This shoot was definitely a big collaborative effort that came together just as we envisioned it would. That is a very exciting thing to have a high expectation and feel really satisfied with the results. Our vision was dark, dramatic with a painterly Renaissance feel. We wanted to stay away...

Grant snapped these last photos of me pregnant a few days before I went into labor with little Harlow. Looking back on them, I literally cannot believe how huge I was. Also, I can't even remember what it felt like to have that big of a belly. Looking at these... Continue reading

Yes, I am still alive! I totally missed doing July's wallpaper. First month I've missed since I started doing these wallpapers. Taking care of a newborn is pretty intense, just like everyone tells you it is. :P Now it's my turn to experience it. But we are finding our rhythm... Continue reading

So I have been super absent from the blog lately. As some of you may have already guessed or seen on instagram, our little girl is finally here! Miss Harlow Eloise Short born June 15th, her daddy's birthday, weighing 6 pounds 11 ounces. She came a few days early after... Continue reading

This lookbook shoot was SUCH fun and came together so beautifully with the help of many creatives from Indy! Izzy & Es reached out to me last year about shooting their winter lookbook session at a local arts apartment building and I was of course on board. I really love... Continue reading

June's FREE calendar wallpaper is now available! This shot was taken on La Push beach last summer. After a long day of travel to get to Forks, WA and some unfortunate car trouble on the way, we somehow made it to the beach before sunset. Very few things in life... Continue reading

Thank you so much Ashley! I used fractal filters to get that effect but you can get a similar effect using a regular prism in front of your lens :)
Been editing all day everyday lately it seems and with that comes loads of new music necessary. Thought I would take a moment to share some new song obsessions from the past couple months. Been a while since I've shared my tunes, but two of my favorite bands have since... Continue reading

Sheri and Kathryn definitely humored me and let me fangirl over going to the homeplace of two of my favorite TV shows: Northern Exposure and Twin Peaks. I grew up watching Northern Exposure and going to the town where it was filmed was a really surreal experience. It sounds so... Continue reading

I had so much fun putting this album together from our beautiful vacation last year! Took me long enough ;) It was such a memorable trip and I am so thankful I used a really impeccable quality printer to put together the book. Bay Photo Lab has definitely blown me... Continue reading

Finally finished with the nursery. Well except a bookshelf that my brother is building me. Once that's done, all her books will be on display and ready for night time reads <3 My dad built this shelving unit for our old house and it used to have the TV in... Continue reading

This session was too good. Too much fun. I need more carefree sessions like this in my life <3 Kelly and I had a blast getting these lifestyle shots with her furbabies throughout her gorgeous home. I wanted to get really dark shots with lots of window light and her... Continue reading

I've really been MIA from the blog lately huh? I sometimes miss the days when I had time to blog every single day, prepare posts and come up with fun content and then there are days when I'm thankful that I am no longer binding myself to the commitment and... Continue reading

We recently spent a few days in Nashville to see Underoath and explore the city! Our first day there (and the only day I took pictures with my DSLR), we went to two distillery tours, drank too much coffee, checked out the Opryland Hotel's indoor gardens, did some shopping and... Continue reading

May's FREE calendar wallpaper is now available! This shot was taken in my plane ride trip home from Seattle this past summer. It was one of those photos that I took and then completely forgot about later. It wasn't until recently that I actually found it was like "Oh, this... Continue reading

(Click to view larger) Guys, I just finished editing the pictures from this trip. Yeah, like a year later. For real, it's silly how long it takes me to go through my personal photos. It's been so long that I was going through them yesterday and finding ones I 100%... Continue reading

We recently had the awesome pleasure of being photographed for a lifestyle maternity shoot at our house by Thistle & Lace Photography and I wanted to share a few of my many favorites! Very hard to narrow down to share, but I did my best to not overload the post... Continue reading

This session was SO fun and definitely a wonderful way to get some much needed creative shooting during the slow season! Me and Megan planned this session this winter and it turned out even more beautifully than we originally imagined. Thank you to our amazing vendors and model Kiona for... Continue reading

Our wonderful family put together a beautiful co-ed baby shower for us last month and it was such a fun, perfect day! We had such a blast celebrating with our friends and it really was extra fun having the guys there. It was just a relaxing time with delicious food.... Continue reading

I bought this dress a few months back with Christmas money because I thought it would be the perfect maternity dress and it definitely is. I absolutely love the linen fabric, tattered stitching, and the fact that I feel like a Little House on the Prairie babydoll when I wear... Continue reading

April's FREE calendar wallpaper is now available! This shot was taken in Yosemite during our stay last spring. I've been in such a joyful mood as of late thanks to green grass and flowers blooming. Right outside my office window, I peer out everyday to see the buds on our... Continue reading

My friend Lindsay has been making art journals for her babies' birthdays for years and I've always admired how sweet and thoughtfully put together they are. I've never been much of a scrapbooker, but I decided to do a scrapbook style art journal for our baby girl on the way.... Continue reading

So thankful my mom called me that morning to say there was a chance of visibility outside Seattle that night. Of course Sheri being miss adventurer was total up for driving us outside the city to search for them in the middle of the night. After over an hour of... Continue reading

I was asked by the lovely ladies at JenDaisy Boutique to model some of their maternity friendly styles for the spring lookbook and I thought I'd share some of my favorite snaps from their lovely photographer (and my dear friend) Lexi of Doodle Shots. I brought this first sweater home... Continue reading

So this is technically Grant's bathroom. There are two bathrooms in the house, both on the main level and since neither are double vanities, we decided to just separate out our things into the two spaces so we would each have our "getting ready" areas. Grant's was the first to... Continue reading
