When your couple just starts out with laughing on their own, you know it’s going to be a perfect session!
Believe it or not, sometimes it’s difficult for me to find just the “right” words. Today I’m being honest, not only for myself, but because I think sometimes that’s what’s lacking in our society. It’s easy to look around at our perfectly curated grid or Facebook pages and think, “well, shit. They really have it together.” I’m here to tell you, it’s not always that way. I had a complete 100% meltdown yesterday because I feel like I can’t get my own shit together most days. I constantly feel like I’m taking steps backwards and never forwards. Maybe that’s because I’ve asked for change and this is the beginning or maybe it’s something completely different. I’m not sure in the slightest and it all caught up. Months of self doubt and insecurity. If you would have asked me yesterday if I was ready to give up my business, there’s a good chance that I may would have told you yes, through all of my crocodile tears. Today, I’m thankful for friends who get me and don’t feel the need to tell me it’ll be okay or any of that, because we all know one way or another it will, but they told me I can get angry or cry or do what I need to. I’m thankful for friends who immediately respond with who do I need to take out? They don’t demand an explanation but rather accept me for who I am, crazy and all. But today, no matter if I’m still in a funk, I refuse to cry. I’m not going to let the struggle of yesterday completely destroy today...plus I put on makeup, and I do not feel like a redo. The point is, it’s okay to be honest with people, because I feel at the end of the day, if we’re real with one another, they’ll feel more connected to us and just maybe we won’t be so hard on ourselves. It’s okay to struggle, it’s part of this process called life. I’m proud to be perfectly imperfect, it’s what makes me human.
I don’t normally post twice in a day...but when Insta is down and doesn’t post your image for like 18 hours, then this is what you get!! Honestly though, I’m okay with it. I mean, you can’t be mad at seeing two different beautiful couples back to back. And if you are, then we’re not friends.
I love a good ole fashioned intimate beach wedding! There’s nothing wrong with keeping it simple and about you two!!
I just feel like we need a little sparkle around here! One thing I really love to do is to team up with one of my favorite vendors @omlbridal and shoot new dresses!! Ashlund nailed it per usual and showed off this gorgeous @sherrihill gown! If anyone wants to get a dress like this and say take photos in front of a waterfall, I’d be down. Just sayin!
Oregon is so freaking gorgeous and I absolutely cannot wait to get back this summer and visit my sweet friends! Sending warm vibes your way, Oregon!!
Probably the most elegant pregnancy announcement in the history of ever!! Head on over to the BLOG to see more of this freaking amazing session!!
Remember that one time it snowed in Florida?! No, then you must have not been at this amazing wedding! The @theimperialproductions team was serving up straight magic. Head on over to the Blog to see more from this perfect day!!
These two - gah!! They’re perfect. The way they look at each other gets me every time!!
Aside from weddings, Seniors are one of my favorite things to photograph! I love seeing how each Senior is completely different in personality and style and making sure we capture what makes them unique during their session! For those 2019 Seniors who still need to take their Senior Portraits, there’s still time!!
