After a few real meaningful talks with a friend, I've come to realize that social media is often a lot of bologna. There's always going to be a veil of inauthenticity but I don't want to contribute to it. I've been trying to be more real with y'all over the last couple of months, especially when it comes to planning.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ SO here comes honesty hour!! I have no idea what I'm doing...in case you noticed the last couple weeks have been quiet on the Let's Cut the Cake series, that would be why ! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I tell my couples to soak in the season of fiancé-ship (fiancé-hood? hmm...), and it's time I take my own advice! I'm going to take a breather and let things catch up this week. Because the last thing I want to do is be preaching about something I can't even get a grip on myself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That said, next week I'm going to share about making our save the dates and how easy the whole process was! But I'm waiting on that to let our guests actually get them in the mail. I love them so much and I want them to be a surprise !!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the meantime, I want to know how you handle the overwhelm!! I will take any and all advice on how to slow my roll and get back on track!
It's now the status quo that when I shoot a crazy beautiful bridal session, I have to either sit on my hands orrr share a previous crazy beautiful bridal session. Or else I go crazy! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ T-minus 31 days til McKenzie and Steven get married! Til then, here's Rylee being a dream bride at @thefarmhouseevents 🥰 . . . . . #bridalsession #bridalportraits #bridepreparation #theknotrealweddings #theknottexas #huffpoido #keepaustinwed #bridesofaustin #southernwedding #ohwowyes #instawed #soloverly #thehappynow #hollymariephotography #austinbride #texasweddings #darlingweekend #visitaustin #austinweddings #atxweddings #austinwedding #austinbride #hmbrides #hmbride #bridaldiaries
Swipe right to see the cutest little goon...! Last year Hayden was so little, but this year he had his big boy khakis on and can put his hands in his pockets!! Plus he's officially graduated from baby shark...we're all pleased about that! Thank you to the Bennett family for such a fun sunrise session! P.S. never leave AJ alone with your toddler unless you want him to teach them how to say various car names 😂 . . . . . . #austinfamilyphotographer #atxphotographer #austinminisessions #austinfallsessions #atxminisessions #backtoschool #outfitinspo #milestonephotography #familyphotography #risingtideaustin #bandofun #abmlifeiscolorful #dowhatyoulove #thehappynow #atx #theeverydayproject

In 8th grade, I took a class called Film as Literature and we studied all the classics. We got to dive into video ourselves and made our own productions. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For one project, we split into groups and had to recreate 5 minutes of a movie SHOT FOR SHOT! As in, recreate the setting, make our middle school selves look like the characters on screen, and get EVERY SECOND right! It was tough but that class has made me look at movies differently even to this day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (P.S., my group did the economics class in Ferris Bueller's Day Off when he's going Bueller...Bueller..? I was the girl with lots of 80s eyeliner who blew a bubble and it popped in my face !) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The other elective I took in 8th grade was B&W Photography...so you can guess which one took my attention all the way through high school and college. Although I dabbled in a little video in high school, enough to have to watch Eraserhead (not really my thing) and learn more about the equipment and logistics of cinematopgrahy! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Are you still with me, through my longwinded flashback to my school days?? Good, because you'll be the one to know to anticipate something HUGE tomorrow...! Stay tuned my friends! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Til then, please make this an even trade and tell me something you discovered or were obsessed with in middle school! No judgement if it's just being a scene kid, we all went there right??
