Ordinary, Happily Ever After

I have a secret to tell you.  And you might just hate me for it. I hate the rule of thirds. Like, I really hate it. Which is weird, right?  It’s like, the very first compositional rule that any new photographer learns.  “The rule of thirds is applied by aligning a subject with the guide lines and […]

Screw the Rule of Thirds

Today one of my mentors asked me a profound question that, at first blush, wouldn’t seem like that big of a deal. She asked, “What have you decided to be done with?” When I first heard it, I was a little confused.  Done with?  What have I decided to be done with?  I vaguely thought […]

Done: A Non-Conformist’s Manifesto

I, unfortunately, find myself in the position of needing to become a working mom.  A few weeks ago I told you how I was going to “focus on my career“.  I’m sure those of you who have been with me over the years may think that I’m possessed. I mean, who goes from a full-time, […]

Time to Get Busy

I’ve never hidden the fact that I am a capitalist, through and through.  I love the idea of creating something from scratch and turning it into something that can help make a difference in someone’s life, and at the same time improve the quality of life for my family.  It’s like I am spinning my […]

But a Drop in the Ocean

Ever since I started my entrepreneurship class this semester, the things that have been weighing on my mind have been addressed in my reading and preparation for the week.  Last week, it was relationships and life/work balance.  This week it’s about money.  Ever since my husband moved out a few weeks ago, my mind has […]

A few years ago I was talking to a young mother who was pregnant with baby number three.  I think I was pregnant with baby number six, and we got to talking about the difficulties of motherhood.  A few months later she told me that something I had said to her made a lasting impression […]

People wonder why I would post about my husband and my separation on such a public forum.  Well, it’s pretty simple.  I’m not a private person.  I never have been.  We’ve always had the little bumps and bruises through our sixteen years together, but when we first started having major troubles, I searched high and […]

It’s fairly strange writing an entrepreneurial blog post the day after I drop a huge bombshell on the world.  But life goes on and this homework assignment is due tomorrow. Woody Allen said, “90% of life is just showing up.”  It makes it sound so easy doesn’t it?  Just be where you need to be, […]

Thomas Paine said, “the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph”. It reminds me of something Elder Benson said: Some of the greatest battles we will face will be fought within the silent chambers of our own souls. Do you ever get tired?  I have to be honest.  I’m tired.  There are times, even […]

RAW or JPEG? If you are a beginner photographer or working with your phone, you likely won’t know what I’m talking about when I talk about RAW files. There is also a huge debate among photographers as to whether it’s better to shoot in raw or shoot jpeg. I’m not going to get into all […]
