there are a few things in life that i love. ok maybe a little bit more than a few. today i love being a mom and a wedding photographer. they both go hand in hand for me. my being a wedding photographer allows me to be able to be home with my angel daughters and be there for all of their special moments in life. and being a mom, opens my eyes to other people and all of their special moments. it is all about those everyday moments that one wishes to remember forever. i am so lucky to be there to capture them for so many incredible people.
i have really struggled lately with finding my passion in photography again. by that i don’t mean the wedding side of things because i still truely feel the passion there, but i mean the personal side of photography. i have found myself more and more leaving my camera at home because “it is too much hassle to bring it” or “i have so much other work to do that i won’t have time to edit them”. i have given myself a challenge to take more “personal” pictures because there are lots of moments in my life and the life of my kids that i never ever want to forget!!! do you find any excuse you can to leave your camera at home? well if you do, then i challenge all of you to take it with you more often and embrace the moments in your life that you never want to forget!
this is emilee and justin. i met emilee at the bridal show back in january! don’t these two have incredible style!?! and not only that, they were so fun and up for anything! we shot these all out at salt air and the salt flats. it was so much fun!! if there is anything i love it is new locations. i had never shot out there before and loved it!! emilee and justin met about 4 years ago when she was hanging out with his friends. she does hair, which isn’t a big surprise since her hair is amazing!!! wow! maybe i am in the wrong proffesion these guys were so cute together and totaly knew how to work the camera! they made my job WAY too easy!! thanks for an amazing time emilee and justin and i can’t wait for your bridals and wedding!!
