Sneak Peek: Photo Fun Among the Monuments

Here's a sneak peek of my photo shoot with Kacy, Bobby & Baby Emmy. We had our shoot down on the Mall near the Settlers of DC Memorial & the Tidal Basin. Such a fun little family! Sidenote: Emmy could quite possibly be the most photogenic baby I've ever seen - check out those baby blues!

It's Happening!

Fall is finally here! I went running earlier this evening and had to stop to take these pictures. Signs of fall are everywhere: the leaves are turning, there are piles of crunchy leaves on the ground, and I even wore my boots yesterday. Let's be real - as a native Floridian who just moved to DC, I was ready to wear those boots when the temperature dropped below 80, but I patiently waited for a high of 70...I think that's cool enough, right?! Heck, I'd wear boots all year round if I could. 

Welp, I'd say it's officially official, folks - it's time to start baking pumpkin everything and getting out those fall decorations. Remember last year when my autumn enthusiast best friend briefed us on the deliciousness of pumpkin baked goods? Well if you don't remember, you'll want to have a look. She knows what she's talking about.

A September Morning at Foxstone Creek

This is my cousin Bridget. I think we can all agree she should be a model. I'd like to extend a BIG thank you to her for her help with this shoot. Thank you Bridget! ...or should I say Brigitte, future model superstar!
