I am having one of those mornings… a morning that comes around a lot lately. One of those mornings where you have to pinch yourself because, Really?? Is this really my life? What have I done to be so blessed. I am sitting here with my sweet baby boy ( who is now busy playing with the remote control ) while I quickly jot down these thoughts so I can later look at it later( on a day where I am not seeing things as clearly ). I am looking at my son with complete awe. I never would have dreamed another person could bring me so much absolute joy. There is no better way to explain it. I am truly filled up for the first time in my life. I always felt like something was missing… until now.

But that’s not all. I had the glorious opportunity to sleep in until 9am today!!! Why, because I am married to a man that gives himself to our marriage 100% and shares ALL of the parenting joys and duties with me 50/50. He woke me this morning ONLY because he had to leave for work. I am sure that one of the reasons I love wedding photography, is because I want everyone to get to experience the kind of happiness, fun and fulfillment that I get out of having a true partner for life.

But still, that’s not all. I am inspired by all of this gratitude and that inspiration will be put to use today while photographing LeeAnn + Matt’s wedding, here in Carolina Beach, NC. Waking up the day of a wedding is always exciting. Another opportunity to capture love, emotion and LIFE! I live for emotion. It feeds me. I love laughter, but I also love tears because you can’t have one without the other. I am so honored and so blessed to get to spend my “work days” creating art out of people’s memories.
In just a few short hours, I will have my toes in the sand and a camera in my hands, LIFE IS GOOD!

I hope you are having one of these days, too. If so, I would love to hear what makes you “pinch” : )

To end this post, I am going to share with you a slideshow featuring the work of the wonderfully talented Dana Jackson Photography. It is very clear in this video why I am so happy : ) Add in the husband and the dream job, and I am pretty much living the dream!
