I love capturing beautiful portraits, but candid images will always be my fav. I absolutely loved how cute this moment was between Pamela and Rick when it started pouring rain during their engagement session. . . . . #charleston #southcarolina #charlestonsc #love #photography #lowcountry #travel #chs #southernliving #southerncharm #fashion #explorecharleston #nature #interiordesign #charlestonwedding #lowcountryliving #charlestonphotographer #beach #charlestonlife #atlanta #chucktown #northcarolina #home #sc #art #ootd #photooftheday #holycity #sunset #discoversc at Charleston, South Carolina

Happy Friday y’all! It has been a rough week to say the least for me. My husband has been out of town and you don’t realize how much the parenting and household workload is divided until you’re left doing 100% if it. . . So with running around like a chicken with its head cut off, my technology issues have continued. Technology is so helpful, most of the time, but we rely so heavily on it that when it fails we are left with our hands tied. . . I am happy to say that this morning things are running smooth (knock on wood) and toddler is calm (knock on wood again) so fingers crossed, that I am able to make a dent in my workload this morning. . . #styledengagement #engagement #engaged #proposal #nauticalengagement #charlestonengagement #charlestonengagementphotographer #engagementphotographer #weddingphotographer #charlestonweddingphotographer #charlestonwedding #savannahphotographer #newlyengaged #couplegoals #gettingmarried #marrigeproposal #momentsovermountains #photographer #misstomrs #soontobemrs #carolinabride #charlestonbride #bridetobe #bride #howheasked #romance #emmalilibride #thisisus #charlotteweddingphotographer at Emma Lili Photography

Too cute not to post. Today I had the pleasure of getting together with a couple of amazing gals to put together our 2019 vision boards. Of course we needed a photo of all three of us, so Noah of course jumped on the job ( at least I let him think he was on the job). But seriously look at how focused he is! . . . #mommyhood #workfromhomemom #momprenuer #momgoals #bestgoals2019 #therisingtidesociety #risingtidesociety #workingonme #homegoals #goalsud83dude0d #goalsgoalsgoals #charlestonforlife #charlestonscene #charlestonliving #charlestonsouthcarolina #boymommy #boymomproblems #mommasboyud83dudc99 #charlestonmoms #southernmom #southernmomma #letthembekids #letthemplayoutside #theyreonlylittleonce #busytoddler #toddlerhair #toddlermomlife #mybeautifulworld #charlestonportraitphotographer #charlestonphotographer at West Ashley, Charleston

Being a Colorado native I will always be in love with Colorado’s scenery. It does make me a little sad that we moved before I had a chance to photograph more in Colorado, but I am beyond blessed to still be able for to visit and do sessions in my beautiful home state. I am even more excited, because when my husband gets home we can finalize our plans for our next trip this Spring/Summer! . Keep an eye out early next week for our travel dates! . . . . . . #coloradoliving #coloradogram #coloradophotographer #coloradowedding #coloradorockymountains #coloradogirl #coloradonative #coloradonatives #lovecolorado #coloradoweather #coloradoweddingphotographer #coloradoengagementphotographer #denverphotographer #denverlife #denverco #denverweddingohotographer #coweddingphotographer #lovemountains #redrocksamphitheater #gardenofthegods #coloradoscenery #bridetobe2019 #coloradobride #theknotcolorado #coloradoweddingvenue #coloradoweddingplanner #coloradophotographerlife #coloradosmallbusiness #coloradogirlsdoitbetter #coloradolovin at Centennial, Colorado

“Yes” a word overused by me, an agreement to do something that I really should have said no to. . I have committed to myself, to say yes to things that matter and no to things that don’t. To take charge and start to cultivate my intentional life. . 2019 things I will say yes to more...first and foremost myself. I have let my health and well being take the back burner for years, telling myself that an email is more important than doing something for me, because I don’t want to upset someone. But this year I have allotted time for emails and I will take care of myself, I will go to the gym, I will eat right, sleep enough, get my hair done and a pedicure when I want. I will say yes to myself. . I will say yes to my family. I will put my family before work I will say yes when Noah wants to play. When Luke wants me to join them outside. I will say yes to being present and enjoying the moment with them, and let go of distractions. . I will say yes to new experiences and getting outside more. . 2018 I will say no to beating myself up over literally everything. . No to people who are not true friends and do not share the same intentions of our friendship. . No to being perfect, and having to do it all. . No to unhealthy habits and unhealthy relationships. . In 2019 I am choosing to cultivate over keeping up. . #atlantaweddingphotographer #atlantaweddings #charlestonwedding #charlestonweddingphotographer #savannahweddingphotographer #savannahwedding #coloradoweddingphotographer #tennesseeweddingphotographer #tennesseeweddings #neworleanswedding #neworleansweddingphotographer #destinationweddingphotographers #travelingweddingphotographer #fitnessgoals2019 #bestgoals2019 #communityovercompetition #momentsovermountains #arizonaweddingphotographer #newyorkweddingphotographer #ohioweddingphotographer #virginaweddingphotographer #richmondweddingphotographer #charlestonblogger #charlestonbride #risingtidesociety #cultivatewhatmatters #calledtobeacreative #bossgirls #crushinggoals #bebetterthanyesterday at west of the Ashley - Charleston, SC

