My oh my, this guy, the one buried in my neck, I feel like I don’t talk about him enough but he’s truly my favorite person to ever walk this earth (I mean, besides Jesus). This image by my amazingly talented friend @briannawilburphoto is a perfect depiction of how he makes me feel - full of life & joy & love & happy butterflies. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Marriage is an incredible adventure and it surely doesn’t come without oodles of hard work, but aren’t we more invested in and most proud of the things we work hardest for? I was telling a friend how the most important shots to me from our family session were the ones of M & I - because we’ve fought so hard to get to where we are and even after all these years, kids & changes, this thing with the two of us is still just as important - no scratch that - even more important then it ever has been. We’re role models to our children (and their children & so on!) on how relationships and marriage work and the pillars of our home and family. The significance of marriage is so much more than we’ll ever know - a ripple effect that will delve generations deep & I feel so stinking grateful to have images so true to our love. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So mamas & papas, don’t you dare forget about “you two” even after the littles start making their debut into your world. You’re love is worth it, I promise. ✨
Over here sending out galleries & spooning chicken soup like some kinda ninja today. #bossmama (That statement actually describes me to a T...) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The best part is shooting and the second best part is delivering those images like a special, perfectly wrapped, tied-with-a-silk-bow present that I. CAN’T. WAIT. for you to open! So much happy and love and beauty and emotion and tenderness and all the things that make life grand x2467...coming to the blog soon!!! 💕
I just finished writing all the copy for my new site (eeeeek!) & have become a big pile of mushy, sentimental goo locked in a glass case of emotion the last couple of weeks while doing so. I've dug so darn deep so find the real words to portray my why for weddings & families so that y'all can take a peek inside my heart and see what I'm really about. I've thought, as a wife/mama/daughter, what's most important to me? What do I want documented forever and ever? What kinds of images would I love to show to my grandkids when they visit 30 years from now? What images am I drawn to in my own home or my parents & grandparents homes? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Alright now let me tell ya - it's never the one's where were all looking and smiling like toy soldiers. It's the ones where there's life and joy and love and emotion oozing out of every square inch. I'm here to take the incredible, significant beauty of the life you share with your favorite people & turn it into a tangible gift to yourself. You may look down at your pajamas that you haven't changed out of yet and at your kid that's melting down because you wouldn't give him another pack of fruit snacks and say...BEAUTY?! YEP. & I promise there's lots of it all around you and I want to help you see it too.
