Everything most important to me begins in my home: My love for the Lord, my marriage of 7 years, and my two (and a half!) children who stretch me to the limits every day! Catch a glimpse of my life, how I interact with my clients and run my business, and what a typical Saturday looks like in our home by watching my promo film!

Hello! I'm Meghan

I'm so happy you are here!
I hope you stick around and get to know me a bit!

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.

I like to tell myself that a messy house means happy kids, and that crumbs on the couch, jumping on the bed, and chocolate-smeared kisses are more important than sparkling floors and dust-free shelves.

i'll bet you didn't know

6. i have a major sweet tooth.

I believe sprinkles aren't just for kids and brownies deserve chocolate chips just as much as cookies.

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 met Adam while we were both attending school in Hawaii. I was instantly drawn to his wide smile and wavy hair.... I was also 5 days away from turning 19 years old. For our first date, he bought me a Subway sandwich and dropped me off at my house to eat it alone. Good thing there were many (better) dates after that. I knew he was "the one" when I saw how kind he was to everyone, and not just people he liked or wanted to impress. Within 3 months he had proposed to me on stage while performing as Inigo Montoya in the play The Princess Bride. Another 3 months after that, and we were married in the Logan, Utah temple.  

After we got married, we spent two more years in Hawaii before moving to the Washington, DC area for work. We now have 2 boys, with one on the way. 

Adam makes me fall in love with him again and again when he comes up behind me when I'm in the kitchen (even if I pretend I'm busy doing dishes), in the gentle way he puts our boys to bed, when we snuggle on the couch and cheer for the same people on The Voice, and when he lets me believe I've convinced him to be my permanent second shooter at my weddings.

#mroseruns

When recovering from my first birth was a slower process than I was anticipating, and when I still weighed more than I wanted to, I felt so bad about myself - but running solved that. Running made me feel powerful again. Running made me feel capable, accomplished, and worthwhile. In the beginning, I cried during my runs; cried at the beauty of the knowledge that I can do hard things. At the beauty of women's bodies and the lengths we push ourselves to, the tremendous capabilities of us all. Running did more for me than just help me lose the baby weight - Running taught me how to believe in myself again.
 
I ran my first half marathon by myself one year later. Since then, I've had a second baby boy and ran in three more half-marathons, plus a Wipe Out run and Warrior Dash (and I'm currently waiting to deliver this third baby so I can start training for the next race!)

Finding my inner athlete after becoming a mom has saved me - I'll never forget the lesson that running brings me back to myself. I also like to think that I'm teaching my boys that exercise is important, that their mommy is strong, that their mom is an athlete.
 
That their mom is a runner.

#mamarosemonday

When I first started my blog for my photography business, I struggled to know how much of my personal life I should share with my clients and potential clients. However, I found that by not sharing about my personal life and struggles as a woman, a mom, a wife, a Christian - seemed dishonest and disingenuous. When my tagline for my business is "authentic storytelling," then I know I need to be authentic in all outlets of my life! This is why I started the #mamarosemonday blog post series. Sometimes I write about funny stories that happened during the week, a lesson my children taught me, our favorite traditions, fun things to do in the area, letters to my boys and husband, things that are working (and not working!) with parenting and homeschooling, and, in general, sharing my heart and confessions as a work-at-home mom to soon-to-be 3 kids under 5 years old!
