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 […]

These days of playing outside are drawing to a close and I'm not happy about it. Snow in September. No thanks. The only thing to now look forward too is family movie marathons which I guess tide me over until next summer because they are full of snuggles on the couch...we are putting together a list of fun movies for the winter...what oldies but goodies do you love?
How's everybody's Monday going? I'd really like to be binge watching Poldark, but instead I'm binge answering emails that I ignored all weekend! What about you? Want to do vs. Have to do???

I want it all. I want to be an amazing mom and an amazing business owner. I want to chase my big dreams and to be sitting on the sidelines as my kids chase theirs. 
It isn't going to be easy, but it is possible and the longer I have been in business the more I have seen that there are so many others out there who have that same goal. 
Whether its photography, videography, blogging, selling an MLM, graphic design, or one in a million other options, we want to build something that can be a BENEFIT to our families not a BURDEN. I am taking a big leap to not just chase my kids and be with my photography clients, but to also help more of you who have this same big goal, this goal to have it all! There's no reason we can't all achieve the dreams we have. We just need the tools and strategies to make them happen. So if you want to come join us for lots of strategy, tips, blueprints and advice you can put into action...if you want it all too. Come follow along at @sevensummerscreative if you want this too!!! Let's MAKE IT HAPPEN 💛 (if you want to see the full video the link is in my bio - @mass.medium did an amazing job!)

Raise your hand if you'd rather being doing Sunday than Monday 🙋🏼
While all the world is staring up at the eclipse tomorrow 😎, I'll be over here all emotional over my boy turning eleven. #eclipse2017 #birthdayboy #eleven #howdidthishappen
This little sweetie wants to hang out with me in my office while I do a little work this morning. And do
Hello 🍁⚾️ #fallball #baseballforlife
🤦🏼‍♀️ #nowords #thisgirl #gottakeepmyeyeonher #threegoingonsixteen
Me today...only not as cute, with a runny nose and scratchy throat. Game plan is to sleep all day so I can shoot all evening. Two super important sessions tonight! 😷😥😴😛 #norestfortheweary #momlife
Only two more sleeps... #bearlake #ineedavacation
Okay. That was hands down the worst. Seriously, the worst. To watch the light go out of my little girls eyes and to watch her all but disappear as she went completely limp was more than my momma heart could handle. I was not prepared. Thankfully, it was only about an hour of worry and panic. With that waiver they have you sign, I couldn't help but wonder,
I should be sound asleep right now (curse you Sunday nap) but instead I'm lying here wide awake worrying about this little sweetie. She has more dental surgery tomorrow 😬 and this time they are putting her under general anesthesia. Fingers crossed she handles it well and has a quick recovery 🤞🏻😥
