Standard is spectacular.

Life has been really busy lately. Recently we've spent some time with our favorite little gals, filed our taxes, and been having a ball. Nothing spectacular has happened, life has been pretty standard...but sometimes, 'standard' is spectacular.

My heart... its melting.
Momma and I decided to have a makeover night last week, and it was awesome. She recently just got a ton of Mary Kay product so we tried it out ;) we've spent a ton of time together lately and it makes my heart insanely happy. Movies, moon pies + lots of chats.

We're starting to get busy shooting weddings! Yay! This weekend marks wedding #3 of the year and we're excited about it. It's mostly outdoor and I'm excited to get pretty creative with our resources. New ideas are brewing! Also, can we talk about how gorgeous this dress from last weekends wedding was??

Spring time = storms = enjoying the view from the living room = trying to snap a successful lightning bolt shot = a happy Kayla!

Indulging in one of the most delicious homemade rice krispie treats ever! The youth leaders wife made some snacks for the car for us and I definitely reaped the benefits!!!

For a while Caleb and I had been so good about not watching a ton of TV since its been so nice out, that we would take walks instead... until one of us got the idea to start The Following and O-M-G. There go our evenings!!! Already on episode 6!!!

Most of the time I keep my shots pretty bright and fun but for some reason this week I was so drawn to the more edgy feel for this street shot of this couples feet. He was SO in love with his socks and making sure they looked even, it was precious. I seriously love this gig!

It was a year ago today that my grandpa Phil passed from a very long battle with cancer... please say a little prayer for my family today! Look at his baby blues! Miss you, grandpa.

I hope you'll take a minute today to just enjoy whats around you - even the little things.  Enjoy your weekend, friends!!

  2. Both you and your mom are beautiful women! Over the weekend while I was getting ready for a surprise birthday party (which was a complete surprise to the birthday girl so mission accomplished!) I asked my mom to help me with my eye makeup. It was a first for us but it was nice to spend time together even if it was only a few minutes.

  4. I love that picture of their feet! I'm definitely wearing Chucks on my wedding day, so a foot picture is a necessity. I'm glad you're spending so much time with your mom and really soaking in the special moments of the day-to-day! Also, I nearly blacked out when I saw that rice krispie treat. Oh my word.

  14. The Following is my JAM!! I binge watch it every season since we don't have cable. Sometimes that leads to bedtimes at 2AM but it's totally worth it!
