So grateful for the outpouring of love for our newest addition we announced this past weekend! Now I just wish I could eat mashed potatoes & gravy (the BEST part of the Thanksgiving meal amiright??) & shoot in this gorgeous tree covered field all day! Happy Tuesday friends!
We’ve got our own little turkey in the oven this year! Coming June 2018!
I realized while sitting here editing, that I HAVE to give a HUGE s/o to @amy_demos & @jordan_demos for their amazing talk @ #showitunited2017 because it made me think about starting to stack my schedule. Implementing that this week has provided so much extra time for me to get things done I otherwise just wouldn’t have had time for! This week all my shoot’s/meetings were combined into 2 days & I’ve had 4 full days @ home giving me more time to edit, catch up on some reading (& laundry 😉) & spend more time with the people I love. Isn’t that what’s it’s all about? This kind of freedom never felt so good!
My Tuesday’s always feel more like Monday’s, anyone else? So here’s a little pretty for ya! I haven’t shared any peeks from this fun esesh but it has been 1 of my favorites this fall! Tyler & Chelsey fell SO easily into posing & looked so in love I barely had to direct them at all! Modeling might be in their future 😉
We heard a lot before we were married that the 1st year is the hardest. Well ladies & gentlemen, I’m here to tell you that isn’t the case, or @ least it doesn’t have to be. By God’s grace this has been the best year to date & I️ am so grateful for this man. Want to know why it was the best year? Not because it was without bumps, not because we didn’t fight. But because while I’m a yeller, he responds calmly & patiently. When I️ meltdown, he picks me up & dusts me off. When I’m being emotional, he is steady. When I’m complacent, he shows me the importance of being passionate & motivated about things that matter. I️ did not marry a perfect man, but in the words of one of my favorite shows, “he was pretty damn close”. Thank you Jesus for this amazing man! Happy 1 year @thehistorical_now getting to know your heart, your mind, & everything that makes up my favorite person has been the greatest adventure. I️ love you ❤️
Hello weekend! It’s been a while since I’ve done a #fridayintroductions so I️ thought I’d let you know some things that have been going on recently! -Our little house project is coming along slowly but surely & we are itching to get in & start making it our own! But my hubby & thought it’d be a great idea to rip out the flooring & tear down a few walls during BOTH of our busiest seasons. So for now, I’m having fun piecing together design ideas & collecting a few goodies along the way (thank you new @magnolia @target line!!) -Normally a coffee addict (I️ used to work @ Starbucks, we’re a different kind of crazy breed!) I’ve recently been getting into more tea lately & trying out new kinds! Any favorite flavor/brand recommendations? -Finally got to wear a flannel shirt this past week & was GIDDY about it!!!..let’s not talk about the fact that I️ changed in the middle of the day, it was still cold in the morning & I’m SO excited about it!! I’ve been seeing a lot of new baby announcements recently so I️ know what many of you are grateful for 😉 but what are some things everyone’s grateful for/pumped about during this fall (dare I️ say almost Christmas?!) season?
After a long, amazing week at #showitunited2017 with some of my favorite people, my heart & brain are full to the brim! It’s time for some r&r&e (editing 😉) I️ am so grateful for all the speakers & people who put this together & traveled far to pour into our lives & invest in our business’. They take us out of our own little bubbles of crazy shooting schedules & editing in our pj’s for a hot second to remind us why we do this in the 1st place & that our business’ are not ALL there is. They encourage us to love our families, friends, & clients better. And lastly, every time I️ am around this group of people, I️ fall more in love with @showit.co the company I️ built my website through that is more like a family than a company. Till next year!
Getting ready to send off this GORGEOUS couples gallery & I still can’t get over this light, her dress & his uniform! Josh & Bekah’s was such a perfect day for so many reasons, the biggest (& my most favorite after each wedding I photograph) is that there’s a new Mr. & Mrs. getting to live their happily ever after!
