ABOUT My own family
We heart Arizona. Like, a lot!
Obviously, I'm a professional photographer! But what you may not know, is that I studied music education in college and have worked quite a bit in elementary schools. I love talking to kids, and have the patience of a saint when said kids are not my own (haha). I pinch myself daily when I realize that I have the privilege to have a career that I truly love (and I get to work from home in my pajamas most of the time!).
As an elementary school principal, my hubby is knowledgeable in the area of education and has quite the passion to talk about it. He started a PBIS podcast this year, focused on gathering information on how schools are implementing this positive system (thePBISnetwork.com). He'll take any chance he can get to perform; drumming on trash cans, leading a church in worship, or speaking to a crowd. Mom runs a local wedding and portrait studio, is one of those extroverted introverts, and loves exploring the Sonoran desert. At the same school as her hubby, she runs an after school enrichment program utilizing grant funds to give kids new learning experiences!
Zach has a passion to start a YouTube channel. You'll have the honor of being his first viewers! He loves to play video games, learn about science and nature, and... talking. Always talking. His "Hey, Dad!" series is sure to be a hilarious hit, based on his random thoughts. Little sister, Grace is a stuffed animal hoarder. She would collect real animals if her mother allowed it. You'll find her running at the park, riding her bike, and whispering to neighborhood pigeons and lizards.
As a family, we love to eat good food, spend as much time outside as the desert heat allows, and venture out on spontaneous trips when it gets too hot. Each summer, we look forward to our annual camping trip!
