One Week at Walt Disney World with a One-Year-Old

I’m finally sharing our Disney World experience, including the good, the bad, and the cranky. I added a few of the life-saving things we packed (and what we should have packed), Disney-inspired outfits, tips for traveling with a teething toddler, and cute photos I never posted!

If you follow me on Instagram, you already know we went to Walt Disney World the week after Mother’s Day. We went with family, so we had a big group to keep Emerson entertained. Dallas and his family had been before, but this was my first time. I didn’t really know what to expect, much less with a teething one-year-old, but YOLO, right?

I’m finally sharing our photos from the trip (the good, the bad, and the cranky), as well as including some of my favorite Disney gear and life-saving toddler products we packed.

Senior Portraits // Alyssa

Last weekend I had the opportunity to take the beautiful Alyssa’s senior photos in Marion and Gruene, TX. Alyssa is graduating from Marion High School in a couple of months and is interested in pursing agricultural science. We had a lot of fun trying to make Alyssa laugh, playing with how to shoot in the super bright sun after all the rain we had last week, and even found a crawfish hanging out in the river!

Prom 2016

Because I had so much fun taking my sister-in-law’s senior pictures, I decided to take her senior prom photos as well. And bonus, I invested in a new camera! These were all taken with Nikon’s D330 and edited with Photoshop CS6. It was a really good opportunity for me to get some experience shooting groups of people, rather than just portrait shots. Although it’s easy to get good shots when your subjects are this gorgeous! As always, I welcome any feedback and can’t wait to play around with my D330 more.

This might turn into a photography blog…

I honestly thought that was what my college years were for and that I would have my shit together by now, but I was very, very wrong. College gave me a clear-cut path for what my life was supposed to be. It gave me structure with deadlines, course catalogs, assignments, applications, schedules, and attendance policies. And then I graduated, got married, went on my honeymoon, looked around at all my choices and said, “okay, now what?” And the universe gave me white noise.

I’m not even going to try to come up with excuses for why it’s been so long since I’ve posted on here. Shit happens. I’m trying to get it together. And this is probably mostly going to be me rambling, because I haven’t written in awhile. I’m sorry in advance.

My quarter-life crisis is in full effect, which means I’m constantly looking for new and exciting ways to fill my time, even though I have very little free time. I guess it’s not really to fill my time as much as it is to find some sort of purpose in my life. There’s been a reoccurring theme since turning 23 in which I decide I really want to do this or be that or go here or try this new something, and then I realize: I hate all of those things. Those things are not for me. Better try this new thing.
