What a special time in life! I know for me, I dreamed of serving a mission from the time I was a little girl. My aunt had gone to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ in Korea and I was always fascinated to hear all her stories of teaching people about Jesus Christ for the […]

The other day someone asked me how to book a newborn session when you don’t know what day your baby is going to be born. That is actually a really good question! What I typically do is when someone reaches out I ask them for their estimated due date. And then I put it on […]
