Is there anything better than cracking open the spine of a big, beautiful book? It’s a feeling and sound that I absolutely love. We live in this digital world where so much of what we read and see is pixels on screens, so there’s something to be said for tangible ink on paper. The smell. […]

It’s only November, but as there’s now snow on the ground and the fall rush is over, it’s actually feeling much like January.  I’m feeling the need to evaluate, plan for the future and try new things. I have a ton of ideas in the works for 2020 (dare I say too many things? Probably!) […]

That was the question I asked myself. I’ve done projects in the past where I try to find a tiny slice of beauty during the pre-dinner hour. But in the morning? Before school? That’s the definition of crazy around our house. I’m still drinking coffee. The kids can take a while waking up. The light […]

“How long will it take you to edit this?” It’s a pretty common question that I get, but….the answer isn’t an easy one. It isn’t easy because every session really is different, but also because, if we’re talking about what goes into a session, it’s so much more than editing. So! I thought it might […]

Pumpkin spice lattes are available, mornings are crisp and school is back in (you’d better bet I partied a bit!). You know what’s coming, right?

If there’s one thing that I am firmly against in life, it’s saying “CHEESE”.  9 times out 10, cheese results in unnatural, forced smiles and just general silliness that isn’t what I’m after.  So, what’s a mama to do, then? When you really want a photo of your kid but you’re getting that weird-serial-stalker face […]

There’s a question that comes up in almost every session I do and it goes something along the lines of, “So, how much do you really edit? Can you take this out or that out?” The thing is…. There’s no straight answer to this question.  Sometimes I edit an image heavily and it takes working […]
