Last week, we hosted the second gather | Jackson, an event for creative small business owners in Jackson, Mississippi! Hallie Brand, Emily Moore, & I hosted this event together, & it was such a joy getting to lead & serve alongside two of my dearest friends. We had so much fun putting together gather | Jackson 2020!
I had SO much fun getting to be an educator at the Amy-Cole Workshop a couple of weeks ago!! Amy is one of my dear friends who I met at our friend Callie’s workshop in Charleston, so it was such an honor to get to help her at her first workshop in her home in Atlanta! From the amazing education to the incredible “swag bags” to the late night Jeni’s Ice Cream run in our pjs, these few days were full of so many fun moments. But my favorite part was…
I am SO excited to share more about the first ever Summer Refresh event that my friend Hallie Brand of Dot & I hosted for creatives & entrepreneurs at LifeHouse in Jackson, Mississippi last week! A couple of years ago, Hallie & I started talking about the need for a workshop/retreat for small business owners in our area, & after months of planning, our dream finally came to life! It was such a blessing to see the Lord’s faithfulness in every detail of this event coming together. Hallie & I both felt that having 10 attendees would create the perfect sized group, & we had exactly 10 ladies register!! They are SUCH a talented group, & we had the best day getting to encourage & share with them.
I am SO excited to announce a brand new event hosted by myself & my dear friend, Hallie Brand of Dot! For the past few months (and if we’re being completely honest, the past couple of years), Hallie & I have been brainstorming & talking about hosting some sort of workshop/event for small business owners & creative entrepreneurs in the Jackson, Mississippi area. We are so incredibly excited to say that our dream is finally becoming reality as we host the first ever Summer Refresh on July 11 at Lifehouse in Jackson, Mississippi!
I am SO excited to finally introduce my spring intern, Sara Beth! Sara Beth will be helping me in the studio & at several wedding days over the next few months. We kicked off her first day last week with a morning of training & a celebratory lunch! I can’t wait to have her work alongside me this spring! Sara Beth is SO sweet & is definitely a promising photographer. I had Sara Beth write a few words to introduce herself to all of you!
We had such a great Tuesdays Together meeting this month! Thanks so much to the incredible Kristin Panetta, owner of Elle James Bridal, for not only hosting our meeting but for also speaking to us about building client relationships! It was so inspiring to hear how well she serves her clients & how she creates such an amazing experience for each bride that walks through her door. We had several new faces at this month’s meet up, & it was great getting to make new friends & catch up with our members.
Friends, I had the most AMAZING time at the Callie Lindsey Workshop in Franklin, Tennessee last week! Some of you may remember that I attended The Charleston Workshop led by Callie Lindsey back in the fall of 2017, & it was truly a game changer for my business!! Callie has been SUCH a huge encouragement to me from the moment I met her, & I was beyond honored when she asked me to come back as a workshop alum & help with her first workshop in Franklin!
What an amazing year it’s been for Katelyn Anne Photography!! I have had the honor of capturing the most beautiful wedding days for truly the sweetest couples, & I’m more thankful than ever that I got to get call this my job! This was quite a monumental year in the life of this business of mine! At the beginning of the year, I celebrated booking my 100th wedding & was so overwhelmed by all of the love & encouragement I received from all of my friends, family, & clients. Over the year, I got to capture 24 wedding days, & at each & every one, I was reminded just how truly blessed I am to get to do the job I love every single day.
