I thought this would be the perfect time to update everyone on what is happening in my life!
First off, I want to let everyone know of something. The day after Christmas I was taken to the ER severely dehydrated and in a lot of pain. After multiple blood tests, plenty of fluids, and a few scans, the ER doctor told me I had and very inflamed colon. I wasn't really sure what it was and all I remember was that I just wanted the pain to disappear. After a few hours of being able to hold food down and not feel nauseous, the doctor came back in to explain to me that I had colitis. I currently had an infection and will continue to have them throughout periods of my life. I have random flareups and they show up whenever they want. I've done more testing and scans in the last 6 months than I have in my lifetime. I do run the risk of it turning into ulcerative colitis which obviously is worse. Although I am in a tremendous amount of pain and can sometimes not move, that will never stop me from performing to my absolute best and will never prevent me from missing any moments.
Second, I am going to be marrying the love of my life in 4 short months! We will be getting married on November 4th, 2017 and yes I am booked every weekend in September and October! It has been 1 year since we've been engaged and I can't believe how close we are already. We are both just totally ready for our honeymoon! We will be going to Hawaii to relax, explore, and enjoy our news lives as Mr. and Mrs. At this point your probably wondering, "hmmm so who does a photographer have photograph her own wedding." Well let me tell you about this amazing photographer I have been following since they first started! Ben Adams of Style and Story Creative, located in Columbus, will be capturing our big day for us with his wife Lacey! To even begin to write out the amount of excitement I have just isn't possible. They are incredible people and phenomenal photographers, and I couldn't be more grateful for them! Shawn and I are very excited for everything to happen in the next 4 months! SO that means if you want fall pictures to get them in September or October before I stop taking sessions for a short period of time!
These are a few of my favorites from our engagement session at Hocking Hills by the incredible Style & Story Creative!
