visiting NOLA {again!}
March 6, 2018

  I don’t know what luck I stumbled upon to get to visit New Orleans TWICE in one year, but I am taking it. Seth and I planned this trip for right after Thanksgiving, which is a perfect time for a weekend getaway. Instead of shopping on Black Friday we flew from frigid Minnesota to […]

Italy {Part Three}
October 3, 2017

My last few days in Italy were magical and fun. Aside from the excellent teaching I received I walked away from my time and experiences feeling an overwhelming sense of gratitude– I was able to lean into a few truths I knew I needed to accept and change in regards to my business. One of […]

Italy {Part Two}
September 26, 2017

Our first day in Italy was a full one! We had a lovely breakfast and then headed up to the old part of the city for an entire day of shooting. Castellabate reminded me of a fairy tale… so incredibly beautiful and so hauntingly old. This town was founded in 1123. No big deal. I […]

Italy {Part One}
September 21, 2017

A few days ago I returned from an exciting adventure: I attended The Secret Retreat, a photography workshop in beautiful┬áCastellabate, Italy. It was the experience of a lifetime, and while I love and prefer to be home, I am so incredibly glad that I went. I found out about this wonderful event through Facebook. After […]

Brooklyn, NYC
August 25, 2017

I just returned home from a fantastical trip to Brooklyn, New York! I’ve wanted to explore Brooklyn for several years, but in my visits to New York it hasn’t been something I’ve been able to do. When my college friend Arlene invited me to her home in BedStuy I jumped at the opportunity. Arlene and […]

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 […]

Loveless Lake 2016
August 18, 2016

I’ve had the honor of visiting Loveless Lake for three summers in a row now. It’s hard to believe that! It still feels very new to me. My sweet friend Kate and her husband own a lovely piece of property that has bene in their family for years. Kate is an excellent host and cook […]

LuLaRoe Branding for Shannon
April 23, 2016

When I shared with my long-time blog buddy Shannon that I’d be in Vegas for a quick trip she asked if I’d be willing to do some LuLaRoe branding photography for herself and two other consultants. If you aren’t familiar with LuLaRoe it’s darling, comfortable, and fun clothing sold in a variety of limited edition […]

Dentons in the desert
April 23, 2016

A few weeks ago I was in the beautiful Nevada desert visiting my dear friends, The Denton Family! I love them so much. Kate and Jayne are my Goddaughters and I just adored my time with them. This session reminded me once again how much I love photographing around rain. It can be tricky {obviously} […]
