a little about mj

I'm on an exciting journey of motherhood, photography and giving back to a world that has been so good to me. I truly believe that if you trust in the learning process, TRY, destroy self doubt and then try again - that you can do anything. Now is the time to join the digital photography movement! Moms are leading the way - won't you join us?

Family with one month old baby girl

Yep, we’re in the double digits. 10 weeks. I love saying her age in weeks. It seems like just yesterday we saying her age in hours and then days, but we’ve graduated…to weeks. I have to admit I’ll be a little sad when her age will stop being referred to in weeks, but months. But, [...]
