Let's talk camping adventures as a family, motherhood, adoption, current inspiration and family portraits in 30A. 


Welcome to the blog! This is the place that I love to share recent camping trips with my family, thoughts on preserving our stories through portrait preservation and of course family photoshoots on our renowned 30A beaches. 




“There are two things in Autumn that particularly appeal to me. Sometimes there is a mild melancholy in the falling leaves, in the muted light, in the haziness of things, in the elegance of the slender tree trunks.” -Van Gogh 48 hours. Two plane tickets given to us. Any destination. And a babysitter. This was […]

Wow. Is 2014 really over already? It’s okay. I don’t mind! 😉 (But more about that in a second.) As I look back on the milestones passed and successes, it slows it down in comparison. 2014 was a year of development, firsts & amazing friendships. I felt like 2014 was a joyous balance on a […]

Today is a great day for a few reasons. One- As I am writing this, I am sitting on the porch looking out to the water and the weather feels wonderful outside! Two- A picnic with Cory is planned for tonight. And three- I received head shots from Jennifer Blair today that rocked my world. […]

Life is made up of the small things.  1. I believe simple is elegance and elegance is simple. 2. I love the sound of ceiling fans.  3. If I had a dream house or studio, it would be a beach cottage. 4. Film photography. 5. Natural light. 6. Less is more. Always. 7. Spring and […]

I was so frustrated at first. Why can’t my photos look the way I want them to? Why does everyone else seem to nail photos perfectly and I keep coming up with photos that only frustrate me. I tend to be insecure with my work. Will anyone else like this? Is this the right way […]

I love that when my head is spinning of creative ideas, dreams and things to do, I feel a soft tug of, “Me first.” I love that Matthew 6:33 tells me to seek Jesus first and all of these things will be given.  So, while my mind is overflowing with things to remember, I can […]

For the past two years I have fallen in love with the work of artists like Erich McVey, KT Merry, Jen Huang and Belle and Beau, just to name a few. No matter what I did, I could never get my digital images to have the same soft appeal, bokeh or vibrant colors as their images. I […]
