Confession: I get REALLY nervous when shooting proposals! Like heartbeat-in-your-ears, sweaty palms, mouth dry, the works. But when you get an email from a guy like Keith spilling his plans to propose to his wonderful girlfriend, and tells you that they both love your work? There’s no way I’d miss that! EsPECIALLY when it involves […]

I might be biased, but I think our most recent workshop was the best one yet! I’ve never been one for styling, so having Kat of Dear Sweetheart Events at the helm for the styled shoot made it possible for me to focus on the teaching aspect of it all. After having worked with Kat […]

No, today’s not about budgets. It’s about a HAIRCUT! I know people get their hair cut all the time, but I average… like, two cuts a year. Having long hair, that was about as frequently as I needed to get to get the ends cleaned up! But this time, I decided to go for something […]

  • Urška Majer - Ahh, that takes some courage! But your new look looks amazing :)ReplyCancel

  • Alicia - GAHHH YOU LOOK BEAUTIFUL!!!! I’m right there with you — my hair is my security blanket! But I agree, it’s such a stupid thought; your hair doesn’t make you any less you — if anything it made you even more of a B.A. in my opinion :) :)ReplyCancel

  • Muriel Silva - Looks fantastic! Very chic :)ReplyCancel

  • Lauren - Abby!!!! You look amazing!!! I absolutely love it!!!!!!ReplyCancel

  • Lauren - You look gorgeous! Love the new ‘do!ReplyCancel

  • Ashley - Gah! It looks amazing on you! Love it! :)ReplyCancel

  • Emily - Ahh I love it sooo much!!! So cute!ReplyCancel

  • Taylor - Love! I did the exact same thing. Last year, I cut 13″ off my hair and haven’t looked back! It has been so much easier to get ready for work, and I actually cut it so that I could wear my hair down and still be within uniform standards (I’m a flight attendant for an international airline). I would always see these women with their adorable bobs and think about how wearing it up in a bun was just getting old. My hair has grown out to the point I can’t really get away with it down for work anymore, but it’s still stinkin’ cute when I go out! Love your cut & the natural wave!ReplyCancel

  • Marirosa - so pretty!!! love it!!ReplyCancel

  • Erika Mills - I LOVE IT! I wish I could cut my hair into this style but curly hair is a no go! I actually think this makes you somehow more sophisticated, french-y, and stylish? Weird I know but I love!ReplyCancel

  • Melissa Durham - Ah! This looks gorgeous on you! (I adore that first photo of you!!!)

    When I turned 30, I did the same thing – just chopped 12″ off and donated it. Now, 3 years later, it’s back down to my bum, and it’s about time to cut it again. I’m holding off, though…our 10-year renewal is in May. Then it’s time to do the chop chop!ReplyCancel

  • Mary Neumann - Eeeeeek!! You are so brave and look BEYOND adorable!!! xoxoReplyCancel

  • Alexandra {Heart Love Always} - Looks super cute, Abby!! <3ReplyCancel

  • Vanessa - Abby! You are gorgeous! I love the new cut and how playful it is! My husband has been asking me to grow my hair again, but after cutting mine with flirty layers, I don’t know if I could ever grow it long again. Rock it out girl!ReplyCancel

  • Lorinda Leigh - Abby!!!! Your hair looks SO good. Love it!! :)ReplyCancel

  • Alison - Girl!! I love it! Looks fabulous!ReplyCancel

  • Caroline - ABBY! This is the best!!! Did you end up donating your locks? And I totally agree with your sentiments- as women, we tend to let our hair define us, which is beyond silly. You look beautiful no matter what, and no cut, makeup, or clothing will ever define your talent as a photographer! Nevertheless, you look so much lighter and happy as can be! Now go forth and spend the time you budgeted for hair to a photo shoot you’ve ALWAYS wanted to do- you deserve it! :-)ReplyCancel

  • Meredith Sledge - So cute Abby!!!ReplyCancel

  • Eddie - It must be the season! I just cut off my waist-long hair on Saturday as well… oh, and brought my first RED lipstick for the first time! I read a GREAT quote while getting my hair cut– a woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life. (Coco Chanel) Go move mountains, linda. Move ‘um!ReplyCancel

Oooh the off-season. So intensely anticipated, and yet once it arrives, so many of us turn into Ricky Bobbys- “what do I do with my hands? I don’t know what to do with my hands…” In the past, the off-season’s been really difficult for me. Going from 60mph to ZERO is a hard stop, and if you’re […]

  • Alicia - Take time to ENJOY this!!!! We can’t wait to see more of your watercolors!ReplyCancel

  • Jean - Glad to hear you are getting som relaxation! Everybody needs time to unwind and enjoy doing what makes you happy.ReplyCancel

  • Karen Field aka Mom - Good for you! I’m glad that reflection has brought you peace in this area!ReplyCancel

Oh I just LOVE album day on the blog! Today’s heirloom book is from one couple’s wedding that I KNOW you guys loved, because my blog stats went crazy on the day I posted their wedding! Jake & Abby were married at Early Mountain Vineyard just outside of Charlottesville, Virginia, and it couldn’t have been a […]
