A typical day in my life includes…

coffee FIRST! My day always starts with coffee lol. Then I get the babes up, the oldest ready and off to school, then rush home for the baby’s morning nap. The baby’s nap time is when I get a ton of work done! Editing, emails, timelines, social media etc. Then it’s some lunch and errands. Then baby girl and I pick up big brother, get home (insert more coffee here!), make dinner and/or get ready to head out for a session. After the kids go to bed I am able to get more work done before my bed starts calling me. Ok maybe I sneak in a good book or some Real Housewives before I go to sleep:) It’s a super busy and hectic life but I love it and wouldn’t trade it for the world!

I was born…

in Phoenix at St. Joseph’s Hospital on March 28, 1983.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

the desert, I love the mountains, the colors and variation of cacti and how it always bounces that beautiful golden light.

I’m listening to…

I have a very eclectic music library. I’ve loved music my whole life from Motown to Eminem.  But currently I’m listening to a lot of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis!

My family…

is my whole life! Without them I would never have started my business. My husband literally bought me my first camera and my son inspired the gift so I have them to thank for everything!

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Jesus, so many questions I don’t know where to start.

One thing I cannot live without…

COFFEE and the Bravo channel (total guilty pleasure).

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a lawyer.  I’m great at winning arguments! 😉

I’m inspired by…

the desert colors and gorgeous light, love and interaction between couples and families.

The one person who motivates me is…

Brad my husband! He’s always there with an encouraging word and never complains about working late on the weekends. He’s my biggest fan and I could never do my job without him!

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

that people are more patient with each other. I think patience would make such a difference in this world.

The perfect day would be…

if I take out all the daily things that come with being an adult my day would be perfect. I get to wake up to my husband and best friend everyday, raise my two smart and hilarious babies, work in an industry that inspires me and I am passionate about. I mean it’s pretty near perfect all ready! I guess I would add free coffee and wine and foot rubs:)

My first job was…

Starbucks barista!

My favorite escape…

reading, I was such a bookworm that my mom would punish me by not letting me read ha!

My life…

is never boring!

I’m currently working on…

setting clear goals for the next five years!

Always…

think outside the box.

Never…

forget to say thank you or give credit where credit is due!

Favorite Quote…

“See the job, do the job, avoid the misery.” – my mom (it used to drive me crazy and now I live by it!)

Biggest Dream…

just one?!?! I guess it’s that when I’m getting ready to take my last breath I’m able to say I feel content with the way I lived my life. That I can say I treated people well and raised my children to do the same. Gosh I hope that’s not too boring for ya, lol!

My Pet Peeve(s)…

loud chewing, it drives me nuts!
