My kinda Friday - filled with adventures with the kiddos, said kiddos that are now hanging out by the pool at their grandmas while the little guy takes a nap, a *mostly* clean house, dinner in the IP, my freshly showered self sitting with a face mask on sneaking in a little editing & reading (currently reading Girl Wash Your Face by @msrachelhollis - so so good!) & getting ready for the hubs to walk in the door any minute. Wouldn’t trade all the little things for anything else in this world. ✨
Slept for 10 hours last night so I’m basically feeling like a goddess today💁🏻♀️...that is until my middle child came in & woke me up by poking me in the eye with a princess wand. As my friend @janaesinclairr says - #arethey18yet Happy Friday friends!
As a creative professional, it can sometimes be draining to shoot the same thing over and over again without feeding your soul. “Feeding your soul?” you may ask, so think of it this way - what brought you here, what made you choose this career path & what makes you want to keep doing it? If you know me you know I’m allllll about feeding the soul (some of my favorite ways include - gorgeous light, chocolate chip cookies, long summer days filled with adventures & redecorating anything!) because there was once a time when I never did it. I shot the same things, over and over, never for myself and only once in a while did it fill up my creative cup...until everything changed. I’ll write about it soon and my big switch from studio stuff to the real, joyful, soulful, life-giving stuff I shoot now. In the meantime, I urge you to be around people who light you up, who inspire you, bring you joy & friendship & love and love them back...HARD. So speaking of people that bring me joy & friendship & love - meet my dear friend @briannawilburphoto & her precious gem of a family on my blog this morning! Their family session checked all of those boxes above and more. 💕
