The Truth…

Here it is, the truth. The thing most do not like to admit, but the reality is it happens to the best of us. I know I’m not alone & if I can make someone else feel as if they are not alone, I’m ok with bringing a little embarrassment upon myself to let you know we’re in this together. So here it goes; the truth is.. My life….Is a mess! A BEAUTIFUL freaking mess.

As a lot of you know, I’ve recently been upgraded to a mom of FOUR. Which has been so exciting & totally terrifying all at the same time! Jer & I are completely out numbered at this point & I feel as if most days, we spend it following orders given to us by little bossy beings, who are no taller than 40 inches. haha! Even still, I love everything about being a momma! The good, the bad & even the ugly. Its a packaged deal, this parenting thing is. You can’t have just the good. You have to take it all & I’m learning to make the best of the “bad” that comes with motherhood. Sleep, who needs it!? Alone time, its a good day if I can potty with only 2 out of 4 kids in the bathroom with me at once! Warm food, ha! Eating it cold means I will likely not eat as much of it & that’ll help with all this baby weight I put on! HAHA! See!! I’m seeing the positive in the bad 😉

I’m not gonna lie, its hard. Hard as hell! But it is THE MOST fulfilling, rewarding thing I have ever, ever done! I am no longer a size 2, no longer have flawless skin, look like a cave man with the amount of hair on my unshaved legs LOL But! I feel more loved & beautiful than I ever have before. I have 4 little humans that look up at me  with their big beautiful eyes they got from their daddy & see past my unwashed hair & stained clothes & look at me like I am the best thing on earth (especially when I am unwrapping a piece of candy they couldn’t open themselves.) The amount of love I feel from them & for them, far surpasses any sleepless night or pain of a lego they left out that pierces my foot when I step on it, or spilt juice the won’t come out of the carpet.

I doubt myself daily! Life ain’t easy. Especially when one takes on soooo much, all at once! Running an awesome photography business (that I am SO blessed to have!! Not just from a finical standpoint but it allows me to work mostly from home so I can be there for my babies more, but also the people I have met & the relationships I have gained. This industry has connected me with so many very talented individuals!! & my clients, oh my, I truly cherish! I have gotten so close to so many over the years <3) Then, while pregnant, we started a total renovation of our home. We’re currently on week 20 & ALMOST near the end. To see the crazy conditions we’re living in with our herd of 6 & to see the progress, look up #thewrightremodel on Instagram 😉 then you add a colic 6 week old, 2 toddlers, a preteen, an attention seeking fur baby & a hubs…..its a lot! It’s a mess but it MY mess, my absolutely beautiful mess of a life. & I am incredibly blessed to be living it. Sometime we need to keep in mind, its a bad day, not a bad life!

This whole post got brought about from a small victory we had last night. Baby Wesley has struggled with adjusting to this biggo’ outside world a little bit. He’s been on the fussy side & when I was nearing my breaking point last night from pure exhaustion, all the stresses that come with everything I have going on & all the babies needing me & a bath…I  put the toddlers in the tub together next to my shower & just stepped under the luke warm water with the baby & ahhh. He was so peaceful & calm & I was finally getting to hold my baby without him crying or feeding! It was amazing! & in that moment, I realized that, that is the truth, the beautiful mess that it may be, its our life. & you all allow us to be apart of your lives all the time, its only fair that you get to know about mine 🙂 As messy & as lovely as it may be!! This post is totally un-photography related, not our typical wedding blog 😉 But! Its a real blog, about the realness of our lives. So if you’re feeling the stresses of life too, hang in there!! I feel your pain! Just focus on those moments that make it all totally worth it. Like cuddling your peaceful, tear free, 9lbs handsome baby boy after a long day!

Hugs!

Geoff & Ashley | Santa Rosa Beach Wedding

2016-03-21_0051

Saturday, Jeremy & I had the pleasure of capturing the love between these two precious folks! I cannot even explain the fun that was had in Santa Rosa Beach this weekend!! Savoir Faire Weddings always puts on such beautiful events & Stephanie did NOT disappoint this time either!! The weather was giving me a mini heart attack…it was suppose to be non stop rain that day & SOMEHOW, we didn’t see a single drop!! Aside from that, everything was absolutely fabulous! The long dark wood tables, the flower crown, the converse kicks the groom wore, the stunning lace dress the bride wore so beautifully, the obvious love these two share for one another, the gold utensils they used,  the ICE-CREAM cake, yes y’all, ice cream cake. Its like Ashley had a map of the direct path to my heart ❤ haha!! It was perfect & I cannot wait for you guys to scroll down & see what I’m talking about 🙂 2016-03-21_00032016-03-21_00172016-03-21_00042016-03-21_00022016-03-21_00012016-03-21_00052016-03-21_00062016-03-21_00072016-03-21_00092016-03-21_00082016-03-21_00182016-03-21_00102016-03-21_00112016-03-21_0012
Geoff & Ashley wanted to have a first look with one another & during that time, they privately read their vows to each other. It was the sweetest thing, ever! Although I couldn’t hear what was being said between the two of them, the emotion! Woo! So sweet! The way Geoff rubbed Ashley’s arm as she read to him & moved her hair out of her face, how he wrapped her in his arms when she was done & ahhh. The sweetest!

