Mom & Dad’s 31st Anniversary

About two weeks ago I had an idea to gift my parents with a fun anniversary photo session. The last time I remember doing a specific photoshoot or my parents was 2011! Which is just not acceptable as a photographer 😄 Also, please do yourself a favor and look at the photos from 2011 and have a […]

Penny’s First Birthday

It’s so hard to believe that our sweet niece is already a year old! It seems like it wasn’t that long ago we were meeting her for the first time, all tiny and squishy and new. She has grown into an adorable little toddler, and she’s so smart! Her first birthday party was on Saturday, […]

The First Snow

Not only was this the first snow of 2020, but it was also the first snow all winter! The past few years in Virginia, it hasn’t been unusual for most of our big snows to happen January-March. But we typically get at least a small amount of snow in December! But 2019 was just too […]

Almost 2020

It is insane to me that this is the end of an entire decade! And I just realized that I’ve been blogging for well over a decade (since 2008!)… How on earth that happened, I have no idea. So much has changed since then! Blogging has seen me as I graduated high school, started working […]

Christmas 2019

Wow, what a year it’s been! And what a wonderful Christmas we had. I decided to do one post to catch up on all the Christmas photos I have, instead of trying to do a bunch of posts. On the 17th, we took Joelle and some of her friends to Christmas Town! It ended up […]

I’m excited to be making this post! I now have two years of designing these photo books under my belt, so I feel confident in sharing the things I’m doing and what I’ve learned. The process of designing is SO fun for me, and seeing the finished product brings me so much joy. I’ve always […]

Here in Virginia, we got the most beautiful snow this past weekend! I can never resist going outside and taking as many photos as I can. I always want to drive to my parents house and take pictures in their beautiful backyard, but the roads are always too bad to make the trip. But thanks […]

I completely forgot that I needed to make this post until about 5 minutes ago… so it might be a little thrown together and not perfect, but that’s okay 😂 I told myself that I didn’t have to make this post, but it made me sad to think about ruining my streak! This is my 11th […]

While I love hiking, I am not always the most adventurous about choosing my trail. I like going on the trails that I know and love, and I’m not as excited about trying new trails. Which is ridiculous, I know, because all of the trails I love used to be unknown to me, and now […]

Have I been great at keeping up with posting this winter? Nope. Honestly, have I been great at keeping up with posting since I started this blog?? Also nope 😄 But I’m just fine with that! There are a lot of important things happening, and I actually have decided to put blogging on the back […]
