Q1 + Q2: Onward and Upward

It’s not officially summertime yet, but the Florida heat says otherwise. Before I go outside and do a rain dance, I wanted to update the Jolley Goods blog with some fresh content from Q1 and Q2 of 2019! If you make it all the way to the end of this post, you’ll also find news about this past season in coaching, an H2H Social update, and some photos from an event I was able to help out with in May for Pet Pal Animal Shelter!

Okay, you know the drill! Here are my favorite work samples from the past few months…

2018-2019 Soccer Season

I started with this squad in mid-2017, so this past year marked our second season together. The team (U15 when we started) had been formed from a few different groups of players, so I preached the importance of chemistry from the get-go.

Our first season together, the team came in second to last place in their division and didn’t make it through the first round of Commissioner’s Cup play (the annual, regional/state competition that we work all season for).

This year – through extra training sessions and a ton of team bonding – the tides changed drastically from the first season to this one. The team went nearly undefeated in their division (only losing two matches) and placed second in Commissioner’s Cup regional play before advancing to the state final four where they lost in the semi-finals.

It was awesome to work with such a special group of kids.

H2H Social Update

Since 2016, I’ve been dedicated to growing the H2H Social brand as a progressive marketing option for businesses. The goal was not to have the biggest client list, but to create a network of brands who can enjoy the benefits of an in-house social media specialist without the big agency pricepoint.

I’m happy to announce that in Q1 of 2019, I started partnering with video pro, Christina Rosetti. She has become an integral part of what H2H Social offers, and I am so excited about the future!

Check out what we’ve whipped up so far via the H2H Social Vimeo page. And, as always, if you need help with social media, send us an email: Hello@H2H.social

Pet Pal’s Puppy Love Event

Last, but certainly not least, I had the (super amazing) opportunity to volunteer for Pet Pal’s annual benefit called “Puppy Love.” As a “puppy pimper,” I had a sincerely difficult job to do (that’s sarcasm, by the way). Walking around with puppies and accepting donations for the shelter was seriously a privilege and I am hopeful I’ll get the chance to do it again next year!

2018 was a great year – full of growth, opportunities, and experiences I’ll be forever grateful for. Before I make a pretty exciting announcement regarding 2019 and the future of H2H Social (and me), let’s round out this great year with some of the final [branded content] touches from Q4.

MADE Coffee, Personality Portraits, and Branded Content to Boot!

Okay, so, the goal at the start of 2018 was to post more often with less content. Aaaaaand, it’s April already. To bring these “Jolley Goods” up to speed, I’ve sifted through the first quarter of content and snagged some favorites.

Here’ what I’ve been up to so far in 2018:

MADE Coffee

An added bonus to MADE this month is that their long-awaited website is live and beautiful! I was stoked to contribute my imagery to the project, and you can see it throughout (click away)! Here are some screenshots- just click on either of them to visit the new MADE Coffee website!

Audrey Lane Collection

I have also been creating blog content for the Audrey Lane Journal. Here are some of my favorite posts as of late. Just click on one of the images to read that particular blog!

The soccer club I coach at recently announced a new professional partnership with Florida Tropics SC. We are amidst a rebrand of the site and other marketing materials, but I was able to create a fresh, new blog called “The Boot Room.” Check it out:

One Day Tampa Bay: I Got the Cover!

Back in September I participated in a community-wide photography project called “One Day Tampa Bay (ODTB).” Hosted by the Morean Arts Center, ODTB brought in more than 50 local photographers to document a full 24-hour day around the bay. Each photographer submitted their top 8 photos to be juried for a number of different showcase opportunities.

On the day the event took place, I was on my out of town for soccer. I only had about 45 minutes to shoot, and it was during the pre-sunrise/dawn time frame. With that in mind, I decided to document “The Calm Before the Storm” at one of my all-time favorite spots, Central Coffee Shoppe. After that, I headed to Northshore Park in hopes of an epic sunrise.

Lucky me, I was ecstatic to have an image from the coffee shop portion chosen for the juried exhibition during the Morean Arts Center’s holiday show. (please pardon my awkwardness as I am used to being behind the lens) 😀

And more recently, one of my submissions from the sunrise was selected to be the cover for the ODTB coffee table book!

All of the funds raised from the sale of these books goes directly back into the arts community, here in St. Pete! If you’d like to snag one, you can do it here!

Closing Out 2017

Looking back on the last 365 days brings one word to mind: wow. Near the end of 2016 I wondered if my corporate burnout would ever go away. I was uninspired, I lacked motivation, and overall, it was just a really tough time for me creatively.

2017 is proof that if you want something bad enough, the work ethic comes naturally. I’ve worked harder than I’ve ever worked before. Throughout the hard work, my creativity began to flicker again, and it feels like I’ve finally got my groove back.

During 2017 my company, H2H Social, tripled in size, I returned to coaching club soccer, and I got insanely lucky with new friendships.

So, here are some of the content highlights from September through the end of 2017. To my new friends, old ones, clients, and family – I’m lucky to know you and to be a part of your tribe. Thank you. I look forward to seeing what we come up with in 2018 🙂
