It took him three tries to get her to go on that first date- “I think she liked playing hard to get,” he said with a smile. But as the saying goes, the third time’s the charm and they finally found themselves out on that elusive date. And then another date… and another one. There […]

I am SO excited to share these with you guys today- Stamford is one of my all-time favorite places in the world and these film scans do way more justice than the last batch of images I took five years ago. Stamford is hundreds of years old, and the building facades you’ll see are the […]

    Was lovely to meet you both when you were here and glad that you had such a great time.

    Best wishes AnnReplyCancel

Alright, people. Let’s talk about Netflix. I’m convinced this thing is the best/worst thing that’s ever happened to me. Matt & I have never been the kind of people who sit around and watch TV, unless it’s a Nationals, Redskins, or Cowboys game. Or the first season of Once Upon A Time (because really, anything […]

  • Urška Majer - Oh, i know how a “sugar diet” can be difficult! I’ve been on low sugar diet for the past few months(i decided to eat healthier). It was really difficult at first when everybody was eating something sweet but i ate a lot of fruit in the start and it helped. Also in a few weeks everything normally sweet will be too sweet for you so you don’t even want to taste it 😀ReplyCancel

  • Lisa - If your mind is blown over Nutella on toast by itself, prepare yourself:

    Toasty (melty) Nutella and peanut butter sandwiches.

    You’re welcome.ReplyCancel

  • Jean - Nutella is great! We have a couple of shows that I like to watch on TV. It gives me something to look forward to. Love the picture.ReplyCancel

  • Rebekah Hoyt - Ooo gorgeous sneak peek! I can’t wait to see more! I LOVE Nutella! I first had it on a family trip to Switzerland when I was 8 years old and I thought it was a European thing. When we came back to the States and my mom kept it stocked in our pantry, I was SO excited! Nutella on toast is THE best, but my second favorite is a PB+nutella sandwich – SO good!!ReplyCancel

  • Laura Barnes - The first season of New Girl is now instant watch on Netflix and it’s pretty much the best thing ever. You have to check it out! Trust me – you won’t stop laughing!ReplyCancel

  • Rachel Wells - Oooo, love the preview! Can’t wait to see the rest of that engagement session! I have the biggest sweet tooth EVER, and constantly try sugar fasting. It never goes well for me…I DID make it a month one time, though!ReplyCancel

  • Alexandra {Heart Love Weddings} - Goodness, this picture is gorgeous!!! <3ReplyCancel

  • Kathryn Grace - You’ve gotta try Nutella slathered on a King’s Hawaiian roll… it’s pure happiness. :-)ReplyCancel

  • Tina Raquel - This is so beautiful! I see a lot of “under the dock” photos, and they are often too dark or shadowing, this is just perfect! I’d love to have a photo like this!ReplyCancel

  • Krista A. Jones - Seriously Abby that image is STUNNING! I can’t wait to see the full post! And my husband just started cutting sugar yesterday too!ReplyCancel

  • Hannah Rancourt - This image is PERFECT! I’m in love!ReplyCancel

  • Sarah H. - I am right there with ya girl about Netflix! We finally got what we needed in order to have Netfilx, Pandora, etc of here. And I am so thankful! And yet – I find it absolutely too easy to sit on the couch and watch episode after episode of Parks and Rec – all of which I have seen already. lol. Oh – and I got Greg into Bones, so we are starting at season one – did I mention I have seen probably 6 of the seasons entirely already? lol.ReplyCancel

Last week I received one of the best emails a photographer can find in their inbox- “Your scans are ready!” WOOO! During out two week trip in Europe I made it my mission to shoot all of my personal work on film. Instead of carrying my mk3 with me through London, I brought [lugged] my […]

  • Karen Field - Amazing! I remember when you and I were there about 5 years ago and you were just starting to become interested in photography. It’s been fun to watch you go on from there. My interest seemed to be caught mostly by the rural shots, only because they looked just as they would have when Jane Austen took her rural walks in Hampshire. Your photos made me feel like I was there again. Beautiful! MomReplyCancel

He stood waiting for her on a veranda overlooking the golf club, patient and calm. That seems to be a running theme with Tim- steadfast and easygoing, with that undercurrent off joy, excitement, bliss. It’s part of what drew Lauren to him, the way he listens, really listens when she talks. As she walked toward […]
