Nashville, TN Wedding & Engagement Photographer | Kristi & John

Oh I have been so excited to share this engagement session!! I have known Kristi for the last couple of years and just got the opportunity to meet John at the start of our engagement session.  We had such a great time during their session and so thankful for the weather to finally cooperate! I can’t tell you how many times we had to reschedule due to rain, but at last, we made it happen! Kristi and John just got engaged Labor day weekend and planned their wedding in just 3 months! It was a bit of a whirlwind, but it was so fun to hear about the plans on hyper speed! And to witness their love story in person, so amazing! I cannot wait to share their wedding day with you next week! For now, take a look at my favorites from their engagement session! I love the love and laughter captured!

Texture Tuesday | 2013 in Review

What a year 2013 was! It was a very fun and exciting year for RWP, and I am truly thankful for each and everyone one of my clients in 2013.  What I love most about my job is getting to glimpse into my clients’ hearts, into their stories, into their love.  I get to freeze it in time.  It is amazing!! Below are my favorite images of 2013. Below are my clients, turned friends.  Below are exquisite brides and handsome grooms, new mamas, growing families through adoption, high school seniors ready for new adventures, babies that I got to watch grow, learn, and change, couples with new and old love, children with eyes full of wonder, couples awaiting their family to being, and joyous families’ that let me capture them as they are, now. I am truly blessed and thankful that so many people let  me into their lives this year, trusted my vision.

Also, I want to give all of y’all the biggest hug ever for loving me and supporting us through our adoption journey to start our family! It has been so encouraging to be traveling this journey and having such a community of love, support and prayer for our little guy! What a year 2013 was, and man oh man! 2014 is going to be amazing! Ready to reach some goals, live more intentionally, and fill this year with lots of love.  Hope you enjoy my favorites for 2013, and I can’t wait to see what is in store to capture in 2014!!

Thank you for supporting Rebecca Walker Photography and here is to an amazing 2014!!

Texture Tuesday | A lot of New Year rambling and a bit of good news!

This day, one year ago, really seems like a life time ago.  Around this time last year, about to start 2013, we had just announced to our families we were adopting and trusting God to show us where in the world our baby was.  Boy did he show us! Just 4 months into our adoption journey and just 4 quick months into the new year, we saw our son’s face for the first time.  I can remember that moment so clearly, can remember those emotions so vividly.  It just amazes me.

We have had lots of ups and downs in 2013.  It wasn’t quite the year that I had hoped for, but in so many ways it was infinitely better. This year was a year to educate ourselves to be better parents, to focus on our marriage, to invest in our friendships, learn to wait on God’s timing, focus on worrying less, growing my business, leaving our first home and moving to our forever home.  So instead of focusing on what all didn’t happen in 2013, I choose to concentrate on the good.

The best of the year ended with learning that we will get to meet our SON just after the new year!!!! This day… this day that part of me never thought would actually happen.  This day that we have been preparing and learning and growing how to parent this amazing little 18 month old baby.  It is actually about to happen!! In just a few weeks, we will be meeting our son for the first time.  I truly cannot believe it!!! Yesterday was a complete blur as we shared with our family and friends and the FaceBook world the news that we had been holding our breath to hear. We will be leaving and spending a week in Seoul, South Korea.  Getting to visit with our Davis, meet the amazing woman that has been raising and loving our son, tour this wonderful city to learn a whole new culture! What an incredible adventure that we are about to go on so very soon!

As we move into 2014 (!!!!!), I decided to write down some things that are important to me.  Things that I want to focus on in this new year.  Not resolutions so much…but just things to focus on in the coming year.  So here they are!

embrace being still

worry less

focus on love & joy

enjoy each day

nurture important relationships

push my creative boundaries in photography

continue to exercise/eat healthier

cherish these moments as a new mom

It has been really enlightening to really think about what is important in my life and actually write them down!! Y’all should really do it!

Today was totally meant to blog a year in review for RWP.  I have picked one images from all of my sessions and weddings this year to show, but with the good news about our little guy, it will come another day!! So stay tuned! Happy 2014 and be safe out there tonight!!

Happy new year!

Texture Tuesday | Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!! I just cannot believe how quickly this year passed by, but especially the last month! Where did December go?! It was filled with parties, celebration, family, travels, and a little bit of shopping! Over the years we have had so many fun Christmas memories from traveling to East Tennessee to the beach to Christmas cruises to New York City! So many different and fun times over the years! And while this year is a bit bittersweet without our Davis home, I will try to focus on Christmas next year. Seeing our first Christmas  together, as a family of three, through his eyes.  I know it will be truly magical.

This last weekend my sister and niece made a quick surprise visit up to Tennessee and while they were here, we did a little Christmas reminiscing, so for this Texture Tuesday and to wish y’all a VERY Merry Christmas, take a look at some beauties from Christmas past!

 

Texture Tuesday | 2014 Organizing

Every year about this time I start dreaming of how awesome the next year will be! How organized I will be, what goals I will set for my business and personal life, etc. But this year, there is a whole new aspect to our life that has thrown me for a little loop! We are bring home an 18 month old into our home, and I will become a working mom! Oh my goodness!! I cannot believe it! So many questions are running through my mind, like time management, child care, maternity leave, how to get everything done while having a precious boy at my feet?

I am still not sure how I am going to do it all… well, here is the thing, I won’t be able to do it all.  So coming into 2014 there will be some changes, good changes to RWP (more on that to come!). But for now, I am taking small steps to help me stay on top of things going on.  Every beginning of the year, or every new school year when I was teaching, I was always on the hunt for the best and most amazing planner.  One to help keep me organized, room to write, places to keep a schedule plus mark off “to dos.” In the past, when I was teaching, I have always kept my work and personal calendars kind of separate.  Then once I went full time with photography, I kept everything on my iCal.  This pretty much worked UNTIL this latest update, and I just hate the calendar set up now.  SO the search for the perfect planner started again.  I needed a planner that my business and personal life could work together in one.

I continued to see THIS planner all over my FaceBook and Instagram feed.  I started to read reviews on it.  It really seemed to have everything I needed.  Not only did it have the full month displayed to see but also had full, big pages per day.  I photographed a few of my favorite parts for y’all to see.  Hoping to put it to good use this year! My only real con is the spiral notebook part… all my fellow lefty’s out there understand the dislike and discomfort of trying to write in a spiral notebook… hopefully it can over look it:)Here is to a more productive and organized 2014!

Megan - I only dream about being as organized as you. Here’s to an amazing and incredibly organized 2014 for you and your little family!

Elizabeth Scruggs - ooohhhh, looks like a goodie! Like you, I’m always on the hunt for the “best” planner. I have been using a Planner Pad for years, and love it, but it’s downright ugly. I love the look of this one and the layout looks a bit similar to Planner Pad. Thanks for sharing, and CONGRATS on your new baby coming home!!
