It's officially fall! It doesn't feel much like fall here in Florida, except for the fall decorations at Disney World. But, I'm hoping by the time we get back home to Illinois that it will have started looking and feeling like fall. What's your favorite part of fall?
Sunday Funday? I think this should be a thing. This picture just makes me laugh. Andy was supposed to be walking along this ledge, leading Hannah along the water. But, then he forgot to pay attention to where he was heading and just about pulled her down with him. The good news is that he didn't go over the other side, which has a bunch of huge rocks and then the lake. I like to leave a few outtakes in a client's gallery. They make you remember how much fun we had that day. #karenshoufler #karenshouflercouple #chicagoengagement #chicagowedding #chicagoweddingphotographer #midwestwedding #lakeshoreinlove #midwestwedding #illinoisweddingphotographer #travelweddingphotographer
I tend to fill every waking moment with busy work. Can anyone else relate? Sometimes it's mindless scrolling to get inspiration. Sometimes it's staring at a screen waiting for words that just won't come. Sometimes it's editing the same photo over and over and over again. But, you know what? When I take time to give myself an hour in the middle of the day, or a day every week, or a weekend a month or a week out of each quarter, I come back from those mental breaks so much more refreshed! I have better focus, better energy and much more clarity to get the next job done, and done well. When is your next break?
The most beautiful fall-like summer day was the perfect weather for Carrie & Kevin's outdoor wedding. This wedding day was filled with people who loved this couple so much. I loved watching all of their friends and family just look at them with so much joy. Isn't it fun to watch people who are genuinely happy for others? I mean, the joy on this day was just contagious!
