We’re in a quite a new season. Rhett’s seventh month has been the month where he decided to start moving! No cord, cup, small choking sized object is safe anymore! This happened literally the week he turned seven months and he has been on the go ever since.
I was gone speaking at a conference and I got a text with a video of him moving that first knee. By the time I came home two days later, he was a mover and a shaker. It’s so bizarre whenever one of our kids hits the phase where we place them in one spot and then find them in a completely different ROOM a few minutes later. We knew he would crawl early because he prefers to be standing these days and he’s more active than ANY of the other kids. He’s SO active in fact that he would rather be exploring the world around him than eating. Nursing is a struggle. Is not even that he doesn’t want to nurse, it’s that he doesn’t want to commit to being still even to nurse because he doesn’t like being still for a bottle either!! It’s a battle but he’s getting chunkier so all is well.
Rhett, you’re our “rally” kid… you can get happy even when you’re exhausted. You can be so far past bedtime and still crack a smile at someone who smiles at you. You are so independent but yet towards the end of this month, you have become very aware of when I leave you and it’s both precious and challenging. :) You’re so strong… you’re so alert and aware of everything around you… you seem to love being where the action is!!! We love you little buddy! This season of life is fast paced and challenging with all three of you but we’re loving it. We’re tired and exhausted most days once 8pm rolls around but we wouldn’t trade you guys for the world!
32 Years. Over three decades. Can you image the impact? My dad accepted the call to our tiny little part of Virginia when I was just 18mos old.
Off season is here!! For wedding photographers, this is hopefully a time to rest and rejuvenate before busy season kicks back in. This is also a great time to focus on some back-end business tasks you might have had on your plate for a while now.
2021 was a year to remember! I decided to close out YouTube for the year, by reflecting back on life lessons 2021 taught me – what worked, what didn’t and what I hope to remember as I move into 2022.
You guys know talking about the tech side of a photography business is not my expertise… but thankfully it IS Tyler’s!!! I asked him to take over this YouTube video because I want to help you figure out which Mac is going to be the best one for you (even though I shouldn’t be the one to help you with that!!)!
It’s been years since I’ve done a round-up of some of my favorite images from the year! I struggle to narrow these down and so I decided to showcase some of the images with the best candid emotions!
Welcome back to another Behind the Image! In this series I take you behind the scenes of a real wedding day and then analyze one image! Today we’re analyzing an image from a wedding we shot back in May that should NOT have worked…but it did!!
