💃🏼If y’all haven’t seen it yet, I have an official website! What?! It took me a little longer than I planned to get it up and rolling, (#babyprepping#movinghomes#life ) but it is live and I’d like you all to check it out and tell me what you think! Link in bio 👆🏼
So I don’t have a 8 month bump in this photo (like I do in real time) but I couldn’t help but share another photo of this cute pup (who will soon learn that he is no longer going to be the “baby” of the house 😂) and say hey!!
Here are a few things you might not know about me:
I own a hedgehog and her name is Hettie! She’s pretty stinking adorable.
I’m a sucker for good deals, saving money on things that aren’t as important to me, so I can spend it on things and goals that ARE important to me. Like photography gear, home decor for our new house, all the DIY things I can get my hands on and never the least...sushi!
I think chocolate should be it’s own food group. Can we vote this in people?!
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade, and then throw the rinds at the person next to you. Because life is too short not to have fun 😋
A couple of the sweetest Canadians right here y’all! Catherine & Mark were visiting from Canada and wanted to have some professional photos taken of them while they we in town. They were so sweet you’d of thought I was the one visiting their hometown!
I enjoyed being a part of this beautiful southern belle inspired styled shoot recently and had to take a minute to share this sweet and timeless place setting.
I think I need golden silverware now. Yep.

Happy Friday everyone! Let the weekend begin! Tell me what you are up to this weekend.
I’m going to be trying a banana ice cream recipe to try to curb some cravings without feeling too guilty. Because believe me when I say, not all my cravings end that healthily.
2018 is, and will continue to be, a year of growth (and I'm not just talking about the growing baby I get to carry 😉).
Excited to share my new logo with y'all! Thank you so much @ashleyrosemedia for putting this together for me!
For as long as I can remember I have dreamt of being a mother. I can’t believe this dream is coming true with my favorite person, whom I get to call my husband.
Estimated to arrive in September 2018!
Something I never thought would be that big of a deal is all the different baby items/options there are out there!! I’ve started making a list of must-haves. I’d love to hear your advice mommas! What do I need to add for survival?! 😉
The “nothing” moments that we forget. The sweet moments in-between diaper changes, and “it’s mine” fights.
Between the long nights and early mornings.
The “I’m not feeling so well” days to the doctors office.
It’s moments like these that we are reminded of the sweet and short time they are so little. To hold them closely and give so many butterfly kisses. In return for sticky fingers in your hair. But that’s the beauty of motherhood.
I heard the rustling of the leaves as I stepped onto the paved walkway. Surrounded by the warming sun, I stretched my legs.
As I opened my running playlist and popped in my earbuds I started to jog....(cue the alarm clock)...so maybe I didn’t get to take a 5am jog this morning in this beautiful place...but I can dream right?
I hope you are having a wonderful day today! Now, to make those dreams come true!
The challenge of bringing out those sweet little smiles on your little one’s face is something I gladly take on. In this day and time sometimes it can be a struggle to get genuine smiles from kiddos when we live in a world that takes the camera phone out for every little moment.
But I’m happy to say that all those 9+ years of babysitting didn’t completely go to waste in terms of photography.
That being said, I love letting my clients have fun with their kids and make it more of a fun outing than just a “photography session” with their kids! It’s all about capturing the sweet and adorable love of your family!
2017, you were good to us. A few fun and random things we got to experience this year:
🎉We celebrated our first wedding anniversary.
🎉Took two beautiful and relaxing vacations where we dug our toes into the sand.
🎉 Took walks by the water in the moonlight.
🎉I caught my first sting ray and blow fishes.
🎉Max turned 2 years old.
🎉I managed to successfully burn only half of the bread we baked.
We love celebrating the little things. We’ve been so blessed this year and I can’t wait to see what 2018 brings!
This is how I feel going into the weekend. Who is excited for the New Year?!
I love New Year’s Day because it feels refreshing to look back and decide what you want to improve on, spend more time doing this year (or spend less time doing) and set goals!
Today I noticed something. Christmas has a way of making people happy and kind. While grocery shopping today I had multiple strangers smile and wish me a merry Christmas, we would chat and joke more than usual. It was quite refreshing. I think we should treat every day like Christmas in that way.
Second shooting with @brittanybrucephotography
This last week I was so honored to be a part of a beautiful styled shoot out on by @styledshootsacrossamerica. These ladies and all the vendors who got together to make this happen were so awesome I feel like I made friends along the way (which is my favorite!!)
