Fueling Creativity + Photo Session

I have surely but slowly been picking up my camera again to capture these early days with my girl. I think that's what I love most about photography, its ability to freeze time when the days seem to be flying by.

Besides a photography class I took in Rome, almost 7 years ago, I have had no real training when it comes to taking pictures. But there is something I have always enjoyed about snapping photos. And you know what's great? Friends that share your interests and passions. My best gal, Marisa, came over yesterday and shared some photography tips and tricks with me. She also let me practice with her and her sweet girl, Elliott. It has been so fulfilling to dust off this old camera and get my creative juices flowing again.

Here are a few of my favorite shots from our quick session:

Thanks for all of your help, M! Five year plan, here we come.



We proudly welcomed our sweet girl, Emerson Grace Merrell, on October 28th, 2016. She weighed 8lbs 10oz and was 20.5 inches long. She is pure love and my greatest joy.
