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.

Top 5: Trader Joes Products

Something that I’ve enjoyed as an adult is grocery shopping. I like walking around and perusing the aisles, looking through the produce, reading labels. It’s just enjoyable!  I’m also an avid price checker. I get it from my mom. 🙂 I’m not as thrifty as her and I’ve learned there are particular items that I’m…

Personal Blogging Struggle

With the exception of weddings and sessions, I’ve been pretty silent online for the past month.  If I’m being honest, I don’t really have a good reason. We didn’t go on vacation, I haven’t been sick, and if I’m being completely honest, we haven’t even been that busy. So what’s the reason? Well, truthfully, I’m…
