It all happened so fast. They told me it would but some days it didn’t seem true. This little lady is just months away from turning 8. This time it was her who drug me outside last week to take photos as the sun set. My cold dinner was worth it 100times over though. Skyler has grown up into such a wonderful little lady. Strong willed but so kind. Creative and curious. The best big sister to Grayson. Skyler I am so proud of you and thankful for you, God knew what he was doing for sure when he gave you to us!
We pulled over after 5 hours of bumper to bumper traffic on the 4th of July at #yellowstonenationalpark to take in the view of this Lilly pad covered lake. ⠀ ⠀ It had been a long stressful day, and we knew that when we decided to visit the #nationalpark on one of the busiest days of the year. ⠀ ⠀ I’m so glad Justin decided to pulled over here. It gave the kids a chance to stretch their legs, play in the mud and let me capture some photos of my family. ⠀ ⠀ Sometimes in life ya just have to pull off the busy road and take a moment to soak in what’s around you. Seeing the park from the road was neat we saw a good portion of the park. But stopping to soak in this little lake was even better! ⠀ ⠀ What are you stopping to soak up today?
Can I keep you forever? Forever and ever! ⠀ While I love all the beautiful details of a wedding it’s really the promise that it’s celebrating that makes my heart flutter! ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ For those who haven’t heard the story. My husband Justin, had three heart valve replacements within 8 months due to infection. We got home from Mayo Clinic after his third surgery just three days before our son Grayson was born. ⠀ ⠀ Just 10 months later his infection was back and this time it was in his sternum. They ended up removing the sternum completely. ⠀ ⠀ Those were some of the toughest times for us. It’s hard to watch someone you love struggle to do simple tasks. But ya know what I wouldn’t change how it effected our marriage. We had conversations we might not have ever had. We came out of this valley so much stronger. ⠀ ⠀ Our story has also changed the way I view my roll as a wedding photographer. Sure I take photos of beautiful people and flowers at a wedding, but what I’m really capturing is the day you blindly make a promise to stand side by side through all life will offer you. The highs and the lows. The peaks and the valleys, in sickness and in health. ⠀ ⠀ And that my friend is not a job I take lightly! I have a feeling this promise your making you don’t take lightly either! ⠀ ⠀ I’m so excited for all my 2020 and 2021 weddings. If your looking for a photographer for your wedding, I’d love to chat with you!
