  • Happy Sunday! (That’s for those of us who have no idea what day it is)
•
Help me.. because I’m running out of Netflix/amazon prime shows and movies to binge every night... what’s your favorite? Tell me below!
  • CHEERS to the freaking weekend! Even though for most - all these days are really blending together right now..
•
BUT - this weather?! It’s exactly what I needed! Instead of drinking inside - we can have a drink on the patio for a change of scenery! •
Also - how many times did you walk around your block today? Asking for a friend 🤪
  • This is the level of excitement I feel thinking about the dinner menu every night.. craziness, right? 😬
•
Things I look forward to in quarantine....
•
- What’s for dinner tonight?
•
- What’s for dessert? We’ve been having dessert almost every night when we normally NEVER do. Whoops!
•
- Reminding myself this isn’t forever and I’ll be back with my families and couples soon 🥰
  • Let’s talk about PORCH SESSIONS and why I am NOT offering them...
•
I personally have been tagged, texted, or sent dozens of sweet messages about people encouraging me to partake in something like this movement.
•
3 weeks ago, I set out for an afternoon of photographing families who were self quarantining for free. This was well before non-essential business’ were ordered to close and #stayhome. •
Now, #porchsessions are becoming a thing! Now, I do believe it is all with the best of intention.. you know I am the FIRST person to step up and give back to my community. However, it is illegal. •
My business is not essential. I love my job, but I’m not saving lives.
•
I’m committed to the safety and well-being of my community. I will not be a part of the reason this virus spreads any longer. You and I are not the exception to the rule, and I am going to do my part to end this. •

I know I might seem like a buzz kill. I know it FEELS harmless. But at the end of the day, our global health care community is struggling to make sure we are safe. They are working long hours, watching people die, and some of them are making the choice to isolate from their own families to keep the rest of us safe.
•
I miss my friends and clients. I miss feeling the sense of purpose my job brings me. However, I am not photographing people right now. •

Please, I am begging you.. #cancelfrontporchsessions , #stayhome and follow the rules! Do this for those who have lost their loved ones and weren’t able to visit them or hold a funeral, do this for healthcare workers who are isolating from their children in fear of spreading, do this for brides and grooms who have had to postpone their wedding they have been planning for 2 years... •

With that being said - I will be announcing a way to give back to all essential workers AFTER the ban on gatherings and work is lifted. ❤️
  • Not everything has to be a Pinterest fail, ya know?
•
Instead of focusing on the negatives brought by COVID-19, I made a mindset shift this morning to let myself freak out for 30 mins and then move on and try to find the positives..
•
Normally, I barely even have enough time to look inside my fridge let alone take the entire day organize and label the kitchen
•
I may look crazy with my label maker but it helps during busy season to keep things in their home and prevents overbuying and food going bad before you eat it •
Have you made any progress on your “quarantine goals” to-do list this weekend? 🥂 •

  • Don’t take anything for granted - I would give anything to be back working and photographing all of you! 😢
  • Where my mama to be’s at?! I’m sharing some tips of what to consider before booking a newborn session!
•
1.) Consider WHERE you want the session to take place! We offer hospital sessions, in-home sessions and in-studio sessions!
•
2.) Who do you imagine IN the photos? Are there siblings that should be included? What about the parents? Your pet? My answer: if you’re on the fence INCLUDE EVERYONE! We do not charge extra for this and never will because we believe you’ll never regret including everyone! I know after giving birth may not be the time you’re feeling camera ready but the glow of holding your new little will change your mind when you see them!
•
3.) WHEN does the session take place? Generally, the timeline is as follows... in-hospital: within 48 hours of birth, in-home or studio within 6-13 days of birth. Why? We want baby photographed before baby acne may develop, when baby is still sleepy as ever and they grow SO FAST after the 2 week mark hits! Now, of course in special circumstances we may not be able to photograph within 13 days and that is OKAY! So many think they’ve “missed the chance for a newborn session” and that is NOT TRUE! We will not turn you away from capturing those early days just because baby was held in the hospital later or you hadn’t scheduled yet ❤️ share these tips of what to expect with an expecting friend!

What are doing to help?
•

•
- We will work with ANY couple who have lost their originally booked photographer after having to postpone their wedding due to COVID-19 including accommodating their budget!
•
- We have lowered our wedding package deposit significantly to ensure couples are able to lock in their date! •
OVERALL - we are always flexible as we possibly can be and that isn’t changing - just expanding to ensure we can take care of all of you!
  • A little feel good photo for your feed right now!
•
One of my couples who were planning to elope with me this week.. due to COVID-19, we weren’t able to go ahead with the elopement but my favorite officiant @sunnylu1023 had them drive by her home and marry them from the driveway/safe distance! •
Congratulations Christine + Bill 🥳  I cant wait for when we can pick a date to fully photograph your then “vow renewal” 🥰
•
Never forget why you have a wedding or elopement - it’s about you and the person you love - and a ban on gatherings can’t stop that ❤️
