Springtime Micale Lynn Skates Shoot!

I've gotten to shoot for Micale Lynn a few times now and this was by far my most favorite one - the theme we did was right up my alley and I even got to be in the photos! So, Jon definitely did most of the work with this one ūüėČ Thuy sent me some super cute Inspo pictures of a shoot from aerie and a couple others that was just cheery and colorful and spring feeling so I bought a pink background I've been wanting for awhile! We used these converse, these skates, Aja and I both wore denim

We bought a house! –

Surprise! Trust me, it's a surprise to us to haha! We weren't planning on buying a house for a few years, but our dream home basically fell into our lap by chance a month ago! We had just decided that in a couple years we would probably hire an architect to design a custom home, because we couldn't find anything that we liked. Our tastes are pretty modern, and we're both super picky and definitely wanted our own things! One day I found a plot of land that I liked, potentially overlooking the river which was a request of Jon's

l o v e your body

I am probably like the least qualified person in the entire world to talk about loving your body. I have had some times where I really actually loathe my body, what it looks like and even other parts of myself, which I'm pretty ashamed of. It's taken me awhile to even realize how harmful just those thoughts are. Growing up I hated my ears, my stomach, my nose, my stomach, hands, at some point I've disliked almost every part of myself. I was always a kid who leaned toward the self-conscious side and didn't stay involved in athletics because of

Instead of asking someone “is there anything I can do for you?” Do this

After my dad passed, I heard "let me know if there's anything I can do for you" at least 8-10 times a day, which just absolutely shows what supportive friends and family I have, and I could tell how much people genuinely wanted to do something but most times I just had no idea what I needed or when or what someone could possibly do to help. After losing someone extremely unexpectedly, at least so close to you, I think that your brain is seriously just so overloaded with trying to process what happened, why, what you need to get

What daily life looks and feels like 2 weeks after losing a parent to now

The first few days after we lost Dad, I got to reschedule all of my shoots other than a wedding I had, but now that everything is kind of getting back to normal it's proven to be just as difficult to go through the day, just in a different type of way. At first grief felt like an open wound that was just constantly painful and tearing and impossible to work through. Now, a few weeks through, it feels like the wound has been trying and trying to heal but every few hours the little scar tissue it's form is

Paperbag Waist Pants & Ruffle Bodysuit

Being petite, (5'1) I'm super particular about waist lengths and what types of clothes I wear. I've been wanting to try the paperbag waist trend, and these pants from Black Sheep Boutique are the first that I've gotten to try and I love them!!

Talimena Drive 2018

Last fall Maisie, Jon & I packed up Bert, our beloved RV for a trip to Talimena drive during peak leaf week. We stayed at the Talimena state park and actually were surprised to see it extremely booked out! The best spots had been booked for months, so hopefully this year we will plan ahead. We drove out on an extremely foggy day which I don't recommend if you're a scaredy cat like me! Some turns were kind of scary and you had to go extremely slow, especially if you're driving like Bert. But I would also looove to be

Stuff Jon Says

One of my favorite things about Jon is his sense of humor. He's always happy, finds the humor in EVERY situation, and the best part, his wit. Enjoy. "I love cheese. If I had a cheese store it'd be called Parmejon." Me-"oooooh, Mcdonalds." Jon-"I know... me too." "I have 612 calories left for the day... let me see if I can put in one Cheeto . Yeah... I can. It's verified." "If I had a pizza place to compete with Little Caesars Hot n' Ready it would be called Hastey n' Tastey." "You look like a sheep that's been to prison . You've been
