happy valentine’s day!

It’s that time of year again! You’d think that as a wedding photographer, and a proponent of all love in general, I would love Valentine’s Day. Not exactly true. I’ve written about my thoughts on Valentine’s Day before, so let’s just say I don’t hate it. But it’s not my favorite day either.

But you know what makes Valentine’s Day super awesome? Having an excuse to take photos of my kids! Okay, let’s face it – I don’t need an excuse for that, but they don’t need to know that!

It’s still way too cold here in the South (it’s snowing today, for goodness sake!), but I made them get dressed up for 15 minutes of some quick photos. We didn’t even go anywhere. We just went out in the driveway and took advantage of the sun almost peeking out that day. Seriously, winter, it’s time for you to leave. But thanks for giving me  some pretty light for a few minutes.

I know, I know!

Sigh. I’m the luckiest mom in the world.

Here’s to love. And family. And telling everyone you love that you love them. Every day.

Cheers!
