GUYS! These two and their bright, beautiful, perfect day are up on the blog and I think you should go look because I just love it and they’re perfect and I’m not crying you’re crying and run on sentences are bad but I don’t care so just go have a look!
ALL. THE. GOODIES. When I walked into this reception hall my pregnant self got super envious of the wedding guests 😂 this dessert spread is the bomb. What’s your dream dessert spread for your wedding? For me, it was about 50 pies baked with love by my grandmas ❤️☺️ captured this “sweet” moment while second shooting for @savannahpetersonphotography
The idea that we have to “believe in” or “hope for” miracles is total hooey.
Because miracles already happen every day. Every minute. All the time.
They’re more frequent than the breaths you take.
This isn’t even a spiritual perspective. It’s just The Truth.
Miracle: root- “to wonder at, marvel, be astonished.”
There are about a million things in your own living room right now that are worth marveling at.
The atoms. The molecules that make up the wood in your end tables. All the experiences those molecules had to have to become wood in your end table.
The way the light from a fireball millions of miles away gleams its way through the window panes and reaches the skin on your face and sends sensations of warmth across your cheeks....Just to name a few.☺️
The ONLY reason people don’t see that miracles are occurring in every moment is because their mind is seeing through the belief system of scarcity. .
Get out of that belief system. Clear the mind up. Boom- you’ll see miracles every damn day too. ⚡️❤️
YOU are the miracle.
Life is the miracle. .
The fact that stars exploded billions of years ago, formed specific molecules that recycled through billions of years of evolution and came together to create this body you live in?
Miraculous. Something to marvel at.
OUT OF ALL OF THE POSSIBLE OUTCOMES, that could have arisen in 14 billion years....here YOU are. Alive and breathing and reading this post.
You are living inside a miracle. And you ARE the miracle at the same time. Every day. .
You don’t really have to believe. All you have to do is see clearly.⚡️
Stelles first breast milk bath. She’s getting a little too big for her flower bath. Yesterday I couldn’t stop starring at her. I can’t believe how much she’s changed and grown in the last few weeks. It makes me emotional just thinking about it. They say having a baby changes you and it totally has. Who knew I could love anything more then my dog and cat?! 😂 I can’t imagine how I’ll be at her first birthday...😭
Don't make fun of us, but sometimes when we see a really stunning detail photo (like this one by the talented @senecaryanco), we make up an imaginary album spread in our heads for it to fit in. We can't help it! It's one of the unspoken dangers of being obsessed with albums! 😳
How do you even sum up what was the most amazing workshop experience ever in an Instagram post?! I don’t know, but I’m going to try.
@katelynjames truly has a gift. A gift that makes you feel her heart as she speaks. A gift of somehow even though your in the midst of one of your idols, making you feel comfortable and welcomed. A gift of teaching and teaching VERY well, to where you could listen to her all day everyday!! A gift of showing who she really is and being so genuine, even if that means talking about the hardest times in her life of loosing sweet baby James. And so so much more.
I sat there each day making sure to soak everything in. Looking around and really trying to burn all of this in my brain. Every laugh, every smell, every tear and every bite of @emilymalizia ‘s amazing meals. And I know as time goes on there will be little things on these two days that I might forget happened. Which I think is why it makes it so hard to accept that it’s over. And makes me even cry just thinking about this.
But through all of what I may forget, I will NEVER forget how I felt each day. Excited, truly happy, and like a dream had really come true.
Thank you @katelynjames , to you and your family! For welcoming us into your home and creating such a warm, loving, and educational environment!! You’ll never know how much all you do truly means to me. 💛

Fall evenings in Annapolis are gorgeous! I loved meeting Katie and Shawn today for their engagement session. They're getting married in their home state of Iowa, but wanted their engagement photos in the city that they currently call home! Congratulations, Katie and Shawn! #christaraephotography
