POSTED IN: Personal, Portraits

Oh, it’s been awhile. I’ve missed this blog and my chance to write and share things in this format & forum. Looking back…I really, truly can’t believe how fast time moves along – it literally boggles my mind! It was a wonderful, swimming, playing, boating, paddling-filled summer, followed by a crazy full, busy and fun […]

This is always one of my favorites times of year…when, although there is always the hustle and bustle of the holidays over the past few weeks, there is somehow permission to take a break from everything else. To push the pause button on the normal lunch making, working, carpool, practices, homework, driving, delivering, day to […]

Dear Macy… My sweet girl. I’ve been thinking back to this day, 6 years ago…your first day of Kindergarten. I can remember your excitement, your slightly nervous but giddy energy, how we shopped for your first day of school outfit, how you could hardly wait to wear those sparkly Lelli Kelly shoes. I can remember […]

POSTED IN: Personal

After doing some of these ‘Everyday Moments’ posts in 2014, there was one thing I realized…not only do I value the chance to pause and look back at these moments (as time just moves too darn fast), but it was the nudge I needed to make sure that I get my personal photos out of […]

Happy New Year my friends! I hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful holiday, spent with family, friends and loved ones. Like most of you, I’m sure, December is just really, really busy. Wonderful and full, but busy! On top of all things holiday, we have the added bonus of birthday celebrations for both of my girls […]

One thing that I continue to struggle with (and I’m sure I’m not alone in this), is keeping up on my *own* personal photos. When busy season is in full swing, and editing for clients is prioritized, the images of my own family sometimes fall to the wayside. I’m always trying to think about ways to […]

Ah…..photographing your own children. Not just in a casual day to day way. Rather, in a, we’re going to curl your hair, pick out outfits, and head to a destination kind of way.  I’m not exaggerating when I say it makes my heart race a little bit just thinking about it.  At the end of […]

United 2014.   When I registered for this photography conference, I honestly was a little uncertain. I had never gone before and wasn’t sure what to expect. It seemed like a wonderful community of talented photographers, but they all seemed to know each other…would they be as welcoming as I’d hoped? Would it be worth […]

Yes, I forced my parents to go in front of the camera. I did….thankfully they agreed and didn’t put up a fight. :) But let me back up a bit… If you’ve read this blog over the past year, you may have caught this very personal post that I wrote last spring.  Not only was […]

A Tribute…


Hello friends…. I know it’s been a bit quiet around here lately…there are so many things on my mind, but, sometimes life throws a few things in your path that require you to push the pause button for a bit.   This past week, my family lost someone very special.  My father-in-law, George A. Jump. […]
