Dang, I love a good b&w portrait. So classic! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm busy in the office today finishing up a few portrait galleries, creating wedding timelines for my September + October couples and doing some much neglected cleaning around the house. Tomorrow me + my man are taking an entire day OFF just to go out to breakfast, binge watch a few movies and spend time together. Its so rare that we get uninterrupted couple time and I'm so excited for it! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hope everyone is having productive Thursdays over here! Almost the weekend y'all! 🎉
I was supposed to have a stunning sunset session this evening because southern MD was calling for some severe storms tonight- and of course we have nothing but SUNSHINE ☀️ So we tried to out run the “storm” and had photos this morning instead with my girl and her man! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Craziness. But Im pretty pumped about how these turned out anyways. I mean those trucks? Gorgeous- am I right, @chevrolet ? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Oh, Braxton & Jessie are ok too I guess 😉😘
Where has this week gone? I feel like it totally flew by! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Im finishing up this stunner of an engagement gallery to send off in a bit + packing up a few more boxes because its moving day again folks! Thankfully we're only moving down the hall due to some unforeseen issues with our current condo, but I'm hoping this is our last time packing up shop for a while. The only thing worse than packing is UNPACKING (am i right?) Hope everyone has a good Friday! What are your weekend plans? ✨
Your face when I tell you that Christmas is only 5 months (aka 152 days away )😬🎄
If @covergirl could bottle Ashleigh's pregnancy glow, it would be over for every other makeup company 🔥 Just sayin' 💁🏼♀️
Today is feelin' like a Monday you guys. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My to do list is piling up. My credit card is MIA. And we just found out we have to move again (thankfully only three apartments down, but still). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Im cheering myself up with lots of snuggles from my little on the couch while binging movies and enjoying this rainy day inside. Also, busy editing some of these GORGEOUS galleries to get sent out this week. With details like this, do I have the best job ever or what?
TRUTH BOMB: Why are women so dang hard on themselves?!? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I just had a nose job. This summer I broke down after YEARS of being teased about my nose. Shoutout to the kids in school who told me I looked like a horse, or the boy I dated who told me my face was disgusting and that no one would ever love me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wanna know a secret? While I totally love my new nose (even though it’s still swollen & gotta nice new scar now), I thought once I had it done I would *finally* feel beautiful. FINALLY feel like I was good enough. But today I put on a swimsuit and then I was hating on my small chest, my thighs, picking apart the fact that ya girl had bruises ALL OVER my dang legs because Im Anemic AF and Lyme's has been kicking my butt lately 🤦🏼♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Why are we as women SO hard on ourselves? I've noticed this trend every time I see a girlfriend of mine. We pick apart our weight, our pants size, our smile, our instagram likes, our hair, our nails, EVERYTHING. Once we fix whatever we think is wrong with ourselves, society tells us theres a new problem. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I don't know about you guys, but Im really sick of it. Its hard, but Im really trying to love myself more this summer. And maybe that includes being super honest and kinda rambling on Instagram 🤷🏼♀️. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Im pro do whatever you want, fix whatever you feel like you need to fix, to make yourself feel beautiful. But Im also pro maybe don't pick yourself apart every single day. No matter what you do, don’t let your insecurities dictate your worth 💕
This quickie trip to Canada has been a success! We took a boat tour under the Canadian side of Niagara Falls, did a cave tour behind the falls (which was kind of terrifying tbh). The water is SO blue and just so beautiful. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Crazy how powerful this 10,000 year old beauty is. 3,160 tons of water flow over the falls every second which makes the Niagara falls the most powerful waterfall in North America. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We're off to another tour behind the falls this morning and then we pack up and drive on over to Alexandria Bay for a stunner of a wedding on St Elmos Island!
