Photography Gigs

Hello, again! Today I have a very exciting update!!

In the past few months, I have had the wonderful opportunity to take a couple’s engagement photos, my friend’s senior photos and pictures of two siblings!! It has been so fun and I am so blessed to have been asked to do them! ❤

I am working on starting my own little photography business!! I have a website, and will hopefully be getting an Instagram, email, and maybe Facebook!

Until I officially launch those here is a snippet of the pictures I have taken, more will be on the website and socials.

saying goodbyes

Hello friends. This is going to be a different type of post. I am going to be talking about how I had to say goodbye to my youth pastor and his family as well as my best friend, all within just a few days.

First some context. So on July 31st I brought my friend Kyler to youth group, and my youth pastor said we were going to be talking about missions, I was excited to hear what he had to say about missions. Then fast forward about 10 minutes, we found out that he and his family were being called by God to move to Montana, in about two weeks.

It was so sudden and unexpected. While I was so sad and in shock, I was also very happy for them and the new adventure for their family! As well as seeing them listen to God, even though it was a hard change for their whole family, as well as the church.

He was basically the only youth pastor I ever had. I really love his humor, good teaching, and so much more! I could truly be myself with him, and I have a hard time being myself with a lot of people.  He could always make me laugh, and our banter back and forth was the best, I could honestly go on and on about things I miss about him and his wife. Such amazing Godly people! ❤






Because he had such a great impact on my life, I know for certain he is going to change many kids’ lives in the small Montana town where they are now living. He and his wife are now both teachers at the middle school, as well as the youth pastor/leader of a church there. I know God is going to use them in so many ways, but I miss them so much here in Colorado.  ❤

So on August 11th, I had to say goodbye to them. It was really hard. I cried a lot. And honestly, it still makes me really sad. I know I shouldn’t let it, because they are not dead, haha! They are obeying God and I really respect that a lot. I just miss them. The laughter they brought. Their loving hearts. Just everything about him, his wife, and their 4 kids, I miss a lot.

Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Eckert, for being such wonderful role models! I miss you a lot and cant wait to see you again! I am so very grateful that God brought you into my life. You both meant more to me than I ever even realized. You still mean a lot to me and are still leaving an impact on my life. Showing me that listening to God is always worth it even if it means a big change. Love you guys!!! ❤


Then on August 14th, I had to say goodbye to Kyler. He has truly become one of my best friends, and even though he was only in town for about 2 weeks, and now he is only in Indiana, I miss him. We still text every single day and call/skype weekly. Thank God for technology! 🙂  But I miss hanging out with him in person.

I miss him being in Colorado because he is someone who actually wants to hang out with me (and my siblings). I dont get to do that with friends very often, so him taking the time to do so meant a lot to me. Let’s just say he makes me feel very special and I can not wait till he comes back next summer! To go on more adventures, laugh, talk, make memories with him.

Thanks, Kyler for always being there for me, despite the distance!!


Winnie the Pooh sums up saying goodbye really well. 🙂


What did you think of this type of post? What was the hardest goodbye you had to say to someone? ❤

Jeremy Camp – Still Alive (Lyric Video)

We may not always know where we are going, but God knows. We may be afraid, but God has everything in control. No matter what we go through, in life, God is still alive and has a plan for it all.
Give God control over your life.

YB – FIRE EMOJI (Official Music Video)



We are the church with the truth still down to run with the troops run through the city praying for all of my woes Jesus the one with the juice covered in blood I remember many days
flipping out not a somersault letting me get the best of me pride came like phone calls
voicemails or messages turning up to what the level is time ticking on my watch God’s grace was like medicine
now I’m on a mission for reaching my neighbor impacting my city and that is the work it is finally a vision I’m casting a net for the people who listen and I gotta get

it sticking to business showing the lost the path a path to redemption bringing the hope to the hopeless hoping they get it bringing a light to the streets knowing they miss it

Uh God on my side and I’m taking these shots like I can not miss surrendered to Christ and gave Him my life He covered the bid leading a generation back to the Father. I’m gone do this til I die. I know what permanent is.

