WELCOME to MY blog!

I'm so glad you're here! I hope you find hope, laughter, authenticity, and beauty here in my little corner of the internet. It's a little scary to be sharing my thoughts with the whole world, but I believe we all have things to share than can help other people - through trials, through joy, through hard lessons, and through wisdom. Stick around for a while!

I’ve been working on this blog post for the better part of 2 months. I’ve written, deleted, re-written. Over and over again. It sat in my drafts folder untitled until yesterday afternoon. I knew my deadline. October 1. The beginning of Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month. What I didn’t know was how to even […]

Summer months can be CRAZY. Everyone is traveling, it’s hot outside, and getting calendars to sync can be a challenge. Rameeta and I texted multiple times trying to find a time to find a time when we could get a family portrait session scheduled before they moved back to Canada. After a lot of trying, […]

If there were ever something that means the world to me, it’s when clients choose me to capture their family’s memories. Photography is an investment. I know choosing who takes your family’s pictures is a big deal! So when someone becomes a repeat client? GUYS. Biggest compliment. Katie and Willow are the sweetest pair you’ll […]

There are some people that you meet and you just instantly click with them. I felt that way when I met Janae years ago at church! I still remember it – I had already seen her here and there (we go to a pretty big church), and I had heard her lead worship (Janae, her […]

I am just the luckiest. I have to start there. I get to meet sweet families on the verge of bringing a brand new life into their homes. Full of joy, full of hope. It is one of the happiest times in life, and I have to pinch myself that I get to be a […]

Getting older is crazy. Mainly because you keep getting older without really feeling any older. But then you look around and everyone is married and has kids – including the people you were kids with. Jamie and I have known each other forever. FOR. EV. ER. (Sandlot reference, Smalls.) There are pictures of us together […]

What in the world is going on? My baby sister is graduating college in 5 days. How is that even possible? Today she took her last final! On Saturday she will walk across the stage to accept her nursing degree and then her nurse’s pin. It’s kind of hard to wrap my mind around it! […]

Do you remember Nana in Peter Pan? The Darling children’s nanny? Let me tell you something – she’s got nothing on Shaun and Rachel’s dog-ter (you know, dog daughter), Daphne. Shaun and Rachel brought her along for their maternity session, and she is just adorable. You can tell how proud she is to become a […]

I have lived in Oklahoma City┬ánearly my whole life. After moving away my freshman year of college to go to Oklahoma State for one year, I came right back. Traveling and experiencing new things are both high on my list of interests, but there’s just a big part of me that loves coming back to […]

If you have experienced pregnancy loss, please be aware that this blog post may be a trigger for you. It shares the story of pregnancy loss and rainbow babies.   Today is April Fool’s Day, which for many people means that we have a little fun being goofy with our friends and family. I still […]
