I’m a very random person. On the fly. Let’s go. Let’s try something new! I’m in.  Or just call it what it is… ADD. Today I painted my nails (that’s not all I did, haha) and then I thought, “Oh I should throw my hair up and try a new hair style.”  So I did. This morning I saw  Ruffled Snob’s instagram  hair tutorial.  Which by the way, her’s looks WAY better.  I have a lot of practice ahead of me.  Yikes!  Here is what mine looks like.

This wedding!  I loved everything about it from the couple to all the little details that they incorporated with the Groom’s Samoan heritage. Yes I did get to shoot at Hope Glen Farm but I also had the opportunity to work with the Groom’s sister Kari from The Bliss Life. She’s amazing!  Not only does she help you plan & design your wedding this girl does amazing florals! Turns out I absolutely love carnations now! Be sure to check out the rest of the incredible vendors that made this wedding possible below. Congrats to Kara & Adam!

  • LOVE this wedding, and the location is just stunning!!! Oh my gosh and the mini-pineapple bouts?! The whole wedding was full of beautiful personal touches! Wonderful job, Whitney!!

I moved Juice box’s bed into my office last night and he is just loving being comfortable and right next to me all day.  It’s like the best of both world’s for this dog. The tennis ball in his bed kills me. This is how he spent most of his morning. He’s just so darn cute.  <– I’ll remember I said this the next time he breaks my mirror or gets into the garbage 😀

Sometimes I pretend I’m going into the office to make me feel more productive and I get completely ready for the day every morning.  No pajamas here, folks.  Ok, maybe somedays I do!  But somedays call for red lip stick.  It’s amazing what it does to your productivity, haha. Tricking the mind. I’ll even throw on a pair of tennis shoes when I’m home.  I feel when I get to comfortable then I tend to relax more and lose that productive spirit.  So cheers to putting on your boots!

So in being productive, I have also taken on another hat.  Editing.  That’s right, a part from my own editing for my own photography business I edit for other photographers. And dare I say, I LOVE IT!!!!  I love seeing other photographers creative perspective, new weddings, and even babies and seniors. And I love that the photographers are just tickled that having that off their plate brings them much relief. It’s been fun thus far and I thank all the photographers have have used services!  I am truly greatful.  I hope I have made your life more productive and less stressed.

If you are a photographer looking for editing services please contact me at info@whitneyfurst.com . I make it super easy to send  images.  Turn around time is between 4-5days and I’ll give you a date of when you will receive your images back.  Here are a few examples of edits.  But we can certainly work together to create your editing style.  I’m happy  to take 4 images free to see if we would be a good fit.

Be productive!!!!!
