    This week I got the pleasure to feature my beautiful friend and fellow momma photographer Amber Beach. Amber and I met when we both worked at Buckle. We both had a passion for fashion, and we also shared the same passion for photography. Amber has been there from the beginning helping me through my first year as a professional photographer. She is one of the hardest working momma’s I know. I love our mommy photographer play dates where we get to have fun practicing our skills with our favorite models, our children. Check out my interview below with this beautiful momma!

    10 Things I’m Thankful For as A New Mom

    IMG_2569Last year today, I remember being 8 months pregnant, swollen from head to toe, and missing Thanksgiving dinner after almost having a terrifying experience of getting my wedding ring stuck on my swollen finger. It was a crazy time for me and my husband, we were house hunting, last minute trying to get everything ready for our new bundle of joy. I didn’t really have time to count my blessings at that time, but I also didn’t realize how much my life would change since then.

    Fast forward to today and as I sit in our new home with our 10 month old baby boy I can look back and say I am thankful for a lot of things this year as a new mom. There’s a lot of things I’ve taken for granted in my life, but now as a mom I have full appreciation for. Here are my top 10 things I am thankful for this year!

    So this past month since we moved into our new home, my husband and I have been exploring our new hobby of antiquing and refurbishing old furniture. I love the idea of making something old new again. One day while out antiquing we decided to stop at a Goodwill to see if we could find an old table or dresser. Though we didn’t find any luck with furniture I did stumble on this beautiful vintage tweed blazer. Continue reading

    5 Golden Rules When Designing A Child’s Bedroom

    nursery, nautical nursery, gender neutral, boy nursery

    On the blog, all the way from London, I have Domestic Clean London sharing with us the 5 Golden Rules When Designing a Child’s Bedroom. Here are 5 great tips I used when designing Jayden’s nursery. We wanted his room to be kid friendly, bright and airy, and something he can grow in. We chose a nautical adventure theme for two main reasons: one my husband works in the maritime industry and is training to be a Captain, and secondly we wanted my son to have a sense of imagination and adventure every time he escaped in his room. Most of his room was either a gift, a heirloom piece, or an affordable piece found online on Wayfair. We were able to save so much money by comparing prices and buying online at Wayfair that we wanted to give you a chance to win this classic white and grey chevron rug featured here from Wayfair. Below is a complete tour of Jayden’s nursery and a chance to enter to win.

    This week’s Behind the Lens Series I had the pleasure of interviewing one of Houston’s top wedding photographer and one of my childhood friends Jessica Pledger. We actually grew up a couple of streets from each other. She was an avid softball player as a young child, and eventually went on to get a scholarship to Harvard  University to play softball there. After graduating with an economics degree, she came back to Houston, studies photography at Rice, and started her photography business in 2010. She is currently married to her high school sweetheart and residing in the Houston area. Check out her interview below. She is definitely one of my inspirations in Wedding photography.

    Lately with all this rain, I’ve appreciated the need for fashion hats for the Fall. I’m a big fan for floppy hats and this has been one that has transitioned from summer to fall with me. As a mom, sometimes doing my hair is a luxury, and those days I can’t I love just throwing on a nice pair of jeans, a soft tee, and a hat. Continue reading
