Throwback Thursday ~ OBX 2009

Dear little sister, I’m sorry in advance. For you are getting married in just a few short weeks (July 20) and I feel it’s my MOH duty to enter you into my first “Throwback Thursday” feature. You’ll thank me one day.

You’re welcome.

This Throwback Thursday feature covers two separate progressions…

(1) The progression of “girl with a fancy camera and speedlight she doesn’t know how to use” to “sure, I’ll hire you as my photographer!” and

(2) The progression of “girl with a flat tummy who likes to model” to “girl with a covered flat tummy who likes a boy so much she said she’d marry him!”

I will never forget the laughter me and my two sisters shared after these images were taken on the beach in the Outer Banks in 2009. Seriously, it was hilarious. I have not included some of the best outtakes because I didn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings but these are pretty hilarious if I do say so myself. They were taken between the hours of 5-6am because, naturally, we were going for a sunrise/high fashion/Sports Illustrated style. Problem is *this girl* didn’t know how to work her Speedlight.

Then there was “The Pier Shoot” later in the same day. I’ll let the images speak for themselves.

More recently, the engagement session (Aug 2012). So much more wholesome and my style! I love these adorable images of my youngest sister and her betrothed.  In just a few short weeks, we’ll all be celebrating their matrimony in the great state of Colorado! Estes Park to be exact. It’s going to be amazing!

I couldn’t throw this memory back without including some sweet images of “the middle sister.” Even though these are underexposed and the white balance is all wonky, I still do love these of her.

Finally, at least I understood how to make a bangin’ silhouette back then (though I really should straighten that horizon).

productivity for working moms

welcome!

I'm Jessica!

I used to glorify "busy." If I wasn't busy, I wasn't doing enough. But when I became a mama, my entire outlook shifted.

 

The only way out involved a complete overhaul of my time, money & communication systems.

 

Today, I'm doing LESS and achieving more.

It's a productivity dream!

I'm still learning (and always will be!), but my purpose here is to help YOU achieve this level of space in your life too.
