If ever you are thinking that a bouquet is only an accessory when getting married, I urge you to reconsider! Maternity sessions are a wonderful time to enjoy some stunning blooms and @sherwood.florist knocked this one out of the park! #jessbeckerphotography ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ HMU: @wildheartedbeauty
A gentle reminder for expecting mama's! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am completely full for October, can maybe squeeze in 1 newborn for November and just a few for December. I am always so, so sad to have to tell families that I don't have availability - so if you are due later this fall or winter and know you want newborn portraits, please reach out so we can chat now! #jessbeckerphotography #jessbeckernewborns
I'm sorry, who said it was allowed to be October already?! As soon as fall hits each year, time literally seems to double in speed. Amiright? We will blink twice, and Christmas will be here! In fact, I just bought my first gift the other day -- like whaatt?!?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My fall calendar is filled with portrait sessions, a wedding that is going to be phenomenal and SO fun, and some sweet little newborn babes. Mixed into all of that, I'm going to try and check off some fall family fun items too. The pumpkin patch, maybe an orchard, carving pumpkins, you name it! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you have any fall traditions that you or your family does each fall? A special place you love to visit, or an activity that's only around this time of year? I'd love to hear about it!!
Here's hoping your Monday has bee a great one! I try really hard to have an office day on Monday's because it gives me a chance to catch up on emails from the weekend, and get a jump start on editing and scheduling for the week. The weeks that I do that, I feel so much more organized and better prepared! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you have any weekly routines that keep you organized or jump start a productive week? Let me know! #jessbeckernewborns #jessbeckerphotography
Well, it’s no secret that I’ve only been posting about once a week for awhile. As I navigate the notoriously crazy fall season, I’ve been spending time with my wonderful clients, editing, lots of emails, planning and all the things. Meanwhile, posting to my feed has fallen through the cracks a bit. I am sure there are others who can relate, and y’all - it’s OKAY!! It’s ok to do a little less here because you’re doing more in other areas. • Speaking of the fall busy season, I have actually blocked off this whole weekend to go out of town with my best girl friends. Am I crazy to plan that in the midst of the hustle and bustle? Some may say yes, but I challenge you to consider that this is actually the BEST time to do it! • The more I take care of myself and allow rest, the better I am able to serve others. So I will take this weekend (after I finish up a few more sneak peeks and emails!), to step back, relax, perhaps enjoy a little wine and dancing; and I encourage you to do the same! And in case you feel guilty (hellooo, I hear that!), feel like you shouldn’t take a break, or whatever other excuse pops into your mind, hear me as I say: DO IT! You deserve it!! Maybe that doesn’t look like a weekend away, but it could look like dinner with friends, a great workout, getting your nails done, or taking a nap. You must take care of yourself, so as to take the best care of others. What have you done for you lately? #jessbeckerphotography #jessbeckernewborns
You know what friends? I have been on the struggle bus a bit this week. The things that I am incredibly grateful for, are also making me feel slightly (or more than slightly) overwhelmed and that's been hard for me to wrap my head around. Busy season in business, a new house that's still not fully unpacked and organized, new school schedules for the kids and the homework battles...shew. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I kept thinking that I couldn't voice how I was feeling, because it would make it seem as though I was ungrateful. But friends, I am here to tell you that the exact things that you are immensely thankful for, can also be the ones to make you feel like you're going nuts! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Can anyone else relate? Maybe you started a new job, went back to school, or started staying home with your kids. You are SO glad and SO grateful to be in that season of life, BUT it comes with it's difficulties too. Have you ever heard others say Well YOU wanted this or You're so lucky, others wish they could do that and it immediately makes you feel invalidated that you get overwhelmed? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Whatever it may be, there are always ups and downs. Crazy hectic times, and times of more rest. You are allowed to be both crazy thankful and crazy coo-coo-bananas at the same time! Please don't let anyone make you feel otherwise. If this feels like you too, I totally get it! (insert virtual hug here). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Image by @cassidymr edited by me.
