This Valentine’s Day may not have been the most romantic one we’ve experienced in the last 11 years - in and out of 4 airplanes with a full day of traveling under our belts - yet I wouldn’t trade one little bit of it. I’m still head over heels for this guy and all that he pours into our lives. MD, I love you, this life we’ve built together & all the life we still have yet to live, hand in hand. You’re my favorite human in the world. Happy Valentine’s Day 💕
My sitter was here today so that means I got all the things done! & it also means batch blogging baby! These cute-sy lovebirds are gracing the blog this fine evening and boy do I love them! It's my ultimate joy when my couples become friends 💕 You know the drill...#linkinbio
Woke up with the strongest urge to be by the ocean today. Could be the -10 wind-chill going on here but it's my fave and I dream about a cozy little place to call home right by it some day. Good thing we’re headed to Mexico in just 10 sleeps! More than ready to have my freshly pedicures toes in the sand & copious amounts of pinã coladas with the best ceviche of your life delivered straight to my chair. Let the countdown to Mexico commence! #tminus10days
I’m discovering the greatest of joys in photographing the simplest of things. ✨
Creating these lovebirds timeline today & I'm all WHY haven't I blogged this yet?! Note to self: don’t hog the lovely stuff!
Doing all the boss lady things while my littles are off with their Gam for a bit today - after a lonnnnnng birthday weekend it feels good to get back into the swing of normalcy, anyone else feel me? This knock-ya-socks-off shoot is up on the blog today featuring the dreamiest dream team and I hope it gives you all the warm & lovely feels (emphasis on the WARM!) this chilly morning. Now off to finish editing my face off - happy Tuesday sweet friends!
Our spicy, sassy, sweet as a peach Harpie girl. She came barreling into the world letting everyone know she was here and hasn’t changed a bit. Always with a doll in her hand, curls bouncing around in ever which way, full of excitement, delight, and warm fuzzies about life. She’s our rainbow, the answer to so many prayers, a girl after the hearts of all the people around her. Happy 4th Birthday Harper Nina! 💕
My list of favorite things to photograph has evolved so vastly over the last couple of years. I care WAY less about the surface stuff and more about the real, deep stuff. & now that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate the pretty - designing and curating beautiful things is a treasured hobby of mine and I’ll swoon all day over the touches of charm in your bedroom & trees dripping with Spanish moss in your front yard (visual kinda gal, obviously!) but I want it to MEAN something. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Motherhood has always been at the the top of that list because it’s so real & raw & beautiful simultaneously. You can’t “fake” it. And that’s what I love so dearly about it. The infinite number of feels you experience on a minute by minute basis. Photographs of it all giving you something to treasure when the days are trying and you wonder if you’re cut out for this whole gig. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve got a few things up my sleeve for this, the first being the two days of motherhood sessions planned for this spring - one outdoors in the fresh blooms that accompany this season & one in a darling local airBNB. I’m planning something a little different though, the sessions will be a bit longer than your typical mini giving us a little more time for the meaningful goodness. Less of the forced smiles and more of the real connections + emotions you want to revel in forever and ever. Over here on pins and needles ready to make some magic with you mamas. IS IT SPRING ALREADY?!
If you'd care to take your eyeballs on over to the blog today, you'll find this lovely gal whose heart shines as bright as the north star + her favorite people in the world + the most heartfelt day imaginable. Go onnnnn...I know ya wanna!
Life right now is new bride & groom consults and planning engagement sessions and boy do I love it so. Well, not as much as shooting them. That’s where the magic lies for me. Cracking you open like a human coconut to bring out the cute little person your spouse-to-be loves so dearly. All the fun, snuggling, shrieking with joy, belly laughs, kissing (for them, not me 😜) and weird things I like to make them do. I’M SO EXCITED.
