There are so many things I LOVE about working from home and working for myself. But, every once in a while, it gets a lil bit lonely, which is why over the last six months, I've been so grateful for @tuesdaystogetherdallas 😍. .
Whether it's growing friendships and learning from others (I'm looking at you, @laylee_emadi, @graydoorphotography, @sarahann_design), meeting great new people (@byeventhouse & @alemna_photos I LOVED meeting y'all today), or just feeling like I have coworkers, I'm oh so thankful to have such a safe space each month!! .

When you have beautiful friends, you convince them to become models. Speaking of love, I LOVE CHRISTMAS. And I might be a little obsessed with holiday cards. So, I'm excited to share that you can snag 20% OFF Holiday Cards at Minted with the code HOLPHOTOSKATHRYN at 🎄😍🎄😍
By the time December rolls around, my fridge is beginning to fill with them, and the happiness continues well into January. In fact, Matt and I usually end up sending out New Year's cards! We have a binder where we save a copy of our card & letter from every year. It's such a fun way to remember how our lives have changed and grown!
Which is why I'm so grateful that Minted has so many gorgeous designs created by independent artists... and that they'll address them for me - yes please!!
P.S. Get 15% OFF Everything with PHOTOPROSKATHRYN

If you haven't seen it in my stories, I've been spending time this week reflecting on this past year and dreaming about 2019 (with my @laracasey @cultivatewhatmatters Powersheets - can I get an amen?!).
As I've been thinking about the last twelve months, I am so incredibly grateful for the couples and families who have trusted me to capture their sweetest memories of the year for them. I'm so, so, so lucky to have this dreamy job and work with such amazing clients!!

Is there anything better than a pretty pair of shoes??
Wow wow wow, am I excited to share Hannah’s bridal portraits!! Hannah is my best friend, so working with her has been extra special. She’s such an incredible friend, and was the most beautiful bride!! We lived together for four years in college, and so it was very fitting that we took her bridal portraits at Southern Methodist University and Perkins Chapel. Click the link in the blog to see more!
Also, Jermaine & Hannah’s wedding was INCREDIBLE. Being Hannah’s matron of honor was such a joy. Congrats, Jermaine & Han! Love you both so much!!
I love photographing wedding inspiration shoots! It’s such a fun time to be creative, meet new vendors, and create images to help inspire brides as they make decisions for their weddings. This shoot at Sandlewood Manor was full of glamorous white touches, cascading floral elements, and lovely details! Plus, the vendor team was AMAZING! It's on the blog today - find the link in my profile!

This is my favorite time of year! Anyone else?! .
Matt & I put our decorations up and strung lights in our living room, and are playing Christmas music non-stop. We burn pumpkin candles through the winter, because they're just too yummy to limit them to fall, am I right? We're hunting down addresses to send out our holiday cards, and I wrap presents as soon as they arrive (I try to get all the shopping done online during Black Friday). I'm finishing up galleries for all my clients so they can order their prints & canvases & cards in time for the holidays, and starting to set goals and dream about 2019. .
There's something so magical about this time of year. But, at the same time, pain and loss seem to be magnified, and I'm feeling that strongly today. I'm thinking about holidays with my father-in-law playing endless board games, the way my grandma loved gift-giving so much, and how my grandpa would always be asking for another piece of pie, and I wish so much to experience those things again this year. .
What incredible hope there is in Christ's coming. How sweet to know that while we endure loss and grief, there will be a day where there is no more death or mourning or crying. Even during times of pain, we have a reason to hope. If you're feeling loss a little bit stronger right now, I'm right there with you, and I'm sending you hugs.
I have the best job in the whole wide world. I'm sharing why on the blog with Jenna & Wesley's gorgeous wedding!!
