keeping busy & other things of late

chas and i spent this past weekend up in island park, idaho (just outside of west yellowstone) shooting a family film. we stayed in the sweetest little vintage cabin right on the river, woke up early for bird watching, spotted a momma and baby moose (twice!), ate ice cream cones while hiking through the forest, and played on the dock. we are so excited about all the amazing footage we were able to capture for this film- but then again, it's not hard to get great footage when you're in such a magical place!

i'm also staying busy with photo shoots and can't tell you how much i'm loving it! yesterday a friend emailed me and asked how i stay on top of it all with our film business, photography, and my life as a wife and mother. i told her that i'm the type of person that thrives when i'm working hard and staying busy. i love having something that i'm focused on building and learning and kinda go crazy if i feel like i'm not meeting those needs for myself. chas and hero, of course, will always come first but that doesn't mean that i don't take advantage of hero's stellar long naps during the day and edit to my heart's content!

speaking of hero, she turned 1 yesterday! i cannot even believe it's been a whole year since becoming a momma. today i'm gonna do a little cake smash photo shoot with her and then, on saturday, we're having a small family party for her at my parent's house. i'm also working on putting the finishing touches on her 1 year video so keep your eyes peeled for a whole lotta cutest coming your way!

and one last thing. i was able to finally spend some time on my photo blog yesterday and did a lot of updates. so if you're curious about pricing and whatnot, be sure to check it out!

have a great day!

I'm so proud of you for finding your passion and running with it. Your daughter has a lot to look up to. And happy birthday to little Hero!

I'm totally with you on needing to feel like you're staying busy and moving forward, even as you're a wife and momma. Great job on the photography and good luck :D And happy birthday Hero!

What a gorgeous photo. I grew up spending summers near Island Park, and it's heaven on a summer morning or a late evening.

Beautiful photo! I grew up a half hour away from Island Park and miss it like crazy. Glad you were able to take a vacation!