eeeeeekkk!! Geoff’s nephew is named after him & you can tell, that little fella lights up big Geoff’s whole world! Just LOOK at that proud uncles face as his little dude makes his way down the aisle. 2016-03-21_00212016-03-21_00232016-03-21_00222016-03-21_00242016-03-21_00252016-03-21_00262016-03-21_00272016-03-21_00282016-03-21_00292016-03-21_00302016-03-21_00322016-03-21_00342016-03-21_00352016-03-21_00392016-03-21_00382016-03-21_00312016-03-21_00332016-03-21_00362016-03-21_00372016-03-21_00412016-03-21_00402016-03-21_00432016-03-21_00422016-03-21_00452016-03-21_00482016-03-21_00472016-03-21_00492016-03-21_00462016-03-21_00502016-03-21_00522016-03-21_00532016-03-21_00542016-03-21_00552016-03-21_00652016-03-21_00642016-03-21_0066
Ice cream cake timeeee!! 2016-03-21_0068
The toast, were pretty dang epic 🙂 Lots of laughs were had, during that time!! 2016-03-21_00632016-03-21_00622016-03-21_00602016-03-21_00592016-03-21_00572016-03-21_00582016-03-21_0056
Throughout the night, these two love birds had little moments to themselves. Just precious little bits of time where they seemed to really take in the moment, even with all the fun happening around them 🙂 Its as if time was still for them & they were in their own little newlywed world ❤ 2016-03-21_00672016-03-21_00612016-03-21_00692016-03-21_0070
2016-03-21_00712016-03-21_0072
Their confetti exit led them right down to the beach & they ended their BEAUTIFUL night, by the fire, sharing smores. It could not have been anymore perfect  & I’m so happy I got to be apart if it :]

Hugs ❤

An unforgettable evening!

Christine & Jonathan are totally adorable! & though they are quiet, the looks they give one another speaks volumes about the love they share! I was honored they allowed Jeremy & I to be the ones to capture their sweet spirits, earlier this month!! On a perfect evening, on a private, beautiful spot back in the woods…they got hitched 🙂 They proclaimed their love in front of the most spirited, lively, fun, lovin’ bunch you’ve ever seen!! Just WAIT till you see  some of the reception pictures! These people KNOW how to have a good time!!

Watching Christine’s 6 foot something, manly man, tough guy looking daddy shed tears as he walked her down the aisle, seeing Jonathan’s face light up every time he caught a glimpse of his beautiful bride, the peaceful, unique, wooded ceremony location, watching these love birds & their relatives have the best time ever as they bust a move & play air guitars to the music, to having a guest try to convince my shy hubby to have a dance with them, all the way to the delicious cupcakes you had. Your wedding was a lovely &  unforgettable evening!

Until next time 🙂
Hugs ❤

Was I right, or was I right?! Looks like a complete fairytale, huh? It was!! It absolutely was! Cindy even requested  to have “Ariel hair” like in the Little Mermaid. &&& “Under the Sea” just happened to be a song that was played on the steel drums, just before she lined up to walk down the aisle! It was magical! I am so glad I got to take part in such a beautiful evening with such beautiful people! Cindy & Jon, thank you for letting JWP capture your love story. I wish you both all the love & laughter this life has to offer ❤

Hugs!!

BFF Vacation

2016-03-14_0023
When you have a teenager, earning “cool”  points with them is hard to do! I have a pre teen & I can tell you, nothing I do is do is very cool anymore to her. LOL But these parents in this post, probably racked up enough points to last them a while 🙂 If I could be 13 again, this would be an unforgettable way to kick off spring time.

5 lucky ladies, not just any 5, but 5 best freindssss…Got to travel together (along with their families) to the worlds most beautiful beaches & enjoy a vacation all together. Totally cool, right?

 

While making plenty of memories together & enjoying the sugary, soft, white sand, they asked me to come along one evening & capture their time together 🙂

Meet the girls;

Laughing in LOVE

2016-03-03_0001
There was SO much love & laughter at St. Andrews State Park this past Wednesday with Ali Kate & Adam!! As you can see above, these two are totally goo goo over one another, which was so adorable to witness in person ❤ This was my first session back since having Baby Wesley 2 & a half weeks ago & it could not have been any better. It could have been a little warmer for us! haha But that just meant extra snuggles for these love birds 🙂

2016-03-03_0007
Precious! That’s the exact word that comes to mind when I think of them. The way they held one another, how Adam kissed her without me even prompting it, Ali Kate being totally giddy still, even after being with Adam for 2 years. Ahh! Makes my heart smile!!2016-03-03_0002
2016-03-03_0003
