Hi there!

Welcome! AND SO WE LAUGH is where I share my real life photos of raising 2 wild kids on a small farm in central Illinois.   Formerly a family documentary photographer, I now spend my days keeping the kids alive, my hands dirty, and picking up a camera, paintbrush, or lump of clay when I have the chance.  You can find all of my latest stories RIGHT HERE  and get to know everything there is to know about me by GOING HERE.

Motherhood (and life!) is hard, messy, chaotic, and wonderful...and so we laugh.
