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

Feb 21, 2018

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 […]

Winter 2018 playlist

Jan 29, 2018

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Sep 24, 2017

I have a crazy goal this year. I’m going to read 50 books. Let me explain. This is not a New Years resolution. I didn’t write this on my 2017 goals on December 31 and then carefully plan out which books I was going to read and how I was going to conquer it all. […]

My summer reading list

Jun 26, 2017

The temperatures are rising, skin is browning (or burning!), and vacations planned in the long cold months of winter are finally on the horizon! Summer is such a glorious time, is it not? What is it about summer that makes us want to live life a little slower and shrug off all the “have to […]

Summer 2017 playlist

Photo by Becca Lea Photography Before I got married, people would often talk about how easy it was to become like roommates with your spouse rather than partners, passing each other like ships in the night. On an intellectual level, I believed them but since I wasn’t married yet, I had no idea how easy […]

How to work on your marriage every day

Jun 12, 2017

I’m sure you wouldn’t be surprised to learn that when I was younger, I was always the girl with the camera. My friends and I would arrange photo shoots in our backyards and shoot rolls and rolls of film (cuz no one had a digital camera at that time besides the pros!) I loved dropping […]
