I am so excited for this upcoming month… but it’s going to be a little crazy!! School just restarted and so I’m a little busy remembering how to balance school and work!  My schedule has been super this semester which is actually the way I like it!  I’m also starting up a new bible study which I can’t wait for… and maybe what I’m most excited for: UNITED!  United is a conference for photographers that takes place in Santa Barbara!  This is my first time headed to the West Coast, so excited is a little bit of an understatement!  So here’s a recap of my goals for the month!

    Awesome goals Lauren! I should start doing this on a monthly basis too – I do it at the beginning of the year, but then they fade away a bit… Had a fantastic time chatting with you yesterday!! Is your new Bible study with a group at UMBC?

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.
