As seen on...
So fun to meet @live_byfaith7 & her hubby tonight for @alisamarie9 's hands-on coaching session! These two just celebrated their first wedding anniversary and are both social workers-- seriously amazing and perfect models for Alisa and I to play with posing, styling, backlighting and directing! We even saw a dolphin before sunset 😍 Ended the night with @sprinklescupcakes + my 45 minute edit-a-session walkthrough (and lots of Layla dog kisses). So grateful for nights like this to do so many things I love with great people! 🎉💛 #laurafootephoto #laurafootespeaks
Editing this commercial shoot for the @messymadesigns 2017 line like 🙌🏻😎🎉💃🎧🤰🏼👟! So much love for my bust a move gal, @kristenostow, the creative genius behind this line + @southerndoe! Also, she sent me this shirt as a gift after last year's shoot & I've been saving it. Because clearly it's perfect for life right now (baby Mac coming? K graduating? Ok sure! 😂) aaaaaaaand it meets the "only wearing soft things" requirement of the 3rd trimester 💕 So grateful to partner with businesses like this- it's the heart of my love for this work!! #laurafootebranding #workingmamas
Gooooooood morning, last week of March! I'm almost 100% better and so excited to be getting back to my beloved @ymca mixed in with a busy work week! Also, our temps are back in the 80s here in FL so my break from water aerobics is over, too! Yayyyyy 😂👵🏻🙈 How is your week looking? 🌴💛🙌🏻🎉🏃♀️P.S. Loved meeting this little sweetie yesterday for her 1st birthday party. Families are carving a special place in my heart in this new season for my own family! Plus her @riflepaperco wall was goalzzzzz 💕#laurafootephoto
You've gone on a lot of adventures already, little Mac, and these last 8 weeks are going to be full! Thank ya Jesus for helping us get to the other side of this awful virus! Today we ventured around our city to lots of places you'll frequent AND celebrated your bestie, baby Fitz (@gritsandgravy), who is due just 3 days after you 🎉! Now daddy is watching his KU Jayhawks tear up the court and I'm pretty sure you're a chill, not so sporty girl like you're mama 😂 Love you, and that you'll be born in spring so we can both wear allllllllllll the floral 💕 P.S. Pregnancy confidence booster-- buy a few pieces you can "grow" into early on. I've had this dress since October but could finally wear it today and it made me feel good despite the rapid inflation happening these days 🙈🙌🏻 #footesintheheights #joythatisfull #32weeks
When I was studying marriage and family therapy as a single, 20 year old, I worried no couple would ever take me seriously. When we lived in our tiny house, I wondered if we had taken a step back having traded our life of "matching married furniture" for a cross country move and Goodwill finds. When I left USF I questioned if I could really do this full time and when I found out I was pregnant? I was certain no one would book me anymore.
Call me insecure, crazy or irrational but whew, every season of my 20s has certainly made me question. While I'm unashamedly excited to be in my last year pre-30, I'm also grateful for all the change my heart has been through these past few months. Embrace this season, friend. For better or for worse, it's the only one you'll get quite like it and it won't last forever--thoughts as I turned out the lights on this little office/nursery tonight 💕 #messyheartmusings #lfpbts #ourcornerlot
Some nights there's a plan but for every other night, there's takeout pizza, #amIright? 😍🍕 P.S. I asked J if he wanted to pay for delivery or get the warm 🍪 & carryout. He picked the cookie 🙌🏻🎉 #winning
Since leaving my higher ed career I've had the best time expanding the coaching side of my business to be so much more than hands-on/technical teaching. Because the truth is if you don't know yourself *really* well that beautiful brand you're creating, website you're building, client experience you're tailoring? It will all feel like a shirt that just doesn't quite fit right, and it will be noticeable. Life's too short for weird shirts, amen?
Proud of this beaut, @emilyknuthphoto, for the workflow + heart work we did a few weeks ago (got her post-session process from 2-3 hours to 45 minutes!), can't wait to chat Myers-Briggs + business identity with @em_solberg tomorrow, and shoot with @alisamarie9 next week! These women are fierce, brave, smart and committed to running business that reflect that. I admire them a ton to say the least 💛
If you've been thinking about mentoring/coaching for small business work of any kind the first step with me is a complimentary phone call where you talk, I listen and together we figure out next steps! You can grab a time to chat at the link in my profile 🙌🏻 #laurafootespeaks
Ok, time to start this week on a fun note, shall we?! Renaming this first-day-of-spring Monday to "a #dayofpresents" and opening one gift every hour on instastories from @alongcameabox's brand new bride box! My gift giving (but bad at picking gifts 🙈) heart is in love with these gorgeous boxes, curated for every occasion + price point and even better? Each item comes with a maker card, telling the story and sharing the face of the artist behind it! Small biz 💕 at its best!
Join in with the fun today gift by gift starting at 9am (🙌🏻 for boomerang so y'all don't have to hear me cough 😬), support Kristen and her awesome vision by following their gorg feed, and click the link in my profile to enter to win a box of your own! YAS! Oh, and LAURAFOOTE gets you $10 off any box (birthday, relax- so many fun ones!) you order in the next month, too! HAPPY #adayofpresents!! Share a fav gift you've received below!!👇🏻 🎉💕🎁🍾 #noMondayhere
Grateful to have married a guy who doesn't consider his spring break a bust because his pregnant wife gets stuck in bed the entire week with the worst cold + flu bug. Instead, he makes her all the tea, encourages naps, runs steam showers, sneaks her donuts & just lays beside her. Mac, we are so lucky to have our J and K, take note. Nice guys are the only ones worth waiting for 💛 #raisinggirls #footesintheheights #31weeks #ourcornerlot
