Funny how it happens... a handful of weeks without a single post on social media! Half of the entrepreneur inside of me feels like I’ve done something wrong - like posting on social platforms somehow validates me as a business owner. But my other half knows the truth. ⠀ ⠀ In these past weeks I’ve photographed beautiful spring weddings, couples who adore one another, and brand photos for two creatives with endless drive. We bought a house this month and are in the middle of a complete floor to ceiling renovation. I’ve had coffee with friends, hugged my mom on Mother’s Day, and am watching my belly grow as second trimester flies by. I have happy clients, a job that I love, and work/life balance that puts a big smile on my face! ⠀ ⠀ Truth is: socials don’t change our value, identity, or the quality of our work as artists. We are so much more than these little squares!⠀ ⠀
Our little family is growing! We are overjoyed for our sweet October babe 🌱 ⠀ ⠀ Baby E, you are already more prayed for, celebrated, and loved on than you know!
“One day, you will look back, and see that all along you were blooming.” - Morgan Harper Nichols⠀ ⠀ This is a small reminder that you are exactly where you are meant to be. The beauty is that you always have been. So here's to seasons of growth, season of rest, seasons of hard work, seasons of healing, and whatever season you're in at this very moment 🌱⠀ ⠀ Venue // @thewhitesparrow⠀⠀ Planning and Design // @borrowednblueoccasions⠀⠀ Photo // @graydoorphotography⠀⠀ Video // @yourstrulymedia⠀⠀ Florals // @katiebugflorals⠀⠀ Beauty // @meaganbechtel⠀⠀ Rentals // @beautiful_event_rentals + @junk_disorderly⠀⠀ Calligraphy // @prettypostcalligraphy⠀⠀ Sweets // @Sweetthingsdfw⠀⠀ Staffing // @cohoststaffing⠀⠀ Catering // @pecanlodge⠀⠀ DJ // @djedpetty @leforcedj⠀⠀ Transportation // @premierofdallas
What flavor was your wedding cake? Or maybe you sprung for another dessert option? At our wedding (almost five years ago!) we had vanilla cake with vanilla frosting. As simple as that is, it’s my all time favorite!

I began my business back in 2015 and named it after a small detail with great meaning. Within our first three years of marriage my hubby and I moved from our hometown in the midwest to two different cities on the east coast, followed by our most recent move to Dallas, Texas. With each relocation there was a new home and with each new home there was, coincidentally, a gray front door. What may seem like a tiny detail in an early chapter of our story has become a symbol of some of the happiest years of my life. The newness, adventure, joy, and unbreakable bond created when we wed come flooding back to me when I think about our newlywed years and the gray front doors that welcomed us home.
