Instagram at a Glance – April

I’m way late sharing our April Instagram round-up, but better late than never. April was a great month with big changes, the biggest being that I went from brunette to blond! I had decided that if I was going for change, I was going for change! And I have to say, I’m still really loving it! […]

When I tell the story, even I can’t quite remember how I did it. I started my business with a 3 year old, a 2 year old, and a 4 month old. Who does that?? My hormones must have still been really off to have thought that was a good plan.  But there I was wanting something of my own. […]

7 Years Later – Growing my Babies & Business Together

May 11, 2016

Sitting in the corner of our little bedroom in our little duplex, I typed my very first post. I had started my photography business about a year prior and finding resources and information was nothing like it is today!  Pinterest didn’t exist, and blogs were not plentiful. I would scour and scour, and when I found something that […]

10 things I wish I’d known when I started my business

May 9, 2016

  January was a big month! There’s of course the whole New Year Resolution thing, getting back into the swing of things after taking most of December off, and then we had our first open enrollment for 2016 with The Thriving Photographer™. Not gonna lie… Looking forward to a slightly slower February. How about you? […]

Instagram at a Glance – January

February 4, 2016

  December is a crazy month for all of us. For me, I seem to always get hung up between reminiscing over the previous year (and if I’m being totally honest – picking at myself for what I should have done better) and getting excited over the new year, the new start, and the new adventures […]

Instagram at a Glance – December

January 5, 2016

This year Taylor got the idea that he really wanted to host a New Year’s Eve Party, but not just any NYE shindig. He wanted Black Tie, disco balls, and a champagne fountain (only in our case sparkling cider). Now that the final countdown is on to bring our party to fruition, I thought it would […]

Black Tie New Years Eve Party Planning

December 29, 2015

I’ve been so inspired by all the holiday home tours! Today I’m really excited to share my own little holiday tour, so I’m going to share my office with you. I hope you enjoy!! From the day I hung my faux deer, I imagined just how festive he would look for Christmas. Now I’ll admit that these […]

My Home Office Holiday Tour

December 16, 2015

I can’t believe all of the comments and amazing feedback that I received over my office! In fact, it’s been over a year since I revealed my office makeover, and I still get weekly emails and comments asking about how I created my L-shape desk configuration. So today I’m sharing some additional behind the scenes pics of my desk + you’ll find […]

The “L Shape” Desk Hack from Ikea

November 28, 2015

I’m not usually one for the mushy online sentiments. But last weekend it hit me. I didn’t believe love exhausted when I was young. Not real, true, enduring love. I really thought it didn’t exist. And just in case you believe that too. Just in case you are afraid that it can’t be found because […]

True Love Does Still Exist

November 10, 2015

What a great month! A group of fabulous friends turned running into an amazing weekend.  You might ask, “How is that even possible?”  Well you rent a big house in an adorable Bavarian town and fit 13 friends inside to run a 1/2 marathon together! Yep, that means that I completed my first 1/2 marathon! […]
