Hello! My name is Laurel. I am the one on the right, descendant of the Hutchinson Pioneers. I am happily married to the love of my life, a true knight in shining armor. He is my #1 fan and I am his, that is for sure! His recent obsession with beards, has proven useful here in the Northwest by keeping the bears away and an overall increase in manliness. I have 3 beautiful children and a wonderful grown stepson. Our life is a busy yet beautiful “mess”.
I started my early adult years as a college student and homemaker. I owned a small infant and maternity portraiture business named Babies & Bellies Photography while going to school in the evenings. The product was good, but my business skills needed improvement.
Years later, I now have a Bachelor’s degree with a major concentration in Fine Art and a minor concentration in Digital Technology. I graduated in the summer of 2013 while I was pregnant with my youngest child.
After I graduating college, I set out to find where I belong in this world as a career minded individual. I have found myself dabbling in various activities including photography, web design, graphic design, and even teaching 35+ art students. When I’m not working you can find me at home, prepare meals, wiping messy faces, supporting various kid activities and make cookies. Family is my passion and calling in life.
My life is an adventure, and I’m looking forward to what else is in store! I am enjoying these precious times with my beautiful baby girl (see Winnie Approved articles) and homeschooling my two older kids with the Classical Conversations curriculum. My days are messy and busy. Most days I have to fight for a shower, and it seems I can never get anything done. In those calm quiet moments, that seem fewer and further between; I have my blog.
I would love to hear from you, feel free to send me an email:
