woods family

if you thought this mother and baby were adorable, check out the rest of the family! just darling, sweet, beautiful people, all of them.


i heart ny

i'm back to report that the whole experience was amazing! everything was just how you'd imagine it. it was like being in a real life magazine. now i need a craft room that looks like martha's, right now everything's on the living room floor. martha would not approve.

tinsel trading co. - vintage and new ribbons, trims, flowers, nicknacks, i wanted one of everything in here.
paper presentation - papers, stationary, craft supplies, everything you could think of.
moomah - cafe for the budding artist, kid's parties and crafts, super cute decor, delicious smoothies.
kate's paperie - papery goodness of every kind.
dean & deluca - sophisticated grocery store, i wanted two of everything in here (i was hungry).
john derian co. - unique gifts and trinkets, unusual, expensive, and super cool. (martha was in there shopping two days earlier).
anthropologie - clothing & home, could the store displays be any more off the charts? how do they come up with this stuff?

i didn't make it to dylan's candy shop, i ran out of time. i have to catch it next time i go. what are your new york faves?

it's the most wonderful time of the year

i can't believe that it's already time to start thinking about christmas! if you're thinking about having a gingerbread house decorating party, head on over to one charming party this week for ideas and free printables.



i'm off to nyc to be on the martha stewart show! it's crazy, i'm nervous, i'm excited too. happy thanksgiving.


models or hottles?

both (well not professional models, but gorgeous people none the less). i love the hottle family! and their dog too.


5 boys 2 girls

seven kids! you would think that taking pictures of such a huge family would be a disaster, but this family rules. they have the most darling, smart and well behaved children. I had the privilege of taking this family's pics last year and we were able to meet up at the beach this year for a quick shoot. family of nine... anytime.


morris fam

after all the rain we've had i was really ready for a relaxing day at the beach. so i met up with this nevada family down at silver strand beach. this hot mama is a photographer herself (blue bird photography) and when you're the one taking all the pics you rarely get pictures of yourself, so we had fix that.


blonde beauty

while we were out shooting, she was getting honks and whistles and it's not hard to see why. can you believe this darling girl comes from a family of seven brothers!
