Silly Dinner Party Games!

April 25, 2018

Center: wearing one of my favorite new dinner party dresses, see here! Fits like a glove. xx  I love spending time with my extended family because it’s always a riot.   We stay up late, we sing, we dance, and we play lots and lots of silly games which make us laugh until our tummies ache or someone inevitably wets their pants.   It’s lively and it’s so full of love.  My childhood was spent staying up late for these special occasions,…

Introducing Collector’s Corner

April 23, 2018

Hi!    Thank you for being patient with us while we took a week away!   It was the first time that we had taken such substantial pause since launching this site just one short year ago.   We photographed a huge wedding with Easton Events, followed next day by a trip to Pensacola, Florida with Garden & Gun and the morning after we returned home, I had surgery!  So, onwards!  We are back with full energy and excitement; with a bit…

Styling Spring Flowers

April 5, 2018

This afternoon was pure bliss.    We had a beautifully sunny start to the day and after sometime at the office, I headed out to pick up some fresh flowers for the house.   The storm clouds rolled overhead just as I stepped inside but the rain was still balmy and warm so I had all of the windows open with a breeze coming through.    I love days like this. I often get asked how I go about selecting flowers…

Friday Night on the Porch

March 23, 2018

We have been working hard to try to really mark our weekends and to take that time off to relax with family and friends.  I know this probably sounds straight forward but after so many years of shooting weddings regularly on the weekends, it’s not a habit we have practiced well.   It’s not that we worked “all the time” it was just that because we work for ourselves, we set a funny schedule where we were never really off duty…

Dreamy Routine: Spring Flowers for the Garden

March 2, 2018

We had my mother in town last weekend which was so lovely and fun.   We spent much of our time upgrading the house — mom is a genius in that department!   The upstairs room (which is quite large) sat empty after we moved our office furniture downtown, and we managed to pull together a cozy family/playroom which has been a real highlight.   We painted frames and hung art; all my mother’s simple little touches are my favorite and I always…

Blue & White Spring Table

February 26, 2018

With the lovely spring weather setting in, we spent as much of this past weekend as possible outside.   We kicked off Friday night (and my mother’s arrival) with an intimate dinner outside on the front porch.   Since we do not have a dining table outside, I pulled a desk from upstairs which suited but is very narrow and didn’t allow much space for a centerpiece.   I find that people actually don’t mind being squished together — it adds to the…
