HELLO TO SPRING

IMG_6206 I think I say this every spring, but that winter was brutal. The arrival of spring has been a welcomed event, and I don't know that I've ever appreciated all of the blooms and greenery so much. Lately, I've been a little bit swamped as I've taken on a new role as Travel Editor of The Everygirl. Luckily, I have a few trips coming up that will be a nice, relaxing break. The big, big trip though, is to Copenhagen this July to eat at Noma (!!!!!!!!!). Words cant describe my excitement. In the meantime, I've been trying to enjoy the warm weather as much as possible.

Trouvé Magazine Shoot

IMG_5703 Amanda Marko, the super talented Editor of Trouvé Magazine invited me to shoot a fun little wrapping party right before the holidays for Camille Styles. A group of Amanda's close friends spent the afternoon snacking, wrapping and taking things a bit easy right before the craziness of the holidays. I also got to learn a bit more about Trouvé's signature wax stamp and what goes into making it. All in all, it was such a fun time shooting Amanda's home and event. It's incredible how much goes into the creation and distribution of a magazine, and how much Amanda does on her own.

Field and Foundry | Baltimore

IMG_6395 IMG_6522 Last weekend I shot the second Field and Foundry event in Baltimore, MD. I'm so happy I get to share these dinners with the incredible ladies who put on the event. More photos to come soon!

EDGE OF SUMMER | ARTIFACT UPRISING

Summer has always been my favorite time of the year. Last year felt like my first "real" winter ever (before that I either got lucky with mild winters or was living in Florida) and it was pretty hard on me. On the flip side, it really forced me to get out and enjoy this summer as much as humanly possible. This summer will always remind me spending time by the river, watching World Cup games on patios, eating dinners outdoors, reading by pools and dog walks with iced coffees. Artifact Uprising was kind enough to send me a postcard pack of some of my favorite photos from this summer. For those of you who may not know, Artifact Uprising is a company that allows you to create books or prints of your photography whether you're a full-time professional or an iPhone snapper. Growing up, I was pretty crazy about having physical albums full of photos from every life event, big or small, so I love that Artifact Uprising really captures that spirit.

Today I wanted to share a few photos of my postcards as well as a couple of my favorite photos from this summer. Hope yours was great.

Happy Friday! This weekend I'm wrapping up a few things since I'll be heading back home to Florida for a couple of days next weekend. Enjoy your weekend.

NEW SITE

It’s finally here! After several weeks of working on this site with Jonathan, it's finally up and running. I’ve wanted an updated, customized site for my photography and blog for a long time now, and I’m just so glad it’s finally ready to use. Before this, my portfolio site and blog felt pretty disjointed so I’m really excited to have everything in one place.

I hope you'll enjoy taking a look around here. I'm still making a couple of minor adjustments, but if you have any issues with the site or have trouble finding something, please feel free to email me.

A final note: the process of going through several years’ worth of photos, designing, customizing and coding things correctly, etc. was no easy task, but it was made infinitely better and easier because of Jonathan’s help. Thanks, JB, for always being supportive.

LATELY

January was a crazy month in between weddings, shoots and all of this freezing weather! I recently went to Orlando to shoot a friend's wedding which was a nice break, but now I'm back to the cold.

The Everygirl featured my recipe and photographs earlier this month. Big thanks to Jonathan for helping me on the shoot and always letting me take over our dining room table for stuff like this.

And one quick peak of my sweet friend, Nikki, on her wedding day.
