And we made it. Limbo, no more. Next Chapter Everett Wa.

I am sitting between the most glorious floor to ceiling windows soaking in the beginning of my next chapter of life. Downtown Everett is my home, now. I am going on walks, exploring all of the restaurants and pubs, taking the kids to the children’s museum, and LOVING being neighbors with one of my favorite Vegan Cafes. My apartment is stunning. More than I could have dreamt for myself. And I’m here. And it’s mine. I have a home.

I am unpacking for the first time in FOUR YEARS, you guys. This is insane. I am no longer a nomad. Though, parts of the lifestyle will be with me and my family forever.

Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who read the blog and kept tabs on my beautiful family through our wild adventures. We are all so ready to unpack and be home and start fresh!

Clynn achieved a very impressive position as a Project Manager for another glazing company. He’ll be living nearby for ease in coparenting and such. Very proud of him. We’re both cheering each other on and doing our best to find our new pace and dynamic as friends, lovers, family, etc.

I’m still working at the cafe, for now. Ready to double down on Studio work now that I have a place to leave out my laptop, print photos, and make progress again. I’m VERY excited! Now that I handle all of my own finances, I was floored to discover the studio is viewed as verifiable income source for me out on my own. I remember when I first started hearing things like “5 years” “7 years” for when banks and rentals and car dealerships would begin to take my small business seriously. We’re here, guys!

Also, that may have been true in 2015 when I started. The current economic state will begin to take your income seriously much sooner these days. Good news for small businesses and dedicated entrepreneurs!

So, cheers. THANK YOU for being here. I truly appreciate you more than you could ever know. It may sound pathetic, but I have cried, MANY TIMES, in gratitude for how many people come back to check in on me. How many clients STILL return for family photos, maternity photos, and exciting milestones.

The world of The Studio? It feels so hurt from the pandemic. So damaged and jaded. But it’s beautiful just the same. Still alive. Still a heartbeat. I am photographing weddings this summer. How. INCREDIBLE. is that?

Check back in, soon! Love ya!

Cheers to more Mornings At Home! I need an oil change…again. My poor car has a million miles on it…again. But I am HOME for another morning. Drinking luxurious slow home lattes instead of coffee stand quickies. Surrounded by my things. With one of my kiddos having breakfast and relaxing in the living room. You […]

Mornings At Home

Ohhh my goodness. Home Sweet Home. For just a moment. I am SO CLOSE to a more relaxing chapter in life and it seems every corner shows a few more days of hustle. You been there? Tell me I’ll make it. Optimists to the front, please. After many “little” delays in the airport last night, […]

Evian & Trey’s cozy rainy day wedding at Shangri-La On The Green was a wedding to remember! We certainly were not expecting for the day to be so wet and rainy. Every little patch of sunshine was a moment to run out and grab some photos. When I think of their wedding day at Shangri-La […]

Shangri-La On The Green

I made a Mint Chocolate Latte. In my home. At 4am. I steamed Almond Milk with Mint Chip Califia Creamer. Added it to my Ember mug. Poured a Nespresso shot of espresso. Then, topped the mug off with more steamed almond milk. Now, it sits by my laptop on my little glass writing desk at […]
