This family is near and dear to my heart. They have trusted me with multiple family sessions (#1, #2 and #3), plus both of Lindsay’s sisters are past bride’s of mine (Hi, Ashley and Kelsey!). I can’t tell you how honored I am to have been a part of their lives … and continue to be called back! It’s the ultimate goal for a photographer, and I’m just pinching myself that I get to hang out with this family on a regular basis. The kids? Adorable. Hilarious. Intelligent. The parents? Positive. Great senses of humor. Kind as all get out. :)

This photo makes me want to go frolic through a field. How carefree and HAPPY does Damien look?! This is the picture of childhood right here.

Vincent was really more interested in collecting sticks and rocks and leaves than he was in getting his photo taken. It’s OK though. We made it work!

And Adelaide was ready to do anything I asked her. She was a pro at posing for the camera. What a cutie.

Shannon & Jason | Rockefeller Park Greenhouse WeddingJanuary 13, 2015

Rockefeller Park Greenhouse Wedding Photos
At the risk of sounding like a complete nerd, Shannon and Jason had me at their cat wedding topper. Yep, we’re all cat lovers around here! (Scroll to the bottom of this post if you need to see that wedding topper rightthisveryminute.)

Shannon and Jason had an intimate wedding at Rockefeller Greenhouse with their nearest and dearest. I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again: There’s just something so special about small weddings. For these two it just made sense; they are self-proclaimed homebodies and love spending time with their family and a couple close friends … and, of course, each other.

“Jason is funny, kind-hearted, thoughtful, romantic, logical and extremely rational, which helps to balance me out as I can sometimes be emotional,” Shannon said.

But Jason said he loves that Shannon is emotional. He loves her “overly kind and sympathetic heart” (it’s no surprise she’s a counselor and a huge animal lover!) and is most looking forward to continuing to share life with her.

Shannon and Jason, it was an honor to document your wedding and witness your huge hearts for each other and your family and friends. Let’s get that dinner sometime soon!

2014 Client Holiday GiftsJanuary 9, 2015

Client Gifts
Around October last year, I started brainstorming wedding client gifts. Scribbles in my notebook and lots of time wandering around Anthropologie finally had me deciding on personalized mugs + my mom’s toffee (that my family is just about obsessed with, especially around the holidays!). I always like to share a little piece of my life with my fantastic clients and this was the perfect way to say thank you.

Plus, if I’m being completely honest, I was craving some toffee myself and knew I could eat the leftovers. There, I said it.

I know you’ll want the recipe after checking out these photos, so I’m just gonna go ahead and give it to you now. You are so very welcome!

My Mom’s Mouth-Watering Toffee

1 cup pecans, chopped
¾ cup brown sugar, packed
½ cup buttuer
4 ½ ounces semisweet chocolate chips

Butter square pan or dish (9x9x2 inches). Spread pecans in pan. Heat sugar and butter to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil over medium heat, stirring constantly, 7 minutes (This is important because it’s what makes the toffee hard. It will go through lots of different consistencies … stick with it!). Immediately spread mix evenly over nuts in pan. Sprinkle chocolate pieces over hot mixture; place baking sheet over pan so contained heat will melt chocolate. Spread melted chocolate over toffee. While hot, cut in squares OR break it by hand after it’s set. Chill until firm. Eat. Again and again.
