I've been working hard to get back to back sessions blogged and edited so I can be caught up both in my usual time post-session but also before Daniel headed out to Mexico for his FIVE DAY fishing trip (then back to work on Monday, so I'm counting it as SIX). I've got some help lined up, but it's always hard when the other half of the parental support is gone. Hard of me and hard on the boys, so then it's hard on me again 😂💀 Today has been a good day and I'm grateful for friends and summer time. . . I hope I can entertain and keep my cool while not tiring myself out in the process and being able to enjoy a few hours of free time after they go to sleep. A part of me always gets kind of excited when Dan goes out of town, I look forward to after bed time when I can just do what I want and not feel pulled or guilty about watching my shows or whatever it may be.... but I always end up being WAY too exhausted and just pass out at 7pm with the boys 🤦♀️ . . How do you handle long stretches of non-stop kiddo time?
It's Tuesday after the wedding so your know what that means!!! Kristin & Raul's wedding is live on the blog! . . I ABSOLUTELY LOVED being a part of their wedding day!!! Such a beautiful day with fun people. So calm compared to most weddings! Very thoughtful and intentional. Thanks so much for letting me be a part of this special day, I'll remember it forever! . See more from this day and their AMAZING & unique venue here on the blog!
Swipe 👉👉 to see the cutest little yak nursery you ever did see 😻😭 I have two blog posts going up within 24 hours of each other 😅 I guess that's what happens when you do a newborn session and a wedding back to back! . . Ivan and I grew up together and I've been good friends with Paige for over 10 years. I've been witness to a lot of laughter, drama, but most recently a lot if love and a mature sense of calmness that seems to only come when you've found peace and trust with the person you're choosing to spend your life with. I'm so happy for these two and I hope life continues to bless them with calmness, security, and love 💕 . . See more of these cuties and their ADORABLE weenie pups 🌭 on the blog! Link in bio 💃
Two of my oldest friends and I all had boys first. Each of them are big brother and it's kind of funny the order in which it all happened. Paige had her first, first. Then Yessi and then me. I had my second, first. Then Yessi and then Paige. So in the time Paige had both of hers, Yessi had hers. In the time Yessi had hers, I had both of mine 😆 . . We we're all hoping for due dates to coincide with these number patterns that would satisfy the order or repetition of dates that would complete and balance our families or four. None of us got the dates we wanted. . . Anyone else get a little obsessed with patterns in letters or numbers? I have a few stories 😅😅 Tell me yours!! 👇👇
How is it Sunday already??? I meant to share these yesterday! This weekend has been one of those weird fast but slow moving to me. I went to Hill Country to shoot Kristin & Raul's wedding on Friday and I just had such a great time. Aside from forgetting my pump and having to change plans and make the drive back the same day 🙄🤦♀️ . . My favorite part of the day was their ceremony. It was short and sweet, each wrote their own sweet vows, Raul made a poem that was thoughtful and humorous, a few family members spoke up and shared words of wisdom or quotes they felt inspired to share to these two. They are obviously so loved and I appreciated how thoughtful their day was planned, with the focus of it on these two and their shared love for one another. Thanks Kristin & Raul for letting me be a part of your big day!! Can't wait to share more on the blog soon!! 💕
I still can't believe it's been an entire year. Time has always been so strange to me, minutes can feel like hours or hours feel like minutes, days turn into years and what feels like only yesterday, was 365 yesterdays. . . I've got an extra long blog post I stayed up late last night finishing. I had intended to get his 12th month photo today but it basically poured down all day and so that hasn't happened yet. So his last two months might not be up yet depending on when you're reading this 😊 . . If you like reading birth stories, or just looking at pictures and seeing how a newborn transforms in the first year, or need some raw, emotional, after birth sharing, I've got you covered 😉😆 . . Happy Birthday to the smiley-est little red headed boy I've ever met. We love you too the moon and back and all the stars in between 💕 . . link in profile 😻
I just absolutely love peonies. I had several of these beauts in our wedding, in fact, that's the only flower my bridesmaids got 😂 I also love cascading bouquets, the use of greenery is not only a smart visual choice but it's also a beautiful way to help cut costs!! #bridetiptuesday 😉 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What's your favorite flower?? To have around the house or to smell or that was in your bouquet!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Still obsessed with these images from this amazing shoot 😍😍⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ host::@seneaphotography⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ day of coordinator: @next_chapter_weddings⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ HAMU: @lilly_artistry⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ venue: @themeekermark⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ florals: @elementalfloralevents⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ designer: @m.weddings.events⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ dress: @venturasbridalfashions⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ model: @hellomoontea
This little boy is going to be ONE on Wednesday and I'm not handling it well 😭 I can't believe it's already been a year. Time has flown by, and not in the same way it did with Miles. With Miles, it flew but it was also seemed to drag on and on. I can only assume that it's because life is busier in a lot of ways than it was 4 years ago, but this is crazy y'all. Life is flying by and I catch myself tearing up all the time. . . Sage is the happiest baby and we often wonder if something is wrong with him because he's so happy 😂 He tries hard to keep up with his brother and is VERY busy and grabby these days. He stands by himself, mostly on accident, and when he realizes it he promptly sits or grabs onto something 😆 We assumed he'd walk earlier than Miles as that seems to be the trend with second babies, but it's not looking like that's what's going to happen here. . . We have started singing the I love you song (Barney kids know what's up) every night before bed. Miles always hugs and kisses Sage and my heart literally breaks and tears well up in my eyes. Every. Night. 😭💀💖 . . What cutie things do your kids do that bust your mama/papa heart? Don't tell me I'm the only one crying at everything 🙈
Two blog posts in the same week! Wow. I can't believe it's already Thursday. I've known this mama for a long time, we used to work together and I've shared my entire motherhood journey along side her. She's such a cool person and I don't think I've met anyone more compassionate and caring. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I messaged her about taking maternity pictures and she was on the fence, as most women are during pregnancy. I promised her she wouldn't regret it and was able to convince her she needed these in her life. I'm discussing this topic on the blog, so if you're in need of a #peptalk go check it out 😘(link in bio)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Her family came out after I finished my mommy & me minis and we did a quick little family session that you can view more of on the blog! I combined them with the mommy & mes all into once since it was the same day and I hope that's ok @shirleymarie11755 🙈🙈
If you saw my last post, you may be wondering what the heck an Airstream has to do with my photography business and why I'm incorporating it into my LOGO design!? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ WELL, I've hinted and dropped passing comments here and there. I'm working towards marketing myself as an ELOPEMENT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER!!! Elopements and destination weddings where we'll travel in our airstream to US destinations and I'll photograph you wedding! HOW👏 COOL👏⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm sharing more details on this and how I came to this AND a giveaway opportunity for out of state couples, over on the blog today!! 👉👉 Tag an out of state friend! Even if they're not engaged, maybe they know someone that wants to be my first #nomadicweddingphotographer couple!!! 💃🎉⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Side note: I've been wanting to share pictures of our Airstream but she wasn't exactly photo ready when we had her, and is now too far away to get any to share about her on here. So I'll just share this picture of what my dreams look like 😂 #thatairstreamlife ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *This is NOT my picture, I found it on Pinterest*
