Tomorrow marks the beginning of the last 90 days 0f 2018. Kind of crazy to think about. On the one hand, 90 days feels like a long time. 90 days is so far away!

Play Sessions are my favourite. I know, I know. I say that about every type of session I do, but these sessions are SO much fun! There is something incredible about capturing the every day moments that might otherwise be forgotten as our kiddos grow! Zev’s 3rd birthday session was full of those fun, every […]

It makes me feel old to say it, but I’m raising a tween girl. Pretty sure she was just born yesterday, so I don’t know how we got to this point, but let me tell you, I am not ready! I am not ready for puberty, make up, boys… all the things my tween daughter […]

Meet my baby sister… well, she isn’t quite the baby, but she’s younger than me so it counts! She got married in March, blending two great families into one amazing family. We were hoping to do some family photos then, to celebrate this new beginning but March in Utah is a little bit dreary and […]

This website and blog have been around for about a year now, and it’s still pretty empty on the blog side. Let’s change that shall we!? I figure we will start at the beginning.
