and it's a leap..


My goal for WRP has always been to help you to see the big picture of what your life is built around and what your life is built for when you look through your gallery. I want your photographs to be a part of your home, a part of your heart. I want you to be able to feel at home when you see them.


My work has been focused on simplicity, comfort and is truly evolves around the sun. This expansion of WRP is a leap to create a sense of a community-wide feeling of the same thing -- simplicity, kindness for yourself and other people, and the sun. For you to wear the shirt with a logo that keeps you grounded and spread that home-y feeling outside of the picture frame, that is the idea here. To wind down at the end of the day with one of the self-care inspired candles, or to light one of those candles when things feel too busy or too heavy, that is the idea here. This minimalistic comfort line has been in my heart for a while now, I have been thinking of when the timing felt right and how to make it all gel together. Now is the time. Because one thing 2020 and the like have taught us, there is no time but the present.


These slogans that are carried throughout this brand are things that I say to myself often and that keep my feet on the ground. Specifically, "slow down and soak it up" is something I have said ever since 2014 when I became a mom of two and when I would get overwhelmed, moving too fast and expecting too much of myself as a mom and my children as a toddler and newborn. "Slow down and soak it up." Enjoy the moment. Embrace the chaos. Look at the good among the mess. Life's not perfect, it is beautiful and humbling, and yours.


The world we are in today can be seen as full of negativity and passive aggressive attitudes, pessimistic views. I am a realist through and through. I will be the first to admit, it is not always rainbows and butterflies* in our home. We get loud. We get messy. It is organized chaos at best. And through it all, sometimes we just need a big ass sign saying exactly what we need to read at that moment, even if it is on a comfy tee shirt, wine glass, tumbler or candle. I want that for you. And I want you to spread it all around so everyone can have that moment and feeling of ease, comfort, not-trying and honesty. I hope you find more than a purchase here and that you find all the down-to-earth good feelings. Head over to the Etsy to shop!

women owned small business collaborations

The best part about the WRP Shop is that all of the collaborations are with Women Owned Small Businesses throughout the East Coast!


Full Bloom Creatives in Stevensville, Maryland creates custom art and designs with their separate and unique styles for whatever you may need from koozies, logos, decals, prints, you name it. She is my go-to girl for helping me take my all-over the place design ideas and making a gorgeous logo.


Open Air Designs in Chester, Maryland creates customized wine glasses, wedding decor, signage and so much more. She has made so many of my brand decals and is always down for whatever idea I have up my sleeve.


Pretty Wicks Candle Co. creates hand-poured, 100% soy, non-toxic candles from Baltimore, Maryland. These candles smell like heaven and I am always stocked up on my favorite scents from Tia.


Salt & Pine Co. creates handmade custom apparel from Portland, Maine. Also, her tees and sweatshirts are the most comfy of all time!


My Rose Colored World creates custom tumblers and cups perfect for personalizing your everyday drink ware!

giving back

Another big part of the WRP Shop is that I wanted to find a way to give back. There are so many different types of organizations and charities throughout not only Maryland, but our country and it was hard for me to pick just one organization to donate some of the proceeds to.


Half of the proceeds from The Original WRP Logo comfort wear line is being donated to Giving The Edge Foundation. This foundation provides opportunities for youth to engage in community service projects, athletic training and development, and scholastics.


Half of the proceeds from the You & Yours comfort wear line is being donated to Haven Ministries. Haven Ministries gives hopes by providing to those in need in Queen Anne’s County by supplying shelter, clothing, food and support. Ministries include a Homeless Shelter, Our Daily Thread Thrift Shop, Emergency Food Pantries, Resource Centers, Street Outreach, Art for Your Home, and a Warehouse with a Job Training Program.
