I’ve never shared his full birth story like I had planned because it remains deeply personal and very much an experience that monumentally changed my life. But after giving birth to Everett, our second son and newest family addition, […]

Lachlan’s Toddler Room and Our In Home Maternity Session

It’s funny how a second pregnancy can feel so different from a first. Before finding out we were expecting this second baby I heard a lot from friends and even strangers about how different a second pregnancy and baby can be. And I didn’t really understand how vast the differences were until I went through […]

I’m not sure when exactly it hit me but it was during one of my recent private workshops where I thought to myself, ‘I’d really love the chance to have the sort of experience I hope my students receive from me.’ Like my students, I would greatly enjoy the opportunity to bring together beautiful design […]

Favorite Finds, Volume 1

I’ve get many private messages on Instagram asking for sources on random things I share in my day to day. But admittedly it’s really hard to personally answer everyone let alone give back up commentary on WHY I use and love the things I do, so today’s post is hopefully a solution to my little […]

Beth + Alex

As I say with every wedding we have the pleasure of being a part of, Beth and Alex’s was certainly no exception. Beth was one of the first vendors I reached out to when I officially started my business in 2010. I had stumbled across her photography just weeks after our own wedding and immediately […]

The Year of Disclipined

The Year of Disclipined

For the last few years I’ve picked words like, ‘joyful,’ ‘content,’ and ‘fearless,’ to be my overarching goal guide for each twelve month period. Those words have inspired so many different chapters in my life. They have inspired […]

How I Changed My Life in 2017

That’s a pretty powerful title up there isn’t it? Well, it’s pretty accurate. 2017 wasn’t my favorite year. If you remember this post from earlier this summer you’ll remember I was just starting the beginning of an uphill battle with my health and wellness.
