So the rain stayed away for both sessions this weekend so I was completely okay with a rainy Sunday! Plus this rain might just revive our grass, but that’s wishful thinking...I think our grass, well lack there of, is too far gone😂🙈 anyone else!?😂
I will never get sick of this view. I swear, I live in the prettiest city there is! Seattle always has some of the best backdrops for photo sessions. My favorite time is in the evening when the sun has set and the city lights really light up ✨🏙
This week, teachers in the Atlanta area return to work. If you want to know how I’m feeling, check the smile on my face in this picture 🤣. Just to know that 2 months ago, I was able to walk away from the career I’ve held for the past 12 years making more in my business and being able to serve and assist others in accomplishing their goals and making their dreams come true, and I’m able to do it all from my laptop. •
Two years ago, when I started this journey, I started at square 1. I had no following, no brand, just a hope, a Dream, a vision, and a goal. I used to say to myself, “Who will read my book? Who will listen to me? I’m just a classroom teacher?” •
Two years later and I’ve worked with hundreds of women, over 100 writers and helped them become authors, and I’m excited for this next transition where I’ll be teaching published authors, speakers and coaches how to share their story to build their brand, and create a solid BUSINESS. •
Allow my testimony to motivate and encourage you to just START and if you need the help, don’t be afraid to invest so you can get the help you need. Whether it’s a class, a program, or a coach, you don’t have to do it alone.
God, continue to use me to change lives and glorify your kingdom. 📸 @_agphotos
Hello World 🌎 👋🏼,
I have been hiatus for a minute now.
What have I been doing?🕵🏻♀️ Well, you see I have been savoring every ounce of love this little guy has got to give. 😍 As well as changing hundreds of dirty diapers 😅.
I proudly present to you Reggie IV
(daddy is Reggie III).
Other than spending time with my little guy, I have been working on weddings, engagement sessions, among other things.
This little guy has given my work a new meaning, I am challenging myself in new ways!
Okay, yall that is the update.
Back to editing I go. 💃🏻❤️ #ANewFoundLove

Throwback to when I got to help throw an awesome baby shower for my sis-in-law 🙌🏻 Our niece is here now and needless to say, the whole fam is kind of obsessed with her. 🤗 I love getting to put tiny pretty touches on special events like these - it’s so fun! ✨
Well, my vacation is officially over and I have to go back to work tomorrow. 2020 is too far away but I can’t wait to be with the same family members again when my nephews graduate and we celebrate on another cruise!! In the meantime, I’m super stoked to be creating something amazing and fun for y’all!

I’m wishing each and every one of you a bit of this kind of serenity this week! It’s been a long weekend of showings and prep for the coming weeks around here, but life is what you put into it, right? Have a great Sunday! 💕
This is a photograph of me at the beach a few days ago.
If I'm gonna be honest I have to say that I really dislike the way my back is all chunky. And the way my arms squish? Ew.
But that is the way my body really looks right now. And I could live in denial about the way things really are. I could photoshop and crop the heck out of all of my photos. I could just escape reality as much as possible and just not think about the way I look.
OR, I could just accept the way that my body is. I can get to know the reality of what my body looks like. Learn to love reality instead of getting stuck on an ideal that probably isn't even possible for me to physically achieve.
I certainly don't just mean this as an excuse to not exercise and be healthy. By all means, getting in shape is one of my goals. But I have a real passion for truth. Being happy with where you are in life, loving yourself, even loving others, all have a foundation in being able to see things the way they really are.
So I’ll share my unflattering back with y’all and we can both accept and learn to love the reality of me together. 💜

“Joy blooms where minds and hearts are open.” – Jonathan Lockwood Huie
Some people seem naturally joyful, while others cannot even grasp what joy is. The ability to feel joy is a function of our hearts when we are connected to our Creator. When both our hearts and minds are open to the love, purpose and beauty of life given by God, we unleash the gift of joy!
ARE YOU READY TO RECEIVE RENEWED JOY IN YOUR LIFE? ARE YOU OPEN TO GOD’S DEVINE (JOY-FILLED) PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE?
Heading into a new week like 👊🏼 It’s storming like crazy this week, and I’m not really about it. I was scared of storms as a kid and I’m not fond of them as an adult. On the bright side, it forces me to stay indoors and get lots of work done! // 📷 @patrobinsonphoto

This week, I’ve been talking about the importance of having a bigger vision and defining your own version of success, but I also wanted to point out that ONLY having that bigger vision isn’t enough.⠀
Because big change actually happens through small, consistent efforts in your day-to-day.⠀
So if you’re looking to spend less time working → start by creating set office hours⠀
If you’d like to attend a retreat or enroll in a mastermind group → start setting aside a bit of each month’s income⠀
If you’d like to build a community around your business → start by reaching out to one person each day⠀
Start where you are now with what you have available to you, because the sooner you get started, the sooner you’ll see results.⠀
What’s one way you’ll commit to working toward your bigger vision this week?
This is something I repeat to myself over and over again. In the car, at home, in the mirror. Tomorrow I am jumping into the unknown fearlessly and sharing with you the podcast I have been working so hard on. I am so freaking proud of it! 🔥
This picture along with four others will be included as free prints in the email going out tomorrow morning! Make sure your on the list to snag yours. 💃🏼 The countdown begins! Tomorrow at 6:30 am, I want to see what you think. Take a screen shot of the episode you’re listening to and tag me in it using the hashtag #ChaseTribe 🎉
If you love it, would you do me a favor and leave a review to let others know they should include this in their life?🤗
Heyyy!!! I'm still here, sorry for the lack of posting lately. I have been SOOO busy, it's insane. Anyhoot, here's one of my crazy fur children. She is always watching me no matter where I am in the house, she knows what's going on. Daisy is smart about a couple of things, and not smart about a whole lot of things 😂. I love this crazy, snorting, crooked nosed mutt. I'm glad she's always keeping tabs on me. Anyone else have a quirky pet? They sure make life interesting don't they?! #daisythedog#labpointermix#weirddog
When it’s your special day and your simply can’t contain your excitement! 😘

Out of every material I usually HATE working with watercolour, it doesn’t come to me naturally and I don’t have a lot of control over it, however I’m working on getting better and am actually very happy with how this turned out! I reckon I wanna try figure drawing with watercolour next, thoughts? 🍭
This little girl will always be dear to my heart. I remember shooting her tiny precious premie newborn photos when her daddy’s wedding ring was bigger than her hand! Every year she grows and thrives and blossoms even more than the last. I love her personally and spirit. She’s a fighter and strong! You go girl 💋
If you’re one for affirmations, start your week with this:
"i am daring.
i am brave.
i am courage.
i am not intimidated by the unknown,
but move boldly towards my future.
i believe that as i take steps forward,
a path will clear for me + opportunities will find their way to me.
i do not allow my past to stand in my way or feed me whispers of insecurity.
i am not defined by what has or hasn't happened.
i am a dreamer who will not give up.
i am confident that i am here on this earth for such a time as this.
i will not stop working / creating / dreaming when the journey gets hard.
i lean into the hard moments with faith that i can accomplish anything i set my mind to.
i am consistent + fearless in the pursuit of my dreams,
regardless of who is or isn't cheering me on.
i commit to working towards my goals not for applause,
but for the ONE person that it may impact.
i believe that breakthrough is coming.
my season of flourishing is almost here.
i am growing stronger + wiser everyday.
i will reach my goals + fulfill my purpose.
today, i stay full of faith and take one step closer to my destiny."
