#tbt: Tales of a Third-Grade Laura

Only the coolest 8-year-olds had Walkmans. And spoiled toddlers, apparently. I don’t know how I thought I was going to pay for one for her on her sixth birthday (two months away at this point). That was obviously a lie to make me look good in front of Mrs. Kleinhans.

Maybe wait a little longer…

Among my 6 million jobs currently getting me to the next time I have full-time employment is babysitting. I’ve been doing a lot of hanging out with children under the age of 5 this summer.   And that, as you may know, can come with some great stories. Because you never know what they willContinue reading “Maybe wait a little longer…”

#tbt: Tales of a third-grade Laura

So this is a new thing we’re doing here on the blog because I found some of my third-grade writings and they’re GOLDEN. I did not likeย a couple of the kidsย across the street so I don’t know which one this is referring to. And I still wish that Spray-Can Silence was real. It would haveContinue reading “#tbt: Tales of a third-grade Laura”

Grandpa Kardashian and Grandmother Nollner

Sometimes when our immediate family is together, we talk about when my parents become grandparents one day, what they might be called.

And my sistersContinue reading “Grandpa Kardashian and Grandmother Nollner”

Self-esteem boosters with Sarah

Be honest, you thought I’d have run out of these already, didn’t you? Ah, then you don’t know Sarah. They just keep on comin’.

When I correctedContinue reading “Self-esteem boosters with Sarah”

Best Week Ever. Part 3.

The story of our week in Jamaica is one best told in pictures – for the most part – so it’s a good thing I took tons of them. However, a good portion of the photos on my camera were taken by kids there – one in particular, named Jordon. Jordon is a 12-year-old kidContinue reading “Best Week Ever. Part 3.”

Add this one to the resume

I can photograph babies. So, ya know, including that in my portfolio which now includes pretty much the entire spectrum – senior portraits, engagements, weddings, families, maternity and now, newborns! My bffs Jennifer and Matt just had a baby. Grayson! He’s adorable and awesome and I love him a lot and I’m pretty sure theContinue reading “Add this one to the resume”

My sincerest apologies

The Wedding of Rachel and Chuck. Which was amazing and perfect and I have so much toContinue reading “My sincerest apologies”
