About me? Well lets see... I am a thirty-something Catholic wife and mother. I love a dark chocolate stout beer, the smells of fresh cut grass and bleach. I pray daily for patience and daily I fail at being patient. I laugh loud, love hard and cuss a little too much. I am wife to a painfully handsome man, who puts up with my crazy, tolerates my OCD and loves me endlessly. I am mama to one tiny hot mess of a daughter and the most beautiful baby boy I have ever laid eyes on. Half of my soul resides in their hearts.
I struggle with infertility, I am now using the NaPro Technology which helped me conceive my son after being told that I would NEVER have a baby with out invasive medical treatment.
After suffering emotionally, physically and spiritually through I.V.F. and surviving the devastating loss of twin girls, I have found a better way. A way that respects the sanctity of life. Please keep me in your prayers.
I am a professional photographer, I own South of the Orchard Children's Portraiture (formerly known as Firefly Photography) based in North West Arkansas and I love what I do. I started as a new mama with a hand me down camera who had no idea what she was doing, but I LOVED documenting my daughter's daily life. I became the perfect cliche "momtographer" but as requests for portraits started coming in, I decided to learn and hone my skill. Six years later I am still shooting and so excited to be re-branding my business. I have a background in OBGYN but left the medical field to pursue my dreams of photography and haven't looked back since.
I also write a blog about life, love, faith and the trials of motherhood. All of that raw honesty is located under the BLOG tab of this website. Take a look around if you have a chance!
I LOVE MY CATHOLIC FAITH, Jesus and the Traditional Latin Mass. I also think the Virgin Mary is pretty boss. We talk all the time and she helps me to be a better wife and mother. Well... that's pretty much it in a nutshell.
