Springfield, Missouri High School Senior Photography.

Shooting Gabriel's senior photos was a pleasure mainly for the fact that we have lots of history. I just can't believe he will be graduating from high school this year. Several years ago, I coached him in swimming while I worked for Missouri State Aquatics. I also coached his brother and shot his brother's senior photos as well. Plus, on top of all that, his father was my doctor when delivering my second child, Makenna. Gabriel is super talented in swimming and in playing the piano. It always amazes me to see kids I've taught grow up and do amazing things as they head off into college. I have no doubt that he will change the world. His whole family is nothing short of awesome!! 

It was great getting to see you Gabe and remember, 
Adventure is out there!

Lovely locations in the U.S.

In May of 2014, we sold pretty much everything we owned, moved out of our house and hit the road for a life of adventure and the unknown. We had no clue where we were going to end up or what exactly our plan was. We knew at the time that we were heading south for winter to the lovely state of Florida. Anything after that was just a toss up. Florida was home for roughly 6 months where Chris worked at Ron Jon Surf Shop and we all enjoyed everying the sunny state had to offer.

In time, it just so turned out that the RV we purchased, which was used, was a complete piece of crap. We ended up having to dump it and downsized even more into a 77' Sunliner that is 13 feet long. That's our home as of today and we're all still alive to talk about it. As of now, we are in gorgeous Colorado working for a rafting company in the summer and a ski resort in the winter. This life has had so many ups but just as many downs. It's definitely not easy but truth be told, we still wouldn't trade it. The memories we've created, the places we've seen and the people we've met have made it all worthwhile. Plus, we only live once and we kind of wanted to know we did all we could to give our kids the best experience at roadschooling all while have a ton of fun.

Here are a few of the gorgeous places we've been to in the past two and a half years. There are many more, so hopefully I'll get around to posting more of our adventures. Travel on!

Arkansas Baby Session. Cutie.

As we were traveling from the top of the states down and over to Florida, we stopped in Arkansas to see my best friend from our college swimming days. She had just had her third baby boy so of course a few photos were needed to document this adorable time. We weren't able to stay for super long but a days worth of the kids laughing, playing and us catching up, made it all so worthwhile. Even though we live so many states away, it's always nice to know that we can catch up just as we left off. It's so hard to stay so involved in each others lives when our own lives are just riddled with raising kids, work and all the school that's involved. However, best friends we stay. 

Congrats again Jet!! Love and miss ya.
