Maternity Panama Tee Dress + A Little Birth Story

We weren’t originally planning to have maternity photos taken, but I’m so glad we did! It’s just one of those memories that’ll be nice to have documented later. In the beginning of my pregnancy, I started taking weekly bump pictures, but that fizzled out pretty quickly once I forgot to take them for a week or two (in my mind, if I didn’t have every week, it wasn’t worth finishing… which probably wasn’t true, but whatevs… that’s how my brain worked at the time…). So, a huge thank you to the lovely Amy of Amy Lynn Studios for taking these! We love how they turned out! Β  For the dress, it was a week before we were supposed to get our photos done and I realized I didn’t have anything to wear. I mean, I probably had SOMETHING I could’ve worn, but it was slim pickings at that point of the pregnancy (these were taken at 37 weeks). I scoured my closet and tried on the dresses that I had left hanging in there (I’d …

A Toaster Sweater for Engagement Photos

Okay, I’ll try to spare you the blabbering rant about how long it’s been… let’s just hope I remember what I’m doing here. Or who I am. It’s hard to know after you’ve been sucked into the abyss of wedding everything for so long. We’ve been back from the honeymoon for a couple of weeks now and I feel like I’m finally settling back in. I finally got to clear off the kitchen table this past weekend, so that was pretty amazing. I’ll get into all of the wedding DIY hoopla soon, but for now I’ll start off with a catch-up post from January :) The only non-wedding thing I made this year before jumping into the deep end… Yes, it’s the Sew House Seven Toaster Sweater 2! Made to go along with January’s Project #SewMyStyle. I was undecided about the neckline at first (I’m not usually a fan of high necklines & turtlenecks), but so many cute versions were popping upΒ on IG, I figured I had to try it out! There’s probably not much …

Lately I’ve been feeling the holiday season creeping up on us deep in my bones. Is that even possible? I don’t know, but I feel it nonetheless :) And it feels good! And how adorable is the sewing print skirt… love it! :) Lastly, I can’t seem to get enough stripes. You must check out the beautiful engagement photos and Angie’s Emery dress (on the left, photos by Ettevy Photography)… I’m such a sucker for simple, beautiful shots. Speaking of which, I’ve been taking pictures since I was old enough to hold a camera but I’ve never put in a real effort to improve my photography. So, last Saturday I took a class down in Colorado from Bart Levy. (Thanks Living Social for the great deal and helping me learn something… count that as …
