2018: A year of priddysweet giving

Monday, January 8th, 2018


I have been brewing this for a little while and trying to figure out how to make it a reality. Over the Christmas holiday it was made clear to me that my mission for 2018 is to give. I am being called to give BOLDLY… While this causes a bit of uncertainty (will I be able to give enough?), i am seeking true freedom:: freedom to follow, freedom to fail, freedom to live abundantly by living as I am called. Therefore, I pledge to give 50% of every profit that comes in through my business in 2018. This is where I will need your help in a few ways:

1) Please hire me! :) The more we work, the more we can give.

2) Please offer your suggestions of where you would love to see the money go.

3) Please pass this along to your friends!

Every 3 months I will prayerfully choose a worthy cause or two in need of extra funds and donate 50% of priddysweet’s profits to that cause. And to make what I do more accessible, I am streamlining the back end of the sessions, offering digitals and reducing the costs of several types of sessions. I will also hopefully be offering more mini sessions (and not just on a single day). I am truly looking forward to this year and hope to see your faces through my lenses. LETS DO THIS THING! Stay tuned for updates on new sessions! And then plan to get your make up on and your hair-DID! xoxo

Love with Actions Charity Event

Monday, February 18th, 2013

It is my honor and pleasure to support such an great cause as this. I’m here to announce our very first “event” and its taking place at our itty bitty temporary studio space here in East Nashville. On March 9, 2013, we will be doing a day of photoshoots— from 9am to 3pm (or later if we fill it up) with 100% of the proceeds benefiting Thisbe & Noah Scott Foundation. We’re doing 15 minute sessions with a suggested donation of $25. As my thank you to you, we will include (1) complimentary 4×6 (to be chosen via online proofing) and if you want more—each additional $10 you donate to the foundation, Priddysweet will gift you another (1) 4×6 print! I don’t have to tell you that this is a steal you guys, so eat it up and support a great cause!!! Other print sizes will be available at a 20% discount as well.

The Thisbe and Noah Scott Foundation, Inc. (TNSF) was created by Laurian and John Scott after they lost their 2 young children, Thisbe and Noah, to a neuromuscular disease called BVVL. The mission of TNSF is to promote research, awareness and support for families affected by pediatric neuromuscular diseases.

Neuromuscular diseases are a group of diseases that impair the peripheral nervous system (i.e., muscles and nerves), which means the brain can no longer tell the body to move. As a result, all muscles in the body — arms, legs, fingers, eyelids, muscles used for breathing, swallowing and eating — atrophy or die. Examples of neuromuscular diseases include muscular dystrophy, spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) and ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease).

In just a few short years, TNSF has made amazing strides in their fight to eliminate these cruel diseases. Please visit their website at to learn more.

A bit overwhelmed is nothing new

Monday, February 4th, 2013

You guys didn’t know this but apparently I traded in my “stay at home mom/ business owner” job to drive a big yellow bus. (Ok, it’s not yellow. But it should be). Introducing Elizabeth Priddy, Taxi-mom of the century.

Am I cut out for this? Hardly. In fact, I often wonder how in the world I let myself get to this place. I have the misfortune of being one who is easily overwhelmed (can thank ADHD for that) and while I’m usually able to manage alright, lately with the pending household move, I’ve let more of my spinning plates fall to the ground.

This blog is one of them.
(Writing my childrens’ “thank you notes” from their December birthday party is another)

I actually LOVE to write out all my thoughts and share them with the world, I just don’t feel like there is any time to do it. Am I alone here? I thought as my children got older they’d naturally be more independent and I’d have more time, right? WRONG.

Its a whirlwind.




What I’m taking as my “take home nugget” of life here is that all those wiser ladies are right (you know exactly who I’m talking about too):: We will never have “enough time.” We will never have “enough energy/motivation.” We will never be as impeccably organized as Martha Stewart leads us to believe she is (well, not until we have that level of hired help, I’m sure)! We’re all just doing our best here…putting one foot in front of the other… sometimes tears streaming before we even leave the house, sometimes the tears being our own. God doesn’t tell us it will be easy. I understand that. (Some days I even respect it). On days when I’m weary of breaking up the fights in the back seat, making a second sandwich because the dog ate it, stressing about the finances of building new and living at home, worrying I’m not “contributing enough” (will I ever be enough?), and WHY is my heart flip flopping out of my chest?…I stop and take a deep breath. At the end of the day, it is all going to be ok. It is.

And I cling to the notion in my heart that we won’t be given more than we can handle. But sometimes I wonder, isn’t it completely necessary for God to give us more than we can handle? Lest I think I really CAN do this myself?

So, (deep sigh)

Gift #1418: taxi-mom status, #1419 feeling overwhelmed… #1421: being reminded that I “cannot.”

Lord, thank you for reminding us that we “cannot” when we think we’ve got it all together.
