You may notice that many of Olivia's mini photoshoots are outside - and we've found this new fun spot where the sun … Continue reading everything tulle
We all want to know why. How? Who? We seek out details and information in a desperate attempt to make sense of the unfathomable. Our Western culture finds immense comfort in answers/information; we are driven by problem/solution, symptom/diagnosis and the differentiation of self versus others. BUT.

Right after Olivia's first birthday, we got her a puppy. Kevin and I had been dreaming about this puppy for 2+ years. We wanted a brindle English Mastiff, the junk yard-ier, the better.

I have the most adorable tiny subjects to photograph on my mom-tographer journey, but they get a certain look of annoyance whenever I bust out the camera these days... So, when the opportunity presents to stretch my skillset and photograph a gorgeous friend and her baby bump - I take it! This is my dear … Continue reading …and then golden friends.
We've all been there. Drooling over the dream-worthy Instagram feeds that are perfection defined. For me, it's the mom-tographers. Every shot of their adorable kiddos is captured in such a way that you feel the fun, creative, colorful moment in their lives. To say I'm jelly is quite the understatement... And it's not their perfect … Continue reading golden children
I've done the direct sales jam. I tried my hand at jewelry sales, basically one million years ago, and I actually had a lot of fun and made money (and had a stellar jewel collection).
