Do weekends go by too fast or is it just me?
Erik and I had to be up earlyyy both Saturday and Sunday mornings and we were up late each night as well so it’s felt like one really long day.
😴😴
But, that being said, this weekend was perfect. We picked out our Christmas tree, decorated it, set up the train underneath the tree, got some Christmas crafts and started the cookie extravaganza of 2019!
🍪 🍪
What’s the cookie extravaganza of 2019 you ask? It’s when my Mamma and I make batches upon batches of multiple cookies.
For example, today alone we did 4 batches of chocolate chip cookies, 1 batch of white chocolate chip cookies, 1 batch of Andes mints candy cookies, and 2 batches of peanut butter blossoms.
🤗🤗
And tomorrow starts another round!
But before that gets started at least we get to relax for the rest of the evening with our feet kicked up enjoying the newest season of @thecrownnetflix

Welp, we did it. The cutting down of the Sheehan Christmas Tree of 2019 has been successfully completed.
And we got it into the house and set up in a fairly acceptable amount of time.
👍🏻👍🏻
I’ve been seeing a lot of videos this year of themed Christmas trees. I’ll be honest, I didn’t really know that was a thing.
Our Christmas tree is a collection of ornaments that Erik got each year as a kid, photos of him as a baby, photos of me as a baby, special memento ornaments commemorating lifetime milestones...it’s just one big memory lane mish-mosh.
And I absolutely love it.
🥰🥰
I love that I can look at our tree and be reminded of so many feel good memories. That’s what I love about this holiday do much. Remembering the traditions and those who started them.
It’s just a sweet sweet way to hold our loved ones who are no longer with us close to our hearts.
♥️♥️
How do you decorate your Christmas tree?
White lights, colored lights, ornamental balls, or random ornaments?

Are you a go out and blow off some steam kind of person or are you a stay at home and unwind persona?
💃🏼🏠
Originally, we had plans to go out and have an evening around town buuuut then we decided to stay home, cook up some steaks, and just relax.
🥩 🥩
It was honestly the best choice. Not one single bit am I having FOMO of what’s happening at the newest restaurant or getting anything instagramable.
📱 📱
And to be honest, I feel like that’s something you have to kinda grow into.
I don’t know about you but I always feel like there’s this expectation to go out and be doing something on the weekends. You know, work all week party all weekend sort of thing.
But I am totally loving staying at home, not caring about the covering up the pimples on my face, or having shoes on that match my outfit.
Not everyone can be ok with the slow, even if that’s what they actually need, but I’m thankful that I am ok with the slow periods of my life, the time given to myself to enjoy just being.
🤗🤗

Anyone else check out @spotify 2019 music review?
🎶 🎶
It was kinda fun to see how my tastes evolved as the year went on. Apparently my music is very much seasonally driven so it was cool to check out the evolution of those changes.
🍁 ☀️ 🌸
It was prettyyy undeniable to deny that @florenceandthemachine were (and still are) my top favorite artist.
👌🏻👌🏻
I also loved seeing that @lcbcworship influenced music made it into my playlists signaling my return to the church and inviting the Lord back into my life this year.
🙏🏻🙏🏻
But it was also fun to peep that @dollyparton rounded out my favorite artists! We all need a little Dolly in our lives!
😁😁
Who was your top artist of 2019 that you listened to?

Remember the story about the tortoise and the hare? You know, the whole learning lesson of slow and steady wins the race.
🐢 🐇
I feel like this week has been the embodiment of that for our house.
🏠 🏠
Erik and I have been focused on getting a lot of home projects done, finally getting our house setup the way we really want it to be and so forth.
It feels like a never ending project but we’ve made some real progress this week.
Instead of setting these lofty goals of “Today is going to be the day we get ALL THE THINGS done!” we have instead set realistic accomplishments of only two to three things each evening along with a quitting time.
⏰ ⏰
It has helped us be more diligent, more productive, and even exceed our own expectations.
It’s a good feeling!
🤗🤗
Now the goal is to keep this positive productiveness moving towards other parts of my life that could use a boost!
🚀🚀

How easily do you give your trust?
😬😬
It’s super difficult to take that plunge and just give yourself over to the unknown.
Now, there are many layers of trust, it’s like an onion (Shrek reference anyone?), and I’ve learned how incredibly valuable it is for me to trust clients and vice versa.
When I’m coming to shoot clients I’m coming from out of state, to a location I may not have been before so I need my clients to trust me to find a beautiful backdrop and take care of them while we’re spending our time together. And with respect I need to trust my clients that when plan A doesn’t work that it’s OK and plan B is waiting for them.
When that serendipitous relationship works hand in hand you can create some really beautiful magic.
🙌🏻🙌🏻
I am just chomping on the bit to start editing Josh and Steph’s couple session! It was so much fun to explore and discover with them and Washington couldn’t have served up any more perfect weather!

Where do you see beauty in the world?
🗺 🗺
Do you see it in others helping others? Do you see it in God’s beauty in nature? Do you see it in the life lessons you acquire through experiences of life?
👶🏻👩🏼👵🏻
The hardest beauty to see though is ones own. We’re so full of criticism of how we look, the wrinkles in our face, the gray hairs on our head, or the extra weight showing itself around our chin.
📷 📷
So I challenge you. Instead of criticizing yourself when you look a picture of yourself I want you to look at a photo and remember how happy in that moment you were. Where you were and the people who were with you sharing the experience.
♥️♥️
Maybe if we focus on the love we feel then we’ll worry less about the materialistic side of things and be able to see the beauty God has always intended for us to see.

If you looked downriver the sky was just beginning to turn pink. Hints of the new morning was breaking through. As the sun’s dawn rays started to warm up the frosted landscape you could see the mist lifting around us. Fog rolled down the creek with the flow of water. There was total silence around us other than our conversation and music playing in the background.

This has just not been the week for me when it comes to deep, thoughtfully written captions. It’s just even a miracle I’m posting on IG at this point.
🙌🏻🙌🏻
Some weeks you beat ‘em, some weeks you join ‘em, and some weeks you just fly by the seat of your pants.
👖 👖
I’m not really sure what I am this week but I’ll celebrate the victories that I can.

Do you ever feel like you need to keep face because that’s what people expect of you?
🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️
It’s really difficult for me to know how to balance the boundaries of being a business owner with the real human being who has emotions.
⚖️⚖️
These past few weeks have been tough. They’ve been filled with a lot of good but they’ve been tough and it’s hard to feel like you have a footing in where you stand when you just constantly feel like everything is sliding out of your grasp.
🎢🎢
I knew I was feeling out of sorts but the past few days I’ve had to really dig my heels in and pump the brakes of that downward spiral. I’ve had to tell myself to forget about ALL the things I need to get done and focus on one thing I can do.
💡💡
Once I did that, wrote down some accomplishments from each night, and a prayer that came upon my heart to the Lord I knew that I had this. I got this.
💪🏻💪🏻

Your photography is absolutely stunning. I love all of the candid shots, the natural, relaxed, "caught in the moment" ones that so many photographers forget. Life "happens", and you're able to catch that in your photos.
