the same thing. I think it’s super important to understand the difference between them so you can know exactly what you're doing in your business.
    Sales is how much you’re selling. Advertising is actively promoting your services/products. Marketing is the larger picture strategy which ecompases both sales and advertising but is not limited to just those.
    Today I want to explore these three concepts, their differences, and the way they link together.

    Creating with your p*ssy

    Creating with your p*ssy

    What does it mean to be a woman?

    The creative and feminine energy that we have as women is revealed in almost everything we do, from raising children to caring for our homes and others around us. In essence, we are creators who birth new inspiring ideas each day, yet unnoticed trauma can block our creative flow.

    In today’s episode we’ve got quite an interesting topic, one I’m passionate about. I want to talk to you about your pussy, and making money with your pussy. I speak about the conundrum many women face regarding their association with birth and creativity in modern society. I also share my thoughts on how certain trauma can disrupt our divine creativity.

    What if you could find flow in your work? What if you could develop a better relationship with the way you create? As I recognise the trauma and the experiences I’ve been through, I gently heal and am more present with the connection I have with myself and the way I view my creativity.

    Conflicting parts

    Conflicting parts

    Do you believe that money is hard to make?

    A lot of us hang on to this belief and it leaves us with tight fists and unwilling attitudes towards spending money. If we believe that money is hard to make, then it is also hard to spend and hard to make back again. And in this cycle, we stay in lack.

    In this episode, I talk about the journey I’ve taken in changing my beliefs about money and material possessions. I share the thought process I went through when I recently bought a new car and how my beliefs about money helped me choose the car I wanted, not just the one we could afford.

    What if you didn't associate money with being hard to make? You could change the cycle to believe that it is easy to make money, easy to make it back and therefore easy to spend.

    The more I walk in this mindset, the more my life provides evidence for it. The more I live a life of abundance, the more abundance comes to me and my family in return.

    How to get off of the hampster wheel

    How to get off of the hampster wheel

    Today I’m coming at you with something huge!

    As a birth photographer, I live my life always on call. For the most part, I’ve been happy with it but lately I’ve begun to question what things would be like if I could choose my life more freely. What would my life look like if I wanted to do something else?

    It was a hard thing for me to consider as I’ve always seen birth photography as my livelihood. I had a hundred reasons why I couldn’t possibly change things but it all boiled down to birth photography, because that’s what I’m energetically aligned to.

    It can be difficult to break out of this original cycle which is why so many people are stuck in 9 to 5 jobs and why so many are scared to follow their dreams.

    But I have broken out. I eventually realised that if I took my energy away from birth photography, I could put it wherever I wanted. I could become energetically aligned with coaching. Birth photography was where I made my money but if I claimed coaching with my energy, it could become my new livelihood and I would be fine.

    So now, I’ve stopped taking birth bookings and I’m focusing my energy where it belongs. This is a new era for me and I’m so incredibly excited to see what comes next.
