mommy and son shoot by diana marie photography

Sweet Diana was in town back in July and shot these amazing images of me and Links. I love how they capture the moments of quiet simplicity in our everyday. It was so great to finally meet her in person and have the honor of being in front of her camera. So excited she’s moving to the East Coast in just a few months! Hoping we get to see a lot more of her. :]

our family shoot by anne robert photography | featured on style me pretty

This past April, when Lincoln was almost 3 months old, the super sweet and talented Anne Robert came to document a weekend morning in our home. These are just a small handful of favorites. The shoot was featured yesterday morning on Style Me Pretty and I have to say, it’s pretty darn thrilling being featured on that lovely little site. Thank you, ladies! And Anne, we’ll cherish these images forever. They’re more awesome than we could’ve asked for. See the post here and the full photo gallery here.

From the post:

The plan was to move to DC right after our wedding. Despite multiple trips and our diligent apartment hunting efforts before then, we found nothing. Everything was either too small, too expensive, too far away or had carpet. Back in Chicago, my anxiety levels were rising at the thought of not having a home to move to. The day before our wedding, Andrew, notoriously compulsive, called to compound my stress level by announcing that he had signed a lease, all on his own. The price was right, it was big enough, in a great location, and there were hardwood floors. So I knew there had to be something seriously wrong with it. The perfect apartment? Just like that?

Fast forward to moving day. The lobby wasn’t very promising, and the hallways were reminiscent of The Shining, so I held my breath as we turned the doorknob. What I experienced next was most unexpected. It felt like home. All my stress unraveled, and my heart swelled with the knowledge that we’d have many beautiful memories in this place with pink bathroom tiles. That I belonged here and it was perfect for the two of us. And two and a half years later, the three of us.

Interior decorating quickly became a hobby, and I’ve loved putting together all the details of our apartment. We both work from home, Andrew for the government and I own Ink Lemonade, a calligraphy and paper design company, so we needed to combine style, comfort, and function in our little 900 square foot, one bedroom space. With the addition of our little man, we really needed to get creative and opted for a nursery corner in our room.

So welcome to our home, SMPers! Needless to say, we spend a lot of time here, and when we’re not working, we make fancy breakfasts and spend an embarrassing amount of time in bed cuddling with Pickle (whose real name is Lincoln). Cue the amazingly talented Anne Robert to capture us recreating a weekend morning. Albeit with nicer clothes than usual. Thanks for stopping by! But before you go, take a look out that big window overlooking the treetops of Glover Park. It’s our favorite thing. We’ve watched many a sunset from that window and the seasons changing too.

family shoot inspiration

Months before Linky’s arrival, I started a Pinterest board with some of my favorite family shoots from around the web (our first one is this weekend!). I knew I wanted simple, candid photos in our home, with great natural light, and just us being us on a typical Saturday morning. These are some of my favorites:

P.S. If you’re in the DC area, my super talented photographer friend Diana is in town doing shoots in early June. Contact her if you’re interested!

maternity photoshoot

My dear friend Lauren captured these photos of us while we were in New York at 32 weeks. Most of them were bare belly photos of just me, so I’ll spare you those, but these are some of my favorites we took outside. Thanks, Lauren!

birds of a feather photoshoot | featured on style me pretty florida

One of my goals this year was to have an invitation suite or calligraphy project published on a wedding or paper blog. Just 3 days into the new year I found out that this amazing inspiration shoot you’re about to see was scheduled to appear on Style Me Pretty Florida this morning. Needless to say, lots of happy dancing ensued and even the little guy did some flips in my belly.

So grateful that I was a part of such a talented and creative team of people. The gorgeous images are all by my good friend Diana Lupu and all of the incredible details were styled by the fabulous Kasey Davenport of Kasey D Weddings. And aren’t the models ridiculously good looking? A list of the other talented vendors that made this shoot possible is available here.

When Kasey told me her vision for the shoot, I was immediately on board and got to work on this feather and antler suite. The originals are designed with charcoal and pastels to exude the warmth and texture of crackling logs in a fireplace. The lettering on the envelope was painted with a custom-mixed turquoise gouache. It was sooo difficult choosing only a few photos to post, but you can see the full gallery here.
