Lucy Marie  When life gives you lemons, make a French 75 🥂 Just a photographer who loves to travel searching for a creative outlet! ✨ 🍋 San Francisco, Ca

Hey gorgeous! It’s been a quick minute since I’ve been here but I’ve been in need of a little break. I know quite a few of you can understand! So if you remember me, AMAZING! If not, totally fine! I’ve only posted like twice in a year. 😰 So thank you for sticking around! 😘

Not sure yet what my future holds. I’m starting a full time job in a few short weeks and figured I’d need a creative outlet! I hope you’ll still follow along as I still love following along with all of you.

So here’s a photo of me happy as a clam in Greece last year! Finally going through my vacation photos and excited to have a place to share! 😍 More to come! 💕

Hey gorgeous people! Long time no post...like really long time. Like months! But sometimes life gets the better of you, and you need a digital detox for very good reasons and for quite awhile.

Sometimes life throws things at you like anxiety, fatigue, lethargy, and a bunch of other really fun stuff. Sometimes it gets bad and you need to get some help. And it’s OK! I’m feeling so much better now and excited to come back to my Insta community.

And I’m sharing because when life gets you down, it’s ok to take a break, ask for help, and take your time. And if you’re struggling I am always here for you!

But now I have a ton of Europe photos to share with you and I’m so excited! So hi hello I missed you all and I’m excited to share with you all again! 💕💕

Taking a break from my posting to social media break because I felt like I had to say something. After hearing the news this morning of Anthony Bourdain taking his own life, so recently after my favorite Kate Spade, my heart is breaking.
.
Reported by @theskimm this morning: suicide is one of the top causes of death in the US. Please let that sink in. Why when so many people are obviously suffering can we still not talk about it? Why with such staggering numbers do people still feel so alone? Like there’s no other way out?
.
We NEED to remove the stigma around talking about mental illness. It’s there. It’s so obviously prevalent. People are dying from it every day. We have to address this illness because that’s what it is. Because what else is it when to take one’s own life goes against everything your body was designed to do: keep you alive.
.
I see a therapist once a week. Am I suicidal? No, but I’ve gone through some tough stuff and I realized I needed some help. That I didn’t have to handle it on my own. That someone more equipped could help guide me through.
.
My mom passed away and some in my immediate family suffer from bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Is that any “worse” than someone else’s issue? Am I suffering “enough” to seek help? These were thoughts I carried before seeking help. I thought my problems weren’t bad enough. I could, I should, handle it on my own.
.
I don’t care if the milk spilled and now you feel like you need help. There is no suffering more or less than the person next to you, it’s still suffering. And we ALL go through it. The more we talk openly about it, the more we’ll realize we’re really not alone at all.
.
Therapy doesn’t work for everyone, but there really isn’t many options otherwise. The more we talk about it and demand for research and help, the more we’ll be heard. We have to be heard. We now have no other choice. People are literally dying.
.
Please reach out, seek some help. If you have no one else my inbox is always open! Let’s change the narrative. Let’s stop feeling like we’re “burdening” people with our problems. Let’s talk openly over a cup of coffee ♥️.

Currently: finishing up all my projects before our annual camping trip this weekend! 50 of my close friends get together every year for a 3 night camping trip dubbed ‘Mem Day’ and it’s the best weekend every year. Though where were camping this year it will be raining and I’ll be dreaming of sunny days spent by the bay 😂☀️.

Do you have fun Memorial Day weekend plans? ⛵️

Is Tuesday Introductions a thing? Well I guess it is now! 😂 Hi friends! 👋🏼 I’m Lucy and I help female led brands stand out online! Need fantastic on-brand photos for your website, social media, or marketing/ad materials? I’ve got you! Need social media consulting and/or management help? I’ve also got you! I love helping my fellow lady bosses really take their businesses to the next level. It’s my favorite!
.
What else is my favorite? All flowers, cute doors, exclamation marks (!), red wine, sunshine, the beach, and of course, the color pink 💕.
.
Now introduce yourself! Who are you, what do you do, and/or what’s your favorite?? I’d love to know! 😍 Photo thanks to my darling friend @kyliecomptonphotography (edited by me!)

How beautiful and delicate are these skirts for wedding gowns? I’m just in love! It has been such a blast working with @lace_and_liberty lately and their work is truly stunning!
.
If you’re getting married have you ever thought of designing your own custom dress? I think it’s definitely the way I would go for sure!

Been busy busy behind a computer screen today. Lots of editing photos and also researching, preparing and writing up a social media strategy for a new client. Whew!
.
Green tea definitely needed today! With bag in, need it super strong 💪🏼. But since I’m on a social media kick, ask me in the comments what’s one burning question you have about Instagram and I’ll answer it in my stories! ☺️💕

👆🏼 Photo for me and my feed, 👉🏼 Swipe for photos from a branding session with @hollyknoll! We had such a blast running around San Francisco taking fabulous photos for her website and social media!
.
These are by far my favorite shoots. Empowering female entrepreneurs with photos to help their businesses stand out, it’s the best job in the world!
.
It also helps stretch my creativity as I cater my shooting and editing style to match your branding style! So fun right? Send me an email and let’s talk branding for your business!

I absolutely love seeing the little gifts that brides give their bridesmaids. These small tokens are such a wonderful, and important, way to say thank you. Thank you for spending the money and the time for all of the events that come with a wedding. Thank you for standing by my side through it all and on the big day.
.
Whatever your gift be sure your bridesmaids feel loved and appreciated by you!!

When the bride and groom totally kill it at the shoe game 😍.
.
Can you believe Lindsay had her own customized shoes made? And they were PERFECT for her! If you’re a bride I highly recommend going this route!

Let me tell you ‘bout this wedding.... 😍😍😍 #somanyhearteyes #mostbeautifulwedding
.
I also hold a serious soft spot for Engagement Rings and Wedding Bands that match. Anyone else with me? (But seriously all rings are beautiful let’s be real!!)

THESE TWO GET MARRIED TOMORROW!!! 😍😍😍 So so so happy to be here capturing their most special day! Santa Barbara doesn’t know what hit it! #kinderneils2018 #ilovemyjob
