Welcome to the blog

I cannot believe I’m getting to type this – we’re going to become parents! Like to a baby human, that’s a mix of our DNA. It’s crazy! I’ve got a whirlwind story of how we found out (which involved lots of screaming “NO WAY!” and several trips to CVS at 3 am to get more […]

Our Family is Growing!

November 18, 2017

Look I’m an emotional person. I find an emotional vibe to connect to in every situation. Being an emotional person has served me well in the past, but it’s not been without it’s ups and downs. Yes, I may cry at iPad commercials (and Dustin laughs at me for it) but I am able to […]

Why Being Emotional is My Strength

September 15, 2015

Traveling is in my blood, it’s something that I am so blessed to be able to do and I love when I can meet with others to capture them during their travels. Recently, I was in Europe on vacation (the post on my travels there is coming next week!), I was able to photograph Jason […]

Jason + Joanna

March 25, 2015

My first meeting with Dustin was not one of my proudest moments. It was actually during one of the worst and most infuriating days I had ever experienced, (or at least in a fit of teenage angst, I thought it was the worst day.) In order to make myself feel better, I stopped at a […]

Our Love Story

January 19, 2015

Recently, my friend Shannon came into town to photograph a wedding with me and we decided to get our anniversary photos done a little earlier this year. This is something we want to do every year because it’s a chance to document not only our marriage, or how we change from year to year but […]

November 7, 2014

I’m normally so much better about handling life. But I will admit that I’ve fallen behind these last couple of weeks and here’s the main reason…(no I’m not pregnant) WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!!!  It was a crazy stressful couple of weeks while we were sending papers, having every ounce of our financial life inspected and getting […]

August 8, 2014

Taking a cue from one of my favorites husband/wife duo’s out there, Amy & Jordan who share stories from their life in “The Pink Slip Files”, (where they keep slips of paper with memories in a vase), Dustin and I decided to do this ourselves, because memories are fleeting and there are just so many things we […]

The Memory Box: Mud Slinging

June 30, 2014

My goal for 2014 was to read 100 books, and I probably won’t hit that (ah, new years resolutions) but for now I wanted to share some of the books I’ve read recently and encourage you to check them out! I post reviews on my Goodreads page if you would like to see them and […]
