Marriage Webinar Giveaway!

  • Amazing Life Together

a weekend! We’re still recuperating from our 1st double header of the season! Achy feet, thousands of images to cull and weekend emails to respond to. We’re tired but it’s such a GOOD tired! :) We absolutely loved our time with Darrell and Meredith on Saturday and then Josh and Katie on Sunday! I’ll be sharing Darrell and Meredith’s images tomorrow and I can’t wait! While Michael and I LOVE beautiful images, what we really care about are beautiful marriages.

  • Coaching

sessions have been a HUGE part of this spring for us. We are so excited to have these amazing photographers come into our home and help them grow their businesses! …. But let me tell you, the more people we have come into our baby house and climb the stairs to my little office with sketchy air conditioning, the more excited I get about offering coaching sessions in the NEW house!! woopwoop! My current office has worked GREAT…. but we’re getting pumped about the move!! All of my coaching gals are such great sports.

My OCD Tendencies

  • Being Picky

considered myself to be OCD about anything. Sure, I’m picky about decorating and a few other things but for the most part, I’m not really all that intrigued by the small details of things.

However, a few days ago, as I was updating Facebook albums on the business page, I caught myself doing something VERY strange…. and VERY OCD. I found myself ARRANGING the images in the albums so that they “flowed” perfectly together.
