Tate’s birth story began almost two weeks before his actual birth day. We had decided earlier in my pregnancy to schedule an induction for June 16, three days before his due date, but I was fairly confident I wouldn’t make it that far and that Tate would come early, like Jack.

Tate’s Birth Story


Here I am, nearly 30 weeks pregnant with baby Mallory #2 and FINALLY sharing the news publicly! I’ll admit, it’s a little strange to wait so long to announce this pregnancy online, but it feels really good to finally be making our happy news public with everyone. When we first found out we were pregnant […]

30A Beach Vacation

For Photographers, Personal

One of my goals for 2019 was to actually sit down and MAKE some freaking goals! 2018 was kind of a blur… I was learning how to be a mama and how to balance my business, and I was doing whatever it took to make it through! I did a lot of growing and learning […]
