This school year didn’t end like anyone had planned it. All our favorite Mountain Chapel Preschool spring traditions didn’t get to happen. No music program, no art show, no class picture, no May Day Play Day. I cried and grieved when Dixon’s last year of preschool abruptly came to an unexpected and shortened end. Like […]

Last summer, we had the best maternity pictures taken with my friend Kensi of Magnolia Photography! There’s a super fun Insta Story saved with my behind the scenes. Because we are in quarantine and James is almost nine months old, I figured it was time to share!

Even though I had a birth photographer scheduled, I really wanted to try to shoot my own Fresh 48 session. I love these hospital newborn lifestyle photos.

Have you ever gone through a period of time and experienced something so wonderful that you wonder how you made it before that? Something you didn’t even know was missing until you had it?
