November 12th, 2018

Whether you’d like to admit it, or not, Thanksgiving Day is next week which means one of the BUSIEST travel days of the year is among us. Now, after living in both California and Dallas for over six years; I’ve gotten pretty good at maneuvering the airport, roadways, and trains on this upcoming holiday weekend. There is something so magical about the hustle and bustle on the road this time of year, and while some might find it stressful I’m going to share one simple way to take the stress out of your airport travel day; packing light.  …

Layering Tweed This Fall

October 15th, 2018

  This past weekend actually felt like fall in New England, as temperatures dropped to a brisk forty degrees and buses on buses of leaf peepers filled into town. It makes me smile seeing tourists and other photographers bundled up and shooting images of New England’s natural beauty, in fact, it makes me giddy. So when Sunday rolled around Matt and I decided to venture to one of my favorite towns come fall, Deerfield Massachusetts and snap some pictures before the rainstorms roll in later this week.    Initially, I woke up planning to wear jeans but with the…

Upcoming New England Fall Events, You’ll Want To Check Out

October 11th, 2018

Fall is not only the best time to visit New England, but it is also the busiest time for us local New Englanders! Between town fairs, the annual Head of Charles Regatta, cheering on the New England Patriots and ROOTING on the Boston Red Sox; weekend after weekend seems to fly by with non-stop festivities. Which got me thinking…when Matt and I first moved to Dallas , we were at a loss, come weekends, we had no idea what to do or where to go, and often found ourseleves missing out on events and fairs that we weren’t…

A weekend away has been long overdue and we decided to really make a trip of it before life gets even crazier; by enjoying some of our favorite spots along the way.

Apple Picking in Fairfield County, Connecticut

September 17th, 2018

You haven’t experienced a true New England fall until you’ve ventured out to one of our many apple orchards to partake in the longstanding tradition of apple picking. This past weekend my sister, Mom and I headed into New York City to look at colleges; and decided to make a pit stop at an infamous apple orchard in Fairfield County. We aren’t often down in Fairfield County, so I was eager to take advantage of our location and taste test a couple freshly baked cider donuts.  We drove from Stamford to Shelton and easily found the farm sitting upon…

A Taste Of Fall, In Providence Rhode Island

September 10th, 2018

  This past Saturday Matt, Tessa and I jumped into our car and drove straight to Providence, Rhode Island for a day of exploring. The last time I had a chance to visit Providence was way back in 2011, so we knew a short trip up there was long overdue, for all of us. After a quick pit stop, or two, to grab breakfast and coffee, our little crew was on our way to the capital of Rhode Island. We had so much fun exploring the different regions Providence has to offer and even made a last minute…

Strolling Through Stonington

August 27th, 2018

Last Friday my sister, mom and I decided to take a spontaneous road trip down to a town we’ve all been dying to explore, Stonington Connecticut. This specific town has been on my, to-do list for a while because you all know I love exploring the nooks and crannies of New England. In fact last summer we drove all the way down towards Stonington in hopes of shooting summer content, only to find ourselves lost and in Rhode Island, equally scenic enough. Soooo map in hand and ice coffees in cupholders we embraced on an hour ride towards…
