on sunday evening i knew this week was going to be a busy one. in spite of this, you and i made it to friday, friend! the week is nearly done and that means it’s time for some currently obsessed…
this image of my client, sam, from her engagement session i posted yesterday. i think it’s the perfect photo for friday morning, right? it’s almosttttttt the weekend =).
normally i like to type my quotes into my custom-formatted image (have you seen those yet? they’re kind of a new thing around here ;)). but this one and its accompanying image work together so well that i had to share them as a unit. (maybe i like it so much because the typography reminds me of my brand… hmmm. =))
this song “cascada” by jesse cook. i love smooth jazz-spanish guitar-rumba-type music & his makes me feel as if i were sitting in the front row of a flamenco show in andalucía. 100% peace-inducing. i hope his notes lead you into a relaxing weekend!
lots of love,
as a photographer i have seriously been blessed to work with the most amazing clients. i absolutely love my job! when sam and mike approached me about photographing them, i was so excited!! mike proposed to sam at the same restaurant where they had their first date. the two of them bonded over a mutual love of music, and for that reason they decided to do part of their engagement session in a local record store! they are the most adorable couple and we had so much fun during their session.
i love this portrait of sam.
mike did a great job with the ring– it’s so unique. AND he used jigglypuff to propose. win-win.
smash records was so cool about letting us shoot there =).
and then we hit the streets! i absolutely loved all the colors in these images!! mike and sam are so vibrant.
i dunno about you, but i just about died of happiness when i saw their matching red shoes. i loveeeeeee accent red!

“linguine con uovo sode?” what on earth is that, you ask?? well, it’s pasta with a hard boiled egg! the other day i decided to make some pasta and was craving a hard boiled egg so i thought i’d throw one in!
the process was simple:
one of the most beautiful things about life is that we don’t know what’s going to happen next. (i’ve written about how wonderful life is when we let it unfold here.) yet it’s so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of things, especially during this time of the year, that when i’m faced with unanswered questions i forget about the beauty of mystery and think I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN! (is it just me?) some days i have to remind my anxious self that the best things are worth waiting for, and that love, life, and just about anything else happens on its own time, not mine. and thank heavens for that.
yours in patience,
