Happy Thursday, y’all! These last few weeks I’ve been tuning into quite a few webinars that I discovered through my Instagram feed. One of the best parts about webinars is that they usually have a replay period, which allows me the opportunity to snuggle on my couch, grab a cup of tea, and spend an hour or so snagging some great tips from others in similar experiences.
Lately, I’ve attended webinars related to range a topics from improving my photographing skills to running a photography business while balancing everyday life. I’ve had the privilege to sit through three really informative hours that left me feeling thankful that I cleared the time in my schedule to attend. Today I am sharing with y’all a few of my favorite Instagram accounts and take backs from recent webinars these individuals have put together. I hope you enjoy!
If you are looking for honest words and motivation…
Hannah Brencher. I love the honesty in Hannah’s words. I’ve followed her blog for quite some time now, and recently just reread her book If You Find This Letter (it is a great read). Her words are very moving to me, and I love how she writes from the heart. Hannah’s latest endeavor is creating a webinar series (check out the #CravingSeries on Instagram) that will be available once month where she shares her thoughts on a specific topic. The webinar hosted on Monday focused on craving balance. I am always open to hearing ideas and thoughts on balance and prioritizing life. So, when I saw the post on Instagram that she was creating a webinar, I immediately signed up. Within the first twenty minutes, I knew why I needed to hear her words Monday night. Just because you want something doesn’t mean you are ready for it. Those words, y’all. They describe my current season perfectly. Her webinar also gave me perspective on what I need to focus on each day, which for me is building a solid foundation so that when the time comes I am ready. If you are looking for honest words and tips on balance, check out Hannah’s Instagram account and keep an eye out for her next #CravingSeries webinar.
If you are looking for tips on using your DSLR camera or mastering manual mode or need composition ideas for photographing your children…
Courtney with Click It Up a Notch. I love the Click It Up A Notch website because that’s where I initially began gaining confidence and perspective with shooting in manual mode and what it could do for my images. I knew once seeing the images that Courtney captured, I wanted my images to be just as beautiful. I recently participated in a webinar where Courtney teamed up with fellow photographer Cole Joseph to share some tips on improving your images. This is the third webinar I’ve attended that Courtney has put together, and each time I leave her webinars with more ideas to improve my photography and guidance on what I want to work on next when it comes to creating beautiful images.

If you are looking for inspiration for maternity and motherhood photographs or guidance on a photography business or just love beautiful images to fall across your Instagram feed…
The Fount Collective and Tiffany Farley. A couple of years ago, I began following motherhood photographer Tiffany Farley through Instagram. Her images for maternity sessions are absolutely beautiful as she has a great perspective for photographing women during this time in their lives. Once her photography business began, Tiffany worked to create The Fount Collective, which is a publication devoted to motherhood. Last week The Fount Collective teamed up with photographer Tenth and Grace to produce a webinar focusing on photography businesses tips as well as advice on how she has balanced life and business. Because of where I am at in my career, I couldn’t resist signing up for this webinar, and I am so glad I did. After hearing the interview with Tenth and Grace, I felt motivated to continue to search for what will work best for my business as well as gained some guidance on what I need to focus on during this phase. If you are looking for guidance on a photography business or just in the mood for beautiful maternity images to be a part of your feeds, check out the Instagram accounts below.
