Hi! I'm Vanessa. I’m the wife of the mailman, mama to two amazing rascals, lover of attempting to DIY, and addicted to photographing it all. Somewhere between opening restaurants for a highly-acclaimed chef and running after two little ones at home, I found my true passion of photography and design. I live for good food, foggy mornings and the ever ironic white couch.
I'm a Long Beach State graduate who had it all figured out until I took a job as a hostess and watched my career path make an about face. After traveling the states on the corporate team of a rapidly-growing restaurant company, I settled into my favorite position as a work-from-home mom. In between scheduling appointments for my bosses and my kids, you can find me rewriting the floor plan of our 65-year old house, hacking a design project on a budget, or trying new recipes for my seafood loving family.
When I'm not blogging here, you can find me breaking down DIY projects with Fueling Moms, capturing memories for my amazing clients at Love This Photography, and letting my photographs tell the story on Instagram.
Join me in this journey as I discover how to love this crazy life. I’m happy to have you along for the ride!
