Today’s world is telling - no yelling - at you to do more, do better and to make it all look easy.
But you’re just trying to survive these years with littles at home while you try to keep some sort of your identity intact and oh yeah, what's for dinner?
This is the place where we're both learning to simplify, and cut out the distractions that keep us “barely above water”. This is the place where you sift through all the fluff and get down to what you need to thrive (not just survive).
Sometimes doing (and having) less
leads to living more full, let's give it a whirl!
Recovering overcommitted, scatter brained and exhausted mama. It wasn't that long ago that I was giving my 2 year old an ipad with dump trucks on youtube so I could get a shower in. I was falling into the couch at the end of the day completely wiped out after a day of spinning my wheels and going no where...
What I realized was that I was driving through more than cooking in, chasing fad diets, running a full time business while trying to be a full time stay at home mom and living like I was just trying to keep my head above water.
I help mamas find what's essential to them and cut out all the rest!
As my photography business (and kids) grew, I realized something had to give. I started by cutting out screens in our house (an amazing simplification hack) I got strategic with our routines and rhythms in the home and starting cutting out what wasn't essential.
It wasn’t easy but I learned a lot about cutting out and simplifying in order to use my (nap) time wisely! From house chores, to meal prep, to healthy living, to photos, to routines and business.
Find simplification and find joy, find the life you have permission to live!

The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry
It might sound dramatic, but honestly (I had) a constant sense of dread thinking of how many photos I had to organize...
The Photo Organization Plan is so easy to navigate and you get a huge sense of accomplishment with every task you cross off.
My biggest struggle was having a plan... but with POP I now have clear instructions.
I felt accomplished going through old photos and have a plan for moving forward.
