Monday Inspiration

Monday Inspiration
It's a brand new day, it's National Coffee Day, and it's a Monday. Hey, we can't win them all. Here is a little inspiration for you that I saw on Free People Blog. If you know anything about me, you know how true these words ring. I'm a big fan of inspirational quotes to get me through each day, and this one is awesome. It's actually my desktop wallpaper to remind [...]

My own worst enemy

My own worst enemy
You know those people who "live in the moment"? Well, I am not one of those people. I have come to the realization that people with the drive for success, and the determination to do it are "future seekers" and I am one of them. I work a full time job, run a photography business on the side, and am attempting to raise a beautiful little girl and maintain a marriage. T[...]

Starting something new

Starting something new
While I'm trying to be better about blogging, I'm also thinking, "What do I write about when I don't have any sessions to blog?" Well, I do have sessions to blog, but more on that later. Anyhow... What to write. What to write. Oh, how about documenting my oh so exciting life? Ok! While I can't write you a novel because I'm on my phone (so don't be mad when I say "t[...]

So, I know you're thinking I must have fallen off a cliff, right? Well, I kind of did. After having the baby, the business has gone by the wayside, and so has just picking up my camera. But you know, that's ok with me right now. I have enjoyed lots of unforgettable moments with my little 3 month old, because as everyone tells me, it goes by so fast. I don't want[...]

Monday Ramblings- A 5am Panic Attack

My eyes flew open and my heart was beating through my chest. I look at the clock- 5:15am. What am I doing up? Why do I feel like I’m having a panic attack? I lay there and try to go back to sleep, but my stomach is in a knot, and I can’t get back to sleep. I lay there in the silence of the dark room, and all of a sudden it hits me. I remember what I did to that little[...]

Monday Ramblings- Dear future self…

Dear future self, I know you got where you are now way too fast. Time flew by, you grew up, got more responsibilities, and within what seemed like a blink of an eye, your whole life changed. I know this because I am you, just younger, incessantly tapping my fingers on the proverbial desk, waiting for life to happen. Remember when you slept till 10 and worked all th[...]

Monday Ramblings- Sharing the Love

I'm a family photographer. Uh, duh. And so are about a bazillion other people, but one of the greatest things about being a photographer is the photog community. They are so supportive, helpful, educational, honest, and amazingly talented! I'm not naive- I know there are some out there to be hurtful, not helpful, but I'm not talking about them. I've joined an amazi[...]
