Good morning from Ocean City!! I’m here for a girls’ weekend getaway (to celebrate our dear friend Natalie’s birthday!), and it’s reminding me just how good it is to occasionally get away from the office. And even moreso, how important fellowship is! As small business owners it’s so easy to become an island unto yourself, but […]

  • Jean - I’m with you on the crab thing. Love crab cakes but I don’t want to shell them, yes, Matt is handsome and you two are so good together. You girls look like you’re having fun. Treasure these moments. They don’t last forever!ReplyCancel

  • Sarah Bradshaw - I’m OBSESSED with blue crabs, but Buck can’t stand them… because of that mustard stuff. Haha. Glad you got a weekend away!ReplyCancel

  • Karen aka Mom - Best photo of Matt!ReplyCancel

  • Ally Allison - I hope you had such a fun time celebrating Matt this weekend! :)ReplyCancel

It seems like this has been the week of Instagram! The theme for our Tuesdays Together this week was all about IG, and then next wee the Rising Tide Society is hosting a five-day Insta challenge. With as quickly as IG is rising to the top of the social media pyramid, it makes sense why […]

  • Allison Mannella - Such awesome tips Abby! I started using Latergramme this month and LOVE it! I just keep any links and hashtags I want to include in Evernote, then add them in when I push the post live. Hootsuite also just came out with the ability to schedule IG posts for anyone who uses that platform!ReplyCancel

  • Jean - You taught me to use Instagram and I love it. Love you.ReplyCancel

  • Laura - Thank you for this post, Abby! It is very helpful! :) What VSCO filters do you use?ReplyCancel

I hope it’s not pompous to say, but this past iteration of APWW was the best one yet! Maybe it was because of the addition of the styled shoot, or maybe it’s that I felt more prepared this time, or maybe it was even just the particular combination of people and personalities we had present. […]

  • Jean - What a lovely setting for your workshop. Beauty all around! Everything gorgeous!ReplyCancel

  • Karen Field aka Mom - I took that last group shot, after Abby set it up. It was a wonderful day here at The Farmhouse! So much fun watching the participants respond to Abby’s teaching and enthusiasm! I feel like she is me only her classroom isn’t in an elementary school building! She’s a much improved version of me! And Matt is one heck of a partner! Kudos to all those who helped with the workshop! Neighbors kept asking me what was going on with the photographers all over our yard that day!ReplyCancel

  • Katie Mayfield - What lovely images! Thank you Abby for allowing Paul & I to take part in your workshop, we enjoyed it.ReplyCancel

  • Sarah Bradshaw - I’m so proud of you. :)ReplyCancel

So I think the bit I love most about these two is how authentically they live and love. There’s never a worry that they’re not being transparent, or the fear of any sort of level pretense. It’s just 100% authentic and genuine with these two. And as someone who more often than not says exactly […]

Iiiiit’s MONDAY! This weekend was sort of weird- we have most of Saturday and all of Sunday completely off, no real social plans or appointments. So we spent a lot of time sitting around reading, which was AWESOME, and a potion of time cleaning around the house, which was less awesome. But on the plus […]
