I am a professional photographer, speaker, writer and blogger based in the Pacific Northwest. I have spent 10 years building a successful photography studio and have turned that business into a corporation; creating and running conferences, mentorship programs and traveling across the globe speaking to small business owners and creatives as a business professional, all while raising two small children and serving and giving back to my community.
My platform exists to inspire the beginning entrepreneur, the working or stay-at-home mom and every woman in between. I encourage and motivate women though beautiful imagery & storytelling.
My followers range from early 20s college age girls who are inspired to find themselves traveling the globe, the first time mom trying to find balance in her new world to those in mid-life looking to FINALLY grab life by the horns. I currently reside in Seattle, WA with my Youtuber/photographer husband and our two precious daughters, Wisdom (age 7) and Courage (8 months).

don’t know how I got so lucky, but raising these girls has been the joy of my life. 😍 Loving them well, has taught me how to love myself even better.

Today is National Daughter’s Day, a day to celebrate and cherish our daughters who bring so much love and joy into our lives and I couldn’t think of a better way to show my love for my eldest daughter than to gift her her first piece of heirloom jewelry from @tinytags Family is so important to me, and raising my girls is my greatest joy. When they look back on their childhood, I want them to remember the unique things that made our relationship special. The way I smell, a favorite blouse or a piece of jewelry I always wore that they adore. One thing I didn’t grow up with but always admired, was hearing my friends talk about the special jewelry they received in stand out moments of their life. Whether it was made specifically for them or passed down from the generations, the stories behind those pieces carried history, intention and love. As I start new traditions in my family, jewelry is a beautiful way to chronicle our stories and our history, and I’m so thankful that @tinytags makes it easy and affordable to create long lasting special pieces that tell our story. Giving Wisdom this custom necklace with her name on the front and her birth scripture on the back “James 1:5” was a memory I will never forget and maybe she’ll pass it on to her own daughter or granddaughter one day.

Had the most gorgeous time with my girl @vanessaxcamille at the NEW Sézane pop-up store in @shopuvillage. 🇫🇷🍾💐🥐 It is absolutely stunning and the clothing is to die for. It’s definitely worth a visit if you love classic, minimalist Parisian style and its so so so chic. The @sezane pop up will be at U-Village, now through the end of the year, so grab your girlies and make a day of it.

The other night, on 9/11, I got to experience Renaissance in Vancouver, B.C. 🇨🇦 and I was in awe. I could barely speak as I took in that show & was overwhelmed by the presentation + if you’ve had a chance to see the show, you know what I mean.. that “after show” let down is real. I was talking to a friend about the musical giants we grew up listening to. In my house it was Patti Labelle, Gladys Knight, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Whitney Houston, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson - I knew their songs, their music and they were the soundtrack of my childhood but I never got to experience the awe that my family felt listening to them because I never got to see them live and experience a show. 𝘛𝘰𝘯𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵, 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘤𝘩𝘢𝘯𝘨𝘦𝘴 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘮𝘺 𝘨𝘪𝘳𝘭𝘴. I am so excited to give them the opportunity to see one of the greatest performers of our lifetime and to share the musical experience of a woman whose music has shaped and been the soundtrack of the last 27 years of my life. They know I love Beyoncé but tonight they’ll get to SEE why. The first show was for me, this next show is for us…. and OUR core memories and the day when they reflect on the songs we danced and screamed to in the living room when we were cleaning up, the soundtrack of some of the best family road trips we’ve ever had, or why everyone gets up and dances at the weddings to certain music from her collection, they’ll be able to say, “my mama loved her music, and she took us to a show and I understand why.” 𝗛𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗯𝗲𝗲𝗻 𝘁𝗼 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗥𝗲𝗻𝗮𝗶𝘀𝘀𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲?

