Blue Apron Review

For the past two weeks I have been trying out Blue Apron! It's been honestly really fun. I get to try out new recipes and taste new things that I normally wouldn't try! Since the holidays are around the corner and I will be traveling very soon I thought what better time to try! Blue Apron is great for couples or for the whole family! they have options per how many people you will be feeding. I choose the three meals a week but you can also go two to two. Before each week’s meals are delivered you get to choose what meals sound best to you! They everything is prepackaged and delivered right to your door. It honestly, worked out really well. They only things you need to have is the tools, salt, pepper and olive oil which is all what most people have anyway.

Why you should have your pictures taken

Having your pictures taken may seem like something that we cringe at the thought of, but take a moment and hear me out. Think back to a company you really liked, a company that you really connected with. Why did you connect with it so much? It is probably because you can see yourself in the brand, in the owner, etc. Those companies usually have a face to their brand. It makes people connect with their company on another level. Which then leads to loyalty to the company. What I am getting at is being a small business owner is hard, you don’t want to be another faceless business. You want to be able to connect with your customers or clients so they will want to invest in what you want to offer.

My Adventures in Walt Disney World

After much anticipation I have finally put together all of my thoughts from my Walt Disney World trip I went on last week. If you know me you would know that I am a HUGE Disney Fan. Even though I have gone to Disney twice this year alone, I still love it just as much as the time I walked down Main Street USA for the first time when I was four years old.

How to take great self portraits

As a photographer you may not think about having portraits taken of your self very often. But this is very important to establish your business and have future clients be able to see and connect with the face behind the camera. Not everyone has all the money in the world to hire another photographer to take pictures for them so the next best thing is self portraits. This may seem pretty daunting especially if you have never tried this before but I can assure you that there are easy ways to get stunning photos.
