It’s been a while since I’ve posted here… so much to catch up on! I’ll be posting up a bunch of new weddings and other sessions soon, but I thought I’d post up about my big news first:)My husband and I are the proud new parents of a little boy! It has definitely been a lifestyle change for us, since it also meant moving out of NYC and to the suburbs of Long Island (it’s been a busy year for us!), but it has been such a joy to be a parent. I am so in love with this little guy!

He was a December baby, so I had to break out the Santa hat;)

My husband and I recently took a trip to Austin, TX to visit our very dear friends Jen and Chuck and their new arrival, Nicklas!:)We had a great time and not only did we get our fill of adorable baby-ness, but we also ate some amazing Mexican food and authentic Texas BBQ (see the images at the bottom of the post ;)) Thanks to Jen and Chuck for hosting us and we can’t wait to see you guys again! xoxo

When my husband and I took a trip to Italy and Germany last year, for some reason I became obsessed with doors and windows. There is so much texture and character everywhere you look, and the doors and windows just stuck in my mind. I turned it into a project and had fun putting together this slideshow some of my shots:)
