Nerves thrumming, hair smoothing, checking my makeup one last time. It was time for our family photo session for Logan’s one-year birthday. I was nervous about pretty much everything. How would my dress photograph? Did my hair look OK or was the humidity making it wave in a funky way? Would Travis have his “Chandler […]

What it’s like to be on the other side of the camera

Jun 26, 2019

If you’ve planned a wedding before (or been close to someone who’s planned a wedding), you’ve probably heard someone say, ‘everyone has their wedding story.’ By “wedding story,” people mean the thing — or two, if your luck is really bad — that went awry on the wedding day. I love when people ask this […]

Our wedding story: Icemageddon 2013 | Dallas, TX

Dec 7, 2018

Recently I’ve been watching the Netflix series “Chef’s Table” and I can’t get enough. I like food, sure. But I love the stories told of each chef and their struggle to be successful, their passion to create the most beautiful and delicious food, constantly pushing themselves to be better. Their passion and joy for cooking […]

Why I love being a photographer

May 2, 2018

Growing up in New England, spring was always my favorite season. After enduring months and MONTHS of bitter cold, countless snow storms, ice, and a general hue of gray cast over the earth, spring was the season of the new. Lush flowers, the smell of the ocean, and a little sunshine can cheer up even […]

If you know anything about me and my business, you know I’m a big advocate of strong marriages. I honestly do believe they have the power to change not only our family trees but our communities and our world. I’ve heard it said many times that the best gift you can give your children is […]

The biggest mistake I ever made in my marriage

If y’all know anything about me, you know I love to READ! Last year I had a crazy goal to read 50 books and even though I was soo sick all fall from pregnancy, I managed to read 51 books. Crossing that off the list sure did feel good! I always get a lot of […]

Practical tips for reading more + my 2018 reading list

Feb 6, 2018

It’s hard to believe I’ve been making seasonal playlists for almost four years. Well, I actually did it a lot in college before the advent of Spotify but then life gets busy and it’s not as easy to listen to free music and playlists don’t happen. I love me some Pandora but Spotify is one […]

I remember sitting down at the end of 2016 and thinking 2017 was going to be an awesome year. 2016 was rough. I worked full-time for three quarters of the year while trying to run my business, have a healthy marriage, see my friends and family, and finish paying off my student loan debt. But […]

What I did in 2017 … and what I’m planning to do in 2018

Jan 9, 2018

I realize it’s now the beginning of November and “fall” has been in full swing for a month and a half. But, as we near the end of the year, I wanted to share the books rounding out my crazy 2017 reading 50 books goal. First, a recap of my summer list, what I read […]

Fall 2017 reading list

Nov 7, 2017

It’s that time of year again, folks — playlist time! This one’s been a labor of love over the past few months but I’m really digging how it turned out. While fall tends to be the craziest season of life for a Southern wedding photographer, I purposely decided to make the round up a bit […]
