Perfectly Cozy BB Dakota Coat

The weekend before Halloween, Bryan and I took a little road trip to Raleigh, NC to celebrate his 30th birthday. All he wanted was to eat amazing barbecue and sample beer from breweries along our journey, which is just what we did!

Baby Orson

This time of year always reminds me of the importance of family, so I wanted to share some portraits of a family that is very near and dear to my heart. These were taken about a month after Orson was born, and he has grown even more since then! He is incredibly lucky to have such amazing parents, and they are just as lucky to have him. So much love for the Knox family.

Raleigh Road Trip

 

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope that if you’re reading this you are a couple drinks and multiple helpings into the celebration. I’m thankful for many things this year, but in particular I’m grateful for my wonderful fiancé, Bryan, who you see mentioned on the blog here and there, and most of the time in my photography credits. Among many things, Bryan is an incredible support to my creative pursuits, and without him this blog wouldn’t be possible!

Thanksgiving Ready

You already know how I feel about style + comfort, so you must have guessed that Thanksgiving Day is no exception. As an alternative to my [very] worn-in sweat pants, I found the best comfy AND stylish pieces from TOBI as outfit options for all of the eating, drinking, and lounging (and no, I do not plan on deviating from those three activities).

Luna’s First BarkBox

Luna’s birthday was back in September, so I decided to treat her with a little BarkBox to celebrate! Her box was dinosaur-themed and she was over the moon for the huge dino bone and Herbert the Herbivore plush toy. The box also came with a bunch of treats and she absolutely loves the Pterodactyl Treats made with limited ingredients (which we’ve found works better for her), including duck, sweet potato, and carrots. I can’t believe her we’ve had her for over a year already. She’s changed our lives in the most positive ways, so I really don’t know how we functioned without her!

Hanging on to Summer

I’m writing this as I look out the window to see the turning leaves of fall… how can summer be over already? I left for Portugal and Spain two weeks ago (where it’s 90-degrees and sunny), and came back to 65-degree temperatures and rain! Summer always goes by too fast, so I’ll be hanging on to summer nights and the fleeting sun by soaking up as much time outside as possible, as long as possible, with my favorite things and favorite people until we start to spend chilly evenings inside with cozy blankets and warmer drinks!

Portraits with Maggie

Maggie is the founder of a financial coaching company and needed some fresh portraits for her business, so a couple weekends ago we would have been seen crisscrossing through Del Ray finding micro jungles and gardens for backdrops. It was a hot July day, so we started our adventure with coffee and tea from Swings and then I proceeded to put Maggie in flowers for the rest of the morning. And I’m so grateful that she did… take a look at her beautiful portraits for yourself!
