It’s a Sunday.  One of those rare Sunday evenings that I actually don’t have anything I have to do.  On nights like this, I try to figure out ways to better my business and to better myself as a photographer.  Tonight I chose to learn a little something from one of my favorite role models, Jasmine Star.   

A month ago, I purchased Jasmine Star’s creativelive course as a way to learn how one of the top photographers in the world goes about capturing a wedding day.  If you don’t know Jasmine Star, you should.  She is amazingly talented, a women of God, and just so much fun!  When it comes to the secrets of her success, she is an open book, willing to help anyone who will listen.  I have learned so much through this 5-day course.  One thing that has stood out tonight is how to brand yourself in a way that completely reflects who you are.  I want people to hire me because they like me, exactly the way I am. I believe if this is true, my couples will trust me to do an amazing job capturing their wedding day.

So I started thinking, who am I? Well, basically I am a happy person, I don’t see that there is anything wrong with that! That's for all those "When Harry Met Sally" lovers out there.  I cheerlead my way through life, looking for the good in every situation and encouraging others around me to do the same.  I couldn’t go a day without chocolate; I just enjoy it too much!  My personality is slightly addictive, meaning if I get into something, I am all about it…100%.   Right now I am obsessed with s'mores ice cream.  I have probably gone through at least 74 cartons of it this summer, no lie.  Thank goodness for my husband I am obsessed with my daily workouts too.  I love me some reality TV!  Favorites now include Bachelor Pad and The Real Housewives of New York.  I know, I know, but hey, that’s just me.  I go into NYC every chance I get.  There is nothing like the energy that continually flows through the streets in this wonderful city.  Most importantly, I am a child of God.  I love my heavenly father with all of my heart and I am so thankful for the goodness and mercy he pours into my life daily. 

Now I just have to figure out a way to brand myself in a way that totally reflects who I am.  I guess I will keep watching.  Happy Sunday!
