I guess I’m getting old.

I didn’t tell anyone it was my birthday, or that it was coming up. I don’t really like making a big deal out of my birthday, because as my husband once said, we should be celebrating our mothers for bringing us into this world. Despite not wanting to make a big deal out of it, I was very thankful for the very sweet and thoughtful gifts I received from friends and family, and I feel very fortunate that I was able to spend the day with my family. Here are some of my faves from the day 🙂 My niece helped me blow out my candles, and we colored a picture in a coloring book together. She said, “My mommy is going to love this picture because I wrote her name in silver, and silver is her favorite color!” I know that her mommy will like it very much 🙂  We also told my nephew that the crumbly part of the ice cream cake was where the bugs live. His face was priceless.

You can usually find me adding books to my never-ending “to read” list; challenging myself to do things like not shop for a year; sneaking crispy m+ms from my secret hiding spot so I don’t have to share them with my daughter; and melting over seeing my children smiling at each other.

Oh and I guess I should mention - I’m a seasoned Portland wedding photographer who provides not only kick-ass wedding photos, but also a meaningful and laid-back experience from the time you book to the delivery of your final images. 

I share all things personal, business, tips, and life as a mom and business owner here on the blog!
