Hello friends and family! One of my goals this December is to blog more about my personal life! Have you seen the last three personal posts? Yay! Keith and I started doing financial coaching last month and I realized that we need to make monthly goals. Small, achievable goals. I was also inspired by Lara [...]
Not too long ago I had the immense privilege of learning calligraphy from a dear friend, Stephanie Fishwick at Rock Paper Scissors. It was so refreshing to start a new hobby that doesn’t include any technology. I was so inspired! Thanks Stephanie for sharing your love of hand lettering with us.
Earlier this fall, Keith and I were very blessed to win a tour of the new Virginia Distillery. A huge thanks to New City Arts for having the raffle and Anthropologie for hosting! We had a lovely morning with Pat and John. Keith and I both loved learning about the distilling process and the story [...]
Happy Friday! These chickens at the Inn at Westwood Farm just make me so happy. I want some!
We’ve been very busy traveling to California for a wedding and the start of wedding season! This picture is techincally from Easter but oh man, its killing me today. Love these two!
Keith, Edith, and I a great family weekend in April enjoying the Tom Tom Founders Festival! The amazing ladies at Beyond the Flavor also put on a great feast at the Tom Yum fest! Spring in Charlottesville is the best!
As you may know, Keith and I have been doing the Whole30 for the month of April. After having Edith, I just thought that my pregnancy weight would fall right off (hah! right?!). I casually exercised but never really committed to making any big changes. Finally last month, I was feeling so unhealthy that I [...]
Hi everyone! I told you about my new personal project and then I totally missed the month of March. Thats motherhood for you. Progress not perfection right? A couple of weeks ago, I had the profound pleasure of photographing Ecotulips up in Madison, VA for the Cville Weekly. I can’t wait to share the whole shoot [...]
After having Edith, I did not want to be in front of the camera. Even being a photographer, I knew how precious those moments were but I felt so unattractive and lets be honest, fat. So when the opportunity to go to Hawaii came up and be photographed by Jonathan Canlas, I said to myself [...]
Hi everybody! A couple of months ago, I read this post from Lara Casey and immediately shut my computer. I sat Edith down in the kitchen with her carrot and shot a roll of film. I was really struck by this quote “Ultimately, you have a choice: take the shot or let life pass you [...]
Heaven on earth! The second leg of our adventure in Hawaii included the amazing island of Oahu, the cool town of Laie, so many garlic shrimp, new friends, and FIND 2.0. Jonathan Canlas and Kristen Kalp totally kicked my butt in the best way possible. It was just what Keith and I needed to refuel our marriage and [...]
Enjoy our little lady’s first Christmas with my side of the family!
This is how I finish a roll before I sent it to the lab! Little girl shoes may be a weakness!
Keith and I have had a year full of the richest blessings. We got invited into the lives of ten amazing couples on the most exciting day of their lives.We traveled to New York City when I was seven months pregnant for two amazing engagement sessions. We welcomed our sweet baby girl, Edith Margaret, into the world [...]
Recently I had the distinct pleasure of attending Jonathan Canlas’ FIND workshop. I was actually supposed to go to Atlanta in March but being eight months pregnant Jon, (no questions asked) allowed me to switch to Charleston instead. And that is what I love about Jon and his workshop. His life and his photography [...]
Here are a few of my favorite things! Keith and I are obsessed with eating PHO. I read this daily. Our dog Pio is pretty cool but he hates the cold. I’m trying to live a better story (and read more). I like to spend my free time watching this. I love shooting film. [...]
In July, my family travelled up to Pennsylvania for a family reunion with my Mom’s side of the family. My 93 year old Grandmother organized the whole thing. What a woman! Enjoy!
One of my goals this year is to print more photos of our little family. It is such a good visual reminder of God’s goodness to us! Whats the point of taking beautiful photos if they just sit on my computer? Can I get an amen? (thanks to my Mom for the beautiful quilt as a [...]
these precious moments. I can’t believe my maternity leave is almost over! Keith and I can’t wait to celebrate with Laura Grace and Michael in a few short weeks! (iphone photo taken by keith)
Stella and Edith meet for the first time. So much love.
Blogging has been sparse my friends. Thats because I have been staring at this little beauty for four (oh man, now 5 and a half) weeks! Can you believe she is a month old? I can’t. It is flying by. We are so grateful for the gift of this sweet child! Introducing…. Edith Margaret Taylor [...]
We have this silly little tradition in the Taylor Family. We like to name things…cameras, computers, cars, and now toys for our daughter. I found this gem at a yard sale a couple weeks ago and Keith has affectionately named him “Monsieur Moose” (said in a french accent of course). Since he is from Ikea, [...]
