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.
