I spent the day with a fellow (amazing!) photographer friend of mine that you may remember from the blog, Justina Olenick.  Today I was assisting her in an engagement session with a wonderful couple that just so happened to come out of an area where we both used to live as children.  What a small world!  These were the snaps that I was able to catch on my end while Justina worked her magic.  Though, I'm sure when she's ready I'll have a post to share of hers, as well. ;)

You may notice a lack of eye contact in these, but you know what?

Call me crazy,

I almost like it better that way!

Brooke and Andy are such a sweet, sweet couple.  Even in those first few moments when you all try to break the ice, Brooke would smile as Andy cracked the jokes - definitely an entertaining bunch these two were!  I had such an amazing time, and can't wait for their upcoming nuptials!  I wish them nothing but many more years of happiness together.


  1. I love these! Really, really lovely. Maybe I'm wrong, but I think eye-contact is overrated :)


  2. These are absolutely beautiful!! You are so talented!

  3. The lack of eye contact totally works if you ask me. It's like they are in their own little world, and you just happen to be observing all the love. So sweet. The photos with the yellow flowers are stunning!

  4. I see now that you are a photographer, gosh why did it take me so long to figure it out :o

    lovely shots, so incredible to see you at work!

  5. Thanks again everyone, sorry for the late response! This week truly got the best of me, but so glad to have the feedback. :) xx

  6. You are headed for great things... you know this right? LOVE this set. xx

Easter Weekend

Hello! Happy mid-week to you. This is the roll of photos we shot over our Easter weekend, and oh what a wonderful weekend it was. It was so nice to have family here to visit - even if the weather was cooler than we anticipated! We visited the redwoods in Felton, ate vegetarian burritos, went to the epic shoreside in Montara, and the brewing company in Half Moon Bay. Our hearts are full and our home is feeling quite empty now ;)

As a side note, I've found a renewed love with film. This is a post for another time, but it bears mentioning here! There has been much on my mind re: photography, and hopefully this will be the space I can share that.

For the curious, all the above were shot on a Nikon FM10 with Fuji Superia 400 speed film.

The Long And Short Of It

Hi, friends. How was your weekend? After having non-stop rain for nearly a month, we finally received a short break in the El NiƱo weather to head to the coast. Even though it's not in our backyard, I still feel like twenty miles to the beach is a good compromise. It really is lovely here and it makes me happy to see the girls so at home in the sea.

This week we are gearing up for Easter and some very special visitors -- my Mama and my sister! It will be the first time Mom has seen our new home or visited the Bay Area, so to say we are excited would be an understatement. We cannot wait. I've even kept it as a surprise from the girls, so I'm sure the look on their faces alone when they see Grammie and their Auntie will be the highlight of the whole trip.

What about you? Any special Easter plans or crafting?

We made some hot crossed buns for the first time last year, and I'm hoping I can bake a little something special this year too. We're going to try this recipe a…

Made It To Another Weekend : The Table

Oh, weekend. We are so happy you're here. It's been a doozy lately. I won't put you through the pitiful details, don't worry-- but I'm just happy to exhale a little bit and am welcoming these days of togetherness with open arms. PS- look at me using unfiltered iPhone photos in a blog post. Who am I? Sometimes I don't even recognize myself. Truly a measure of just how exhausted I really am both mentally and physically ;)

And while I've been seriously down and out in every other area of my life, we've actually been doing some pretty cool things at home. I'm so proud of Sofia and her desire to soak up new information, to learn, and to think of me as a pretty cool "teacher". I'm so in awe of everything she does. But this is all part of the inevitable fact that these kiddos of ours are growing up. 
Most days we'll do some kind of worksheet, practicing our letters and cutting skills and getting to color.... other days we'll just spe…
