I don't know if it's because I've been living back home for a few weeks now, or if it's the coffee dates I've been having, but I've realized that there's just something about those friend who "knew me when..."
She was a friend of a friend in college, and I hadn't really seen her since. But last May, when I had my workshop back in Central Illinois, Lindsay came...and I was reminded again how much I just really like her. She was expecting their daughter at the time, so when she emailed asking about doing a newborn session...I didn't hesitate!!
Last week, I got to spend the night with my stepmom and their dogs while my dad was on a trip. These boys are so funny and are known for only understanding Japanese. The couple times I've babysat them, I've found myself Googling Japanese words like, "Please eat!" (as they're so polite they won't eat 'til you give them permission) and "Move over" (as Randy loves to sit on my lap)...it's always quite the experience!! :)
I drive a lot. I mean, A LOT. You should hear my car...a mechanic would say it's a muffler problem, but I think it's Dezzie cursing me under her breath. And she's sounding like a mountain man who's had a few too many whiskeys. I think she caught wind that a 30 hr. drive is coming up, and has decided to go on strike. I'm annoyed with her. She's being a brat

There are some new faces around here so I thought I'd take a moment to say hi and let you know a little about this account you're seeing 😉... My name is Tami and I've been a wedding photographer + blogger from Chicago and recently moved to Southern California to work with a photographer here (@jasminestar)!! I'm an aunt to 8 of the best little ones I know and my IG feed is covered in their beautiful little faces!! My sisters and I began a food + design blog @trio_ology where I get to indulge in all the things I love most; photography, design, food, and family!! Most of all, I'm a wanna be foodie with a quirky humor who adores God, my family + friends, and living a great and honest story.
Tell me about you!!! 💛
On my way home.
Who has 10 toes and has never made cookies that have turned out?? 😑 Guess who also volunteered to make all the cookies for tonight?? ✋🏻😅 Not smart Tams...not smart.
She's the kind of aunt where we do our hair and makeup in the same bathroom because we can't stop talking. 💕 AZ 🚗 CA

Today, I needed to breathe + think...so I just started driving West. 🌬
#tbt Being by him still makes me want to stand a little taller. And not sure the painter's smock was ever "a thing" in fashion...but I never knew. 😜
