LOVE 10 on Tuesday! I love the idea of a personal and business blog. Also I've been waiting anxiously to see Teagan's baby book...so excited and ready for some ideas!!!! :)


I wish I had advice for you!!.... with a 1 yr. old and a 3 yr. old... I feel your pain!!
quick question...
what is your favorite lens?
what do you keep your camera bag stocked with? (lens wise)
thanks for the info!
love your blog!


I'm pretty much a newcomer to your site, but I really like the idea of keeping 1 blog. Unless your clients wanted to have their pictures privacy protected for viewing or something. I agree that your life and profession are intertwined. Of course, like I said, I'm a newcomer so take that with a grain of salt!

Love your site!


ps I LOVE LOVE LOVE that photo board!!!


Abbey - if you look over to the right there is a section in the sidebar for what's in my camera bag. As for my favorite out of those....My 50mm 1.2 is my "go to" lens, it never fails me. I've been using my 24-70 a lot though. It's not "as" reliable since Ty dropped it last summer, but I do love it. I'm dying for the 70-200mm and the 85 1.2...those are next on my list.


Love your 10 on Tuesdays! Great job on the photo board-looks great.


Awwww... I LOVE that photo of Meredith and me! You are amazing! :)


I like the one blog thing. You seem to have a close relationship with many of your clients and it's neat to see that:)

With Taryn, have you tried experimenting with the different ways of talking? Our son goes through booming-toddler-voice stages and a neat trick he "learned" was whispering. I'll whisper to him at night when we turn on his noise machine or when I'm going to tell him a secret and he'll whisper back. If he's getting too loud some days, I'll tell him he's so loud that I just can't understand or hear him. He has no choice but to bring it down to a level that is more ear-friendly or I just don't respond. Took a few tries (and a LOT of Tylenol for mom!), but he gets it now. Good luck:)


I love your ten on Tuesday... Interesting that you are contemplating separating out your blogs because I have been thinking about doing the same thing, but am going back and forth with it for your same reasons too. I do however think that separating them out is winning me over. I'm about to launch a new website and I'll probably do the blog thing at the same time. I really think it's okay. :)


Oh wow, thanks!!! I should have looked more closely myself!!
That storyboard is incredible!!!

I hope you don't separate out your business and personal. I love how it is all intertwined.


Love your 10 on Tuesday! You have amazing photography skills, dying to see Teagan's book!!!
Love the 20x20 poster, perfect!
As for the blog, I can see your idea of being separated, ummm, I'm not sure. I think I would do it.
And for precious Taryn, I seriously think it's one of those things that just takes time. If she is using her loud, outside voice when talking to you, don't respond until she changes her noise level, otherwise, if it's just an all-the-time thing, good luck, I know it's hard. Just keep reminding her. In my experience, and from what I've read, it takes telling a child something 25 times before they remember, fun huh?

A few months ago I intertwined work and personal on the blogs....people really seem to like it! (and its a lot less upkeep!)


I vote keep one blog! Not everyone can pull it off but you definitely can!!
