I could hear music on the other side of this pale yellow door and although that may not sound scary to you, I was terribly nervous they would see me on their doorstep and come guns blazing out to get me! But let’s be real, with a soft yellow door and such cheerful potted flowers they probably would have offered me cookies.
Cheers to you sweet yellow door and mystery friends inside for creating such a welcoming and happy little space that made me feel both thrill and appreciation!
I hope and wonder if the owners of this lovely space feel the same emotions I did about what they created. I sure hope so! I’m (obviously) one of those people that thinks pretty deeply, I tend to hope that any ordinary day holds the possibility of growth or greatness & sometimes even hunt for it. Typically it’s the unexpected, subtle things that captivate me the most; like this small side entrance hiding alongside of the huge, stunning home it belongs to.
Maybe it’s the part of me that is rooting for the underdog, or maybe the part that is captivated by the little details, or maybe the space of my heart that believes in the power of small victories in achieving the big vision. Whichever it is, this little door seemed to catch my attention and allow my heart to wander with curiosity.
Not all of my photos have a story or enlightening moment behind them, but I’m proud of them all. Each one is a little step forward and each one gives me the opportunity to share a small piece of my heart with you! 📷 @kelseyhettinga .

This has been a funky week. I’ve had a sore throat for the last 5 days, I still feel like I’m settling back in to our normal after being on vacation & I’ve just felt a little off. I’m certain you guys can relate with weeks like this, too.
It’s one of those weeks I feel like I just need a really good (ugly) cry, all of the cozy things in the world and a day to process some deep feelings that I’m having about stuff going on in my world. I appreciate that God allows us to feel things, process them, go through the motions and then He helps us pick up the pieces and begin to rebuild. Wether it’s just an emotional week or it’s a major life battle; they’re the same to Him. He cares about the smaller, hard moments & days just as much as He cares about the hard years & lifelong battles that some people face.

Airport apparel. Cozy + easy is the only way! Also, all the chenille sweaters floating around right now are the comfiest!! This one is from @zara & I’m rarely not wearing it… even when I’m sleeping I’m wearing it, I’m not kidding. Ps. Socks borrowed from my 6 year old daughter, thanks Delaney!

You should know that when I’m shooting, I always have music playing (usually in back pocket) and there is always impromptu dancing and singing that happens! It’s the only reason I’m not terribly uncomfortable during these photoshoots. Dancing is like therapy for me, I get crazy ya’ll. Like, I don’t hold back for nobody!! This is just a moment of the passion captured by the lovely @happyphotoco who encouraged me to move to the beat of my own drum during our shoot! 🖤ps. More styling with this fur jacket coming soon beccccaaaaaause look at it! Swoon.
