Friends, if you’re not on Pinterest already, save yourself some sleep and skip over this post.  Pinterest is my little late-night indulgence where I pour over recipes, house diy projects, stunning interior spaces, craft projects, photo inspirations, and everything and anything in between.

I’ve learned to be a better cook through Pinterest.  A better host.  A better business owner.  A better mother.  A better homemaker.  A better friend.  A better person…  If only life were really this perfect and beautiful.

To celebrate all of the festive dinner parties approaching this holiday, a look at some of my favorite crowd-pleasers:  dips!

I am in the middle of the craziest time of the year for us, but I couldn’t resist sharing these adorable faces and families with you.

Some of these families I’ve been photographing for 5+ years…  It’s incredible being there for every new chapter in their lives.

If I have to listen to that song Dinosaur Train one more time…. Well, you know how that goes. 😉

Wishing all of my Dinosaur, Batman, Mator, Pumpkin, Bee, Superman, Woody, Lightening McQueen, Captain Americas, Witch, Puppy, Ratatouille little lovers a happy and safe Halloween!

Lyon 2012

I visit a handful of clients in New York once a season, and typically when I plan my trips – we have sunshine and beautiful weather. Not this trip. Nope.

The forecast called for 100% rain and it would be in the 40s throughout the day with heavy winds. Unfortunately, this trip was booked months ago and I had no other available dates on my calendar until 2013 to reschedule these clients – so we made it work!

So happy to share one of my sessions that day. This brave family ventured outside to the neighboring parks and even requested some family photographs along the cobblestone streets of their Tribeca neighborhood. I absolutely love the way they turned out and adore them for asking me specifically for these shots.

I love the above capture of mom with Reeves.  New York apartments are significantly smaller than Atlanta homes, so instead of converting their much-needed family space into a oversized NY nursery, mom made one of their closets into Reeve’s room.  Isn’t it adorable?!

Ho Ho Ho!  It’s that time of the year again!  I’m thrilled to be photographing this event again at Baby Braithwaite.  They officially opened signup on Monday, and from what I hear – it’s almost completely booked.

I can’t believe this will be my 6th year photographing all of the wonderful kids at Chaffee’s store.  If you haven’t experienced it yet, please call or visit the store today to set up your appointment.  It really is magical!
