Why You Need Chatbooks in Your Life! https://www.hayleybradshaw.com/blog/2017/10/why-you-need-chatbooks-in-your-life Today I'll be telling you ALL about Chatbooks and how they have changed my life for the better!  First, let's back up a few years.

When I had my first baby, Instagram had just barely hit the scene.  I had an android phone, so I couldn't even have Instagram - which just killed me because of my job.  I had so many pictures I needed the world to see!  I had hundreds upon hundreds of photos on my phone, from my son's birth to his first birthday.  I backed them all up to my computer whenever I needed to free up some space. 

Cut to my third pregnancy.  I had an Instagram account, but didn't love the idea of posting literally everything my kids did from day to day - not gonna lie, my friends that posted 100 pictures a day, every day, drove me totally crazy.  I mean, I love you and your kids, but I don't care what they have for lunch every single day.

Then - my light bulb clicked on.

I had heard of Chatbooks, but never looked into them.  Once I learned more about Chatbooks and how amazingly awesome they were - my master plan hatched and my new journaling baby was born.

I made Instagram accounts for each of my kids.  They are private and only our family follows them - gotta keep those cute babies internet safe!  Wondering how to keep them extra safe? Check this out. 

This is how I started journaling like I should have been since my first son was born.  Not only did our family get to keep up on our kids and their lives, but my husband (who works out of town) could see what we did everyday and read the funny things they said.  

Each account is linked to my Chatbooks account and everything AUTOSHIPS!!  I don't even have to think about books.  I have the option to rearrange, exclude and edit any of my posts before my books print.  The app on my phone sends me a notification when one of my kiddie's books is about to go to print.  I go into the app, edit it if I need to, and my work here is done.

At the end of every day, or whenever I have pictures on my phone, I add them to Instagram and delete them from my phone. 

I also take photos of all the artwork my kids do in school.  Then, instead of keeping every single thing from the year, I make a custom Chatbook and print it at the end of the year.  Adios Clutter!!

Because I didn't have Instagram for most of my first and second babies lives, I made custom books of all the photos I had on my computer since their first day of life.  And Chatbooks automatically sorted them by date and made them into a book for me!!  Like, how do ever beat that? I'll tell you know.

YOU DON'T!!

It's just too easy, my friends!!  And so affordable!

-----------

Since I'm a pathological photo taker, I have Custom books for all of our trips, too.

I know you're dying to try them - you'd be crazy not to! It's so easy, and I feel like Super Mom because I journal like no one's business AND my phone is conveniently photo free - no more "Your Phone Is Almost Out Of Storage" warnings for me!  Jealous? You don't have to be!

Chatbooks, my friends!  

You're life is about to change!

For a FREE CHATBOOK - click this link -->  FREE CHATBOOK

Not only has it made my life a million times easier, but my kids LOVE them.  They get SOOO Excited when they see a little square green envelop in the mail!

AND.. yes there is MORE amazing things about Chatbooks!!  You can reorder or order more copies whenever you want!  My mom orders them for herself of our trips and my Kids Instagrams.  We even have a family Instagram account where we all sign in when we're on vacation and post all of our pictures.  Then we get those books for Christmas from my parents. 

AAAAAAND - it's another back up of your photos! You can never have too many back ups.  If you've ever had a computer crash, you know this to be TRUE!

I can't sing the praises of Chatbooks enough!  It is by FAR the best mom thing I've done so far.

How to Keep Your Kids Safe on Instagram https://www.hayleybradshaw.com/blog/2017/9/how-to-keep-your-kids-safe-on-instagram Instagram - how I love thee.  

In fact, I haven't met a single person who doesn't love Instagram.

What I don't love... creepers. 

And they are EVERYWHERE on the Interwebs.  Especially Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

If you have a public account, I know that you've been followed by someone creepy.  It's just a fact of life.  Why do these people follow you?  I don't even want to know.  Are they following me to see my children?  Can they figure out where I live by the photos I post?  They could figure out the names of my children and family members.  They could easily figure out what school they go to.  I just broke out into a cold sweat. 

HOLY. CRAP.

Pass.  Hard pass.  I would rather have safe children than a million Instagram followers every which way to Sunday.

SO! How can you keep you and your family safe on Instagram?  Here's how I do it.

1) My kids have a private Instagram.

