  I’ve recently begun a new creative endeavor because if I’m not creating something, my soul dies a little. Maybe that’s too dramatic, but ya get me. If I’m not expressing my creative energies in some capacity- the kitchen, on paper, journaling, with my camera, painting, gardening, celebrating, dreaming, home decor…I’m not entirely myself. As […]

  Our homeschool winter break consists of a loosely structured routine of mealtime, chore time, quiet time, together time, Selena and hip hop dancing to Youtube videos time, and Netflix time. The weather has been wet, gloomy, cold, and unpleasant lately. This has kept us indoors and I’m all about it! I love these sweet, […]

December mornings in our 12$ matching Target PJ’s, jamming to Michael Jackson, Selena, and Jessica Simpson…ARE. THE. BEST! My heart is so full and happy with all this holiday cheer and love.              

Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree- Austin, Tx

December 12, 2018

When Amie & I connected about her vision for a relaxed, “normal”, day-at-home, with her daughters, I was instantly excited! Excited to capture a dedicated and passionate expression of motherhood.  Amie takes photos all the time of her family and is rarely in any of them because she is behind the camera. I, too, know […]

Just the Girls- Round Rock, Texas

We’ve been pretty busy this fall: settling our new homeschool year flow, settling in our new home, and just the usual stuff- laundry, cleaning toilets, learning to bake, etc. All good, all beautiful stuff!       I should note that the image below was not in Texas! It was in Canada, taken early October. […]

November 7, 2018

Stepped away from my camera and computer recently. Back at it and going through older images- this sweet baby boy was less than 9 days young in these photos. So glad to reflect on past sessions. I truly love this job I do with great passion and soul. I love the newness of newborns. How […]

Sweet Newborn Baby Christian – Austin, Texas

Texas bluebonnets have long been a mixed bag for me. They are our state flower, super beautiful and vibrant AND only appear once a year. I’m not big on the super posed, prop ish and pinteresty photography aka chalkboards, balloons, matchy outfits, including, bluebonnet sessions etc.  And, yes, they have their place and can be appreciated. […]

I’m still trying to declutter my massive catalogue of photos I’ve taken and I stumbled upon some beautiful images of the kids. My favorite ones are the ones where they are in their essential flow of joy, silly, wild, goofy, quirky and boyness …         ,

Perfectly Imperfect Portrait – Austin, TX

February 9, 2018

  We are absolutely loving these days before spring arrives. Starting our mornings with cheerful eagerness to see cardinals and green buntings in our bird feeders, checking on our seed starters for any new signs of germination and growth, fresh tulips decorating the table…delicious rose hip tea with sweet little messages, and cozy blankets at […]