It’s a Back To School haul, featuring all of our MUST-HAVE @aveenokids essentials. #sponsored With Back To School around the corner, we are gathering our fave products, and what we put on our skin is far more important than what we wear. As a mom, I love that Aveeno Kids is helping me to empower my kids as they begin to practice independence with products that are specific for their skin and its changing needs. We are absolutely loving the Aveeno Kids Curly ➿ Hair Shampoo, Conditioner, and Detangling Spray. The girls especially like the Aveeno Kids Sensitive Skin Face & Body Wash and Gel Cream and the autonomy their routines give them to “do it themselves.” I love that it is made with oat extract and shea butter, never drying their skin and keeping them moisturized for 24 hours. As kids change, so do their needs, and we love that @aveenokids is with us in every stage and phase. 😍 𝗬𝗼𝘂 𝗰𝗮𝗻 𝘀𝗵𝗼𝗽 𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝗼𝗳 𝗖𝗼𝘂𝗿𝗮𝗴𝗲’𝘀 𝗳𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗱𝘂𝗰𝘁𝘀 𝗼𝘃𝗲𝗿 𝗼𝗻 𝗔𝗺𝗮𝘇𝗼𝗻 𝗻𝗼𝘄! #AveenoPartner
I recently decided it was time to get more serious about our home security, so I headed into @costco to check out the @ring Doorbell Plus with the Indoor Cam and 8-Piece Security Kit. #ad I love how @ring is a whole home security system and that it gives me peace of mind and visibility to what is happening at home, even when I am away. The kit was so easy to set up and install, and I particularly love that the Motion Detector and the Contact Sensors allow me to be notified when something is going on. The indoor camera allows me to keep an eye on my home when I’m away or busy working from rooms in my home that aren’t easily visible, and the video doorbell has been so great and helpful for notifying me of guest arrivals or allowing me to see when I get a package. The subscription (sold separately) makes it easy for me to pick and choose the features that are important to me and to set up a home security system custom to my needs. If you are looking to set up your own home security system be sure to head on over to Costco and pick up a Ring Security System because it is amazing! 𝗗𝗼 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝗮 𝘀𝗲𝗰𝘂𝗿𝗶𝘁𝘆 𝘀𝘆𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗺 𝗶𝗻 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗵𝗼𝗺𝗲?

One of my favorite core memories of summer this year, was when my cousin Jacques and his partner, Kaitlyn came to Seattle to visit for the first time and to meet my family. On his bucket list, was to go whale watching and to see orca whales in their natural habitat. I have lived here my whole life and I’ve never gone whale 🐳 watching or been to the San Juan Islands. #NotSponsored We booked a half day trip with @pugetsoundexpress who guarantees that you will see whales, and the rest was history. As we boarded the ferry ⛴️, I asked the team specifically about orcas and the team member said we’d see whales but she could not guarantee orcas… I quickly looked at Jacques and said, “we’re gonna see orcas,” 😏 and not only did we see orcas we saw a super pod of 5 families, 17 orcas total, including the newest babe orca recently born. ✨ It was such an emotional experience that I will never forget and such a special memory to have on the first day of meeting my family. If you want to go whale watching too, I highly recommended @pugetsoundexpress They run tours daily and they have a variety to choose from, from half-day tours to 3-day excursions with departures from Seattle/Edmonds, Port Townsend, and Port Angeles and I learned so much about whales and the unique landscape of the PNW.

First Day of School but make it @howard1867 ♥️💙🦬 Yesterday school started here in Tacoma, but we were still on the road, hanging out on the East Coast, so instead of porch pictures of my newly 6th grade Wisdom and my little pre-K cutie Courage, we packed up the car and took a field trip over to Howard University. 🏫 It was incredible walking the yard yesterday and seeing the fashions, the Divine 9 trees, the buildings named after our heroes and learning the history of one of the greatest HBCUs in the country. 👩🏾🏫 When I was in high school, it was my dream to go to Howard, but I didn’t have the support, so I couldn’t make it happen, so it was so special to get a tour of the campus with our 2, 4 and 11 year-old daughters and plant the seed for their possible futures. Yesterday was a reminder of why our family is making this big move to try an alternative approach to education, going virtual, so that when opportunity strikes we are ready and so that our girls can learn through those opportunities, through travel and in ways that make the most sense for them. So a little first day picture of my possible future Bison in another 20 years 😂😂 (Wisdom was TOO cool and hot for a picture) and a family first day of school picture, because we are ALL in, together, as we are with all things we do.

Our family recently escaped the hustle and bustle of the city to get outside OUTSIDE 😂 and stay in our very first river home for a few days and we absolutely loved it. It was the perfect backdrop to unplug and unwind, and reconnect and get to know each other, plus the environment was gorgeous and the perfect opportunity to explore and enjoy the beauty of our unique PNW landscape. We hiked, skipped rocks in the river, watched movies, played in the hot tub and spent so much uninterrupted time getting to know our family.
