Client Story: A Mommy and Me Mini Session

Laura and I have known each other for almost 10 years. We were friends long before either of us had kids. In fact, we used to work together. I was a business banker and she was a bank manager. Throughout the years, I’ve been lucky enough to to be a part of her life’s biggest moments. From her wedding day to meeting her first little girl when she was only days old, I feel as if Laura is one of those friends who I do life with.

10 Elegant Ways To Announce Your Pregnancy on Social Media

How people announce their pregnancy can really give you a sense of their journey. Maybe this is their first child and the pregnancy was completely unexpected.

Whatever the story is, the picture you choose to share on social media can help you convey that.


These pregnancy announcements really evoke emotion. They make their audience feel as if they are apart of the mother’s journey. You instantly feel connected with the excitement each mom is feeling and the adventure that is about to begin.

Client Stories-A baby at 34 weeks

“If Disneyland is the happiest place on earth, then the NICU must be the saddest.”

There is something so enthralling when a client shares how their little one entered this world. I love hearing all the details such as when they went into labor, how long everything took, and what the birth was like.

That was Kristen’s story.

A Love Story-Our 10 Year Vow Renewal

Last September, Matt and I celebrated 10 years of marriage with an intimate and elegant vow renewal ceremony. I have been patiently waiting to share all the details and the beautiful photos we had taken to forever document that special day. Renewing our vows served as an important reminder of how much we have grown as a couple, as individuals, as parents, and as a family.

These past 10 years have shed so much light on what matters most to us. And as we continue to build a life we are proud of we’ve learned a few key lessons along the way. In honor of Valentine’s Day, I’ve decided to share our story and how we’ve made it this far in our marriage. While our story is unique to us, the take away can be applied to anyone.
