Kids’ Room Refresh – Boy/Girl Shared Room

It’s Done! Our boy/girl shared room update. This room as been a long time coming. For some reason, I had the hardest time decorating a space for Alivia and Kingston to share. I would go back and forth with feeling bad that I was making the room too neutral, so I would add “fun” and…

Alivia Gets Glasses

If some of you have noticed, Alivia just recently got glasses. We had no idea she was struggling with her vision. The school had a screening, and we got a note home saying she had astigmatism. She had never mentioned anything about not being able to see well. I got her into the eye doctor…

Alivia’s First Day of Kindergarten

Letterboard I can’t believe I have a kindergartener. It doesn’t quite seem like I’m old enough to have “school-aged” kids. I mean, yesterday I brought my first baby home from the hospital right?

I am very passionate about my life as a mother, and I just want to portray the beauty of motherhood through my words and photos here on my blog. So pour yourself a hot cup of coffee or a big glass of wine, snuggle up under a big cozy blanket and stay awhile.

If you are ever interested in a specific topic that you would like to be seen discussed here, I would love to hear about it. Feel free to message me at any time.

I am also now booking commercial photography and local portrait sessions for the year of 2018.
