This is a really appropriate week for me to talk about switching things up, since I didn’t have time to post this on Sunday!   Hello friends! Happy 3rd week of February! We’re almost through the hump of this month and I can’t even tell you how excited that makes me. This past week was […]

Switching Things Up- Week 3


Hello friends! How are you doing this week?! Still going strong on the wagon? Or did you let yourself fall off? I hope it’s the first, and I hope you’ve started with tip 1 on making a habit.   I’ve been working, did my first inventory at work, celebrated my husband’s birthday (even though he […]

Getting Stuff Done With Depression- Week 2


Ahh February! Welcome to the month of quitting. At least for me, February is my “busy month” and no matter how strong I started in January with my resolutions, in February, I quit. Between 3 birthdays, Valentine’s day, and working full time, I’m exhausted and burnt out. Also, our household inevitably gets some sort of […]

How to Stay “On the Wagon”


I’ve know the Cox family since I was in high school. I used to bring cookies over for Miss Harlei, I’d babysit them, watch scary movies with them, and be over at their house all the time. As we all got older, and life starts happening, I sadly ended up spending less and less time […]

Harlei- Downtown Dancing


There’s nothing I love more than doing sessions for my friends, family, and neighbors. I love spreading my talent and love to the people close to me. When Shirley posted and was looking for a photographer for family photos, I hoped and prayed she’d choose me, because we live in the same neighborhood, and I […]

Clayton Family

Elena- Vibrant Vineyards


Patricia and Justin Martinez are soulmates. It’s so obvious when you watch them. The way they interact together, the way they look at each other when the other is talking, the way they touch and kiss.. everything they do together screams love. I grew up knowing Patricia and her family from school, and our small […]

Justin & Patricia


So, something about me is, I like to meet all my clients before I shoot them. I like to hear them talk about their lives, what they’re interested in, and “feel out” their personality. I also do this so they know me! I try to be as transparent as possible online, so what you see […]

Makenzie- Blossoming Botanica Gardens


To this day, I don’t know what possesses my husband to wake up at 3-4am and drive us on vacations. He does only do this when we travel far and want Gabe to sleep in the car so he won’t get bored. But man, I don’t know how he does it (yes I do, sugarfree […]
