Thanks again Jessica for asking me to be a part of your wedding journey! It was seriously one of my ALL TIME FAVORITES! Stay tuned everyone, because I plan on doing an even BIGGER post about the amazing-ness of her wedding SOON. ;)

Ahhhhhh – Haley’s bridal session.

Guys, let me start with giving you a little background. Towards the end of February, I was in a major funk. I was at the peak of my season business-wise, in the middle of what seemed like 42 holidays, I was only a couple weeks out from an evaluation at my other job (teaching), annnnddd I had a respiratory infection that just would not go away. I was tired and run down and questioning everything.

“How can I keep doing this?” “Can I really have two jobs and retain my love for both?” “Is all of this really worth not having time off for friends, family, me?” 

Then this session happened. 

I was very excited to head to a new location to photograph one of my favorite clients – and bridals no less (one of my faves)! On the way there, as always, I prayed for safety driving and a smooth- flowing session. I also, however, prayed for a sign. I wanted – no, I needed – some sort of confirmation that I was on the right path… going in the right direction.

God gave me just that.

This session was exactly what I need to remind me about my feelings. I never doubted that I loved my job, I always knew that (DUH!). But, I was starting to let doubt creep in as to whether or not I could keep going full speed ahead with all of the irons that I currently have in the fire. This bridal shoot was the ultimate sign for me that I can and should.

I am so thankful to have been given this talent. I am so thankful to have these clients. I am so thankful to have this job. I am trusted with people’s most precious moments and memories. This is why I take so much thought and care in what I do. Yes, this can be overwhelming at times when also balancing life – but I would take exciting / overwhelming / joyous adventures to mundane safety and routine any day. What can I say, I love the chaos. 

Anyway – Thank you Haley & Co for giving me such a wonderful, creative, and refreshing session! It was just what I needed, just when I needed it. And I hope you guys had a blast as well. :)

Here are just a few of the highlights from what was (hands-down) one of my all-time favorite sessions:
