When David & I first moved down to Austin, we were thrilled to hear an old high school friend of ours relocated here with her boyfriend a few years prior. Naturally, Ellen & Scott were our first double date once we got to town and we’ve had so much fun together since!
Ellen has always been super creative and entrepreneurial—I even bought one of her purses she made out of vintage fabrics from a boutique in our hometown, years ago. Now, Ellen runs a year-round resort wear label called Elliette. Read More
I just came up on the anniversary of my first real photo shoot ever (ya know, one of people you don’t know!), Beth & Matt in Lincoln Park 4 years ago. They wanted some photos in Chicago before they moved to Austin (small world, right?). When their photos came up on her facebook timeline a few weeks ago, they coincidentally popped up on her mom’s timeline, too. Enter the amazing power of facebook. Read More
David & I took a quick 4-day trip to Grace Bay on Turks & Caicos in August. We both took some time off in between jobs and before packing up for our mov to Texas, so we thought we’d do a trip to celebrate the close of one chapter and the start of the next. David has always wanted to do a vacation to ‘really clear blue water’ and we’d heard Grace Bay is perfect for that. My goodness did it deliver! This trip was easily both of our favorite ‘relaxing’ vacations we’ve ever taken—highly recommend! Read More
Last month I had the opportunity to go to Round Top Antiques Show for the first time! I had been wanting to check it out, but the 22 miles of antiques sounded completely overwhelming so I was thrilled when I got this photo gig to take it on with seasoned vets, Object Limited (a shoppable antiques app and podcast launching soon) & Claire Zinnecker (a fabulous local ATX interior designer)! If you want to know more about the show, Claire wrote a great guide for Domino last year! You can check it out here. Read More
Over the weekend I did a mini road trip with my study abroad friends (we met in Florence 6 years ago). We always try to get together for an affordable little getaway, and it was so nice to go to the mountains this time! We did a whole lot of hiking (St. Mary’s Glacier, Fish Creek Falls, & Mount Sanitas), hit up the Strawberry Park hot springs, and all sorts of cooking, per usual! Read More
