one decision can change everything.

•••

It was just one decision. One simple little change is all it took. That one decision led Mario to Katie, who we all knew had been patiently and faithfully waiting for the right man to come along. And Mario came in at just the right time.

Like many of us modern daters, these two sweethearts met…

breathtaking.

Can you believe that until Jeremy & Christa’s Big Sur Portrait Session, I had never been south of Carmel? All this time I’ve lived by the coast and never did I venture south past those luscious cerulean waters of Clint Eastwood’s town. And even then, I hadn’t been to Carmel until just a few years ago. WHAT? Right?

Michael and I left early knowing it would be…

wonder.

For the last seven days or so, the word wonder has been on my heart. Last week, I spent a day in Carmel with my mama. Carmel is home to the the most cerulean of seas, whitest sands and sweeping views for miles and miles. The minute we pull up to Ocean Street, the windows go down and my lungs fill with fresh, ocean mist. I revel at…

49 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS!

Guys, this is literally my favorite season of the year. The street I grew up on is lined with trees that are chameleons of orange and red. The mornings are crisp, lightly lined with ominous fog while the afternoons reach a high of 75. Beanies, sweaters and warm boots are

Kristin + Drew // Richland Creek Greenway Nashville Portrait Session

In the last 30 days, I’ve been on six different airplanes in five different airports over 15 states and in three big cities. I think I’m all traveled out for the rest of the year, friends.

But I have to say that Nashville, Tennessee, was not at all what I expected. I knew that it would be beautiful and filled with music everywhere you turn. The airport alone was…
