What about when you’re alone with your boyfriend or future boyfriend?
Countless friends have recently asked me this question, and I feel as though it is such a hard battle to face and discuss. I tried my best to be understanding and transparent, and every time I prayed about this for my sweet friends, a word kept coming to my mind: boundaries.

She would bring us her delicious cake pops every week and I fell in love with these little things. Kylie is talented, y’all. Not only are her cake pops super tasty, […]

As the last Friday of the month is here, I was asking God what to write to sum up my month on writing focused on community. I couldn’t get out of my mind a comment I received on last weeks post and kept trying to focus instead on hearing God instead of being distracted. Eventually I […]

Often we look around where we live and get bored, or maybe you just dont like where you’re living because its not “pretty enough”.  You probably see all those gorgeous places from your favorite photographers and you throw your hands up and say “Ill never have photos like that, theres no cliffs or waterfalls near […]

I made the mistake of turning the TV on. I know, I know, I should have been content with Netflix, but I closed my computer and turned the TV on anyway. I’m not one to watch the news- don’t get me wrong, I think it’s SUPA important to stay informed, but every time I watch […]

When you find your people, you just know it. People that just “get” you. People that inspire you. People who are real, who are a refuge. You know, people who make you feel good about being human. Who fill your heart with hopes and dreams and encouragement. This fall, I went to a conference in […]

This last fall, I was living in a close-knit community. When I say that, I mean I was living in a 4-bedroom house with 23 people with another 20 down the road in another house (we were all working for a non-profit doing outreach, events, worship nights, nationwide tours, and more in the southern California […]

Often times I get really wrapped up in everything that comes with running a small photography business, from finances and bookings to editing and keeping up with my social media. It can be one big viscous cycle and before you know it, you find yourself constantly sitting at the computer hopping from program to program, […]

When I was a senior in high school I was restless.  In a world filled with college applications and dreams of the future I had no idea what I was going to do with my life.  I had so many interests in so many things.  While my friends knew what they wanted to get their […]

Let’s be real: looking for community is just plain hard. I think deep inside ourselves, we know what community is meant to be. We know God intends real community to be a space for us to love and be loved, for us to be challenged, to be kept accountable, to feel known and accepted, where […]

I have a feeling I’m not the only one who has ever felt…well…kind of bored in the church world (*DUN DUN DUNNNN!*). Included in that is this: I don’t think I’m the only one who has felt a lack of vitality in a small group/youth group/high school group/etc. Even if you’ve been blessed with incredible […]


One of my biggest goals for this year is to complete a styled shoot full of vendors. It can be a great way to get more involved in your community, whether thats local vendors or your small business community via resources like etsy.  Last year at the delight retreat I got to photograph a gorgeous […]


Situation and circumstance are the grounds in which satan plays. In a world of billions of people he tries to convince us that we are, in fact, alone. We can sit in a room of crowded people and somehow feel like no one can possibility understand what we’re going through. We forget that there are […]
