ONE \\ It’s way too easy to burn rice. Especially when you think you’re being smart by cooking it ahead of time, then walk away to do “just a few minutes” of work. Fast forward half an hour later and the house smells like burnt rice, which happens to smell vaguely similar to burnt tortillas. […]

In every corner of the internet you’ll find some article along the lines of “Things Happy/Content/Peaceful/Whatever-Other-Adjective-You-Want-To-Be People Do” to remain happy, content, peaceful, etc. and on almost every one of those lists, you’ll find some form of reflection.

So I have a little confession to make. Sometime around mid-April, I sorta stopped my 365 Project. Honestly, I’m impressed I was able to keep it going that long.

This week feels like it dragged on and flew by all at once. I’m shooting an engagement session tomorrow at a picturesque lighthouse nearby and I’m super stoked. Sunday will be pretty low key with some quality family time before The Husband heads off to the office. Running your own law firm is no joke but […]

This kid. He gives me the hardest time when I want to take pictures. Looking away, running off, outright telling me, “No, Mama.” And then, one day, he totally surprises me. One day after nap, he refused to get out of his crib and actually said, “Picture?” (Well, it was more like “pic-tah” but I knew […]

Even though I originally learned photography on film oh-so-many years ago (over two decades!), I hadn’t actually shot anything on film in quite a while.
