Welcome to the blog! Here you'll learn more about me, my photography, my family & a little bit of everything in between! Grab a cup of coffee (heavy with tasty cream because drinking it black is gross) and spend a little while getting to know me & my work more.

I’ve been wanting to share this link & project with you all for awhile now! 🙂 I worked really hard and finished up volume one of Miles’ scrapbook. I say volume one because I still have lots of pics that need scrapped…and I didn’t want to be “done.” I’m not ready to close that door yet. I had some help from some of my online friends (thank you Lauren Reid’s team…I owe you guys so much!) They offered to help scrap some pages for me so I didn’t have to do them all by myself. I’m thrilled with how it all came together! It’s fun seeing my pages & theirs together…it just makes this book even more special! When the book arrived in the mail, I sat down and just took it all in. It felt like it was proof that he was here…there are times when it all feels so surreal. But, this book is proof that my baby was here…and he was an incredible inspiration for me & so many others!
Warning…tissues may be needed today.

Stephanie on Lauren Reid’s team, posted a link to a video called “Ninety Nine Balloons.” I watched it and it just spoke volumes to me…and I could relate on so many levels to this family. I just wanted to share their amazing story with you, too. You can watch it here. It’s 6 minutes…but so worth viewing!! I imagine that little Eliot & little Miles are good buddies in Heaven!
It’s so hard to believe that Mason & Miles are already 3 years old! On their birthday, we took Mason to Miles’ grave & we let go three balloons for Miles since they turned three. When Mason got out of the van, he walked up to Miles’ grave and said “This is Miles?” We told him that this is a place we go to remember Miles…but that Miles lives up in heaven with Jesus, and that we were going to send him some balloons for his birthday. When Mason let go of a balloon, he would say “Happy Birthday Miles!” Before he let go his last balloon, the 3 of us sang happy birthday to Mason and Miles & then we watched the last balloon float away. It was such a sweet, tender moment between the 3 of us. (then we booked it back to the van because it was like 10 degrees & so bitterly cold!)
Thank you for all of your love and support…our family is so grateful!
