Cincinnati Music Photographer:: Bunbury Music Festival:: Belle Histoire

What’s that?
Oh, nothing, just my BACKSTAGE PASS
You know, no big deal.
I mean, it’s not like I mingled and mixed with the likes of
(*nodding head* YES IT IS… IT’S JUST LIKE THAT!!!)
Ok, ok, so maaaaaybe I was in the same place at the same time as these people…
BUT – the best show of the day?
No contest::
They started their show on a beautiful afternoon in July,
one of the city’s warmest and driest months,  ever.
However, no sooner than they started the show,
the drought conditions we had been experiencing for months,
chose that exact time to change…. folks, it poured rain and thunderstormed like you wouldn’t believe.

But, these fans…. they are the best fans.
They stayed and sang through the rain,
and even after the festival shut down the show, they waited.

The waiting paid off.
Because Belle Histoire is so super fantastic,
they appreciated the loyalty by performing a
surprise little acoustic ditty (I have no idea if I’m using that phrase right)
while they waited for the stage to be dried.

The sang, they danced, they got the all-clear to return to the stage,
and they put on one heck of a show.

Thank you, a million times, thank you.
I hope you understand how amazing it has been to be able to do this for you,
and how grateful I’ve been to experience your journey up close.
You’re going far, kids.
I can’t wait!

  • I’m sharing more photos of her than I usually intend to, but I love who she is right now, and I love documenting that via Instagram (I’ve tried other apps but haven’t found one where I can keep photos/captions easily accessible like this - any suggestions?).
She’s 2.5, and she says SO much. She tells stories, sings songs (baby “ayuga,” worship music, and her “abcd’s” are her favorites), and gives us her opinion regularly. 🥴😂 Her favorite foods are pizza and “treats,” her favorite dress is the one with the pockets, and her favorite color is black (definitely my child 🖤😂). She loves wearing “neskits”
(necklaces) and eating chicken “nusgits,” she knows where to go for “Winnie’s donuts” with sugars (sprinkles) and where to get “momma’s coffees” (ok so maybe we go to @dunkin a little too often 🍩🤷🏻‍♀️), and she knows exactly where @bassproshops is. Her favorite thing to do is to go see “the fishies” - she has even named a few, and she knows exactly which is which. 🐟
Just like any toddler, she’s a sponge and soaks up and remembers every little thing she hears. She recounts things to us from weeks earlier, and can recall details that even Shane and I have long forgotten. She knows her letters, colors, and shapes, and has even started to understand phonics and simple math a little. She blows our minds every day.
We are thankful every second of every day. These last few months have been a little trying for her daddy and me, but this tiny one truly is our sunshine. Our favorite time every day is right before bed when we sit down with her bible, and she tells us about Noah, Jonah, John (“he had a big, bushy beard!”), and most importantly, Jesus. No matter our circumstances, this girl is a light and a reminder of what is good every single day. ♥️

  • I took a few quick photos of our girl in her Easter dress before church tonight. It was cold and rainy out, so we took advantage of this small pocket of light inside the house. This was one I shot while I was adjusting my settings, and I feel like it tells a story fitting of this weekend - we were lost in darkness, but the light is coming. 🌤
