summer flowers

Enjoying the beauty of these summer months - so much color!

My husband and I just returned from a trip to Greece, and I have so much to share. Still dealing with a bit of jet lag, which I definitely under-estimated. I'm waiting patiently for film to be developed and I will share more from our travels soon.

 

Currently - June

Summer is in full swing around here, and I am loving this break from our normal schedule.  

A few things that I am currently loving this month:

Taking advantage of the extra sunlight that comes with these long summer days - early morning coffee on the patio and late evening trips to the pool.

Honored for this quick feature on Apartment Therapy

Prepping for Ali Edward's upcoming Week In The Life later this summer.  I plan on sharing a few of my spreads from 2014 and 2013 soon.

Happy that I am picking up my camera more and more these days.

Laughed out loud when I read this - 10 Tricks to Appear Smart in Meetings.

Emerged myself in Victoria Will's work - she photographed celebrities at Sundace on film.  See her amazing photos here.

Loving how my baby girl only wants to wear long sun dresses these days.

Looking forward to a summer vacation.  Picking which cameras I will bring is proving to be harder than I thought.

Enjoying here and now, and trying not to wish away my days.

What are you enjoying this month?

captured moments, late spring

A few moments I've captured lately.  I'm currently loving this Spring weather - sun mixed with showers almost everyday.

My favorite flower, ranunculus,  brightening my desk.  They never cease to make me smile.

There's nothing quite like freshly picked strawberries.  These are courtesy of my nephews.  I had so many, my freezer is packed for the winter as well.

The newest succulent to join our family.  Let's hope I can keep this one alive.  With a newborn on the way, I'm not so sure - but I will definitely try.

Enjoying rainy and quiet Sunday mornings....

First blooms of the peonies I planted last year!  I was so proud, I didn't have heart to clip them and bring them inside.

There is something about flowers that make a house a home.

Eggs have been in heavy rotation around here for breakfast.  My girls like them hard boiled.

Our spring garden is looking good.  So far, I've planted tomatoes, bell peppers, rosemary, parsley, and cucumbers.

More, soon.

michael + diana

A couple of weeks ago, I attended the wedding of my friend Michael and his lovely bride, Diana.  Nestled in a small garden, the ceremony was a beautiful one - small and intimate.

I always felt that there is so much pressure involved for wedding photographers, but I surprised myself at how much I enjoyed capturing these moments.  And using film, I was much more selective about the shots that I did take.

Congrats Michael & Diana!

new orleans, and a new year

Images from a quick trip to New Orleans we made this past weekend.  It was great to get away, enjoy breakfast in bed, and see the sights and sounds of New Orleans.  The weather was overcast, but perfect for walking around the French Quarter.

I am looking forward to this new year.  I always feel like the new year is a clean slate, a renewed chance to start new, start fresh.  Surely,  many good things to come.

And many thanks to Kirstin for inviting me to participate in "Conversations" on Mortal Muses.

Happy New Year!

summer's winding down

Summer is winding down.

It's the same signs every year - my oldest daughter is back in school, the days are a bit shorter, and I love the coolness of the mornings and late evening.

And I finally got around to developing + scanning the rest of my images from our beach vacation.  I could definitely use a couple more days on the beach.

I'm taking some time away in the next few weeks - posting will be light as I work on some photography projects that I have had in mind, and enjoy the last days of summer.

a window to your soul

I'm just getting my film back from my trip home to Louisiana.  I made a point to capture the windows that spoke to me.  Windows dressed so simply, yet so profound.

I've been taking my time, lately.  Documenting here and there with my camera, but mostly living in the moment.  Experiencing without the need to click a shutter.  Surprisingly, I am enjoying that.

More, soon.
