about me


i’m stacey a lifestyle photographer, blogger, and self-proclaimed dork, among other things. you can find me in surprise! arizona where i live with my high school sweetheart {lover} and 4 kids, whom i’ve lovingly deemed “the circus.” i have made it my personal mission to teach my children {and others!} to seek out the love, joy, and consequent gratitude found in ordinary, everyday life… all while consuming mass amounts of black coffee. you can find my daily musings and creative endeavors here, in my little corner of the web : *life as you live it*

thank you for being here…i can’t even tell you how happy that makes me!

cheers *
