Well hello there! Jess here, I have something new I’d like to share with you. First I’d like to say thanks for stopping by to see what I have to say. I appreciate you taking your time to read my thoughts and hear what I have to say.
Here goes nothing.
Our blog has been a space that has doubled as a second place to share our work with you. I think it’s time for some change. Well, to be quite honest, I had the (amazing) opportunity to be mentored by an incredible woman who I admire very much who shared many thoughts with me. One of which struck me and hasn’t loosed it’s grip.
Our site is lacking something. It’s lacking us. We are a husband and wife team who love what we do but that’s all we’ve ever told you. That’s about to change. Not because I have more time on my hands to write blog posts. Not because I need an outlet for something else to do and not because someone is telling me that I should do this. It’s happening because I want to connect with you. Yes, you!
This is something that has weighed on my heart for several years. I never believed that I could write. I’m a photographer, not a writer. But you know what? That’s okay. I respect the talent that God has given me and I run with it. Writing is fun for me when I stop pressuring myself to have it be “perfect”. So there you have it. I am letting down my guard, I am knocking down the walls and telling you first hand that I sometimes will use the wrong punctuation, my grammar may be off and I will use words that are probably not in the dictionary like tots, imma and 5ish. I am okay with that because it’s just who I am.
We have the opportunity to work with many amazing people and I want to share more of that with you. Our family life is growing and changing with many exciting adventures ahead; I want to share that with you. There may be a time when we go through something similar, I want to connect with you while you go through it. Don’t hesitate to comment on our posts (when I can figure out how to turn that option on) or email us, we want to hear from you!
** UPDATE** I figured out how to turn comments on, yay!! See below :)
So there you have it folks. It’s my something new. Who knows, maybe I’ll ever get Michael to write a thing or two. He has much better grammar than I do so you’ll know it’s him. :)
Tomorrow, I will be sharing with you a very personal story. I can’t think of a better way to make our blog more personal than to share this story with you. I sure hope you come back to read and see it. Yes, there are photos.
Get excited people, get excited.
I know I am :)
xoxo – Jess
