One great victory over the past few months has been reclaiming the 6:30-7 P.M. timeframe. Ideally, by this point, Dave is off of work and we’re done with dinner. It’s one of the few windows of time during the week when all four of us are together as a family, so we wanted to take […]

We did shoots all over the Southeast, and one of my main roles was what you might call model management.

I actually steered clear of white button-down shirts […]

Last year, Dave’s parents moved from Dave’s childhood home to a cozy lake house in the nearby village of Skaneateles. They had always loved Skaneateles Lake, but never anticipated finding a house there. Midway through 2020, though, they found a unicorn of a property that needed some work, but that had easy access to the […]

Friends! Let’s play a little catch-up. This spring has marked an exciting new season for me, both professionally as I’ve been working on something new (SO much to share in the coming months, I promise!) and personally as Charlie and Azelie have hit some fun milestones. Charlie wrapped up his preschool year last week, which […]
