Weekend review

This weekend was full of fall fun..... we found an amazing park, threw rocks in the water, rode bikes, picked pumpkins, and finished the kitchen! Details on that tomorrow!

Favorites Friday: thankful

One of the sole reasons I work at the hospitals is to keep perspective. There's no way I can for one second think about myself as I tend people who shouldn't have cancer, disease, and heartache. This week I remain so thankful for all of the riches and I mean riches esepecially compared to t…


I love secrets. Not about people but to people. Ya know their idiosyncracies, oddities, quirks, and delights. It takes time and patience to unlock those hidden truths. The "getting to know each other thing" which my husband and I still work on daily believe it or not! This concept blew me…

Best engagement ever

Just had to share this amazing engagement story, mainly because it involves two people who are dear to us; Joe and Jill. Joe is a marine and Jill is a physical therapist! He organized this most elaborate treasure hunt for Jill sending her to different locations throughout the D.C area each with a M…

Our family photoshoot

Sweet kiki took some family photos of us for me!! Found out hubs will be unavailable for the ball, major bummer. But made the most of some ball gowns and used em for our pictures!! Smiles all around, that is except for Gideon who choose our picture day to uncooperate (putting it nicely!)

Favorites friday: inspiration

So thrilled to greet friday! This week was full and its certainly time to unwind. Plan on editing photos, capturing a home photoshoot, spending time with hubs, and trying to unsolve the great mystery of photoshop! Here's some inspiration from this week!

kiki & mimi sneak peeks

We've been busy shooting some beautiful people and little ones too! Its so much fun!

Country wedding

The traffic around these parts kinda runs our lives, such a shame! I'm dreaming of a slower pace and country loving like this dreamy wedding photographed by Terra Dawn, feast your eyes. 

Coral lips

Our weekend was jam packed and included a tour of the helicopter hangar, I've been a couple a times but remain amazed! Hardly ever wear lipstick but thought I'd be bold and go for coral to brighten the backdrop of all that dark green!

Photographic art

Happy Monday! These two rooms really caught my eye because of the blown up photographs! Just recently blew up one of my own really large, can't wait to show you! Love the look!
