I am the mama behind Our Girlie Little Life. My husband and I currently live in Austin, TX, though our hearts will always be in the Northwest. We have two sassy daughters: Kate is 2 and June is 1. A spoiled golden retriever rounds out our girl gang.

Before my girls came along, I was the right hand woman of a mama-owned children’s boutique where I wore many hats. I was in charge of creating social media content, collaborating with tons of brands, managing online sales AND in store I worked on merchandising, creating beautiful store displays and buying. I recently took a backseat so I could stay at home with my girls and focus on my passion for photography. 

In my free time (haha, I know) you will find me planning shoots, editing and shopping small. Community, kindness, learning and coffee (okay wine too) give me life.
