FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Will you take my picture?
Sure! While spots are limited, please find more info on my photography page and send me an email from there! I also have a new, separate IG account just for photos: @SavannahSmiledPhoto, so follow me there.
What camera(s) do you use?
Most of my personal shots are taken with my iPhone or Canon G7X mark ii.
For portraits, I use my Nikon D610 with a 50mm 1.4 lens (I rarely ever change it).
How long have you been blogging?
In July 2011, I made one of my first blog posts recapping a trip to NYC. I had taken hundreds of photos and wanted an outlet to share them. This is before the IG boom, so blogging was the way to go. The rest of that year, I sporadically used the site for class writing assignments and a few other diary-style entries. When I graduated college in 2012, I started getting a little more consistent with documenting my life.
Do you make money blogging?
Not much. It hasn’t been my focus for many years, so it is not a main money-maker. You can visit my disclosure page to read more about ways this blog has made money in the past and how it could continue in the future.
What should I do while I’m in Dallas?
I’m out in the ‘burbs now, but there’s always something fun going on in the Dallas area. You can see some of the things I’ve been doing in Dallas by browsing these posts. It’s a cool city to visit! Hit me up if you have a specific question about the time you’ll be here.
Where did you get [this item] on [this blog post]?
I try hard to post where things are from in each blog post I make. If I’ve missed one, just leave me a comment on the particular blog post and I’ll do my best to get back with you!
How did you and your husband meet?
We became friends in our college dorm lobby in 2008. Basically, he needed three quarters to finish his laundry and that’s the exact amount of change I had in my wallet. A meet-cute worthy of a Buzzfeed listicle.
Where did you get married?
What do you do for a living?
Like a lot of creatives, I have a 9-5, as well as a 5-9.
Full-time, I am a digital storyteller and content creator for our public school district. I studied Strategic Communications, Advertising and Marketing, so this job is the perfect way to get to use those passions, while supporting my local schools. I’m a daughter, sister and wife of Texas public school educators, so being in this environment is the perfect fit for me. I joke that I’m the yearbook kid who never grew up. So true!
Part-time, I’m a photographer, content curator and professional brainstormer. I’m pretty sure my inventive brain truly never stops working. I’m an avid podcast-listener, so I’m always listening to and learning from the latest trends, strategies and tips for creatives. If you need help with web, social, copy or creation, I probably have a plan for you.
