Hand to heaven, my husband sometimes has to drag me out of my home office to get me out for a date night. From a full time job, to two kiddos, to this amazing business that connects me to so many wonderful people and keeps me hustling, I often push aside my own self-care to take care of others. What can I say? I love what I do! And at the end of the day, I work hard because it’s what makes me feel as if I’m truly living my purpose. What (or who) are you out there hustling for?
What’s your favorite Holiday song? There are plenty of unmistakable “sounds of the season.” Around here we know the holidays are fast approaching as soon as the local radio station begins playing 24/7 Christmas tunes. In terms of music, though, my all-time favorite is Bing Crosby's White Christmas album. My mom always put this on as we put up the tree and wrapped presents, it's the quintessential Christmas album to me! So, tell me, what’s your favorite Holiday song? 🎅🏻❄️🎄
To those who've been here a while, thanks for sticking around! To those who are new to my feed, welcome! I like to take some time every now and again to (re)introduce myself, and this time, I’m doing it with a super seasonal slant! 🎄 Here goes: most Saturdays this month you can find me running errands, Christmas shopping, chasing toddlers, and chugging coffee, and on Sundays, probably relaxing on the couch, a book in hand while the football games play in the background. I am a high-end gift wrapper wanna-be, so I definitely put some time in around the holidays in my pjs, scouring YouTube and Pinterest for the most creative ways to wrap presents. Then I remember I have two toddlers and the most creative I get is wrapping each person's present in their own style of wrapping paper. 🤣 I live in Indianapolis, which means it’s dark by about 4 pm, so to compensate I burn my Christmas candles all day long. I like to think I keep the Tis The Season @bathandbodyworks candle around by the sheer number I purchase and burn this time of the year! 🕯 My weakness this season is my Grandma's cheesecake and it doesn’t feel like Christmas without at least a dozen screenings of Home Alone. And if no one would judge me, I’d live in pajama pants and ugly Christmas sweaters all month long. Now tell me something Christmas-y about you!! 🎅🏻 • 📸: @katelynngphoto
“Close friends are truly life’s treasures. Sometimes they know us better than we know ourselves. With gentle honesty, they are there to guide and support us, to share our laughter and our tears. Their presence reminds us that we are never really alone.” ~Vincent Van Gogh
Tell me, what’s your favorite food or drink for the holidays and how much do you let yourself indulge? 🍪 The average American gains around 5 pounds every holiday season. I’m here to tell you, I’ll probably gain more, and I’m totally OK with it! Life is too short to pass up all the Christmas cookies!! 🤣 This time of year gives us so many opportunities to gather with family friends and make memories over favorite meals and I fully plan to indulge all holiday season!! 🎉
Today is no regular Tuesday. It’s National Cookie Day (as if this time of year didn’t already give us enough reasons to celebrate)! So I wanna know: • 1: What’s your favorite kind of cookie? and 🍪 2: How many will you eat in observance of this most sacred of holidays? 😋 I’ll say that for me, I am obsessed with the inside out chocolate chip cookies I found from @bromabakery! I’ll be sure to start hinting now to @jdcarney26 (right now, perhaps!) so maybe a bunch of these goodies make their way into my stocking this year! So what’s your favorite cookie?
Using only 3 words, describe how you are feeling today. I'll start - joyful, motivated, and caffeinated! ☕️💪🏻
As a photographer, I provide so much more than just gorgeous photos. I’m passionate about capturing the real, honest moments of your story, but I’m equally as passionate about the genuine connections I build with each of my clients. Those connections that turn into friendships. It’s the smiles we share, the laughter we make, the stories we share, the awkward moments we embrace. My goal is to not only give you images that you love, but also help you remember how you felt in the moment they were captured.
