This weekend we are having a much overdue family portraits Virginia Beach done. I cancelled the last one because, among other things, I didn’t have the right outfit for the pictures. When taking pictures professionally, I always go classic over trendy, and conservative over flashy for clothing. I also need to be comfortable, I am pear shaped, so this dress is extremely flattering. The tie wraps around the smallest part of the waist, and the skirt is full and flowy.

Below is how I would style this dress for a family portrait. For a party or wedding, I would wear a bright necklace or featherweight sweater, either fuchsia or neon yellow, and I’d wear a pencil heel or flats. My husband will be wearing Jcrew, the Chambray shorts and a white shirt. I still have to buy my baby something to wear! I will share some pictures from our session as soon as I get them!

There are some trees with seeds that only grow after a fire. Their seeds are completely sealed with a resin that have to be physically melted off by a great fire in order to propagate. So to do we as humans, gain wisdom only after great pain and suffering.*
A month ago (and one day) I lost my sister and best friend to cancer. I am still completely gutted and broken. But, I’m also so so grateful to have had felt the love that now brings me so much heartbreak. ❤️ I am so inspired by her - and I will forever live my life to honor her memory. Miss you sis ❤️

French. Toast. Egg. Bake. Save this recipe for a weekend or holiday brunch - it’s SO good and fool-proof! I’m not even a sweet person and I love it. The pecans are a non-negotiable IMO - I get honey bourbon vanilla pecans for this and it is just heavenly. Enjoy!

Peak Autumn beauty 🍂 These two pictures were taken only 10 days apart ~ look how much the color has changed! I love to go for a walk and admire all the gorgeous foliage - so much fun. This side of my house is officially my favorite: a mix of shrubs including hydrangea, blue spruce, beautyberry, euonymus, pine, boxwood, burning bush, viburnum, smokebush, and you can even see the Japanese maple peeking out from the backyard 🍂#fallfoliage #autumn
