New Beginnings

I have been photographing weddings for 10 years… It is an absolute dream job! I find so much joy in being able to document love stories. I have met some incredible people over the last decade and wouldn’t change a thing! However, this past year when I became a mom my focus for my photography shifted a bit. [Brides have nothing to worry about I will continue to photograph weddings]. This year was a full of tremendous joy and exhausting struggle. Becoming a mom has been the greatest adventure I have ever been apart of and I love every single minute of it (even the tough ones!). Adeline has opened my eyes to a whole new part of myself and just makes me giggle all the time. I could seriously snuggle her all day long… If she would let me.. Which she does not! Continue reading

Creating Tribes

A tribe is defined as :

a social division in a traditional society consisting of families or communities linked by social, economic, religious, or blood ties, with a common culture and dialect, typically having a recognized leader.

I have a new group of mama friends and we call ourselves the MMC Tribe. We are all around the same age, are what you might call crunchy moms, and have bonded over the new tiny humans that we have all recently created! Creating connections with other human beings is one of the greatest things we will do in this life. To bond with like-minded individuals is simply amazing. A true blessing in a world of chaos.

The Wonderful World of Food

Adeline turned 6 months on Saturday! Oh my! Here I am crying again! This whole being a mom thing has turned me into quite a hot mess! Anyways, we planned to introduce her to the wonderful world of food once she turned 6 months old and I have been counting down the days! I had done a tone of research and asked other mamas and decided that we would wait until 6 months for a number of reasons and we have decided to do a modified form of Baby Led Weaning. Adeline had been showing signs of being interested in food for a few weeks… She would quite literally pull my plate of food towards herself while sitting on my lap during mealtimes! It is fun to watch her be so interested in something. Hey eyes get so wide! If only we could know what babies think! Continue reading

How can we treasure what truly matters?

The world we live in is crumbling down around us! It has been one tragedy after another it seems lately. I know that has a lot to do with social media as it is more in our faces and constantly being streamed in our news feeds, but it doesn’t make it any less true. Instead of banning together we are tearing each other apart. Innocent people are being killed, those responsible for keeping us safe are being gunned down in the streets, a child dies at Disney World… “The happiest place on earth”. My heart breaks for the world. Even more so my heart breaks for lack of community I have witnessed in these past weeks. When we are going through hard times having others there to support us and show empathy can make all the difference. This seems to be lacking in today’s culture. We’ve grown accustomed to sitting behind a computer screen spewing out our opinions and feelings. With little to no thought of how they might effect another. People say the cruelest of things on social media. Things I’m sure they would never be so quick to say to anothers face. Continue reading

A magical moment during story time

I love books. Everything about them. I love their covers, binding, and the enchanting words within… Story time is one of my very favorite things! My husband would tell you I collect books and I guess that’s true. I have more books than there is space for in our little two bedroom condo, but I just can’t seem to help myself. I do have a bad habit of starting books and getting distracted with another book and then another and another. I have many books with bookmarks in them on my shelves, but I fine with that! There are many strange things that I could be collecting so I think having an abundance of the written word is just fine! Continue reading

Becoming Mom to sweet baby Adeline

I always knew I wanted to be a mom… Just ask Ryan and he will tell you I talked about it often! I have always enjoyed taking care of babies/kids and did a ton of babysitting throughout the years and I just knew one day I wanted to be a mama. What I did not know or couldn’t possibly fathom is how much I would love this precious little girl… I imagined what it would be like, but until she was born I had NO idea what it would feel like. She brings me so much joy… When I catch her gaze and she smiles at me, my heart melts!! It’s my favorite thing and I could just stare and smile with her forever. Continue reading
