NEW BLOG POST // Shortly after meeting Mikaela for the first time early in 2018, I started to realize what a beautiful, classic sense of style she has. Each time I saw some other element of her day, I could tell how the pieces were going to fit together to create something stunning! And when she first sent me a picture of her dress…I’m not sure I’ve ever actually had my jaw drop open before! But apparently that can really happen when something takes your breath away, because that’s exactly what happened to me! 😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Mikaela is drawn to timeless looks and simple elegance, and it suits her personality and even appearance so well! She’s stunning! She exudes this sweet, quiet, peaceful beauty that is just so charming, and which compliments Josh’s personality (and Marine Corps dress blues!) so well. Their wedding day blog post is LIVE—click the link in my profile to see just what I mean! ❤️ Dress Designer: @allurebridals Dress Boutique: @ellabluep Rings: @lamoredesign Rentals and Florals: @heartsdesire374 Portrait Location: Rio Mimbres Country Club, Deming, NM
My life for the last few weeks has been relaxed and crazy, all at the same time. How can that be? Oh yeah, kids on Christmas break. 🤪😜🤣 But today is their first day back—is it okay to say I’m incredibly excited about that?! Haha! I love them dearly, but PEOPLE!! This woman needs a little more structure and excitement than three weeks at home in cold weather, staring at the same four (albeit cute) faces can provide!! 👱🏻♂️👱🏻♀️👧🏼👦🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The rest of this month is super exciting though, woop woop! My agenda for the next two weeks includes a girls’ weekend in Scottsdale with one of my dearest friends from high school (best thing ever!!), an Albuquerque wedding for these two sweet souls (isn’t this the most tender moment? 😍) and a visit from my momma, who lives 1,610 miles away (but who’s counting? 🌎). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How’s your January shaping up, and what are you excited about?!
Take me back to @whitesandsnps!! But make it 20 degrees warmer, please and thank you. ⛄️
Well, we’ve already established that I’m off my New Years’ game, but in case you need further proof—it’s January 6th and the Christmas decorations are still up. Anyone else?? 😆🙋🏻♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today, though, it’s all comin’ down to the hip hop rhythms of the Hamilton soundtrack. 🎧 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What do you listen to when you need to whip your life—er, I mean house—into shape?? . . . . @sutton_farms #thestruggleisreal #lifebalance #keepinitreal #mombosslife #communityovercompetition #risingtidesociety #shootandshare #nmweddingphotographer #lascrucesweddingphotographer #lascrucesweddingphotography #lascrucesphotographer #lascrucesphotography #demingnewmexico #demingphotography ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This Christmas break is kicking my butt. My kids are stillllll out of school, y’all! Here I am, chomping at the bit to kick 2019 into high gear, but the reality is I’m still four days away from structure, routine and most importantly, a quiet, clean house. 😆🤷🏻♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So while I’m waiting my brains out, remember my IG story about planning the first look location for this wedding?? Well, here’s the shot I was visualizing that day—swipe to see the paper doll mock-up that helped me pull it off! Mikaela and Josh, your blog post will go live on Tuesday! Thank you for your patience, it will be worth it!!
What do you think, friends? Are we soaking up the last day of the year, or counting down to a clean, blank slate? And how do you ring in the New Year?🎉🎊
