Challenging Fear

Currently I am redoing my work space. As I was shopping, I discovered a book and the title captured me.

You see, I have been letting fear get in the way. It had started creeping into my business about a year ago. Lately it’s been hindering me so much that I decided to do something about it. Then I come across this book in the clearance section. Do One Thing Every Day That Scares You. How perfect is that?


So for the next year I will be challenging myself to be fearless. I invite you to do so as well. I have created a Facebook group called Fearless Creatives. I invite you to join if you are a creative, and want to be a part of a community of like minded creative and entrepreneurs.

Let’s challenge fear while supporting each other! Thanks for reading!

Absolutely Incredible Kid Day

So, it’s Absolutely Incredible Kid Day, and I want to celebrate by writing a letter to my son.

Dear Little One,

You spent two hours crying after you were born, but it meant you were here. I could finally hold you in my arms. The nurse brought you over, and said, “Here’s your son.” All I could say was, “He’s beautiful!”

I didn’t sleep at all for the first three days. Not because I couldn’t, but I didn’t want to miss anything in case you needed me. I would get up in the middle of the night, just to make sure you were breathing. Three years later, I still do.

The first time you went to day care, I came home and paced around for two hours. I didn’t know what to do without you. You had been home with me for close to three years, and it felt odd not to hear you asking me to play blocks or super heroes.

I love that you think my name is Kristen Photography. Working from home has been difficult at times, but I want you to know that you can make your dreams happen. Never let anyone tell you it’s not possible. This world is filled with impossible things.

I am blown away by your intelligence. I see you learning everyday, and I love it when you tell me something new. From knowing your ABC’s, shapes, and colors to kicking and throwing a ball. You love learning new things. May you never lose that love.

You are absolutely an incredible kid. I am so proud of you. There is not enough time in the world to describe how much you’re loved. May every day be an adventure. May every moment be filled with wonder. May every fear be trusted to God. May every obstacle be overcome.

I love you, Little One.


The Day of 50 Dresses

I am so excited to be teaming up with The Steel Magnolia Bridal Shop once again! On Tuesday, March 21st, we will be photographing all of her dresses! It’s going to be an amazing project, and I can’t wait to get my creative juices flowing after winter!

I am planning to go LIVE on Facebook throughout the day. Stay updated by following my Facebook page at!

We will have about six models, 50 dresses, and I’ll be exhausted after. Haha! It will be so worth it, though! Here are a few photos from the last shoot we did together. Megan will be modeling for us again!

Thanks for reading! Stay tuned as we prepare for this fun project! -Kristen D.
