Killer Photographer


I wanted to introduce you to an amaze-balls Bay area photographer, because if there’s one thing we all need in our life it’s a great picture-snapper for those important shoots in our lives, amiright? Bonus points if they don’t cost an arm and a leg! Meet Ms. Kirsten Wiemer of KNW Photography. I met Kirsten several months ago when she took our baby announcement pictures and she’s been my go-to gal for pics ever since. She took our Christmas card pictures below and we absolutely loved them. If you live in the Bay area, you definitely need to hire this gal for your next family photo session or other photo shoot. She’s talented, fun to work with, and I can almost guarantee you won’t find a photog with better rates than this girl. Thank you Kirsten for these lovely holiday pics of husband and I! Turns out we love you…

It’s Christmas Eve!


Wishing you a very happy Christmas Eve! Wore this festive frock to church last Sunday and then to the Oakland Temple. I couldn’t resist busting out red, gold, and hints of fur. Woot! We’re on our way into the city to enjoy the San Francisco festivities. Then it’s home to finish WRAPPING! I’m real on top of things this year. And by this year I mean every year. Hope you have a wonderful day!
