fuji xt1 mirrorless camera review

In this photography tip video I review the Fuji XT1 camera share my favorite features and some photos!

Hey y’all! Today I am reviewing the FUJI XTI mirrorless digital camera. I share my favorite functions on the camera and share sample images.
This is my favorite mirrorless camera I have tried but I would not only use this camera for a wedding or a fashion shoot simply because the focus isn’t quick enough. This camera is perfect for traveling, bloggers, and mommy that love to photograph the kids!

    Thuy - Thanks for the review, Jana! I didn’t know that this was the camera that Chloe’s 1st birthday was shot with!

Having a strong core from the inside out is a beautiful goal. It takes allot of work to have strong abs and it takes even more work to have unwavering core values.

Our core muscles give us balance and stability. The core is what helps you catch yourself before you trip and fall.  Our personal core values guide us in our behavior and choices that we make in life.

The first step to having a strong core from the inside out is defining your own personal core values.

So I feel like I know myself and have a good understanding of who I am and what I stand for but when you really get clear and specific about your values like write them down and spend time accessing them it gets way more interesting:)

So I want to share this online “Core Value Assessment” by Herb Stevenson with you . Its a really cool exercise and I totally recommend it.  I hope you gain as much for a little self reflection as I did. As always ..

Stay Inspired!

Valerie & Geoff brought a chic east coast vibe to the west coast for this amazing wedding. This wedding planned by Details Details was not only stunning but a freaking blast! The energy was so great, I felt like I was photographing Frank Sinatra’s wedding, it just had this classic chic feeling to it. I have the list of vendor’s at the bottom of the post!

Hey y’all! I’m excited to announce that I’m hosting a one day intensive photography workshop this Spring.

The first part of the day we will cover branding, social media, and business strategies on how to attract your ideal bride. The second part of the day will be spent photographing a couple. You will watch me work with the couple and each student will get individual time working with the couple creating a visual story through photography. The photo session will be followed by a Q&A session.

Happy Friday y’all! So lately I’ve been going to SoulCycle in the mornings and I love it. I’m not a big cycler but the inspiration that the teachers give during the class makes you feel like you’re at church. Here are just a few quotes from today’s class.

“How you do anything is how you do everything.”
“If you’re not challenged you will not change.”
“There are two things that will make you have a bad day:
1) Comparing yourself to others
2) Living in the past”

The last one was my favorite.

I joke with my friends that I’m going to “church” in the morning when I go to SoulCycle because I leave so full of amazing energy.

    Iris - Hi Jana, I love spin and would do it religiously a few years ago….then life happen and it got me in a rut…BAD! But a few weeks ago I committed again to spin and signed up at a studio close to me in Long Beach (we sooo need a Soul cycle in LB). I am again hooked!!! I love the last quote and try to practice it everyday as its so easy to compare yourself to others and get in that viscious cycle. Thanks for the inspiration! Xo
