Photography is the art of freezing a moment in time. Is the ability to revive that moment, take a closer look. Is the opportunity to look at the little things like this cute dragonfly. The colors and the details of his eyes. He was standing in the antenna of our motorcycle checking us out.
On October 24, we welcomed our two sweet baby girls into the world. Nora Llenae was born at 9:13 pm weighing 5 lbs 1.9 oz and Cleo Laine followed just 8 minutes later at 9:21 weighing 5 lbs 5.4 oz.
These past 7 weeks with the girls earthside have been the most beautiful, joy-filled, exhausting, and challenging weeks we’ve ever had. Even though the girls were only 2.5 weeks early, having premies has come with its own set of challenges.
God has proved He is faithful time and time again. We prayed for these sweet girls for so long. So many tears were shed as we waited for them. Tears have been shed since having them. Regardless, we are so blessed to now be a family of 4. 💕
Thank you Shelby Rooze, for capturing our sweet girls at just 9 days old!

Pokhara is a delightful lakeside town nestled in tightly at the foothills of the Himalaya. A picturesque yet run down place which oozes the charms of the old world invaded by the new. // The days following my Nepal Photo Tour were spent here resting, going slow, enjoying the weather, that so effortlessly mimicked my mood. Once you’ve tasted the mountains, you will understand how it both ruins you and inspires you in equal amounts; floating in my rowboat on this particular evening I understood this sentiment more than ever. 💕

When Mother Nature decides to switch things up and give us random stormy rainy evenings and your client decides to go for it and absolutely owns it... thunder lighting and all! ⛈💃🏼👸🏼

I turned 29 last week, and I felt so loved. So celebrated. My heart was full and bursting at the seams. ❤️ It was such a stark contrast to how my 28th year began, and I want to share an important milestone because I think it’s significant, for me anyway.
It’s been exactly one year since I hurt myself last. I’ve had struggles with self harm since I was a teenager, and when I started feeling incredibly anxious a few years ago, I started hurting myself again.
I still have a few scars from last year. You won’t even notice them. Most of them have faded away. But I see them. I remember the last time. I was on the floor, alone in my flat, tears wouldn’t stop, and my chest felt like exploding. I wanted to rip it out so it wouldn’t hurt anymore.
I don’t think I wanted to end my life. I just didn’t know how to move forward with all the pain.
It felt like drowning.
Can I encourage you today, one year on, that it does get better? I don’t even recognize the girl who hated herself and her feelings.
The days get brighter, and you’ll hear the birds sing again. You’ll dance in the car, you’ll feel the warmth of the sun on your skin. You’ll swim in salty seas as the sun sets slowly. You’ll sit on damp dewy sand as you watch the dawn.
You will know love again.
You are free to start over. Just like I did.
I put in the work, the hard yards. I was intentional about growth. I cried an ocean of tears. I saw my therapist regularly. I journaled, I created a healthier life and focused on myself and what was good for me. I started doing things that made me smile, that made me strong. I allowed myself to experience the love that friends so generously and graciously gave all year. One day at a time. One breath at a time.
I faltered throughout the year. I had thoughts. I still sometimes think and feel ugly things—and I just cry. I’m still afraid, and I still get anxious thoughts. But I know for a fact that I am enough, just as I am.
Happy one year to me. ❤️
Regen, regen, regen .. deshalb mal ein Sonnenfoto ❤️ Wie ist das Wetter bei euch zur Zeit?

You are going to scroll past and read all kinds of inspiring and extra insightful things today and this might not be one of those messages where you leave and you’re like YESSSS that feels so Christmasy 🤯😆 but it’s on my mind and I’ve shared variations before but it feels worth sharing again especiallyyyyy during this time of the year so here ya go: Social media is not everything and as humans we need to remember that. It’s designed to f with your psyche and creates something inside of us where we leave always wanting more... but more of what? It’s all intangible if you really think about it... I mean you can not touch, experience, smell or feel anything beyond the device you hold in your hands. And are those intangible things really important? And if it all went away would you be okay? I hope so. So when you start giving too many fs about a made up world that can be deleted with just one tiny click just remember that. Christmas time is the BEST time and what you can see and hear and smell and love on right in front of you will alwaysssss trump everything else. And this is possibly a gentle reminder for myself as well. That’s all. And here’s a picture I love love loveee. 🤗

God is not limited on how we can give Him glory or how His message gets across. The Holy Spirit moves in the supernatural & intelectual debates. In choirs, pulpits, the streets, homes, churches, grocery stores & creative spaces. You may see those who carry His Spirit wearing Suits, tunics or Jerseys. They may be young or old, black, white or brown. Some may worship Him in song for 3 hours, others for a “scheduled 30 min”. No one tribe has all the answers or is the “only one right”. The main common denominator is the posture should all be the same. This is the beauty of Christianity and I’m praying my heart & head catches up to my understanding ♥️ #LastWeekend#canon#ishootcanon#markiii#5dmarkiii#lightroom#worship#Christianity#ThePIaTour

This sweet boy 😍💙 — also I have a question for photographers 🤗 How involved are you in outfit styling for your sessions on a scale of 1-10? Do you give suggestions or do you just cross your fingers and hope for the best?! 😬 I would say I’m about an 8 involvement on a scale of 1-10. It’s rare I have clients show up and I have zero clue what they are wearing or the vibe they are going for and I don’t think I will ever waver from that but I’m curious about youuu! 💃🏼👖👕
