My friend

I have this incredible friend. She is a health coach. She sat down with me one morning to have coffee. I got to see her in action, working on her dream of being a health coach. I was able to get a few pictures of her in action working on her plan to help others by getting them healthy.

She is an incredible person with an amazing personality. When she started on this path of becoming a health coach, she was on track to getting healthy. She lost over 15 lbs her first month and is helping tons of other women and men do the same thing! This is incredible. I am so proud of her! I am blessed to be her friend!


Batter Up!

Hey batter batter!

Swing batter batter!

Summer fun starts with baseball. Its fun tagging along with a friend. She has never played baseball but when you are the daughter of a photographer you get thrown in the mix and placed as a model for a future event!

Dress up


-the faculty or action of forming new ideas, or images or concepts of external                                 objects not present to the senses.

-the ability of the mind to be creative or resourceful.

-the part of the mind that imagines things.

Six and Seven. Those are some magic numbers. These two have the best time imagining together. They dress up and play imaginary games. Its incredible to watch little kids play and sometimes the things they think up are great!



  1. a designer of haute couture
  2. a devoted follower of fashion


This seven year old certainly makes a statement. She likes to pick out her own clothes and she likes to put together outfits that often make me cringe. I usually tell her to change, but sometimes something in me embraces her sense of fashion. The fact that she can create something, whether matches or not this is her. I try my hardest to hang on to these moments because they won’t last. She won’t be seven forever. She won’t always create outfits like this.

Taking pictures of these small moments are so important. They won’t last. But these pictures will capture a moment in time that I get to remember forever. I get to look at these pictures and see her attitude, her style and her personality.

Day 2- Personal

Day 2 of my personal photography journey. I wanted to take more pictures of Ava.

We decided to stop on the way home to get some pictures in the snow before it melted. I’m so glad we did because the snow melted pretty quickly!

Depending on the day, we come home and work on homework. She writes her spelling words out on a dry erase board and then after she is done she writes messages.
