hi. i'm amelia. i'm a fourth-generation texan, living in austin with my husband, our baby girl (who is, in reality, already a toddler) (i don't always tend to live in reality) (don't tell my husband), and our dog.
i'm a self-taught local child and family photographer (www.ameliamariephoto.com), i have a doctorate degree in physical therapy (specializing in infants and children), and, occasionally, i even moonlight as an event designer/coordinator. and i love doing all of that... but most importantly? i'm a mama. i've waited my whole life to become a mama, and it is better than i could have ever imagined. especially because i'm raising my baby with the most amazing (and handsome!) husband/father.
i took a long hiatus from (very occasional) blogging, and i decided to return with the "52 project" - with some other musings and ramblings and story-telling along the way.
a few random facts about me: i majorly overuse exclamation points. i try not to ever use our (or any) microwave. i love designing and decorating spaces. though i pride myself on eating primarily healthy/local/organic food, my diet often resembles that of a (very healthy) toddler. i've watched the entire series of the west wing from start to finish 2 times since the show ended. my mother and grandmother both also have red hair. i am completely terrified of roller coasters and scary movies, and do not understand at all why anyone would enjoy either. i am definitely an extrovert, though i am becoming slightly more introverted as i get older. i have a plant addiction - especially succulents.
so, thanks for reading! i'm really glad you're here! i love emails, so feel free to send me one with any thoughts or questions or concerns :)
