Posted on March 28 2016

I am a wife, mommy, Christ follower, professional photographer, boutique co-owner and lover of all things rustic and vintage! 

30 years old and living life along side my high school sweet heart of 14 years now...married 11 years on 5.21.16!  We met the summer after our junior year and have been together almost every day since!  Brock Childs has developed into the man I always dreamed of growing old with...beyond proud to call him MINE!  He is my best friend, pushes me to be the best version of myself and loves unconditionally in a way I don't deserve.  We now have 3 little ones under the age of 4...parenthood is a wild ride full of ups and downs but also brings some of the deepest joy.  Our spunky red-headed 3.5 year old Rhett Easton is quite the charmer and is so smart and funny!  He is a momma's boy at heart but is also obsessed with all things daddy and the outdoors!  We had the surprise of our lives when we found out we were having spontaneous TWINS almost half way through pregnancy with our midwives!  Emmaline Ruby and Hazel Rose are now 16 months old { born 11.24.14 }.  They are fraternal twins and are truly complete opposites in EVERY way.  Emmaline Ruby is our sweet as could be, laid back chubby love bug who always wants to be held. Hazel Rose is a pretty little firecracker who likes to push her limits but constantly makes us laugh with her spunkiness...she also has a very sensitive spirit that melts us.  These last almost 2 years of pregnancy with twins and then raising 3 babies { Rhett was only 2.5 when the girls were born } while working full time at home/away has been the most challenging time of our lives!  Now we are on the other side and we survived some of the hardest parts of the 1st almost 18 months...a HUGE accomplishment for us!  Other twin parents said it would take us 18 full months to get into the swing of life after twins/a toddler and OH were they right!  We adore and love our babies more than life itself!  As they grow life and the years just keeps getting sweeter.

Along with being a busy momma, I am a full time wedding and portrait photographer with my hubby in Indiana where I was born and raised!  My passion grew after taking yearbook classes and learning a camera in high school and then by completing courses at our local IUPUI campus.  Brock also had the same interest, so when we got married shortly after high school { At 19 + newly 20 years old } we started our SB Childs Photography is now in its 11th successful year in 2016!  Brock and I document all of our weddings and engagement sessions together as a married team and I capture family sessions solo.  Brock also works at our amazing church { Traders Point Christian } as the creative video producer...this has been one of the biggest blessings to him and us, as working in ministry will always be life and heart changing.  God continues to impact our lives through the spiritual growth that happens at our church on a daily basis.  Brock also creates stunning still photographs and video filmwork with a good friend over at The Home Aesthetic ... A luxury photography and video company working with high end real estate firms around the United States.  

I have always been drawn to anything vintage, rustic, historic and dream is to live on a working farm in a large white farmhouse with a large porch and rocking chairs where I will watch the sunset every evening with my family :)  Our goal is to make that happen in our 30s { Which we think will be the best decade yet }!  Brock and I LOVE gardening together in our backyard in the summer and we hope to get our own chickens very soon { We go through eggs like crazy in our house }.  Some of my favorite things to do is to hit up antique stores, street fairs and farmers markets to find unique goods!  I love documenting our lives through photos...some of which are shared on my personal Facebook + Instagram feeds.  It is hard to get out for long periods of time with our 3 littles due to naps/eating schedules but as a family it is so fun to go on long walks, venture to our local parks and visit the Indianapolis Zoo.  On date nights we enjoy eating delish food while trying new local places, seeing movies and simply talking without kiddos around.  We are big fans of anything outdoors, canoeing, hiking, archery { I tend to outshoot my hubby } and just being in the fresh air!  We almost always prefer a country setting rather than urban but exploring our city is always on our list too!    

My rustic and vintage inspired style carries over into just about every area of my life from home decor, to what I choose to wear.  I have always wanted to have booths at street fairs, give clothing advice to friends when asked and even do some interior starting this boutique with a dear friend is beyond exciting to me!  I will continue to have my photography company in addition to this new adventure!  We have great things in store as we start small and continue to evolve and grow in the years to come!  I feel extremely blessed by all that Christ has chosen to give and do in our lives.
