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.

True Beauty

It’s crazy what our culture has done to the concept of marriage. I get these young, doe-eyed girls who come up to me all full of hope, as if their life is dependent on my answer when they ask “so how’s married life?” And then I feel this social responsibility to say, “Oh it’s everything I’ve […]

Writer's Corner

I always expect the worst. That way, bad outcomes are never as bad as what I imagined. And when the worst does happen, at least I get the strange, sad pleasure of saying “I knew it.” My trick is that I keep this whole thought process internal, so people don’t label me as a pessimist. […]

I know the exhaustion that stretches across your skin and the emptiness returning to your chest after a long year. It has been a long one. You’ve survived so much. I know you want to huddle in bed right […]

Mental Illness

Oh, those dreaded words: bridal party. Most photographers don’t like this portion of the wedding day, and rightfully so. What do you do with so many people?! It’s hard enough posing one or two people, but when you have a bridal party sized at anywhere from four to sixteen (or more), stuff gets awkward fast. […]


“If the heart is a compass, what is it tuned to?” These were the words my pastor spoke not too many weeks ago, and I couldn’t shake them from my mind. As a Christian, I like to think that God is the “True North” of my internal compass. In reality I often find that deep down […]
