another year, another birthday post

These are some of my favorite photos of you. They’re from months ago, when we froze our tails off shooting a proposal. But these snowy images show off who you are – someone who sacrifices a rare day off to stand in the snow while I work. And who does it without thinking twice about it. You’re the greatest I know, and I’m beyond lucky/blessed/whatever the kids call it these days. I’m just so happy to be yours and to celebrate another year with you. Winnie and I love you beyond the capacity to understand. Happy birthday.

it’s a little sappy, and there’s more of that sappiness here

  • I’ve shared this before, but it’s on my heart again tonight, so here goes...
If you don’t like it, stop doing it. ✋🏻 There are sessions I don’t shoot anymore, simply because it wasn’t fun or fulfilling for me. I would rather have a client choose a different photographer and know they are getting someone who specializes in what they need, instead of shooting it myself and becoming exhausted and burnt out from it. Learning to say no and to refer clients is one of the best things I’ve done for my business (and my well-being). Sure, the money is great, but what happens when you’re over-worked and frustrated and taking these things out on your family and friends who you never see because you’re chasing that dollar? 💰 Learn to say no, learn what makes it work for you, and learn to value yourself in a way that makes saying no worth it and easier.
.
And for the record, Fresh 48 sessions are my faaaavorites, and I will almost always say YES to these. ☺️🖤

  • curiosity, fascination, and an incredible ability to ignore mom as she begs for a sweet smile 🙈😂

  • Halloween, 2019 🎃🦇🕸 swipe 👉🏻 for her Halloween costume - this photo was actually snapped for a trunk-or-treat on 10•23•2019 (we skipped the real trick-or-treat this year ⛄️😬🙈). Winnie dressed as one of her favorite people, her poppy (my dad)
