Life, Lately. // Anniversary Portraits

On October 26th 2013 I married the love of my life and became Mrs. Nicholas Wiley :) We ditched our big fancy wedding for a small wedding at a park surrounded by family & friends, colorful leaves and mini cupcakes...and wine, duh. There's a long list of things I would have done differently on our wedding day, I was DIY bride working full-time, running a business and going to school full-time. I was very stressed and almost nothing went as planned but I went to sleep that night as a wife, his wife. We woke up the next day and took a short little honeymoon trip to the Poconos and lived happily ever after...and by that I mean we are two years in! I promised myself that year two was going to be the year we finally get portraits of us two on the walls! We didn't set time aside on our wedding day for photos so we literally have 2-3 of just us and we never did an engagement session so our only portraits to date are maternity and family sessions. Four months after our wedding we were surprised by the news of a baby on the way!!! I was nine months pregnant on our one year wedding anniversarsy so you can imagine I had no desire to take anniversary photos or do anything that did not involve chinese food on the couch. It was long over due to get in front of the camera with this amazing man of mine. I feel so grateful and blessed to share my life with my him. He is a good man with a kind heart, he is the best daddy to our girl and dogs, he would do anything for me, he is patient, he is funny and he lets me be the independent woman I was when we met, he completes me. There isn't a day I don't feel like the most loved person in the world. These incredible photos were taken by the amazing Rosie Omar!

I am nowhere near a time in our lives to give advice on marriage but I will share 3 small things that we have learned in these 2 years of marriage...

#1. Whether it's a full, queen or king sized bed...there is never enough space for to sleep like a starfish.

#2. The thermostat setting is a never ending silent war.

#3. He's my lobster.
