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.

Travel: Charleston WV 5 Year Anniversary

2017 has been a great year all around, but it’s a little extra special because Matt and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary! It’s hard to believe we’ve been married for 5 years, but then also not that hard to believe. It probably comes as no surprise for a wedding photographer to love weddings, but…

September 29, 2017 Thoughts

Back when I was envisioning how to incorporate Her Heart Is Glad into my photography blog, I wasn’t sure how it would work. And while I haven’t 100% nailed down how I want to go about lifestyle and personal blogging, for now, I’ll just post as I feel lead. I won’t post these thoughts on…

Life Update: House Progress 1

It’s update time! So many people have been asking about our new house and I’m finally able to give an update! First, we’ve officially moved in!

Travel: Southwestern Kentucky 2017 Solar Eclipse

I’m hopping on the solar eclipse bandwagon with this post, but like so many others, I believe it was amazing! Let me preface this post by saying that this August 21, 2017 eclipse has been on our calendar since the day Matt decided to go to Southern. Literally, as soon as Matt got in to…

July 4, 2007: Reflections

So I know it’s going to seem a little weird posting an image of the Eifel Tower on July 4th, but this picture and the trip that it came from changed my life. Ten years ago, I took a trip of a lifetime. I went on a two week tour of Europe starting in Rome and ending…

Letting Go of Dreams and Creating New Ones

I grew up in a small town in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. My family would often visit my grandparents who lived a few hours north in the Shenandoah Valley. And while my family traveled to different states each summer, that little area of Virginia was always my favorite. My grandparents inherited an…

Four and a Half Years Reflection

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…

5 Years Later – Reflecting on May 10, 2012

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…

Travel: Kiawah Island

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…
