ALERT ALERT! This is your last chance to sign up for the #annecaseyworkshop in August! Because time is running out, I’ll get down to the nitty gritty details.

If this isn't Pinterest-worthy, I don't know what is!
Speaking of Pinterest, it's been ALLLL the buzz lately as entrepreneurs are learning how they can use the pretty platform to actually drive results and profits into their business (for FREE!)

We recently went straight to the source and spent time at Pinterest HQ learning how we can help you see BIG success on a platform you're probably already on!
Next week I am hosting 3 LIVE trainings on how you can 5x your traffic in under an hour each week! Save your seat now, we are expecting a full (virtual) house and I'd hate for you to miss out!
Head to the link in my bio and let me know you're in below!

Hey guys! Popping in to show my face! This is me. The girl behind the camera and the one who prefers to be there! If there is one thing I can relate to, its that initial feeling of awkwardness in front of a camera!! (This is one of the reasons that I always recommend doing an engagement session before your wedding day, to get ya comfortable!)
If you’re new around here, you might be confused about the fact that my bio says I’m a farmers wife. But, yep. That’s my title. I married a farmer but our lives probably look a little different than what some might think of when they hear the term, “farmers wife.” I don’t wake up early to milk the cows, in fact, we live about a half an hour from the dairy farm and so I don’t actually get out there that often! My husband is the manager of the whole operation and he LOOOVES it.
We live on the border of Missouri and Illinois and are just a walk away from the Mississippi River! I can definitely tell you that I NEVER thought I’d end up in the Midwest but I love every second of it.

I have been a photographer for 6+ years. Weddings are my jam. I love all things bright, colorful and beautiful! Traveling makes my heart beat and Jesus is my rock.
A few more things you might not know about me?
I don’t particularly love pets, or hugs.
I’m trying my best to get a green thumb and I’m hoping to raise chickens in the near future. (Do they count as pets?)
Okay y’all, that’s me. Tell me a little about you! 👇🏼 Or just give me some tips on how to raise chickens. 😄

Sometimes we get signs that something just isn't quiiiite right. Would you agree? And when we pay attention to those signs and then adjust our course accordingly, we can break through some trying times and launch into the next phase of growth!
Where is your next left turn going to take you, friend!? Need to think about it?
Then let me know! .

If you listen to the podcast this week, I'd LOVE it if you would head over to the show notes on the Stand to Serve blog (link in our profile) and share it on social media! Be sure to tag me so I can personally thank you! Your shares help me get a gauge on who's listening, where you're listening, when you're listening, and of course, it helps to get these small businesses in front of a larger audience! I'm thankful to be going on this journey with you❤️

Happy Friday!! There are so many new faces here...I thought I’d do a little Friday intro. I’m Corry, Marine spouse, mom to three teens, world traveler, educator, and photographer. Here are 5 things you may not know about me: 1~ I believe in a world where we can all live peacefully and joyfully together where we respect each other’s differences and learn from those that are not like us. Where we don’t try to belittle, demean or judge others when we have not walked a mile in their shoes. 2~ I LOVE a rainy day....perfect for curling up on the couch with a romantic comedy playing on TV! 3~ I collect vintage cameras. They are reminders of all the memories captured over the years and through the generations. 4~I cry at military homecomings and retirement ceremonies. Having lived this life for 27 years.... it touches my heart when the Marine gets choked up thanking and loving on his/her family. The sacrifices a military family makes don’t go unnoticed in my heart!! But I can rock a camera and sob at the same time!! 😂 5~ Id rather drive an old beater and be able to travel than try to impress people with my personal possessions. Exploring the world is when I feel most alive...not owning fancy things. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE home decor, clothes, etc....but I love taking our family on vacation and to great places than purchasing fancy shoes or a purse. Now, comment below with one fun fact that I may not know about you... I LOVE getting to know my insta-friends!!!

