My pal Megan is WITH CHILD and we celebrated earlier this month up at her adorable dollhouse home with a sweet baby shower. Major congrats to Megan and her husband Gery! Their daughter is due in January! So crazy. BABIES. I wish Anabela could have magically teleported to the party, but at least there’s some coverage of her impressive baby gift skills on her blog. I snapped a quick pic of her cute handmade blanket waiting on the baby’s crib, the little gray sheep is the best part. We had lots of good snacks and I took some pretty funny photos of Megan cradling an amazing/terrifying fairy princess doll that she got as a gift from one of her mother’s friends, whose mother is a doll collector? Something like that. I’m also seriously impressed at the dress collection this baby is going to have, we’ve been joking around about all the baby photoshoots we will have to do but now it seems inevitable, haha. Baby stuff isn’t really my thing but it’s fun when it’s with your friend! And extra fun when your friend has crazy vintage baby bonnets and dresses with kittens coming out of the pockets (cred to Jen for that one!)

For now, more cute stuff.



Over the next few weeks I’m going to share some of the weddings that we shot this summer, as Wild Hearts. We are booking for 2014 now, please get in touch soon if you’re interested in having Wild Hearts document your wedding, some dates are already reserved, so get in touch soon. This summer I got to experience a bunch of fun weddings, and the photos I’m posting today are a selection from Lindsay & Alec’s wedding at Union/Pine. You might remember their engagement photos that I posted forever ago. Cuties! They love to joke around and laugh, which is probably why we get along- also this is the #1 shared quality between all the couples who end up hiring me, haha. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

If you’d like to see a few more photos and read more from Lindsay, you can see their wedding posted over at 100 Layer Cake. Industrial opulence!! Yes.

A few weeks ago I shot the Ay Marieke fall jewelry collection made by my talented friend, Marika. We got to realize some dark, romantic, painterly dreams in these images. One of my favorite, but subtle additions to her line this fall is a 10k gold version of the ojo ring. I have this in silver and wear it every single day, it is one of those perfect rings that you can’t even feel once you put it on. Autumn has undeniably arrived.