All about my father business I know I’m committed to bringing that new balance lace the game like tennis shoes running in this marathon don’t know if I got plenty time
distractions keep us tied up, its ribbons at the finish line running through the blocks like I got coaches I’m prepared to ride the wave if I see a tide approaching That’s my father. He won’t tarnish please don’t bother bless my wife lead my daughter I’m not worried about my chapters when I personally know the author and with all these opportunities

I pray the world see the church and see unity I pray the world see the body and see you and me black or white any background because every puzzle needs a different piece

on a waaaveeee soldiers praaayyyy we in the system but we cut the games boy we don’t plaaaayyy we on the field it can get real these are the words from the general many identical I pray I never speak on my own merit bringing nothing but winning truth

mask off time flies past all God when I do your work make it count like flash cards like nascars we drive your message He accepted the rejected He got love for broken people my God heart as big as Texas aye yay yay

we okay God has blessed my state of mind REALER state identity is in the blood DNA I’m in the zone His spirit strong we barely win when we play it safe aw yeah yeah

“I’m not worried about my chapters when I personally know the author” That is my favorite line in this whole song! Just a great reminder that God is the author of our lives, and we need to trust Him fully!!

This song has got the beats and the deeps.😁 What was your favorite line of this song?

7eventh Time Down – The 99 (Official Lyric Video)

He would leave the 99 to find YOU. He would search the would world to find YOU. He died on the cross for YOU. He loves YOU always!

“What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? And if he finds it, truly I tell you, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off.”

Gotta family I’m tryna be the leader that they need Be the daddy that they need, yeah

(Steven Malcolm) Okay, look at me now, look at me now I preach on the beat, I’m living my dream, yeah yea
Come to think about it never knew I could Aye, make it on out that hood

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!

What did I check off my bucket list this summer?

Happy September everyone. Well, school has started up so summer is over. Time for an overview of what I accomplished on my bucket list for this summer!


Blog. Of course, I hope to blog much more this summer. 👩🏽‍💻

ISH. Sadly I barely blogged this summer until mid-August, but I think a little break was needed.

Naturally Curly. I would like my hair to be just my natural curls more often, and less straightening and curling. 


YES. I wore my hair with natural curls almost every day. I think I only straightened my hair twice this summer! So I am quite proud. 

Sandals. I want to wear my sandals more and get a fun tan line. 🙂


YES. I wore my sandals a lot. I have feet problems, and these shoes actually don’t make my feet hurt as quickly! Though…I have gotten a few blisters from walking in them too much. 😛 

Cold Treats. Eat lots of popsicles, ice cream, slushies, etc. 🍧🍦

YES. Didn’t get a ton, well I guess 1 slushie, 4 iced coffees, and a good amount of ice cream…so I guess I did complete this. 

See more sunrises. I am a night owl and like to sleep in. But I have found out that I do enjoy sunrises and being up earlier. 

NO. This is a sunset…I saw a lot of beautiful sunsets! 😛 But never woke up early enough to see any sunrises, expect a few at the very beginning of the summer… oops. 

Watermelon. Eat lots of yum, yum, yummy, watermelon. 🍉


YES. I could have eaten a lot more, but I got a good amount. (This photo looks weird, but the sun was soo bright) 😛 

Laugh & smile. Laughter is so amazing, I hope to laugh a lot this summer. A simple friendly smile can change anyone’s day. 😀

Laughter is always 100% when hanging out with this goof. 

LaCroixBesides, water…this is the best refreshing beverage everr! 

YES. La Croix makes life better!

Tan. Get a nice tan but no lobster sunburn this summer, please. 


YES. I feel like I got pretty tan this summer, and no sunburn at all, yayy! 

Watch my favorite showI love Christopher Robin so much!! I have already watched it twice, and random parts of it many times. But I want to watch it all the way through again. ❤

YES. Ahh, this show never gets old. Such cuteness. 🥰

Driving. Get better at parking, city driving, night driving, and pass my driver’s license test!! 🚙

YES. Well, I have gotten better at driving…but not good enough at coming to complete stops at the stop signs to be a licensed driver. 🙄

YouTube. My bro and I might start a YouTube channel, we shall see. 

NO. We haven’t started one yet…but might at some point in 2019. 😀

Cousin time. Hang out with this goof. We are always talking, laughing, and being funny. Want to hang out with you lottss! ❤


ISH. Only got to hang out 1 on 1 with her once, but got to see her a few other times. But want to hang out again soon! 💞

Youth Group & Bible study. Enjoy time, fellowship, and fun with the youth in my church, and grow closer to God. 

YES. Got to hang out with this sweet girl and be goofy at our church garage sale! 

Go barefoot. My cousin and I have started taking walks, barefooted, painful, and maybe slightly dangerous. But oh, so memorable, and fun. 😀 


NO. Well a few times at the beginning of the summer, but then I was too focused on getting my sandal tan line to walk with barefooted, on walks. Though I did just walk around outside barefoot sometimes. 

