A Morning Routine featured on Cottage Hill

I'm so excited to share my favorites from this shoot with you guys! Cottage Hill reached out to me this spring about creating a shoot that displayed a mother's morning routine and incorporated a healthy breakfast. I immediately thought of my multi-talented friend, Hannah Zieschang to help me put it all together! I loved brainstorming for this shoot and thinking about how we were going to create it. These are the things we wanted to portray in a mother's ideal morning routine.

1. Her getting time with Jesus first thing so she's full and able to meet her day with a whole-heart.

2. Her having little moments with her children & husband.

3. Her making breakfast and serving her kids. 

This is obviously a styled shoot, so it probably doesn't look this glamorous for you mom's every day. But the meaning behind these precious photos are what's important! Hopefully all the prettiness and sweet snuggles just inspires you to be intentional with your mornings!

Thank you everyone who helped make this shoot happen!

After much rumination, Sam and I selected Kira & Brandon Bronaugh! Congratulations you two! I will be contacting you soon!  

Kira's entry:       

"Yay for chances to brag on Brandon! One way that Brandon consistently loves and cares for me is by always making time for me. Even if it's something he doesn't want to do or enjoy doing, even if he's really tired or has other things to get done.. Brandon always takes time to help, listen, or do some kind of act of service that blesses me. Whether it's doing the dishes, helping me with my icky physics homework, packing my lunch, or simply looking for a chance to see me throughout the day to give me a hello and a kiss. He is a man of quality time and acts of service! God has truly blessed me with this strong, gentle and patient man!"
