Look who’s back! How is y’all summer going so far? I have been sick for the last month and been to the hospital this year more times than the last 8years combined! Temporary lost vision on my right eye, been on antibiotics and too many eye drops but now seeing a little better. No booze and no prolonged sun exposure for me this summer. But on a more positive note I have been off work and have more time to pursue some business ideas. I also reflected on what I want to do for the next little while. Part of it will be focusing on my blog by being more consistent: I will be posting content every Monday on the blog and daily on Instagram. It would mean so much if you followed along and thank you for those who have been reading and supporting me since day 1, I appreciate you ❤️. #summer18#grateful#stayingfocused
When does this ever happen??! There are so many things I love about this image... the smoke making the lake look like an ocean, the birds (I mean COMMON!!) and how genuinely happy everyone is. Such an amazing family portrait!!!
Only 5 work days standing between me & my next international adventure! ✈️ Spent today finalizing some last minute details for my trip. I’m leaving Saturday for Reykjavík and I’m BEYOND excited. We’ll be there for a week before heading to Amsterdam for a few days. If you have any suggestions for things to do and places to see in either city, PLEASE send them my way! 💙
Guess you can say I’ve always had an attraction to photography🤷🏼♀️📷 Little strange that 4 year old me holds a camera the same way current me holds a camera😂 (Not sure what I was shooting back then but it looks like I was pretty pleased with the outcome🧐 YASSS girl work that plastic camera😝)
Finally making time to implement that brilliant content plan I made earlier this month.
The funny thing about plans is that they don’t work unless you take action on them.
My content plan was created to help me combat an overwhelming workload. It’s my last ditch effort before I finally break down and hire a VA.
At this rate, I’d do better just to let this go and allow someone else to help me. But I’m stubborn.
In case you haven’t noticed, we’re in the middle of a MAJOR baby boom here at AWP. I don’t know if there’s something in the water or what, but keep those babies coming! Newborns are my jam, even though I’ve got some major baby fever goin’ on. 🙈
It was William Henry’s turn this morning, but he goes by Hank. Hank the Tank, to be exact! I love the little nicknames babies tend to receive once they’re born. Eleanor became “Ellie Belle”, and we still call her that to this day.
Hank’s parents recently renovated their home, and it was filled with the kind of gorgeous light and soft neutrals that make this girl’s heart soar. It’s always a treat to get out of the studio and meet baby in their natural habitat!
Thanks for trusting me, Glenn and Christy! See you again soon!
Happy World Photo Day!
#WorldPhotographyDay is a global event that’s aspiring to create positive change in the world through photography.
For me, photography makes me feel alive. It captures moments to treasure for always. It brings people together, it tells stories, it reminds us to treasure the little moments in life. The beauty, the authenticity, the moments that make you, you.
Thank you to everyone who’s supported me on this epic adventure so far - and to those I haven’t worked with yet; I can’t wait to tell your story with you. And hubby: thank you for helping make this possible.
So apparently today is world photography day?! Special thanks to @veelovies for letting me know!!
Thankful I could turn this art form into a business that supports our livelihood. Thankful I have the opportunity to be welcomed into people’s lives and document their most precious moments. Thankful for the community I have because of photography. Just overall very appreciative for this life I life and will never take it for granted #worldphotographyday

The smoke today is crazy bad! So we are all cooped up inside and I thought it was time for a little peak into my last session! I was so excited to photograph this gorgeous family!! Just look at them!! 😍😍😍
Oh! And I’m booking well into October now, and those prime spots are filling very quickly! You know the ones where the leaves are the prettiest!! 🍁🍂 So if you’ve been thinking about it, don’t wait to book because spots will be gone soon!!!
The weekends go by way too fast and it never seems like enough time that I get with them. But man, did we have fun this weekend!! We choreographed a new dance and put it on YouTube!! I’ll put the link in my bio for a few days just in case anyone wants to see it. 💖
Don’t tell a girl with fire in her veins and hurricane bones what she should and shouldn’t do. In the blink of an eye she will shatter that ridiculous cage you attempt to build around her beautiful bohemian spirit. 🌾
We’ve spent the past few days in Oregon celebrating our grandparents 50th wedding anniversary! It’s wonderful here and their vow renewal ceremony was absolutely beautiful! Can’t wait to share more!! ❤️
