Words can’t even begin to describe what an incredible shoot this was. From the laughter to the learning and friendships made. Getting together with creative minds that value community over competition is absolutely heartwarming. After only 15 minutes into this shoot, I looked around and thought to myself, “These are my people.” 💗

A year comes and goes so fast. My first couple from last year just celebrated their first anniversary and welcomed their baby boy a few months before. We are now approaching almost a year for these two and they also just welcomed a baby boy to the world! Love keeping up with my couples!

Real talk: marriage is hard. Don’t get me wrong- it’s beautiful, sweet and fills my heart with joy. But it also takes work to maintain. Loving someone unconditionally is a daily choice. Some days harder than others. But for me, every time he grabs my hand and his thumb strokes over mine, my heart melts. And I know that the choice and the work is worth it. Because finding someone who loves you equally unconditionally is a treasure. And you know it’s hard for them to love you too sometimes.  So when times are tough, just grab their hand and think “We got this. And I’m not letting go.”

I can’t believe it’s been a year since I was heading down to Kentucky for this workshop. Talk about divine intervention. I won my entry but questioned if I could go since it was 6 hours away- just to come to find my mother in law’s best friend lived in the exact city where the workshop was being held. So off we went!  What a great opportunity that I’m so thankful for!

This session last year really set the stage for me. It was after this one that I thought “Yes. THIS is where I want to be.” I am so thankful for learning and for growth. It just makes the journey so much more rewarding.

Only 3 days until my half marathon people! Why is this such a big deal to me? Well, for one, I haven’t been able to run one in 5 years due to several injuries. I am just under a year out from surgery and have FINALLY been able to get enough training in to sign up for one. And, the last month I’ve been dealing with what I’m guessing is a stress fracture in my ankle. BUT IM DOIN THE DANG THING!  My body just has to hold up 3 more days and 13.1 miles. Prayers are always appreciated!

Well I can’t lie. The weather in DC these last few days has been nothing but gloomy and I’m feeling a bit lonely here all by myself. I love meeting new people but my partially introverted self is ready to get home to the hubs. And yes, I did partake in watching the royal wedding today and loved it.

Today I’m headed to Washington DC for the national Oncology Nurses Congress. That’s right. I’m still practicing as a registered nurse and you know what, I love it. I enjoy the best of both worlds- and brains. Math and science mixed with artistry and creativity.  Anyone out there working two jobs? #thehustleisreal

I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since this workshop in Kentucky. It’s amazing to see how much growth there has been since then. It just reminds me how thankful I am to be on this journey and for the amazing people I have gotten to work with along the way.

We’re always looking for a way to make our wedding unique. So what could be more unique than your own words, crafted into vows to your forever love. I don’t know about you, but weddings with sincere emotion and heartfelt words will always win me over. These vow books from @beautifully_noted are the most beautiful way to write down and keep those vows you make to each other.

Is this mom-to-be just absolutely stunning or what!? Loving this recent maternity session. Spring is the perfect time for these sessions- especially before wedding season really starts ramping up!

THEY'RE ENGAGED!! Proposals are some of my favorites. When Greg messaged me about wanting to propose to Malia I was absolutely thrilled. We schemed a plan, tweaked it literally at the last second (mini freak out) and absolutely nailed the surprise! His love for her is so sweet and it was a joy to help him make her day an absolute fairytale. Keep swiping ➡️➡️➡️ to see the rest of their incredible Santa Barbara beach proposal.

Looking at my blinking cursor thinking “I don’t really have much to say today.” Besides this is one of my favorite portraits from last years wedding season. Is that okay?
