Self Portrait

  Because it’s important for me to get in front of the camera once in a while. Because I’m an artist, and a wife, and a mother, and someday my grandchildren might be interested in a photo of their grandma way back when.

It starts at home.

With everything going on in the world right now it’s almost too much for an empathic person like me to bear. But I do bear it, typically by bottling it up, or compartmentalizing it, or writing about it. Now, that I have a child of my own, I try to focus on the change I…

‘Renaissance Rose’

Here are my favorite shots from my most recent photo session. Lisa is a friend, first time model,  and a pleasure to photograph. It’s so rare that I get to exercise my girl brain and have fun with a session like this. Hopefully, it’s the first of many more sessions with Miss Lisa. Enjoy! Model |…

Potty Training

Ok, we’ve been “officially” potty train Jack for a full week now. He’s in undies all day long, except for nap time and bedtime. He’s yet to poop in the potty, only pee so far. He doesn’t like admitting when he has to pee and he’s had a few accidents. Typically he poops at nap time…

The Mother Lode

If you follow my Instagram stories you know that Jack and I took a little vacation with my mama and sissy in law to the Sonora area here in California. We stayed in a quiet little cottage not too far from civilization, but far enough to enjoy a babbling brook, trees, wildflowers, wildlife, sweet summer…

Ode to Perfect and Popular Instagram Moms

How is it that your house is so clean? And your garden so green? And your walls so white? And your kitchen so bright? Do your toddlers clean up after themselves? Put away their toys and stack books on the shelves? Did they eat that whole wheat toast? And the Greek yogurt with steel cut…

Jack was a shit at the doctors today.

He was perfectly fine in the waiting area with all of the toys, but when it came time for the check up, he was having none of it. We could hardly weigh and measure him; he didn’t want the doctor near him. He was completely non-compliant and wouldn’t talk to the doctor, wouldn’t look at…
