Figuring it all out with Julie Michaelsen Photographer & Coach

Woop! The next interview in my Gin and Magic YouTube series championing strong creative women is here! Straight from my home to your eyes + ears, this week featuring the lovely Julie Michaelsen, fine art luxury wedding photographer and business coach for introvert photographers.

When Julie, possibly one of the sweetest people I’ve met in the wedding industry and possibly my life, agreed to come on Gin and Magic I knew it was a big deal for her because she is a (her words) ‘classic introvert’ by nature and video is a lot for even the most confident of sorts! But I am so so grateful she came along and shared her wisdom because I love her openness, her transparency – she is an inspiration even though she may not see herself as one, because she’s doing it all and loving life in such an empowering way that suits her.

In our chat, we talk about the power of Pinterest, a very special Les Miserables moment, and learning from her mistakes and of course, figuring it all out.

With each interview I feature on Gin & Magic I am reminded of why I started this channel. To find out how others ‘do it’, how women are making their lives work, how they grow their businesses and how they enjoy life. Chatting to Julie was no exception.

Enjoy and please don’t forget to hit like + subscribe if you enjoy the Gin & Magic videos 🙂

Thanks so much, Julie, you were brilliant!
