About the Lifestyle Blog

My day job is a wedding photographer, but my life consists of so much more than weddings. Here on my lifestyle blog, you’ll learn a lot more about me personally away from the camera. I love Jesus, being a wife, crafting, cooking, growing things, and so much more. I’ll document my heart here and I’m glad you’re along for the ride.

This week was Matt and I’s half anniversary. And while we don’t celebrate it, I’m a dates girl and just love remembering little things like that. While thinking about being married for 4 and a half years, I started thinking about how long 4 years is. 4 years is the amount of time Matt and I…

I’m a dates girl; always have been. I love dates. In school, I loved history and learning about dates of historical events and in my own life I love dates of my own personal “historic events.” This has especially been true since meeting and dating and marrying Matt. We have so many significant dates (that…

Last month Matt and I traveled down to South Carolina to Kiawah Island for a little family vacation. We were able to meet up with Matt’s extended family to celebrate Matt’s grandfather’s 80th birthday. It’s so wonderful to get to see everyone. We always have a fun time and I love getting to spend time…

As I alluded to in my post yesterday, one of the biggest changes to my website (other than design) is the addition of Her Heart is Glad. In college, I blogged religiously. It was how I processed my thoughts and documented priceless moments. Blogging was an incredible outlet for me and was so much fun! However,…

For anyone who knows me, one of the first things they learn about me is that I have a major love affair with food, but more specifically sweets. I love my sweets: cookies, brownies, pies, cakes… you name it! And there is nothing better than nearing the end of a wedding reception and getting a…

One of my goals for 2017 is to write more “life update” posts on my blog. Our move to Kentucky has made many of our friendships long-distance, and it’s times like this I am thankful to live in a time with social media. I’m able to follow and communicate with dear friends all over from…

Yesterday, I turned 27. Twenty-seven. In 6 months, I’ll be closer to 30 than to 25… yikes! Age blows my mind on the regular because I cannot wrap my mind around how quickly time passes. But I feel blessed to be given 27 years. I’ve been told that as you grow older not only does…

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! If you remember my top 5 post about February, you’ll know that I love Valentine’s Day. Matt and I don’t really do anything over-the-top or exciting. But, it’s an excuse to eat yummy food, give little gifts, and create special memories.  I will be 27 soon, so I’ve had 26 years…

For Christmas, my friend Michele got me the best gift: she came to visit for a long weekend! Yay! Since she moved to Arizona in 2014, we haven’t gotten to see her very often. I visited her in Phoenix a few years ago, so it was only perfect that she come see me this time…

I am someone who deeply thinks about time and memories and the passing of time and memories. And the holidays, new year, and our birthdays make me think about how much time has passed.  Today my husband is 27. It blows my mind pretty regularly that we’re this “old.” We are adults who have jobs,…
