Recently Adored (February Favorites)

February is a special month in this family. We celebrated multiple birthdays, including my own. I'm a big believer in celebrating your special day and along with the day came some lovely gifts that have become new favorites in my life. What I'm reading: One of my gifts from Cory was a subscription to Darling Magazine, an incredible magazine that celebrates women from all walks of life doing all sorts...

An Evening Stroll Through the Streets of London

I don't care what it takes, we are moving to London. It's always been a dream of ours and it's becoming more and more of a real possibility each day. We both work from home. We both have very little tying us to stay in Portland. Following suit and making the plunge seems like the next step. Granted, it will take doing all the proper...

2015 in Retrospect

Author: Cory 2015 was one of the best and most frustrating years yet. We saw so much growth and have so much to be thankful for, but most everything that happened wasn’t necessarily things we had planned on, nor were assuming would happen. We tried the best we could to take a photo-booth strip each month, as we had done previous years. We were only one...

Summer Days & Chambray Jumpsuits

Author: Cory There is a certain level of comfort you have to have to take portraits of people. Not the self soothing comfort that calms your nerves when you feel anxious, although that certainly does help. More like the confidence and personabilty to understand, empathize, and relate to someone in any state of being. In my experience, if you can't look a person in the eye and...

A Gracious Welcome

Our time in London was so completely extraordinary that it's hard to believe that it actually happened. This was my first trip out of the continental United States and I know for fact not my last. Though I believe I may have now ruined all future stays elsewhere because of this trip. It was so lavish, luxurious and full of beauty that I can't even...

Well, try as we might, we just didn't have the time to put together a post this past Friday. Not only have we been recovering from our London & Paris trip, but we have also been...

London in Instagrams

We absolutely can't wait to go back, but till then we will have to settle for reliving our experiences through our photographs. We can't wait to share it all with you...

September in Instagrams

                OH, September, you were good to us. It seemed as though we never stopped eating, drinking and celebrating. We celebrated (and in some cases photographed) lovely unions. We had the honor and pleasure of being a part of the Portland Fashion Week Style Collective where we got to attend fashion week, made new, talented friends and interview a few of our favorite Portland institutions including Xtabay,...
