I have always been fascinated by photography. I have spent countless hours studying photographs of people, while considering the angles, the lighting, and the editing the photographer used. I love the fact that photography has the amazing ability to transport us to a different time, or place with one single shot.
It was not until I started blogging that I decided to take photography more seriously. With camera in hand, I started experimenting with photographs of my apartment, of friends, and family. It was after experimenting in this way that I realized my passion for photography. I have no formal training or background in this field, but I realize that passion can open your eyes to the impossible, so not only did I invest in the proper equipment I also spent the necessary time to learn everything I could to enhance the skill it takes to be proficient with this passion.
I enjoy, and appreciate the opportunity to photograph bloggers, couples, influencers who make an impact in their profession, families, and also lifestyle type setting. I take an individual approach to each person I photograph. I make every effort to embrace and highlight the focus of what they are trying to convey to their audience with each session.
I look forward to working together and capturing the potential magnificence of your moments through my eyes and the lens of my camera.
I didn’t think I would have a “mom” wardrobe. I thought it would be easy to lose the baby weight, so I went crazy after Eleanor was born eating and drinking whatever I wanted. The weight crept on pound by pound. Now, I have what I call a mom wardrobe. What is it? Well, simply put, it consist of the only clothes in my closet that fit me and make me feel good. I only have a few pieces right now that I am really loving, this Emerson Fry “Wrap Top Blouse is one of them.
To be honest, I loved it before I had Eleanor, but I love it even more after. With the tie waist you can dictate how tight or loose you want it to fit. And the v-neck is really flattering on all chest types (yes, even my DDD). I feel good in this top. Even a little sexy. I have worn it on date nights, to a girls lunch, and even with slouchy jeans and slides to a doctors appointment. The possibility to wear it are endless! I plan to wear it with white jeans this summer and also throw it on over my bathing suit with shorts!
This past Sunday Eleanor was Christened. She wore the same dress I wore as a baby during my christening. It was such a special event being surrounded by our family and friends. Being that her outfit was decided long ago, I took time figuring out what I would wear. I wanted to wear pants and a sweater but I am still not back into my pre-pregnancy size. They were a little tight and I didn’t feel like being uncomfortable on such a special day. After finding this See By Chloe dress online, it was settled. I loved the cut, the color, and that I can wear it all spring and summer. It also didn’t hurt that the dress was 50% off! I bought it without a second thought.
Being that my husband knows all too well what Net-a-Porter is he asked what I had purchased from them. I brushed him off and said something for Eleanor. When it arrived he mentioned what a beautiful dress it was and I said, “oh thank you. It is from NAP.” He looked at me and said, “you told me you bought something for Eleanor?” I laughed and responded, “Yes, it was a dress for me to WEAR to Eleanor’s Christening.” I was busted! But sometimes it is worth skirting the truth!
If you are reading this post in a place that isn’t cold, you can probably skip over it. However, if you live in a cold place or travel to a cold place keep reading. I have solved all of your problems. Throw away any old puffer or warm weather jackets you have. You won’t need them or any future jackets. I have found the holy grail of winter coats. I will be honest, it comes with a price, however, imagine how not having to buy another cold weather jacket for as long as you want. This jacket won’t go out of style, it doesn’t lose its’ structure and it is the warmest thing money can buy.
The jacket I am talking about? The Moncler Jacket. I have wanted a Moncler jacket for years. I remember seeing them in 2014 while on a trip to Switzerland. I kept seeing this little logo on these really chic jackets. I found out they were from a company called Moncler and it was settled, I had to have one. However, they are a bit pricy (worth every penny) so I spent my money on other jackets (including a Canada Goose). No matter which jacket I bought (and didn’t love) I couldn’t get Moncler out of my head. Well 4 years later I finally got my hands on my first Moncler. I debated going with short or long, black or blue. I decided on long and black (the Taleva) and never looked back!
Y’all, I can’t even tell you how much I wear this jacket. I am not far off in saying I probably wear it 6 out of 7 days in the winter. It is so warm I can wear a t-shirt under it and be super warm in 40 degree weather. I am pretty sure there are mini heaters inside because I have never felt cold while wearing it. And warmth aside, this thing is gorgeous. I never feel like I am wearing one of those winter jackets that could also double as a construction jacket. It is so sliming and so chic!
This is way more winded than I wanted this post to be but that is just how much I adore this jacket! I want to save you all $hundreds$ if not $thousands$ of dollars wasting your money on jackets that are too bulky, not warmth enough, and/0r too trendy.
