Currently Daydreaming

I have recently had an obsession with bunches of things… flocks, groups, colonies. I notice them everywhere. Sometimes while driving and witnessing a flock of birds in flight I feel as if I should pull over simply to stare. Butterflies, but only when they are all together. Ladybugs and that there is never just one. The shape of the clouds and how many there are. I am always searching for repetitive patterns. For instance, have you noticed how the trees line up perfectly straight in the middle of a forrest?

Even the words used to describe flocks of things intrigue me. Did you know that a group of butterflies is called a kaleidoscope? A bunch of lady bugs is a loveliness? A group of jelly fish is a bloom? A group of trees a stand?

Sweet Summer - Teala Ward | Amarillo Photographer

I think the norm has become to have family photos taken in the fall, but somehow I think the magic of summer has somehow eluded people. Summer’s magic weather is something to be savored.

Motherhood often feels like whirlwind. Some days you are so sure of what you’re doing nothing can stop you, and others leave you feeling like you can’t get it right.

In home Lifestyle Session - Teala Ward Amarillo Family Photographer

I had the absolute pleasure of working with this family for an in home lifestyle session.  Kali owns a beautiful boutique here in Amarillo called Athleisure.  She is wonderfully knowledgeable about all things workout related and was previously a personal trainer. James is a firefighter, but has also created products that support workouts and healthy lifestyle! His company is Atlas Supply Co. and his products are sold in the botique.  I personally can’t wait to try them.  I think these two are brilliant, and asked lots of questions because I have recently started my own health and wellness journey!  I have never loved to work out but recently found a love for combat fitness and I’m hooked!

Their gorgeous girl is not only adorable, but curious, and was extremely interested in what I was doing! She was full of smiles! I am so grateful they allowed me to capture them in their home.  I feel like our homes are where our lives happen.  We can sometimes take for granted how much happens inside those walls.  So much joy and late night dreaming happens in my own, and I know that when my own children look back on their childhood it will be important to see the house they grew up in.  I am so grateful I also get to capture that for others.

Your personal story is so important.  My job as a photographer is to preserve the things you see in feel in still life for generations to come.  I asked Kayli to share a bit of her story because it matters.  Where you come from, how you feel about your people, what you want to show them and reminisce about when they are older.  It all matters. Kayli wrote a little letter about her story.
