The Anderson Family - Sparrow Bush, NY

I am excited to share these photographs with you all. As a family photographer, is easy to forget photographing those in your own life. Especially your friends and their own families! We've known Phil and Heather for about 8 years now and they have become pretty much family. Even after moving out of Massachusetts almost 4 years ago, and being far, this has remained true. Taking these pictures was also pretty special because these two have waited years for something like this.

The Pauly Boys - Bashakill Wildlife Area NY

Living here in the Greater Hudson Valley of New York is such a treat in the summer time. There are so many different parks, rivers and lakes, and opportunities to just enjoy wildlife. Having the chance to photograph these two Pauly boys in the Bashakill Wildlife Area made my week!

The Importance of Simplifying Your Life

For me, life is like traffic sometimes. Moving into the country really put a halt to a lot of the traffic in my life both literally and figuratively. Living 20 minutes outside of center city Philadelphia, was one big traffic jam and 1 million lights.

What I ended up discovering was that even though things were slowing down, I needed to learn about the importance of simplifying my life.

The Murray Family - Westminster, CO

So about a week ago I was talking with my sis-in-law and she mentioned how she wished she had had pictures done when my first nephew was born. I had originally planned on visiting later on, but when she asked if I could come and photograph the family with the new little addition I jumped at the chance. I never make last minute plane plans like this, but now I know why others do it. Living in the moment and not regretting takes a bit of spontaneity. So off I went!

How Nature Inspires Creativity & Peace

One of the blessings of living out in the country is being able to immerse ourselves in nature. At the base of the hill, on the edge of our property is this creek that rushes during the spring months. I love opening the windows and hearing it move in full force down its path. When we moved here from Philly, I immediately fell in love with the peace I found here.

The Journey of a Work From Home Wife

I am so passionate about this topic because it is a challenge that I have been willing to accept. I am all about busting the myths of being a wife at home and making it something more. Maybe it starts with believing that women can do a lot of great things, even in the corporate world. I am not sure. I think one of the reasons why I wanted to start a blog about the home, was because of this.
