the traveling photographer

I don't know exactly what a prayer is.
I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down
into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields,
which is what I have been doing all day.

tell me, what else should I have been doing?

tell me, what else should i have done?

I am a complicated creature.

Really, we all are. There are so many factors going into the things we do, the choices we make, the people we are.....and even, the photographer we hire. Right now, I don't want to tell you "About Me," in the typical fashion. Instead, I want to start with why.

Because when I start with WHY I do this, rather than how I do it, or what I do, then I believe you'll be able to understand me on a far great level. You'll feel in your heart and in your gut if we are meant to work together. 

My favorite memories of my dad and I are the hours and hours we spent together in the car, driving from campgrounds to hiking spots to National Parks to every cool site that particular state had to offer. When I was a little girl, my mother had told him that he needed to treat me the same way and do the same things with me as he would with my brother - and he listened. I grew up with a love for travel, clear nighttime skies, weeks of roadtripping, pouring over maps and tour guide books, and seeing the world. 

So it really only makes sense that now my husband and I are on this epic journey of traveling the United States to see all that it has to offer us. We can't wait to not just "cross off" each National Park from our list, but really dig into the bits and pieces of this country and allow it to become a part of us and our children's lives. 

My parents divorced when I was 12, so suddenly those road trips became a whole lot more special to me when summer was the only time I got to spend with my dad. I treasure the photos I have from our adventures and wish I had more. And not more photos of the landscape - more photos of us, being together, making memories. 

Adventures are meant to be remembered. 

So whether it's your wedding day - the beginning of an adventure, or just a day exploring with your best friend or your family, I am passionate about that. I care deeply about those moments. 

I think we all could use a bit more adventure in our lives. That's why I'm here. 

And perhaps, that's why you are, too.

where we've been

i'll bet you didn't know

1. I love nicknames.

I'll never introduce myself as "Meg" but it sends my heart a flutter when people call me by it.

i'll bet you didn't know

2. i'm a cryer.

My emotions used to embarrass me, but now I use them to my advantage! I anticipate authentic moments, empathize  on a deeper level, and love fiercely. 

i'll bet you didn't know

3. i'm a mormon

I am a daughter of God. 
I love Him, and He loves me.

i'll bet you didn't know

4. i put hot sauce on everything

We buy Tapatio's in bulk....and I'm the only one that eats it. 

i'll bet you didn't know

5. i hate cleaning

....and am looking forward to squeezing us all into a smaller space as we travel because less space = less cleaning.

i'll bet you didn't know

6. i have a major sweet tooth.

My weaknesses include gooey cinnamon rolls and hot s'mores  cooked over a fire (make sure those are gooey, too)

i'll bet you didn't know

7. I memorize my library card number

It's just as important - and more often used - than my social security number!

i'll bet you didn't know

8. I used to be a cheerleader

And not because I had the best toe-touches or dance moves, but because I liked being in front of the crowd and had a big smile. My enthusiasm won over the coaches more than anything else.

travel & adventure with a touch of class and romance
