My Secret is Out | Big News

Ever since I got my first DSLR I had always dreamt about how cool it 
would be to shoot a wedding, but not just a wedding...a destination wedding. 
Well folks, through countless hours of editing, and growing my business, I can 
proudly say it’s all payed off. My dream of flying to shoot a wedding became surreal. 
As of tomorrow, I’m leaving my little town in Washington state, and headed on a plane across
 the United States to shoot a wedding in the southern state of Georgia. 
This will be my first time actually shooting a wedding completely by myself with no
 second shooter. So prayers would be much appreciated!;)
 All packed and ready to go! Kinda...
One thing I have realized through this whole experience, is that I’m the WORST planner...EVER.
I leave early tomorrow for California first, and then this Thursday I leave from Cali to Georgia. 
My point is this...I haven’t even finished packing yet. Yeah I know, I know...
One thing I can promise is that I’ll be sure to take lots of pictures, and tell you of all my crazy adventures when I get back, but until then...keep shooting.:)

(P-s, if you would like to keep track of me, and my adventure be sure to follow me on Instagram.... thedakotanicole

The Beginning of Fall | Insta Photos

Fall - Such a lovely word.
A time for cloudy days, warm lattes, and of course the best thing ever invented...
Fall will always have a particular spot in my heart.
There’s just something about this rather cozy season that makes my heart happy.
I can’t wait to start wearing cute boots, and overly sized sweaters.
Ahh...so stoked!
Also, it seems to me that great things happen around fall.
I have a BIG secret that I will let slip out of my lips...or my fingers on my next post.
More about that later...;)
What’s your favorite season?

Sibling Love

The light slowly started to creep down and change to gold. 
As you can only imagine, I quickly grabbed my camera and I captured the last of the fading sun.
My little sister Kaitlin, aka Katybug was outside soaking up some of the sunshine when I begged her to let me snap a few photos of her.
 After all, what are siblings for? ;) Ok, I joke...kinda.

Can you say model material? I think so.

Naturally, my other little sister Peyton joined in on all the fun.

Such a cutie! And those eyes? my goodness...
