Surround yourself with things you love

A little while back, Brooke Schultz came to our home to capture our lives as they are now. I had really wanted some photos of our life as a little family in our first home. However, the excuses kept getting in the way. "Our house is never clean, there are still some projects I want to finish, I could still lose some more weight..." the list of "reasons" could go on forever if I let it. Finally, I just broke down and wrote to Brooke.

When she came into our (still not very clean) house, she instantly made us feel comfortable. I've worked with Brooke a few times, and my favorite thing about her is her genuine nature that makes your time in front of the camera feel natural instead of posed. So that's what we did. We just lived. Played toys with Greyson, rolled around on the bed, ate a snack, went for a walk. All the while, Brooke was capturing beautiful photos.

When I saw them for the first time, I couldn't keep the tears from my eyes. How beautiful our life is! I spend my time styling photo shoots and weddings, making sure every detail is lovely and "perfect," but Brooke found the perfection in our everyday imperfection. I feel so blessed to have these so I can always reflect on how amazing our simple life is now.
