I
knew that I wanted my wedding business to be a little different.... I didn't want my brides being surprised with who they were going to have on the wedding day... I wanted to have a second shooter... not hire different second shooters. This was VERY important to me... I wanted this person to become a part of my brand... my business... and be long term. Almost 3 years ago - I...  View This Post >

M
y special daughter. I'm sure I'll do my best to fight back the tears.... My hands will be a little more weary as I try to zip your dress. You'll be the most radiant you've ever been.... And I'll still be wondering what I ever did to deserve you. I'll hug you so tight... I'll kiss your cheeks like I did when you were small enough to fit in my arms... And I'll...  View This Post >

T
he term 'rockstar' is used very often in our photo industry... 'rockstar photographer' if you will.... Usually this photographer is widely known in the photo world... travels often... speaks at conventions.. among many other things considered 'rockstarish'....

C
hase and I have a pretty good relationship -- people always joke about how we're perfect... and if something ever happened with us that the world must be ending... That fills my heart... and it also makes me laugh... It hasn't been 'easy' for us... and we're certainly not perfect... We've actually had a pretty rough road... Most people don't know this -- but our first...  View This Post >

I want Saturday morning cartoons and Sunday morning breakfast.... like fill up your entire dining room table - have to sit on the sofa... kind of breakfast. I want evening walks on Monday and endless popcorn and movies on Tuesday. I want a random trip to Walmart on Wednesday -- just to get ice cream and diapers.

A tendency

View This Post >
So I've always had a tendency to always think about the next day... or what I have to do next... It's pretty much a curse - honestly. I have trouble falling asleep at night because I'm constantly creating lists for my lists in my head. When I was younger, I had to keep a piece of paper by my bed, so that I could write out EVERYTHING I was thinking about.. and if I woke up in the...  View This Post >

hen did we get to this point of accepting the... "well you can just photoshop that out".... phrase!?!?! I am SO tired of hearing this at sessions and weddings... and I'm so tired of saying it myself.... You are beautiful... Your nose looks just fine..... Your waist does not need to be smaller.....
