I absolutely love that yesterday’s legacy family session ended with a cake smash that momma did not shy away from! Her beautiful jewelry, designer dress, gorgeous heels and styled hair + makeup did not keep her from the frosting, the kisses, and even getting down on the ground with her little guy! What a sweet moment, and a reminder for me that the lovely details don’t mean it’s not real, full of heart, and an authentic presence. So maybe instead of believing that all things pretty are a filter to cover something up, we can acknowledge that sometimes the best moments are both pretty & messy, in the sweetest of ways. Especially at Christmas!🎄💕✨#laurafootephoto #messyheartmusings
SWIPE FOR THE RAW SHOT 👉💕✨📸 Wrapping up ALL office work this week and it’s been a hustle, but with a lot of sweet moments to reflect on great moments from this year! When Yunsoo + Brice had a super quick moment at dusk to see their reception space before guests were invited in, I followed quickly! No time to grab a flash or bring any external lighting with me, I still knew we could make this shot perfect. Sure enough, it's one of my favorites from their day! Just a reminder that things don't have to be curated & timed perfectly to be moments worth capturing! A good reminder, especially this time of year! To be in the moment fully! 💛✨ #gracenotperfection #laurafootephoto
This week was REALLY fun, and full. Almost 1,000 miles on the road, 6 shoots and now? A Saturday unpacking groceries, helping friends, and time to take a nap (🙌🏽😱). I have one shoot and one wedding left before 2019, and to be honest, it’s easy this time of year for me to get anxious. Being an entrepreneur and casually riding the ups and downs of each season is not my natural tendency. But I’ve been doing this long enough to have the gift of perspective & years of God providing in incredible ways! So off I go, into a very mundane, sans camera, but lovely weekend 💛 What are you up to? How are you feeling as 2018 wraps up?! ✨📸 #lfpbts #messyheartmusings 🌿 Styling for @rebeccavannphotography by @meganmartincreative!
Celebrating several exciting 2018 #laurafootephoto wedding publication announcements today in my stories (while cleaning my house 😜 #balance)! Always grateful when editors see the hard work of my couple’s vendor teams while also truly caring about their amazing love stories. It’s always more than just pretty details; like Madison’s 3rd generation heirloom wedding gown turned into a custom designer dress (seen here!) • Thrilled to have one wedding left to celebrate a truly wonderful year. But now back to organizing for me! We pick up my sister from her 6 months performance cruise contract on Sunday! Ready for her to be on land and for holidays with family to begin! What do you have going on this weekend? ✨💛 #storieslovewrites
Oh how FUN to have two shoots in a row on Disney property this week! Touches of the holidays made things extra magical, but we also took advantage of Epcot’s internationally inspired architecture and The Beach Club’s sandy shoreline! Thrilled to now have an annual pass, a decade after my cast member journey with Disney began. Taking Mac on her first ride today was a sweet new memory, on top of these wonderful sessions! 📸💛 Ready for all the monorail rides in ‘19! ✨ 🚞#laurafootephoto #WDW #DisneyWorld #vacationsessions
Out of words, and full of homemade donuts (😍🍩) but the story shared in my IG stories says a lot about the past 24 hours in little Perry, FL, bringing @rebeccavannphotography’s new brand to life! Forever grateful for this work; the privilege of creating a tangible product that represents years of heart + hard work for creatives is such a joy! And @meganmartincreative put together the ultimate brand story this time, built around R’s grandparent’s marriage. Also her styling literally transformed this downtown studio ✨ SO much more to share, but here’s a peek and I’ll just be wishing I could live in a small town and run a studio part time in the meantime 💛🙌🏽📸☁️ #laurafootebranding #lfpgetaway #communityovercompetition