Babysitting & Job. I hope that I will be able to do more babysitting, and possibly try to get a job, or start babysitting more full time. 👶🏼🧒🏼👧🏼

YES. Ha, crazy times. But also so fun, and I love the cuddles! 

Friends. Hang out with friends, I don’t have a ton of super close friends, but hopefully, I can change that this summer and strengthen the friendships I do have. 💞

ISH. Didn’t hang out with many friends besides Kyler and my cousins, but they are all dope so it chill. 😎

Kyler. Speaking of friends, Kyler who is one of my great friends was one of my best friends in my childhood. He lives overseas and is coming to the states for college, and he will be in CO for a few weeks. Can not wait to see him and make more memories like we did during our childhood summers. 🎊

YESS. Him, my siblings, and I got to hang out a lot as well as just him and I twice, so that was wonderful! Really miss him being in CO and getting to hang out. 

Move. Our house is under contract, we have to be moved out by the end of July, now we just need to find a house to move into. This will be a busy part of the summer, but exciting. 😀 🏡

YES. We have been living in our house for over a month now already, and it has been great!!

Finish this book. Yes, I still need to finish this book so I can finish that blog series and finish my review. As well as learn from the wisdom of Kristen and Bethany. 🙂


NO. Oops! I feel bad about this, and I will really try to get it done before 2020. 

Mini Golf. It’s something we do every summer, usually with the youth group and our cousins. I am not too good at it, but I always have fun! 

Yes. Didn’t get to go with our cousin which was sad, but did with your youth group and that was a lot of fun! 

Enjoy the outdoors. The winter months here in CO are so long, and the warm summer months are very short, so I would like to get outdoors and enjoy the warmer days more. 

ISH. Not as much as I would have liked, but whenever I did it was fun. 

Photography. Yes, I want to, and know I will take lots of photos this summer! 📷

YES. I took lots and lots of photos on both my camera and phone. I also got to take someone’s engagement photos! ❤

Hike. This has to do with photography and getting outdoors. I am not a very athletic/outdoorsy human, but I do enjoy taking nature photography a lot, so that is good motivation to go on hikes. 🗻

Only went on one hike sadly. 🙃


Pretty glad about what I accomplished this summer on my bucket list. What did you do this summer?



A Pretty Epic Wednesday

August 14th. It was a really good day. Hard in some ways, but a day to remember for sure. It got to spend many hours with one of my best friends, Kyler!! He was leaving the next day for college in Indiana, so we wanted to spend some time together.


We met at the movies. Yes, we went to see Dora as teenagers. But we thought it would be fun nonetheless. 


YES, I loved this. 🦊


Young Dora and Diego. I forgot to take a picture of the movie when they grew up, but just look it up. 😛 


There was a scene where they turned into their animated characters, that was really fun/funny!! Overall it was actually really good! Some cheesy moments, but it was good. I would probably watch it again. They did Dora good. 🙂


After the movie, we into Dicks Sporting Goods and Kyler just had to buy this bouncy ball, haha! But it ended up being very popular later at youth group, so that was worth the $3. 😀

Kyler and I walked around after Dicks just talking and also sat on a bench and talked. That was nice. 

Then we walked over to Five Guys for dinner. Kyler loves that place, and I had never been so we were like why not?!

I got a pretty simple burger, but it was really good! 🍔

After we ate we went over to Best Buy to look around, we both like electronics so that was fun. Look at that huge TV!

After that, my parents picked us up and we headed to youth group. We had a campfire outdoor night. Here we were doing worship. 

It was a little fire, but still did fire, which is what you need for smores. 

The moon was really pretty. 🌕

Some of the boys started playing frisbee, which made Kyler happy because he loves frisbee. He kept impressing people with his skills. 😎

Some of the boys got the wonderful idea to have a contest with throwing a marshmallow up high then catching it in your mouth. Kyler did that too and succeeded. 😛 

Then we all sat around the fire and talked about our summers, changes in the youth group, and the school year starting. It was nice. 


After youth group we took Kyler to his grandparents and said our goodbyes, that was very sad. I hate saying bye. But it was a great day and I am so glad we got to spend it together! 🙂



A Fun Summer Evening

One evening this August we went over to Kyler’s grandparents for dinner and to just hangout. I took some pictures, so here you go. 🙂


Look at this beautiful rose! 🌹

Kyler taught us this cool game called Carrom. It was really fun…i am not too good at it though. 

Any guesses on what this is?! 

After dinner, Kyler, Silas, and I went on a like walk to a place Kyler had discovered the day before. 

