This week I really experimented with all kinds of light sources as you can see. Lately, I am really drawn to the moodiness of an underexposed photograph, so limited lighting made perfect sense. I used computer monitors, flashlights, string lights, etc to light my subject. Very different for me, I had fun. However…I will say I am anxious for March to get here so I can play on the beach— natural light (aka sunshine!) in all of her glory.

I was featured here among a few creative favorites from around the world. The subject we were asked to contribute was on “in the dark.” A topic that is so much easier to gloss over, or bury. The problem with that is that is never really goes away, and “it” sits like a time bomb, waiting to go off. I wrote my piece awhile back, while working through some pain and disappointment. I love how there is always beauty in the rubble. The hard part is the sifting. The submissions are all so heart-felt. It’s a lengthy post, but so well worth your time. The authenticity was so refreshing and inspiring!  Go check it out, you won’t be disappointed.

A little note about this week– my heart does a big ole happy dance seeing Chase this week in photos. So often I find myself waiting for a moment when he’s not on his computer listening to music or watching YouTube, but this week I chose to embrace it. I’m so glad I did.

Off topic – I am crazy obsessed with podcasts. One that truly made me stop dead in my tracks was this one. Oh. My Gosh. It was like God himself spoke life into my heart.


I am booking now for spring sessions and still booking 2016 weddings. I would love to tell your story, your life is beautiful. Let me show you.
