It’s Official, This Girl is a Boss!

All of my personal projects (my blog, Youtube channel and style archive) have been on hold for the last couple of weeks but for a good reason. After lots of prep, I’ve finally started…

Gernelle Nelson LLC is open for business!


Cue the celebration music and bust a move my friends! You’re now reading the blog of DFW’s newest women & wedding photographer! So much has happened since I last wrote. I’ve gotten my state tax permit, hired an accountant, opened a business bank account and begun to update my portfolio with portraits of women in my home studio. Oh yea, my husband and I converted our second bedroom into a home studio, surprise! I’ve never felt so energized about my work before. I’ve been collaborating with ladies and working on my website in all of my spare time. I plan to start advertising proactively next month, which I’ll consider my grand opening!

Faith requires action and courage, not just belief. I now know what it means to believe in myself in this area of my life and to step out on faith. I’m working on creating a secondary Youtube channel that focuses on my journey as an entrepreneur but that is still in the planning stages right now. I still need to create my studio policies and lock down my contracts but I have no doubt that I’ll have that secured soon. Just waiting for my business debit card to land in my mailbox! Before I go, here are a few new images that I created in my home studio thus far. Please let me know what you think of my work!

Have courage,
