The Women's Wellness Retreat


In today's stress-filled world, everyone needs a chance to step back and relax.  Some people go on a vacation, a stay-cation, or go on a long weekend somewhere nearby with friends, family, or on their own.  In books and a little bit in person, I've heard whisperings of another kind of life-break:  the retreat.  A chance to step back and recharge or heal from the stresses of life and reassess and relax.  I know I used to get so stressed out, the only thing that

Somewhere Over the Rainbow

I feel like I am constantly in this in-between feeling, longing for more, wanting to be more successful, and yet striving to be wholly and truly satisfied with the journey.  Because I think it's only natural to be driven by anxiety — wanting more engagement on social media, wanting to form more connections with brands etc., but really, creative energies have to be driven by the genuine love of making.  Seriously, the most fun for me is getting to finally shoot

2020 Book Haul

So I'll be the first to admit, I'm not a huge book reader.   I know and see so many people get so much out of reading and are excited to share and talk about their favorites or current ones with others.   I've always felt some sort of disconnect in this area, as I feel like I miss a lot of references to literature or even

Our Home Story: Redesigning the Bedroom

This project is the last of the three major home decoration projects I set out on last fall, and this has been the biggest one to get nailed down, for sure.  Some of you may remember back last summer/ fall when I had an Insta story saga about carrying a green bookshelf 12+ blocks home from the vintage shop, and also one about painting a bedside table for Andrew.  So clearly it's been a while since those stories aired, but everything is finally in place, and we got the wall painted!  I'm so excited to share our finished bedroom design!

Gothic Vines

When I first envisioned this shoot, I definitely wasn't thinking it would come out looking so... dark and gothic.  Definitely victorian and castle-y, but gothic?  Not really!

But guys... I am loving it!!!  I've really wanted to go in a more fairytale-esque direction with these shoots and this one is definitely doing that.

So enjoy this winter gothic visual fairytale!

Just a Little Sweater Love

Oh sweaters, the soft warm hug of winter clothing!

There's something about a snuggly sweater that makes the winter days a little more comforting and enjoyable.  I wanted to come on here and talk about some of my favorite sweaters in my wardrobe and why I love them.   As with anything in fashion, there are so many different sizes, weights, silhouettes and styles for sweaters out there!

Hearts a Flutter

Here's to a little celebration that we finally got some flakes around these parts!  Not too much, and not too little, but just the perfect little blanket to softly cover the landscape in a fluffy layer of flakes!  So I was excited to get out to the woods and shoot this little valentine's vignette with my feather hearts!

The Wedding Story: Our Ceremony

Photographs by KMP © 2019

There is so much to plan in a wedding.  You have to make decisions on everything from the invitations to the flowers to the logistics of how it all gets set up, what food you'll serve, how to give directions on how to get places, and how you'll get places... the list is seemingly never ending, and everything feels so big, and so important.

Yet, when it came to putting together our ceremony, everything felt like it came into place in a very intuitive way.   It was like, everything came from the heart, and we knew in our hearts that the decisions we made were the right ones, because they came so intuitively from our hearts.

A Mindful of Miniatures and Ice Cream Hearts

A touch of whimsy for you on this first outfit post in February.  Despite cold temperatures, I'm having a ball playing with scale with this little mini-house today.  You never quite know how the scenes you dream up in your head will turn out when you actually get to go shoot — but I'd say this one got pretty close!  I saw these little baby conifers growing at one of our nearby parks and this idea of scale hit me, so I had to bring it to life!