Nice view of Pikes Peak. 🏔️

Ahh cotton candy clouds

Climb boys, climb…I will be there in a bit. 

Please dont die. Thanks. 

I love rocks like these, so neat!! 

r e d   b e r r i e s 

Can you spot the two birds? 🦉🐦

Funny story. We were walking along and Kyler said “Oh neat is that a hawk?” and I looked up and only saw the owl and I got all excited because I love owls, then I saw the hawk too and  said “that is an owl and a hawk!” and for the longest time Kyler could not see the owl. Then I texted my mom this picture and she said “morning dove?” she only saw the hawk and thought it was a morning dove. 😛 

Okay, this is really blurry sadly. But there is a story to this as well. 🙂

  This was in our old neighboorhood (before we moved into the country) and we used to walk on this street and I was remembering that there was this bench we used to stop at. Silas and I were arguing about where on the street it was…then I saw it, and I pretty sure I may have screamed out of excitement. 😛 No clue how I managed to get such a blurry picture or turn this into a whole paragraph, but oh well.


Have you ever played Carrom? 



Mini Golf with Youth Group

Silas and I went mini-golfing with our youth group on August 2nd. It was a lot of fun, I am not great at it but it is still a fun way to spend an evening in the summer with friends.


Let’s go, Josh, dont let Jeremey distract you! 

Two of us got blue balls and two of us got pink, that was confusing. oops. 😛 

Oooh yay, good job bro. 😎

Yes, all 3 of those balls got stuck in that lovely place. 

{password- golf}

Great interview Josh!! Sadly I only thought to record halfway through, it was funnier at the beginning…but hopefully, you still enjoyed. 


Have you ever gone mini-golfing? ⛳



Adventures at Ikea and the Mall


On Monday, August 5th my family (excluding Ruby) and plus my friend Kyler went up to IKEA and an outdoor mall to do some shopping for our new house and shoes and just for fun.

IKEA here we comee!!

Testing out couches. 🛋️

My dad really enjoyed trying out many of the chairs.

tsk tsk, Kyler acting like a little child.

Leaving IKEA now, it was fairly successful. We didn’t get everything we had hoped for but it was still a lot of fun. Silas and I went down this while the other 3 went down the stairs…our “ride” was much more relaxing, even though we had to run to catch up with them afterward. 😛 


For dinner we went to the amazing Smashburger!

We all had to try on different hats at the Colorado store!  👒🧢  I have lived in CO my whole 17 years of life and have gone inside many CO stores, but alas still haven’t bought anything Colorado. 😦

Yes, we went into Bath & Body Works to wash our hands and tested other things. That was actually a lot of fun. 😀

Then we went into the Yankee Candle store and smelled a lot of interesting smells. 🕯️😝

Leaving the mall there was a beautiful sunset, man I love CO sunsets! 

Just look at that! So pretty. ❤


Have you ever gone to IKEA? Do you like to go into stores like Bath & Body Works or candle stores?


Nature Photography

These are some of the last photos I took out on our property at our old house. I miss just being able to walk outside and have 5 acres to take nature pictures on, but I also really like our new house, so I guess it is pretty even. 🙂

Tori Harper – Revival (Official Lyric Video)


It’s like I’ve opened my eyes for the first time
And everything in the world has new life
And I’m so overwhelmed to feel such a feeling
Deep breath and my heart starts beating Want my life to have deeper meaning

I want to be brave
I want to be bold
I want to be proof
I want to be love
I want to be hope
I want to be true

There’s a fire getting stronger its starting in my soul
I want to be brave I want to be bold
I want to be A revival revival

It might be oceans away or down the street I want to go where you lead faithfully

With a light that shines and brings with it freedom With the power to break through the ceiling It began when you gave me the feeling

I want to be brave
I want to be bold
I want to be proof
I want to be love
I want to be hope
I want to be true

There’s a fire getting stronger its starting in my soul
I want to be brave I want to be bold
I want to be A revival revival

Be strong take heart we never have to be afraid
Let go of fear He’ll never walk away

Be strong take heart we never have to be afraid
Let go of fear He’ll never walk away

I want to be brave
I want to be bold
I want to be proof
I want to be love
I want to be hope
I want to be true

There’s a fire getting stronger its starting in my soul
I want to be brave I want to be bold
I want to be A revival revival

We need to be bold for God! He might call us to Africa or Montana, but we need to be willing to go where He calls us, and be bold, brave, loving, and trust Him.
Be strong, God will never walk away from you no matter where you are.



