Julia Tompkins Yoga | Fort Collins, Colorado

I was thrilled to finally be able to do a shoot for Julia Tompkins. She has become a dear friend, and she has transformed my personal yoga practice. She pushes you harder than anyone, and she knows you can do it. Her mantras are constant reminders of where our focus needs to be, "you are enough." She's tough, loving, honest, creative and hilarious too. Her beauty radiates. She's a mom, a wife and a tremendous athlete who has intertwined yoga into her own life. She admits that life is not always perfect, but you can always come back to your mat to recharge. If you are in the Fort Collins area, you must visit her classes at Mindstream Yoga. She challenges you physically, mentally, spiritually, and completely. You will leave her classes feeling renewed and worn-out yet energized. Additionally, she makes the most beautiful Mala necklaces and wraps that each of you should own. I promise you want to get to know her. She's amazing.

Namaste!

Emory

Spring break begins today for Luke + Emory. We are staying home, so I'm busy planning out the week. So far, I plan to have picnics and playgrounds trips on repeat.

Ryan | Photographic Journal

Since Ryan has the flexibility to work from home now, our morning routine is much more harmonious. It's so nice having him around while I get the kids ready for school. He typically works from my parent's house in town or the Wild Boar Coffee Shop because Emory is still here most of the day.

Emory's Room

From the beginning of Emory's room design, I have blended vintage with new. Some of the pieces were mine, some were my mom's and some I've collected. It's always changing, and it's always challenging to keep it clean. Emory changes clothes way too often, and she hasn't grasped the idea of putting them back where they belong. I think it would be more helpful if her closet had a low bar, toddler height. I regularly purge items to keep everything manageable and organzied and luckily our neighbor's daughter, Ellie, gets her clothes that are too small. I find it interesting though that there are really only a few toys that she even plays with. I just organized everything into categories to see if that would help, but so far it looks like she just has too much stuff. 

The quest to simplify continues.
