Energized x1000

Everyone has a thing that trips their trigger, and I'm lucky enough to do mine professionally.  Being a portrait photographer in Indianapolis is seriously the culmination of spending over half my life in studying and shooting photography.  I even had a boss who likened me and my photography stories to the "this one time at band camp..." girl from American Pie.  So needless to say I was getting my geek on this week at an awesome photography workshop hosted by Marathon Press, (side note) seriously it was awesome guys thank you so much for all your hard work!  I got some awesome ideas on how I can better serve my clients from some of the top photographers in the industry!  So stay tuned over the next couple weeks as I finalize everything, I'm going to be announcing a new baby plan, and a plan with a little something for everyone in the family!

Added bonus I got to shoot these cuties during my travels!

Bringing in the Big Guns

2013 has been awesome so far!  We've settled into a new house and my business keeps getting busier and busier!  Which means things that don't come naturally or aren't enjoyable in the least fall to the wayside.  Most of all the skill I have yet to master after 32 years, organization.  It's not for lack of instruction, my mom is a master organizer, my educators over the years have tried to whip me into shape, I even had a few roommates who tried...more than one fell to the dark side!  So here I am still functioning in the quick sweep everything off the desk into this bin, clients are coming over, realm. 


Office Before

This month I've started making a change!  I hired Lindsay Reid who's job is to help me stay organized, keep me on schedule, and help better my workflow processes.  I am in the process of redoing my office I've taken down the old ugly wall paper border, added a new coat of paint, changed the light fixture; no more worries about clients hitting their head on the dining room chandelier hanging low in the middle of the room, and a new cabinet!  In the spirit of new beginnings and bettering myself I have invited my mom down to do a deep organizational clean.  While willing and excited she also knows me pretty well so she said she will probably make me sign something stating I will keep up with the organization...I hate being held accountable!  I'm looking forward to this new chapter and I can't wait to post some after pics of my new office!

A Heartfelt Happy New Year

Heartfelt Photography has been in a whirlwind over the last few months.  Fall is notoriously busy with family photos and Christmas cards, thanks to our wonderful clients we had our busiest months to date!   In the midst of the busy season and the holidays my husband and I bought our first house!  It is absolutely perfect for us, and my studio is now twice the size of the old one.  We moved two days after the Indy blizzard of 2012 and for the most part we are unpacked and settling in! 



We are back at work and are planning out 2013 with new styled mini sessions, specials, and fun products.  I'm looking forward to this next year, and photographing all of you in my new space!
