Hi again, it’s me with another Project 52 update! Over the past few months, I have sincerely loved taking out my camera for more daily “life things”. It is good for my soul, and it is so meaningful to look back on these sweet photos from our weeks with those that we love. I used […]

My Life Mondays | No. 39 | March 2018 Recap

My friends, Bread & Wine was one of the first books I read this year, and this book is a favorite now – that’s for sure! I’ve shared my love for Shauna Niequist’s writing before on social media, and I’m falling more and more in love with her words and writing with each of her […]

Bread & Wine by Shauna Niequist | Book Review

Friends, I am loving how this Project 52 (so far!) is pushing me to get out my camera more often for life’s moments… When I first started this project, I told myself this lie – You’ll run out of things to photograph in your life… You only have a dog, and you don’t have kids, […]

Project 52 Update | Kara Behind the Scenes

Who else can’t believe that it’s MARCH?! February was a whirlwind of a month with lots of activities but still a little time for relaxation and recuperation and of course, snuggles with our Georgie girl… Wedding season will be in FULL swing in just a couple months so I’m soaking up these moments where I […]

My Life Mondays | No. 38 | February 2018 Recap

Friends, this blog post has been in my “drafts” folder for nearly two years… And since I’ve been blogging since 2013, I think sharing this blog post and my heart is long overdue. I started my blog (and business for that matter) in 2013 out of my college dorm room. I remember brainstorming blog posts, […]

Cake + Cameras Recap | Intro Photography Class

At the start of this year, I decided to start a Project 52 (one photo each week throughout the year)… On a wim! A few years ago, I completed a Project 365 (one photo each day throughout the year) on Instagram over at #evansproject365, and while it was so fun, it was also A LOT […]
