GRACE // friends, this pregnancy is nothing like my last. I feel nauseous, exhausted, and not myself. The struggle is so real right now to work as much as I need to in order to stay on track and reach deadlines, so I'm genuinely asking for patience and grace as I promise I'm doing my very best to keep my clients happy! I know this phase will pass, and some days are much better than others, but I've always been honest with you all .... so it's important to me that you all know where I'm at! Thank you for your sweet texts and messages and congratulatory comments!
If every in home session ended with a pillow fight, I'd absolutely be ok with that! Even if the aftermath is frightening ;) I plan on writing an entire blog about the workshop I hosted this week, because this small caption space will certainly not be able to hold all of the words needed to express my complete shock, joy, excitement, humility, and gratitude that came from this experience. I made so many new friends, connected with the most talented kick ass girl bosses out there, and although my purpose and goal was to bless others, I left feeling more inspired and passionate than I could've ever even expected. I couldn't have asked for a better experience, or more supportive group of women to be involved. Almost everything went NOT as planned, and it was such a perfect reminder that we're not in control. And that's ok. The end results were better because of it. So many photos to come from these past days, so stay tuned! Also!!! If you missed my insta story... I'm pregnant!!!!! We are so excited and thankful for this blessing, and I couldn't wait to share! Asking for patience and grace from my clients as I've been pretty sick and exhausted! Love you all! #mspworkshop
Hosting a photography workshop has been a desire of mine for months, but fear constantly overpowered my faith (and confidence!) to do so. This experience has been life changing! I love these women, their passion, and their drive to be #bosswomen I am so glad I took this leap of faith, and so grateful for these days at the beach, with these gals from all over the country, celebrating, shooting, educating, inspiring and growing together!
Can you tell I love photographing bridesmaids? Also, these dresses?!?! Yesterday's wedding was so beautiful! And the catered tacos plus chips and salsa were a definite win haha #happilyeverkell
Friday Feels! Heading out of town for a wedding tomorrow, then my workshop starts on MONDAY!!!! Low key freaking out, but mostly so excited! Praying it doesn't just downpour (join me please?). Hope everyone has a great weekend!
Woke up with such a go getter mentality today, only to find that my kitchen was covered in ants, someone hacked my business bank account, and our water had been turned off. How's your Wednesday going? (On a brighter note, I'm still in a great mood and excited to spend the afternoon shopping with my favorite shopping buddy! #cantbringmedown )
If you wanna shoot by a waterfall, I'm 100% asking you to get in the water ;)
Booked four flights today! The next five weeks have me in San Diego, Hawaii, San Francisco, Las Vegas, and Zion! I'm trying to play it cool, like it's no big deal to get to travel for work (or like I'm just super cool and do it all the time), but really, I'm SO flipping excited!!! Before this year I had never travelled outside of my own state for a shoot! So, where to next? (Anyone wanna bring me to Europe to shoot your wedding or elopement?!)
