Growing in 2017

Top Five Goals To Grow On

The coach and the kiddo are back in school so it’s time to take a moment to set some goals for 2017!  With 365 days to do all the things, anything could happen, and it’s best to have a little bit of direction.

Bye, 2016!

Christmas has come and gone, but I can’t let the new year pass without taking a moment to thank the wonderful families, children, and businesses who made 2016 such a blessing to both my photography and my family.

I am so thankful to have connected with a group of competitive cheer girls.  Tween photography and teen photography is one of my favorites to shoot, but cheer photos for Instagram take it to a new level of fun.

In the dark of night, my phone chirped. It was 1:45 a.m.  “We’re ready for you to be here.”

It was time.

Make it easy peasy

I’ve spent the last nine years being a way-too-busy mom.

I juggled a career, community involvement, volunteering at my daughter’s school, extra activities, housework, and kid schoolwork…all while sitting in DFW traffic.

Life was seriously crazy. And stressful.
