I Heart Faces . All Boy


June is here & with Father’s Day quickly approaching, I Heart Faces has selected “ALL BOY” as this month’s judged photo theme.

There are so many things that come to mind when we think of boys – dirt, bugs, fun, and energy are just a couple of things that come to my mind. But one of the things to remember is how sweet and innocent little boys can be…when they are sleeping.

I Heart Faces . The Letter “C”


This month’s I Heart Faces Social Media Challenge is an alphabet challenge over The Letter C. Out of all of the challenges I have entered so far, I found this to be the most difficult picture to choose. There are so many things in my life that I love and have taken pictures of that start with the letter C. Cookies. Coffee. Clouds. Cupcakes. Cozy. Collections. And these are only the ones off the top of my head.

Art House Co-op . The Chronicle Project


I have been so busy since our move and transition from Missouri to Oklahoma! It has been a crazy ride so far, but I am LOVING every minute of it! We’ve had such a great time meeting new people, going to community events, and exploring the downtown area of Tulsa. The downside of moving to a new place, however, has been that I have not had as much time to devote to my photography as I would like. I feel like this is about to change! I hope that you are as excited as I am for future posts on the blog!

I Heart Faces . The Letter “B”


As most of you know, I have been trying my best to enter into monthly photo challenges through a website called I Heart Faces. I have been loving taking part in these challenges and seeing all of the entries from others as well!

This month’s Social Media Challenge is on “The Letter B.” I have chosen a picture of boats from a recent trip to Alaska. This picture was taken in a little fishing town called Whittier. While we were in Alaska, I absolutely fell in love with this little town and all of the boats that were docked for the day. The haze of the fog set the perfect scene against the beautiful, mountainous backdrop, making this one of my absolute favorite vacation photos of all time.

I Heart Faces . Happiness


When I saw that this month’s judged I Heart Faces Challenge theme was happiness, I knew exactly the picture that I wanted to use. This photo was taken at a session I just recently shot of our friends Travis & Amanda and their two little girls. Travis & Amanda wanted to take their girls to a local park just minutes from their house where they go to play with the girls often. We took only a couple of posed family shots, but then let the girls free to play. I love the honest and heartfelt pictures that I got from this session because I was able to let the family play together at the park like they would on any normal day. It is pictures like these that a family can look back at years from now and say, “Do you remember playing at that park all the time?” or “Remember all of the fun memories we made there?”

I Heart Faces . The Letter “N”

The Letter N

I Heart Faces has switched up the way they are doing their challenges and have started doing social media challenges. The current challenge is an Alphabet Challenge over The Letter “N” and I have chosen a picture of my brother’s necklaces. The coolest part about these necklaces, though, is not just how awesome they look, but that they support a good cause.

Let me explain. My brother’s necklaces are from Mudlove, which focuses on the principle of giving to others. As a company, the focus is mainly on providing clean water for people in Africa, but they also provide their necklaces and bracelets for fundraising purposes. That is where I heard of Mudlove, from a friend named Joe who was fundraising for a trip he took last summer.

I Heart Faces . Hearts


I am so stoked about this week’s I Heart Faces challenge – HEARTS! There couldn’t be a more appropriate challenge with today being Valentine’s Day! And I have to admit that even though Valentine’s Day has gotten a bad reputation as a “Hallmark Holiday,” I am honestly a huge fan of taking a day to show the one you love how much you care. Sure, you should show it in some way every day, but there is just something magical about Valentine’s Day. Perhaps, it’s because I have a super awesome Valentine that I love so much! Doesn’t that make you want to say, “aw.”
