By The Sea Shore // Spring Lake

Sometimes there’s nothing better than a weekend at the beach… with puppies. Last weekend we were only there for a day and half – but next weekend my BF and I are heading to Spring Lake, NJ for 4 whole days. That’s right – 4 days of beach!! Magical.

You might recognize my pup Louis in these pics- the other 2 are my BF’s parents dogs – Rocky and Ellie.

PS – Happy Shark Week!

I’m so excited about this post – the star of which is the fab Riva bag by Kelly Moore. I’ve long been searching for a cute, compact camera bag that I can tote to events {including fashion shows!} This chic little bag totally fits the bill. It’s stylish, light and it fits my camera and 2 lenses {plus has pockets for other essentials.} Yay! Check out all of Kelly Moore’s bags here
Can’t wait to give it a run this Fashion Week! 

Playing Catch Up

Eee! Life has been so go – go – go lately I’ve hardly had time to blog. Here are just a few quick things I wish I had time to say more about (you’ll have to use your imagination…) 

The Elie Saab Couture show was BEYOND amazing. BEYOND. 
Kate Middleton looked super chic at Wimbledon. (ok, ok – nothing new here) 
I mean, what can I say about this? There are no words. 
!!! Only 2 weeks left to wait! #USA #USA

Summer-Grams

Just a peek at the past week in Instagram pics…

Sunsets, beach fires, hot dogs and fireworks over the lake. It’s been a perfect Northern Michigan vacation. (if only it could last forever…)

Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

Yesterday I spent the day sitting in the sun, sipping champagne and feeling quite fancy at the Polo Classic. The weather was perfect and I only got a tiny bit sun burned… here are a few of my favorite moments – fashion & otherwise… 
Happy Sunday!

Black/White/Beautiful

Sometimes there’s nothing quite as stunning a a black and white photo… they can be deep and dramatic…
…or cute and fresh!

But always chic.

Today we mailed out our (Clayton and Kelsey’s) wedding invitations! Still can’t show all of them since, well, it’s Sunday and the mail hasn’t even been picked up yet… but soon! Here’s a sneak peek!

Dear Obama, please attend! That would pretty much make my life. Thanks!



PRITI & MANISH

Hello darlings! Today I bring you an engagement shoot, shot by me! Congratulations to Priti and Manish– an absolutely adorable and completely-in-love couple, getting married in Georgia later this year. We did a NYC engagement session at their favorite Manhattan locations to celebrate their love! Check out my photography website, here. And enjoy the pictures below :).

Manish and Priti had their very first date at the MET.


Sometimes, the outtakes are my favorite pictures, like the one above where Manish picked on Priti for not holding her “heart” up correctly. 🙂

Metropolitan museum love.

Stay tuned for pictures from their friend’s baby shower, coming soon! For now, happy spring NYC. And for even more pics from the session, click.


Weekend Wanderings

It was freezing this weekend in New York. But our friends Meghan and Mike were visiting from DC and we ventured out into the cold for some adventures- most involving food, all involving my new camera (a Canon rebel t1i that I am in love with…) What did you do this weekend?
