Goals + Dreams Hello May!


I’m pretty sure this time yesterday that I thought that I was never going to see the sunshine again.  Yes I am dramatic, but seriously, it rained for like 2 days straight and when I say rained, it actually poured.  I heard this morning that if it had been cold enough to snow we would have gotten 5 feet!! WHAT?!  Regardless I am super excited to start of the month of May with a beautiful sunshine-y day!

It’s hard to believe that this time last year Morgan and I were finalizing the details of our wedding!!!!! On the twelfth it will be a whole year that we’ve been married… that’s literally insane because it feels like it was just yesterday!  Ah!  Also, just as a side note, our wedding was published on the beautiful blog Every Last Detail, and I am super excited about it!  Make sure you stop by and see the feature!! Anyways, onto this May:

What’s going on this month:


  • I have a full calendar of shoots including 3 weddings of my own and some second shooting! Woo!
  • I also have a really fun editorial shoot set-up as a promo for something I am working on later this fall.


  • Our first anniversary as newlyweds!! (It’s weird to even type!)
  • We’re hosting a car wash to raise money for our trip to Guatemala!
  • Finals week is steady approaching, but then school will be out.. for a couple of weeks!
  • My brother-in-law Josh is graduating college!

Goals + Dreams from April:

Business Goals:

  • Consistently blog CHECK!
  • Redesign the website This project is just a slow and steady work
  • Create sample album Nope, I think I’m too much of a perfectionist… how about in June?
  • Print photos for the office CHECK!
  • Print Workflow Chart CHECK!
  • Organize the office “book shelves” and keep up with paper work Nope, the shelf isn’t hung yet.. Oops!

Personal Goals:

  • Stay on top of school work CHECK!
  • Do all the dishes before they pile up in the sink (Did we really think this one was going to happen?!)
  • Cook more for #iknowyoucarewhatwereeating posts I cooked more, I’ve just been seriously slacking on posting/capturing!

Goals + Dreams for May:

Business Goals:

  • Keep consistently blogging (whenever I check this off my list, I feel like it doesn’t happen the next month)
  • Continue to work on redesigning the website.  If it’s not done this month it just means that it was ready to be done yet!
  • Shoot my weddings well and implement the things on my workflow chart in an timely manner!

Personal Goals:

  • Finish the semester off well, not with the serious case of senioritis I always tend to have at this time of year (despite my lack of senior status)
  • Create a system that works for staying on top of the chores
  • Take time to spend with friends and family more
  • Take more personal pictures!

Wife, mama, wielder of light & joy, and capturer of moments.  I thrive off of conversation and genuine connection.  In between wrangling our kiddos, and hanging my husband, you'll find me dreaming up my next idea or creative endeavour.  It's these things that culminate to give my imagery a warmth and joy to them - the greatest compliment I could receive.

Lauren grew up spending her summers at the shore, and when she and Nick got together, she couldn't help but introduce him, too!
