5 Mental Reminders for Photographers on Wedding Days

  • Ask Anything

Wedding season is upon us! It feels like spring outside and so maybe that’s what inspired this post! I start shooting again at the end of April, and I’m so excited about it! I’ve had a break since November and even though we’ve had some MAJOR life events happen those few months off, I’m ready to get back to work again! Moving, having a baby and being surprised by an emergency surgery have made me so grateful for this season where we committed to slow down! Slowing down does a lot of good for the mind AND the heart. And this is true not only in seasons of life but it’s also true on a day-to-day basis!

Evy’s First Month

It’s hard to believe, but we have a one month old baby! Everyone always talks about how fast these first few months fly by and so I’m trying really hard to enjoy every moment with this sweet girl. She makes it easy! This past month has been hard but it hasn’t been as hard as we had imagined. We were prepared for getting no sleep because that is what everyone told us to expect, but that span only lasted through half of week two! She started sleeping 4-5 hours at night and then eventually 6-8 hours! It’s wonderful!! We are SO THANKFUL!

You may have heard…. we had a baby! Who hasn’t heard? I feel like that’s all we’ve been talking about the last 3 weeks since Everly entered the world! We love her, and we love being her parents! We also LOVE taking pictures of her! One of the most stressful things that I’ve encountered in preparing for our first baby was figuring out how I want to document her life! I know that sounds silly…. and trivial even… but it’s true.