     Only my family can follow them.  I don't even let me friends follow them.  I post literally everything about my kids on these accounts and print them as books       later on.  I love my friends, but they don't need to know every single detail of my life or my kid's life.  None of these accounts have profile pictures (another way to keep the creeps out), and I don't follow anyone in return from my kid accounts. 

2) Never post innocent nudity.

     Yes, those naked bums are cute.  So cute that some weirdo is going to steal it.  Even undies and diaper shots are pushing it, in my opinion.  You can never be too careful.

3) Consider not using your child's real name.

    Refer to them as their first name initial, or a nickname.  I had someone approach me once who I had never met in my life and call all three of my kids by their first names.  It really freaked me out and I deleted almost everything about them off of my account.  That stranger knew way too much for my liking.  If she, a middle aged woman from my own town, knew - then all the creeps did as well.  

4) Never post your home's street sign or street number. 

    No one needs to know the exact location of your home.  From there, they can find your school and who knows what else.  Even pictures of the exterior of your house can lead a motivated person to find it.  Sharing your home is totally fine! We want to see it!  But, be mindful of what parts you're sharing.

5) Turn off your location.

    Did you just drop your baby off at daycare and post a picture? Did it have the location attached?  You just gave the world your child's location for the next so many hours.  I shudder to think what could happen.  Always better safe than sorry. 

6) Wait until you're home to post about your vacation.

    I know it's tempting to post that amazing sunset picture while you're in Mexico or that cute shot of your little one running on the beach in California.  But - you are alerting the world that your house is currently empty.  Don't disclose the location of your hotel until you're home, either.  It is SO easy for someone to find you and your kids.  If i sound over protective or too cautious - oh, I know that I am!  I'm going to say it again (and every day until I die)... better safe than sorry. 

7) Some things are too personal to share.

    Contrary to some very popular Instagram accounts, you don't need to post everything.  Some things in life aren't meant to be shared.  It's okay to keep some things just for your memory books (or your private accounts).  

I hope this helps you and your cute little ones to be a little more protected on social media! The internet and social media are amazing things! But...

one more time with feeling!

Better safe than sorry!

-xo hayley

Snow Canyon Eshelles https://www.hayleybradshaw.com/blog/2016/11/snow-canyon-eshelles I think I've made my feeling about this team pretty clear over the year... screaming from the rooftops that I love them and all that!  I look forward to the Eshelle shoot all year! This year was particularly exciting! The entire team drove to Salt Lake to have something different - and I was pumped!  Shooting at the great Salt Lake was amazing... even though it smelled horrible and all of us were crying because the salt stung our eyes - or that was just me... I cried pretty much the whole time!  As always, I'm in love with how they turned out!!

Tommy & Makendie https://www.hayleybradshaw.com/blog/2016/11/tommy-makendie These Two!  Makendie is my most favorite cousin - and Tommy is her perfect match.  I loved getting to know him and see the two of them together during their portrait sessions and their wedding day.  Their engagement and bridal session could NOT have been better in the scenery department.  Winter doesn't offer a ton of options, but the lighting the day of their engagements was nothing short of magical!  Their bridal session had every good thing that Spring has to offer!! The cherry blossoms!! Amazing.

Their wedding day was gorgeous and one of the most fun weddings I've ever been to! They did all of the decor themselves - can you believe that?! It was a stunning spring wedding and I was so happy and honored that they chose me to be their photographer!!

Lucky for me, Makendie is a photographer/videographer, too!! We get to shoot wedding together all the time and I love it!!

  Floral by Southern Blossoms - the best ever!

Black and White https://www.hayleybradshaw.com/blog/2016/11/black-and-white What started out as a fun side project for me to do something different turned into an almost six month project! It was so much fun.  I loved ONLY working in black and white - it really is a different world than color.   My two favorite model, Aynsley Ovard and Lauren Vickery, were champs shooting in my very professional studio *cough cough, my garage*.  The wind was blowing like crazy and stuff kept blowing into their eyes - I felt like the world class photographer that I so obviously am ;) 

Then, I decided my mom friends NEEDED to participate.  My brave friends let me bend them into all sorts of weird sitting positions and MY GOODNESS I have some beautiful friends.

A few months later, I decided to do a giveaway and had some of the most beautiful girls in Utah win!

I'm a fan of black and white, my friends!

