Find your person that makes you laugh mouth wide open.⠀ ⠀ Have someone like this (best friend/spouse/love/pet/etc.)? Tag them to let them know only one person makes them laugh like you do ❤️⠀ ⠀ (@brandonallenczy I’m looking at you)
I’ve been confused lately. Doubting myself, my photography, why I’m doing this, etc. So today I decided I needed to change some things.⠀ ⠀ I unfollowed nearly all of the photographers I was following. I’m so happy for the success all of these accounts have had. But constantly being saturated by other people’s styles and success is confusing. So I removed the distractions so I can concentrate on myself and figure out how I want to move this business in the future. And not just start capturing and editing what’s popular.⠀ ⠀ So thanks for being patient while I work on finding my unique voice in a saturated field. This business is always a work in progress. Always changing. Always evolving. Always growing. And please don’t take offense if I unfollowed you. It’s me, not you.
I can be a fairly private person. And then when I do share a little. I get sad that no one wants to come over to my house with brownies and watch chick flicks with me after I feel like I’ve barred my soul online. I feel a little ridiculous. I have way too high expectations of friendships.⠀ ⠀ But it’s hard to admit I’m an introvert that craves people. I think it’s because I know myself. I know when I’m going through something hard. I put a positive spin on it and make it seem okay. Honestly that’s just me trying to make myself feel better. But I lay down at the end of the day and all I can do is pray. Lean on Jesus. While I tell everyone I’m okay. Truth is. I’m not okay. And I’m finally giving myself the right to feel. And to tell you, I’m not okay.⠀ ⠀ I working on it. I’m trying to be better about expressing how I feel. (Honestly I bury it so deeply I don’t even know what I’m feeling). And I’m thankful for those in my life that have let me be vulnerable with them. And just be. But also I want you to stop.⠀ ⠀ Stop reading these posts by your friends and commenting, “praying for you!”. Actions speak friends. And I know I’d rather have a couple of friends come over with brownies than 50 comments on this post. Because a nice comment on cyberspace won’t get someone battling depression through another day. So will you act? Next time you see a friend post this. Just go over there. Are you really too busy for a friend in need? Maybe they want to talk. Maybe they don’t. But you physically being there means so much more than you realize.⠀ ⠀ I want you to a tag a friend that supports you. Right now. And thank them for being there. For walking side by side together, through life. No matter what life throws at you. For Jesus never meant us to walk through trials alone.
I think every couples worse fear is rain on their wedding day. It might be messy, but it’s just another part of their beautiful, imperfect, messy love story. ⠀ ⠀ After family portraits we finally had a break in the rain and I was able to take Alex and Ryan outside! The trees were so lush and green, it really was a beautiful site! Rain has it’s perks too ya know! 💁🏼♀️⠀ ⠀ Comment a 🌧 or ☔️ if you think a rainy day can still be beautiful!!
If I told you we were going on another road trip....where do you think we’re headed next?? (Sush your mouth if you know already 😉)⠀ 🚗 ⠀ For the newbies here. This is me and my husband! We recently took a cross country trip from our home on the coast of NC to Utah! Swipe left to see the little car that took us to so many amazing places! This trip grew us as individuals and as a team and strengthened our marriage! Now counting down the days until our next trip!⠀ ⠀ So what’s your guess?? Where in world are we headed next? 🤗
Can you do me a favor?!⠀ ⠀ Comment your fav emoji if you see this post! This algorithm is killing me friends! I just don’t understand it and I would LOVE to know how many of you actually see my posts!!⠀ ⠀ Thanks friends! Stay golden ✨🤗
