Melissa Jill and the Giant Sandwich – A Blogging Metaphor

I had lunch this week with amazing local wedding photographer Melissa Jill. She’s the go-to girl for weddings if you want it done right. So we ordered our lunch at Urban Picnic here in Downtown Mesa and I think her Tuna Salad was a bit more than she was expecting. Feed a small village anyone? During our lunch, we chatted about photography, business and life. She encouraged/inspired me to be more diligent in my blogging efforts and gave me some great information about how she makes times for her own blog (which is great, btw). Just thinking about working on my blog and the whole social media thing in general makes me feel like I’m trying to take a bite out of that towering tuna sandwich. Overwhelming, how can I find the time, who cares anyway? But…I am determined. So, here’s to the teeniest, tiniest bite of that REALLY big sandwich. A little old blog post, starring Melissa.

Note for Photographers: Melissa also just launched a new venture call Align Album Design for wedding photographers. I love this idea–there are very few good options for wedding album design out there and knowing Melissa, the customer service is fantastic. This is a girl that dots her i’s and crosses her t’s. Thanks for lunch Melissa, next time it’s on me!

Me and My Sister Designs – AZ Commercial Photographer

These two ladies are so fun, funny and talented. They are Barbara and Mary from Me and My Sister Designs and it’s always a party when we have a shoot for them. This time they are debuting their Good Morning line of fabrics that they design for Moda Fabrics (those of you quilter out there know who I’m talking about!). Anyway, I can’t show you the newest photos but I can show you my fave from our last shoot—the new stuff will be appearing in the Better Homes and Gardens Quilting Mag very soon!

Hi Allison,

I pray your new year is off to a great start!!!

I saw your presentation in Nashville in 2015. I was moved and inspired by your personal and professional journey and I fell in love with your work and brand.

The reason I am reaching out to you is I on the verge of stepping out on faith and going full time. I have build my name as a wedding photographer in Huntsville, AL but I have recently partnered with my assistant and we now share a studio space. I would like to expand my brand into portraits and I decided to do a search to see if you do workshops or couching and I came across this workshop. I would love to attend if you are planning to have one in the near future. Please feel free to add me to your mailing list and please let me know if any opportunity comes up.

Thanks and I am looking forward to hearing from you.
