  • Why You Should Exist in Pictures

  • Not just here in Colorado Springs but around the world women have an issue with comparing. I'm sure it even happens in those remote tribes we rarely hear about. This comparing leads to self hate, and self hate leads to not existing in photographs. Friend, I see you there cringing when I say you shou[...]
  • Adult Cake Smash Birthday Photoshoot

  • A group of us ladies in Colorado Springs decided to take a break and meet for drinks. I didn't know her well and she started talking about her 4oth birthday. She wanted to do an adult cake smash photoshoot. One of my friends piped up that I am a photographer. Because I had never done one, I told her[...]
  • She never thought she would be here...

  • There was this little girl who grew up with the impression she wasn't good enough, she could never be smart enough. Although she tried her best, she was compared to her straight A brother and told if she didn't try harder, colleges wouldn't want her. If nearly a 4.0 wasn't good enough why try anymor[...]
  • Luggage Holding You Back?

  • There is a line from one of my favorite kid movies, the character was told, "You are here for such a time as this." By the time we reach adulthood, we have baggage. You may have a light carry on while another has so many bags they keep running in reverse because they can't carry them all at the same[...]

If you were going on a vacation or a special event, you wouldn't go without getting your hair done, right? If you book with us, we[...]
  • If we're honest....

  • The idea of honesty is one that has weighed on my mind lately. I'm not talking about burning your Spanx or swearing of plastic surgery. I'm talking about emotional honesty. I would love to see more social media posts along the lines of "life sucks right now but I'm working on it" There's a song that[...]
  • Not Your Grandma's Nighty

  • Let me paint the picture for you...I was in my late teens living at the beach. It gets cold and especially when your house is large and drafty. I was just getting up when who should knock at my door? The guy who I was in that awkward almost dating but not quite stage. What was I wearing? A floor len[...]
  • Photography Is Easier Than Therapy

  • There's this huge sign I pass at least a few times every week. I know most pass it quickly, gather the information, and keep driving. Some probably don't even see it in the field. Well, this thinker likes to take a concept and twist it around. The sign is an advertisement for a recovery group at a l[...]
  • I'm a Colorado Photographer Now!

  • I know how often we can second guess a decision and wonder what life would be like had we not chosen it. In my life I had have made some pretty stupid choices and some pretty incredible choices. Those incredible choices have come about because I listen to that little voice that lives in the pit of m[...]
