I fall over and over again…

I fall nearly everyday, deeper and deeper in love with the man I vowed to spend the rest of my life with. Nicholas does a great job of making me feel so very loved. It is generally not with grand gestures, but rather with all the little things he does. It is him slipping out… Continue reading I fall over and over again…

Strenuous Moments

Energy envelops me; Buzzing, pulsating around me, seeping into my ears. Thunder of footsteps reverberates through the house. Voices echoing; My heart... lub-DUB, lub-DUB, lub-DUB . Inhale, exhale, my breath is in my chest and ears. Creaking of furniture, crinkling of wrappers, clinking of glass or ceramics. Can't think - everything echos (echos...echos...echos...).

Engagement Session

Last weekend I shot my first engagement session. This was very exciting and nerve wrecking all at once. It was  37 degrees out, windy and very cloudy. This produced quite a few challenges for me to overcome. Cold: not great weather to be outside in, a challenge to keep them warm and happy, red and… Continue reading Engagement Session

We kissed her good night and sent her upstairs to bed. A little while later when my husband and I made our… Continue reading Kids do the darndest things

Loss

As I sit on the shore of Lake Michigan I am overcome with emotions. I don’t know if it’s the lake or that I find myself near my breaking point. I feel more when I am here. Not just emotionally, but physically. Almost 3 years ago my life changed in ways that I could never… Continue reading Loss

Doing it better than before

This month an interesting parenting situation presented itself. Honestly as a parent we find ourselves in a plethora of situations we would not have anticipated. Taylor keeps us on our toes, constantly challenging us to learn and grow right along with her. This time however, it was someone else who made us consider all sorts… Continue reading Doing it better than before

Rising Waters

August 2018 was a very wet month for Wisconsin (to say the least). These photographs were taken August 25th after the first round of storms went through earlier in the week. Since then we have had rain nearly everyday. Stores, homes and streets are flooded. Highways are washed out. There have been many who have… Continue reading Rising Waters
