Dear Baby Girl, what started out as an idea has now become a tradition six years in the making. I’m so grateful that you still let me take pictures of you in my wedding dress, even though I know it’s not your favorite thing because you hate the big clips that hold the dress tight […]

Dear Baby Girl, I’m pretty sure I could just write, “It’s 2020” and that would be all I need in this letter, but you deserve more. This year wasn’t the year I expected (or anyone expected for that matter), it brought so many uncertainties, but it also brought so many joys. One of the biggest […]

Dear Baby Girl, I can’t believe another year has gone by that I’ve photographed you in my wedding dress.  Some days seemed long, never ending, and other days seemed to fly by and I’m afraid that my memory will cease to remember the simple details of our days together. You know…the mundane parts of our […]

Dear Baby Girl, today I photographed you in my wedding dress.  You looked so sweet and innocent.  I’d like to take your picture in my wedding dress every year….as long as you let me…and as long as I remember.  Your face in a few of these images reminded me of how I was when I […]

 My daughter had a pretty “sweet” Halloween costume last year as a Starbucks Latte, so I thought it was going to be hard to beat….until I decided that she would be pretty stinkin cute as the Queen of Hearts. All I had to do was show my oh so talented mom a picture of a […]

 Growing older is inevitable, and as I age, the people dear to me age….and with age,  it’s only a matter of time until there is change…..and I’m not one for change. This past summer, my grandparent’s decided it was time for them to sell their home (the place where I spent so many nights running, […]

Last summer my babysitter Desi sent me a picture from Pinterest and said my daughter, Adley,  JUST HAD to be a Starbucks coffee for Halloween.  Literally, just two nights ago, my super uber duper talented mom (LINDA!!) put this adorable costume together for my little girl! (I did the Starbucks logos…I wasn’t completely useless!) I […]
