“Joy comes to us in ordinary moments. We risk missing out when we get too busy chasing down the extraordinary.” -Brene Brown

Ain’t that the truth? There have been times in my life when I have wished the days away because I had something coming up on the calendar that I was excited about. That’s no way to live though, at least not for me. I’m challenging myself to live more in the moment, and to feel more joy in the ordinary, sometimes monotonous everyday life.

In other news, this beautiful family was a dream to photograph. This is my sweet friend, whom I don’t see nearly enough, so it was amazing to document a little bit of her beautiful family for her.

I pour my heart and soul into my work, and I hope that my clients can feel that. Every picture I give them feels like it has a little piece of me etched into it, and it’s hard not to get too emotionally attached.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the beauty wrapped up in these ordinary moments.
