Emily and Altamash were my last wedding of the year and took me back south. Georgia came through on the 60s temps that I don’t even know how to dress for anymore 🤷🏼♀️ But I’m not complaining because the day was BEAUTIFUL. They combined traditions, dietary preferences, and families and an extraordinary grace that I was so honored to capture 🥳🥳
In college, I went on a last minute trip to mountains with some friends, we hiked and picnicked to the top of a mountain. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My dad was sick by then and when I got home I was telling him about the trip and I complained about how sore I was from hike and marveled how walking up can take so much out of you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There was a pause of conversation and then he said softly, “At least you can hike a mountain.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I think about this comment all the time but especially when in the presence of mountains. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Some hard things are isolated and terrible. But more often then not, our complaints are layered over things we should actually be grateful for.
I’ve never been great at sharing. It’s been working progress because I certainly fight for self first. But if I share with anyone it’ll be him. Some of our favorite couples have a “time,” that they refer to. They share a gaze and smile softly and say something like, “It was just... nice.” They usually don’t have many stories or specifics only adjectives that could have been for restaurant you loved but forgot the name of. We’ve joke that we had low expectations for Omaha and we kinda did... I said, “I can do anything for a couple of years,” A LOT 😅But a few weeks in I realized we just might be building that “time.” Every sunset walk and falling asleep by 7:30 on the couch (because the sunset will be at whopping 4:59 today!). We are sharing something small and monumental that we won’t be able to adequately describe but we will cherish it.

So far the weather is what I’m asked about most... Yesterday was a high of 51, we’ve had some snow flurries but nothing has stuck. Sorry, for the pretty boring update 😂 I’ve been working through galleries from my Augusta sessions. Lucy is the most beautiful baby, between the eyes, lips, and cheeks 😍 I LOVED meeting her again!
🤞🏼 some of these colors will still be here when I get back! I still have a few Augusta session days open in the next week, message me if you’re interested!
We’ve got a couple rainy days ahead and I’m parked in front of my computer and editing some real estate photos for one of my favorite families. These photos are completely opposite from the view outside my window right now 😂
