“Come on, Mom, you’re not really gonna make me wear this hat... are you?!” Today marks TEN months with this little nugget (how!!) and approximately ten cumulative hours of him ripping cute hats off his head the first chance he gets 😂 Celebrating with ten of my favorite moments on my stories!! I love you, Beckett Harry Demos!
The wonder 😭💛
Making this cozy, stay-inside-season my favorite ever 💛
He asked her to be his girlfriend. On the school bus. IN SECOND GRADE (!!) Sweet seven-year-old Caroline didn’t waste time answering, “No way.” 😂 He spent of the rest of the bus ride feeling crushed, but recovered by recess. They went back to being best friends. They spent the rest of their childhood building forts together in the woods that separated their families’ backyards. Sledding on snow days, playing together in a land of make-believe, celebrating birthdays and taking family vacations together. Even when his family moved across the country in 7th grade, they continued to be best friends. Their families traveled together. They continued to grow up exploring the world together. Their whole relationship was one of adventures. And, finally, two years after they graduated college, he asked her that same question from second grade one more time. Spoiler alert: she didn’t say no :) When Caroline and Kevin brought their their “Up” inspired Adventure Book to our client meeting, and we flipped through pages upon pages of their adventures that started when they were only seven years old, we *knew* we had to do an Up-inspired engagement. These two give Carl and Ellie a run for their money! When we photograph their wedding this spring, they will be celebrating TWENTY YEARS of being best friends (!!) Their engagement shoot was way too much fun and we couldn’t possibly narrow down our favorites! Luckily that’s what blogs are for :) A brand new one is *up* tonight!! #amyandjordancouple #ajbride
The only thing I love more than this dreamy light is the fact that I DIDN’T TAKE THIS (!!) Kayla enrolled in all three of our online courses LAST YEAR and you have to swipe to see her work before and after! The thing I love most, though, is what you can’t see in these photos. Kayla is married with two little boys, and last year she was working a full time day job. Her boys spent a lot of time with a babysitter and she wished she could spend more time with them. She loved photography but didn’t see it as a sustainable way to make money. She felt so awkward trying to pose people. She didn’t understand how to find good light. It used to take her 20 hours to edit one portrait session. After implementing what she learned in our courses, her work transformed. She’s so proud of her images, her turnaround time is lightning fast, her prices have skyrocketed and she was able to QUIT her day job! She told us that now she gets to spend as much time with her boys as she wants, and she really notices a difference in her oldest son because they get such great quality time together now 😭💛 Oh man. It’s stories like this. THIS is why we do what we do! 😭💛 If you’ve been eyeing one of our courses, now is the time! Kayla never could’ve imagined this could be her story! What will YOUR story be?! The link is in my profile! And can we please give it up for @kayladenae?! SO PROUD OF YOU GIRL!!! 🙌🏻
Is it too early to start counting my blessings for next Thanksgiving? 😭💛
Turns out wild turkeys CAN fly :) Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!
I could just *gobble* him up :) #firstthanksgiving
Okay, is it just us or is she Allie from The Notebook?! She said NOBODY has ever said that to her before!! We couldn’t stop talking about it during their session. If you’re a bird, I’m a bird :) Can’t wait to share more from our newest engagement!! #ajbride #amyandjordancouple
