I’m going to go out on a limb here and say it. I think a lot of creatives are introverts. The quiet, introspective time that is required to be successful in a creative field like graphic design and photography is really appealing to people who crave being alone as a way to hold onto sanity.

We’ve all been there–the dreaded wedding hangover. You know the one: achy feet, tight shoulders, throbbing wrists and a body that feels like it’s been hit by a train. If you’ve ever felt this way the day after a wedding, then this blog post is for you. As a registered yoga teacher and a wedding photographer, I decided it was time to combine both of my passions for the benefit of fellow photographers!
We used to feel that “getting paid to be creative” was a pipe dream. Honest truth? It is. We aren’t getting paid because Abagail is a great designer or because Emylee is handy with a camera. Those skills don’t make money. We are getting paid to do what we love, because we created a business that is structured in a way that pays us (and pays us well). We treat our passion like a business. We know that if you start to do the same, you’ll be rewarded for it.

You know, the ones that give you a pit in your stomach and have you in a panic because you simply don’t know how to answer them.
