Is throwback Thursday still a thing? Because I’m throwing back to this sweet family shoot in Washington, DC last year, because this cutie is adorable and I feel like it. 😜💁🏼♀️
Hot tip: Whole Foods sushi and kombucha and Schitt’s Creek is a stellar mid-week combo. 💁🏼♀️ Happy Wednesday, y’all!!

There’s so much on my heart right now, but I’m not sure if I have words for it all yet. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The last week has just been so much LIFE. The depth of experiences I’ve witnessed in my close friends recently is dizzying - from engagements to business achievements to moving cities to weddings to pregnancies to the loss of a spouse - and that’s all in the last week alone. Expand out to a month and there are new jobs, divorces, new houses, and more. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I went to a wedding and a funeral on back to back days last weekend, and it feels like my heart is overflowing with a mix of joy and sorrow. I’m deeply grieving and deeply grateful - how can I be so much of both at the same time? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One of my friends was at both the wedding and the funeral with me, and she said it best - “How can I go from happy tears today to sad tears tomorrow?” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s disorienting, and I feel so exquisitely, excruciatingly human right now. Being human is so uncomfortable at times like this - as if the spirit/soul/higher self/whatever you want to call it is drawing attention to the fact that being human is a temporary experience, and that all the emotions we experience in this human shell are both beautiful and terrible, and we have to just FEEL them all. There’s no escaping our human-ness while we are here doing our thing on Earth. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But even in the grief, I keep coming back to the lyric from @sleepingatlast lately - “how beautiful it is to even exist.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That’s all the words I’ve got today, friends. Just hug your people, soak up the joy when you have it and let yourself feel the pain when it’s time to grieve. ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I get asked about rain backup plans for photos ALL the time, because Savannah likes to keep us on our toes when it comes to weather! (It’s literally raining as I write this 😂) When rescheduling a shoot is an option, that’s always my first choice because ☀️>⛈ - but when rescheduling isn’t possible, I always recommend the Whitefield Square gazebo as a backup plan! It’s gorgeous, covered, and still has those dreamy Savannah vibes. 😍
