Life Behind The Lens

*I seriously cannot go to bed without dessert (I've tried).
*I fight for animal rights, I don't tolerate breeders, and urge everyone to adopt from shelters.
*My hubby and I are vegan.
*I want to have an animal sanctuary one day. I'm going to make that one a reality.
*I could garden all day, everyday. The biggest garden on the planet wouldn't be big enough to support my obsession. 
*I've been to 18 different countries around the globe.
*I'm rarely seen not wearing boots of some sort.
*I listen to music constantly. I'm an alternative/rock kinda girl.
*My favorite drink on the planet is an iced vanilla almond milk latte. YUM.
*I was born and raised in Bountiful, Utah.
*I'm a die hard for driving manual. End of story. Oh, and I'm utterly obsessed with my car. :)
*I'm a warm weather person. Winter and snow are not my cup of tea.
*I've been married since 2009 to the most patient, supportive guy around.


Our Story

In 2008, I met my husband, Alex, thanks to a mutual friend. I'm about to get super cheesy.. From the moment I met him, I knew I never wanted to be without him. A few weeks passed, then I saw him again. All I knew was I couldn't get this guy out of my head, I needed to do something about it. So I got his number from our mutual friend (who by the way was the best man at our wedding). The day we started talking was the first day of the rest of our lives. Inseparable since then. We got engaged in October of 2009 and married in December that same year. He's the best thing I ever could have asked for. I feel so lucky to have such a supportive person in my life, especially when I keep him up till midnight talking about inspirations, weddings, and color palettes! I absolutely could not be where I am without him.


Our Kids

I adopted our little guy down below in 2006, 2 months after I graduated high school. It gets me teary eyed just thinking about how much I've been through with him and how much he means to me. We adopted our little guy up above in 2012 when he was 6 months old. He came to a shelter here in Utah from Los Angeles with about 5-6 siblings. From the moment we laid eyes on him we knew he was part of the family.
