Rest. This week is being spent with some of my favorite photo friends for a bit of relaxation and fellowship in OBX! Cash me outside. (Or likely inside, as it's supposed to be bitterly cold) • Also, my favorite part of this entire photo is the boy in the striped shirt- I mean, really. Could you be ANY more French? #abbygraceineurope

I don't have an ounce of Irish blood in me, but I have BEEN to Ireland...so here's my obligatory St. Partrick's insta purely for the sake of reminiscing over how this sight literally stole breath from my lungs during a shoot with @hsamson22! I can't wait to take you here, @matt_springm! #abbygraceineurope
This is scary to share. It feels so incredibly private, and yet time and time again I'm being convicted over just how powerful it is to put our journey out for others to hear. We have our first fertility treatment this month. For anyone who's curious, our doctor has recommended IUI, so that's what we're proceeding with. We're going with natural cycle, so no hormone medications, shots, anything like that! • To be candid, I'm excited AND I'm scared! We found out last week that our insurance doesn't cover any fertility treatments, so from here on out, we're on our own. And my most pressing fear is over what if my body betrays me and it doesn't work, and we will have poured thousands of dollars into an unsuccessful treatment? • I KNOW that God's plan is good. I know that, and right now, I'm praying the PEACE that comes with that knowledge will wash over me, wave after wave. • If you're the praying type, would you do me a favor and pray for us? It's always been hard for me to ask others to pray for us because I know we're not alone in this struggle. But as my sweet friend @katelynjames reminded me, our pain is not invalid just because it isn't one-of-a-kind. Photo by my sweet friend @sarahcbradshaw #springmannjourneytobaby

Now that the snow's over, cherry blossoms are coming... DC photogs, time to go to war. I mean WORK. Time to go to WORK. Obviously.
One of my favorite spots in all of Paris, one I found by accident while shooting @katherinebignon's bridal line two summers ago! I know the tendency when traveling can be to try and pack as MUCH as you can into each day, but I don't adhere to that method. I believe in the magic of wandering, of stumbling upon gems just beyond the main tourist areas. I believe in the awe and wonder of finding something for yourself, and feeling as though you own a piece of it! That's why Paris will always be mine- I've discovered, and continue to discover her, all for myself 😍
So....let me get this straight. It is March 13th (ONE WEEK before Spring officially begins) and we're expecting a snow storm tonight? Cool. Cool cool cool. Just checking.
