Guys!! It has been a minute since I blogged....over 2 years to be exact. My last blog post was in October 2017. It was from a beautiful wedding that I wanted to remember forever. I had just delivered the gallery and was working on the album when I got a call that the groom has tragically passed away. How could this be? How could life be so unfair? They had only just finally gotten married! After the dust settled, and life started to go on as it always does, I tried to blog again. I wanted to showcase my other weddings for my beautiful couples-I just couldn't. I couldn't write. I would pick up my computer and was stuck, my mind would go completely blank. So I took a break...."it will just be for a few months" I said, "just until it feels right", "things will get easier soon". But it didn't.
Today is January 2, 2020 and I am ready....are you ready for me?
Today I am sitting in my studio (which is something that I have never thought would happen) planning my year out. I am picturing all of the babies I will meet and children I will photograph here, brides and grooms I will meet with, and help fill their walls with memories- and could not be more happy or excited.
In the last 2 years I have felt ridiculous amounts of stress- having gone through an extensive structural home renovation (the least fun kind!) worried about where my business was headed, worried about my kids (I know mamas get me). I have lived and witnessed loss, stress, fear, pain, and disappointment, but I have also witnessed hope, pride, MIRACLES, LOVE and new beginnings.
Every baby that comes in the studio is a fresh start. A blank slate. A new life.
This year I want to meet all of the babies.
Don't panic brides...I'm still here for you!! I will probably never give up weddings.....they are where my heart is. I truly love-love, and sharing your special day with you means so much to me.
I have a few projects in the works for this year...Stay tuned, and I you are engaged or expecting....call, text, email, dm, smoke signal me-let's save the most special moments of your life together!
Ps. Take a minute to check out my last blog from 2017. I'll never get tired of seeing some of my favorite images of all time, and remembering the absolute feeling of LOVE all day.
