Hi friends! I realized it's been a minute since I've introduced myself! And while I get my photography business back up and running, I might as well do an introductory post with some fun facts about myself. I'm not sure if you can tell, sharing facts about myself don't come super naturally to me... I apologize in advance if this comes across as awkward as it feels! (Ha!)
I want to share some things about me and my family to dive back into work.
-1. I’m a follower of Christ! I’ve been a believer since the 4th of July 2009!
-2. I met my husband 2 weeks after becoming a Christian, at the same friends wedding who led me to Christ.
-3. I’ve been married to the man of my dreams since October 8, 2010. He's pretty cool.
-4. We have 2 amazing and beautiful babies, Canon Jax (3 years) and Juniper Rose (9 months). We also have a Pekingese named Midge, and 2 cats named Jamaine and Xena.
(Side note: Jamaine is totally named after Jamaine clement from Flight of the Conchords.)
-5. I went to school for photography, and have been shooting since 2007 (seriously shooting since around 2009). I specialize in motherhood portraits, and photographing my children and daily life.
-6. I’m a self proclaimed ‘master DIY’er’. I love trying to do it myself when it comes to anything creative! I hope to share a lot of those projects with you!
(Side note: I have a small lovey shop that I opened in February 2018! It has been so fun getting to know the maker community over the past few months!)
-7. We have been living a plant based lifestyle since June 2017, and we all couldn’t be happier. It was a tough transition, but since then, I’ve lost weight, I feel healthier, and I don’t have the guilt I used to have when eating! That is a post that will come up one of these days!
-8. I have been breastfeeding (nearly) non stop for over 3.5 years! I nursed my son until he was about 2 years and 8 months. He weaned when I was about 17 weeks pregnant. I went about 5 months without nursing, then right back to it when I had Juniper. We are coming up to 9 months and we don’t see an end in sight!
-9. Some of my favorite things (in no specific order, Besides the first two) are: The Lord, my family, chips and salsa, cats, rain and thunderstorms, black coffee, dark chocolate, and the smell of the freezer.
10. I'm pretty anxious. I've struggled with anxiety for years, but I'm just now realizing it and able to pinpoint what it is, and how to help it. I struggle with social anxiety the most, but God is good, and I can do anything in Him. <3
And that’s me! I'm so excited and ready to get back to work, photographing and documenting both my family and yours! I'll be revamping my business over the next little while, though I am currently booking sessions! Send me an email for a custom quote!! <3
