One of my favorite pictures from our wedding day. All eyes on her as she walked down the aisle...everyone knowing what a battle she had fought and how lucky we were to have her there. And, 10 short days later days later, I imagine she walked into heaven much the same way...All eyes on her.❤️ If you knew her, your life was better. She was the most ornery, beautiful, and sweetest soul. But as much as I miss her, I know her mom and dad (sister and brother too) have a gaping hole in their lives that can never be filled on this side of heaven. If you think about it, send encouragement their way today. ❤️ They fought the fight right alongside her, and made it possible for her to live the fullest life she could while she was here with us. Love you sweet girl, can’t believe it’s been 7 years. Can’t wait to see you again someday. 🙌🏼❤️
Seven years today. ❤️ Happy anniversary to a guy who likes to be with me as much as I like to be with me. 😂😂 Love you, babe!
“Hustle is the opposite of heart. And so one of the tiny little things I’m learning to do is to PLAY. Essentially...to purposely waste time. What would it be like if our days were studded by tiny, completely unproductive, wild and beautiful five minute breaks, reminders that our days are for loving and learning and laughing, not for pushing and planning, reminders that it’s all about the heart, not about the hustle..” ❤️❤️ Re-reading one of my very favorite books today, Present over Perfect, and reminding myself that sometimes painting acorns in the middle of a beautiful fall day is more important than anything else in the world. 🙌🏼
Getting ready to do a sunrise engagement session with some of the neatest people I know. But all I can think about is how freaking amazing God is. 🙌🏼❤️ Takes my breath away.
Truth is, I don't really want to go to my grave being the photographer who could take good pictures. I want to go to my grave being the photographer who loved people...and loved them well. ❤️ I get the immense privilege of being there for people during some of the biggest and sweetest moments of their lives, and you better believe I don't take that for granted. But if I expect to produce perfect photos every time, then I'll miss what's really important...THEM. Their story. Their journey. And in this case, their LOVE. The people that come into my life aren't by accident. In fact, they're my purpose. 🙌 This wedding was incredible...from start to finish. Filled with so much emotion, laughter, love, crazy inside jokes...and even a missing wedding ring. I mean, what is better than that? ;) Ben and Maddie, you two have carved a sweet little place in my deHeart. ;) ;) I'm so thankful that you allowed me to step into your love story and be there for the best day of your lives. It was truly an honor. Every single moment. ❤️❤️
Just in case you had me confused with someone who likes to eat healthy. Yes, I am eating the entire thing. No, it’s not a small plate, the cookie is actually that big. Yes, the recipe is in the comments below. You’re welcome. 👍🏼
Here we go!! ❤️📷 Comment below or email with the date you’d prefer (both are evening sessions)...it’s first come first serve!!
Ladies...this is one of the most powerful, yet doable devotions I’ve done in a long time. 🙌🏼 I’m always amazed at how I open it up and it is EXACTLY what I need to hear from the Lord that day. Coincidence? I think not 😉. It’s lighthearted and funny, yet allows me to dig in deep to scripture...at least for the 2 1/2 minutes that I have to myself each day. :-) Anyway, I thought I would share in case anyone was looking for a good one! ❤️ Happy Monday!!
