I have dreaded, and I mean DREADED this day for quite some time. I didn’t flinch when it was time to retire the Frozen merchandised everything, or bat an eye when the barbie dolls found their way to the donation box. But when the topic of a first phone came up, I about shit myself. […]

“Who’s going to photograph your wedding?” has been the most common and frequent question I’ve been asked since I got engaged – and I finally have an answer!! I’m sharing all the details, and telling you how I really feel about being on “the other side” of the whole wedding photographer thing. It’s not a […]

I thought about you the other day. Shortly after I posted my long-awaited ring selfie that took 15 tries until it was Insta-worthy, I thought about you. Because up until an hour before that Instagram post, I was you. For many years, I was the one who felt a very specific twang in the gut […]
