We walked through the damp field with dirt clinging to our boots. The puppy, Patton, nipping at our heels. Sunshine mixed with a warm breeze sweeps across our pale cheeks. Skin that has been longing for sunshine amidst the wet and cold winter. The taste of spring brings a smile to my face. I like […]

Life Lessons From A Cow

the full post

It’s Friday and I wanted to mix things up a little bit. My family is the main reason why I started taking photographs. And since then, learning to shoot film has taught me to slow down and be present while I photograph them. Not checking the back of my camera or worrying about all the […]

Friday On The Farm

the full post

When I first started GPP it was definitely with the intentions of having a side hustle. Something that I could do on the weekends but still be full time mom during the week. I’d edit at night after the kids went to sleep and Tyler is a rockstar Dad so he had no problems with […]

What To Do When Your Dreams Aren’t Your Reality

the full post

Words like minimalism, simplicity, and intentional living are all the rage right now. –Yes, I did say “all the rage” and yes, I am a 90’s kid.

Living the Dream

We all have a story. A unique and beautiful time where God reveled his purpose for us. My story isn’t finished yet, but I know where I am supposed to be. And this is where it started. When we got married buying a camera just seemed like something we were supposed to do. A grown-up […]

The Creator in You

the full post

He pursues me. Washes over me and calls me by name. Written on His hands as He is on my heart. Holiness consumes. Like fire he cleanses. Magnificent in splendor. Shall I be a fool for He who holds my heart? I will sing with every breath in my lungs. Dance in the streets for […]

He Pursues Me

the full post

I am a recovering people pleaser.   I used to wear the title as a badge of honor. Or at least a badge of martyrdom. Because if I was pleasing someone else and not myself wasn’t it honorable? Sacrificial? Nope. Big fat nope. I realized that giving people, flawed people, power over me was wrecking […]

Today starts day two of Allie Casazza’s #declutterlikeamother challenge. If you aren’t familiar with it head on over to her website here! 30 days of decluttering for the mom ( or anyone! ) who is over the mess. I thought it would be nice to do a little introduction to minimalism to break down the million […]
