Welcome to my blog! I’m Mama to Judah and Kaia, two crazy kids that rock my world. I’m a huge DIY fan who loves working with my hands. My garden is my pride and joy, my camera goes just about everywhere I go. A Million Moments is a blog about family, food, crafts, travel, and all things creative with an emphasis on stellar photography. I am passionate about vegetarian cooking and providing a full, natural and fun life for my kids the best way I know how. We live a laid back life, we love the outdoors, and trying new things is deeply important to us.
In addition to blogging, I also own a successful photography business. I have appeared as a speaker at blogging conferences and have published photography courses for beginners and professionals alike. My photography has been featured both in print and across the web, and I owe everything to a fabulous mentor who showed me that there is nothing standing in front of my dreams but myself. That’s why I do what I do, that is why I’m here today and that is why I continue to live my passion.
Here are a few fun facts about us:
My husband is from Panama, so it is extremely important that our kids know that part of their heritage. We are raising them bilingual, which made for a lot of confusion at first, but the more they understand the easier it gets.
My son is Autistic. He is an amazing little boy on a big journey, but I love every part of the way he is. Some of his favorite activities are Lego building, toy cars, and helping me cook.
I was born and raised in the south and love the outdoors. Before ultimately finding my passion in blogging and photography I have been a bartender, a restaurant server, a rock climbing coach, a gymnastics instructor, a traveling painter, a classical cellist, a pizza slinger and for a few years traveled the music festival circuit all around the states. I have loved so much of what I have done, but nothing had been quite as sweet as the life I have created with my husband and children, living my personal dream and loving every second of it.
I grew up playing the cello. I went to a super competitive performing arts high school that was residential, so I technically moved out of my parents house when I was 14. I loved it, but it took a while to figure out that ultimately it wasn’t for me.
