Hi I'm Britta

I'm a wife, mother, photographer, and a Mormon.

About Me

 I spend my days at home chasing two wild boys and taking care of a constantly messy house. I attempt to cook, but my repertoire is not very large. I photograph when I can, but mostly I document my boys growing up. I love to read. Running helps me maintain my sanity, but with two kids Jillian Michaels' workouts in the basement get the job done. I am so lucky to be married to my very best friend who loves me no matter what.

Why I am a Mormon

No matter who you are or what your story is, life is hard. It doesn't go according to plan. Life can break you down and feel worthless. The gospel of Jesus Christ combats that. It gives purpose to my life. When trials come the gospel helps me gain the perspective I need to learn from trials or mistakes and build myself up, instead of letting them pull me down. I know that I have a Father in Heaven who loves me and genuinely wants the best for me. He wants me to be happy, successful and fulfilled. He gives me trials to teach me, to help me become more than I would if life was easy. I have to be a stronger person if I am going to raise my boys to be honest, hardworking, respectful men. There is a plan and it is called the plan of happiness for a reason. We are meant to be happy, and the Lord wants to help us come home.

How I live my faith

 I attend meetings every Sunday at my local ward. I do my best to contribute to the ward by serving in my calling. During the week I teach my boys the same lessons they learn at church. We have family home evenings where we gather together and help each other learn more about the gospel. We sing and pray and make treats at the end. I pray with my boys at night and read scriptures with them.
