I'm a wife to a firefighter, and mama of a little girl and boy here in Plain City, Ohio. I love Jesus and my family, and on a daily basis you can find me hanging with my kiddos, tending to my garden, growing cut flowers (+selling them out on my roadside flower stand), admiring dreamy quilts and cottage gardens on Pinterest (seriously, it's become an obsession as of late!!!), munching on a sweet snack (I REALLY have a sweets problem lol), and doing all the beautifully mundane things that come along with staying home and raising babies.
What started out as a hobby, taking daily photos of my sweet babes, has turned into so much more! Just a few short years ago I was working full time as a fifth grade teacher, coming home to my husband and little guy wishing I could just stay home with them all day and preserve those fleeting, precious moments. Fast forward to now, and I'm truly living my dream getting to do exactly that (and with two kiddos now!) I am so thankful God has lead me here.
I love capturing moments that are meant to be captured, but often aren't. Whether you're welcoming a precious new babe earthside or doing a sink full of dishes as kiddo chaos ensues around you, I want to preserve this season for you. If I've learned anything as a mama, it's that...
1. there's true magic to be found in the mundane +
2. time is a thief!
I cherish photos more and more now—especially as a mama. We spend money on SO many things that fade and lose their value with time: toys, clothes, shoes, cars...the list goes on. Why not invest our time and money into things that truly matter, like our family and our relationships?! Getting photos done--whether it be engagement photos, family photos, photos just because, you name it--preserves precious moments in time...ones you will never ever get back. The missing teeth, silly smiles, a fresh new baby, an aging grandparent. A lot can change in a year and I will always cherish my photos that I have...to look back on, tell stories about, and show to my babies who may not remember what all went on when they were younger, or a family member who is no longer with us. Images help to tell the stories of our life long after those fleeting moments are gone. Photos are so much more important than we may realize and I would be honored to capture these special moments in time for you!
