Meet Chad and Sara.  Some of the sweetest, most loving and kind people you’ll ever know.  They joined us in Indy back in the late fall after moving from Georgia (from gorgeous southern land to flat farms, what were they thinking??) so Chad could join my husband in youth ministry at our church. Let me tell you, I am so thankful for these two!  As soon as they moved here, I felt like I connected with them almost immediately.  They’re always finding a reason for joy, always encouraging, always blessing others.  They love coffee, they have the most adorable labradoodle named Ralph, and they are always up for an adventure. I’d say that’s a fantastic start for building a friendship 😉

I was so excited when Chad asked me to take some photos of the two of them for Valentine’s day (although we took them much later, obviously, since it was so stinking cold in February!).  We ventured out with the sunrise, a first for me since most people prefer sunset, and I am SO glad we did!  Sunsets are great and all, with their orange glow in that golden hour, but there was something so much softer about the sunrise.  It has a totally different look, and when you’ve caught the best of the sun, you still have light to work with so you aren’t rushing for time!  It made for a great, relaxed (albeit a bit chilly) morning with great friends, complete with coffee and breakfast afterwards.  What more could I ask for?

office pride appreciation (mini session)

My incredible parents own a commercial cleaning business..they’ve built it from the ground up, starting from one employee (my stepdad) and moving on up to over 40 employees in just a few years. (I was one of those employees in my engaged-to-be-married months!) Now my stepdad and my mom run the business together, which is the most adorable thing ever. The respect and admiration I have for the way they run their business can’t be stated in a blog post; they have given everything to God, given up on some dreams to make way for others, gone through some rough patches with learning how to run their own business, and have been blessed immensely for their hard work and honorable standards.

All this to say, a lot of the credit can also be given to their amazing employees. Cleaning is not an easy job..in fact, I would argue it’s one of the most difficult. Late nights, crazy messy offices (when I cleaned, there was an office that CONSISTENTLY had food crumbs and smears everywhere, and let’s not even go into detail about how sick the bathrooms could be sometimes…), the occasional creeper driving around outside resulting in police calls, lots of physical labor along with the fact that most of them work all by themselves makes for an intense working situation..but I know many them who have stayed with it, working incredibly hard and doing an astounding job. My parents, of course, see much more of this in their employees than I do, and so they decided to hold an Office Pride Appreciation Day to thank their employees and friends for the job well done.

They invited everyone to come out, bring their families, eat some great food, and get family photos taken. When my mom hired me to take the pictures, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I met met some of the most amazing people; some of the sweetest families. I was shocked to find that a majority of them had either never had family pictures taken, or had never had them professionally done, so I went into it a little bit nervous, wanting them to have a great experience with professional photos. It seemed to go well!
