Taylor always looks so different all dolled up. At 10 years old she doesn't get to wear makeup except for very special occasions and even then it is limited to lipgloss and maybe eyeshadow. After her picture session, for her ballet recital last week, I decided to take a few snaps of her in the… Continue reading Tiny Dancer
Most of Taylor's life I have been sneaking in tiny conversations about consent. This started when she was very young (she is 10 now). The conversations revolved around not being forced to hug friends or family members - for any reason.

Wowza! The last few months have flown by! So much has happened that I have struggled to keep in touch with everyone. At the end of February I chopped off all of my hair.

Sometimes I think about doing something and not forgetting, that I am unsure… Continue reading Did I do that?

Unfortunately, out of Madison there are not a ton of options for flight times; so they end up leaving very early in the morning or landing very late at night. Because… Continue reading Some people’s kids
