I took a break… a long break…. a much needed break. After shooting weddings back to back all summer long and trying to plan my own, I was tired. I had a few little meltdowns….my family may disagree with the “little” part but hey, I made it! After the wedding Michael and I had 4 days to live at home… at OUR HOUSE before we left for the honeymoon and it was the best decision ever.
I think the day after the wedding I took a 4 and a 1/2 hour nap!
I needed a break from my job, from the computer screen and from my lifestyle in general. Going to bed at 4am and getting up at 9 is not normal!! So I took all of October off and didn’t have my first session until this past
Monday! It was the perfect amount of time! I was so ready to get back to shooting people! (Only photographers can say that and get away with it!:)
So Monday I had the pleasure of hanging out with Amber and Tim. Let me just say that I LOVE THEM! I met both of them at Jackie and Jason’s wedding last December and fell in LOVE with the Banta family. When Amber emailed me and told me that she was engaged I was thrilled!!! Now I get to celebrate with their family all over again!! I have an awesome job. I love it. Amber and Tim made my job super easy because they just naturally love on each other and the camera loves that! Their session was perfect and I cannot wait to spend more time with this sweet couple at their beautiful April wedding! Enjoy some of my favorites!!
The end! Remember if you liked a pose or the light or just had a favorite… add it to your DesignBook!
It’s hard to believe I’m writing this… my fourth birth story in four years. I’ve given birth in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. Just typing that makes me tired….. and so grateful…. unbelievably grateful. These last four years have been the best and hardest of my life. We cherish being parents and welcoming a new baby is hands down the most incredible thing we have ever experienced in our 18 years together. I’m so excited to introduce you to our newest member of our family and tell you the story of how he came into this world!
Whether you’re brand new to business or have been in business for quite a while, this brand new Youtube video is for you! Michael and I, early on in our business, struggled to relinquish tasks to other professionals outside of our business. Really…. It was more of MY STRUGGLE than his.
Welcome to December’s Student Spotlight!! It’s a new month and we have new photographers to celebrate!! I’m so thankful for them and for their willingness to give of their time and share their stories!!!
This shoot was supposed to happen about a month earlier on the exact day that leftover rains from a hurricane swept through Washington. I’m so thankful we rescheduled! Our reschedule date was absolute perfection! The temperature, the glow, the locations…. it was beautiful! Tyler and Abby’s outfit choices were wonderful and the leaves were full of color and still hanging on the trees.
When Michael and I were in our early years of dating, I would go on trips with his family for Thanksgiving and summer trips to West Virginia and I spent time with his cousins! “Bri-Bri” was so little! He’s the youngest of all of the cousins and it’s crazy to think that he’s old enough to be getting MARRIED! He’s actually older than we were when we got married!! We have known Shannon for years and we were THRILLED when we heard that Brian had proposed because we always hoped that would happen!!!
Maybe it’s just me…. but I feel like this fall is FLYING by! It seems like just the other day that I was sharing about three more KJ Students who are doing amazing things in their businesses! Well, this weeks marks the beginning of November and I have three amazing students to introduce you too!!!
