Hi! Oh yes, that’s me, the mom with the camera snapping photos of her kids and husband at the beach, the Washington Monument and with the Disney characters. If I had a problem, it would be over-documenting our lives a little. But I try to be cautious not to let it interfere with our fun, and the kids adore looking back at our memories in photo books.

From deciding which camera or lenses to bring, to when and where to bring your camera, and trying to remember what pictures you want to take, it can get overwhelming.

The good thing is I’ve learned a thing or two about documenting a family vacation. Over on Alamo’s Scenic Route, I’m sharing some tips on photographing your family vacation. Check it out and let me know if you have any tips to add!

Now without further ado, here are some of my favorite family vacation photos. Most of which I snapped, but the one I’m in I was luckily able to hand my camera off to someone else so I could be in it. I definitely couldn’t narrow it down to just one, and actually getting it down to 10 wasn’t easy. The theme to all of these is joy, which I think, is quite evident if you ask me.

There were a lot of things I couldn’t stand about my husband working the late shift. I hated all the worrying, doing dinner and bedtime with the kids by myself, and going to bed alone. But with all the bad parts during that time in our lives, there was a little piece of good I… read the rest.


A homeschool day in the life. Our homeschool routine.

“What do you think mommy needs?” I asked my 7-year-old daughter between homeschool lessons. It was a random question, but I knew she wouldn’t mind. She thought for a moment. “Needs or wants?” What a great reply. I didn’t expect her to take it there. “That’s a good question,” I said with a smile. “Cause… read the rest.


learning to take chances

When I was in the third grade I always got bad marks. My grades were fine, but I couldn’t control my talking. My teacher and I didn’t jive well. She was trying to teach and whatnot and I really wanted to socialize. At the end of the year she suggested I take theater classes to… read the rest.


Birthday letter to my 5-year-old-son

My sweet little boy, I can’t believe you are five years old today. This morning when you woke up on your birthday we asked you how old you are. “I’m four,” you said. We explained how you’re five now but you have other ideas. “No, I’ll be five once you sing Happy Birthday to me,”… read the rest.

Rain clouds hovered over us as we drove to our usual spot to take Spring pictures in the Texas Bluebonnets. If you remember, last year I totally missed the prime time of the season and was bummed that our field was nearly bare. I couldn’t let that happen again. This past week my husband worked almost every day,… read the rest.


Teaching yourself to dream big, encouraging your children to dream big.

“You can do anything.” I mumbled as I started out the car window in half a trance. “What?” My husband asked. “You can do anything. I really believe that. And I want our kids to know that.” “Yes, well…” he started. I wanted to dare him to debate me. “You can do anything you’re good at,” he… read the rest.


“You know what mom?” My daughter started as she was trying on different styles of shoes. “If I had to choose, I would pick comfort over pretty.” Wise words from my 7-year-old. Hmm, I wonder where she gets it from. In the bottom right corner of my vision board I have the word “style” glued… read the rest.
