People used to look at me like I had five heads when I went to Costco with my three kids in CA. Really I wanted to say...”bro-have you seen the sticker decals on the back of mini vans in UT?....this is weak sauce!” I can’t think of a more incredible family on the planet. I aspire to be as graceful, patient and well dressed as these guys! Love them!
I was talking to someone about where I grew up the other day and I can't help but get a little cheesy and start signing a favorite country song...but I'll spare you. I grew up with feeding goats, changing water, picking up rocks before planting season, and watching the sun
There are a few among the general populous, 1%, in fact, that are wired differently from the rest of us. Willingly they submit themselves to a lifestyle immersed in “less,” goodbyes, changes, intense difficulty, and real conflict. There are a few among us that are wired differently… self preservation sits back seat to ideals inspired by God encompassed by a nation of people who sometimes care and sometimes could care less, and regardless this doesn’t deter the nobility of those 1%. There are a few among us wired differently. I thank God for them. I pray our hearts, and our actions, make us a people worth fighting for. Thank you for your service, for your sacrifice, for your purest example of being your, “brothers/sisters keeper.” #thankyouforyourservice
I feel like I’ve been punched square in the mouth… (and kind of I have been….five days at the dentist) but there’s a theme in our lives lately where it feels like there are mountains moving...but not for us, rather on top of us. The funny part is I’ve been more focused on climbing lately and I feel like Anna in the scene in Frozen where she pleads in an out a breath voice to know if she’s almost to the top of the snow covered cliff she’s trying to climb (not even close). I don’t know many things but I do know that there are times for ropes and safety nets, and someone to reach down and grab our hands to pull us to the top. But there are also times when we are allowed to struggle just a little to find a hidden message or strength buried within ourselves that would only be unveiled through difficulty. So here’s to patience and cliffs and cookies and tears and good friends and ropes and struggles and forgiveness and looking for foot-holes of knowledge … all the things that inevitably make us better than we are (emphasis on the cookies). #sladefam

I chase authenticity just as passionately as I chase light.I am fluent in tantrums, a champion of bathroom emergencies and I’ve got Daniel Tiger songs for just about every major life scenario. I promise to never put you in a box and to capture your family in such a way that shows the world your truth. Let’s write your story together.

Keep the main thing the main thing...especially as we approach the most magical/commercialized time of the year. Keep the main thing the main thing. 📷: @msladephoto|@kieradurfee
Let’s take in Mary’s hair right here. It’s gorgeous. Brilliant. It’s photos like this that make me think I should probably wash my hair and do it more......emphasis on the “think,” part. 📷: @abbeykyhl
Today I took the grand risk of taking a nap whilst the two year old watched Finding Dory for the one millionth time....nothing and I mean nothing will wake a mom up faster then the sound of tiny hands rummaging through a no longer hidden box full of crayons... RIP perfectly painted walls. 📷: @biancamadsenphoto
We’re entering a baby boom and we certainly don’t hate it! We love in home lifestyle sessions! Visit the link in our profile to inquire.📷: @msladephoto
One of my favorite quotes reads: “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” I thank God for allowing me to live in a nation where individuals willingly volunteer to sustain an idea that became who we are.. and whose construction was inspired by him. I pray we reverence these people and never grow too spoiled to forget that most of us have never fought one of our most important battles. I’m so proud to be an American. I’m so proud that our history, though littered with shortcomings and errors, is filled with nobility, selflessness, and most of all love- all encompassed about by our veterans. #thankyouforyourservice 📷@msladephoto
Is it normal to feel the baby hunger during this time of year? 😬asking for a friend ....📷: @biancamadsenphoto
Someone is always watching. Be a soulful example of what it means to chase joy, and rely on love. Someone is always watching. 📷: @abbeykyhl
Does anyone else have “wedding regret?” I’m not talking about the actual getting married part...I’m talking about the unfortunate decisions you did or didn’t make. I have a whole list but at the top was my choice in fake flowers from Jo-Anns (roses to top it off)....😬. The beautiful miss Alexis here though-will definitely not have those same regrets. @whitneyhuntphoto nailed this wedding out of the park! Getting married soon? We’d love to chat!
In a world full chaos we must hold on to everything that is good. And most importantly we must actively look for everything that is good.📷: @msladephoto | @merciorg
Anyone else fantasizing about sitting on a beach somewhere? Adult life punched me right in the face this week! 📷: @msladephoto
Of all the languages love speaks, the loudest version isn’t uttered at all 📷: @abbeykyhl @maryluella @overthetopevents.ut
Family pictures remind you how adorable your kids can be....even when all of them are fighting over who’s cup has the most juice in it... 📷: @biancamadsenphoto
We are entering the most magical season of the year. I know it's cliche and there are more than a few people who hate
My face when when the guy signing me up at the gym asked me why I hadn’t renewed my membership in 5 years.... 📷@abbeykyhl | @ashlee_stephens
