Welcome to my Blog! I hope that these blog posts help you to let your hair down, take your shoes off, and feel the magic during our sessions a little easier. No matter what happens we are going to capture beautiful split seconds in time that, even though they may not feel like it at the time, will hopefully fill you with emotion.
Let me be real here for a minute. This photo means so much to me. I had just had my third baby and my husband was full time school and full time work. Three five and under. I felt like I was drowning a little. And don't we all feel that way at some stage in our lives?!? Maybe you are able to cope better than I am, but sometimes I get stuck. The point being I remember this day vividly. The two older kids were running around fighting and hitting each other and it was freezing outside and I couldn't think of anything for them to do anymore (I didn't want to take my brand new baby out in that germ infested world if i didn't have to!) I was sitting on the floor in the hallway in between the master and kids room and in desperation is said "go jump on my bed." Both of them were like "WHAT?!?" Who lets their kids jump on their bed?!? Not me, not ever. But this time I did. And thats when I saw the light spilling into my room (can i say i miss my master bedroom terribly!!!! It had the most amazing light and my decorating was spot on to what I wanted it to be; I digress) . The point being, I got out my camera and while the littlest one laid on the floor watching the big blobs of children flying through the air, I shot memories. And though its only been a year I can feel everything from this photo and I miss how small she was! Where has my baby gone?
I write this to you as a kind of simile. I'm not saying that your wedding is as chaotic or hair pulling or anything like my day was that day, but i am saying that it might be a little stressful planning it all. In the end, if you have a photographer who captures those fleeting, precious moments that only last a few hours in day that will forever change your life you will always have those memories and feelings that you had the day of your wedding. And just so we are on the same page, even though I remember that day vividly and the things that were stressing me out, I mostly remember the love I have for them and their small little bodies; the excitement of being a child, the thrill of something so little as jumping on my bed, the glints in their eyes, and the endless love that they have for me.
Congratulations on your engagement and good luck planning your wedding! I'm so excited that you have chosen me to be apart of it! Just make sure you let loose a little!
