A Day in the Life

February 26, 2016 /

I have seen a Day in the Life posts around the internet and thought it would be a fun project.  Now that I’m headed back to the office next week, we won’t be around for trash day for 3 months so what better day to document than trash day! Today […]


I’m baaaaaack!

February 17, 2016 /

Back in July when I had Callie, my husband and I made the decision that I would be concentrating on photography full time. It has been such an awesome experience and spending more time with my children has been truly priceless.  I will never regret the time I have spent with […]


2014: The Year of Family

January 3, 2014 /

A lot of bloggers choose a word that they want to describe their year before it even happens.  Something to strive for in the year to come, if you will.  I’ve been noticing that my focus is often being pulled by outside forces: my phone, social media, etc. So this […]


Going Back

July 21, 2013 /

I’m typing this with a heavy heart tonight.  I have to keep reminding myself not to be so dramatic, but tomorrow is the day that has been a blinking red date since April 18th.  I have to go back to work full time tomorrow.  Tears keep coming to my eyes […]
