MOST RECENT

Oldest church in the USA: San Miguel Mission. It was so awesome to attend mass here when visiting family in New Mexico! (although I had to come back at a different time to take photos 😜 I suffered through gladly) We stayed in Santa Fe as a part of our trip, a town I haven’t been to since...the late 90’s??

I am so excited to be participating in #loopof52clicks: a weekly loop where we share a photo from a monthly photography challenge. We hope you will follow along on our journey and be inspired to try some new techniques as well. This month’s theme is “Backlit”. Feel free to participate in the challenge with us by tagging your photos #loopof52clicks_backlit. Next in the loop is @sarrahhkaayy - show her some love!

"A married woman must, when called upon, quit her devotions at the altar to find him in her household affairs." - St. Frances of Rome
.
Last week I spent an afternoon at a friend's house while our babies played together. I admitted to her that over the past month or so, I have spent very little time in prayer... I have felt so exhausted and nauseous that I spent a lot of days in bed anytime Evelyn napped, and that has completely shattered any sort of prayer routine that I had in place before this first trimester. She told me that she is actually in a similar rut and that she talked about it with a priest in spiritual direction.
.
He told her that sometimes we, as mothers, are simply not able to pray like we used to (sitting down with our Bibles and prayer journals and dedicating a solid half hour or hour to quite prayer). Our vocation as mothers calls us to learn to pray in a new way. We are called to make our entire life a prayer, by acknowledging God's presence at every moment throughout our day and offering all our works as wives and mothers as a prayer. It is an act of humility, obedience, and charity to accept that we cannot always indulge in the "ideal" form of quite, meditative prayer, but must instead train our hearts and our minds to be constantly aware of God's presence and love throughout our day. ❤️
.
Just to clarify, I don't plan on giving up quiet prayer time altogether! I am simply encouraged knowing that if there are days when I’m not able to sit down and have that quiet prayer time, I can still offer myself to God in prayer throughout my day. I still don't know exactly what this form of prayer looks like in practice, but I am excited to work on it! Have any other wives and mamas struggled and/or succeeded in this form of prayer? I would love to hear!

Sugar and spice and everything nice, that’s what little girls are made of 💝👧🏼

We had such a beautiful time during Chris & Alivia's engagement session, and now they are married! It's a beautiful thing to see people you care for take these exciting steps in life.

Our #marriagetips #weddingplanningtips this week:
Continue to build trust and interest in each other. It was so cool for us to find out that Chris styled their outfits and took the time and care to coordinate the hair and make up for Alivia @carrawaybeauty did a truly beautiful job.

Remember, it's the little things that count, that continue to build and maintain the foundation for life-long love that lasts. (Have you checked out our latest #catholicmarriage blog post yet? Would love your thoughts!)

the joy and energy of a wedding day is a huge part of what makes me love this job, but dang I’m such a sucker for a moody shot...love this quiet moment from Jess’ wedding 🖤

It’s always one of my favorite pictures to take. #erinwoodyphotography #wacoportraits #lovewaco #wacoan

This girl is going to #SEEK2019 in Indianapolis (Jan. 3rd-7th) and can’t wait to see all your smiling faces there! SEEK is a five day conference for college students to gather together and ask all of life’s important questions and draw closer to Jesus Christ. I had a profound encounter with Him in the Eucharist at SEEK 2017, and am so excited to go back as a #SEEKpartner this January. Please don’t hesitate to ask questions or reach out! Registration link is in my bio!

I like the messy -ness video brings. Sure I should be using some sort of tripod to make things smoother but I’m digging the shaky video. I probably shouldn’t be changing my exposure during the middle of a video either but I’m enjoying the process. And I gotta figure out the right file size so insta doesn’t make it all blurry and compressed. #learning Hope y’all like them too and keep sticking around while I figure it all out!

So many fun projects have been in the works this past month and I am so excited to share all of it!!! This is one of my photographs being featured in @lightofsunday, a board book created for little ones to learn all about the treasures of the Catholic faith. I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it and see the beauty of it all put together and pieced by so many faithful creatives. Kickstarter launches on 9/24!

Handsome stealing the show ❤️ #erinwoodyphotography #wacoan #lovewaco #wacoportraits

ok why has nobody created an app that will bring puppies to my house to play with whenever I want 🐶 (also enjoy these two lake lovers who are just about as cute as puppies)

Happy Monday! This weekend was wonderful because I got to photograph a gorgeous wedding on Saturday! (Not the wedding pictured here!) I had been so nervous to shoot this wedding because first trimester nausea is no joke... 🙈 But amazingly, I did not feel sick at all the whole day!! I am SO grateful!! I can't wait to share some of the images from Katie and Wes's gorgeous wedding!

Poll: Shore or Mountains? We are bugging out of our beach trip early because of pesky Florence. 😫 hoping everyone stays safe out there!
