One of the best things about off season is having more time to take part in fun projects! During busy season, 9 times out of 10 I have to say no to fun things like styled shoots because I’m too busy taking care of my regular clients. I get totally bummed out when that happens [ Continue Reading ... ]

One thing that a lot of other photographers ask me a lot is, “How do I know when it’s time to go full time??”. I struggled with this for a long time myself, especially once my business started to grow and I started to almost resent my full time job because I started to feel [ Continue Reading ... ]

First of all, I sincerely apologize if you clicked this link hoping that my big announcement would be a pregnancy. Sadly, that is not the case…and most likely won’t be for at least a little while longer (sorry, Mom!). Second, I can’t believe this day is finally here!

A couple days ago, John and I were going HAM on some spring cleaning. I’m talking purging all over the place! We literally got rid of two big laundry baskets full of stuff. Just random stuff!
