We hope you grab some coffee (or a diet coke, in my case) and enjoy viewing our latest work, browsing resources for photographers, and getting a little peek into our life!  Read more...

Behind the Scenes 2016

  • Our Real Life

Some of you may have heard through Instagram or Insta-stories that I’ve had some very interesting medical issues come up recently! This past Saturday I woke up with excruciating pain in my right hand, and I had an MRI this week that will hopefully tell us what’s going on! So this entire blog post is being written through talk-to-text on my phone! It’s a lot faster to say a blog post into my phone then to type it with one hand!

Why We’ve Been MIA

  • The Silver Lining of Gestational Diabetes

Welp…. I haven’t blogged all week, because life has just been crazy around here! About two weeks ago we found out that I didn’t pass my second glucose test. Out of four blood tests, two were too high and so that puts me in the category of having Gestational Diabetes. I’d be lying if I said that I handled this well. In the midst of packing up our life and trying to finish up a house I wasn’t prepared for something else to worry about. I had several meltdowns and part of that was because we didn’t get a lot of info when we first found out. We basically got the call that I didn’t pass and I needed to start perinatal (high risk) appointments. That’s it.

A House Update!

  • We're Almost Done!

We get asked the same two questions these days… when is the baby due and when is the house going to be done. The next question is “So you’re moving in BEFORE the baby comes right?!”. Thank goodness yes. Our move-in date has been pushed back from Thanksgiving, but we WILL be moved in before the baby comes! One of the first people we told about the baby was our builder, because we wanted him to know we had a hard deadline!!! We should be moving in after just a few more weeks if we don’t experience a major roadblock of some kind! We are SO excited!