Moving Adventures

Starting July 26th we started moving out of our old house. We couldn’t move into our new house till August 10th, so we had to move in with my mom’s parents till then and our move extra stuff, like furniture and such, into a storage unit and my dad’s parent’s basement. 😛

The evening of the 26th some of our family came over to help load up our UHaul with boxes of stuff to take to our storage unit. 

We got a huge UHaul…kinda too big. 😀

Cousins! ❤

Cousin moving crew, we rocked it y’all! 

(The next morning) Yes, gotta clean even the ceiling. 

Wow. Lots of different emotions here. Riding with my cousins to the storage unit. Exciting times. 

I was slightly distracted at the storage unit and forgot to take any pictures, but here we are trying to move our couch into my grandparent’s basement.


After that, we all went back to my mom’s parents to have pizza and relax. That was nice.


Now fast forward to August 7th. Our grandparents brought Chick-fil-A to our new house for dinner, since we had as we started painting closets and cleaning. 

Now it is August 10th. We are driving in the UHaul to the storage unit to officially start moving into our new house! 

Let’s go, Uncle Marco! 😎

This time around we got a smaller U Haul.

Woo ride time!!

My great friend Kyler came to help us move, and we rode with my grandparents from the storage unit. Yes, taking selfies in a moving car doesn’t work too well. 😛 

After we had unloaded the UHaul and cars we went out to the park and played groundies, while waiting for the pizza, that was a lot of fun! 

Good work, men getting that over the fence. 🎊

After lunch, us kids played spoons! 🥄

After most of the people had left some of us kids decided to walk to the nearby gas station to get some cold drink, that was a fun adventure. 🙂 

Moving is a lot of work, but I am loving our new house and loved hanging out with family and friends during the moving process. 🏠📦🚚❤️

Boy he let me out of that cage now I’m to go crazy Spazzing I think yhall better move out the way Yea I’m feeling this energy, now that he live in me Having the time of my life yeah now that I’m free Yea that bass knocking and the crowed rocking
I’m taking off like I’m a rocket Sweat dripping and my dreads shaken Start crowd surfing naw I ain’t playing Form a mosh pit it’s getting lit Might mess around and do a back flip throw my
Hands up And do my dance yup I think it’s time to live it up

We gone live it up up up up up up

We gone live it up up up up up up

This time We come alive
Full glory It’s time to shine

A new life Live in the light
Now that we’re free
Light up the night

Now that we up there no need to come down

We gone live it up up up up up up
We gone live it up up up up up up
We gone live it up up up up up up
Now that we up there no need to come down

I’m up in the clouds I’m up in the clouds
I’m up in the clouds I’m up in the clouds
(Now that we up there no need to come down)

God brought each and every one of us to this Earth for a reason, and we should live it up and bring Him glory. Don’t let Satan bring you down, let God bring you up.



Fun times with my cousin!


Heyo! This is the first of many posts I will be posting within the next few weeks talking about fun things I did this summer. The first week of June I had an epic sleepover with my amazing cousin Amelia. We laugh so much, it is wonderful. Let’s see what crazy things we did together.

We went on a walk and came across this interesting book drop thing. I see it as a dino, what do you think? 🦕

We walked to Walgreens. 

We bought some less cancer-causing items, like sugar-filled coffee drinks and Reeses. 

Okay, we sat in their kitchen just talking, laughing, and taking pictures for over an hour I believe. That was fun. 😀 

Yes. We are strange. 🥳

Oooh, we are so cool! We stayed up very late that night taking more funny selfies and just chatting, mostly laughing really hard and trying to not be too loud. Then we woke up early to go to garage sales with her mom.

Gotcha. 👌🏼

Yes, she is much taller than me, and yes I don’t know what I am doing with my fingers. 

After garage sale shopping in the hot weather,  we got some delicious refreshing summer poison, aka slushies. 🍧

After lunch and slushies, we went on an adventurous barefooted walk, fun times. 

After our walk, we came back and crashed in the cool basement and watched a show. 

That concludes our sleepover, now for some other random pics from hanging out with this girlie throughout the summer. ❤ 

Yes, she is cute. Yes, that is a picture of my feet. Yes, we went on another walk barefooted.

True convos with my cuz. 😛 ❤                                                          

We took so many goofy selfies that day. Such funn! 


Love you, pretty girl. 😇

Ooh yeah. ✌️🏼


I didn’t get to hang out with this goofball as much as I would have liked this summer but hoping we still can even during the school year.

Never a dull moment when we are together. Great hugs, and great laughter. 🙃❤️

Luv ya Ameano! 💕
