Hey everyone!! Welcome to my page!! So glad to see you here! I figured it’s been awhile since I’ve introduced myself over here! Here’s 10 things you may not know about me.⠀
⠀
1. I’ll be a nurse in 4 months and 29 days but who’s counting right?⠀
⠀
2. I took 13 years of ballet - hence the stance above. It really comes in clutch for detail shots I must say.⠀
⠀
3. I think mushrooms should be banned and not consumed #mushroomfree⠀
⠀
4. My birthday is tomorrow! ⠀
⠀
5. I’m weirdly obsessed with budgeting (even though I never stick to it) and planning. If it’s not in my planner it’s not on my radar.⠀
⠀
6. I wear lavender essential oil everyday. #nursingschoollife⠀
⠀
7. I got my first camera when I was around 11. A little pink digital point shoot, the screen was probably the size of a memory card but I loved it and took it everywhere. It sparked my love of photography and I haven’t looked back since.⠀
⠀
8. I believe that every adventure can be had in Chaco’s.⠀
⠀
9. Medical missions was a huge reason I wanted to become a nurse.  I hope and pray that I can go impact the lives of others and show them Jesus. ⠀
⠀
10. I have 3 sisters, a tortoise, and currently 8 cats... don’t ask!⠀
⠀
Well that’s all for now!! ⠀
⠀
I never realized how hard it is to come up with 10 things about myself. ⠀
⠀
Tell me 1 random thing about you!!

Sneak peek of last nights engagement session!! These two were such troopers! It was 39 degrees with high winds, making it feel like it was 29 degrees!! Talk about freezing! 
Thank you to @romeex0 and @therajivgandhi for sticking through it!! ⠀
Can’t wait to show you more!!

Oh the things I’ll do for a good picture!! Sorry I’ve been a little MIA over here, life has been kicking me in the booty. 
November is officially my busiest month so far and I’m not excited about it!! I love being busy and always having something to do but man, I’m exhausted!! Maybe it’s the weather, daylight savings, or I’m just mentally on Christmas break. 
When I’m drowning in life I try to remind myself to be thankful for the little things. 
Today, I’m thankful for a car. Yes it’s old and the engine light keeps coming on and no one knows why. My car may explode I don’t know. However, I’m thankful for a car that has 4 wheels, windshield wipers that work, and a radio to jam out to christmas music. Yes, I’m one of those people, stop judging.  What is one thing you’re thankful for today? Let’s cheer each other up!!

One day I will stop posting engagement pictures, however, today is not that day!! Still in awe and shock to be engaged!

I’m also very excited that I’ve hooked my Fiancé on coffee! Before we were dating he did not like coffee at all, then slowly he would drink it here and there. As time went on it became more of an occurrence and now one of our favorite dates is checking out the local shops! 
If you enjoy coffee, let me what your favorite shop is! (It can be Dunkin’ or Starbucks) 
Currently mine is @the_wise_bean and Muggles Mug

Just another friendly reminder that it’s not too late to book those senior and family sessions before it gets too cold!! The leaves are turning a perfect hue for some Christmas and graduation pictures (just sayin!)

What a whirlwind of a break from school! Wow! It was a much needed break from school! Officially starting the last first day of my specialties rotation of nursing school! I’m in my OB rotation learning all about the babies!  And now that my life has a bit of structure again just wanted to let you all know that I’m now booking weddings for 2019 if you are in need of a photographer just shoot me a message or email! I’d love to hear from you!! Until then I’ll be studying about prostaglandin E hormone

Sneak peek of tonight’s session!! Kassidy is a coworker of mine who wanted to get some pictures of her and her boyfriend, Tyler. They are such an adorable couple and I’m so glad we were able to catch some of that golden hour glow!! Y’all are the cutest @kassidyreinhard

Sharing more details from the wedding 2 weeks ago!! Cannot believe it’s almost been two weeks since this magical day, I swear time flies so much faster on break which is totally unfair!! Not ready for school to start back up but ready for the structure again, I have to force myself to be productive and wake up at a decent hour to accomplish my to-do list! 
What are some weekend plans you guys have?! I’ll be folding laundry that’s been sitting in my room for 2 weeks (hehe oops), shooting a couple’s portrait session, and spending Sunday with my bf in Jim Thorpe!

This dress picture is giving me all the feels!! Spent the morning working on my website and blog post and felt like I accomplished nothing! Anyone else struggle with technology?? I think I did more harm than good, so frustrated I just had to stop which is so hard for me to do, I just want to fix it and be done. 
Anyone else with me? 
Also, if you happen to be a showit/Wordpress wizard please send help!! It’s way over my head 😂
