This Made Me Smile :: Monday :: Doing What I Love // Chicagoland Engagement and Portrait Photographer

Monday, December 1, 2014

I often think about how immensely I am blessed to be able to do what I love. 
I love taking pictures. I truly love it. 
I still get giddy and excited before a shoot, and afterwards when I see how everything turned out. 
Weddings are loads and heaps of fun. 
I mean, what could be better than being able to be a part of the Very Best Day of a man and a woman's life?
And what could be more fun than making pictures of lovely, happy people?
(not much I tell ya'.....well...besides coffee ice cream)
So, pretty much, I love my job.
And this past week/weekend was no exception to those feelings.

As I was packing my bags for this visit I kept thinking to myself that I didn't need to pack that much stuff, after all, I was going to my very own sister's house. I could just borrow stuff off of her. Welcome to the world of sisters. 
Being in my sister's home was just like being at home.
 Everything just made sense. 
Those two living in their own little home all married and in love. 
The amazing food they cooked for us. 
The little town they live in. 
And the tiny (and I mean tiny) little house they live in.
It was pretty great.

This Made Me Smile :: Monday :: A Verse

Monday, November 24, 2014


"Teach me, O LORD, the way of your statutes;
 and I will keep it to the end. 
Give me understanding, that I may keep your law and observe it with my whole heart. 
Lead me in the path of your commandments for I delight in it. 
Incline my heart to you testimonies and not to selfish gain!
 Turn my eyes aways for looking at worthless things and give me life in your ways. 
Confirm to your servant  your promise that you may be feared. 
Turn aways the reproach that I dread for your rules are good behold I long for your precepts; 
in your righteousness give me life!"
Psalm 119: 33-40

I want those words to be my prayer every day.

Happy Monday!