I was pretty vague and scatter brained with my floral decisions, and Becky filled in all of the blanks for me and gave me EXACTLY what I wanted with very little input from my end.  Ooh la la dress rentals helped us find the perfect wardrobe! And Kacee Payne Beauty hit the nail on the head in the hair and make up department!  It was my dream team of vendors!! And my models - Audrey and Adrianna - were an absolute pleasure to photograph!!! I couldn't have made this session any more perfect if I tried!!

Skyler & Olivia - Bridals https://www.hayleybradshaw.com/blog/2016/4/skyler-olivia---bridals This day was amazing!  The first time Skyler saw Olivia in her dress was nothing short of magical.  Everyone cried - including me! They truly have such a special relationship!  And these photos - I can't even find words for how much I love them!!  Bloomers knocked it out of the park, as usual, with the floral!! 

 

Floral - Bloomers

Whitney & Josh - Engagment https://www.hayleybradshaw.com/blog/2016/4/whitney-josh---engagment This engagement session was one of my favorite from 2015! Not only were we in an incredible blizzard, but it was FREEZING!! And these two didn't even flinch - even when I made them throw snow balls with their bare hands :) I wasn't worried about them - they had enough chemistry to melt the snow and scorch the earth!

The Sargent Family https://www.hayleybradshaw.com/blog/2016/2/the-sargent-family I adore this family.  I met them for the first time when Joey was leaving for his mission - and this time they came to see me right before Jake left on his!  Luckily, I get to see Doree and Josie all of the time at preschool :) Miss Doree is the world's greatest teacher and my son adores her!

The Shakespeare Family https://www.hayleybradshaw.com/blog/2016/2/the-shakespeare-family I always feel so flattered and honored when clients come back year after year.  I've know this beautiful mamma for a very long time and she is just as beautiful inside!! I've loved getting to know her cute family - and I get to see them every week at preschool :) p.s this is a GREAT example of a mini shoot! It's the perfect amount of time for kids (and adults -ahem, husbands- who hate pictures)!

Skyler & Olivia Engagements https://www.hayleybradshaw.com/blog/2016/2/skyler-olivia-engagements These two were one of my favorite couples of 2015! They were just married this past weekend, and - let me just tell you - there is something seriously special about their love.  Skyler would look at Olivia and I could feel my eyes welling up.  They are 100% meant for each other - and it was an absolute joy to be their photographer!

Festival Styled Shoot https://www.hayleybradshaw.com/blog/2016/2/festival-styled-shoot I can't say enough about this session!! My best friend, Kacee - the AMAZING make up artist for this shoot, came up with the idea to do a Coachella/Festival themed shoot.  It took us almost a year to finally do it - but it was nothing short of perfect.  The picture perfect wardrobe was provided by Closet Revival in St. George - and it was exactly what I had pictured! Our models, Lullaby, Sammi, Kara and Karen were a dream to shoot!! The lighting was dreamy and the sunflowers made this shoot everything I envisioned and more!

Snow Canyon Eshelles https://www.hayleybradshaw.com/blog/2016/2/snow-canyon-eshelles  This is by far my favorite shoot of the year!! Dance photography is the most fun to photography, and it doesn't hurt when you have seventeen insanely talented, beautiful girls to capture!! I love working with these girls and LOVE watching them dance! They are so easy to direct and willing to try just about anything!! Including getting a giant bucket of water dumped on them, hiking miles through the desert, and being so nice with the fact that I can't remember any of their names (mom brain).  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Shelbee & Bo - Engagements https://www.hayleybradshaw.com/blog/2015/6/shelbee-bo---engagements This is my amazing cousin, Shelbee.  I didn't have any sisters until Bailee married into our family - but until then, I had my cousins.  I only have six girl cousins (out of like fifty), but they're all like sisters to me.  So, being able to capture Shelbee and her awesome sauce fiancé, Bo, was so much fun!  AND she's getting married on my wedding anniversary!! I couldn't pick a better person to share such a special day with!!

Spring Break https://www.hayleybradshaw.com/blog/2015/3/spring-break It's finally time for my maternity leave! I have one shoot to wrap up, then I am taking some much needed time off to be with my boys before baby girl arrives!  Every time I've taken time off to have a baby, I get almost overwhelmed by how amazing my job is.  My clients really are the best in the whole world.  So, thank you for all of your emails and texts (and all the future ones I'll receive, I'm sure) congratulating us on the baby! I wish I could take all your pictures every day of the year, but I'm looking forward to a little time off to enjoy a brand new baby!  You'll see a lot of her in the meantime, I promise.

