    I’ve got some exciting news!

    One of the hardest things I find myself dealing with in regard to my blog is consistency. I’ve been trying to juggle too many topics on this blog and there’s just no way I can keep up with it all. So, I’ve decided to narrow my focus to just one thing – photography. Photography is my passion and I am going to devote all of my creative energy toward building a client base, creating beautiful images, and sharing the knowledge I pick up along the way.

  • Photography: Carter

    I met Mary back in August when I did her maternity photos. Mary and husband Erik are the sweetest, most adorable couple, and I feel truly honored that she asked me to do Carter’s newborn pictures. Carter is such a sweet little guy and he handled poses and outfit changes like a champ! Mary asked if we could include Herc, their beautiful doggy, in the pictures and it made for one of the sweetest pictures ever. Keep reading to see some cuteness overload!

  • Back to Basics: Starting Fresh

    Blogging is hard work. Trying to build up a successful blog is almost like having a second job and if you’re not careful it will start to consume you. That’s the reason I decided to step away for a minute (almost a month and a half) and collect myself. Blogging started to take over everything and it wasn’t fun anymore. I got so caught up in stats, social media followers, sharing to social media and then freaking out when I couldn’t think of anything worthy enough to share here on my blog.
