I feel extremely honored that I was asked to participate in a monthly blog circle called "For the Love". Several other very talented ladies and myself will be writing each month and posting pictures that inspire us. But before I could do that I had to step back and ask myself what does "For the Love" mean? There are a million different way you can define it but the truth of the matter is defining it isn't what we should be doing. FEELING it is much important. Words don't mean much if there is no emotion behind them.
So for my first post in this series, I want to show you where my heart truly lies. With my family. They are my every thing. My girls are my inspiration, my muses, my reason to pick up my camera when the world feels dark and bleak. My husband- he is my rock, my supporter, my soulmate. I would be nothing without these essential pieces of my life. They are what make up the fiber of my being and they are the reason I want to photograph every single minute of our lives. They make this life worth living and I don't want to miss a minute of it.
My Sophie, she just turned 4 and she is the sweetest little being I have ever met. She is sensitive but brave. She is kind and caring. She is a wonderful big sister and she awes me every day.
Sadie Belle (yes thats her real name, what do you expect? We are from Kentucky!)- we aptly nicknamed this firecracker "The Bulldozer". She is a girl on a mission and she knows what she wants and by god she is going to get it. And most of the time its food she wants. And she is just so darn cute, we usually hand over what it is she wants. LOL! She is sweetheart too. My little cuddle bug who I am fairly certain will be in bed with my husband and I every single night once she figures out how to escape from her crib.
My husband- 7 years married and still going strong. I think I love him more now that I did the day we got married. He is an incredible and caring husband and the best father a girl could ask for. I am so thankful my girls have him.
And finally, a rarely seen image of myself. I am a 30 year old, happily married, mother of 2 who loves cooking and photography. I am also a little addicted to buying baby carriers. Good thing Miss Sadie Belle likes being woren! My dear husband snapped this picture of me and Sadie this weekend on a hike on my mother in laws property.
