I met Taylor last summer when she was a bridesmaid in Jackie + Dan's beautiful Cincinnati wedding. I was 8 months pregnant and sweet Taylor would check on me every couple of hours to make sure I had eaten and had a chance to sit down so naturally, I liked her right away. Fast forward 10 months and we're rendezvousing in Indianapolis for her own engagement session. I couldn't be more excited to have the opportunity to celebrate with she and Kevin -- they're a really good match, you guys. xo
During our last jaunt down South I had the pleasure of working with Virginia Petitte, the owner and curator of the lovely online boutique Addiah. We shot for her Spring Collection and couldn't have asked for lovelier weather or better models. I was honored and delighted when she asked if I'd answer a few questions for her blog, Addiah Inspired, (mostly because questionnaires are my favorite), and she generously let me ramble on but I so enjoyed the opportunity to reflect on my goals and be reminded of why I love what I do -- so thank you, Virginia for providing that.
So, if you've always wondered whether I like coffee or tea, what my favorite picture is or what I'd be if I wasn't a photographer, grab some coffee and pretend like we're having this conversation. Oh! Virginia is also one of the fine folks providing goodies and giveaways at this weekend's SNAPSHOP, so get excited.
More film, more film! Ben was kind enough to snap some photos of my sweet little biscuit and I around her 6 month birthday and I do say, I think he did a pretty great job -- thanks, boo.
Consider one apricot in a basket of them. It is very much like all the other apricots -- an individual already, skin and seed.
Now think of this day. One you will probably forget. The next breath you take, a long drink of air. Holiday or not, it doesn't matter.
A child is born and doesn't know what day it is. The particular joy in my heart she cannot imagine. That taste of apricots is in store for her.
