These two. So many smiles and laughs throughout their engagement session, I left with the biggest grin on my face!

I believe in dreaming, dreaming BIG. So when you throw your dreams out to the universe, announce your intentions to the world, and something gets shouted back to you? You take it and run with it.

Gooood morning! It’s a Monday, the sun is shining, and the tree outside my office window is in full bloom. Life is good! I was awoken this morning by two cold, wet noses pressing into my face, which is also always a good start. We’re puppysitting for my brother and sister-in-law’s Beagle/Jack Russel mix for […]

I love Instagram. It’s easily the most-used app on my phone, and if IG were a person, we would have one of those “BFF” necklaces that splits in two. It’s that serious. Instagram is, in my opinion, the best no-fuss way to share your images. There’s none of the worry about “will this only show […]

I don’t even know how to put Italy into words. I don’t think you CAN put it into words, that’s the allure- a place so beautiful, so historically rich and yet still so relevant- you have to see it for yourself to truly understand. My latest Europe trip began in Vicenza, Italy where I was […]
