As a wedding photographer, I need to cherish the down time. I like to keep busy, so sometimes it’s difficult for me to sit still. By this time in the year, I start to get antsy.
However, spending time with my children is one of my favorite things to do in the world. I love them dearly, and cannot believe how fast they are growing up. It kills me! I enjoy each stage, but sometimes I just want to freeze them in time.
This March break was fantastic! We had some fun, did some crafts, did some baking and spent a little time just being lazy. I love my girls. They are creative, beautiful, and special creatures.
I’m glad I captured this moment forever.

It’s been a big week for me. First, I got my hand delivered, letter pressed, beautiful, business cards with my new logo. Designed by the awesome Natalie Core and printed by the creative Nicole at Verity Ink.
I’ve been obsessed with business cards for a while, and this one has been in the making (in my mind) for a couple of years. After seeing my new logo by Natalie, I knew this card was going to be it. Nicole was so amazing and made all the rest happen. I love, love, love them! I couldn’t be happier. The way they look and feel is the perfect way to express what me and my wedding photography is all about.
Okay, enough about the cards! Second, I bought a new lens this week. After being a professional photographer for 11 years, only over the last few years have I realized just how important the lenses I invest in really are to my wedding photography. I’m a simple girl. I like to keep things uncomplicated with my photography. Last year I upgraded my camera to a full frame, therefore, none of my lenses worked on my camera anymore. Last year I invested in one, very awesome lens, and borrowed a few from friends here and there. With the awesome camera and 2 beautiful lenses, I’m finally feeling like I can translate the creativity in my mind to my medium.
Here are the first subjects with my new lens.
