Working With Abbey

Keala Jarvis

There was so much that I was going through before taking Abbey’s workshop. I felt like I wasn’t getting the right kind of momentum with my business. I took on EVERYTHING. I had a lack of inspiration and huge doubts in my ability to be a creative business owner. I put my personal life on […]

I struggled with time management and taking too long to do business related things. I had no plan for my business and felt like it was all over the place. My family was being put on the back burner so I had enough time to do all my work. Teach me your ways. Abbey seemed […]

Before attending the workshop I was a struggling photographer. I was one of those people who said, “I do photography… like on the side, and I love it!” But afterwards and since then, I proudly tell people, “I’m a professional photographer!” and I live that way! I still work part time while in school but […]

I used to be so much more scattered and forgetful. My biggest frustration prior to meeting Abbey was that I would have post it notes everywhere and still forget things. I was a disorganized mess and I felt like I never had time for my kids which was part of the core reasons I started […]

I needed direction to make my goals a reality. I was shooting just about everything, but trying to start specializing in weddings which is what  I was really wanting to specialize in. I had done multiple inspirational shoots to help boost my brand and just kept thinking it would be taking off soon, but it […]

Before the workshop with Abbey, I was searching for more specific advice from someone who understood my local market and demographic. I was in my second year of shooting weddings and I had invested a lot of money into my photography education already. But truth be told, most of the larger workshops I had attended […]

It has literally been a perfect birthday. All I wanted was to spend the day with the family and the hubby surprised me by taking the day off and that is exactly what we did. Just the five of us. My favorite place to be ❤️ I'm so grateful for all of you who shared birthday wishes. This day has been absolutely perfect and I have a feeling that is how this coming year is going to be. #bringon35 ✌🏻
When you find a swimsuit you forgot you bought, and it's from @jcrew, and it makes your #mombod look a little less mom'ish. 👙☀️🎂 #happybirthdaytome
They say it's my birthday... #35 #partytime #donutcake
Sundays + Sunshine + Sports 🌳☀️🏀 #allmyfavorites
This is how you start summer break in style 😎☀️📚✏️We seriously live in the best neighborhood, no wonder we can't talk ourselves into buying a house #snowcones #schoolsout #nowwhat
Playing sports photographer with my boy tonight. He was pretty interested when I told them that sports photographers got to go to the World Series, less interested when I told him they don't make much money. 😂⚾️📷 #sportsphotography #littleleague
As we were getting ready to leave the grave my sweet tender hearted boy asked if we should say a prayer for grandma. It was so sweet and thoughtful and makes me so proud to be his momma. It's these moments where I miss her the most. Mostly I miss that she doesn't have the chance to see them and know them. She's missing so much. These three little ones are the greatest blessing in my life and I know that she would have just loved them and they would have been the light of her life. I know that someday we will all be together and this life will be just a moment in time, but it's still a moment that I wished we had and that my heart hurts that she is not here to know them now. #mrtripp #memorialday #missingmom #missingmoments
Bringing grandma some flowers this Memorial Day 💗🌼💐
Don't let this fool you, earlier today these two considered murdering each other over who was going to load the dishwasher. 😂 #brotherlylove #usuallytheirfriends #exceptwhenchoresareinvolved
I have such a love hate relationship with Monday's sometimes. I love routine and schedule. I love having all the boys in the family get up and get going with their days. I love starting fresh and getting stuff done. But I also wished I could just give in to the super lazy couch potato side of me and just sit in bed and watch Netflix all day. Anyone else out there wished that Monday's officially started at noon?
These three over-energized goof balls are the best thing that ever happened to me...besides their daddy of course. And being their mother was what I was born to do. Sometimes I'm great at it and other times, well lets not talk about that. But I keep trying and with each day I think I'm getting a little better and figuring it out a little bit more. I asked both the boys today if they had to give a talk about what they learned from me the 10yr old said
I have been waiting and waiting for this gal to join the world. I think I was ready for her before her momma was. And I was so lucky to be there the moment she made her arrival. My plane literally landed in AZ and I headed straight to the hospital. It was one of the happiest moments of my life. I am so in love with her and so happy for her mommy and daddy. Just had to share a little peek of miss Riley....and can we all just agree that her hair is amazing 👶🏻❤️ @foilandink
I'm leaving for a week on Sunday to head to Arizona and have a list of about 83 things to do, so naturally I'm laying in bed picking a new outfit for my @bitmoji and settling in to take a big nap. It's amazing to me how incredibly lazy I can be sometimes...and how insanely productive I can be at others. Maybe after a good nap I can get a handful of those 83 things done before it's time to head to the summertime state 😎🌴☀️
