tminspired You know that moment when you meet someone new and while you're hanging out it dawns on you that it feels like you've known them forever? That was the case with @erikadenhoed & @sr.griff. With Erika being a fellow photographer, we did a trade shoot in the city of #Chicago. We had a blast and grabbed a late dinner after. It was one of my favorite nights of the entire trip. 🏻 2d

tminspired Happy Monday! I want to share with you a @kickstarter project I'm SO EXCITED ABOUT. @maryboyden is the editor of @mommabearmag, and when was telling me about this dream of hers, I fell in love with the idea and I understand how important it is for there to be HOPE for motherhood. There really isn't a resource like this - it's unlike anything else. (Oh, and heads up, in case you were wondering: I'm not planning on becoming a mom for at least 5 years. But this project already brings me so much joy and I can't wait to get my own copy. That's how good it's going to be!)
-
The Momma Bear Mission: "A hope for motherhood. We believe in grace over perfection, and community over competition. Through our bi-annual print publication, we share inspiring stories that get us excited for the joys of motherhood, and practical stories that help us confidently conquer the hardships."
-
Momma Bear Magazine has currently raised over $5,000 toward their goal to get the first issue printed. They have just over a week left to go and I would LOVE if you could contribute to the campaign. I fully support this project and I know you will, too. (There are even some extra-awesome goodies up for grabs, too!)

tminspired Welcome to my evening routine with some of my favorite things. Tonight includes the new @darling instead of Netflix (Who am I?! But seriously, these magazines are THAT good!) It also includes #LittleLilyCujo - who is super mad at me in this photo. True life of a photographer/instagrammer: I set up this shot 4 times and it probably took a good 20 minutes. I didn't like the placement, I lost my balance, or Lily would just get up and move away. In the end, it's not perfect. But hey, life isn't perfect, right? It's important to remember that we shouldn't "show off" our lives like they are perfect, because that's simply not reality. That's not my motivation for being on this app, anyway. I just want to be real with you and inspire you and to also be inspired. So let's all enjoy life for how it REALLY is and have fun! Let's eat good food (even if your yogurt is slightly frozen and your raspberries are slightly mushy) and love ourselves (even if you have a weird tan line on your feet from your flip flops and your skinny jeans and they don't look hashtag cute) and love each other (because nothing bad will come of that) and hold our animals close (even if your dog is upset with you for obsessing over a square). Let's just embrace life as it is and treat ourselves to what fuels our joy and focus on that, yeah? 🏻 2w
  •   pamelaburkhalter Love the pic & absolutely LOVE the post! 2w
  •   anatasia_vanessa Fff? 2w
  •   tminspired Thank you! I wasn't so sure about it, haha. Ahh, the pressure of wanting to be perfect! I honestly speak to myself in these posts - always exactly what I need to hear. Haha @pamelaburkhalter 2w
  •   brittanystoess I LOVE this post! It's kind of ridiculous how caught up I can get in making things look perfect (even when I'm constantly preaching authenticity & being okay with imperfections). Thanks for the reminder :) (Also, isn't Darling the best?! So much good stuff, and completely gorgeous at that!) 1w
  •   tminspired YES. It's hard not to get caught up in it sometimes. I'm glad I'm not the only one! And yes, darling is so great and so beautiful!! @brittanystoess 1w
  •   _mirmaid Looks like a perfect night! 4d
  •   tminspired It was wonderful!! @_mirmaid 4d

tminspired This week has been a week full of stepping outside of my comfort zone, and it's actually been great. God is good, you guys. I'm reminded of his love when I see beauty like this old and beautiful greenhouse in Chicago. He's given us so many flowers and plants and all of nature to enjoy here on earth. If he cares so much about the intricate details of these things, we can be filled with comfort being assured that he cares so much more for us. Truly understanding that can be almost overwhelming. It's so comforting to know how great his love is and it helps me to feel safe as I step outside of my comfort zone, which normally generates so much fear in my heart. What is one thing you can do this week that would take you outside of your comfy cozy zone?

P.S. There's an awesome giveaway going on right now and it'll be ending tomorrow! Get your name in there - the reward is great! You can see all of the details and enter through my previous post. Good luck! 🏻

tminspired Super hot days like today makes me want to jump backwards to days like this in Chicago. Cold, rainy, and windy. @nathanochoa and I got coffee and walked miles and miles and discovered so many fun shops. It was such a good day. 2w

tminspired Put together some fun packages today for my recently married couples. I had the chance to be creative and used packaging that reminded me specifically of each couple and their wedding day. I love my job. #tminspiredphotography 4w

tminspired I think it's important to find the little things in everyday life that make you happy. - Paula Cole

Yesterday, we went to the zoo to watch the animals play and walked through this stunning greenhouse. God's creations really make me happy. We're going again today before we catch our flight back home. What makes you happy?
