Tiffany | Fall Portrait Session in Orange County

Hello all! We’re in the middle of October and that means it’s pumpkin season! Nothing says October more than a visit to the good old pumpkin patch. My friend Tiffany wanted some fall portraits and we knew the local pumpkin patch would be a warm and festive location. Surprisingly, it started pouring the moment we stepped into the patch!

We took the opportunity before the next downpour to take our photos, and the stormy sky …

3 Days in Denver: First Time in Denver Things to Do + Itinerary

Hello everyone! So I’ve been looking over my pictures from my weekend trip to Colorado last year, and I’m really missing the crisp air and open land. We went to Denver on a whim: it was almost Labor Day weekend and we wanted to travel somewhere. But of course on a holiday weekend flight prices skyrocketed—except for flights to Denver. We had never been to Colorado, Denver sounded like a cool city, and we could cross Rocky Mountain National Park off our national park list—all for around $160 round trip! So here are Denver weekend trip ideas and a few …

I mean, a museum filled with Instagram-worthy photo backdrops and ice cream samples–what’s not to like? How to Get Museum of Ice Cream Tickets Even though the museum was clearly on every millennial’s must-go lists, I didn’t expect the hype to be that real.
