I’m a professional brand photographer and social media strategist who posts and blogs about motherhood, travel, healthy living, marriage, and style. I love that my experience as a professional photographer allows me to create super high-quality work for the brands I partner with, and I love putting a creative spin on my influencer campaigns!

How to Entertain at Home and 10 Tips for Summertime Entertaining

Any time you open your home to friends, family, co-workers, neighbors etc., you are entertaining. To me, impromptu means any plan made day-of, with either a small window to pop into the store, and in more cases then not, no allotted store time. If you can get to the store before an impromptu hangout my favorite things to buy in the summer are the makings of a mezze platter or ingredients for build-your-own crostini. If you are not into a stock list, buy a non-perishable sharing snack every other time you shop (assuming you shop every week) like chips, jarred olives, crackers and cheeses that have long shelf lives.

Ready to meet another one of my very fave natural health products? I love everything I’ve ever tried from @native including their new toothpaste. I’m so glad they gifted me these goodies to try because they’re my new standbys for sure. Cheers to sipping wine and coffee without compromising clean white teeth! PS, have you tried charcoal toothpaste? It weirded me out at first, but I’m officially in love with this one, it seriously WORKS. Want to try it?

4 Instagram Management Apps I Can't Live Without

So, if I add a photo, I can click the arrow to have UNUM shift that photo into place, as if I’m adding more photos, so I can see what it’ll When you add a new photo and are in draft mode, Tailwind provides suggested hashtags, and counts down for you to track how many of the 30-allowed hashtags you’ve added. Once you’ve created a list of 30 hashtags, be sure to copy the whole list, then go into “saved hashtags,” add new list, name it and paste then save. : there is currently not an option to create a Tailwind account on their app, you have to go to their website and click “sign up with Instagram” to create an account.

Delighting > complaining. We’ve made some of our favorite family memories on days when others sat inside and begrudged the weather. Instead of wasting joy complaining, we say yes to adventures together. Yes to embracing every season. Yes to trying new things and getting out of our comfort zones and exploring. How do you squash the temptation to lean into negativity? . . . #mom_hub #momtog #thelifestylecollecive #treasured_childhood #choosejoy #shedelights #bedeeplyrooted #gritandvirtue #shereadstruth #wellwateredwoman #risenmotherhood #beating50percent #proverbs31 #proverbs31ministries #marriageadvice #marriagematters #goodnewsfeed #pursuewhatislovely #encouragementgallery #hikeitbaby #familytrails #outfam #raiseawildchild #shared_joy #tinybigadventure #kidswhoexplore #mytinymoments #mynameismama #rei1440project #sharetheeverymom

Blush Wedding Gown Perfection

However, after pouring over these dreamy bridal portraits, I’m no longer of the mind that white is the only way to go. If unexpected and unique is what you’re going for, try branching into the realm of colored ball gowns. One thing I love about it, is that there isn’t a skin color it wouldn’t look stunning on. The softness of blush looks dreamy on light tones, and pops on dark tones.

True or false: your health is > the pressure to perform. Do you recognize when you need to step away from your pursuit of perfection to take care of yourself? That’s what I did this week. Not sorry for being absent here, I needed a social media break to take care of my spirit and my family. Last week was the busiest week of my hubby’s work year. It always drains us both, and requires extra intention to be there for each other and be a good team. So Instagram took a back seat because my mind and my heart can’t keep all the plates spinning all the time. We made it, and I’m back and feeling refreshed and ready to show up for the rest of my people, but burn-out is real and if we ignore the red flags when we’re feeling weary, we’ll be no help to anyone. Ya feel me? I lost followers, engagement, website clicks... but my daughter had my attention, my marriage overcame some stress, and my mental health stayed stable, so I’m good with that balance. Do you need a break? Pay attention to what your heart needs and let go of that anxious voice telling you you have to perfectly achieve at all times, it’s not possible and it’s ok to refresh yourself at the cost of a few social media followers. . .

This Urban Family Photo Session Delivers Serious Candid Fun

I love shooting family photos, but in my mind, there’s nothing worse than stiffly posed, fake smile group photos. When I do a family session, I’m always looking for ways to make group photos happen in whimsical ways that feel true to that specific family’s personalities. Generally parents schedule a family session because they want updated portraits of their growing kiddos, and group photos through the years. That’s not real life, it doesn’t tell the family’s story, and it’s a sure fire way to make sure nobody has fun.

Where have these pacifiers been all my life?! @doddleandcompany created a paci that is its own case, and Rowan LOVES them.

So thankful for my ladies. It took two years in this city to find community with friends who feel like a part of me, and I’m so insanely grateful for these sister-friends that I get to have Galentine’s brunch with today. Let’s build each other up. Tag a couple of your ride or die gals and tell them one thing you love about them! . .
