Welp. Most babies have a cold with a runny nose during the first year of life, right? We made it 6.5 months without any colds or illness! However, that record came to a screeching halt this past week when our sweet girl had to be taken to the pediatric emergency room for a virus that no one could explain. You know it’s bad when the nurses stare at your baby as you walk to your room. Evy is COVERED in a bad rash from her virus and it’s so hard to see her this way.
It’s been an interesting week. We cancelled meetings, moved appointments, scratched the to-do list. It’s been eye-opening to say the least.
I’ve mentioned before that I’ve changed a lot since having a baby… and the truth is… the way I am NOW is the way I SHOULD have been YEARS ago.
I’m going to explain my recent discovery of the real definition of WORK and why it’s transforming my life in this video BELOW!
Ah! It’s our FINAL STUDENT SPOTLIGHT!!! This July post has been a long time coming but it’s HERE and it’s LIVE and I want you to help me celebrate these amazing photographers who are making their dreams happen!!!
This six month update feels like it’s weirdly disproportionate compared to other monthly updates! Why is that? Well, last month I posted a couple of sets of images that were actually at the beginning of his sixth month and THEN we photographed multiple weddings, had several trips away from home for a few days and the dads were for several days!
Hope and Jesse are the sweetest couple. You can just feel it when you’re with them! You can see it when you watch them interact. You can hear it in the stories that their family members and best friends shared about them. They are truly soulmates and best friends. They have an undeniable love for one another and that is why even a rainy, misty wedding day could be incredibly vibrant, warm and joyful!!
Rhett’s fifth month was full of fun. It’s crazy to me that I know I only take my big camera to about 10% of the things we do in a month and yet each month is SO full.
This beautiful wedding day took place in the rolling hills of West Virginia, just past the Virginia state line. Wild Goose Farm is a venue that I’ve never photographed before and let me tell you, it was a treat! We didn’t even have the sun join us for most of the day and yet we were able to capture beautiful portraits! Between the horses, old fences, stunning estate home, lily pad covered pond, old stone walls, rustic barn, open fields and a historic stone arch, I was in photographer heaven!
This session was just as sweet as it looks. We spent the evening with Megan and Tim in the country outside of Harrisonburg, Virginia. We were tucked away in the rolling hills in between beautiful fields and family farms. It reminded me all over again why I just love Virginia. We really have it all… beaches, mountains, history, and great schools! JMU, while it did play a role in Tim and Megan’s story, isn’t actually where it started!
