Feeling fall feels. Family and apple picking on my favorite mountain tomorrow, then our #sobremesabysundaysuppers on Sunday. What are you up to this weekend? 🍂🍁

I’m detail oriented to my core, and often I forget to look at the whole picture. Wider angles have been a big goal of mine for 2018 and I’ve been loving the results! It takes a conscious effort on my part to remember to back up, but it’s amazing what seeing the whole picture does from a storytelling perspective. Can’t wait to share more of these film scans with you, @lauren_cip! 😍🎉

So soon, these tiny toes will run your world, Mama. Prepare your heart to keep up. 💕

This one is for the fellas: Husbands, Dads, Fiancés, you want to really “wow” the woman in your life this holiday season? I’ve created a limited number of “Heirloom Holiday” boxes that include a session for you and your sweetheart! Email me at to reserve one for your girl (and send me a photo of her face when she opens it Christmas morning)! This is also an excellent gift to give one of your favorite so often they’re the ones behind the camera and it’s profoundly important that they be documented with their babes as they change and grow. 💕 (Ladies, no shame in your game if you send hints regarding this’s never too early to start petitioning Santa 🎅🏼😉)

Insert a witty and poetic caption here about autumn’s arrival and what not...and I’ll just be over here starting at @hillzy_willlzy in her PERFECT engagement session dress! 😍

This photo makes me long for cozy vibes. 🍂 I’ve turned off the”business” side of my brain for the day. I didn’t realize how desperately I needed the quiet (but my home noticed, my husband noticed, my toddler noticed). One of my favorite things I’ve ever heard about motherhood came from @perryvaile and I’ve carried it with me since the first time I heard it. Motherhood and entrepreneurship (or motherhood and ANY other work) is not a balance, but a pendulum. When it swings to work, I am in work mode, and then it swings to home I give it my all. So this while this weekend, the pendulum will move towards art and imagery and service and the business side of my brain, for today I am only “Mama.” The dishwasher is whirring, the house smells of the dinner I’ve been cooking all day, my Pumpkin Clove candle is beckoning for fall feels, and tiny hands are pulling me to sensory play and race cars.

If only
The flowers
That there’s just
No competing
With she
Who blossoms
In love.

Rumor has it that it’s finally going to start to feel like fall this weekend...just in time for our double header! Emily & Seth and Rachel & Will, we can’t wait to celebrate with y’all on Friday and Saturday! 🎉 #tistheseasontobemarried 🍂🍁

Preparing for the final tasting tonight with @forloveoflove before our Richmond edition of @sundaysuppers #sobremesabysundaysuppers. So eager to join friends both new and old around the table in just a few short weeks!

Three cheers for this glowing bride and her viewing party officially being shipped! Can’t wait for your wedding images to make their way into your hands SO SOON, Mindy Leigh! 🎉🍾😍

doux et intime.

With each leaf that falls, I’m reminded of one of my most favorite creative projects with some of my favorite creative people. Hoping for this much warmth in both palette and spirit for all my upcoming autumn weddings!
