Welcome to my little space on the internet where I share my photographs & client experiences with you! 

Here you will find highlights of weddings, elopements, engagements, and families. This is a great way to get a feel for my style of posing, lighting, locations, and some inspiration for your own time in front of my camera. I also have a little section of helpful tips & advice about sessions, weddings, and travels! 

Take a look around & get inspired...

Small Business Subscriptions + Travel Credit Card Affiliate Links

Tips & Advice • February 4, 2023 

Who doesn’t love saving some money?! And especially on all of the subscriptions needed to run a business. Those add up without you even realizing it. But, they are 100% worth it when they’re necessary for running a successful business with an amazing client experience.

I’ve listed some of my favorite subscriptions below that will help you get your business running smoothly and you + I both will get some savings!! Note: use must sign up with my links listed in order for us to both get the incentives.

Small Business Subscriptions

Client Softwares

Dubsado – client management software. First and foremost, this is how I keep track of all my clients and projects, they are individually organized with all of their details and make online contracts, invoices, and questionnaires SO easy!

20% off first month or year | $35 credit for me

Next, Pixieset – gallery + website host. This is how I deliver all of my client galleries with easy downloading, sharing, and print options. Additionally, you can connect to your favorite print lab for direct print orders. Also, they’ve recently added website and CRM (but I only use the gallery feature).

Plus, we both get additional storage when sign up with my link. Win, win!


Marketing and Website Platforms

Showit – website host. I just switched to showit after using wix for years. I already love it so much better!

One month free for both of us using the link below.


Flodesk – email marketing. Although I haven’t personally used this, I’ve paying for it for a while because I have hopes to set up email marketing at some point. After hearing so many great things about them, and loving the looks of what I saw, I signed up and hope to tackle that project sometime soon!

Editing, Albums, and Storage

Backblaze – cloud backup for your computer and external hard drives. I can’t believe how great this is. It is always running in the background backing up files and storing in case they ever need to be recovered. Incredible prices and peace of mind knowing your photos are always backed up somewhere safe!

Free month for both of us!

Another lifesaver is Imagen AI – AI editing that saves SOOO much time and keeps you in control of your style and work. Basically, with a low monthly subscription, you only pay for what you edit after that. A fraction of the time & price of outsourcing with an editor.

Additionally, with my link you get 1500 free edits + some for me too!

Finally, KISS – albums. My favorite album ordering company. Amazing quality and customer service.

$50 each after spending $100

Travel Credit Cards from Chase

Chase Freedom Unlimited – This was the first credit card I ever opened to build credit. Accordingly, I’ve had this card for 8+ years and have loved it! You earn cash back with every purchase and no-annual fee.

Finally is the Chase Sapphire Reserve – has a high annual fee that *almost* scared me away, BUT with all of the incredible travel perks, I think it will be worth it. Especially with all of the trips I have in store this year! I can’t wait to see how it goes.

I hope you found this helpful, feel free to DM me if you have any questions about these things that I love. I hope you enjoy them too! Happy saving!! 🙂
