Photography 365 Project: (Day 144 – Life)

Life is old photographs served best with a side of snickers and groans.  Life is freezing time in your mind and soaking the present into your pores.  Life is unleashing the imagination onto the blank canvass of future.

Life is staying up til 2 in the morning laughing like school children and playing “what if”.  Life is staying up til 2 in the morning watering sheets with your tears.

Life is carefully-ironed black suits and white dresses twirling into a fusion of grey on the dance floor.  Life is torn socks, ripped jeans and well-loved sweaters.

Life is relationship and honesty – with ourselves, with God, with each other.  Life is about never giving up on the things that truly matter and letting go of the things that don’t.

Life is opening your heart and opening your home.  Life is trusting.  Life is being broken and being healed – and all the heart’s winding paths interlaced between.

Life is passion, conviction, and grace.  Life is beauty, pain, ugliness, joy.

Life is messy – in our hearts, in our kitchens, and in our relationships.

Life is chaotic and unpredictable.  Life is art.  Life is untamed beauty not held captive by rules or “should be’s”.

Life is paved roads, un-explored trails, broken fences, and battle fields.  Life is an adventure.  Life is uncertain and does not operate according to our time schedules.

Life cannot be tamed, only lived.  To tame it is to kill it with a quiet suffocation, like a slowly fading photograph left too long in the sun.

Hi! I’m Laura, a coffee-loving, outgoing introvert with a passion for motherhood and photography. This blog is an extension of who I am. I’m a mommy to three little boys, and I love to create and write. I’m also loud, tend to over share, and am a type-A personality in the extreme. I’m a little pensive and can be a lot sarcastic.  I believe that motherhood is something more than just to be survived! This is both a space where I share glimpses into my business and the photo shoots I do, and also my personal space to just write about whatever is on my heart. So grab a cup of coffee, come stay for a while and let’s get to know each other. 🙂
