Hey there, I’m Cass Miller. On any typical day you can find me rocking on the back porch of my fixer-upper, sipping on an iced beverage, my four children gathered around close. At least one is on my lap, with my loyal pup, Finn laying at my feet. My husband might be working from home on one of his IT businesses, while we wait for paint to dry on the shutters we built earlier in the day.
I am mostly known for my work as a lifestyle and birth photographer, a decade-long blog writer, or the girl who renovated this dreamy pinterest kitchen, in our 1950’s fixer-upper.
I am a real girl’s girl from beauty tips to birth! A favorite read on my blog have been my home-birth stories (maybe you saw my birth story here?), and the birth series of other women’s birth stories of all kinds. I have a genuine love of birth, which lead me to work as a birth photographer and doula over the years, as I was birthing and raising my own babies. Through this journey, I have found myself down a path of finding my own way, feeling fulfilled by motherhood, and the life I am creating. I’m a free spirited, God-loving, happy-go-lucky mama who has a passion for creativity, intentional living, building a happy home as the heart of the family (currently renovating our second fixer-upper!), homeschooling, traveling as much as we can, and doing the things we love to do because I’ve learned the hard way that life is too short.
On this blog, I share all things I love: beauty and makeup, home making inspiration, style, DIY. Along with pieces of my heart like my children and thoughts on parenting, our love story, bits of faith and my conversion, living happily despite anxiety & depression, miscarriage, and body positivity, and even my long-time battle with laundry!
I have inspired others by sharing my message of growing up through hardships, finding God at age 18, and later converting to our LDS faith with my young family. My story is one where light overcame darkness, and brokenness became whole again because of Jesus. Of course, that’s really all of our story, isn’t it?
I am striving each day to become deeper rooted in Christ, and who I was created to become. I am a hippie-gypsy, christian/LDS woman, who’s heart is at the center of her family. I want to become more happy, healthy, and whole in every way I can. I hope and pray that by sharing my story, I inspire others to do the same for themselves.
When I’m not busy getting one of my kids a snack (real talk), or helping Mr. Miller tackle another project around the house, I love to sit back with a good book (the book is actually an audio book, because remember: I’m a mom) and a notebook for doodling some hand-lettering. I love long walks with my dog, Finn, getting my hands busy with some sort of creative project, gathering my family and friends for a BBQ on the porch, road tripping the days away with my Mr. Miller and the four beautiful babes we created, and of course coming here to write about it all.
This blog is NOT a one-way street.. over the years I have had countless women reach out to me, offering their own stories, wisdom, words of encouragement or comfort. The readers of this blog have been a life-line to me, they’ve helped shape the woman and mother I am today, they’ve inspired and pushed me, and I cherish the journey that we’ve been on together these years. I am growing a tribe of women who are bettering themselves, living happier and more intentional lives, and are growing closer to the Lord along the way!
