“You’re pretty much my most favorite of all time in the history of ever.”-unknown

Backstreet in Shibuya

The world is big and I want to have a good look at it before it gets dark . . .

Let’s talk about mistakes we make in our business more than once. Mine? It’s overbooking myself. Taking on more than I can chew and leaving myself sleep deprived and grouchy. Then I get through it, I succeed and promise myself I’ll never do it again. But here I am, five years into my business and one or two months every year I do it again. (Sound familiar?!) I get sucked into the, “well Suzy down the road photographs this often and she’s got like 6 kids” comparison game. So if she can do it, so can I. But guys, I can’t. I mean I can, I just don’t like who I am when I do it. I’m overwhelmed, waking up with to do lists racing through my brain. I’m forgetful, not remembering if Jinx got her afternoon cookie or if I even ate lunch. So I’m just here to remind you all that while things can be possible, you don’t necessarily need to do the possible. I don’t want to glorify busy on my feed, or compare my highlight reels to her highlight reels. So know right now that my busy doesn’t entirely mean success, it actually just means I failed super hard at keeping my boundaries in check with my work life balance this month.

I read once that the ancient Egyptians had fifty words for sand and the Eskimos had fifty words for snow. I wish I had a thousand words for love, but all that comes to mind is the way you move against me while you sleep... and there are no words for that. - Brian Andreas • #quotes #blackandwhitephotography

Just dropped off photos for these awesome people today! Getting to deliver things all finished up to couples is one of my favorite parts of shooting weddings. #kodakfilm #portra400 #weddingsonfilm #weddingphotography

You've decided to book a boudoir session! That's fantastic!!! These session are truly more for YOU than they are for the man in your life. These sessions are incredibly empowering. Everybody is different, and everybody is beautiful. For your session make sure to wear the clothes that you not only feel confident in, but accent your incredible body. There are so many decadent varieties of bra/panty combos that would be perfect. Not certain what to wear, bring a few different outfits that you love and as your photographer I will be able to help you find the best look and pose ideas to suit you. These sessions can be done in a studio, in your home or even in a private and secluded space outdoors. I make every effort to provide a safe space to create the images that you will be thrilled with. We are totally going to celebrate YOU!!

Leslie and Jon were married at the gorgeous @emeraldlakelodge with their ten immediate family members as their witnesses. After their ceremony we wandered around the lake, scroll back a few posts to see their canoe ride on the lake! I love this moment as we headed to dinner, the layers of Leslie’s gorgeous dress, Jon holding her flowers, and of course the gorgeous Emerald Lake beside them. ❤️
