In this corner of the interweb, coming in at 7 pounds, 14 ounces.....Jackson Reed!!!! He joined our family on Monday, and I’m glad I didn’t have to wait until today (which was the day they we’re going to induce me). He’s a great baby during the day, but likes to keep his momma awake most of the night. He’s the perfect little addition to our family and we love him sooooo much. Welcome to the world baby J! #swiperight #mistycphotography #oneofthesedaysilltakenewbornphotos #mistycbts #weddingphotographer #adventureswithrayleeandjackson

We’ve been MIA for a week since this new little guy has graced us with his presence! It has been an adjustment as I expected, but it’s like he’s always been here-except maybe the lack of sleep thing. But the REAL shout out this week goes to THIS GUY. He’s helped me SO much when I know there’s other things he could be doing. He’s kept Raylee from driving me completely crazy, even got me tasty treats for Valentine’s Day, and we love him so dang much. @justinlc7 You’re the best, and I love you the mostest. #mistycphotography #mistycbts #gettoknowmisty #adventureswithraylee #oregoncoast #weddingphotographer

Just one week (at most) of it being just me and this crazy girl. I’m excited to have another little buddy to take on adventures, and I’m also grateful I’ll have her around to keep me entertained once Jackson is here. .
Honestly, I had the hardest time when I had Raylee. All through that pregnancy, I was working in the dental office and was able to talk to adults all day, and have conversations and help people. I felt needed, appreciated, and fulfilled. Then I had Raylee and it was no longer like that. Sure I was helping her, but she never thanked me. I rarely had visitors and it was just me and her a good majority of the time. If you don’t know me, I’m an extrovert at heart and just being AROUND people makes me a happier person. When I have to sit at home for too many days on end, I get grouchy, and I definitely had more grouchy days than good days within her first few months of life. Luckily, this time around, Raylee will be there to keep me company, to make me laugh when I need it, and to help grab diapers or something when I’m too exhausted to try. I love this crazy little girl, and I’m excited to see her grow into the best big sister. 😍 #mistycphotography #mistycbts #gettoknowmisty #fridayintroductions #exceptitssaturday #weddingphotographer #onemoreweek

This little bun is still cooking in the oven for a bit (he must be stubborn like his dad 😜) but if you saw my story, you know the good news!!!! The light at the end of the tunnel is coming!!! We set my induction date as the 17th unless something happens beforehand. So if you need me, I’ll be frantically deep cleaning, and stressing about making sure we have everything we need. 😳🤦🏼‍♀️ #mistycphotography #mistyccouples #desertbride #engaged #risingtidesociety #communityovercompetition #freepeople #showitunited #showiteer #shootandshare #passgallery

I’ve been up since 3:30 this morning... not because of labor or anything exciting like that, just because I couldn’t sleep. Pregnancy is SOOOO fun. 🙅🏼‍♀️☠️ Now if you need me, I’ll be half dead on the couch today, but reminiscing my Canada trip a little less than a year ago.

If you don’t see Raylee for a while it’s because we’re locking her up until she’s 20. I know parents are always bias about their own kids, but I can’t ever get over how pretty this little stinker is. Even when she plays with my makeup brushes after the 205th time I’ve yelled at her for it. It’s a good thing she’s cute. 😜 #mistycphotography #mistycbts #adventureswithraylee #risingtidesociety #communityovercompetition #showiteer #shootandshare #clickinmoms #maskcarabeauty #maskcara #stockphotos #passgallery

One of my favorite things to do during my bride and groom portraits is to photograph close to my couples getting little details, but I also love WIDE shots. I think it’s a good reminder that it’s about more than just the little things. :) Marriage is a big deal, guys. I want my couples to know I believe in what they’re doing, and I know the importance in the big scheme of things. It’s more about the two of you than it is about your flowers or your shoes, but we can also like those things too. It all about balance, right? ;) #mistycphotography #mistyccouples #mistycbrides #weddingphotographer #marriagematters #buzzfeedwedding #huffpostido #pascoweddingphotographer #kennewickweddingphotographer #easternwawedding #pnwedding #509bride #applebrides #stylemepretty #risingtidesociety #communityovercompetition #showiteer #shootandshare #passgallery

