Our 2 year Anniversary Picture Session!

Quick story.

It’s my husband and I’s anniversary today!

2 years ago, I could not have imagined how my world would so dramatically change & expand when Mr. Barnett waltz into my life and swept me off my cajun toes.

He is my calm in the storm. My business partner (the details side of Vivid Dream Wedding Photography). My warrior. God brought him into my life to open my heart, light up my world, & broaden my horizons. Josh has done that & so much more.

Knowing Josh, is the only reason I ever began photography + really deciding to make life style photography/wedding photography a career and life passion. It all started when my new mother in law so sweetly put her heart into planning our marvelous engagement party, just a few weeks before our wedding. At the end of the night my in laws blessed us with a camera. BUT it was my first real camera and I can’t recall why, but I began crying in front of everyone. I was so thrilled, and overwhelmed with all the blessings reigning in my life that month. God had answered every detail of my hearts desires, even down to the simplest thing of being able to take photos on a decent camera. The camera was just the icing on the cake. At the time, just the opportunity to capture moments with the new love of my life seemed like everything I could have ever hoped for. So I wept. No shame, just pure joy and an over-flow of all the emotions I couldn’t contain. Today, again, I am sentimental about how our paths crossed, what Josh + his family means to me, & how love and a new camera could/would change my world. I am thankful, I am hopeful, and the future is brimming with opportunity.

So to document the love along the way, we asked a local photographer Kristen Soileau Portraits to take our pictures for this celebration of 2 wonderful years together! Obviously it’s important to me to document everything, lol. I’ve missed out before by NOT documenting, and I refuse to let it ever happen again. It is so important to capture the years together, so you can always look back & see the life + love experienced. You never know what life holds. Get documented & photographed while you can, before it’s too late and your wishing that you had.

Wishing you all to find a love that will transform your world, and a passion that will carry through the Hard times.

Love you all,

Xox0

Rosemary Beach Trip
After a weekend filled with weddings and engagement shoots, it's wonderful to look back at all the fun I had in between work. Work is also fun BUT here is the FUN FUN that we had. I had my first destination wedding in Florida, and the next day I was able to make a trip down to Rosemary which was only about 45 minutes away from where we were.
