Last year was an amazing year. It was a hard year. It was a rewarding year. It was one of those years that will be etched in my heart forever. So many things happened that it would take more than a blog post to cover them all. On top of going full-time into the photography business and celebrating our first year as home owners, we became FIRST TIME PARENTS!!! I know, I know… the whole  taking your business into your own hands and having a baby at the same time might sound crazy. And it is! Nothing is the same anymore.

Happy New Year, friends! I know everyone is excited to turn the page and start a new chapter in your life, in your business. While people everywhere are already working on their New Year’s Resolutions, I encourage you to really challenge yourself this year. Are you starting your own photography business? Are you working on a marketing strategy? Are you starting a blog? Remember not to give up when the road seems steep. It will be so much more rewarding to look back at the end of the year and see all that you have achieved. View full post »

It was finally time for the workshop at Sierra Vista!  As I pulled in, I made sure that I didn’t embarrass myself with my parking job (If you know me, you know I CANNOT possibly do ONE good parking job). I saw a smiling face, and said Hello! Gay responded and asked what camera I was using which lead to a small chat. As we walked inside the cabin, Megan came towards me and greeted me with a hug.

With my blogposts, I typically give advice and tips to brides on their wedding planning, but today I am going to be a little more personal and give you a glance into my life. View full post »

I have found the one whose love is unconditional. I have found the one who brings the best out of me. I have found the one who always has a big smile on his face and tells me everything will be all right. I have found the one who brightens my day every morning. View full post »


Memorial Day, in my opinion, is one of the most significant days celebrated in the United States and should be respected by all Americans. Nothing in this world is truly free, especially freedom. Memorial Day is a day set aside each year for Americans to remember those who served our Country in the Armed Forces to secure our Independence and Freedom. View full post »

This Easter is especially important to me because it is the first one I get to spend with my newborn son. He is my little miracle! He was not supposed to be born until April 18, 2014 but came a little early, March 27, 2014. This was definitely a surprise, but I consider it a blessing to get an additional 3 weeks to spend with him! View full post »
