Happy Birthday, Abby!

My first born, Abigail, just turned five years old and I am in total shock. She is such a great big sister and totally born to be a first child. She is a leader and bossy, yet sensitive and so dang smart! I love her so much and can barely comprehend how she has grown so much in five years. Happy Birthday (one day late) Abby!  ...

Put up or shut up!

I have NEVER had professional family portraits done.My husband would say, “Oh you can do them right?” WRONG! I always told him that it would be too hard and that we should have someone do them…BUT, after I lost some weight.Three babies later and I am still waiting to lose weight. I always tell my clients to document the everyday and not put off photos because of this or that....

Independence Day 2016

fourth of july sparkler photo

Last year I took the kids out to their Aunt Doe’s house to experience fireworks for the first time and this year we did it again! I think it’s gonna become a new tradition! In this first picture you will see 4 kiddos and the rest you will only see 3 of them. That’s because Presley was not a fan of the loud noises! Even her big sister, Anistyn, doesn’t like...

Evelyn’s Baptism

It has been almost a whole month since we baptised our 3rd child. I never had my ish together enough to actually plan past setting up the date and Godparents. I am the spitting image of the hot mess mom! This time around I wanted to make sure we had just a simple, intimate gathering after for all the family and friends who had joined us at the baptism. You may...

New Addition

Evelyn Kate was born February 18, 2016 I wanted to share some photos from when she was just 1 week old.  That yawn murders me with it’s cuteness. I never thought of myself as a mother 10 years ago. Sometimes I still can’t believe I have 3 now, but wouldn’t want it any other way. They all bring me so much joy, love and laughter…..ok headaches too, if I ‘m being...

Summer Fun

We have had quite a full summer this year and it has gone by SUPER fast! I can’t believe my daughter will be starting school in 1 weeks. Where has the time gone? Moms out there I know you feel me! We made so many memories and I wanted to share some here. Making s’mores for the first time, watching fireworks, zoo trips, lots of cousin time, and pool parties...

Spring Forward

WARNING! *KID OVERLOAD* After my busy season ended last year I took a much needed hiatus. In doing so I spent time decompressing from hectic holiday schedules and just relaxing. We don’t do too much on the weekends because of our busy weekdays so it has been very mellow in the past couple of months. I always feel like I don’t take enough pictures of my kids and part of that...

4 Years

My Love I can’t believe how fast time flies. It has been 4 years since we became man and wife. The journey has been so much fun. We had such nice, quiet, romantic dinner & R-rated movie nights followed by snuggling and playing video games too late into the night. We traded those night in for messy dinners at home, the same 3 G-rated movies over and over, sleepless nights and 8 o’clock...

A Camera Guide for the Momtographer

My mom has been searching to upgrade from her camera phone to an actual camera, but to more than just her point and shoot. I had given her my camera to use for Peter’s baptism to see what she thought about going to such “heavy machinery”. It made me think of all the other mom’s out there that want to take better quality photos of their little ones just on...

Wife 2.0

I was having a ruff day. Bad enough for it to be ruff instead of rough. I had an argument last night with my husband. It was one of the worst ones we have had. He said something, then I said something back with edge in my voice he said something with more edge and I replied with even more edge and a mean glare. Then silence. The kind were...
