You know all those dreams you have stuck in your head? They don’t have to stay there. You should go out + make them happen. Having a vision + a goal is what got me to this point in my life + had they just stayed in my head I wouldn’t be living my best life right now ✨ #makeithappen
Be soft and promise me you‘ll never let the world make you hard. Promise me you‘ll never doubt the beauty in this world even though some might make you question it. ✨ have a great tuesday lovelies 💗🙋🏽♀️ #arsvivendi_moments
Ask any of our friends if we know how to relax and 99% of them will say no. Also that same 99% will say we are suckers for pain, because we always have something new on the go.
Well I can 100% confirm we have something on the go, yet again! A new and extremely exciting project, which I cannot wait to share with you. But for now we are under wraps as we start planning and creating.
I’ve been itching to photograph another engagement session in front of some cool urban murals! Richmond Riverwalk, Blagden Alley in DC, worldwide. 📸😘 Brownie points if you dance and jump for me (like Sarah & Elliott)! DM me if you are interested and want to make it happen! #engagementsbylaurentina#rvaweddingphotographer#muralphotoshoot
Sony in Haiti for @lifeteen -
“It was my senior year when I realized that the Lord desired more of me, that he wanted me to achieve something big that would not only lift up my family, but would also lift up my neighborhood and the town which I was from too.”
Oh my it is such an honor to share Sony and his story with you. He is the first person EVER to graduate university in his community. Ever. @lt_haiti had the honor of supporting him through the process of earning a bachelors degree in Business Management. Sony’s biggest dream is to be the president of Haiti and to make life better for the people. His laugh is infectious, his hard work and presence is inspiring. If you have the time to read all of his story, I highly recommend taking a couple minutes to be inspired by the guy who would go home and read the Bible to his mother who wasn’t able to, by the guy who’s disabled brother passed away during his third year of university, and yet still kept going to & excelling in school.
It was during my senior year here that I began to meet the missionaries at the base, Father Louis and Paul being among the first that I met. It was also my senior year when I realized that the Lord desired more of me, that he wanted me to achieve something big that would not only lift up my family, but would also lift up my neighborhood and the town which I was from too.I realized that it would take a lot of sacrifice, a lot of suffering and that it would be really hard. I would have to work so hard in order to achieve this, in hopes that in the future, I could help my family and do something impactful. In talking to the missionaries and talking to Father Louis, I shared with them how I still felt a tugging on my heart to the priesthood. Father Louis took me under his wing and plugged me in with different missionaries, and that is where relationship with the missionaries really began to develop. They showed me how to go deeper, they included me in different spiritual activities that they were doing, they would take me on different trips around town and around the diocese, and we just really began to develop a solid relationship with each other. (Continued in the comments.)
This cold weather is making me wish I was sitting on a beach with this babe, even though I HATE the beach! But she is worth it and deserves it! I cant wait for the many adventures we get to go on together this year! #MarriedUp#AlwaysOnTheRoad
