  • Philly | October, 2016

  • A glance back at my time in Philadelphia three months ago and already three trips to Philly ago. Fishtown wanderings:     A visit to the Edgar Allan Poe house where he wrote The Raven amongst many other works.   Michelle and Frank came down from NYC and we headed to Beiler's Don[...]
  • Spoon Carving for my Birthday

  • I love getting to kick off each new year with a little gathering of my friends as I indulge in a bit of a birthday celebration. Last year, we took a pottery class, while the year before, we threw a swanky party in the garden at my studio. This year, I riffed on the crafting theme as we headed back t[...]
  • Maxine & Justin | Engagement Guest Book

  • Here's a quick peek at Maxine and Justin's beautiful guest book we made with images from their engagement session. I love how the photo wrap turned out for their cover. The matte finish is perfect and modern. Just a few of the simple layouts inside: It's a perfect balance between featu[...]
  • Karen & Casey | Gunmetal Leather Wedding Album

  • Acadia National Park | Maine

  • Autumn in Acadia is simply stunning. Much like my time in Yosemite, we had persistent fog and rain hanging over us. And yet, it was still so beautiful. Fog and foliage make a great match after all.     Sunrise from Cadillac Mountain... the first spot to see s[...]
  • Foliage & Lobsters | Fall Road Trip to Maine

  • Beautiful foliage, delicious lobsters, cute towns, and we even happened upon an alpaca farm. Ahh, it must be fall in Maine. Maine has been beckoning me for a few years now, and Justin and I finally got to make our way up the coast this October. I headed over to the East Coast as soon as I had a brea[...]
  • Yosemite | Rainy Day Beauty

  • I stood on the side of the road, the mist rolling gently through the mountains before me. Calmness. Gratitude. I had never been so glad to see a rainy day. Normally people are disappointed when rain pervades their Yosemite trip. You might normally hope for sunny skies or a classic golden hour and a [...]
