Our dog probably doesn’t know where “home” is anymore. I joke about that a lot because we’re always on the road and it seems like he’s ALWAYS heading to grandma’s but it’s actually really true…..I don’t know if he knows where he OFFICIALLY lives. The amazing thing is that with Bokeh Boy, it doesn’t matter. He is the most adaptable dog. He went with us to the farm on Tuesday and had the time of his life running around chasing his ball… not a care in the world. That night, he went upstairs and slept with Buddy and Jill instead of with us because he can make anywhere feel like his home.
As cheesy as it sounds… there is a lot to be learned from this smart little pup. We love his company and his companionship and whether we’re on the road, at grandma’s or at the farm…. he’s happy. It’s almost like he lives by the words “Home is wherever I’m with you!”. As long as he’s close to us, he doesn’t care where he is. :)
The last few weeks I have struggled with that thought. It’s a weird feeling to come home to a house that you wish you weren’t in anymore because it’s been on the market for over a month with little activity. The weird thing is that it’s just a war with my mind because I LOVE our house…but I wish it was under contract. I wish there wasn’t still a “for sale” sign in the yard…. but you know what? God’s timing is not my own… His plans are not my plans (even though I would REALLY like for them to be right about now!!) and so we’re learning a lot about patience and we’re learning to TRUST at a whole new level. It’s amazing how much you can grow from not having things go your way. :) It’s actually really good for us!
So as we move forward with the house sale, I continue to remind myself that my HOME isn’t defined simply by the walls of our house, home is wherever I’m with my family. If a 3 year old Bichp0o can figure this out…. so can we! :) Happy Thursday everyone… no matter where you call home, enjoy it today!!
Oh, this wedding day!! What a beautiful Texan dream! I met Melanie when she attended one of our workshops years ago in our home. She had the sweetest spirit and such a kindness about her. I remember loving how she made personal marketing her own and did headshots in a pile of Skinny Pop!! I loved her creativity and her ability to envision what she wanted in her brand.
My review of the Canon EOS R6 after shooting a full wedding day is LIVE on Youtube! I was so nervous to use a brand new camera system for full wedding day… I had my Mark IV ready in my bag just in case… but thankfully, I never had to use it! I was really hoping that I would love it and feel comfortable with it….
This wedding venue may look familiar to some of you who have been following us for a while! I photographed Meghan’s brother’s wedding a few years ago at this very same farm and venue!
Natural light photographers…. (flash photographers, we know how you would handle these scenarios and that’s awesome for your style! This is for the natural light folks!)
I’ve been hoping for this day for a very long time…. but I wasn’t sure that it would ever come. That sounds dramatic but let me explain. I LOVE my website company. Showit is incredible and the more I learn about and experience other platforms for hosting and creating custom websites, the more I realize, they aren’t really, truly “custom” at all. Showit is the website design platform for the creative. Hands-down. It’s so powerful, so intuitive and so easy to use. Years ago, Showit created a way to implement a Showit theme onto a Wordpress blog!!! Genius! I couldn’t wait for my blog to be a Showit blog…. but it never happened.
If you are like me and you’re a natural light wedding photographer, you may not love using the Canon 600 EX-RT flashes. But they are so necessary!
