New! Photo Preparedness Fast Class

One of my 2022 goals is to test “Fast Classes” on various topics. Sure, I have online courses that dive DEEP into specific concepts but sometimes there are topics that don’t need a full 2+ hour course, you know? No modules, no lessons- one single video to watch (ideally 30 mins or less). The first two classes...

year in review [2021]

This year certainly had its surprises, but in general it brought much better balance in my life. My kids were mostly in school full-time which allowed me to work normal hours (no more late nights + weekends), I took the summer off again to enjoy family time, and I outsourced some aspects of my business...

Jill is seven!

Jill, You are seven years old, baby girl!  This year you bravely walked into first grade, after a night of tears shed because ALL of your Kindergarten besties were assigned a different classroom. My heart broke as you cried, but I knew you would flourish in the following days. You’re the social butterfly of the family,...

YEAR IN REVIEW [2019]

Wow… it’s been quite a year.  So much content creation: I created + launched FOUR new online courses, shared free content every week for my ‘monthly themes’, contributed to some APPO classes, and got to be on my first podcast (I hope to do more in 2020… it was so fun)!⁠ Can we talk financials...

hiking snow lake

Snow Lake has been on my ‘to see’ list for a long time so earlier this summer, I finally set a date and arranged a babysitter.  I knew this was a longer hike (7+ miles) and there was no chance the kids would enjoy that.  We made it a day date, which was perfectly timed...

our trip to whistler & vancouver

Earlier this month we spent 10 days in Canada, visiting Whistler & Vancouver.  It was a quick & easy roadtrip from Seattle and really fun!  The best part?  TOTALLY fun for the kids too! first stop:  whistler It’s a pretty quick drive from Seattle to the Canadian border.  (Prolonged slightly by the fact that it was...

our roadtrip to bend, oregon

As I shared in an earlier post (our roadtrip to glacier national park), John & I wanted to focus our 2015 travel plans on seeing ‘local’ sights and exploring more of the Pacific Northwest.  Mostly because roadtrips are easier than flights when dealing with two small children (at least for us).  One of our neighbors...

our roadtrip to glacier national park

When we roadtripped from South Bend, Indiana to Seattle for our big move two years ago, many people told us we should spend time in Glacier National Park, Montana.  Except, it was an additional 3 hours from our route and we weren’t exactly in the right frame of mind to enjoy it (car packed to...

luke – west seattle baby photographer

Remember sweet Luke from his newborn debut?  Well he’s only gotten CUTER over the last seven months!  We met at my favorite location, Lincoln Park in West Seattle.  Had to.  These guys live in West Seattle too. Here are a few of my favorites from the session.  First of all, let me just say that my favorite thing...

a midwesterner’s survival guide to seattle

Seattle is growing LIKE CRAZY.  It’s currently the fastest growing city in the country and, living here, that’s obvious.  Within one mile of our home, in any direction, there are thousands of new condos/apartments being built.  Let’s stay positive and focus on how awesome it is to have that many construction cranes within walking distance when...

three reasons why we love ‘the little gym’

I remember sitting down on the “big blue square” for the first time, Colin nestled on my lap.  He was just 15 months old when we walked into the Birds class at The Little Gym.  As I greeted the other parents, I worried about how class would go because Colin wasn’t walking like most of his...

julian & ethan

We may all live in Seattle now, but there’s clearly no escaping our Minnesotan pasts.  This adorable family found me through a mutual friend- my husband’s past coworker was her husband’s high school friend.  Not all that surprisingly, all FIVE of us spent time working at Target’s headquarters.  I am oh. so. thankful. that the...

ten things to do with kids in west seattle

West Seattle is truly a gem.  We moved here a year ago and instantly fell in love with the community.  [I wish I could say we heavily researched & intentionally chose West Seattle because of its awesomeness, but truthfully it was just a happy accident & I’m not that cool].  However we ended up here,...

freddy’s favorite treats!

What’s a birthday celebration without cake?  Better yet… a melt-in-your-mouth almond croissant, followed by a chocolate ganache tart, and washed down with a slice of ‘spring cake’ [a butter cake with lemon cremeux filling & buttercream frosting].  Oops, don’t mind me… I’m 6 months pregnant. Today’s giveaway will surely satisfy your sweet tooth.  Leave a...

Want to throw your child a ridiculously fun birthday party, with very VERY little work required from you?  (yes and YES!)  The Little Gym is your answer. No, I’m serious.  I walked into this birthday party after photographing 6 toddlers & 12 dogs earlier in the day.  I was WIPED.  As soon as I entered the gym,...
