The Bestest Wife Ever!!!!!!

Here is an unprecedented post by Trevor aka the Hubby. Everyone better enjoy it while they can because it is uncertain if it will ever happen again. I want to take a minute of every ones time and express my gratitude for my wife. She is the most caring, loving, creative and brilliant individual I know. I thank the Lord every day that I get to share my life with her. She has so many talents. In fact I doubt that she has any idea how much I depend on her.

Lately it seems that she has been a little hard on herself. We had a conversation tonight that made her feel like she is not good at many things and all of the things that she had done in her life had been, "half Ass". Sorry about that, but it is a quote so it is OK, Right? She feels that maybe her photography skills are not that great. I know that I am very biased but I LOVE her photos!

So I guess that this is where I need your help. Please let my wife know if you like the pictures that she has posted over the years. I know that it's usually the photos that bring me back to her blog each day. I enjoy looking through them and recognizing the creativity and the way that she can capture our kids personalities. She is feeling down and I know that your comments would help to bring her back to reality where we all love her pictures.

By the way as a side note don't ever go to a precinct caucus because you get nominated and then elected to do things you know that you don't have time to do. Like the state delegate for prescient 40 something errother!!!!!!

Well, you have a very sweet hubby who loves you dearly. That's adorable.

And I haven't seen all of you work for the past 2 years, but I do think you are VERY talented. I would love to have a 1/4 of the skills you possess in photography. Speaking of which, when do you want to get together to take some photos of our kiddos?.. at least the girls.

I am jealous on 2 accounts... 1- Your pictures ARE amazing! I wish I had your talent! 2- Your hubby is so sweet. I wish mine would declare his appreciation to the world like that. :o)

Are you kidding me??? Your photos are some of the best I have EVER seen. I love them! You definitely have an amazing talent. You are also the cutest, nicest neighbor ever. Would a little Guitar Hero cheer you up?

We all love your photos! You have a very keen eye and a great talent for photography. Keep the good work coming!

You know I think you're great. You need to stop letting people drag you down. Go back and look at the photos from that La Caille wedding - you did an awesome job.

You know we all LOVE you, why else would I brag about the beautiful pictures on my mantel?

TravelMama said...

I agree with your Hubby, you are way too hard on yourself (of course, who isn't?). You're such a kind person and I'd love to get together sometime soon.

PS...you really do capture your kids' personalities in your photos, which I find to be an amazing skill. You make it look easy. Whenever I try, I get the back of my son's head.

Shannon,
You are extremely talented when it comes to photos. I wish I had that kind of ablility! I would never pay anyone to take pictures of my kids ever again!! You also are a wonderful friend. I think of all the people we have known for a long time that you are still in touch with! You amaze me!

I hate those feelings. Hate, hate, hate them. It's something I struggle with daily. Literally, daily. I will love something that I've shot, until I start comparing my work to other photogs. Or, I'll be really happy with a session, but then only get 1 or 2 comments & figure maybe it's not that great after all. Ug. I wish I had magic words to make us both feel more happy & confident in our work. Just know that you DO have talent. You do. You should never doubt that. I posted something very similar in January & I'll never forget something that Renee said. "...remember that it's Satan who is behind the whispers of comparison...Heavenly Father sees us for who we are...not for who we aren't!" You are amazing! Keep your head up!

Shannon, you are very talented. I've always been a bit jealous that you and Holly are great at photography.
Your blog always uplifts me-keep up the good work!

I want to say thank you again for letting me use your camera the other day. I know I have tons more to learn but I am excited and looking forward to it. I really mean this. I would die if I could take pictures like you and do every thing else you do. You mean the world to me and I love you so much. You really know how to have fun.
