Fill in the blank!!! 🌿 Waiting for film scans is like... JK but seriously I've been checking my email like a crazy person and I cannot wait to see how they turned out from my week in Leavenworth and Wenatchee! Picture from @cascadeworkshop with @benjhaisch ❄️🙌🏻☕️
I think this might be my favorite picture of all time. This session is hitting the *new* blog later today. 🙌🏻 Photographer : @emmarosecompany Model : @isabella_dahl Assistant : @shaneandkathleen Florals : @elixircafe.floraldesign Gown : @labellesalonbridal Gown Designer : @pronovias - Nora Venue : Seabrook, WA Town Hall @weddingsatseabrook
Good morning, friends! 💕 I hope you all had a beautiful weekend, it's crazy to me how quickly each Monday comes back around! I woke up this morning to an email from my friend Rachel over at @intentionallydesigned letting me know that my blog feature is live! If you don't already follow Rachel, please do. She is full of inspiration and tips for all of us busy mamas trying to find balance and to live more intentionally. She's an incredible graphic designer who has played a huge role in my own journey. I'm grateful every day to have found Rachel back in 2015 when I had a dream of working for myself. 🙏🏻 I don't have all the answers and if I sat here and told you my life was perfectly organized I'd be lying to you. It's not. Sometimes it's messy and sometimes I'm unable to get anything done because I'm a mom first. I hope you enjoy the article and find it helpful when trying to find balance yourself as a creative business owner. We are in this together! The link to the post is in my profile. 🙌🏻🌿
My friends over at @styledboudoirevent are doing a fun giveaway today for two of these adorable necklaces! I'm hoping to win one! 🙌🏻💕🌿 @styledboudoirevent @samanthamcfarlen @bixbyandpine
I love the quiet moments in between during a session. 💕 I'm so excited for their upcoming wedding this fall!
I strategically planned the next two months so that I'm not taking any pictures before the start of wedding season. Come June the madness begins and I am SO excited! 🌿 I'll be busy with design projects but it's definitely going to be strange to not be out taking pictures. I'm busy putting together all the final workshop details and getting ready for some other exciting launches/announcements coming soon... 🙌🏻 If you're on my newsletter list you'll be the first to know! I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. ☕️💕 How cute is the shop at @elixircafe.floraldesign? I just love their space and spending time there with family and friends. It's definitely my go to spot in town for good coffee, food and atmosphere.
☕️ with my girl today. I ran sprints this AM with my friend and accountability partner @miaramos at the track. I haven't done that in 10 years. Lifestyle changes are hard but I truly believe pushing myself physically and mentally is only going to make me a stronger and happier mother, wife, friend, sister, daughter, and business owner. 🌿 I'm so grateful to be part of such an uplifting and encouraging community who have already helped me tremendously with little tips and tricks to get my life and health back on track. I'm truly grateful. Thank you, friends. 🙌🏻☕️
When I get an email back from my client... You nailed it. It's perfect. I do a happy dance because it is the best feeling when starting a project to know my client and I are on the exact same page with the concepts and overall aesthetic. I cannot wait to bring her brand to life with the help of this mood board. I pulled inspirational images from Pinterest and here on IG from photographers I follow and admire! 🙌🏻🌿 I cannot wait to get started on her logo concepts this weekend.
I'm on day three of no sugar, bad carbs or dairy. Ahhhh I know it's so early but this is the most motivated I've been at the computer in a few weeks feeling energized and excited. I never thought I could go even a day without my cheese or creamer haha but here I go, proving myself wrong one day at a time! I know it's still so early but I also feel like in order for me to be successful in a lifestyle change I need to share my journey! I won't be posting it much here on my main thread but I will be taking you behind the scenes on my IG story if you care to follow along! 🙌🏻 I didn't measure or weigh myself but there is a pair of pants sitting on the top shelf that have been looming over me for a long time. It's my goal by the end of 30 days (and beyond) to fit in those jeans again. It's also my goal to put clothes on and feel more confident in how they look on me. Part of my wake up call to get my health back has been trying on anything and everything and just not feeling like I look good. It's time to change all that! 🌿☕️ The biggest craving I am having right now is chocolate... my cocoa powder will be here tomorrow and I cannot wait to make some banana chocolate smoothies to curve it. 💕 How else do you like to curve cravings for sugars/sweets?
I edited three sessions tonight 🙌🏻 Sometimes I just get in a groove and gotta run with it. I could keep working but calling it quits at a decent hour because I have my amazing babysitter here for the next two days to help me get caught up with business! Time to respond to emails, design projects for some seriously amazing clients and tackle my taxes 🙈 I meant to have those done like two months ago. Goodnight, world! I hope you had an amazing Wednesday and that tomorrow is even more amazing. 🙏🏻🌿
