We were still in a whirlwind after a couple of crazy-busy weeks of work and four days away attending and speaking at a conference. We were tired to say the very least and we weren't exactly feeling up to all the energy we knew it was going to take to have these family photos done. And to be completely honest, we rushed in and out of stores within the two hours leading up the session to complete our outfits...let me just say, I am a PLANNER so this was 100% outside of my norm and the way I like to operate. All that to say, we are SO glad that we put in the time and effort to have these family photos taken. When Jon's response after seeing one of the photos was I. Literally. Just. Died., then you know we really, really LOVE these family photos. (Okay so he was exaggerating just a bit, but you get what I mean!) Our kids are growing up too dang fast and even though I keep telling them they're not allowed to grow any bigger, they don't listen to me. I have specific memories of when I was an 8 year old and now I HAVE AN 8 YEAR OLD! 😭 These will forever be some of our favorite pictures and I can't encourage you enough to set aside the time for family photos this season. Just do it, you will be so thankful that you did! P.S. If you're local to AZ, we have some awesome family photographers we can refer you to! 🤗 And also, our sweet friends who took these, @refugephotography_alr, do travel!
Hey all you photographers! 👋🏻 It wasn't too long ago that Jon and I would be preparing for a branding shoot and feel completely lost with what track we needed to be on with our shot list. 🙃 As brand photographers we were forced to figure it out and create a solution for ourselves. ✨ And this is where we want to help YOU. 👏🏻 Whether you're a brand photographer who needs a road map for your next client's shoot, or if you yourself need something to help guide you through your own brand session - we've got you covered! 👊🏻 We put together our baseline go-to shot list that we use for every shoot and you can get your hands on it for FREE using the link in our profile! 🥳 We want to help and serve the best we can so tell us, are there other tools or guides that you would find helpful?
#behindthescenes of what it looks like when Jon and I divide and conquer and I do a shoot on my own 😂 Had to capture myself adding in the dash of salt and this is what that looked like. All reality and no Insta-glam shot for today! 📸: @realrachelpaul

I love this little family of ours so stinkin' much! Jon and I always dreamt of and talked about having a family together one day, but I don't think either of us knew just how much God was going to bless us with ours. Brody has one of the most caring and thoughtful hearts and is always right on time with writing me a note to tell me that he loves me when I need it the most. And he's got this Jim Carey thing going on where he talks out of the side of his mouth and it cracks me up so much. He loves making people laugh! Paislee is one of the sweetest little girls in the world! She wakes up with a smile on her face and is happy and ready to have fun 24/7. She writes songs and tells me how bad she wants to be on stage, after telling me how cute of a girl I am. I always knew Jon would make for the greatest dad one day and he really is. He's definitely the fun one of the two of us and as long as they never get embarrassed by their dad's dance moves, they'll always want him around. When I first saw this photo that @refugephotography_alr captured of our family, I was in tears because of how happy it made me. These three are my world and I wish I could freeze our family right here, but I will cherish these photos forever!
