    22: How to Bounce Back From a Bad Photoshoot (Lessons I’ve Learned When Things Went Wrong)

    Unfortunately, not every single shoot we do is going to be perfect, but wouldn't it be nice if it were?! *sigh, a girl can dream*
    Sometimes we can't help it when things go wrong and other times we CAN. We've just gotta be sure that we're approaching our shoots the right way and learning from the mistakes we've made. 
    Today I'm sharing a few tips and tricks to help you bounce back from a bad photoshoot (that you can implement immediately). I'm also sharing a personal experience I had that still haunts me to this day, along with the lessons I learned from it.

    21: Take These Steps to Make Your Photography Clients Feel Confident

    21: Take These Steps to Make Your Photography Clients Feel Confident

    As photographers, it's heartbreaking when our clients show up to our shoots feeling self concious and worried about how they look on camera. It can throw the entire vibe of the shoot off and make them look and feel uncomfortable during the process, which isn't what ANYONE wants. I know we all wish our clients could see themselves the way we do—beautiful, radiant, unique—but sometimes getting our them to that point is a lot harder than we'd hope.  
    If you've ever struggled with making your clients feel confident and comfortable in their own skin during your shoots, this is the episode for you!

    After creating Reels for two years and going “viral” several times, I’m sharing what really matters when it comes to creating content to help you grow your photography business (and what NOT to do as well!).

    17: Why I Took 11,645 Photos at My Last Shoot & Why YOU Should Too!

    17: Why I Took 11,645 Photos at My Last Shoot & Why YOU Should Too!

    In today’s episode, I’m diving into the myth behind overshooting, what it really means for your photography and why it should be erased from the photography dictionary entirely.
    As a photographer dedicated to telling the most beautiful stories possible, it’s essential that you know this.
    Overshooting is ... a ... MYTH!
    Who the HECK got the idea that there should be a limit to how many photos you can take during a shoot? WHO decided that the people who take 200 photos are more talented than the people who take 2,000?
    I think I know, and in today’s podcast episode I’m sharing the REAL reason photographer’s worry about “overshooting” (and it has nothing to do with the amount of photos you take).
