Wow guys, wedding season is almost here and I'm so so excited about the fun couples I'll photograph in the next few months! 💍 This part right here is the perfect way for me to start the day because it brings together all your wedding details, colors, and touches and it gets me ready for the wedding day! 💐 If you're worried about what to have ready for me to photograph on the morning of your wedding day, go to the link in my bio, I have a list ready for you! 🤗
Happy birthday to our sweet princess! 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉 Everyday I’m more and more proud of the big girl she’s becoming! The big 5 came in a blink and I spend more and more days looking at her baby pictures and crying! #momlife ❤️ I’m definitely enjoying her last year home before starting school next year! She’s the best big daughter and big sister!! 😘⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I love you baby and your goofy personality!
If I’m not photographing stunning brides and grooms, you better believe I photograph the next best thing. Pregnant mamas have my heart no matter how much I say I’m not doing portrait sessions anymore! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I mean, come on. Pregnancy glow and desert glow are absolute perfection!
I couldn’t let today pass without remembering what happened 17 years ago. Last year Alex and I were blessed to visit the 9/11 memorial and in New York and it was life changing. I will admit that originally I wasn’t crazy about doing the tour because I don’t like going to places that make me feel sad, but ultimately it was the best thing we did on our trip. If you’re ever in NYC, go to the museum, it will change the way you remember what happened there many years ago. #neverforget911
I love Mondays!!!!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Is that weird? Should I keep my mouth shut? Is that against the law? Is that out of the ordinary? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Oh well, I do. Mondays are one of the 3 days I get to do some office work and it's so refreshing getting to get back to work after a few days off! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I used to work myself to the core Monday to Saturday and then work off my phone 75% of the day on Sundays. 12 - 14 hour days. It made me think what as the point of being my own boss? Setting office hours to my business and saying NO to social media work on Sundays and some Saturdays is so good for me that its making me LOVE MONDAYS! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you are like me, and you feel like you are working 24/7 without an end to your to do list, let me remind you that some things can be done tomorrow. It is totally ok to say no to something that doesn't help you grow as a business owner and as a person. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So tell me, what are you saying no to this week, so you can say yes to family, personal care and/or spiritual care?
Happy Friday friends! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Something I’ve implemented a few months ago was Social Media free days/weekends! Having big-ish kids really put into perspective just how I’m spending my time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I read somewhere once that from birth to the time they turn 18, there are 940 weekends and while some of you might think “come on Vero, that’s a lot” and it is, I’m currently down to 680, and I’m sure I’m gonna lose a lot of the teenager weekends. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So here are 3 ways I make sure I stay off social media during those SMF days or weekends. 🤳🏻 1. I delete the apps off my phone. Seriously, Instagram gets deleted and reinstalled more than any other app. 📱 2. I lose my phone. Seriously. Weekends are mostly spent with Alex, so if anyone needs to reach me they call him. ⏰ 3. I try really hard not to start my day on my phone! . . . I love my Instagram community, but I love my family and friends more. I hope this encourages you to put your phone down and spend quality time with those you cherish. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you have any other tips, please share below, I would love to read them!
