Another of this gorgeous family! This couple totally rocked their underwater images! They were both strong swimmers and moved around easily underwater. Definitely not necessary to get amazing underwater images, but it’s icing on the cake! 💦✨🙌🏻
I've never been much of a morning person, but I have learned to appreciate them. Mornings are a fresh start, an opportunity to leave yesterday behind you and start over. Mornings are also the perfect time for reflection, when everything is calm and the world is just waking up around you. Today as I drink my coffee and listen to the birds chirping outside my window, I am taking time to reflect and remind myself of my goals, dreams, and aspirations, and what I need to do to get there. Let's go boldly into this week and live with intention and purpose! Happy Monday!
Diving right in to work on this gorgeous wedding! The Wildwood Inn was gorgeous and felt like an old mansion. Chloe wanted her wedding to feel more intimate and having their ceremony in the back yard of the Wildwood was perfect! Lots of photos coming! #rljphotoweddings
Daily Intention... GRATITUDE
In the early morning light as the rays of sun beam down upon the earth, let us take a moment in GRATITUDE for this new day that we have been given. -
As the birds soar in the wind and the fish swim in the depths of the ocean, let us be thankful for that which we are witnessing on our journey. -
Beauty and grace surround our lives so let us live in a state of GRATITUDE. It is in the remembering... that we stay present. -
We appreciate that which is before us when we fully embrace the miracle of life. Each of our journeys is a unique blessing. -
Let us begin our day with complete and utter GRATITUDE for all that was, all that is and all that will be.
Be thy Light... -

Juniper. Its one of the freebies that comes with an essential rewards order this month and it is quickly turning into one of my favorites.
🍃It’s a great oil for cleansing - our bodies and spirits.
🍃It’s fantastic in your skincare or on itchy dry skin.
🍃It’s wonderful to use to cleanse your home of negative energy.
🍃Rub it on your sore muscles after a long workout, and over your liver and kidneys.
🍃It’s beautiful to diffuse with sage and lavender when you want to have positive energy and happy thoughts.
So, I am going through a bit of a crisis. Well, really it's #firstworldproblems because, in reality, my life is just fine. But I remind myself daily that one's issues & feelings are all relative to where you are in your own life & right now these feelings are relevant to me.
I want to appreciate life. I want to appreciate the things we own, the life we live, I want to do things with purpose, and I want to enjoy my husband & my children. That's not to say I don't do all of those things right now, but I can tend to lose myself easily, mostly because I am such a creature of habit. I set such a rigid schedule for myself that if I fall off my own wagon, I'm paralyzed. This, in turn, makes me appreciate less the things that I am doing right. It's a very strange, very sad cycle that I tend to get wrapped up in. I set these goals for myself, little ones mostly revolving around my daily work, and if I don't achieve them each day I feel I have failed. That's what has happened these past two weeks, I have not met my own expectations 😔 Strange, isn't it? To an outsider looking in, things look just dandy, but really I am struggling on the inside. When you work for yourself there's no one checking your time card, no one is paying you a salary, everything begins & ends with you. Add being a mother of two & a wife into that mix & you can have a recipe for disaster.
So, I want to be more patient with myself, allow myself to take Sundays entirely off & just enjoy my life. I know there are other work from home families who can relate to me when I say this; when your home is your place of work you can never really stop working. I know what you're all going to say, you're going to tell me to do whatever is right for me & my family 😊️ But if you know me well you'll know that I have to explain things thoroughly, spell it out to the ones I love WHY I'm changing something. So this is me spelling it out to you guys & I love you all for letting me do so ❤️ Love & bonnets, guys 🤗
