Make time

Make time

Make time to take pictures when family is visiting. My daddy was here at our house for the fist time in 12 years. We typically go and visit them when we go to Georgia. But we haven’t been home in two years. It was amazing having him here for a few days.  I made plans with my kids to take pictures with grandpa as a Christmas gift. We made an album for him. I can’t wait for him to get it!!!! My dad is a pretty funny guy. He is the owner of Eagle Ridge Buildings in North GA…so...

Makers gonna make!!

When we redesigned our studio Kim and I had the idea that this could be a place where we encouraged creativity. It’s a big room, not just for us to take pictures when we have sessions, but a place we can come together and make things. I’m a dreamer and I see so much possibility for community and fellowship while learning or practicing a new skill. I see generations  of women coming together and learning from each other. Sometimes I gotta quit dreaming, and start doing, so...

Deck the Halls {from the lodge}

Decorating for the holidays one of my favorite things. It doesn’t matter how old I get I love pulling out the ornaments and reliving the memories of all of our holiday treasures. We decorate the Sunday after Thanksgiving in our house. We used to wait until after my son’s birthday (Dec. 8th!) but he started to beg to “do the tree!” so we do it now before his birthday…December birthdays are tough!   We have to check the lights. Every year I swear they work when...

Magic

Photography for me is magical. It gives me a chance yes to stop time and hold a bit of my kid’s innocence forever, but more than that it helps me to find ways to make ordinary moments magical. One may have looked in the room and said…”wow..you should dust!” but it looked like pure magic to me. The way the light hit every bit of dust that morning. Charles was getting ready to head outside (dressed way too warmly by the way) and just happen to be in the room when all of...

Gratitude Project {Baking with my kids}

We are already over half way through November and baking is something we are doing more and more often. As the weather turns cooler and Thanksgiving is just around the corner we are trying out new recipes. Don’t miss the recipe below. I am grateful for baking with my kids Time in the kitchen with my kids is a family pastime. We bake all sorts of things, mainly because I like baking much better than cooking. My son is mastering the art of pies and my oldest daughter is working on creating...
Gratitude Project {Seasons}

Gratitude Project {Seasons}

I am bless by our gratitude project daily. I hope you are too. If you want to jump in it is never too late! I am blessed by seasons I live in the woods so often we walk around and explore throughout the year. We are also blessed to live in an area of the country where we have four distinct seasons (although I would argue Fall is never long enough!) There is always something coming or going in nature and what amazes me is how amazingly beautiful nature is when it is just peaking out from the...
