It's tough to step away from work as a creative entrepreneur. There are always things to do, clients to talk with, and improvements to be made. But I've learned that it is SO important to find that balance. I may not be the best stepping away, but I'm going to try to enjoy this Friday off with a good book and my hammock.

Joanne, Katie and I started talking about this crazy idea of a Star Wars inspired styled shoot when we randomly sat next to each other at a @risingtidesociety meet up this spring. @lastingimpressionsbydesign made it a reality and then it was published on @weddingchicks! Today on the blog, I'm sharing my favorites from this shoot!

For the first time ever, I am doing mini sessions and they are THIS WEEKEND! I have a few spots left, so if you are interested then check out the link in my profile!
These two have been by my side on this journey since day one and I am so incredibly thankful for them. Lauren and Everett, thank you for believing in me before I even believed in myself. Their anniversary session at @theallenfarmhaus is on the blog today!
Instagram, meet @laylee_emadi_photography. I don't know if she knows this, but this beautiful girl has been such a huge part of my journey as a creative entrepreneur. She has cheered me on, listened to countless rants via text message and even traveled for hours just to spend a part of the day with me. She was one of the few people that told me that chasing this dream full time is HARD and it's not all unicorns and rainbows. She was absolutely right, and she's been there to get me through those tough days. Today, all of her hard work has come to fruition as she kicks off day 1 of the @lareverieworkshop. I'm so bummed that I wasn't able to be there, but y'all I can't tell you how PROUD I am to call her a friend. I'm cheering you on from San Antonio, Laylee! Go give her some love, friends!
When I planned this little square on my social media calendar, I had planned to share something along the lines of Happy Monday and you've got this. Life had a different plan for me though and I was so busy that I didn't even have time to look at social media, let alone post something. Instead of my regularly scheduled caption, I want to share how grateful I am for this life and the people in it. Today I met incredible people, listened to a love story, talked to dear friends, and made big plans. Tomorrow, I get to wake up and do it all over again. You know, life can be pretty amazing if you let it.
It's an incredible day when I get to capture sweet moments like this. Allanah and Drew, y'all were AMAZING at your session tonight! I can't wait to share the rest!
I can't believe it has been one year since these two tied the knot! We had so much fun capturing Cami and Jimmy's day in St. Louis last year. Wishing you a happy anniversary and many many years of happiness!
I love seeing the bride's face light up when her florals arrive on her wedding day. It is normally the first time they see their vision come to life! When this beautiful bouquet from @thepetalpost arrived in Jasmine's bridal suite, even I got excited! The bright florals paired with her soft mint colored bridesmaid dresses were the perfect combination for her summer wedding! More photos from their wedding day is on the blog! Link in profile.
It was the perfect day for the sweetest couple. Jasmine and Jacob's summer wedding is on the blog today! Link in Profile.
