Capturing Your Family Just As They Are

I love documentary photography.  What is that exactly?  Documentary photography is simply capturing the moment just as it is.  There is no direction being given from the photographer, nothing id cleaned up around the house on purpose, the family doesn't have color coordinated clothing on.  It's documenting your life exactly how it really is.

My baby girl, first born, the one who made me a Mama-just turned four.  Four wasn’t a difficult birthday for me at all.  I was and still am so happy to see her thriving and becoming her own person.  But let’s go back about four and a half years to the time we were about to find out if our first baby was a boy or a girl!

National Learn To Swim Day 2018

Who loves to swim?  Me too!  I hate to admit it, but I don't even actually know how to swim.  That's why it's so important for my own kiddos to learn to swim at a young age!  We have the kiddos in swim lessons but when you're on vacation or in your own pool it can be difficult when there's two super active kids and two tired parents, haha.

Binge-Worthy Netflix Shows

Every night once the kiddos are asleep and Scott is upstairs I tend to work on blogs or editing photos, etc.  I get the time all to myself to watch some of my favorite shows and they're all on Netflix because, let's face it, we're too lazy these days to get up and put movies in the DVD player!  Here are my favorites!

Handling Toddler Tantrums

Raise your hand if you’ve ever been around a TTT, a.k.a., toddler temper tantrum...? Anyone?

Staying at home with two toddlers everyday can be rough. One minute they adore each other and are cuddling, dancing, and giving kisses to each other and the next minute they’re hitting, screaming, and crying, running to me for comfort.
