The air feels a lot like water, crushing and heavy in a way that can't quite be explained, but you know exactly how I mean. You kick your legs against the dragging weight and reach your fingers out towards a surface that promises your lungs a silvery and sweet taste of freedom that they yearn for. You keep reaching, keep grasping...always reaching, hoping your fingers break the surface before your lungs welcome the oncoming water, like an old friend and the weight feels less like a burden, and more like a relief 🌾 / ld
Kylie's senior session is in the final stretch of being all finished & her images will be delivered very soon! This blog is currently being put together so here is a little sneak-peek of some summer goodness that took place Sunday evening! Thank goodness for the collage option because I was seriously struggling to figure out which one to put up. It's like having to pick between cake, cookies, & doughnuts. In the long run, I just end up eating all three 🤷🏼♂️🍰🍪🍩
I've got 3 meet ups with potential bride and grooms, 2 physical therapy appointments and a whole lot of law + order svu standing between me and my first session back in the game with a precious baby bump! I'm ready for this week to go by now.
Today my best friend treated me to my first pedicure since I was in high school (that's like 8 years 😳) Sometimes it's nice to take a step back and spend quality time with people you love. Make sure you take a break this week and do that.
CALLING ADVENTUROUS ENGAGED COUPLES:
I've learned that the only way to accomplish your dreams is to go after them at full force, even if people think you're crazy. This year I have had the chance to work with some amazing couples in the Michigan area and even Spain. But your girl wants more. More adventure, more of the world and ultimately the chance to meet some rad, adventurous couples who maybe want to elope or get married somewhere epic.
So if that sounds like you, send me a message. I would love the chance to get to know you and make all of your dreams come true as well as my own! Know someone who would be interested, tag them below! Social media is powerful and I know this can happen 🙌🏼
When the bridal party lines up for the recessional and they all head out of the ceremony taking shots, you know you're in for one hell of a night! Only a few more days until I'm celebrating with my couples again. Cheers to that! 🙌🏼
Boldly I approach your throne / Blameless now I'm running home / By your blood I come, welcomed as your own / Into the arms of majesty
The long hours of culling + editing can defeat my soul some days. Today, though, as I sing these words over Alec + Karina, I remember the opportunity I have in these quiet moments. I petition on behalf of their marriage --- the beautiful, sovereign, holy covenant they have chosen to enter into; Through the bliss + the stormy, through the plenty + the want. These two know the unmeasurable grace, the radical joy, + the relentless pursuit that overflows from our Father. And because of that, I pray that their marriage will be a clear + bold reflection of the relationship Christ has for his Church.
