To The People Who Love Winter, I Have a Question

This year I’ve been determined to change my likes and dislikes about the weather. I’m the kind of person who doesn’t like being outside.  Loathe it, actually.  Hot = sweat = washing my hair more often.  Cold = uncomfortable = snow = messy, wet house from tracking snow inside = dangerous roads from ice.  I’m […]

Happy 5th Birthday Zane!

Oh my word.  I’m in disbelief that today is Zane’s 5th birthday!  It’s his second birthday with us, and his first birthday with an esophagus. His first birthday being able to ingest food.  Sometimes it’s still hard for me to wrap my head around it all.  2.5 years ago we first saw his face and fell in […]

The Insurance Battle | A super personal post you may want to skip right over…

Have you ever known that you were right, but everyone who mattered to a situation insisted you were wrong?  But you stand up for what you know, you push through… and still people lie to your face.  You carefully take every step to make things right, but still, you’re considered crazy and annoying and there […]

I Copied Her and I’m Not Sorry.

In our line of work, creativity is king. And honestly? I’m not that creative. I prefer to see things and tweak them to make them their best. Because of that, I try not to look at other photographers work that often. I know- it sounds a little crazy! But it affects me and when I’m […]

Journal Entry from Meetcha Day | Adoption

We woke up crazy early that morning in Sofia, Bulgaria, still jet-lagged, but filled with nervous excitement.  Honestly, I still felt like a fraud.  We had this huge support system back home rooting for us, yet we were just regular people.  We’d spent 8 months fundraising and working like mad to prove to two countries that […]

18 Days in the Hospital… in Boston

If medical things mess with you, then don’t read this post.  Please, just don’t scroll down because it is really rough.  There isn’t blood or anything, but there’s tons of wires and tubes, and I know not everyone is okay seeing that.  But for those parents who are preparing for something like this, it’s helpful […]
