Firstly, I’m wife. Wife to Joshua, whose one heck of a husband. He takes this dramatic, challenging woman and mushes me into a happy woman. We were high school sweethearts, went to prom together, and got engaged in 2014 in the middle of a sunflower field. I stalked him in my older sister’s yearbooks before he even knew I existed, but we will save that story for another day. Secondly, I’m Mom. Mom to Hazel, a little spitfire who will melt your heart with a smile. She makes me a cuddly human, something I really wasn’t, until becoming a mom. Truth is, I have a lot of love to give, I just don’t always do it by cuddling. We listen to country music, and our favorite artist is Garth Brooks (yay for 90’s country!) We got married on October 24, 2015. We have built a life that we never thought we could, and it just keeps getting better. We are welcoming a new little life in September 2019, and I can not wait to see who this baby girl turns out to be! I love bringing my people on our journey while they bring me on theirs. When I am not Wife + Mom, I’m Photographer. I love intimate things like couples, and parenthood. I got into photography because I loved getting photos of my husband and I taken, and felt like I wanted to make people love this authentic way of expression and freezing those moments just as much as I do. I recently got into birth photography, and felt that I was called to do this more than anything in the photography industry. Something about bringing life into the world, and providing tangible items from that experience for families to keep as memories makes me so happy. I will talk your ear off, and probably talk about my kid the whole time we are together, but I am just proud of the empire I’ve built. But, I want to hear about your empire.
