a day in the life.

Austin and I are nearing two years of marriage. Some days it feels like we're veterans of being wed, and others it's appallingly obvious we're still learning (and I'm sure we always will). We documented the pinpoint of year two in marriage with Hannah Merritt who joined us in our home for a lifestyle session; she poured into our home with her whisper of a southern accent (it's adorable) and captured our story honestly, transparently, and comfortably. She arrived as a sought-after professional and left a friend. 

 

If it's after 3 PM, you'll likely spot me with a glass of red in hand.

Our home welcomes a handsome evening light that chose to be extra present this February afternoon.

our beloved tire swing. Austin and I knew from a very early stage of dating that we'd choose to spend our lives together. one early fall afternoon, we collected a few foraged materials to establish this swing. and now, I have the privilege of it waiting for me each day.
