You've made it to my creative happy place. I'm so glad you stopped by!!
I'm Morgan. I'm a wife, a mama, and a lover of all things fall. I'm a midwest girl who is learning to love each new season of my own life...recently in the California desert, and now in the beautiful and eclectic city of Austin. I'm a Family Practice PA by day, but many of my greatest loves and my sources of sanity are creative.
I love to sing, to read, to photograph, and to write. I'm addicted to chocolate (especially ice cream!), and I'm on a life-long hunt for the perfect cup of coffee. I can't get enough of leaves that turn in the fall, thunderstorms on summer evenings, and roughhousing with big fluffy dogs.
I am married to my best friend, Matt. We met at age 6 and spent over a dozen years in trusted friendship before we finally realized that romance was a possibility. He is my rock...and the one who dares me to dream big and fulfilling dreams. He is also an amazing daddy to our little boy, Everett. Having my first child has made me realize more than ever how quickly life changes, and how desperately I want to remember every moment.
Pictures of my past and my family are my most prized possessions. They help me to remember what was and better appreciate what is.
I try to remember my mother three decades younger, the one who pressed her nose into my grinning cheek when I was 2 years old. I re-experience the butterflies I felt when my handsome new boyfriend put his arms around me and squeezed me into that laughing hug. I return to my welling eyes and the way my heart was flying as my dad smiled that heartbreaking smile while he walked me down the aisle. I inhale the sweet newborn smell and remember how fragile and full of gratitude we felt just 5 days into our journey as parents. I hear my grandpa's laugh after he was declared the victor at our family game day…and I cherish that photo as the last I have documenting his time on earth.
These moments are the reason that photographs matter.
They are why I feel so called to capture them for others. They are what quickens my spirit and calls me into the fields, into the crowds, into the homes around me to capture what is true, precious, and fleeting, and preserve it for all time.
