Two Years | A Life with the Browns

Sebastian & I dated for five years before he proposed to me on a perfect Friday night. We knew we didn’t want a long engagement, so we sat down with my parents, looked at the calendar, & liked the ring “October 3rd” had to it.

258.2 | Working Hard for Onederland

When I shared my weigh in on Instagram last night, I wrote that I almost didn’t post about it this week, because I feel like a one pound loss is almost laughable. Not for everyone – but for me! I knew that I didn’t work hard last week, & I knew that I wasn’t going to be thrilled with the number on the scale. But I started this public journey for accountability, & if I’m not transparent in both the good weeks & the bad, there’s no point in doing this! So here I am!

261.4 | Working Hard for Onederland

This post is vulnerable & scary, but I feel like it’s necessary, too. I wrote on Instagram last night about my need for public accountability & desire to get healthy. I’m making this a blog series as well so that I never forget how hard I worked to reach my goals, big & small!

Andrew & Kayla | Fort Monroe Beloved Session

This is the second session we’ve done at Fort Monroe together, & I think I like this one even better than the last! If you’ve been around for awhile, you know that Andrew & Kayla are some of our favorite friends. We’ve enjoyed going through life with them, & are thankful to the Lord for bringing them our way!

Fall Mini Session Special!

Can you believe it’s almost SEPTEMBER!? When did this happen??? Almost September means almost October, & October means we get to celebrate our TWO year wedding anniversary. Again – when did this happen!? Ah, time. 🙂 

I’m so excited to be offering a different type of mini session this year! In the past, I have designated one day to minis, & families/couples have signed up for a session time on that day. This year, I’m offering a limited amount of sessions over the course of two months!

Jordan & Jessica | Outer Banks Engagement Session

Jordan & Jessica are having a destination wedding in the Outer Banks in October & we were SO honored when they chose us as their wedding photographers! When they made plans to head to Kitty Hawk to finalize some wedding details, it was conveniently on a weekend that we were free too, so we were able to schedule their engagements!

Bodie Mitchell | A Birth Story

At 6:30 on Friday morning, my brother, Seth, called me to say that Stacey’s contractions were six minutes apart & they were headed to the hospital. By 7:00, he was calling me again to tell me they thought Bodie was going to be here SOON!
