Why we love teaching kids photography… AND a huge announcement at the end!

“The camera is an insturment that teaches people how to see with our a camera.” – Dorthea Lange Kids + Photography… it’s a combination I can’t ever get enough of! Kim and I have talked about writing a kids photography book for years! There’s just not a lot out there, and we have so much to say we can’t possibly cover it in a 2 hour class. So, why? Why bother handing a camera to a child? Why sign them up for a photography class? There are several...
Crown Him With Many Crowns

Crown Him With Many Crowns

Lately I’ve been using a Hymnal during my devotions… it’s funny and super ironic because I completely rejected hymns for so long, especially as a rebellious teen… they were “old and outdated” I’m a modern gal and I rolled my eyes at Hymns, “Like, why do we have to sing such old songs?? My parents are like, sooo uncool, like, there are so many new songs.. the old ones are so boring and like hundreds of years old..” (sheesh I was dumb, and I...
2018 here we come!

2018 here we come!

The kids are back in school today, so I FINALLY had time to edit photos we took over Christmas break…. Then the school nurse called, and I had to pick up a boy with a tummy ache. Sigh…. that’s how it goes huh? 🙂 I wouldn’t trade it, sick days and all. I still managed to get a little bit of editing in while he rested. Over Christmas break I scheduled a couple of sessions on one day so Kim and I wouldn’t have to leave our houses more then once! (good thing because...
The Creative Process

The Creative Process

I like to create scenes and I like to take pictures of objects. I find it really relaxing since nothing moves (usually) and I have to time think through what I want to really create. Today was a day where I had some time to get creative and I felt inspired by a new record cover I recently got. I love the soft colors and the vintage vibe. But what was I going to do with it? I started by just laying it down and shooting it from above. I pulled the actual record out a bit just so it was obvious...
Miss Ava {her first year video}

Miss Ava {her first year video}

Ahhhh. Another first year baby done. We are always so excited to see them grow up, but when we go back and look at them as a tiny baby it pulls at our heart strings. Why do they have to get so big so quickly? We love when the whole family comes to every session during the first year because we adore seeing the whole family in the video. Watching Miss Ava grow up in her mom’s, dad’s, and big sister’s arms is totally sweet. I can’t get over how adorable she is with her...
Tea {Gratitude Project}

Tea {Gratitude Project}

The gratitude project is coming along and we are already in the second week of November!!  It will be new  years before we know it. I am grateful for Tea That sounds really “surfacey”… (I know… that isn’t a word), but is sure doesn’t should very deep. Tea. Here is what it means to me. Tea relaxes me and brings me peace. I often drink it first thing in the morning and then last thing at night (even black tea, which can’t be great for me.)  As I hold the...
