#martickemanaged ✅ happy Monday y'all. last night i photographed one of my favorite family sessions so far and saw an entire herd of wild goats grazing on a cliff during my drive home 🐐 it was amazing and i almost veered off the road in excitement. off to explore some more pacific northwest goodness this week! follow me on Instagram stories for all the behind the scenes peeks, there are some AMAZING shoots lined up over the next few days!! custom suiting: @bindleandkeep hair and makeup: @vrokmua dress: @mikaellabridal coordination: @lionheartedevents film lab: @photovisionprints
from Angel and Kevin's first look. i think his face says it all! ❤️ i'm so so so happy to see the film scans from this sweet wedding in my inbox today. i've needed a severe pick-me-up after these past few weeks. i'll admit it, i'm feeling crazy run down in the midst of my peak travel season. and i have an even crazier story to share with you all about it. . i had to catch a flight home this morning at 6:15am, meaning i had to leave my hotel in San Diego at 4:15am to make it there in time. at 4:30am, i miraculously woke up on my own and looked over at my phone to see how much time i had before the first alarm... only to realize my phone was in the middle of a software update! i immediately tried canceling it, which only made things much, much worse when it completely froze and crashed. using a piece of hotel stationary scribbled with driving directions, i somehow made it to the airport in an unfamiliar city - plus a pit stop to return my rental car, which i had completely forgotten to factor in time for - and made it onto my flight just in time! yes, this is an INSANELY first world story, and i'm sure to many people, getting to a major city's airport is a total breeze! but this morning's silly turn of events reminded me just how much i need to turn off my phone sometimes (and my laptop..and the tv..) to remember that we are capable of so much on our own. . obviously i've fixed my phone to the point of updating Instagram again 😂 but now i'm thinking that it might be helpful to spend at least an hour in the mornings with my phone on airplane mode to help me refocus on my work and personal goals. here's hoping that posting about it keeps me to it!
