Mom Boss – My Boys
Utah Lifestyle Family Photographer || Mom Boss - My Boys So I have decided over the weekend that there needs to be a whole support group for people that attempt to assemble the "Easy Adjustable" Basketball hoops. I am not a lover of assembling anything really... Pretty sure the trampoline is absolute torture for me. But you guys!!! This basketball hoop is everything that is evil! It took us HOURS!!! Seriously like 6-8 hours to install this basketball hoop. And requires a set of tools that I don't think are customary to an average american household. But after all is said and done, I will say this. My boys LOVE it, so it was all worth it ...

I’m Not as Strong as I thought…
Naia Tomlinson | MelB Photography |  Logan Utah Photographer In my adult years I have always prided myself on being Emotionally Strong. I don't cry often... and so I took that as strength.This week has shown me that I have been mistaken. I am not as Strong as I thought... There is this Sweet redheaded 19 month old little girl that sits in front of us every Sunday. And when I say sit, you should know we will use that word lightly... because usually she is coming back to my bench to give me a huge smile, or trying to make her way up on the stand, or grabbing the microphones laid out for Fast and Testimony meetings.  Everyone that sits aro ...

2017 a year of Simplicity
2017 a year of Simplicity | Utah Photographer Baby it's Cold outside!! Within the last two days we have received nearly 2 feet of snow! Most of my time was spent shoveling and snow blowing. I apply the same OCD detail to my driveway clearing as I do to my photo editing. So it's needless to say, but I'll say it anyways... I am glad it stopped so that I can come inside. But I'm so glad it snowed because I have been waiting for the perfect snowy day to share these fun snowy captures! Heart eyes to the moon for this couple! 2017 The year of Simplicity! I don't typically see my strengths... I am not a super confident person. But I will say ...

Holiday Gift Ideas
Holiday Gift Ideas | MelB Photography | Utah Photographer We are less than a week away from Christmas! If there is still someone on your list that you need to get a present for, then most likely that person is very difficult to buy for. Most likely you have spent many-a  hours going back and forth between getting them the same thing you gave them last year. Or maybe some chocolate... Or one of those Horrid Summer sausages (Because who doesn't like wrapping up a Gigantic Summer Sausage like a piece of Christmas Candy. You know what I mean where you roll the wrapping paper around it and then you have extra at each end that you tie that cheap ...

Learn from my Horrid Mistake | Mom Boss Diaries 
***Learn from my Horrid Mistake | Mom Boss Diaries | 411 Locals Review*** I have meant to write this post for the past four days. But I wanted to let time happen in between the incident and the blog post to ensure I was in the right frame of mind. Once you put it on the Internet it's out there forever. And I don't like to do things in haste that can be never undone completely. 😊 I was recently doing a Mentor interview with a good friend when she asked me about juggling family life and running a business. This is an ongoing struggle for me and I am learning from things that are working out well. Also I am learning from massive failures. ...

Mom Boss Diaries | Week 4
Mom Boss Diaries | Week 4 Sick is not an option | Mom Quotes Part 1 This was not my original post topic but when life gives you sickness... you blog about it :-). Tuesday I had big plans to start posting all of my fun shoots that I have been on. Then keeping them going daily for you all to enjoy. Well about an hour before piano lessons I started feeling not so hot. And not just a little bit icky...all of the nasty cold symptoms hit me at once. I was feeling like I should crawl in bed and hibernate for the next few weeks. And because I am my own boss, that is something that I could've done. I purposefully did not schedule much work during ...

Mom Boss Diaries | Week 3
Mom Boss Diaries | Week 3 |Logan Utah Photographer The night I met a new Friend then Ugly Cried for too long. You may have noticed that I have been MIA on Social Media and my Blog. I have taken the past couple days to reflect on myself and my self-esteem issues. The ones I had all growing up that I have learned to manage throughout the years. My Personality is loud, outspoken, and even sometimes slightly inappropriate. Despite all that,  I am the kind of person that if you genuinely sit down and talk to me you will find out anything you want to know. Most of the time you don't even have to ask, I am very forthcoming with information about m ...

My Friends are Better than yours :)
A Photographer's Birthday Part 2 | Logan Utah Photographer It is time for Part 2 of the Big 32 Celebration! Tonight I spent the night Laughing very loudly... for a very long time! I have two of the best friends that a young lady (that's right... it's my Birthday so I can say I am a young lady if I want... ha ha) could ask for. We are all so different in personality that it brings up perfectly together. Our differences are some of our favorites things about each other. They offered to take me to dinner at my favorite place... which is of course HuHot... (man I should be a spokesperson for all the restaurants around town)! We started out o ...
