My photography story starts like this … Once upon a time, in a tiny town in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont (yep, they still have kingdoms there – this one is on the border of New Hampshire and Canada), there lived a fiery little girl with marble blue eyes, a head full of unruly blonde […]

 Everything changed in that single moment. My chest felt the weight of my son’s head for the very first time and with teary eyes, my husband beamed at us from ear to ear. The person I had been up until that very moment was no longer the same. And I knew this was the […]

I’ve gotten a lot of questions lately about traveling with kids and how we do it without going insane. Those of you that know me, know that I’m travel obsessed. It’s one of the most important things in my life to show my children the world we live in. From Jersey to Mexico, China to […]

These days I’m all about convenience, ease and simplifying. I’m also all about strong coffee and stiff cocktails, but that’s a whole other story. Seriously though, these are my top 3 life changing apps. And I’m all about good life hacks. Anyone else with me? #1: Calm This app not only has me sleeping better, […]

This summer we purposely slowed down. Like 1980 summer slow. And it’s been incredible. We spent many of our slow summer days splashing around the pool, playing endless hours of trains, dreaming, and talking. Lots of talking. Like, days on end, talking.

If you know me at all, you know I’m travel obsessed. Adding stamps to our passports is a favorite hobby of mine. I’m fluent in flight searching and a ridiculous Airbnb locator (this is my new favorite in Cape May Point). Daydreaming of tropical locations, tan lines, cold beverages on the beach, sandy toes, salty […]

As I drove out of the parking lot, I could hear her crying. Tears filled my eyes. A golf ball sized gulp formed in my throat. My knuckles turning white as I pointed my car towards home. The last time I felt this way we were driving away from Children’s Hospital, leaving Willa behind at […]

On my first day of photography school (which feels like a lifetime ago), a professor said to our class, you don’t simply take a photo, you feel it. I remember thinking, “Ummm … ok, buddy. Whatever you say.” Ironically, almost 2 decades later, his words still echo in my ears every single time I take […]

In the end, all our children will have are memories and photos. Do them a favor, get in the photo. Don’t wait for a perfect hair day. Or until you lose the extra baby weight. Just get in the photo. In the end, they’ll be thankful you did.   Mamas, grab your kids and join us for […]

The holidays are here (say whaaaaaaaaat?!). Many of us are starting to think about (or if you’re like me, stress about) all-things-holidays. Like what the hell am I going to get my 4 year old this year? Can I just give the baby some wrapping paper to rip up and an empty box to climb in? (Don’t […]