Recap from yesterday: the game was great. I’m not a Pats hater, but it’s always fun to see Tom Brady pouting. Justin was good, but I kept waiting for *NSYNC to regroup and end up on stage...to no avail. And the commercials were pretty dang funny! I kept laughing at all the stupid Tide commercials. Which one was your favorite? #mistycphotography #mistycdetails #bridaldetails #bridalshoes #weddingphotographer #winerywedding #fontaineestateswinery #winecountry #risingtidesociety #communityovercompetition #shootandshare #showiteer #passgallery #theacademytoday

Ohhhh this is a fun #fridayintroduction today!! There’s a few new friends in here and it’s been a few weeks since I had a good one so here’s goes. I’m Misty, and I’m a wedding photographer here in central Washington. I’m a farmers wife, mom to Raylee (the crazy almost-4 year old) and Blitz the black lab, and soon to be baby #2. I’m 39 weeks pregnant today and although I’m so ready to NOT be pregnant anymore, I’m not necessarily ready to have a newborn! 😳 I love riding motorcycles, and you won’t catch me riding on the back. I have a 2012 Harley Nightster that I love, and in 2013, me, my hubby, my dad, and one of his friends rode from here to Sturgis in 6 days. 2300 Miles. We had a ton of silly moments, some scary ones, and some interesting motel 6s full of stinky cat smells and mold (gag-you get what you pay for) and it’s something I’ll never forget, and hope to do it again maybe when these kiddos are older! We had a blast though!! Here’s a few shots from the trip. :) Have you gone on a long road trip before?! Where’d you go?! #mistycphotography #mistycbehindthescenes #gettoknowmisty #harleydavidson #sturgis2013 #

Can I tell you a secret?! Ok, it’s not really a secret, but it’s something I think we all need to remember. Your worth doesn’t depend on the number of likes of followers or shares... NOTHING. I’m so over this “follow for follow” game that so many try to play on this dang thing known as social media. I haven’t really ever been one to get riled up about it, but it gets so irritating to me when people just “follow” me in hopes I’ll hit the “follow back” button and then they unfollow me. Listen, if you’re here because you enjoy what I post, and think I’m as funny as I think I am on my instastories (ha! But really...) and you like to engage with me, then welcome to my little corner of the interweb!!!! But if you’re just searching for more followers because you need that to feel like you mean something, you won’t find that here. End rant. Happy February friends!!!!!!!! .

Happy anniversary to these two today!!! I’m still trying to figure out how it’s been a year already, but I loved every minute of their wedding weekend down in Oregon last January!! My motel had llamas that you could feed, you guys. And their friends and family are some of THE best!!

We’re coming up on February guys!! February is usually my busiest booking month every year, and I still have availability for this fall!!! If you’re a bride getting married in September OR October, make sure to inquire sooner than later. These dates will go by quick!!!! #mistycphotography #mistycbrides #pnwedding #buzzfeedwedding #huffpostido #loveintentionally #thatsdarling #darlingmovement #risingtidesociety #communityovercompetition #shootandshare #showiteer #stylemepretty #pnwroamers #chasinglight #letselope #bridesmag #applebrides #buzzfeedwedding #passgallery

Happy Friday friends!!!!! Today is a busy day for me, doing payroll for the farm, visiting some lovely ladies this morning, hopefully headed to town for a MUCH NEEDED oil change, and then celebrating tonight for a dear friend!! It will be a good day, but at the same time, a little stressful. My daddy is going in for a stress test with the cardiologist to find out why he’s been having such a low heart rate and an arrhythmia they found in other appointments. Thank goodness for modern medicine, but sometimes I think life was way simpler when people just lived their lives without knowing EVERYTHING!! Send your prayers/good vibes this way again today. It worked pretty well last time. 😘 @brookerydman @cshelton113

Less than six months 'til I get to celebrate my birthday with these guys!! Oh wait. I mean celebrate their wedding. HA! ;) It just so happens that my birthday is the day after. It will be a BLAST!!! @grayseatruex #mistycphotography #mistycbrides #engaged #shesaidyes #engagementsession #pnwedding #westcoastbestcoast #thatsdarlingmovement #darlingmagazine #shootandshare #showiteer #passgallery #engagements #couplesession #savethedate #chasinglight #madetocreate #whidbeyislandweddings #seattleweddingphotographer

