4.6.22 New work in progress

Here is a glimpse of what I am working on. It is a new embroidery idea that I am going to mount to a stretched canvas that I would have normally used for oil painting. I am tired of having to work in circles. With my past working being mostly in photography and painting I miss the hard lines of the corners.

2.18.22 it’s been forever and a day…

Wow has it been a long while since I have been on here to post! I have been focused on homeschooling, and just trying to be, so I haven’t thought much on blogging about my life… or just in general.

I have been having trouble with thinking that what i am doing is good enough, social media has not helped with this thinking. So I have turned everything off including my blog, I have taken a break, I have tried to get my mind back in order and not worry about comparing myself and my children with others. But now I think that I am back, I think I know or have an idea on how to turn off the noise from the outside and focus on what really matters, my little family.

Yesterday I made art for the first time in a long time, and I have a deep yearning to make more, something that has been missing from me for a long while. I am going to embrace my longing for the bright and whimsical images that are flooding my dreams at night, I am going to allow myself the freedom that I see in my children when they do art, they just do art as it feels it should be done, not as they feel the world feels it should be done. I will learn to look at things with their eyes because they seem to be more wise than I do at times.

So here’s to new art and hopefully new weekly updates on Fridays

Taylor March 2021 Newborn Session

This session seems like forever ago, but it was only at the beginning of the month! So here is a few of my favorite photographs from this sweet baby girls session! I had the joy of photographing her parents wedding, her big sister’s newborn photos and the wedding of her Aunt and Uncle, I love this family and I’m so glad that they have asked me to be apart of it with my photography!
