Family Photos On The Farm | Placerville Family Photographer

Back again with a awesome session on a family farm. This family was so much fun to be around and I have to say that I am thankful to call them my friends now! Its been so great getting to know them over the last few months and I hope there are many more to come! I love it when families request the pets to be in the pictures because you never know what you are going to get. I think we did pretty good considering one dog was a little rowdy puppy!

You can’t help but love the beautiful light and lovely people. It really makes all the difference ya know? Do you own a farm that you are proud of? If you ever want me to make some magic for you then please let me know! It’s such an honor to be considered for this special moment that I can’t even explain how much I love my job!

Much Love,

Heather

A Sweet Couple and Their Dog | Family Photographer Folsom

So this marks one of those times I have just loved every single detail about a session. The dog behaved. The lighting was perfect! I couldn’t ask for  a nicer couple to talk with and it was the most fun I have had in a long time. J and D were the best to work for. They wanted engagement photos and they were very specific on their needs. I love that because it makes it so much easier on me.

Working with dogs can be a challenge but honestly its not that bad! They can be fun and quirky and jumpy and lovey all at the same time. My background in animals definitely gives me an advantage here!

Sometimes I am not sure how I get some expressions but this one really hit the nail on the head so to speak. One of my absolute favorites of all time.

Intention Yoga and Spa |Children Photographer El Dorado Hills

So recently I decided that it would be totally neat to feature some local businesses on my blog. How did they get their start? What do they like best about the business? Are they offering any specials right now? Well, let’s meet our first business! A whole lot of faith and a big heart are what Crystal needed in order to open her new business Intention Yoga and Spa. She is working hard to make it successful. Here is what we discussed.

IMG_0036

Me: How long have you been in business?

Crystal: 3 years

 

Me: What made you get into your own business?

Crystal: It was perfect timing when the opportunity was presented, and the location was right. I was looking to start and to grow my career as an esthetician, in a space that I created and was responsible for. I have always wanted a flexible schedule where I was in charge of making my own appointments and able to be creative with my work environment.

 

Me: What have you enjoyed most about having your own business?

Crystal: Flexibility of working hours, first and foremost. Being my own boss which allows me the ability to focus on my strengths in the skin care field. Having access to continuing education, (and skincare products) through Dermalogica and the International Dermal Institute. Growing my interests in the field and seeing how far I’ve come! My family and friends are proud of me, and so am I when I wake up and step back and look at what I’ve accomplished!

Me: Does your family get involved at all within the business?
Crystal: My son loves our kids yoga classes and the rest of my family love the skincare products and treatments.
Me: Where do you see your business in 5 years?
Crystal: Able to offer even more targeted services, classes and workshops to our clientele. Able to hire an assistant to help with marketing.
Me: What did you do before starting your own business?
Crystal: Retail, waitress, sales, office assistant.
IMG_9475
Me: Are you involved in the community? If yes, how so? If not, do you plan to be in the future?
Crystal: We donate to local schools and fundraisers.
Me: What is your favorite pastime outside of the business?
Crystal: Reading!!
IMG_9479
Me: What gets you fired up?
Crystal: Meeting new clients and them love their skin! Continued education classes in skincare! Learning new techniques and ingredients. Planning marketing events.
Me: What is the best advice you’ve ever received?
Crystal: Delegate, but I do not heed this advice and I struggle with it everyday!
Me: Where do you go/look for inspiration?
Crystal: Industry related classes, magazine, websites. Meeting new service providers, teachers and practitioners in the field. And talking with current and new clients and discussing skincare and yoga!
IMG_9482
Me: What is your most memorable moment?
Crystal: Deciding to jump feet first into owning a business! Meeting Jane Wurwand, the founder of Dermalogica and The International Dermal Institute. Passing state board exams! Receiving recognition from Dermalogica and The International Dermal Institute for my continued education and commitment to skincare.
Me: What is your favorite product to sell and why?
Crystal: Dermalogica skincare, because I truly believe in the company and the care and research they put into the products they create, and their ultimate goal of maintaining healthy skin.
Me: Anything else you want to add?
Crystal: In the last 3 months or so, I have completely switched gears on the front end of my business, changing from a hair salon/spa, into a yoga studio/spa. This is in no way what I could of imagined 3 years ago, but it is completely going in the original overall plan I had. It just goes to show that sometimes you find what you want by figuring out what you don’t want. And although I am essentially starting over, truly, I am just expanding and evolving myself and my business!

Right now- Crystal offers quite a few specials and opportunities to have a great experience at Intention Yoga and Spa. Check out her website for more information on classes and other offerings. If you look close enough you will find out how you can get a gift certificate for yours truly (Floyd Family Photography). If you have questions for Crystal please contact her. She is a wealth of knowledge.

 

 

And if you just can’t wait to get that gift certificate and you need to schedule me for a family session to start your year off? Please contact me today! I can’t wait to hear from you! Maybe we can take a yoga class together!

Much love,

Heather

Happy New Year! | Children Photographer El Dorado Hills

“Rivers know there is no hurry. We shall get there SOMEDAY.” Winnie the Pooh

So it’s a new year and it’s a time of quiet reflection and decision making. Time for all those new year resolutions to take place if you have them. Time for thinking about the future and not dwelling on the past. As I sit here and think about all the things that I have to be thankful for over the past year I am just overwhelmed. All the things I have learned over the year and all things I was able to be present for just because my new job has allowed me to be that way. It is all priceless. So in remembrance of the last year I just want to say thank you to all my new friends and clients. You are all so important to me. More than you know. I am so thankful to have met and worked with each and every one of you that I can’t say it enough. I can’t wait to see what the new year brings and I am so excited to get going its unreal. My goals for 2015 are much bigger than those from last year but, I want to also remember the wise words of Winnie the Pooh. I will get there someday. Thank you again for all those people that have helped me in this past year and guided me through my first year as a full time photographer. I can’t wait to start again!

2015-01-01_0003

 

If you are wishing to have a portrait session of your own this coming year don’t hesitate to contact me as soon as you can. You won’t be sorry you did!

Much love,

Heather

So I have this fear… | Family Photographer Placerville

So I have this fear… Next year I am starting a 52 project. One picture a week for an entire year. Doesn’t sound that hard right? I joined a group of very talented people and I have to say I am already intimidated. We all belong to this group called the NAPCP. If you only knew the talent in this group you would be intimidated too. Never feeling worthy to be in this group yet feeling honored that I am, in my heart I know there is nothing to fear. There is nothing to gain from this fear. There is nothing to lose from this fear. It’s just there. What I do know is that it’s not a competition. It’s not about doing this project and gaining experience. It’s not about being inspired by other’s work (although that will surely happen anyway!) and it’s not even about whether I finish or not. It’s not about whether my images are quality or edited properly. It’s not about me. What it is about is my family. My kids. My pets. My life. My life at this moment. My life next week and my life next month. It’s ok if I don’t complete it. It’s ok if I can’t finish one week or one month. It’s ok. As long as I have tried and succeeded in the first week I have succeeded for me. The fears shall be washed away with warm hugs and kisses, with love and affection. As long as I have that, I have everything. I don’t need anything else. If I were to die tomorrow or next month I know that I have documented something for sharing. No one will care about all of the above. The only hurdle I will have now is reminding myself of this daily. I don’t think I will have a problem with that.
