This was a test shot for a shoot that we were doing in our new studio and it’s the definitely of motherhood. I was posing and the environment was stressful AF and we were trying to rush but light tests can take a second, Sienna would NOT be put down and if she was, she was headed for the electrical outlets. And because it was a test, of course, this isn’t my favorite, most flattering outfit and this isn’t my fav of hers either AND she’s got her hand all up in her mouth but that’s real life isn’t it? That’s what it looks like behind the posed and perfect “Instagram” shots. But yet, it’s one of my favorite of us. It’s real, it’s raw. And I absolutely love it. I intend to go back and do a series of us that’s more intentional because I love love love this aesthetic and look so much but in the meantime, I will treasure this moment. The epitome of motherhood. Happy Mother’s Day, everyone. Motherhood is tough, motherhood is real, and I won’t divulge more here but you can read more about motherhood adventures on my personal account - @thepearshapedmama — I hope all mamas have felt appreciated today. This day means so much more now. ❤️❤️

Sipping coffee is one of my favorite things to do in life. So, if you can imagine, sipping coffee while watching the people go by in the streets of Italy was even more so a dream. We make sure we go to a cafe almost everywhere we travel. Because there is so much inspiration to be experienced when you sit in the hustle and bustle of a new place. I love bringing that kind of inspiration to our work. Much like what we did with our spring minis this year, which you can check out in our Insta Stories! Tell me, what is your favorite thing to do when you travel?⁣

One more from this gorgeous session and also because I made my lovely clients get in the water. Ha! But you know, if they hadn't trusted me and not cared about muddy feet, we wouldn't have gotten this amazing image! Love love love that most of my sweet couples are SO GAME for anything!⁣

We rarely post photos of ourselves. We need to change that! This is a photo of my very special shoot assistant, totally slacking on the job. Hahaha! It was so cute, for the two minutes that she was like this (Disclaimer: we totally took her out almost immediately after this was taken!). Everyone stopped to laugh, even the New Orleans tourists walking along the street! Adorbs is an understatement. She was a super trooper and stayed content and happy... until she just lost interest and decided it was nap time hahaha!⁣

Y’all, sometimes you need a picture of some rocks. First, to break up the monotony of the usual, second, because we need to appreciate the beauty of the world around it. ❤️❤️❤️ there’s such beauty in the details, in everything around us. You just have to look. Are you looking? Have you been looking? 👀

Not every moment is a flat out laugh, and with the way marriage goes, it definitely has its ups and downs. That's why it's so important to have images like these in your engagement session because the photos themselves can tell the story of how you both are in your relationship, even if its a small gesture or a quiet look. I learn so much about my clients and their relationship when I spend time with them, doing their engagement session. 😍⁣

Speaking of flowers 💐, here’s one of my favorite arrangements ever, designed by sweet friends @thepetalerco and @victoriaaustindesigns. Isn’t everything about this table setting just perfect?!? *Swoon*

Look at those AZALEAS! Gorgeous right?! The season is over, but I’m so glad that we were able to take advantage when they were all in full bloom. Photographing Lauren and Mike was a pleasure. They are cool, laid back and gorgeous together. So so excited that they are about to tie the knot. Wildflowers are out right now though and I love seeing them in the median as we head down the interstates and highways! 😍 what’s your favorite wildflower? Mine is the little yellow buttercups!

I remember ... on a Monday about three years ago, we landed in Milan with Thang and Khanh to go on a photo trip of a lifetime! For a week, we feasted and sipped on wine and woke up at the crack of dawn to get shots like this and now they are moving on to a new chapter of their lives. We are so excited for them and so so thankful for having amazing clients. 😍😍⠀

Today is the day of engagement sessions! We just got done with one in New Orleans today (see stories!) but love reminiscing about this amazing session we did at Lake Fort Smith Park in Little Rock, AR. Everything about this session was absolutely stunning, and the light was just perfect. 🙌🙌 Hop on over to the engagement gallery on our website to see the full session!!
