  • Rose Colored Lenses

  • Several months back I started something called the "Wholehearted Newsletter." It was a heartfelt attempt to utilize a consistent and easily accessible medium for spreading encouragement and love. I had the best of intentions, you know... I think it went out a solid 3 times. Maybe 4. In other words, it was a wi [...]
  • A Higher Calling

  • If you know me personally, or if you have ever read some of my more personal blogs, then you know that photography isn't my main thing. Don't get me wrong - I absolutely love it! - but it isn't the most important thing in my world. That place is reserved for something (or someone) much higher. His name is Jesus. [...]
  • A Genuine Response

  • I love social media, but I think it has created a beast in our culture that is slowly (but oh so surely) eroding our confidence, contentment and communication as unique and beautiful individuals.  How is it managing to do this?  Well, it has taught us that the best way to respond to an idea or opinion is not to simply [...]
  • Nothing and Everything to do with Photography

  • When I started the vlog a few months ago, I wasn't really brave enough to make it what I most wanted it to be.  Today, that all changes.  Take a couple minutes, and hear how my mission in life and who I am has absolutely nothing and totally everything to do with my photography, all at the same time... And I do apolo [...]
  • A Thousand Words

Last week I snapped a picture of my kids with my iPhone, and that image is now the anthem of this season.  As it often goes, it isn't really just the ima [...]
  • The Awkward In Between

  • It has officially been 10 days since we left Twentynine Palms, California, and 9 days since we landed in Honolulu.  In some ways, it feels like so much longer already.  I'm thrilled to say that we are picking up keys to our rental home this afternoon and moving in tomorrow.  I'm ready to start sinking some roots on thi [...]
  • When Rejection Stings

  • A few weeks ago I submitted to an online organization to be considered for their "pro" status.  I did it on a complete whim of courage, confidence and crazy.  I've been waiting super patiently (definitely not) to hear back, and this morning I finally got the email. "Dear Erin, Unfortunately we are declining your sub [...]
  • The Post I Couldn't Write

  • Although this blog is new, blogging in general isn't a new thing for me.  I started writing and posting 7 years ago when my husband and I were in our little church in Northern Wisconsin.  Writing was (and is) an incredibly therapeutic thing for me...  There's just something relieving about getting all of my thoughts ou [...]
