Oh friends, two #fridayintroductions post back to back?! Here's a little more about me! I'm an only child. I was so awesome my parents didn't feel the need to duplicate me! Oh, and I think I'm funny! I love animals, but especially the pups! I have two, Simba and Winston, and am totally the person who thinks my dogs are the best...even though we know they're all great! I played the Saxophone for several years growing up and actually still own it. Every now and again I think about picking it up, but haven't. And I would love to be able to learn guitar or piano! I'm a human jukebox and somehow know so many songs but cannot remember what I did yesterday. I love Starbucks or our local establishment Elliano's, but do not like coffee from home. I love 80's movies and especially love quoting the French dinner scene from Better Off Dead. It's a must watch! Cheers to the weekend!! Make it a good one!!
One of my favorite photographers, @marymarantz has this saying of Slow Growth = Strong Roots. In a hustle, bustle time society, it's not always the easiest to live by these words. We're accustomed to instantaneous outcomes and getting things pretty darn fast. However, sometimes we have to be reminded that Rome wasn't built in a day. And by we, I mean, I. In my career and personal life, I find it easy to compare my journey to others highlight reels. It's not fair and it's not worth it. This statement really resonates with me [even though I have to daily remind myself] because it's the determination and hard work that really help define us. It's not about flying straight to the top without a solid foundation, because if you didn't take the time to properly grow, then your roots will be shallow and weak. So I say all of this say, stay strong and hold tight during the hard times. Grow your roots strong so that you may endure all of the trials that may come your way and in the end, bloom tall, proud and beautiful!
Dominique gracefully made her way down the aisle of the Baughman Center toward her betrothed. All eyes were fixed on her while the Jurassic Park score softly played in the background. Once she was at the end of the aisle, face to face with Andrew, she looked at him and mouthed I love you to him. A secret and special moment that no other guest was able to witness, but thankfully I was present in the exact moment. Though this moment took place nine months ago, it's still fresh to me because of the authenticity of the day. I know we're used to seeing all of the perfectly curated portraits around social media, but sometimes it's more important to slow down and share the little things that matter most.
I believe in love. All parts of it. The messy to the glamorous and everything in between. Because let's face, love isn't always perfect. I believe in undeniable joy and laughter. Laughter really is the best medicine for the soul. I believe in being authentic and genuine. We're all unique and should embrace who we are rather than attempting to fit into others molds of who they think we should be. No truer statement than Comparison is the thief of joy. I believe that sometimes the best answers come from random singing or movie quotes. So, don't stop believing. I believe in adventures and making memories. We only have one go at this crazy thing called life, so I fully believe in making the most of it and seeing and eating all the things! I believe actions always speak louder than words and that sometimes it's a must to put feet on our declarations. I believe that champagne is always a good idea. It's the perfect celebration spirit, breakfast addition or for just hanging around with your friends.
I know you've seen this image recently, but honestly it deserves another share. I still remember this exact moment. As I sit here and relive it, my heart kicks a little harder and my eyes feel like they're about to well up with tears. I remember Autumn telling me that she wanted to have a first touch, privately with Michael. A chance to read a special prayer to one another that they each had written. When I entered this moment with them, I had no idea the affect that it would have on me. As I listened to the words expressed, I couldn't help but be moved to tears. These are the real moments that I want to live in and relish on every wedding day. At the end of the day, I don't want to be known for what my images may look like, but how they make you feel when you look at them. Whether it's all smiles or just a quiet, humbling moment. Emotions and being real are what makes us and our life unique and I love being a part of that!
