'Ya'll, it has been a MINUTE!
Since my last blog, we've been through ALL THE THINGS. A social justice movement, a worldwide pandemic, Bennifer got married, an Olsen twin had a baby, Hailey + Selena caused a civil war amongst influencers, Starbucks prices went up (as well as ALL the other prices of everything, ever), TikTok dances took over the lives of pre-teens, skin care routines became top priority, Swifties spent all their monies on tickets to Taylor's EPIC Eras Tour (those of us that didn't will be swimming through our FOMO for the remainder of our lives), Kanye + Kim called it quits, women lost the rights to their bodies, Barbie took over the universe + I had the opportunity to work with + photograph SO MANY amazing couples, families, women, babies, business owners + just kick ass humans.
Needless to say, we have A LOT to catch up on.
First things first, I'd like to change things up around here. Rather than this blog being a recap of my sessions/weddings, I'd like this blog to strictly be a resource of creativity + art sharing for me. Somedays I may just write, others I may just share art. My entire career I've tried so hard to do what I was 'supposed' to do with things. I've shared my work/art to advertise, to hopefully gain clients. I haven't allowed the sharing of my work to be another step in my creative journey. Moving forward, I hope to allow this blog to be an extension of of my photography + self expression rather than a business tool.
I hope you'll join me on this ride + stop by to check it out once in a while.
For now, after feeling ALL the feels for the past 5 years, I'll leave you with this:
"feel what you feel
don't ever be
ashamed of that"
Big thanks to The Harmac (in Cedar Rapids, Iowa) for hosting this super fun engagement shoot!
We had the best time playing in your beautiful venue!
Jade + Shaun, y'all are everything.
Welcome to the place where you remember what it's like to be a child, to imagine, to dream. A place where true love, prince charming and happily ever afters really do exist. Take off your shoes, cuddle up with a cup of coffee and cozy blanket, and let us remind you that life is beautiful. It is kind. It is whimsical. It is delicate, and warm, and sometimes even miraculous. Please forget about the laundry, the dishes, the deadlines.
