A little salt and some sand...

This last week my family and I took a much needed family vacation! I worked a couple of jobs in the Myrtle Beach area, and spent the remainder of the week soaking up the sun, laughing with my boys, and just taking it all in. That is what life is all about right? 

How often do we get so carried away with the day to day that we forget to laugh, we forget to take time for cuddles, or kisses? Well, that had become our story. Being a small business owner and married to a professional firefighter/ small small owner himself our lives are always busy. Add in the two little boys, and two dogs... its controlled chaos. ;) 

But, this past week all of that disappeared, I was able to get to see my husband for 7 straight days, wake up beside him, go to sleep beside him, and as a family unit we all had an amazing time. 

Now, we are back, refreshed, and I'm pumped for the end of summer, and rolling into those Fall weddings, and family sessions that I love so much! Since your business directly supports my family, I figured I would share some photos from our vacation. Because of your support- this much needed trip was able to happen. So, thank you for supporting local, thank you for supporting small business, and thank you for supporting me. <3 

 

The A Family (Newborn)

Meet baby Declan! He is just the absolute sweetest little chunk, and it was such a blessing being able to photograph his newborn session with the family. Little babies are such a blessing, and watching this family work together as they adjust to their newest little member was such a joy!

The Lemings Family (Summer 2018)

I just absolutely LOVE working with sweet families like the Lemings! I have had the pleasure of working with Nathan & Alex since their oldest was turning one, so to be able to capture the same milestone for their second child was such a sweet honor.
