Andrea and Evan are on the blog today! These two were so much fun during their engagement session. So easy going and they never stopped making each other laugh! I absolutely can’t wait for their wedding this summer! @ps_plans
Homemade moisturizer in my story today! Everyday products that you use on a daily can severely impact your overall body functions ranging from your hormones, your mood, how you sleep, weight gain, etc. Have you ever thought to read the ingredients on your moisturizer? Scary stuff. This though--- loaded with essential oils and an infused olive oil with calendula flowers from Egypt! ( Another video in my story... this stuff has been fermenting since July, people!!!! ) Side note, I've talked about my weight struggles that have become super real since moving to the south. In this video, you'll see me in my biggest clothes I own... big sweater, big sweats. So before you fall off your chair thinkin' I've gone and gained 100lbs ( because it def looks like it here) I have not! Only 20... which I've lost 15 of it! 🙃 Back to the moisturizer... this is legit! I tell ya all about it in the video! 😊 go take a peek!

Life is a beautiful and unique adventure. We all have our own path that’s different from everyone else, something I was reminded of at #jessicariekeworkshops . I have watched other photographers fill with joy when they receive film back for the first time; it seems so magical. That was not the case for me…my first scan day was a huge disappointment. I sat at my desk staring at lackluster images and doubt filled my head. I questioned my ability as a photographer and shed a few tears. I put too much stock in how the film would turn out on my first attempt and failed to appreciate that I captured beautiful digital images from the same day. Come to find out, my film camera had a focusing malfunction that wasn’t detectable while using it. My hopes of lovely film from that day may have been lost, but my clients still have absolutely beautiful images. A few months have passed, my film camera has come back from Canon basically brand new (can I get some 🙌🏼) and I finally shot film again at Jessica’s workshop.
Why share this story, you ask? Why admit a failure to the world? As Einstein suggests, failures lead to success. Instagram can seem so polished and put together and that is no one’s real life. Following your dreams isn’t easy and it’s definitely not always pretty. My first roll of film sucked but my clients still have beautiful photos from every part of their day. After an initial failure with film, I picked myself up and tried again. This morning, film scans hit my inbox and I cannot hold back the excitement, because I’m officially obsessed! I cannot deny the timelessness of film and I’m excited to pass that experience on to my clients. Their life moments deserve to transcend time.
BLUSHING ON LOVE. we love doing pre-wedding portrait shoots with our couples. not only is it a great way for them to get comfortable with us but also a great way to have sick photos for their walls that aren’t wedding photos. hair + makeup by ash for @loveandwolvesbeauty. magic captured by jake for @loveandwolvesco.
