You can draw some metaphorical encouragement from this if you want, but I mean it very literally.
.
As a creative, a wife, and an adult who is starting to realize that the responsibilities of being an adult only keep increasing for the foreseeable future, here I am to say:
Make it a priority, go to the doctor.
.
My family is so lucky to have learned this the hard way and still have my mom on the other side. My mom worked SO hard while I was growing up. She worked full time and never missed a play or concert or conference or ceremony or game, she always made us dinner, made sure the house was running like clockwork and clean — she literally did it all, except go to the doctor. Where was there time for HER in all of the plates she was spinning?
.
Until, when I was 22, she HAD to go because she had horrible allergies for months and needed relief. She didn’t even realize there was a tumor the size of a cantaloupe in her abdomen, but her doctor found it anyway during that appointment. Her oncologist said it had likely been growing for 3-5 years, but would’ve been found far earlier if she’d had gone in for an annual exam. She started chemotherapy a few weeks later and it is a gift we do not take for granted that she is still with us and cancer free today, because she almost wasn’t, and if it weren’t for that doctors appointment, she wouldn’t be.
.
So I will carry this banner for the rest of my life: none of those things that are keeping you too busy to take care of yourself will matter if you’re not here. I would rather my mom have missed a dozen afternoons of checking my homework and making me dinner if it meant her cancer was caught sooner.
.
Your people feel the same way. Please, for the sake of all of the things you’re prioritizing in your life above that annual doctor’s appointment, make the appointment and keep it. Every single year.
October has been a little disappointing these past few years, what with its 90 degree temps and such...but October seems to have shown up in full glory this year and I am all the way for it 😍

Date night idea: find a graffitied wall and dance in front of it.
💃🏼🕺

Not outsider, broken, rejected - chosen, holy, beloved. That’s what God calls those who trust in Jesus. Before we do anything, without having to perform or earn it, he’s called us his chosen ones, holy and beloved. It’s a invitation to live in freedom because we don’t have to fight for our place, we’re chosen. We don’t have to strive for perfection, we’re holy in Christ. We don’t have to earn love, we are the beloved. It’s already true, and we’re invited to live like we believe it. To love God back by believing what he says about us is true. To take our brokenness, rejection, and failure to him and receive his truth in its place. Happy Monday, folks. That’s some good news.
And now y’all know why I was so excited to see them 😍

These two knocked their maternity session out of the park! (Or farm, as it were).

Less internet, more face to face.
It’s gallery delivery day and that ALWAYS makes me want to eat cake. I’m trying to be a responsible adult and not just eat cake on a random Tuesday, tho, so I’ll settle for staring at cake instead😍

Just like that, the leaves are starting to turn!

Welcome, autumn. We’ve been waiting for you🍂🍁🌻🎃
As we jump into Fall (finally 🍁🍂🌻🎃), I’m cleaning things out, revisiting goals for this year, recalculating some trajectories, celebrating the things God has done in my life and business in 2018 so far while I step into the finale of this year.
.
It feels like a centering rhythm to mark seasons and write out goals and accomplishments and hopes and purpose.
.
2019 will be here before we know it and I don’t want to get there without squeezing every drop of goodness available out of 2018. Do you have any rhythms like this throughout the year?
This was another moment of taking photos for me (and my niece who is 1000x cooler than I am) and I loved it so stinkin much! I just keep finding that the more I remember how much I love being behind my camera, the better I am for my clients in all ways. I’m determined to keep shooting for me, even through the busy season that Fall always is!!
