Indie’s Enchanted FOURest Photoshoot by The Deerwood Co!
You all know I LOVE a strong, cohesive theme and for every birthday Indie has had, I have incorporated the party theme into her formal portraits! I don’t know how much longer I’ll do this… do people do formal photoshoots for birthdays beyond age 5? I barely know anyone who does them past the first year! But here we are…. four years in, and I’m going strong – because I cannot deny that I’m extra.Continue reading “Indie’s Enchanted FOURest Photoshoot by The Deerwood Co!”

I am so excited to share our ‘Fresh 48’ photoshoot by The Deerwood Company! When Indie was born, I had a similar session scheduled and had to cancel for obvious reasons. This time, it brought me such great joy to have our photographer be able to visit the mother-baby unit to photograph our littlest love in all her good health.

my life as a new mom has been nothing short of a whirlwind, leaving me little brain space (or energy) to think bigger than a single instagram post at a time… but today i finished editing our halloween photoshoot (shot by the brilliant @laurenanzevino) and i was so taken aback by how gorgeous these pictures are that i had to share them all ASAP. not only are they beautiful to look at, but they got my wheels turning about baby’s first halloween and what it means to me as a creative, and as a mother. as it’s quickly approaching, read on for some last-minute halloween inspiration. this isn’t a “DIY costume” post or a “how i did my makeup” tutorial…. this is a blog post on making an everlasting memory with your “first timer” that goes beyond the traditional.
