My good friend Ashley recently reminded me to shoot for enjoyment not just work. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s a funny thing, working in your passion. My husband jokes all the time that I don’t have a hobby because my job IS my hobby. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I love photography dearly, and I am so very passionate about all of the in’s and out’s of that world. But it’s easy to forget the enjoyment of it when you are shooting 20 weddings a year and constantly in ‘Go’ mode. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As artists we have to stop and make room for white space in our minds and in our eyes. White space being a blank canvas for whatever fuels you creatively. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There are a lot of things that hit that mark for me but my #1 passion point is a gorgeous warm sunset, and #2 is capturing my girls with beautiful portraits (not just my daily iPhone pics at Target). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Remember to always make space for what makes you happy. Even if that means pulling over to an undeveloped lot and sloshing through the mud for a photo op. ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thanks for the reminder Ash! 😘
Wedding Tip for all my #fieldstonebrides !! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pick out a brand new perfume for your wedding day! Something you’ve never used before and LOVE the way it smells. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Then every time you smell that perfume for the rest of your life it will bring you back to your wedding day! And you’ll feel all the feels all over again. 🥰 Not to mention it makes a beautiful addition to your detail photos! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #qcweddingphotographer #muscatineweddingphotographer #themerrillhotel #midwestweddingphotographer #engaged #weddingtipwednesday #weddingtip #weddingdetails #iowaweddingphotographer
It’s the week before Christmas which means it’s officially time for me to start Amazon Prime-ing Christmas gifts. Or I could just get everyone a Chik Fil A gift card... that’s totally acceptable, right? . Are you a last minute shopper or a planner?!
We also had the honor of celebrating with Becca & Blake at Celebration Farm yesterday! What a beautiful day it was!!! ❤️❤️
