a day in the life | heidi adams

A Day In The Life with Heidi Adams
I am not an over achieving mom. I promise. I just ran out of cereal so…

School time for the older two.

Little bit of park time with the 3 littles before we go to the grocery store.

Grocery time!

The baby’s newest trick.

Off to the office supply store to buy daddy some pocket protectors. Not kidding.

I rarely eat  breakfast or lunch. I usually just grab snacks between the chaos. I am a bit obsessed with these(…)

packaging

by Melissa Stottmann
If your business had a face what would it look like? Your brand and packaging gives your clients a look at who you are and a “face” for your business. Is your photography bold and bright? Subdued and peaceful? Fun and flirty? Get creative and use your packaging to reflect your work for your clients!
My packaging:
Prints and products need to arrive securely to my clients- this is the very first matter of importance, however, it is equally beneficial(…)

A Day In The Life with Caroline Jensen
I have to admit that our lives aren’t that interesting anymore. After moving for the military 17 times since 2002 we kind of like boring now. We spend most of the time on our farm where we homeschool, garden and play.
Here is a typical day for the Jensen house! The only thing missing is about three dozen images of me shooting pictures and camping out at the computer catching up at Clickin Moms.

A Day In The Life with Kat Stewart
So unless l am being super lazy, l start the day with a quick shower after which l kiss goodbye to any personal time/space until about 7.30pm.

My son is our alarm clock. Thankfully he is a champion sleeper and we are not usually up before 8am (please don’t hate me, if it helps, l seem to need about 9 hours sleep to function like a normal human being). We usually have some playtime(…)

A Day In The Life with Anne Wick
Today, the day I photographed this, is Saturday. On the weekends, we like to sleep in… as much as our cats and our daughter will let us. This morning, these two came meowing and knocking at our door around 9, which is a reasonable time.

On our way downstairs to get breakfast, we meet the second feline member of the family, just being his cute and fluffy self.

I cannot function before I’ve had my(…)

A Day In The Life with Celeste Jones
When I was asked to write about my own day in the life I thought…no one wants to see my day. I’m not that interesting. Okay, in my mind I am, but that’s in my mind ya know? My day in the life takes place on 12/21/12 and is a mixture of images captured with both my d700 and my iphone 4s.

Okay, so every morning this happens. I know I hit snooze about 3(…)

A Day In The Life with Leslie Densford
I stressed about inviting y’all into a “day in my life.”  My to do list was a mile long – declutter, clean up, organize clothes, ahem… take a shower – and then I realized I might be sharing a day with you, however it was not going to be from my life.  My life is a little cluttered.  My boys will on occasion dress themselves in outfits I might not choose.  And some(…)

A Day In The Life with Courtney Keim
Every morning I wake up before 5 to head out to Crossfit.  So often I want to roll over and go back to sleep but it’s literally the only part of the day that I get to be out and do something I love ALONE.  I have to be out of the house by 5:20 to make sure I make it to my 5:30 am class.  Any later, I won’t make it.

I get home(…)

a day in the life | erin wheeler

A Day In The Life with Erin Wheeler
My kiddos were off school two days for conferences so this was a typical “off of school” day for us. My girls are pretty slow moving in the morning.

We usually start the day grabbing a quick breakfast. I usually get a cup of tea while the girls are eating and playing around.  I also start the day with checking my email and responding to any inquiries.

Shortly after the girls got dressed we got(…)

a day in the life | kellie penn

A Day In The Life with Kellie Penn
The tardy bell rings for school at 7:45 so our day begins pretty early! None of us are morning people so it’s a challenge!  After a quick breakfast of Pop tarts (don’t judge!) Mason and Millie brushed their teeth (not sure why she’s making such a grumpy face in her picture…I wasn’t lying about not being morning people), grabbed their backpacks, and ran out the door for school.

In a rare turn of events, Madden(…)

a day in the life | lila armock

A Day In The Life with Lila Armock
My day starts with a cup of coffee (decaf or half-caff now that I’m expecting baby Poppy).  Usually I wake up on my own around 7am, but will need to start setting an alarm once school’s back in session – boo.

Shortly after, I go get the girls up.  My oldest is a fabulous sleeper, but sometimes my youngest is in bed with me by 7am (she’ll sneak in around 4am or so).  This(…)
