Good morning, instafam. How was your night? Scott and I had “passionate conversation” (😬) about our big dreams and I feel wiped out today. Perhaps I feel that way because it’s 5:30 AM? 🤷🏼♀️ Much coffee is in order! Anyway, making things happen is challenging and scary and our dreams are bigger than our britches, if you know what I mean. I’m so grateful to have a level headed, honest and grace-filled man to walk by my side through it all 💗 Image by @emmarosecompany
Happy #friyay! There’s a Palm Springs engagement session in the blog that you don’t want to miss. Lots of sun and wildflowers in the desert. We really do have perfect weather for much of the year...just don’t ask the locals how we feel about June, July and August!

A cloudy, quiet morning in Paris. Doesn't that sound incredible? Ever since my trip this past summer, Scott and I have been casually chatting about when we will go as a family. Has anyone traveled internationally with young kiddos? Carolina is 4 and I feel like she may not tolerate the 12 hours flight from LA for a few more years. She's a bit of a handful! I want to travel with them while they're young but I also want them to be old enough to remember such significant trips. SO, when did you start flying internationally with your kiddos? Any tips? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Workshop: @thesignatureatelier by @abbygracephoto & @katherinebignon Model: @arienneswinson Blush Gown: @katherinebignon Jewelry: @bekah_anne_accessories
Yesterday was a hard day on my heart. Total transparency? My earthly father failed my family in a very painful way. Some of this was brought back to the forefront at church yesterday and my goodness, I surely can fall back into a dark place very quickly. However, moments before the hurt began, I had the privilege of co-leading our staff in worship. We sang No Longer Slaves and Good Good Father. How fitting that the Lord knew what I was about to face, and He gave me a song to remind me that HE is my Father, and He will never fail me. He will never fail you. If I can pray for YOU and YOUR heart today, DM me. 💗
My time at the Eiffel Tower is on the blog! It was a cloudy, chilly sunrise. Coffee in hand, film in my bag, and the twinkling lights of Paris shone brightly when we arrived. It. Was. Heaven.

Sharing some of my work from my time in Paris on the blog tomorrow. Don’t miss it! I’m still dreaming of this lovely and custom gown by the ever talented @katherinebignon 😍💗🙌🏻 Does anyone else just swoon over lace? I wish I had more occasional to wear it. Perhaps I’ll start wearing it often, just because I can, yes? 🤷🏼♀️🙌🏻 Scans @thefindlab Workshop @thesignatureatelier 💗
It rained in the desert today. What a sweet surprise it was...streets shining, greens coming alive, the air smelling of damp mesquite trees (my favorite!). While I may be 100% #southernatheart, this desert place pulls me in deeper and deeper still. Florals by @arrangements_design Film @fujifilm_profilm Lab @richardphotolab 💗
Good morning, sweet photogra-friends. If you’ve been on the fence about joining our one day business intensive on February, I have 3 words for you: DO IT AFRAID. It’s ok to be nervous, it’s ok to be unsure. It’s NOT OK to stay the same, though. It’s not OK to have the desire to change your business and do nothing about it. It’s not OK to not know your numbers and therefore lack a profit each year. It’s not OK to give yourself and your work away for less than what you’re worth. This could be your year. 2018 could be the year that you finally take the leap and launch (or re-launch!) a successful business. Are you in? Early bird tickets are on sale until January 7th. If you’re ready to take the leap, click on the link in my profile to take you to the workshop page. If you have questions, DM me! I’d love to chat with you 💗 image by @emmarosecompany
Our latest family portraits are on the blog today! SO many thanks to sweet @emmarosecompany for capturing these images for us! And yes, Carolina is most definitely licking my face and she constantly tells me I taste like caramel. #momlife #myfavorite Link in profile!
Happy 2018! My goodness, if 2018 looks anything like 2017 did, then I sure am in for another beautiful year!
