    Homeschool with the Humphreys | Nina K Photography

    Everyone has an opinion about homeschooling.  Some love it, some hate it, some think it’s strange. When I heard that Alison and her husband both work from home while homeschooling FOUR children, I honestly was intrigued to see how it all goes down. I pulled up to their house near Baltimore, MD and was surprised to see a big, beautiful home, nicely landscaped with a pool in the backyard. I don’t really know why I was surprised…like are homeschoolers poor? lol.  As I was getting out of the car, I see a man pull up on a loud motorcycle, long hair, bandana and all…I’m thinking, maybe I am at the…

    Boy Mom | No Filter for Us

    Boy Mom (or parents I should say)…not an easy task.  Boys are the sweetest…but they are also a different species from girls. Sword fighting, ninja battling, handcuffing, mouth sound making, poop talking, little…sweeties! Marc and Gloria make it look easy. They’ve been together for close to 20 years. Marc has been managing the fleet of a family business for about 10 years. He’s also an awesome musician. They have lived all over the country together until finally settling back in Maryland a few years ago. Gloria is a former teacher, now real estate agent, and a DIY Queen. She lives a minimalist life…simple and full in the best way.  Oh, and…

    Army Life | No Filter for Us

    I give serious props to military families.  We live near a military base so I see a lot of families come and go and it just blows my mind how these people do it!  I am fortunate to have always lived near family, but for people like Cindy and Hersel, it’s not like that. Hersel is an active duty Soldier currently stationed at Ft. Meade, MD.  They live off base in a cute townhouse. Cindy is a stay at home mom and often holding the fort down while her husband’s away.  “We try and make each new area an adventure that is waiting to be explored”, Cindy told me. I…

    Peace, Love, & Harmony

    Single parenting. Not easy. But Laura doesn’t make it look hard. ” I’ve been called ‘Mama’ since I was 14, so becoming one was the greatest gift!”  Makes sense, because she’s one of those people that always looks out for the good of others, especially her friends. Meet Harmony Marie. Named after two friends of Laura’s that have passed away. This girl has soul. She quickly showed me how old she was (almost three). She is full of life, super inquisitive, and really smart- and her gorgeous blue eyes are a plus.  “She loves singing, learning, exploring, and anything she can get her hands on!” Laura told me. When I…

    Girl Gang for Life | The “L” Family

    “By 8am we had 3 major breakdowns…one of them was about who’s baby she was,” Cassandra told me as she carried HER baby into the kitchen. Cassondra and her husband, Brian, have 3 adorable girls…all under the age 4- two of them identical twins, and a 10 month old.  Yea, it’s a girl gang. A really cute one. They are the kind of couple that’s just cool. They are down-to-earth, real, friendly, and just cool. “We met through my college roomie! Love at first sight! Haha literally met him and came home that Monday and told everyone I met the guy that I would marry!”  Brian is in medical device…
