This is our life right now. The newborn is easy and the two year old is crazy.... and has an abnormally long tongue. 😂Evy’s sass has gotten her in time-out a lot recently. However, it’s amazing to me how such a feisty little girl can instantly switch to being a sweet, kissy big sister in a matter of seconds. We can get her to do anything if she gets to hold Baby Graham afterwards. ❤️ We are doing well.... and I’m not sleep deprived because of a newborn... he sleeps all night and I’m so grateful for that.... I’m sleep deprived because we had a baby three weeks before wedding season!!! But you know what, I’m only sleep deprived from Sunday to Tuesday. I stay up late and get the hard work done so that come Tuesday morning, I’m free from the stress of having so much work looming over me for the rest of the week. Not really having a maternity leave was something we knew would be our reality this time around when we decided to try for another baby. It’s hard to manage, especially while I’m cranking out the 48hr Workflow (we teach this in our Consistency Course!)... but we have had the most amazing help and the motivation I have to get it done stems from the relief I know I’ll feel when it’s over and I’m not behind! 🙌🏻 I may have slowed down shooting when I had babies.... but I can still turn weddings around in record time and I’m proud of myself!!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 @emilygeraldphotography thank you for images that truly capture our life right now!!!
I’m not one to post rectangular instas.... but sometimes you just HAVE TO! I love these sweet sisters!! As of Saturday, all of the Gill girls are married!! It was a gorgeous day in DC and our first @hayadamshotel wedding couldn’t have been more beautiful!! This whole wedding day is on the blog... complete with florals from one of my favorite florists, @sweetrootvillage, a Bentley, Gummy Bears, impressive DC views and a sneak peek from @tylerherrinton and @ashleyherrinton!!! #kjbrides #kjweddings

That moment when you’re exiting the church from family formals and you decide to stop the bridal party mid-walk for one last shot. This took 3 seconds... and I love it! I feel like so much of my job is to see what others don’t. To take random, seemingly insignificant moments and make them beautiful.... while also not slowing down the timeline. 😉#kjweddings #kjbrides
I mean... I’m seriously stressing over which ones to share on my feed. Not because I’m worried about my grid.... but because I LOVE SO MANY!!!! Amanda and Christian’s wedding hit the blog this morning and I’m not lying when I say that every part of their day was gorgeous!!!!!

Did you know that my brother and sister’s anniversaries are just days apart?! As much as I love Corey and Emy, this post is for Morgan and Joe! I remember praying for my siblings future spouses when I was a teenager and then young adult... I prayed they would find someone who would love them unconditionally, that they would love the Lord and that they would fit in well with our family. 😌God have our family all of those things when he gave us JoJo and Momo!!!! We love you guys. You made our family feel complete and I am so thankful you fell in love with my brother and sister!!! Happy Anniversaries!!!! Ps. Here are five of my favorite photos from each of their big days!!! (It’s been two years for Corey and Morgan and five years since Joe and Em were the first wedding at @bigspringva!!!
