The lifestyle side of newborn photography is very near and dear to my heart, simply stated. I really enjoy the posed sleepy baby pictures, but I love how much there is to document when you choose to focus on the photojournalistic side. It's for that reason that I got really excited when Lauren and Jeff told me that they really wanted me to capture life as it is ri[...]

For those of you who don't know, my husband Robert and I just recently moved out of our first home and into our second. Exciting! (Right?) In case you missed my Instagram post on moving day, please let me be completely honest in telling you that, exciting as it was, it was also hard. Allow me to explain. First of all, I actually had no idea that Robert and I ha[...]

It was a year of serving and loving couples and families, of growing in our gifts, of communication, of dreaming. It was a year of challenges, changes, and excitement. 3 times we had to find emergency replacements for 2nd shooters due to sudden ill[...]
