making your own Kombucha + Cold Press
August 16, 2017

Last summer I decided to learn how to make kombucha and cold press. Both are beverages that I absolutely love, and have spent a good chunk of money on. I knew I could DIY both, but I admit that I was intimidated by kombucha, and a little worried about making it safely. Now that I’ve […]

my favorite camera bags
August 4, 2017

I’m a big believer in taking your camera with you everywhere. I obviously love shooting professionally, but when I get to play around with my own personal photography I’ve found that I grow more and end up with images that capture my life. In order to take better photos I need to practice and that […]

a waffle bar baby sprinkle
April 13, 2017

A sprinkle is a small baby shower, usually thrown for a mama who is welcoming her second {or more!} baby. Last month I hosted a waffle-themed shower for my friend Courtney and had so much fun putting together all the party details… Courtney’s nearly two-year-old daughter nicknamed her baby brother Waffle, and the name has […]

I’ve had these photos saved for other a year, waiting for the perfect moment to share them. My mom has this beautiful, rustic, well-loved recipe box that I’ve admired and loved for years.

February 8, 2017

I believe in the power of photography. Recently, I taught a workshop at the studio and loved sharing the bits and pieces of knowledge I’ve collected along the way. One piece that I shared is that even as a photographer myself I still invest in professional photography for me. This is so important. We just […]

February 8, 2017

I feel so terribly behind on blogging, which is why blogging sometimes annoys me and I want to throw in the towel. But, I know that’s value to writing down my thoughts and experiences and sharing memories for the years to come. Sometimes I wonder if I’ll pick up my old blog, Creole Wisdom, as […]

Another month, hooray! I’m surprised and a bit delighted to see how January’s photo challenge worked out. Courtney and I were cracking up as we created the prompts for last and this month. I think I’m ready for a bit of spring and suffering from some cabin fever. January-March in Minnesota is just HARD, but […]

my one little word for 2017 and a free gift for you
January 3, 2017

For the past several years I have chosen a one-little-word for the year. I’m a big list person, but resolutions are a bit daunting and I’ve found that focusing on something small– like one word, results in a more profound experience for me. Past year’s words have been: Authenticity Listen Be Still AgreeĀ  Almost always […]

twenty-nine self portraits
January 1, 2017

Over the past twelve months I’ve taken 29 self-portraits over the duration of my 29th year of life. Each year I like to choose a personal photography project and it just so happens that birthday is very close to New Year’s. In years past I’ve completed 365 daily photo prompts, monthly Instagram challenges, and various, […]

Christmas Eve Dinner
December 26, 2016

Dad really out did himself this year with Christmas Eve dinner. After mass we headed over to his place to cook up a divine feast. I am still thinking about the rice. I’m not ashamed to say that rice is my favorite food. I used to eat boxes of white rice in college with soy […]
