I don’t even know where to start with this one. Obviously these are my maternity portraits, but they’re so much more than that. This is my whole heart wrapped into a post. My loves, my life, right now. I know this stage is fleeting. Soon we’ll be a family of four. We’ll have two little girls […]

Last fall we took the most whirlwind of a trip to Iceland with my mom and her husband. Right smack dab in the middle of wedding season. I was newly pregnant and extremely exhausted. It was crazy and amazing at the same time! It was the first time we left Ada for a trip like […]

And just like that, my dreams have come true. Ada is going to have a little sister! We’re going to be raising TWO daughters! My heart couldn’t be any happier than it is right now!

I used to be one of those people. You know, the kind that judge all those moms out there on social media for posting 424,312 photos of their child’s first day of school. Why was it such a big deal, I wondered? No one cares, I thought! I’ll never be one of those moms, I […]
