Earlier this week I shared about my nearly 10 years using the name Kingsbridge Photography for my business. It served me well! In 2016, I began considering a rebrand to something personal. After all, what sets me apart from other photographers is ME! I attended a Katelyn James Workshop in June of 2017. Katelyn’s comments […]

My husband is one of the most caring, hard-working, kind-hearted people you will ever meet. I love him so much, and I can’t say enough good things about him. But what if I told you that getting married to him didn’t make me happy? That having all my dreams come true didn’t lead to happily […]

My 25th birthday was on Monday, and Tuesday marked 9 months of marriage to my wonderful husband, Matt! I’m telling you, 24 was a pretty crazy year. In the course of one year, I got engaged, got married, and Matt and I bought a house. You know, when you say “we bought a house” what […]

If I’m being honest, I haven’t learned any new solo pieces since my graduate recital in November 2015. That’s over two years without really using the degree that I worked […]
