Hey Guys, thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog! I figured I would take this opportunity to introduce myself as well as my family. My name is Taryn, I’m a 30+ yr old wife and mom of 3, Photographer, Designer, Prop maker, and lover of living the simplest and most productive life I can. I have my Associate of Arts in Interior Design from The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in San Francisco, CA. I started my Photography journey in 2010 (my 4th baby my Nikon D600) after my husband was station at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs, CO.After 6 years in Colorado and building a fairly successful business as a Newborn Photographer, we decided to move back to the Bay Area in California to be closer to family (plus who doesn’t love having to start from scratch with their business)

My husband Dane is my teammate. We set our goals together and work as a team to accomplish them. He’s my biggest supporter and the love of my life. We met and married in the same year, call it fate if you will. He works hard to support his family and still makes time to be a devoted husband and father. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner.
I have 3 kids, I know I know I’ve got my hands full. My oldest is Amélie (ahh-may-lee), she’s 7 and wants to make everyone laugh. Her love of all things kitties and passion for drawing make her so unique. My middle is my son Leland he’s 2. He’s my wild child, a ball of pure energy and chaos. His smile will melt your heart though. He’s also incredibly fascinated with cars and points them out everywhere, which makes for interesting car rides. My youngest is my sweet Talia (tah-lee-uhh), she’s 8 months old and just an angel. I called her my unicorn baby because she is just all smiles and rainbows most the time and even when she’s complaining its adorable.
Last but not least my pets. I have 4 pets, I’m crazy I know. My husband has officially cut me off from getting more pets. We have 2 cats Blimy and Mabel. They are so sweet and Blimy has been with me since before i got married and Mabel has been with us since my oldest was 18 months old. Then Came Biff our Boston Terrier. My husband told me i could only get a dog after we bought our own house and he returned from deployment. The month he got back from deployment we went and picked up Biff. That was 4 years ago. Gertrude or Gertie is our English Bulldog. She belonged to a friend of mine in Colorado and their active lifestyle just didn’t suit her breed. So she came to live with us and this girl is my soul sister. She can usually be found at my feet or watching over the baby. She is a love.
Now that you’ve met everyone let me tell you a little about my blog. I get asked all the time “how do you do it?” Im no super mom by any means but i am always searching for ways to make my life easier so I can do the things I truly enjoy. I want to share those things with all of you! Of course there will be fun DIY projects, a bit about sewing and photography as well as tons of fun stories (cause well kids do say the darndest things).
