One of the biggest things I accomplished this summer was as a wedding photographer. I worked with a team of vendors to throw a wedding for these two spectacular guys in Denver's PRIDE Parade. On an actual float. It was spectacular and I'm so proud of what we accomplished and lucky I can count these two as family now and not just clients or friends. I think the whole even is just proof that if you ever have a wild idea you should just go for it. This was crazy and I had no idea how it would turn out, but it couldn't have been more perfect. If something is inspiring you right now, or you are itching to try something fantastic, start. Start now!! #rockyourweird 📷: @carrieswails
You are magic, own that shit. This is the message to myself this summer. You know it's been very quiet around here. I've accomplished some amazing things this summer, like throwing a wedding in the #denverprideparade. The first #pridewedding on a float. I photographed it and helped a team of vendors pay for and give an amazing couple this wedding. It was pretty epic. I've also been going through a storm this summer as well with the death of not just one but two grandparents close together. I can't deny it's been pretty though. But seeing my grandpa go only 29 days after my grandma shows you what a great lifetime of love and 65 years of marriage should look like too. So let's just say it's been tough, but I've learned a lot and I am grateful for that. I put aside some things to focus on the things that mattered most during this time. I appreciate all the messages sent checking in on me, the texts, phone calls and those who just listened to me talk. I love you! But now I'm ready to refocus and get the Fall started with some renewed energy and perspective! #rockyourweird
Love this from @spellandtell. I think I need it on my wall. It's a good reminder for a Monday morning! 💜 #spellandtell #rockyourweird #beyou #loveyourself
We moved to a new house and a new place last year and this is our first Spring in the new house. It's also the first time we have owned land, so maybe I've gone gardening crazy. We turned a yard that was mostly weeds into a huge veggie garden, tons of flowers and more. Im proud of us. But for real someone tell me the secret to getting your roses established well. Mine are going, but they are so slow! Maybe it's the snow we had AFTER Mothers Day that threw them off. 😂🌱🌿🌹🌷🌸🌺 #rockyourweird #gardener #greenthumb #roses #gardening #gardenlife
Initially, when I said I was doing a little website upgrading I intended on the updates to be pretty basic, but then I opened up @showit.co and started playing around a little too much with one of the templates from @labapproved and voila...the new website should be launching soon. Everything has to be transferred and moved over, but here's a sneak peek! Also, I really need you all to head over to @stompsoftware this week because I'll be doing an Instagram takeover with a live Q&A on Thursday that should be totally different from my usual. I'm super excited about it! Make sure you're following along so you don't miss a beat! #rockyourweird #madeinthelab #websitedesign #showiteer #showit5 #colorful #stompsoftware
I finished everything on my todo list today. That might seem like nothing to some people, but sometimes I think being a creative can be extra hard in terms of making sure we focus on the priorities and get shit done. Especially when all we want to do it sit in the garden with coffee or wine. Battling that distraction majorly lately!
My friend @knowyourbeautifulkyb has an amazing message for women about knowing what your own beautiful is. She posted this recently and I had to repost and share. Don't apologize for being amazing!! #knowyourbeautiful #rockyourweird #powerful #neverapologize
When it's #Monday, you are a unicorn, and you have blisters on your thumbs from kicking your garden's ass all weekend...only #unicorn bandaids will do! Hope everyone is starting the last week of #April with a good Monday. I've got sore muscles, owies, and a sunburned lip, but I'm so excited about my veggie garden!
It's just a rainbow kind of afternoon! I hope everyone is having an amazing week with good Spring weather! We finally ate dinner on the patio yesterday - homemade pizza on the grill!
