Hi there! We are Matt & Nicole, high school sweethearts with three girls ( Emilia (4), Adelyn (2), baby 3 due June ), one furbaby ( Bailey ) and two birds ( Sunnie-Rose and Mauve ). Our family is one that is saved by grace through faith, we don't have it all together, but we work hard + play hard + love unconditionally. Our hearts are to share our journey with you from the ups to the downs, sharing things that work, and don't work within our family unit. We are constantly working to grow in ways that keep our family healthy ( and sane ). On our site you will find stories about applying what we have learned and know about topics such as applying the Bible into every day life, marriage, parenthood, financial decisions, minimalist lifestyle, or healthy eating. Also, we will be sharing our favorite products with you ( which by the way we are very picky about, Nicole researches every-thing and Matt mainly focuses on researching tech items and automotive modification items plus some really geeky stuff like pricey light sabers -haha ).
We have been together for 14 years out of those, married for 8 and we have seen the underbelly of an unhealthy marriage - something we do not wish for anyone - so we are excited to share some great tips and series with you all. We have now been parents for 4 years with a christ-centered yet positive / gentle parenting approach. Nicole is a work at home mom plus homeschools the girls - photography and counseling is her passion. Matt works in the IT field - superheroes and modifying vehicles are his passion.
We want to encourage you that it is worth the effort to be educated and make decisions that are best for your family. We realize what works for us may not work for everyone, but we will share our process on how we arrive at our decisions! We do not judge and ask that you not judge us - because we definitely do not have it all figured out. We are, in essence, two people with eyes on the Lord who fell in love and are adventuring through this life together.
We enjoy collaborating with brands that connect with our family in an authentic way. With 12+ years of photography behind our belts, we are able to provide high quality lifestyle images for you to use for marketing purposes - not just your Instagram feed. If you are interested in connecting or learning more about what we can offer your brand, we would love to hear from you!
