Extreme bathroom envy is a job hazard after spending Saturday morning with @eliseforness . Her designs are incredible!
I’m sure you’ve heard of the word “minis” from photographers before. But what does that mean? And is it for you? Check out my latest blog post to hear all the pros and cons of Mini Sessions.

Home again and I’m so thankful to be back with my kiddos! Today I broke out the calendar to start organizing my schedule for fall (which seems crazy I know!) I’m so excited to get the opportunity to photograph another set of twins in September! In the last 5 years I’ve gotten to photograph 3 sets of twins, so these ladies will be my 4th. This photo is of my own niece and nephew, they are sandwiched between an older and younger sibling, but we are always sure to get a twin shot and they never have to be instructed on posing. They nail the hug shot and dancing shot almost every year! . . . Here are some updates for the schedule this year: I’ve only got 3 newborn spots open for the rest of 2019. I’ve already started booking some family sessions for fall, I always try to squeeze everyone in, but the earlier you contact me the more likely you can have a preferred date. I do plan on offering a day for minis (will be 20 minutes at a chosen location). I’d love some feedback on a preferred minis date! Do you prefer October or November for minis? Would September be too early? Let me know your thoughts! . . .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Also I plan on coming to Dublin one weekend as well. If my Dublin friends have any date requests let me know! I will try to plan around the majority. (P.S. Dublin friends, would you prefer normal sessions or Minis?)
I never thought I was afraid of heights. Turns out I’m not afraid of heights when there is a large glass wall or a tall, thick, railing in between me and great depths. However when I’m standing near a vast void, I feel like anything I’m holding is going to jump out of my hands and I’m going to spontaneously flip forward and plummet to the bottom. So it turns out that I am afraid of heights after all 🤷♀️. On another note, I also think I have anxiety for other people’s children. Is this just me? Yesterday as we walked the Hoover Dam and then peered over into the Grand Canyon (only in the spots with a secure railing of course) I saw people with young children running and skipping everywhere. It was killing me inside. I don’t think I could handle bringing my kids here, at least not until they are either teenagers or until someone invents a tether system that I can strap them to my waist and then myself to a railing. I may get a few strange looks. But I also spent the ride home googling how many people have fallen from the rim of the Grand Canyon and I feel even more confident in my thought process 😂. I think the coolest part of this trip has been seeing how different the environment is here. Every day there have been multiple views that make you just stop and stare in silence. Alex and I also realized we’ve forgotten so much of what we’ve learned in school and spent a lot of time googling all the things. But I gotta tell you, amazing as it is, earth tones just aren’t my thing 😉. I’m looking forward to squeezing my babies tomorrow!
There is something so humbling and awe inspiring about the horizons here. Today we had a blast exploring. For any of you who know Alex (especially in the high school and college years) you can probably guess what he planned for us today 😂. Remember his Wrangler days, you know the days when you could barely recognize the fact that his creation was once just a normal Jeep 😂? We rented an rzr and spent 6 hours off roading and exploring trails. He even let me drive...a little. We rode for hours going up and down crazy trails, hiking up a cliff to see a hidden cave where we had to (as the guys at the rental place so casually put it) “just shimmy” over a rock face to get in. We saw ancient ruins from the 1100’s and got red dirt and dust in every crevice. Before this the farthest west I’d ever been was Louisiana. I’m so thankful to have a few days to getaway and have new experiences. (P.S. this was taken by Alex at the Sedona Airport Overlook. It’s a very popular place to watch the sunset, while it looks like we’ve got the place to ourselves, swipe over to see an iPhone shot of reality!)
There’s nothing like waiting around in airports to get you to pour out your heart in a new blog post! It’s been on my mind lately to share some of my personal story about the birth of my first baby and how it’s forever changed me and my perspective of new moms. I hope it can bring someone else comfort and let you know it’s never all perfect!
