Hello friends!! So we usually drive about 20 minutes from home to get blog pics, and thought we only knew how to shoot during golden hour (we’re learning!), so this made finding time to shoot extra difficult. Between revolving around Shiloh’s naps/bedtime & Christian’s work, along with whatever the sun was doing/finding shade, we were basically never shooting anymore & I couldn’t stand it! I love having a schedule/routine and keeping consistent, and I had honestly gotten so behind. Last week we decided to go out on a limb and shoot in the middle of the day. We had to stay close to home because Christian had a work call shortly after, so we did a little exploring and ended up finding some really lovely spots right around the corner from where we live! I was so excited, AND our photos (in my opinion) were the best we’ve ever taken. So we took a risk and now we have so much more freedom/flexibility! So glad we gave it a shot. OH – I’ve also been experimenting with Angie Garcia’s Photoshop Actions for Bloggers and am LOVING how they make my photos look!! I bought this package for $75 and it honestly took me a ton of playing around before I felt like I was doing it right, but now that I’m more comfortable I like it so much better than Lightroom. She has videos on how to use them if you’re new to Photoshop. If you’re a blogger looking to up your editing game, I highly recommend these! (not sponsored – just really love!)

Ok I’ve rambled enough about the photos haha! How bout these shorts?! So cute. They’re soooo comfy. I didn’t realize how wrinkled they were from sitting in the car, but oh well, #reallife. I think this will definitely be a go-to outfit for the summer! You can shop the whole look below as well 🙂 xoxo
