Birchberry Bonnets | a branding session
April 27, 2019

One of the best things about social media, in my opinion, is that it connects you with like minded people. Rachel of BirchBerry Bonnets reached out this winter about doing some photos for her darling baby brand. Rachel makes these beautiful, heirloom quality hats, bows, and bibs for babies. I love her style so very […]

Dad’s Petit Orchard Session
June 5, 2018

I absolutely love when the apple blossom trees are in bloom. For a second year, my friend Mara of Mara Elaine Photography¬†and I hosted Petit Orchard sessions. The best part of this year’s adventure was driving Mara’s brother’s 1939 red truck. Mara impresses me in many ways, that she can handle a vintage vehicle only […]

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 […]

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 […]

Atlanta, Georgia {in photos}
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 […]

February 8, 2017

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 Agree¬† Almost always […]
