For the purposes of this blog, I’m a wedding photographer. That’s not exactly an essential service in the current climate. So, what to post about right now? Here’s my truth, and the first dose of positivity and perspective until it seems like the right time to tilt back towards weddings, photography and love stories.

She’s my Mini because she looks just like me. She acts a lot like me too. I get dejàvu sometimes watching her – and flashback to a memory of my own childhood. Something I said or did, playing out in front of me again, with a different soul.  At other times I’m struck by how […]

It was eighty degrees in mid-May, and you were standing at the bottom of a staircase.  I was at the top, negotiating with our planner that- no, in fact, our wedding doesn’t start in 30 minutes.  It starts now.  I was anxious.  I just wanted to get down those stairs and next to you. Seven […]

It’s been a long time since I’ve just chatted on here.  Let’s catchup! — What a crazy winter it has been.  Mother Nature has lost her ever-loving mind and given us everything from 70 degrees to icy and below freezing, often in the same week.  While few would complain about a mild winter – I […]

I used to write all about our personal lives here on the blog.  Then one day in 2012 everything changed, and much of our real life wasn’t something I wanted to write about.  I wanted, I needed, to focus on everything else.  So there was less day-to-day randomness on the blog, and more curated content.

Dear Hubby, Have I told you today how lucky I am to be in love with you? Because I am.  I’ve been so crazy lucky for eight years, and the seven years before that.  Those first seven seemed to crawl by at times – it was a holding pattern to me – just waiting for this […]

Waylynn Day October 29, 2014 6 lbs 4 oz 21 inches The most common question I get when people learn we have a new baby is “What is it like having two kids?”.  Well, she’s five months old already and I’m just now getting to blogging about her arrival.  I think that fact might just […]

It’s been awhile dear blog! —- Despite a brief snowfall last week, now it is sunny, a tad warm, and Baby Girl and I even saw tulips finally popping up in the yard yesterday!  Spring may actually be here. — Things have been looking up around here lately, and with just six weeks to go […]

I’ve always felt that I led a fairly charmed childhood/adolesence.  I grew up without much of the usual gender bias placed on kids.  I can recall thinking that anything, anything was possible if I worked hard enough.  I didn’t think  “anything was possible even though I was a girl”.  The girl part was never part […]
