You ever just been proud of a friend? That’s how I feel in this moment as I write this post. I am proud of my friend. For NOT quitting. For believing. For going after her dream. As I blog…. I am contemplating on the moment we met, the long journey of our friendship – the […]
This little girl, this little girl. My sweet baby Wisdom. Recently, we accompanied W to Las Vegas for the annual Wedding & Portrait Photographers International conference (WPPI) – I say we accompanied her because she stole the show, but that’s for another post. We stayed in one of the newly remodeled rooms of the MGM […]
Ah this post is such a long time coming. I finally understand what all of those self- employed, stay-at-home mom’s were talking about when they said that managing it all was quite the task! I am learning daily what the absolute juggling act of thriving business owner & rock star mom is and boy it […]

Going through our 2011 sessions and found this sweet little girl! Lyric, one of my favorite kids in the world! Completely full of life, joy and humor she is the light to everyone around her. Singing and acting HANDS DOWN one of the most talented little people I know. I don’t do kid sessions (outside […]
Its Our Anniversary I never would or could imagine that my own selfish plan for life would collide with God’s plan for my life and BOOM, today on five years of marriage we would be clearing out our closets, detailing our car, donating old clothes and furniture for newborn onesies and pacifiers to welcome our […]
I just came back from one of the most AMAZING experiences of my short photography career. Last week, I had the opportunity to spend 3 days with the amazingly talented and gifted Promise Tangeman at the Sitehouse Go Live Event. What is this event I speak of?? Well, Promise, her team and the folks over […]
After a VERY exciting month of anticipating this moment, I could not wait for last Sunday to get here. It could not have come faster if you ask me. All the preparation , all the planning and all the excitment surrounding one of the most important annoucements of our lives our gender reveal party, girl […]
What’s a gender reveal without a story??! I knew that if I ever got pregnant everything about that first baby would be a spectacle, epic, special. I have waited 29 years and 363 days for this moment and its here. FINALLY! We are having a baby. A sweet sweet baby! We are so excited to […]
There is almost nothing better for a photographer than the annual WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) convention that happens in Vegas every February/March. I may be a bit bias considering I’ve only been been twice, but those two times are enough for me to co-sign. WPPI is the most incredible experience. If you ever […]
Note: I just spent the last hour on this post because I wrote the most amazing blog post to one of my favorite albums, (because I totally write to music), and when I went to post the blog…. it was gone. I starred at the computer for the last 20 minutes trying to figure out […]
So we all know I had a 8 pack prior to this pregnancy so I most definitely have a bump!! Ha ha ha just joking, but my belly was definitely a tad bit tinier than it is now. Our VERY first picture!! I will be posting these every two weeks or so to share my […]
What happens when the thing you never thought would happen does? What happens when you unexpectedly get sick? What happens when someone you love falls ill or even worse dies? What happens when a natural disaster hits and destroys everything you've worked so hard to build? What happens when you become ill or paralyzed and are unable to run your business? What happens when you find yourself in a global pandemic and you're unable to work for months at a time? What are you going to do?
When we first started shooting, we couldn't afford many of the opportunities and workshops that were available for newbie photographers to learn and grow, so we really utilized the free communities online and locally to building relationships and to learn the trade. It was those years that shaped who we are as people in this industry and have helped us to value the journey.
