“Cozy Room” Renton

“The Cozy Room” in Renton is SO CUTE! There were a few hiccups with checking in. I didn’t find the Access code through the app. I only just now found it on the website under “Check-In instructions”. I had to wait for other guests to let me in! In the past when I’ve stayed at […]

Love Story: Preface

Looking back at each memory, exact details are foggy, but the emotion? Oh. I can still feel the smile on my 13 year old cheeks. We did learn the season in which Clynn and I first “noticed” each other was longer than we thought. I would have told you each of these beginning chapters fell […]

Watch Out Washington…

I’m Back. We sat in our secret garden last night. Bright as day at 8:00pm. Clynn turned to Leo, “It’s Momma’s turn now. Us Moon Boys better buckle in. It’s going to be a long crazy summer with our Sun People.” Referring to James & I I’m awake by 6:30am…because it feels right. I go […]

Sometimes I just need to…

Sometimes I just need to write. As I sit reviewing my website, my colors, my wording, my images, I can feel a re-brand in the works. I don’t plan on shooting it from the rooftops, but you’ll notice. (see what I did there?) It’s overwhelming to see all I want to change. Adding, taking away, […]

The Best Day | Wooded A-Frame

The following is a day dream I’ve been developing for about six months. I have several of these set in different locations during different periods of my life.

Busy Is Not A Badge Of Honor…

But don’t shame the busy. You may have heard before, “Busy Is Not A Badge Of Honor”…but that same person probably didn’t say, “It’s okay if you like to be busy.” Busy is not a badge of honor, no. But loving your job so much it doesn’t feel like work can be. It’s okay to […]

Why I Choose Wedding Photography

If you’ve ever been to a work seminar or heard an inspirational speaker even open their mouth you’ve probably heard something about “finding your why”. Digging deep to find out WHY you wake up and do whatever it is that you do. My “Why” has changed allot in the past 3.5 years but a moment […]

Birthday Month

This is the month that I turn 28 and I’m taking it pretty seriously. Since the drop of “13 going on 30” I’ve always imagined my 30’s would be the most epic decade ever. It would be the decade I discovered what problems life held beyond the financial. My 30’s would be the decade of […]
