There are moments in our career that challenge us beyond words. Usually you dont talk about the negative ones, only the positive ones. We have been challenged this year with so much but we always try and find the good in those challenges. I flew to California a couple years ago for a workshop with @kellyoshiro and I found myself in a dimly lit room with the most gorgeous table setting and only my film camera. With no tripod in site I bucked up and did my best. Pushed the film, used a chair to steady my hand and took a deep breath before each click of the camera. I feel like this is what I've been doing in life. Deep breaths, quick prayers and hoping for the best. I've come to terms it won't always be wonderful and that I'm human just like the rest of you but held at a higher standard. There isn't much room to make mistakes, there isn't room to have babies, get sick or be emotional. Its one of the hardest parts of this job, that I haven't had the opportunity to just be human sometimes. I wasn't given the opportunity to mourn my babies I lost because I had a wedding to shoot the next day. I'm grateful for this wonderful job and all its done for our family but I wish people had more grace. The people who are in the business of serving others work so hard at putting everyone elses lives before their own. When you take a step back you realize you're only human.
Ok so mid day deep thoughts only mean its been a day to forget so excuse my super honest post. Enjoy the gorgeous flowers by Kelly styled by @joyproctor other details from @theark_@writtenwordcalligraphy@photovisionprints#henryphotographs#bekind

Sometimes I just want to post a beautiful photograph, you know what I mean? I'm excited to start the week with a happy photo and set the tone for a month of gratitude. Its best to express our gratitude so this month thats what we are going to do. I'm thankful for couples who have taken us to beautiful places like Palmetto Bluff. We were beside ourselves with the hospitality, the gorgeous scenery and a little sunshine. We have loved traveling a little bit for weddings and we are so blessed to be able to do that. #henryphotographs
Last night volume 3 of @tsgcolumbus launched and we are so unbelievably excited to finally see it all come together. As always it was incredible working with all the businesses who know the value of being a part of The Scout Guide. But if I'm being honest, its always so fun working with @abigail_fredelake . She's become one of my dearest friends, encourager and such an inspiration for Boss women in Columbus! Thanks for another amazing year, cant wait for volume 4!
