Hi, I’m Darcy: Mom, Photographer, Business Owner, Word Nerd

darcyI crave my morning coffee the night before. I adore all things Italy and can’t wait to get back there. My favorite moments include read alouds with a lap full of boys (when I wrote that they still fit in my lap!), our Saturday mornings at the Farmer’s Market, sleeping in on weekends because I’ve stayed up to read “just one more chapter…”, road trips, fresh babies in my studio, summer, tag team cooking with my husband in our kitchen, and curling up with my kindle.

This is my blog. I’ve been blogging since July 2005.

I’m a full-time photographer and a business owner… and I live in Iowa. (My 17-year-old self is cackling right now.) I’m also, and most notably, married (to my business partner! I know, right?) and a mom of 3 boys. Yep. Three.

I consider my time with my boys and husband the very best time of all, and love them fiercely. I adore this age and stage… I often wish I could slow down time and savor each moment of their young selves.

Awwww, I remember when they still let me dress them like this. So cute.

This blog started out as a journal of my boys’ days, and has morphed, grown and changed over the years as our family has grown and changed.

Please visit my business site and see my work, if you’d like. My husband and I have a business we named His & Hers. Clever little things, aren’t we?
