Our Family Photos // Fall 2015

Categories My Life

Fall is coming around again, my favorite season… perfect for the indecisive, fickle personality like me. There are warm days, there are cold days, you can wear pants with short sleeves or shorts with hoodies! It’s like a celebration of compromise. It’s wonderful. And that’s not even considering all the great excuses for baking and eating delicious food, the ocean of gorgeous leaves (each one unique and begging to be immortalized via my camera), and indulging in coffee and hoodies and all things cozy is almost a rule. 

Last fall (yes, because I like to wait a year to post my photos that way everyone looks almost totally different and the photos have barely any remaining relevance to our life and appearance) I asked my sister, Bethany, to take photos of our family. During this time of year the colors of the trees and the weather are begging for family photographs and I am not immune to that call. (PS – BOOK A SESSION WITH ME! I IMPLORE YOU!)

So here we are. Since these photographs Steven has lost a bunch of weight, I’ve lost less weight, Finn is still a legit baby, and Miles is just as cute and ornery as ever.

I’m the daughter to a King, wife to a man who makes me laugh, and mother to two boys who add joy and fullness to my life. I am a dreamer, a philosopher, an artist, and lover of things that stir my soul. I spend most of my days at home with my boys, Miles and Finn. We make messes (and occasionally clean them up), we giggle, we run and hide from dinosaurs and monsters and we read lots of books together. In my “free” time I feed my craving for art with various creative pursuits and indulge in tasty treats, coffee, and the occasional, guilt-laden Red Bull to feed my other addictions.


When it comes to my passions, I have many. God, Love, Family, Travel, Music, Design, Coffee… but somewhere near the top of the list you’ll find photography. From the moment I turned my camera lens towards a sunset for the first time, I felt an intense desire to somehow steal away the beauty of that moment and keep it forever. Now I walk around thirsty to soak up the beautiful moments around me, add a spark of something from deep inside my soul, then spill it back out to the world.
