Blogging hasn't been a front runner in my life these days.


I have gotten back to working out in the evenings. I am in week 4 of Chalean Extreme. I haven't had the drastic results I got last time I did it. I attribute this to my eating habits. They simply aren't as spectacular as they were the first time.

At this point though, I am just happy to say that I haven't missed many workouts. And I am getting stronger. I have lost 6lbs so far. I would love for that to be 10lbs, but I am not going to beat myself up about it. I have other things to focus on!

I have been diligent in building my photography website - In fact, its done and has been revealed to the public. I couldn't be more proud of it!! I can't wait for the Spring so I can start photographing everyone that has requested a Spring session with me.

Plus, I just bought my daughter this dress. And I am incredibly excited to photograph her in it. I have a vision. And this dress is a part of it :-)

In the meantime, I've basically just been trying to slow down my life. I am trying to play with the kids a bit more. And photograph them being themselves. I am trying to stare at them more and really try and take them in when they talk to me. I am noticing things about them that I have never noticed before. Its amazing how beautiful and unique they each are. Truly, they are little masterpieces. I love their Creator. He is so generous.

To wrap up these ramblings, here are a few things I have captured recently of my middle man.

For those of you that are interested, here is a before and after of my editing process...

And here is my favorite version of it...

I can't stop staring at it. And him.


  1. I don't blame you.. he is a pretty good looking boy to stare at =)
    I saw your fb post today.. and I totally understand how and what you're feeling. John and I have been praying ALOT about our future.. I have a feeling we're going to be making some big changes in the near future. This life is short and family is the most important thing. You'll never get this time back with your kids... they're growing up every second. So glad you're investing time with them.. you're such a good mama!

  2. Oh and ps, I can't wait to see what you have planned with that dress!

  3. Girl.... I need a photoshop session with you! Love your pictures! That little David is one handsome fella! :)