🚨CUTENESS ALERT 🚨 I interrupt your nightly scroll with this cutie pie! Noah is now the proud owner of all of the PJ Masks costumes and when I say proud he is very proud! . My son loves to dress up and I love that it makes him happy. I don’t care that it isn’t Halloween or he isn’t going to a costume party, he loves it and makes him happy so it makes me happy. . They’re only young once, and before I know it he will be an adult and these are the moments I will miss the most! . ➡️ swipe to see more cuteness of his entire collection of PJ Masks. . . . #mommyhood #workfromhomemom #momprenuer #momgoals #bestgoals2019 #therisingtidesociety #risingtidesociety #commubityovercompetition #workaholics #workingonme #homegoals #goalsud83dude0d #goalsgoalsgoals #charlestonforlife #charlestonscene #charlestonliving #charlestonsouthcarolina #boymommy #boymomproblems #mommasboyud83dudc99 #charlestonmoms #southernmom #southernmomma #letthembekids #letthemplayoutside #theyreonlylittleonce #busytoddler #toddlerhair #toddlermomlife #mybeautifulworld at Shadowmoss Plantation Golf Club

When deciding what matters and what doesn’t matter it is easy, what matters most is my son and husband and being a good wife and mother. . Let me be honest and say it, this is not always the easiest for me. It’s not easy, because I am not only a perfectionist, but it is my nature to be a workaholic. So I am always trying to do everything and be perfect at it at the same time. . My career will always be important to me, but my family will always come first. I have set many goals for 2019, but my number one goal this year is to work on me. To become a better mother and wife, to have more patience and to not allow my anxiety and stress to ruin everyday moments with those who matter most, like this little boy right here. . Today I have my to do list and I am going to complete my top three priorities, but I’m not going to kill my self trying to get it all done today. I am going to take time to drive around the block 210 times with Noah and his new wheels and sit down and play cars with him, play make believe and enjoy being in the moment. . Ps. That’s Pup Pup in the passenger seat, buckled of course and his bff since he was born. Someday I’ll have to tell you all about the adventures of Pup Pup and the time be made a trip across country without us lol. . . . . . . #mommyhood #workfromhomemom #momprenuer #momgoals #bestgoals2019 #therisingtidesociety #risingtidesociety #commubityovercompetition #workaholics #workingonme #homegoals #goals😍 #goalsgoalsgoals #charlestonforlife #charlestonscene #charlestonliving #charlestonsouthcarolina #boymommy #boymomproblems #mommasboy💙 #charlestonmoms #southernmom #southernmomma #letthembekids #letthemplayoutside #theyreonlylittleonce #busytoddler #toddlerhair #toddlermomlife #mybeautifulworld at Shadowmoss Plantation Golf Club

Happy Monday everyone! It was an early morning getting my husband to the airport, but that just means I can get a head start on my to do list. . I don’t know about you, but I have to write my to do’a down. I know with technology these days this can all be done on phones and apps but just like books I just can’t do it electronically. . Anyone else the same way? . #styledengagement #engagement #engaged #proposal #nauticalengagement #charlestonengagement #charlestonengagementphotographer #engagementphotographer #weddingphotographer #charlestonweddingphotographer #charlestonwedding #savannahphotographer #newlyengaged #couplegoals #gettingmarried #marrigeproposal #momentsovermountains #photographer #misstomrs #soontobemrs #carolinabride #charlestonbride #bridetobe #bride #howheasked #romance #emmalilibride #thisisus #charlotteweddingphotographer at Charleston International Airport
