Saying Goodbye

When Mike and I first started dating, he used to make fun of me for how AWFUL I was at saying goodbye. Nothing has changed. He doesn’t make fun of me anymore, but I am still the worst goodbye-er EVER. I don’t know when to end a conversation or what to say to bring it […]

Selfies

These are officially my first self portraits using my new studio lighting and backdrop! I hung some Christmas lights in the background to get the playful bokeh. I’m so vain. Don’t you love my scarf? It’s 100% cashmere and ridiculously soft. *SPOILER ALERT* I got my mom a pink one for Christmas and never sent […]

Christmas Eve

I’m sorry if my post yesterday dragged you down. It was something I needed to write…to feel…to process. It was really an amazing sight to see – thousands of people drawn together over something so sad. But today is not about that, as all things come and go. I am trying to be happy. Saturday […]

Officer Scotty Richardson

Christmas To-Do List

I hope Santa is good to you this year, and that all your wishes (materialistic or not) come true. Everyone deserves to be happy. I took those pictures with my new fixed width lens from my Daddy. It might be my new favorite, although I’m still getting used to the way it focuses. I love […]

A Special Introduction

Hey, remember me? I used to blog here. Mike and I disappeared into a sad and lonely world called “our internet was broken for a week.” I am so glad to be back! While I was gone, we officially added a new member to the family. Mike surprised me with the prettiest little kitten as an […]

Miss Peyton turns 1

Baby Dragon’s birthday is coming up, so Renee asked me to take her 1 year portraits last weekend. We had a pretty solid game plan as far as what style photos she wanted, and even some specific staging ideas. Yea…that worked out. Peyton had other plans – and even though she spent the majority of […]
