Tiffany Lobdell | Hair Stylist & Master Colorist

One of my favorite quotes is “Feel the fear and do it anyway” There have been so many times in my career that I was scared or nervous and had the fear of failure. Each time I felt that fear I didn’t stop or let it control me, It pushed me to accomplish my goals and dreams and step outside my comfort zone. I know it can be scary sometimes but once you push through that fear, great things can happen. Even if some things may not go the way you want it to, you can learn and grow from the mistakes.

Nichole Maddox | Lifestyle Content Creator

My favorite quote is dreaming, after all, is a form of planning. It means so much to me. You can dream anything, but more importantly, it’s what you do after that dream that will define who you are. When we think about our goals and aspirations, we have to think about planning them and where we want to be with them by a certain time. To me, when you dream about the way you want your life, your are also are putting a plan behind it. I love that it basically says, no matter what you want in life, you can get it. Read more>>

Erica Snyder | Event Manager

A friend once told me when I was in the heat of proving my point years ago on a Facebook debate, “Erica, you will attract more bees with honey than with vinegar” That phrase always stuck with me. Not only do I no longer get into heated debates on social media which has, by far, reduced my level of stress, I take into consideration this phrase anytime I am in disagreement with someone. When I stop to think that being nasty doesn’t get my point across regardless of what it is, I learn a lot more about myself and the other person’s point of view. Read more>>

Amanda Thurman | Photographer

One of my favorite quotes is by Mathiole, “Art speaks when words are unable to explain.” The want the images I take to be so full of emotion that they speak for themselves. I hope that my clients can look back at their images and feel all the same emotions they felt on that day, even emotions that can’t be simplified by words. Read more>>

Yasmin Tajik | Professional Photographer and Drone Pilot

My favorite quote is: “Come to the edge,” he said. “We can’t, we’re afraid!” they responded. “Come to the edge,” he said. “We can’t, We will fall!” they responded. “Come to the edge,” he said. And so they came. And he pushed them. And they flew.” ― Guillaume Apollinaire I love this quote, because we all face fears, and sometimes it is that fear that blinds us to opportunity. Many times others see potential in us, and they can encourage us and inspire us, but it is up to use to take those steps forward, as scary as they may be. Read more>>
