I got to snuggle this little baby bean this past weekend and I already miss her! She was perfect during her photoshoot and even cracked a smile! Julia Paige, you are so loved by so many people already. I can't wait to smooch you again soon! ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ #happybirthday ๐Ÿ“ธ: @writstudio

My biffle had her baby! Welcome to the world, little peanut. ๐Ÿ’œ Can't wait to meet you this weekend! #baby #littlepeanut #yaaaaay

Dear @heathergillin and @yung_kurt_cobain, I'm never giving your dog back. Kthxbai. โค #murphy #puppers #doggo #cuddlebug #lotsofsurprisekisses #andbarking

I can be an overly sentimental person. I know this. I once kept a gas receipt for 10 years because it had my dad's signature on it. ๐Ÿ˜‚

For those that don't know, my daddy died when I was 17 and it (obviously) affected me very deeply. It resulted in years of therapy, abandonment issues, and anxiety. But more importantly: it made me more compassionate, more aware of how important it is to take advantage of the time we have, and more determined to tell the people I love that I love them as much as possible.

His death is also the reason I ever picked up a camera in the first place. He was an amateur photographer and I picked up photography after he died as a way to feel close to him when I just wanted to hug him or hear his voice. Today I found a photo album of his life from birth until he married my mother, written in my grandmother's handwriting.

If I could explain in one feeling why I do what I do as a photographer, it would be the feeling I had looking through this book today. I cannot explain the feeling and the lightness of spirit. Print your photos, people. Write about your memories. Don't let them live and die on your hard drive.

My mom is no longer in a place mentally where she can share these things with me. My grandmother passed a few years ago. This is all I have. And it is more valuable than gold. โค

Got our photos back from @thelightcophoto from the shoots she did of us last month on our Big Bend trip! She freakin' killed it! ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ I love hanging out with fellow photog friends! #newpicswhodis #thanksboo #thatlighttho

Had some fun playing with the super slow motion video on my new phone. Copper got some air! #lolliepants #copperthepup

For #earthday today I bought plants, spent A LOT of time outside, and cuddled the HECK out of @laroccadahouse 's new puppers Copper. She is such an adorable spaz and had me laughing the whole time. It was a good day. ๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒŽ๐ŸŒ #lolliepants #copperthepup #myheart #whatagreatday

Saw Chicago tonight! I've never seen it live before. Despite the literal WORST HUMAN EVER (she sang out loud to EVERY. SINGLE. SONG. and took her shoes off and put her feet on the rail LIKE AN ANIMAL), I enjoyed it! Also the lady behind me stepped on and pulled my hair. So there's that. Not my finest night at the theater. ๐Ÿ˜‚ #chicago #younasty #putyoureffingshoesbackon #thisisnotyourhouse #ididntpaytohearyousing #imoldandcranky #getoffmylawn

Yesterday for sure did not suck. โ™ฅ๏ธ Also I think we accidentally went to Mexico? Unclear. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚ @thelightcophoto @rwmoses #bigbend #travel #riogrande #roadtrip

I do love me a good doorway. So many possibilities! #terlinguaghosttown #roadtrip #westtexas #desertcolorsarethebomb

If you go through west Texas and you don't stop at Marfa, are you even a real hipster? ๐Ÿค” #prada #marfa #somuchtimeinthecar #andmilestogobeforeisleep @rwmoses @thelightcophoto

I meant to post more this week but honestly I learned so much and I was so exhausted every night I never had the energy. What an amazing workshop! I had SUCH a great time and I can't wait to apply what I learned this weekend at my shoot with @thelightcophoto! I also can't wait for the scans to come back from this week! (These are just phone photos- not the "good" ones!)
