Sunday Morning 05.24

This week went by fast and slow at the same time.  Every day we thought it was the next day, always one day ahead of ourselves.  Then Friday came and it felt like I had lost the previous 4 days.  School is done!!  I’m so excited to have no more…

CAMERA: CANON 5D MARK III  |  LENS:  50MM 1.4  |  APERATURE:  1.4  |  SHUTTER:  1/640s  |  ISO:  640 When she finds a book that she’s really interested in she just can’t put it down.  Reading on the floor, in my little studio space, while Mom photographs peace lily blooms.

Peace Lilies

This morning while tending to my plants I started to cut off the green Peace Lilies.  As I was laying them on the floor I noticed how beautiful they looked like that and I was instantly inspired.  So I did what any inspired photographer would do, stop everything and set…

The End of 4th Grade

Today is the day!  Today ends my daughter’s 4th grade year.  Wow.  It’s really hard to even believe that we are moving into 5th grade in the fall and that she’s 10 years old.  It’s been a good year.  We really loved her 4th grade teacher and we continue to…

Clouds Over The Rocky Mountains

Sunday Morning 05.17

Happy Sunday Morning!  I’m really excited to share my first Sunday Morning with you this week!!  This is going to be a weekly series where I recap the week and share with you some of the little finds I have come across online.  I like sharing with all of you…

Black and White Children’s Photography

I am very partial to black and white images of kids.  It brings out more emotion, a deeper connection for me.  Don’t get me wrong I love great fun color images for kids but typically I love the black and white conversions more.  I think you can see their personality…

In Retrospect

I finished the book What Happens When Woman Walk in Faith by Lysa TerKeurst today.  Ladies I highly suggest looking into this book.  It is so good.  I’ve had quite a few books over the last 9 months show up in front of me exactly when I needed them and this…

All Mom’s Are Awesome

There are many different types of Mom’s out there and each one of you is amazing!  We each play different roles and even play many roles throughout the day.  Some Mom’s stay home with their kids.  Some Mom’s work full time outside the home.  Other Mom’s choose to remain home after…

To My Friend

I can’t even remember how we met exactly.  I remember getting an email from you asking me if I would photograph some children’s headband pieces and the rest is history.  We’ve worked on many projects together and I have had the honor of witnessing your dreams come true.  I love your creativity…
