My Favorite Way to Print Our Daily Memories

I’ve said it many a time before but you guys know how much importance I place on photos and not just taking them but printing them. You’ve seen our walls where we have photos displayed and you’ve probably seen in the past that I always make a photo album of Ryan and my’s annual photo…

Finding “Normal”

Now that the rush of busy season is mostly behind us, I feel like we’re finally getting back into a more “normal” routine, which is always good and bad. It’s great for us as family, for balance in my home, work, and personal life. It’s good for me to recharge and find that balance again….

Holiday Heartache for the Childless

I know my blogging regularity has slipped as of late and I promise there are a couple of good reasons for it. I also feel bad that I’ve not had time to really just sit and write for you guys lately either. So today I wanted to talk about a topic that I know is…

Thanksgiving 2017

Well it’s been over a week, but I finally had a minute to sit down and share a little peek into our Thanksgiving festivities this year. This was Marlee’s first Thanksgiving, which meant we made some changes to our usual crazy busy day. For the past 13 years that Ryan and I have been together,…

Halloween 2017

Well I meant to get this post written for yesterday but life happened and it didn’t go up. So it’s coming to you a day late instead. Growing up, Halloween was always fun even if I wasn’t always incredibly creative or over the top with my costumes. I think I used the same doctors coat…

6 Years After the Fire

So yesterday, October 10th, officially marked six years since the day of our house fire. There are some days it doesn’t feel like that long ago – especially when people are burning things other than leaves and firewood… and even then I can get a little shaky. And of course there are aspects of that…

There Is No “Just” in Adoption

I’ve shared many a post about what not to say to someone struggling with infertility and shared some of the hurtful things people have said to us. One of the hardest things to be asked was “Why don’t you just adopt?” Yes – I am now the mother of a beautiful little girl thanks to…

Playtime with Marlee

As a photographer – I’m sure a lot of people think that I’m just constantly taking pictures of this little lady. But the truth is – I rarely pull out my big camera on a daily basis. I grab it for special occasions and her monthly pictures and that’s pretty much it. I typically end…

Here Comes Busy Season!

  Well tomorrow marks my last free weekend until mid to late November. I’m super grateful for all the work coming up to help pay for our extra Marlee expenses, but I’ll be real – I’m a little nervous too! October is always the busiest month of the year for photographers. Everyone seems to want…

Life: Loving My Imperfect Body

The hubby and I have been having some really candid body image conversations lately. It’s a topic that’s important to me as a woman, as someone who struggled (and sometimes still does) with this a lot, and as a mother of a daughter. Obviously life with a baby means that my schedule has dramatically shifted…
