5 Things I'm Finally Sharing Outloud

  • Our Dreams

Sometimes I have a problem with taking my own advice. I tell my coaching gals to blog and openly proclaim their CRAZY dreams and yet I have NEVER done a post about what I envision for my business. HYPOCRITE! There is SO much value in sharing what you are hoping for and striving for but there is also a great risk. If I tell you some of the goals I have for my business and openly share my dreams….what happens if they NEVER come true. How embarrassing right? I think it’s that fear of failure and not meeting my own standards that I have set for myself that has kept me from writing this post. After my first year in business

A Georgetown Waterfront Engagement

  • Hector + Kathryn | Engaged

in college, I remember my roommate Britney being really REALLY excited that her baby sister Kathryn would be coming to CNU! She was excited for Kathryn to meet amazing people and fall in love with the campus as much as she did. As time went on, I distinctly remember the first time I heard about Kathryn and Hector. Britney was talking with all of us at “house time” one night and mentioned “I think Kathryn really likes Hector.” Being college girls we all said “awwwww…” but I looking back now, that was such a big season of their life.

A Wedding at The Mill at Fine Creek

  • Joseph + Perrin

As soon as I met them at their engagement session, I knew that they were one of those couples that came into our lives for a reason. We were over booked for this year but we still had this past Sunday available. Joe and Perrin’s wedding just happened to be right the middle of our craziest season… #9 of 19 weddings in a row. Any photographer would admit that in the middle of a long stretch, you need something to inspire you and renew your love for your work…. Joe and Perrin’s wedding did just that. Their love for one another and everyone’s deep love for them was so thick in the air, you could feel it. These two have such an incredible story and contagious joy. As Michael and I photographed their amazing wedding day, I kept turning to him and saying “Don’t you just love them?!”.
