Pamela and Sean

Thursday, September 18, 2014

Pamela and Sean were only in town for one weekend but we were able to get together so I could take some portraits.  Of course, I arrived a little early on Saturday morning to find that the location I had chosen was filled with people (and a band) who were getting ready for a 5k race.  Typical.  The three of us spent a couple of minutes trying to decide if we should go elsewhere and finally just chose to embrace the situation and dance to the music (and maybe steal some balloons).  They were just the sweetest couple and so lovely in front of the camera.   These photos were shot on my Mamiya 645 with Fuji 400h film.

Movies For Autumn

Thursday, September 18, 2014

And so it always happens around this time of year that staying home and cozying up with a throw and a movie starts to sound like a more excellent choice of activity.  It is not even that the weather has gotten much cooler (although this week had a day that would border on brisk) but more about the anticipation of what is to come.  Here are some of my favorite movies that aren’t Harry Potter to watch in the fall.  I also made a conscious effort not to include any Halloweeny movies in this.  Strictly movies that to me feel like fall.

When Harry Met Sally, You’ve Got Mail, Stepmom, and Runaway Bride can all really be grouped into the same category which is feel good chick flicks with awesome sets and settings that at some point include the fall.

Dead Poet’s Society is a beautiful Robin Williams movie set on a highly attractive college campus.

Mermaids is a movie I watched on tv recently which I hadn’t seen in years and I really enjoyed it.  Parts of the movie occur in the fall and it is just the kind of movie that feels fally in general.

The Village is a movie that some people don’t like because it is one of those weird M Night Shyamalan movies but I have always enjoyed it and honestly been a touch scared by it.

The Cider House Rules.  I need to re watch this because it has been years.  Just watch it for the movie score if nothing else.  “Good night you princes of Maine, you kings of New England.”

What are some movies you want to cozy up to this fall?

Bed Options

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

Corey and I went to Charleston this past weekend so I could shoot an engagement session for some close friends (which I promise to share as soon as I get the film back) and strolling around the city made me realize how much I’ve been neglecting our landscaping (those window planters!!) and also our bedroom which has sat in no man’s land since my mom finished up the window treatments.  There is just so much to do that it is a little daunting.  One thing that I have wanted for a long time is a grown up bed complete with upholstered headboard.  It seems so luxurious.  Here are some options that I am pondering.

One – This bed is not even in the realm of possibility but I am obsessed.  Just too darn expensive.

Two – I love this one (mostly because the shape is so similar to number one), but I’m not sure if I have gone overboard with the tufted furniture, particularly since our chaise lounge has tufts on top of tufts.

Three – Simple.  Classic.  This is a good option.
