BE SCARED AND DO IT ANYWAY. Fear is very powerful and it can hold you back from so many things in life. Fear of not knowing what will happen, fear of being alone, fear of being a failure, or even worse fear of regret. 🤛🏻 To be honest I was scared to apply to physical therapy school for the second time when I was in college, because many professor's of mine told me my GPA was too low to apply. Guess what? I got in anyway. 👏🏻 I was scared to start a new career path when It didn't end up working out in grad school. A lot of my family and friends didn't understand me, going from being a Dr. to becoming a photographer. Guess what? I did it anyway! and have been happier for it. 📸 I am scared of moving away from home again, from being away from my family and especially my grandma since she is getting older. I have this comfort here, but guess what? i'm moving anyway. (I feel like quality time spent with family is more meaningful then quantity as well). I also need to think about my dreams and my goals. ☁️ If I had no action I wouldn't have experienced so many great things along the way. Are you scared?? DO IT ANYWAY!!! 🙌🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photo lab: @richardphotolab
Picture this: Waking up on a Sunday morning with your best friend. You’re talking about the dreams you had last night, and just taking in the moment with no phone in sight to check your instagram or e-mails. ☁️ Your next move is to make some pancakes and brew some coffee together while listening to your favorite music or movie. ☕️🥞 Just taking in your engagement and happily having a great morning. ☀️ Tag someone you would love to do this with!! 😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photo lab:@richardphotolab
Im trying to become a simpler person in the way I live. I gave away all of mine and my husband’s clothes that we haven’t worn in a while. I am trying not to hoard everything, and let me tell you it feels really good! Living in a 600 square foot apartment is not fun when you have too many things. 🤭 I will say I am a photo hoarder! I have 15,000 photos in my iPhone right now and can’t seem to delete any. 🙈 Just thinking about deleting most of them makes me anxious! Half of them are photos of my dogs and I feel like all of them are important!! 😂 Do you have any hoarding habits? Photo lab: @richardphotolab

When taking Andrea’s bridal photos I saw her right hand and saw a cat ring on her finger. She apologized that she didn’t take it off before her photo session and I told her to not apologize! I knew she loved cats so much and had a cat of her own at home that she cares deeply for. I wanted to take a detail shot of it and knew she would love the final result! 🐱 Little things like this matter, and make a bigger statement to your story. Photo lab: @photovisionprints
AHH moving is so stressful! I think I’ve moved to 10 different apartments so far! It does get a little easier, but there’s still so much to do when you move. 😳 Do you have any good tips on moving and organizing? I need all the help I can get!
Let. go. Let go of the worry. The anxiety. The struggle to make people happy. The past. The need to compare yourself to others. 🙌🏻 Let go and make yourself happy. I am on of those people that always tries to make everyone happy. I am a giver, I love to give. To my family, my friends, my husband, and to others I might not even know. It’s great to make people happy, but when you try to do everything for everyone else and don’t take care of yourself it can hurt you. It’s not healthy! Let go a little. ❤️ Whatever you are doing that’s making you feel more anxious let it go. Forgive someone, stop looking at what they are doing and comparing yourself, stop worrying.
My wedding earrings! I loved them so much. Want to know how I found them? My mom actually bought my wedding earrings for me when we bought my wedding dress. I remember her telling me “are you sure your going to wear them and not change your mind” I of course said yes! (I can never make up my mind) 😂 A month before my wedding came and guess what? I wanted different earrings. 🤦🏻♀️ I was at @kendrascott with my friends and I remember her telling me “Do you want to use my birthday discount to get some earrings for your wedding before I buy something” I of course said no. Right before we were about to leave I open this drawer and see these gorgeous earrings! I thought they would go perrrfect with my simple dress. I didn’t get the discount but I didn’t care! I loved them. My mom ended up wearing my original earrings 😆 Photo: @brittanyjeanphoto Calligraphy and design: @suzzannegamboa
Family has always been the most important part of my life. I am one of those daughters who calls their parent’s every single day. Even if its just to say “hi” or “how your doing”. People might think I am crazy, but I’ve always been so close to family. Now that I am married I am creating my own family and its exciting to think that one day it will keep growing, but for now its just my husband and my two sons that are my everything (Ozzy and Oliver) 🐾 It’s so special to have photos to look back at from when you first started as a family, and continue to take them as the years go by. This is something I have to work on myself and get someone to take photos of us! I mean look at these two cuties! @joy_in_thejourney will look back at these photos and remember how precious these moments were. 💕 Are you looking for family photos? E-mail me and we can schedule your session! I will help you with your vision, create your story as a family, and help with your outfits! Usually my clients don’t know where to start when it comes to outfits. I will create a custom vision just for you! Photo lab: @richardphotolab
