When I was pregnant, I read exactly one million birth stories (give or take ;)). I refused to read anything that wasn’t positive, because I didn’t want to fill my brain with the thousands of scenarios that could go wrong. So, for a long time, I hesitated to share my birth story, because it’s not exactly positive…Read More
Everything changed the day I saw those two pink lines.
And yet, for a long time, it felt like nothing had changed at all. Since I still looked more or less the same, and the people I came in contact with every day had no idea that there was a little person growing inside of me, it was easy to forget that it was happening.Read More
Maybe it’s the number of times I’ve moved, but over the years, I’ve found myself becoming more and more minimal. I don’t like having extra, and a clean space with just a couple of high quality, useful, beautiful things makes my heart SO happy. So when I got pregnant, I knew I wanted to keep things minimal and simple…Read More
Now that our little baby girl is here (and has been for over a month!!) and my pregnancy is officially over, I finally feel ready and able to write about the entirety of my third trimester. In a lot of ways, it feels like forever ago that I was pregnant… but in a lot of other ways, it still catches me off guard sometimes to find myself NOT pregnant.Read More
Today my pregnancy app told me that I'm officially in my third trimester, and even though I knew it was coming, it's still a bit of a shock. We just have three more months until we meet our little babe, and with every kick and roll I feel it gets a little more realRead More
It's hard to imagine a world without photographs.
Now days, all we have to do is pull out our phone, click a button, and snap a quick photo of anything we'd like. It's not uncommon for us to take dozens of photographs every single day of the important moments, the mundane, and everything in-between.Read More
I've never really considered myself an impatient person. I'm the type who slowly warms up to new ideas. I take my time and research absolutely everything before I jump in. I weigh the pros and cons, and I try to think past how I'm feeling in the moment to how every decision will effect my life in the long run.Read More
One of my favorite things to help my clients with is wardrobe for the portraits! I don't claim to be a fashion expert by ANY means, but I do know what looks beautiful in an image, and I believe what you wear for your portraits makes a HUGE impact on the final look of your portraits.Read More
When we decide to step out of the traditional work force and become an entrepreneur, we tend to minimize the hard parts and focus on the perks (which is not necessarily a bad thing - I'm all for optimism!).Read More
Last week, we (finally) shared online that we're expecting our first child this fall, and I've been completely overwhelmed by all of the love and support you guys have shown us! We're SO excited for this next adventure in our lives, and since it seems like you are excited too, I thought I'd take a minute to catch you up to speed and share a little bit more with you!Read More
I don't know what Spring has been like where you live, but it feels like around here we jumped straight from winter to summer. There were a few mild days, but it was mostly cold cold cold and then immediately 85 degrees. We didn't get many of the intense thunder storms that make me feel like summer is coming, and I only remember one tornado warning over the past few months, which is crazy for this time of year where we live.Read More
Tucked away in a cool, dark room at the front of the towering historic home, Taylor checked her makeup moments before the ceremony was to begin. She smiled, took a deep breath, and told herself that she wasn't going to cry…Read More