Anyways! I've said it before, but one huge regret I have from my first pregnancy is the lack of pictures I took.  I have ONE pregnancy photo from my second pregnancy that I love - so this time, I wanted to do it right.  I searched and searched for exactly what I wanted, and had a custom flower crown made when I knew that the peach blossoms were going to be a possibility for my photos!  It is SOOOO worth the time, money and effort.  These pictures are everything I wanted - exactly how I pictured in my head!  Hats off to my cousin, Makendie - a budding photographer, for helping me with these! It's pretty rare that I relinquish control of my camera, and I can be pretty picky when it comes to how I'm photographed.  She did an amazing job!! I already cherish these photos so much.  We never in a million years thought we would have any girls, and for some reason that makes this pregnancy so special to me.  I adore my boys more than anything, but we are over the moon to be welcoming a daughter!  She's already a spoiled princess... that should make for an interesting eighteen years down the road :)

I appreciate all of you so much - my hormone soaked brain can't even find the words to tell you how much!  I'm looking forward to accepting clients in June - possibly sooner! So, keep an eye out on Facebook (Hayley Bradshaw Photography) and Instagram (@hayleybradshawphotography) for when I'll be booking again!  Now, I'm off to watch way too many hours of Netflix, dig in the sandbox with my boys, and fold teeny, tiny, PINK baby clothes until our daughter is FINALLY here!!

I can't say enough about her!  She is 1) beautiful - obviously 2) FUN! 3) So sweet.  I had a blast with her!  I loved working with her and her amazing mom!  The longer I live and work in St. George, the more I fall in love with it.  The historic houses are quickly becoming my favorite places to shoot! And it doesn't hurt when your model looks like Holly!

Chase & Bailee - Bridals https://www.hayleybradshaw.com/blog/2014/9/chase-bailee---bridals It's ONE WEEK until this beautiful couple's wedding!!  I am so beyond excited to finally have Bailee in our family!! My brother scored big time!  We couldn't decide on a location for their bridal pictures, so we kind of did a tour de St. George and hit up a little bit of everything!  The beautiful St. George Temple (where they're getting married), a lush green oasis, a historical downtown St. George house, our family's farm, and the stunning red rocks!  I love all of them - and I know you will, too!

Chase & Bailee - Engagements https://www.hayleybradshaw.com/blog/2014/8/chase-bailee---engagements This is my brother and his beautiful fiancé, Bailee!  This was one of those sessions where the stars, planets, moons - everything aligned! It was beyond perfect.  We were spending the fourth of July at our family's cabin, and we knew there was a big storm coming in.  We were rushing to beat the downpour.  In our first location, it was sprinkling and we were all a little panicked!  Driving to our next location, the rain came! And it was a colossal storm! We quickly snapped a few before driving to our last location - the one we all wanted the most because of the stunning view.  Right when we pulled up, the rain stopped, the clouds parted and the sun shone through just for us!! I couldn't have planned it better if I called up mother nature myself and gave her an itinerary.  They are seriously my favorite photos to date.  Enjoy!

Paint & Powder - Stylized Shoot https://www.hayleybradshaw.com/blog/2014/8/paint-powder---stylized-shoot Sometimes I imagine pictures in my head - and if you've shot with me before, you've probably heard me say "Sometimes my ideas turn out amazing! And sometimes they're epic failures!"  I wish I could say that all of my ideas that cook in my brains turn out as these amazing, jaw dropping masterpieces... but they don't! So, I was nervous to try this idea I'd been dreaming about for a LONG time.  I could picture these piercing eyes through a whole bunch of paint and powder.  

So, I put out an APB for models on my instagram! And the response was amazing!! I had over 400 entries! And, really you guys, it made my job so incredibly hard!  My amazing friend, Kacee Payne (who is one bomb diggity make-up artist) agreed to help me with the make up to showcase my lovely models amazing eyes!!  She did amazing! I was blown away! AND then I splattered powder and paint all over their perfectly made-up faces :) I think she'll forgive me, though! 

So, without further ado - here are the FANTASTIC images from our creative shoot.  I don't think these could have turned out better if we tried! It was EXACTLY how I pictured it in my head!! ENJOY!!
