Our family Captured.

After all the craziness of traveling every weekend and photographing weddings,  we finally had time to go out and take some family pictures.  It seems harder and harder to do this but it is so important to us.  I will be forever grateful for this special time in our life.  By no means is my family perfect, and we definitely have our good days, bad days, ups and downs but having our personalities captured is my favorite.  I hope to send a Christmas card this year, but here are a few of my favorites from the day.

Lyla turned 3 in October and she is my socialite.  She loves people and everyone is her friend. She loves jewelry, singing and all things princess. She is strong and so much fun. Her imagination is full and her detail to beauty is such a delight.  She doesn’t love having her picture taken and would rather be climbing trees or playing with friends.  Lucca,  my little sweet girl, is 19 months.  She stole our hearts from day one.  She is a bit shy and enjoys being in my arms.  Her heart is soft and sensitive to the core.  We love being parents and so blessed by our girls. Not a day goes by that we realize their true blessing. Brent and I are doing great and have had an incredible year. Starting our photography business in 2010 was the best thing. We went after a dream together and it taught us so many things about one another. We never dreamt we would be so blessed and it really is such a joy we get to do what we love.  I love watching him while we work and shine in the midst of people. He truly loves being with others and it is when he becomes so alive.   He has taught me to love deep more than I ever new how.

We are so excited for this new year to come. Launching a new business soon { which you can only find on Instagram @worldsgreatestco  for now}  and dreaming of new adventures with our family.  With the holidays coming so soon, my prayer and hope is to enjoy this season to the fullest… especially with the ones you love. xo

  • Just found your blog through the Wiegand’s link up and oh my word what a sweet little family you have!! I love all of the photos, so gorgeous and heartfelt.

    I am currently thinking about taking the next step in my own photography in the new year. I love that you and your husband started a business together, my husband and I are shooting our first wedding together next summer. I have a long way to go until then but I’m committed to getting better and better 🙂

    I look forward to following along more on your little space!ReplyCancel