Where in the heck is all the time going 🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯

When is the last time you were so lost in thought, so enchanted by a moment, that you forgot to check your phone? ⠀

Have you ever done something so wonderful that you forgot to pull out your phone to take pictures? ⠀

Tell me about it. And then do more of that ❤️⠀

Happy Friday! For today’s #fridayintroduction, I’m introducing Lettering Works’ photographer: Sarah Waldo of @violetandivyphotography! All of our pretty product photos, event photos, and headshots would not be possible without Sarah’s talent behind the camera. Fun facts: 1️⃣ Sarah and I met at Peoria’s Tuesdays Together meetup (part of the @risingtidesociety) 2️⃣ We started our businesses around the same time (early 2016) 3️⃣ We started working together by trading a logo design for product photography 4️⃣ Sarah focuses on lifestyle photography (mainly families and products/small businesses) BUT also does a little wedding photography as a second shooter with @kara_kamienski_photography 5️⃣ Sarah has two adorable kids (and always captures their essence perfectly) 6️⃣ Sarah is originally from Peoria. I cannot recommend her enough for all your business and personal photography needs! While Lettering Works is a sole-proprietorship, it would not be what it is today without Sarah’s talent and contributions!

#CommunityOverCompetition is everything, right?

Yup! We're all for it! Did you know we even have our own Facebook Community -- a safe space to connect, interact, learn from, and grow with niche experts who are there to help you launch, pivot, or scale your business! 💃

If you've been looking for a place to ask all your questions about design, marketing, social media, and just business overall, then this is the place to be! 😎

Earlier this week, one of our founding partners @ladyandcocreative shared all the things about "what the heck is branding and how it helps your business" and @childersandco, who's all about that some social media strategy, hopped on live yesterday and spoke about why community is so important to build a sustainable business! If you've like to catch those replays (and many more LIVES to come!), follow the link in bio and request to join, you won't regret it! 😉

You know what's pretty amazing in this digital world we live in?
True connection. Real, genuine connection. I'm not sure how I lucked out and have been able to meet and connect with some of the most incredibly inspiring and fearless women. There's something magical about the Black Hills, I hear it a lot, but I'm starting to realize the magic comes from the people who choose these hills.

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” - Helen Keller
Being a part of a community can inspire and motivate you to do the incredible, it can have the effect of inspiring you to go harder and achieve success.
Double tap if you are you part of a community that inspires you to think bigger, work harder and achieve your goals.

Happy FRIYAY North Jersey Tiders! In the spirit of #fridayintroductions, today we're going to introduce you to a super sweet and talented photographer of our #TuesdaysTogether family! Meet Nathalia Endara of @nathaliaephotography!!
"Hi! My name is Nathalia. I am a portrait, wedding and landscape photographer based in Northern NJ. For as long as I can remember I have always been an artist. Whether it was visual or performing, I have always had art as a part of my life. In pursuit of my artistic dreams I went to Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University, where I earned my BFA in Visual Arts with a concentration in Photography. .
My approach to photography is more photo journalistic. When a photo of mine tells a story in itself, that’s when I’m most content. One of my favorite things to do is find old photos of my families’ past generations and reminisce. I hope that one day, many years from now, someone is able to pick up a photo I took of a grandparent or other relative and smile because of the floods of memories that come back just by viewing the image. I’m always looking for new and beautiful things to photograph and would love to capture your memories through my photographs."
Be sure to follow along with @nathaliaephotography and leave her some love!! 💙 Happy Friday! #meetttnorthnj

Our bouquets this season have been UNREAL. Totally supportive of this greenery trend sticking around forever and ever ✨

I’m always a sucker for a in-home session, but it’s not often that you step into the ultimate dream kitchen/living room to make that magic happen🍋🌿
Brooke and Vinny’s vision for their engagement shoot aligned with so many things I love. A cozy, bright space (also throw in a lemon apron and muffins 🍋) - where I obsessed over their sweet new home they recently completely renovated. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And then finishing at @prherbfarm with the ultimate beautiful light through the greenhouses and fields of green! It was the perfect mix of two worlds 🌿🌸

Hi everyone 👋🏼 Happy Friday! I’m finally doing it, my first EVER #fridayintroductions 🤗👏🏼 Yay! Thanks for reading 💕

I’m Danielle! The girl behind the camera. Born and raised in Vermont I love all things VT and I am proud to call the green mountain state my home 🏡🌲🍁 I grew up in Underhill, went to Mount Mansfield HS, attended college @universityofvermont, studied abroad @uclanuni and finished my schooling @hallmarkinstituteofphotography !!!

I grew up thinking photography would always be a hobby for me. But when I realized I could turn my passion into a career I took the challenge and never looked back. I’m 25, and I am SO excited to be on this entrepreneurial journey doing what I love! ❤️ Until next time, xo
