WOW!! I am back....for GOOD this time!!

ok, so like its really been the most intense crazy 6 months of my LIFE. let me catch you up. Lets do bullets to make this easy and less to read. i hate to read. i like to look at pics. lol, yes its my ADD.

  • September: stopped breastfeeding Wyatt. successfully weaned off my antidepressants that i've been on for years. we went to az grand resort for a night with the boys for a fun labor day!: )

  • october: halloween!! we seriously went to 5 halloween parties this year. i dressed my kids up FIVE times. it was nuts! but fun: )
  • november: we went to california to spend time with family, went to disneyland, and my big brother George got married.....FINALLY!! ha! he's 37!: ) He married the sweetest most perfect girl ever, Ingrid: ))

  • December: made the huge announcement that after 7 years of doing what i absolutley LOVE, i closed my business, S.I.M. Agency. One of the most difficult and best decisions of my LIFE. Made an agreement with another agency in town for all my talent, . Then there was christmas, new years, etc. With all the drama, my ever struggling battle with anxiety and panic attacks returned and had to get back on the antidepressants to help gain my sanity again. Its been 2 months and i am still trying to stablelize, but i am getting better each day. I think it is important to speak about this so that others that struggle with anxiety and depression dont feel alone.

  • January: my baby baby Wyatt turned 2 years old!! i cant believe it!! Also we had an agency "wrap" party to end the era of S.I.M. Agency

     we took kids to amazing jakes: ) fun times: )
     wyatts obsessed with his baby couzin Kaiya!
  • February: me and trent went off to the Firesky HOtel for a night to celebrate love day. also took kids out to Superstition Farm, they love it there and so do i: )

Many of you know i was a photographer before i had my agency, and i have decided to get back into it again. i have been practicing alot, heres some stuff i shot recently. i will be launching my *photography business* this summer most likely. so check back often! here are some recent *tests* i have done to practice.....

*birth photgraphy....

 children photography....

 family photography....
 fahion photography....

 senior photography...

So, now what? Well, besides just trying to adjust to my new *normal* life of being a stay at home mom....which involves alot of running around, grocery shopping, cleaning, cooking, and my fav, *playing* with my babies, life has settled down ALOT. I am enjoying spending all my time with my kids and practicing my photography skills. I have a very blessed life and couldnt ask for more: )



  1. Love it. You inspire me. I have had anxiety for the past year and feel sometimes like a crazy insane person! Can't wait to have you and your cute boys over to play!

  2. thanks danelle: ))) i am open to discuss the anxiety any time! i have found the more you talk about it the more options and coping methods you find that will help you: ))

  3. I would have loved to have you shoot my baby at birth. K, we need to talk...My sister is struggling with anxiety and stress and she needs help.
    Miss you!

  4. Hey love the pictures! i dont know if you are on birth control or not, but i always have anxiety, but when i am on any sort of birth control, (IUD, ANYTHING) I am a nut case. I have panic attacks all the time and cant breath most the time, the one thing that I have found that consistently makes it better is getting off birth control....
    Also, i have heard getting off sugar helps, tho i am sure you dont eat much of that. Then there is the gluten theory.... :) I hate for you to feel that way! it really is TERRIBLE!

  5. Love it :) I'm like you and love looking at pics! I totally get the depression thing-no shame, take what you need to feel sane! I hope things will calm down for you in more ways than one so you can get a break in once in awhile, you are one busy momma! Thanks again for the offer to shoot us and our baby in a few weeks...looking forward to it! My sister also would like your info and prices, she is looking for a photog to do six months pics of her son. I'll send you an invite to my blog, but I'm telling you now-it's no where as interesting or as busy as yours lol!

  6. barbara jo! email me:, id love to talk to you or your sister about the anxiety stuff.....
    never been on birth control, but thats good to know!
    dianna! i am excited and standing by! as soon as you are close to pushing him out let me know so i can get there right after birth: ) and have your sis email me: )

    xoxo to all: )
