Emily and Jim // At Home

Yes I know...it's been a minute since I've blogged here. And by a minute...I mean months! Woops! There is a good reason for that and it's called life...life happened. I'm in month 18 of motherhood and with that has come so many life altering changes that I didn't necessarily expect and one of the things that has changed the most is my photography business. 

It is no secret that i've slowed down my work load substantially and I don't regret that one bit. I LOVE owning my own business. I LOVE photography. But you know what I love the most right here right now...I LOVE BEING A MOM. If I've learned anything so far in my 29 years of life, it's that you must you must you must pay attention to your heart and what sets it on fire. Right now that's being a mama to my sweet Elodie and I am soaking it up as much as possible. It's sad to be doing less client work here but I feel like I do way better work for the clients I do have which is the most important thing in the end. All that to say...THANK YOU for following my journey and continuing to do so even when I'm radio silent. I am still a photographer and I'm going to keep making art but on my terms and within the realms I can handle. 

WHOA! Sorry so personal. On to Emily and Jim! THESE SESSIONS! These sessions light my creative fire. I love doing in home sessions. They are so personal. There is something so magical about making photographs in such an intimate space. You all should do it...and call me because I will never grow tired of photographing these kind of sessions!

Liz and Aaron // Red Tail Farm

I know I know...you weren't expecting this but I blogged again! WHAT!? I'm shocked too :) But I wanted to take some time even though it is super busy to show you all this beautiful wedding. When life gets hectic, I have a bad habit of stressing out and binge watching Netflix to try and forget about my worries. Lately, I'm trying to immerse myself in the hectic and find every ounce of good in it as possible. Even though I have lots of photos to edit, I wanted to take this time to soak in this beautiful day and allow you all to as well. These kind of weddings are my absolute favorite to photograph. Simple details, laid back couple, and a perfect outdoor Indiana setting. When the rain was coming down that morning, not a single person showed an ounce of stress about it. When rain drops fell at the start of the ceremony, not a single person moved. And when the sun opened up as Liz walked down the aisle, you could feel the divine love that surrounded this couple and this day. All was well this day.
