My kids don't have social media and I'm ready to talk about why. Now first of all, let me get something out of the way. This is a zero judgment post. You go ahead and raise your kids the way you want to and I'll do the same. I do, however, look around and find myself in the minority these days and sometimes, it can feel a little lonely. You can start to question yourself, and think maybe you're crazy or there's something wrong with you if you don't let your kids have their own phone and social media. It's isolating,...

So if you didn’t see our last post, CC and Mike just got back from our first overseas trip—Paris and then to Southern France and the French Riviera! After exploring Paris for 4 days, we jumped on the fast train (pause to point out how lacking it is that we do not have these amazing trains in America!) and made our way down to the French Riviera. Here are our Travel Tips for you if you're planning to visit the French Riviera! 1. Stay in Old Town, Nice – Our apartment was in Old Town and it was an amazing location.  We...

Paris was never on my top 10 list of places to visit. Just keeping it real. So why did we end up in the City of Light for our first ever overseas trip? Well, when you have a 21 year old niece who decides to move to France for a semester, Paris and France suddenly catapult themselves to the #1 list, that’s why. So, Mike Miller and I packed up and left the kids—with a ten page print out of school and activities and practices and baseball games for the grandmas—and we headed to Paris! Here are all our Paris Travel...

Marriage is all about compromise y'all, which is why I've decided I'm going to write this blog post on 5 Tips for Creating a Master Bedroom he will love too.  Because you know what, I love Mike Miller. And I know that when I go with a pink rug and crushed navy velvet chairs and leopard pillows in the living room, that it's too much to also ask him to go that glam in the bedroom too. So, I've tried to go a bit more masculine in the master bedroom and create a space that reflects his style as well.  I'm...

"The journey of a thousand miles begins with one single step." - Lao Tzao You know what I've realized recently? I'm great at taking the first step. It comes naturally to me, if I'm being honest. Starting is my specialty, I would say, and I'm never short on ideas – OMG let's start a new company, won't that be fun?! I'm going to start blogging again! I'm going to start a print shop and sell my prints! Why not write a book? It's all going to be so wonderful! Cue that annoyingly hilarous song from the Lego Move – Everything is awesome!! That's my mindset at...

I am so excited to share this Tulsa Wind River Home Tour with you guys. Undoubtedly my favorite part of my family photography days, was doing  lifestyle sessions and newborn sessions. Why, you ask? Because I was able to photograph families in their element, where they are most comfortable, in the place they spend more time than any other—their home. Okay, and if I'm being honest, I also love seeing inside people's homes and checking out how they decorate them. The Thompson family was not only one of my favorite families to photograph, but I also fell in love with their...

Shop my friend Nicole's gorgeous living with our horse print here. [show_shopthepost_widget id="2594223"] In case you haven't noticed, I'm obsessed with horse photography and I'm even more obsessed with using horse photography in design. I've always had a thing for horses—just ask my mom. I use to obsess over going to my cousin's house, who had horses, because I just wanted to be around them, to ride them, to dream about one day owning one and yes, I even wrote a letter to the Disney Channel and said I wanted to be a jockey at one point. It was a low moment,...

I've been struggling this week. And when I say I've been struggling, I mean—I started ugly crying in the car in the middle of a torrential downpour while listening to a Miley Cyrus song—kind of struggling. My daughter probably thought I was crazy when she told me she wanted to sing the song she we was working on in  her lesson, and as the music soared and she hit the refrain, I burst into tears.  OK, not just tears you guys, it was that ugly sob that contorts your face into something that looks like it belongs in a horror movie and...
