What did you study in school? What do you do for work?
I studied Political Science and Economics at Brigham Young University (with a lot of hours of Japanese thrown in there). Now I’m at home with my two babies and work part-time on this blog and a few other consulting/social media services for brands and bloggers. I wrote a full post on how I make money blogging here.
You don't look old enough to have a baby. not technically a question, but I get it a lot.
Ben and I got married in 2011 when I was 20 and Lincoln was born a couple months after my 24th birthday.
What tips do you have for a new mom?
Congratulations on your new baby! If you’re in those early sleepless weeks I’d start with this raw letter to myself at 5 weeks post partum or this post on the transition to motherhood . I also shared tips on getting your baby to sleep through the night and how to reduce tears with a newborn.
Can I use pictures from your site?
Yes, but please credit them to this blog and always link back. If you are using pictures from a recipe, please only use one or two pictures and then link back here for the recipe (do not post the recipe instructions – give them a reason to come back to the original post).
What kind of camera do you use?
Ben and I shoot all images for the blog with our Nikon D610. Until May 2015 I use a Nikon D5200. We shoot mainly with our Sigma Art 50mm 1/4 lens which is INCREDIBLE (and huge). I can’t recommend the D610 or the Sigma Art lenses enough. We also shoot wider angle with our 18-35mm lens.If you’re starting out, I’d recommend buying a camera body and a 50mm 1.8 lens. I started with the Nikon d5200 kit and once I bought my first 50mm lens I didn’t use my kit lenses again.
