Make yourself at home & get a taste of all the adventure

Last week I shared about planning for maternity leave (or a sabbatical) as a creative entrepreneur. The post featured 11 things I did in advance to prepare to take a 3-4 month maternity leave with my first baby boy (who could be here any day now!). But one of the key elements to that planning was […]

I’ve long dreamed about the day I’d been putting these maternity leave plans into action. In fact, during our season of infertility & waiting for a sweet babe, I often would reference extra work I was doing & dollars earned as being a “nest.” I’d stock pile a bit for the hope that one day […]

There are two #goals that seem to be floating around in the creative industry. The coveted “6-figure business” status (and lately, multi-6-figure business, it seems) and to be known as an educator & speaker.

There are a lot of phrases about mothers. First comes to mind: “If mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy…” Fortunately, I have a pretty awesome mama, which led to a pretty happy household growing up. I still to this day don’t quite know how the heck she managed it all… and as I get closer […]

This has been a much requested story to share. And while I’ve shared bits and pieces here and there in this little digital world, I’ve never shared it all in one place or the specifics… so today, I’m grateful/nervous to share the story of our journey to Baby C!

I absolutely love photographing rehearsal dinners. There is something so special about the excitement and anticipation in the air preparing for the next day. Plus, it is an evening where all of the nearest and dearest to the couple come together to share memories from years past. I LOVE that I get to learn about […]

When we moved to Augusta, GA a little over 4 years ago, I wasn’t quite sure what this season of life would look like… and to be honest, I was nervous. I moved to a new city where I knew very few people, my husband would be working ~80 hours a week, and I decided […]
