Planning a wedding is a flurry of excitement (as it should be!), but very little is said about the after part. Planning a wedding isn’t as much planning for one day as it’s planning for a lifetime with your best friend! There is a huge difference in booking weddings and booking the right kind of […]

I have an amazing assistant, Lara, who is without a doubt my right hand lady.  She rocks at life in general.  As she grows in her craft and in this company, her place here has understandably gone from “intern” to “assistant”, which means the opportunity for intern here has opened!   I love being able […]

Yay for a new year! Welcome to 2017 you guys. I’m so excited to start this year off with goals, dreams, and the awesome feeling of being able to say that I checked things off my list last year, even when I thought I didn’t.   For last year’s “goal” post (see that post here!), […]

When I turned 30 last year, I couldn’t understand what the big deal was? I had a rough time turning 25 (for reasons totally unbeknownst to me…I was just weirdly down about my 25th birthday) so every year since, I’ve turned 24 🙂 When my 30th birthday rolled around, however, I had a surge of […]

More and more these days I’ve found people saying that Valentine’s Day isn’t something they celebrate.  While I agree that this man is my Valentine every day, not just on February 14th, I love having another reason to tell him how much I love him (as if I needed another reason 🙂 )   When […]

Two words: snow day.  For every work-at-home momma these two little words can be enough to cause even the most level-headed of us to wonder if we’ll make it through the day.  Small children being snowed in means boredom, melt downs, and lots of whining. Luckily, I have faces like this cute one to remind […]

Our littlest man turned one over the weekend and my momma heart was full of a mixture of love and sadness knowing this is the last first birthday I’ll celebrate with my babies!  I was a little nostalgic over his birth, so browsing through his birth photos was a must (you can see that blog post […]

My daughter turned 10 on January 2nd, and it was an emotional day for me.  Double digits. She’s no longer the little girl that I carried around on my hip or fell asleep in my lap, but she still lets me wipe her tears and she still finds me cool enough to talk to.  I’m […]

People often ask me why I wanted to be a photographer, and more importantly, why did I choose weddings? While it’s true that I love being a photographer in general, it’s first and foremost an art form, and I’m a firm believer that artists create what makes their come alive.  Just as writers should write […]

Happy New Year’s Eve! I can’t believe 2016 snuck up on us so fast.  It’s so cliche when people say, “Where did the time go?” but it’s said for a reason. Last year came and went in a blink of an eye, and I’m left wondering what did I accomplish? The new year always poses […]
