WOW, you guys!!! Today marks the end of our FIFTH year as two full-time photographers at The McCartneys Photography. Sure, there were years "on the side" before that. But, we're counting our days and celebrating our anniversaries based on the number of years we've been relying on our photography to support our morning coffee and to fill Parker's puppy bowl & provide him with more than enough toys :) Starting tomorrow, we will officially be in our sixth year of business as a full-time husband-wife photography team and, if we're being honest, that sort of blows our mind. We eat, live, and breathe moments together in this world of entrepreneurship and marriage and life with one source of income and share a passion so strong for capturing love & moments in the lives of others. And the best part? The moments we're invited to photograph fill us with JOY!! They fuel us up. They light us on fire. They make us stop and feel so grateful, all at the same time.

We can't help but feel especially grateful today. Without YOU, none of this would be possible. Without your support, your love, and your passion for creating a legacy for your family through photos, we wouldn't be able to do what we love every single day. And that is so powerful, it completely warms our hearts!! Here we sit this morning, in our at-home office, enjoying our second cup of coffee, listening to our most recent happy tunes playlist with a cute fluffy puppy curled up behind us, and we're sending you the biggest digital hug on the planet!!! THANK YOU for your love and support over the last five years!

Want to know the funny part? This September we'll be toasting to our 5th wedding anniversary. SO, we've actually been taking pictures together for a living longer than we've been married!! Sometimes you just know and that can definitely be said about the two of us, in both love and in business ;)

We'll be spending today celebrating, writing in our dream books, and cheersing with family at "taco night" this evening!! Here's to five more years!  :D

xoxo, Kelsy & Butch
