Just a girl with a camera

For those of you that don’t know me, I am a lover of many things!  I am very hands on and I love to dabble in many different arts and crafts that make this world a more beautiful place.

Last spring I had the opportunity to take Senior Portraits for my best friend’s oldest daughter.  There was little preparation that went into what this photo shoot would include.  However, I AM a very visual person and tend to notice everything so I at least had a few ideas of some different locations that I thought would make great backgrounds.

This was my first experience taking pictures that were for more than just my personal collection.  And while I am a perfectionist and work really hard on whatever project is at hand, I very rarely have the courage to be openly proud of something I’ve done.

This is so NOT the case with this photo shoot.

Of course, it helped that I had an amazing model to work with ❤

This, my friends, is a rare moment…… this is a project that I am not only proud of……. I’m pretty sure I freaking nailed it!  It was SO much fun!  I loved capturing these beautiful moments for this sweet girl.

Trust me when I say, I wanted to rush right home and start a photography business! – You see, I was born with an entrepreneur’s spirit and I tend to want to make a living at anything and everything that inspires me.

There are many reasons I didn’t follow through with this desire to start a photography business.  I weighed all the options and decided that for me, photography would just have to be a hobby.  And I’m OK with that!  It is so much fun and when you end up with beautiful shots, it is incredibly exciting!

Today, I am going to share some of these photos with you.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

** I think one of the reasons I am SO in love with these photos is that I did NOT Photoshop them in ANY way!  What you see, is what I captured ❤ (I did however use PicMonkey to watermark them (I’m not entirely sure I did that part right!) and I cropped 2 of these photos down just a smidge)

Act Fast!

Willing Beauty is putting a temporary hold on Beauty Advisor Enrollment Monday night…… that’s tonight!!  If you are considering becoming a part of this ground level, game changing business opportunity, now is the time!

There are 4 types of you reading this post.  You each have certain desires from your products and I am going to address them now 🙂

For my ‘Product Junkie’ cyber friends out there – I used to be one!  I LOVED trying many different types of products on my face.  Once I learned about the harmful chemicals and toxins in my products and I purged them all, I had to start over.  My options are different now that I am purchasing only products that are safe to use.  One of the cool things about the Willing Beauty Regimen is that it is only 3 easy steps in the morning and 3 easy steps at night!  It has made my selection process SO much easier and the products are formulated to work together.  They truly are the perfect match!

For those of you dealing with Adult Acne – Friends, I live the life!  Forever I felt like it was just me!  I had no idea that the products I was using were contributing to my skin problem. I have switched what I am using and I see my face starting to change!  I love that I don’t have to put so much on my face to cover the blemishes – because slowly but surely my acne is starting to heal ❤

For my health conscience friends out in cyber world – I work hard making my shopping list and planning my healthy meals for the week – but geez, I never considered that the moisturizer I use every day on my skin might not be good for me. I have enough to think about, don’t you? I have made a commitment to make some changes. When you know better, you do better. Did you know that the U.S. only bans or regulates 30 ingredients from your skincare? I think it’s time to switch to safer! This is why I choose Willing Beauty and at the same time I’m keeping it simple! Did you know about this?

For you potential Willing Beauty business owners out there – So many times it seems we are playing catch up!  Just when I think I’m ahead, a random expense comes up and I am like…WHAT? You need new cleats? UGHH! I don’t have time for an extra job that takes me away from all that my guys have going on – I need a job that I can do from the within my families already crazy schedules and pays for the never ending stream of athletic wear! Are you in the same boat? What caught you by surprise this week? Hit me up because I want to talk to you about what I have started – products I believe in and use myself with a business model that utilizes social media tools to share

Hear it from the TOP!

Check out this video in which Co-Founder Chrissy Weems and Rock-Star Chemist/CEO Annette McEvoy share the low-down on the clinical results of our Hy+5 Complex Daily Regimen

Are you as excited as I am?!?

Heart Kerissa

Clinical Results are IN!!!

Soooooo…. it’s a pretty complicated thing to sell a product or products that one has not even been able to try.  Especially when those products come from a company that has not even officially launched yet!

I joined Willing Beauty because I have cut toxins from my entire beauty regimen and it’s really exciting to me to able to use products that have such awesome ingredients as well as a staff that truly pushes to be a force for good.  While simply researching the company, the ingredients and the founders were enough to get me pumped about Willing Beauty, I realize that not everyone’s minds work that way!

Willing Beauty sent our Hy + 5 Complex Daily Regimen out to be clinically tested for 30 days which is how long a set lasts.  Choosing to do clinical testing can be pretty scary as you are completely vulnerable to the results!

Friends, I have to say, you are going to be BLOWN AWAY with the results found in these clinical trials!  Like seriously, Willing Beauty has hit the mother-load with our proprietary Hy + 5 Complex blend!!!!

Not only are the results fantastic, it is SO exciting that Willing Beauty puts our safety first!  Check this out:

Safer  Effective  Better-for-you  Clean  Free of parabens, sulfates, mineral oils, DEA, phthalates chemical sunscreens & synthetic fragrances  Safe for sensitive skin  Skin-friendly ingredients  Never tested on animals  Certified with the Leaping Bunny Program  Dermatologist-tested  Allergy-tested
Products tested for safety  Ingredients screened for safety

How many of you can that these things are top priorities with the companies that produce your skin care lines?

OK…. sorry…. I get SO excited about the fact that these skincare products are SAFE to use, I get a little carried away!

Back to the clinical results!  Here there are friends, prepare to be wowed!

These results truly are incredible in the beauty industry!

If you have been sitting on the fence, trying to decide if this business is right for you, these results should offer you encouragement and peace of mind that Willing Beauty  is not only serious about the safety of our products, Willing Beauty is committed to producing products that are extremely effective ❤

40 before 40

Hey Friends!  I was texting with my sister earlier today and my 40 before 40 list came up.  It reminded me that I would like to share it with you ❤

If you don’t have a 40 before 40 list or a 30 before 30 list or a 20 before 50 list… you get the idea… (it definitely depends on how old you are and what age you want to complete your list by) I encourage you to make one. I will be 35 this year, so I have some time to work on mine.

Before I made my list there were SO many times I would say…. I’d love to do that someday!  And then I would go on about my crazy day and forget all about it.  So, I decided to make a list of ‘those’ things I want to do so I don’t forget them (those of you with small children, well…. with any children at all, may be able to relate to the scatterbrained life of motherhood).  Before I made my list I decided that:

  1. I would put both big dreams and achievable goals on my list.  Putting achievable goals on your list will encourage you to continue moving forward.  It’s always a great motivator to mark things off your list and to visually see your list changing shape.
  2. I decided that I am not going to go crazy trying to achieve every single thing on this list.  It’s really just a list of things I would like to do.  I don’t feel pressured to accomplish them asap…. for me, that would turn my -mostly just fun- list into a work list.  I have enough of those already!  And besides, the ones that don’t get marked off will surely be moved to my 50 before 50 list!  Ummmmm…… OK.  That’s a little further ahead than I am comfortable thinking about right now…. but you see what I mean.

*Just to clarify – I live in a house full of boys…. So when I say’boys’on my list, I’m referring to my hubby (whom I also call Papa Bear) as well as our three children.
