I finally broke down and wrote myself a blogging schedule or editorial calendar, if you’d like to get technical. I have so many beautiful weddings just hanging around on my hard drive, waiting to be blogged. I’m trying to gain control. This is week one of the schedule.
However, I’m already breaking my plan because as I was scrolling through pictures, these images stuck out and I had to laugh to myself.
Shayla and John are one of the most loveable, kindest and delightful couples you will ever meet. They’re the type of people who instantly add a ray of light to a darkened room. And while I wasn’t there to witness the moment, I can just imagine what was happening in these pictures – I’m certain that Kellie was telling them to be serious and not smile. But that’s not natural. That doesn’t represent them at all.
I’ve never seen a time when sweet Shayla didn’t have an expression of joy on her face. And while I can imagine John being slightly more serious, a conversation doesn’t go too far without his lips forming a curve either.
While I love a portrait with a solemn pose and calm expression, in this instance it just doesn’t seem natural. Shayla had to hide her laughter and John was caught with a couple humorous looks on his face as well.

I was quickly reminded that we all should just be ourselves. Do what you do and whatever feels natural. Be one of a kind and always an original. That’s how to always guarentee the best results.
There’s your Friday pep talk friends, may the little reminder carry you onward to a great weekend.
PS – Stay tuned for the rest of Shayla & John’s wedding which I’ll be sharing next week0
