It's allllll loooove today!

Today is my birthday and I am thankful. I had been feeling so overwhelmed these past weeks and then yesterday, I had about 10 min before a client call and decided to crack open my bible (for the first time in a while😉). Literally, I opened it, looked down and the only thing I saw was already underlined and read:
"Go deeper and let down your nets again"
I know this might not sound that crazy, but in that moment it was the only thing I needed. I've been so stuck in fear lately -fear of the future and of my own abilities that I've been playing small and feeling sorry for myself. And in that moment seeing those words, I felt so loved and it made me remember that I want to go deeper and be brave again.
So today is my birthday! It's a new day and a new year and a brand-new opportunity to choose courage and I'm doing it!

It's been pure magic over here the last few days! We've been back to back creating with @brainsoverblonde working on her brilliant new branding!!
Here's a behind the scenes actions from today's video shoot!! We are getting some amazing footage and cannot wait to bring this message + brand to life!!!
If you want to bring your brand to life with a website, photography, and beautiful video hit us up and let's make magic together.

In case you missed it, last night we hosted our first ever Supper Club for @creativestudiosla
We had an incredible seasonal vegan meal artfully prepared by the amazing @lauralindalou and her awesome sous chef @adamfosterballard (if you zoom in you can read the menu!). Everyone was blown away by how delicious the food tasted! Such a treat!
It was a beautiful evening of connecting + conversation as well! We got to meet some of our very first supports of CSLA and have meaningful conversations about our passion for our work and how we harness our strengths to propel us forward.
Thank you to everyone who came last night! You are 💯what made it so special. Thank you for showing up and sharing yourself with all of us. So so excited to do it again next month and every month.

Taking my own advice and getting out for a quick walk!

I realized a while ago that when my mind is running a marathon in a zillion different (equally important) directions, taking a quick walk is both an act of determination and of self-care.

Because I am committed to my outcome, I can afford to be kind to myself in the process and take time to enjoy already having enough.

Double tap if you're all about that #gratitudelife 💪🚶🏻‍♀️🌸

Hey everyone, I’m Kim (@kbandreas)! I’m an LA based prop and food stylist, and I’m so excited to be teaming up with CSLA and The Brand Gals to bring you the Photo Styling Workshop! To give you a little taste of what’s to come I wanted to share a few of my favorite tips for photo styling. First up; The Rule of Odds. Did you know that an image is visually more appealing when it contains an odd number of objects? It’s true! Compositionally, odd numbers (specifically the number 3) suggest balance and harmony. The next time you’re setting up a shot, make sure you apply this rule; either by shooting 3s or groups of 3s. Give it a try and let us know how it turns out!⠀
If you liked these tips, make sure you sign up for the Photo Styling Workshop hosted by myself and @creativestudiosla. Hope to see you there!⠀

Pretty much sums it up.

Not usually one to drop the F-💣 on social but sometimes, it's just right. There is no doubt that being an entrepreneur is a risky and rewarding path. Sometimes the only thing that keeps me going is the #onmyownterms part.

Double tap if you are an #OnYourOwnTerms kinda gal (or guy😉) #mondaymotivation #entrepreneurquotes #quotesofinstagram #mondayquotes
