Life {Unscripted} Volume 23

Welcome to the 23rd volume of Life {Unscripted}!  This past month we took our annual trip to Ohio.  We kicked the 4th of July off by riding in my father’s ’57 T-bird and throwing candy to the crowds in style.   There are children and dogs in abundance, humidity, wind, swimming, a toy closet with some vintage toys, boating, tennis and golf, “kayaking”, and a treasured family jukebox that plays 45s.  And most importantly, it’s our chance to reconnect with extended family […]

Life {Unscripted} Volume 22

HELLO!! and welcome to the 22nd volume of Life {Unscripted}’s blog circle!  June has absolutely flown by and it’s been a hot one in the desert.  We’ve had record breaking heat here, which means little to no outdoor photographs from me. I have found a few pockets of light in our home that give me some nice results, so the bulk of this month’s images come from those spots!  The big event this month was my daughter’s 8th birthday (8!!!).  We are […]

Cowgirl in the Sand

Art can be inspired by anything really, and for me it’s often music.  I find a lot of inspiration in songs and as I listen, I have visions of photographs. I recently took my daughter into the desert right by our house to let out her inner cowgirl.  The shoot was inspired by Neil Young’s “Cowgirl in the Sand.” She rocked it! So grateful that she indulges, and even enjoys my little inspired sessions. She makes a great partner in photography! “Hello cowgirl […]

And how ironic that the difficult times we fear might ruin us are the very ones that can break us open and help us blossom into who we were meant to be.” ― Elizabeth Lesser This year has seen a lot of change […]

Life {Unscripted} Vol 16

Greetings and welcome to my contribution to Life {Unscripted}’s 16th blog circle. I am so glad to be back after taking a bit of a break!  As we are approaching a new year in just a few short days, I can’t help but reflect on this past year.  If I could sum it up in one word it would be “transition.”  We’ve had a lot of changes, all for the greater good, but with that came a lot of adjusting and […]

Life {Unscripted} Vol. 14

Welcome to our 14th volume of Life {Unscripted}!  Winds of change continue to blow my family’s way this month. Another move slated for this week, and then a move in date for our permanent home in mid-January.  This year has me thinking a lot about transitions and how to find the strength to embrace them.  I am so proud of my little ones who have taken these changes in not only in stride, but with positivity and excitement.  We are knees […]
