#LevelingUp is about improving, not impressing; showing up for yourself so that you can get & do better.  It all starts with a change in thought, a shift in mindset, and a little bit of bravery.

Challenge yourself by asking:

✅What does the next level look like?

✅What big step needs to be taken to begin the walk down that path?

✅Is the idea of success more exciting than the fear of the unknown?

✅What is holding me back?

You don’t always need an iron clad plan.  Sometimes you just need to breathe, let go, trust your abilities, and see what happens.  You might just be surprised…

When Life Gives you Lemons… Blow Some Bubbles https://www.mmgpics.com/blog/2019/4/when-life-gives-you-lemons-blow-some-bubbles Hi, I’m Angie and I’m my families planner! 


Lord knows that I have a gazillion tools I use to stay organized. I mean, if I’m being honest… I have about 10 different notebooks, a whiteboard, a vision board, and a Trello Account, with multiple boards. It’s real y’all! On top of that, I’m consistently talking about making those plans come to fruition. 

I might be a little obsessive (😳😳😳) BUT even more than that I understand that organizing your thoughts and planning out your goals is one of the best methods for manifesting your dreams. 

However, “what happens to a dream deffered?” Or when life isn’t going like you’ve intended in your perfect little plan? 

Well, over here at M. Media Group we: 

  1. Harlem Shake It Off 💃🏾🕺🏾
  2. Learn our Lessons 📖✍🏾
  3. Make Lemonade 🍋🐝
  4. Pick up our Plan & Keep Moving Forward - 📈


Oh and in-between those steps, why not Blow Some Bubbles 🌬🌬🌬

Don't Forget the Hashtag https://www.mmgpics.com/blog/2019/3/dont-forget-the-hashtag We have always been the couple at every event with cameras. We have believed that life’s special moments deserve to be captured in time.

Consistently, we would hear: 

✅Angie, you’re really good at this! 

✅Jonel, your photos are super creative!

✅You two should really start a business! 


Business had never been our focus we just loved the idea of preserving moments that can be relived through your pictures. 

But as the the saying goes… Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life!

Photography is certainly something we loved but the idea of starting an actual company to offer our services seemed so scary.


We asked ourselves: 

  • Babe, should we really start a business❓

  • How will we promote our business❓ 

  • How will we find clients❓


We went through the motions over here in the Matthews household! We worked through our thoughts, fears, and reservations and on February 20, 2019 we officially opened the doors to M. Media Group, LLC! 

On the day we launched we received an email from Jelisa Smith, a Life & Business Coach (http://www.jelisasmithcoaching.com/) looking for a photographer to help her achieve her vision of curating content for her brand.  

Words can’t express how excited we were that on our launch day we received our first inquiry via social media! 

It was super validating that she found us through a #hashtag, cementing that if you have faith and believe in the process  you can be successful at anything you put effort into!  

It was also a reminder to continue to harness the power of #hashtags to #FinesseTheGram!
