Today was the first day in so long that I had absolutely nothing planned to do. I spent the morning working on some stuff I’m going to be releasing Monday (!!!!!!), I edited some, and then hung out with a good friend. We visited an alpaca farm that was having a Christmas celebration and then watched a beautiful sunset 🌞🌞🌞 such a great and relaxing day. I hope everybody else’s Saturday was as good was as today was for me.
fall in new york- I AM HERE FOR IT. ❤️❤️❤️
there is something magical about it- the wind scattering the leaves, the fifty degree weather, everyone clutching their coffee while scarlet, gold, and orange leaves fall around them. I mean YES X100000
all the basic white girls say HEYYY🙋♀️🙋♀️🙋♀️🙋♀️
but really- exploring brooklyn with these two was the best time. this is their rooftop and it was all rooftop #goalz, ever. we were able to look across the city as the sun set over the skyline 😍😍😍
I love my people in oklahoma, but DANG- those new york views in november just can’t be beat.
happy saturday all- go find a magical view today✨
A little preview of one of THE SWEETEST weddings ever! 😍✨
Hannah + Clifford were married earlier this month in Four Hills. It was especially fun shooting for them because Bryne was the Officiant for their wedding! 😍
It is tons of fun getting to do weddings together! After the ceremony I made him my assistant which usually just means the holder of my things. 😂 But he is the best at it!
Today’s post features Renee and her beautiful princess dress. So jaw dropping & absolutely gorgeous. Literally everyone had the same reaction when we finally saw her put it on. She was freakin STUNNING ✨
Fall minis are HERREEEE! Yay!
This is going to be a busy weekend but so worth it! I love my mini sessions because I get to meet all these new families. Like how freaking cute are they? 😍
Crazy but I have a spot open tonight at 4:10 if anyone would like to snag it up. DEETZ: 20 min / $150 / Oceanside ❤️
Happy Saturday friends!!❤️

I am a sentimental person. I value tradition, I love immersing myself in nostalgia, I hate change.
Growing up, the holidays were my favorite. Every year I knew exactly how it would play out, I knew exactly when dinners were- where we went, who came over, what time we ate, what movies we watched. I knew I would wake up and watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade or the Walt Disney World Christmas parade and wait for the pancakes to be done.
For the first time in 22 years, the holidays look a lot different for me.
2018 has been a year of change, of adjustment. And as the holidays draw near I feel this final chapter of change approaching and I’m nervous.
I’m nervous to watch the old escape without so much of a warning, a goodbye. But I’m excited for the new stuff. I’m excited to make new traditions to carry out every year and I’m excited to experience my first holiday unlike any of the others.
So tis the season for one last chapter of adjustment and change in 2018.
••So in 6 weeks the biggest and scariest adventure of my life begins. I’ll be letting go of all security, of everything that is sure and testing my career and trust in life. And if I’m being fully honest as much as I am super excited I am also terrified!
My career has exploded in the last 2 years. I have never been so happy with my life, never been so sure of what I’ve wanted to do and never eared so much money(finally enough to live and enjoy life). And I’m letting it all go. Don’t get me wrong I will still be doing photography full time but there is no guarantee that I will be able to find work on the road. I don’t know where my next jobs are coming as of January or where my next pay check is coming from. And it’s scary, I’m not gonna lie. -
So why do this? Why put this stress on myself and my career? Why sell everything and live with less? Why give up all that is secure and feels like home? -
Because life is more than just making great money, I mean I’m literally making the best money of my life yet it doesn’t feel any different, it feels the same. Life is more than doing the same thing everyday because we are too scared to try something new. Life is more than doing what you think you’re supposed to do to get successful. Life is about living not surviving. -
So I’m choosing to try something new. Something that inspires me to my core. Something that will push me to wake up everyday and have no idea what my day will end like, who I will meet, who I’ll work with and what I’ll see and experience. I choose to learn about and explore new places, to go outside of my comfort zone and see what is out there. We are taught our whole life to live inside of a box and think and dream reasonably but what if there is more? -
Well I’m determined to find out what’s out there and see if there is more. And what’s the worst that can happen? I travel for a while, make no money, meet awesome people, grow, learn and normal life will always be there if it doesn’t work. I can always go back to what I did before. I built my business from the ground up, I know exactly how I did it and it wasn’t easy. But I know if I have to I can do it again. Here goes nothing!••
