Hi, I’m MaryAnn!

I am the proud mother of 4 beautiful children, 2 girls and a boy + 1 in heaven, and wife to my dear husband, Brad.

My passions in life are so diverse, but here you will find me discussing clean living, home education, photography, and motherhood.

My pursuit of clean living has grown with our family, as I have become more discerning about what we put into home and bodies.

I was home-schooled myself, and consider my experience as an educator to have begun with the younger siblings I helped to tutor.  I am now teaching my own children to not only read and write, but critical thinking, logic, appreciation for nature, and so much more! 
The opportunities to teach and learn are endless!

Ever since I can remember, photography has always fascinated me, but my journey as a photographer began when I got my first DSLR in January of 2014.  Since then, my love and devotion to portrait and lifestyle photography has increased exponentially. 
My first goal has always been to document my family as it grows and evolves, but I also have the honor of documenting other’s once-in-a-lifetime moments as a professional photographer.

The title of mother was bestowed upon me by my firstborn in 2011.  Since then, my primary focus has been being and doing the best I can for the little people entrusted to me.  Motherhood has and continues to take me to the highest highs and the lowest lows.  It has tested my mind and my body and shown me that I am capable of far more than I ever imagined.  It is my heaviest burden and my greatest joy.
Moms out there reading this, you know what I’m talking about.
