"If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down and harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before." - Mitchell Burgess
Rehearsal dinner style. Margaux wore her grandmother's antique jewelry while Patrick sported his grandfather's bolo tie and hat. Such a sweet way to honor their loved ones who couldn't be with them during their wedding weekend celebration.
As a mom and a business owner, often times I wake up, shove some food and coffee into me, and just start taking care of my family and business. However, this week, I’ve had this thought quietly reminding me that I need to be better about giving myself the freedom to take care of me. Whether it be hitting the gym, enjoying lunch without my precious computer screen, or just giving myself time to do nothing, I need to invest I myself too. We all do. No matter how busy, or how many deadlines are approaching, investing in ourselves is truly life giving. Not only for ourselves but to all the other facets in our lives that demand our attention.
This fall has been full of engagement sessions and it’s makes me so pumped for next season already. I love the extra face time with my couple’s and getting to know more of their story. This couple has known each other since their early years and began dating in high school. They brought me to their hometown for photos and I love getting to see some of the special spots where they’ve grown up together.
The lines, the light, the feeling. I've been meaning to make a visit to Greystone Mansion, and randomly stumbled upon it quite serendipitously while in Beverly Hills last month. Such a stunning and inspiring place.
