Meet Sparrow - Our Newest Fur Baby | Englewood, Ohio

Bringing Sparrow into our home was a very spur of the moment decision. One of my former co-workers posted on Facebook that she was giving away kittens, I took a screenshot and sent it to my husband, Anthony. I originally had no intention of getting a kitten, but Anthony's response was: "We can get a kitten if you want one."

Why You Should Take Advantage of InstaMeets | Misfit & Co.

Over the summer I started to attend InstaMeets (if you’re not familiar with the term it’s basically a group of Instagram users who get together to take pictures and videos) that were organized by an old high school acquaintance and fellow photographer and I can’t express to you how much fun it has been.

Here’s a few reasons why I like them and you as a starting photographer, or even a starting model, should take advantage of them:

Every day I am thankful that I’m slowly breaking through my introverted shell to create and capture moments like these, but what warms my heart the most is the friendships I gain with my clients.  I get to seem them grow and go through their own stages in life which is the most beautiful blessing of all.  I am excited to see what the future has in store for Kayla and can’t wait for our next adventure together!

Taking the Plunge from Hobby to Career | Misfit & Co.

Taking that plunge was (and still is) scary as HELL!

It’s scary because it’s new, unpredictable, irresponsible (since I didn’t have a lump sum of money saved), out of my comfort zone, and to be completely honest with you – I’m afraid of falling flat on my face.  I know that failing is all part of the process of success, but that doesn’t make it any less terrifying and I’m going to take a wild guess that since you’re reading this you feel the same way too.

Saying Goodbye to My First Apartment | Misfit & Co.

I had no idea what was in store for me in the upcoming years when I signed that lease.  I experienced my first heart break outside of high school, I soon understood the responsibilities of being an adult when no one was paying half the rent, and why my mother worked so much when I was a kid.  Most of the twenty-one-year old’s that I knew were enjoying being a carefree adolescent when I was juggling three jobs to pay my bills and put gas in my car.

Changing Your Mind | Misfit & Co.

I don’t know about you, but I have always felt this invisible pressure that I couldn’t change my mind especially now as an adult and as a business owner.  Can I just say this – what a load of rubbish!  As humans we are constantly learning and growing therefore the knowledge we gain will influence our decisions in life.  Where would you be if you hadn’t changed your mind at all – if you remained to stick with every original decision you ever made?
