What an exciting time!

I talk allllll the time about my photography bucket list. I’m wondering if those around me are starting to get sick of it but here comes one more! I have been longing to do a Bishop’s Garden Engagement Session. The National Cathedral in DC is one of those majestic places that takes your breath away […]

A big trend these days is the one year cake smash photo session. Picture this: you’ve spent all year making decisions about the best way to teach your baby about food. The first six months were all about milk: whether you breast or bottle fed, the goal was to nourish your baby enough so that […]

Some of you know me and many of you don’t. Those of you who do know me probably know that homeschooling is something that caught my interest early on in my motherhood journey. It was always a topic that intrigued me but very definitely was not anything I ever had aspirations to do. I know […]
