My greatest and hardest adventure.

These two...they are like my heart walking (well mostly running/climbing) outside of my body. I look at them some days and just cry tears of joy and thankfulness that God picked ME to be their Momma!

But I am going to be is not always easy. No way. Parenting is by far the hardest adventure I have ever been on and this is just the start! I could not do it without God's guidance and grace or my husband's outstanding parenting skills. (He seriously rocks at this.) 

So whatever current adventure, journey, or challenge you are taking on and trying to conquer...know that you have been given that for a reason! It may get difficult and seem impossible some days...but keep going!

Don't let anyone or anything steal your joy or steal your hustle!




Happy Valentines Day, lovelies! (AKA..."Eat All The Chocolate You Want Day)

If you have a special someone I hope you are getting spoiled with all your favorite things!!

If you have not found that someone yet...I want you to know you are SO LOVED!! Treat yourself today!!!

Since love is in the air, I thought it only fitting to share this session completely bursting with LOVE!!! I photographed Simon + Erin's engagements just two weeks ago and this weekend they are getting MARRIED in Savannah and taking us with them!! The excitement on their faces as they talked about their Savannah wedding was so contagious!! It will no doubt be a total DREAM!! 

If you want to follow along on our weekend in sure to follow us on our Instagram story!! @thesamanthalynnphotography (We will do our best to post more than just the delicious food we eat!)
