I've been keeping journals since I was in the 3rd grade and I'm so glad to share some of my most intimate life moments with you here!  Here, you'll find inspirational stories of clients, my journey as a wife and first-time mother and other adventures I have that makes my world go 'round. So please, sit back, grab some coffee ( or my personal favorite, a good ol' fashioned Arnold Palmer!) and enjoy exploring my latest work! Thanks for stopping by and happy reading!

My Journey

November 27, 2014


Is it just me or has this year FLOWN by?!? I seriously feel like it was JUST yesterday we were ringing in the new year!!

Nevertheless, I’m SOOOOOOO ready to eat way too much! Don’t let this small frame fool you…Ya girl can eat!

All yumminess aside, I love this time of year. It allows me time to slow down, take a breath and just reflect on how much I’ve grown throughout the year. From Ethan to my family to my friends to my clients, there are SOOOOOOOOOO many beautiful things to be thankful for. To be honest, I wish I vocalized what I’m thankful for more often. Sure those I love know I love them, but it’s nice to hear. Life is WAY to short to not say how much you appreciate someone. The time we spend on earth is going by quickly and I for one, never want to take the people I love the most for granted. Just like this year has flown by, in the blink of an eye, someone I love can be gone and I just want everyone to know just how precious they are to me. My family means so much to me and if I don’t say it enough, I want to say it right here, right now:

Guys: I LOVE YOU. We are nowhere near perfect, but I wouldn’t trade you all for the world. I love you all with every fiber of my being.

God has moved TREMENDOUSLY in my life this year and though there are times that I’m no deserving of His grace, mercy and blessings, I am incredibly thankful that He continues to keep me. sachelsamonephotography-sachel-samone-photography-sachel-samone-andersons-brides-alaska-photographer-teamHarris-ethan-george-harris-wedding-wednesdays

Thank you Lord for everything You have done, are doing and will do in my life. Completely letting go and surrendering to You has been the best decision I’ve ever made. Thank you for watching over my family and keeping them safe from all hurt and danger. Watch over those who may feel like they are by themselves during this holiday season. Help them to remember they are never alone and are forever loved by You.

From my family to yours, I pray you all have an amazingly Happy Thanksgiving!! Eat way too much, watch football and succumb to the -itis. But most importantly, take a moment to thank God for not only blessing you, but the ones you know and love. 🙂
