Blessings of 2012

Hello friends! I hope you all have had an amazing holiday season with your loved ones. I know for me it has been so nice to take a little break from the photography world and spend some much needed time with my family. As the hustle of Christmas is winding down and we approach the new year, it’s so important to look back on the current year and mark the things you are most thankful for! It’s common to see posts about resolutions for the future, but I thought I’d back things up and count my blessings first. I know I forget to do this frequently. So, I wanted to share a few things that are filling my heart as we start 2013.

My family. This is by far my most cherished blessing. I am married to an amazing man. He supports me in everything I do. He has also blessed me by being an incredible father. We have two loving little girls with huge hearts and vibrant personalities.

My business. The past year has been such a learning experience and my business has grown beyond what I could have ever imagined. I am so thankful for amazing clients, the support of my family and friends, and the support and friendship from fellow photographers. And yes, my new logo and website will be here soon as promised! There will be new and exciting things happening in 2013!

My “real” job. As most of you know, photography is not all I do. I am a nurse at an OB/GYN office. I am called every day to care for women and doing so makes me a stronger, more compassionate person. I work with an incredible group of women who are hard workers and good friends.

God. There is nothing like starting a new business to challenge your faith. He is my strength. I start and end every day with prayer. I am in awe of what God has provided for me and my family this year!

Here’s to many blessings to you and your families this upcoming year… just remember to count them:)

I’ll leave you with a peek of a wedding I shot with my friend Karen last month. This adorable couple will be coming to the blog soon!



Merry Christmas | My Family

It’s that time of year. Lights, trees, carols, presents, shopping… it consumes people from the last bite of their Thanksgiving dinner until the last gift is opened on Christmas morning. The older I get, the faster Christmas time gets here. I envy the childhood version of myself anxiously awaiting the arrival of it all. It seemed to take forever for Christmas to come! Now, all I have to do is blink and it’s over. As a mother the best part about Christmas is watching my children’s excitement and joy while rushing to the tree and opening all of their presents. It’s something that is indescribable. My girls are my inspiration for the season now. Here are some of our holiday pictures. Please note the AMAZING banner I got on Etsy here. I hope that all of you have a truly Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year!
