The journey to pregnancy is crazy. Like really crazy. I’ve had two extremely different experiences getting pregnant. The first time around was the experience that I truly believe everyone who wants to be a parent deserves to have. We decided that we wanted a baby, we did some other things required to get pregnant, and […]

  It’s not every day that you come across a farm-to-fork event on a former airplane landing strip on a ranch. And while that may be special by itself, that is the uniqueness that encompassed each detail of this gorgeous evening celebrating the closing of a 60-year chapter for the Bowlsbey family. Glen (Bud) and […]

When my husband got the offer from his company to move to Sacramento five years ago, my initial reaction was “YES!” Of course then I remembered that while I had been to the Bay Area, Sonoma, and Los Angeles before, Sacramento was a whole new ballgame. We came out here to see what the city […]

  You GUYS! Why is quality sleep so elusive in adulthood? And why do we as adults put sleep at the bottom of our priority lists when we have heard time and time again that sleep affects every other aspect of our lives? While working to control my anxiety and trying to get pregnant at […]

Like many who have struggled with depression, my journey is not one that I readily discuss with just anyone. As a mom, wife, and (especially) a business owner, I was afraid that talking about my depression would make me appear weak or unwanted as a photographer.

How can such a simple question be so tough to answer?  Here’s the simple answer:  I am a stay-at-home mom and photographer.  But behind that answer are 264,957 other little answers that all contribute to what it is that I do. The idea of what I “do” used to be so easy to answer.  I […]

I’ll never forget that February Friday night back in 2013. Will came home from work and had barely said “Hi” before spitting out, “What would you think about moving to Sacramento?” Umm….. what?! I really didn’t know what to think, but I do remember I told him that we should seriously consider it. Actually, I’m […]

I love looking through old photo albums that my parents put together of my brother’s and my childhood. All of the photos printed out, film copies in the front, and the bulky albums all lined up on a shelf. I do have one album of printed photos of my son in our house right now, […]

Baby Benjamin was so happy in his momma’s belly that he decided to stay in his first home for several extra days. His parents couldn’t wait to meet him, and they’ve been soaking up all of the snuggles since the day he was born. I loved being able to see Benjamin, Ashley, and Curtis at […]

Social media is a highlight reel. We know that. And I think a lot of us think about that when we take pictures as well. Why take photos of the mundane when we think nothing is happening? I decided to challenge myself to take photos of all of the different activities that happened during one […]
