wpshoot // anna + nat are wed!

Three days before the big day (aka hip surgery) I finished out my 2016 photo season with the wedding of Nat & Anna. After having a rainy engagement session, we were gifted with a beautiful day in PA/DE on a farm that has been owned by a member of Nat’s family for…well, quite sometime. They got married with only their closest family in a tiny chapel (formerly a spring house) and I couldn’t have imagined a better way to close out a season.

links // since i’ve been gone

We’re going to call this, “The Best of the Internet since January.” Because, well, it’s been a while. What I lack in timeliness, I make up in content. That could be a lie, but either way, I enjoyed them (and they cover a wide reach of topics). Today, I offer you champagne, mixed race commentary, dance, cheese, pasta, and a KFC romance novel. And a few other bits of greatness.

Also, a trip to see the Kusama exhibit at the Hirshhorn Museum

shopping // arro home

Whenever I am feeling a bit stressed out, I tend to go down the internet rabbit hole. Every article I read links to another article which somewhere along the way links to shopping. This week I made a new discovery in Arro Home. Let me be the first to say this is the best/worst discovery I’ve made in a while. You’re welcome.

ArroHome

1. Cloud Nine Cushion | 2. Jessica Bowl & Jug | 3. Orb Side Table | 4. Glint Water Jug | 5. Rainbow Tea Towel | 6. Fried Egg Cushion | 7. Lunar Orb | 8. Winter Vase | 9. Crosses Quilt | 10. Aloft Ottoman Rose

Also, because I love a good deal, nine of these items are straight from the sale page. Which just leaves the question of, how do you even begin to choose?

wpshoots // a mini stroll in the park

About two years ago, I had a family reach out about doing a mini-session at the National Cathedral. They had a new wee one, he wore a jacket with bear ears on the hood, and he was all smiles. Fast forward to this fall and I got the great opportunity to hang out with this family again (and wee one #2 who recently arrived). I love being able to see new family members join and to watch the littles grow up year after year.