Today I have one of my last ultrasounds to find out if this crazy guy has turned. He's been breech almost my whole pregnancy which means his head has been jammed in my rib cage almost 95% of the time. I've stressed about having to have them turn him (mostly because I hear how horrible that is), about having to have a c-section, and basically about 1034 other things that could go wrong, but today we find out if he actually is the right-way-down, or if we have to take a few more steps to get him that way. I've got this weirdly calm about it, and I'm hoping/willing/imagining the best case scenario. Positive thinking, right?! Wish me luck today! And send some prayers this way, if you're into that too! :) #mistycphotography #mistycbehindthescenes #mistycbts #behindthescenes #weddingphotographer #washingtonweddingphotographer #lightandairy #chasinglight #thatsdarling #Risingtidesociety #communityovercompetition #passgallery #showiteer #shootandshare #pnwedding #westcoastbestcoast PC: @terranycephotography

If you have been following around here for a while, you know I LOVE me a gorgeous set of paper goods. Your wedding invitation is kind of like the first look at your wedding for your guests! It's easy to think that it's just a piece of paper, but they're SO much more than that. There is SO much to be told by just a few little pieces of paper, and that's one of the many reasons why I love documenting them as a part of your wedding details. You spend the time (and money) on them! Why not remember them as a piece of your story!?

Today is the day I FINALLY announce my 2018 WORDS of the year. That's right, there's two of them this year because I just couldn't narrow it down between the two. I'm not going to spoil the surprise though, you have to go check out the blog to see what I landed on. :) Do you have a word for the year? I want to know what it is so comment below! #mistycphotography #mistycbrides #linkinbio #ontheblogtoday #engaged #shesaidyes #engagementsession #pnwedding #westcoastbestcoast #thatsdarlingmovement #darlingmagazine #shootandshare #showiteer #passgallery #engagements #couplesession #savethedate #chasinglight #madetocreate

Every year I like to blog my goals. Most of the time it saves me from forgetting where I wrote them down, but I still end up forgetting they're on the blog, and then stress for hours until I actually remember. THIS year, I have them in 3 different places...JUST IN CASE I forget. Chances are high, but this year is going to be a great one. Crazy, but great. #ontheblog #linkinbio #mistycphotography #mistycbehindthescenes #mistycbts #behindthescenes #weddingphotographer #washingtonweddingphotographer #momlife #clickinmoms #lightandairy #chasinglight #thatsdarling #Risingtidesociety #communityovercompetition #passgallery #showiteer #shootandshare #pnwedding #westcoastbestcoast

There’s days that it totally sucks to be an adult. I remember when I was in high school thinking how I just couldn’t wait to be on my own and not have to deal with my parents and having them tell me what I could and couldn’t do. Then there’s days like yesterday that I wish I could go back to those days when I didn’t have to worry about money or going through labor or insurance or that my car needs an oil change- just what I was going to wear that day and who I’d go to lunch with. I am grateful for the season of life I’m in now, but I wish those sucky days could take a back seat more often than not and not the other way around. .

I'm a firm believer of love languages, and I know that one that is super important to me is "words of affirmation." It might be just human nature, but it always makes me feel all warm and fuzzy when I get a "Good job," or "you did good," or even just a "thanks." This time of year, I like to look back at how I did, and what I could do for my couples for next year, so I ask my past brides what I could do better, and if they wouldn't mind leaving me a short review of our time together. You guys!!!! I was so overwhelmed by the sweet words from my 2017 brides. I love all of them, and I'm so honored to get to work with such amazing people year after year, and this year was one of THE BEST! I shared some of their sweetness on the blog this week. They're just my favorite. :) #mistycphotography #mistycbrides #pnwedding #buzzfeedweddings #huffpostido #loveintentionally #thatsdarling #darlingmovement #risingtidesociety #communityovercompetition #shootandshare #showiteer #stylemepretty #pnwroamers #chasinglight #letselope #bridesmag #applebrides #terrablancawedding #winerywedding #passgallery #yearinreviews2017 #lovelanguage

Are you ready for alllllll the pretties?!
