My weekends are typically very busy since my husband and I shoot looks for the upcoming weeks in advance which means outfit changes in the car, diving from one location to the next, etc.—it’s stressful to say the least but this weekend was an exception. We managed to get lunch at Five Guys in between shoots (my boys LOVE this place!) and we were able to meet up with another family who I have connected on Instagram with.
Eat, smile & be happy
The snow is officially gone and we had almost 60 degrees over the weekend which is warm if you’re from the Midwest. LOL. I felt good. I was fully prepared and had all of looks organized that I needed to photograph over the weekend. Did you know that I create moodboards for every shoot?! It’s like an inspiration board for locations, looks, color story, and so forth. I just like to be prepared so our shoots go smoothly since it’s a family affair in my household. My son’s are always with us. So, you can probably understand why I’m so organized—I simply need my shooting to go fast. 10 minutes, tops. No exception.
These pictures were taken during our lunch break. My boys LOVE Five Guys. And so do I. We ate, laughed and afterwards we headed to out next location for one more shoot. Once we are done, though it’s family time 100%. No cell phones, no work. Just quality time as a family. And speaking of family time. On Sunday we met up with Christina Karin and her beautiful family. We met on Instagram and I always felt a connection with her. She’s as beautiful as her feed on Instagram (@ChristinaKarin), a true gem, honestly.

Love your classic denim look! Need to try Five Guys sometime.
I always love to read your blog..you’re an inspiration..
Have a good start in a week…
I love FIVE guys. We have it here in the UK now and I’ve only been there once but I need to go back. My brother lives in the US so I was obsessed with the drinks machine and all the fancy flavours and had to send him a pic haha.
It’s a family business for me too! My hubby always takes my pictures and when I went back to Lebanon my mom and dad were my photographers!

Ahh busy weekends shooting content. I know the feeling all too well! It’s so great to have a husband who is a good team mate too!
Sometimes, the best shoots take place when they’re not overly planned. This one is SO cute!! I love your sunglasses.
Ahh summer content is so much easer to capture too 🙂
Hope you’re having a great week!
What a cute shot! I hear ya about the stresses of changing in the car and scoping out good locations to shoot at…. but you have to stop and smell the roses (or in this situation, burgers! ) Looks like it was a fun break! 🙂
