Evoke Mentorship | February 2015

E V O K E  |  T H E   M E N T O R S H I P THE LOW-DOWN I was met with a lot of closed doors when I entered into the world of photography. It was a frustrating and deflating process and on more than one occasion, I considered calling it quits. I feared that I didn’t have what it was going to take to make it in the industry.

CM Breakout Session with Holli True | The Beauty of Simplicity | NOW AVAILABLE

The Beauty of Simplicity | Clickin Moms Breakout Session

I’ve pinched myself at least a dozen times today. You know, just to make sure I’m not dreaming. Because that’s exactly what it feels like right now, like I’m dreaming. When I submitted a proposal to Clickin Moms for a potential Breakout Session, I held my breath as I pressed the send button. I refused to get my hopes up, knowing it was a long shot. After all, they only release a limited number of Breakouts each year. In fact, I didn’t evenClick for more »

For those of you living in the Northwest, you’re familiar with the massive storms that have decided to invade this week. Mother Nature is as relentless as ever with her crazy winds and buckets of rain. And while, as a photographer, I should be hating what I’m seeing outside my window, the writer in me is loving every single second of the storm. What can I say? I’m an Oregon Girl and I LOVE the rain! ;) Stay safe, friends! It’s going to be wildClick for more »

My Ode to Angus & Julia Stone

Five years. I waited five years to finally see two of my favorite musicians perform live, Angus & Julia Stone. And let me tell you, it was so worth the wait! It was back in 2009 that I first heard this brother and sister duo- I was in search of a wedding song to use for a slideshow I was working on and I came across a song sung by them entitled, “The Wedding Song”. No joke. From the moment I heard the harmonica, I was sucked in- and then Julia’sClick for more »
