friends, meet fiancé; fiancé, meet friends

My friends, it has been a long time since we have spoken. Not necessarily for any one reason, but more because we all know that you can do anything, but you can’t do everything.

So here I am, having found a few moments to myself where I am not growing my photography business (Facebook page here, or Instagram here), or working a full time admin job, or playing on the worship team at my church, or doing life with my incredible fiancé, or planning my wedding.

Friends, more than anything I want to introduce you to Will.

He is patient, and kind, and good. And is is much more than I could have ever dreamed for myself.

We met because of church, and music, and friends. More specifically we met on a day that was supposed to be devoted to photography. He has always spoken confidence and worth into my heart, and I am blessed beyond words to marry him soon.

We plan on many life adventures, calling many places home, and on puppies and babies and photographing all the things.

I hope to give you more updates in the future, but for now, here are some #cutecouple photos to tide you over.

So much love to all of you,

Kait and Daniel, Maternity!

I have had the privilege of photographing these two multiple times for really special occasions. I’m not a professional, so I’m not going to lie, when Kait asked me to take Daniel’s homecoming photos when he came home from deployment last year, I got a little nervous. This time was definitely more chill and we got to spend a good time celebrating their new little one, coming soon!

Kait and Daniel have been really special people to me for several years. They are both extremely passionate about everything they do, about their lives, their relationships, and their goals. They have been through two deployments, over five years of marriage, and are still experiencing new adventures together. May God bless you both with your little one and I wish you both the very best in life!

My iPhone Life || April 2014


In April I began re-reading Nancy Drew books.  I’m reading one between my other books I’m reading.  AKA, I will read a Nancy Drew book between each Harry Potter book I am reading right now.
They’re such classics.  Even if they are outdated, I find the period and the stories idilic and romantic.


One of my subscribers made a joke about mustaches and I responded with this Instagram.


My mom and I tried a cute cafe near my house and really enjoyed it.  It was surprisingly chilly and we had to sit outside (in tank tops), but the setting is so idealistic and dreamy that I really want to go back.


Wearing my hair up, and in particular in braids, has become acceptable to me in the past few years.  I used to be extremely self conscious about my ears (because they stick out and are a bit large) and absolutely hated wearing my hair up.


I met the lovely Heidi from the YouTube channel While They Were Napping this month.  She is stunning, both in appearance and in her heart.  I love her heart for God, for her family, and for life.  I really enjoyed meeting her and her boys!


Pretty much the last batch of lemons and minneolas from my parents’ yard.


Finishing off the month with a selfie during golden hour with a crown braid on my head.
