orlich | family

dusting off the blog... 
i hope you're all well and enjoying this beautiful + extra-long fall we're having! 
in my absence from social media, i've been busy shooting away and am finally catching up on my galleries. 
 i'm posting this gallery as we speak and had to share some favorites from my session with the orlich family. 
 beautiful lake superior, the woods, + the cutest little family ever made for a wonderful morning.

sweet summer on superior | child session

freckled faces, lashes for days, + the lake superior shore... 
 summertime in upper michigan and four of my favorite little humans on the planet.

summer nights | my life

dirty + chipped toenails, perfect golden evening light, wild flowers, flips, + lots of giggles... 
i love summer nights + i love these two.

also, i've never been presented a flower by foot before. 
(thank you so much my darling eden reese!)

enjoy these fleeting nights + these moments with your own, my friends.

san francisco to big sur, ca | let's go

2016 has been a cool year for us as it has marked a decade for many important dates.
our adelyn turned 10,
our marriage turned 10, + our sweet furry girl, kenzie is 10 today!
apparently 2006 was a big year for us! 

to celebrate our 10 year, we decided we'd go on a trip - just us!
we had a budget set and spent months searching flights, researching cities, etc.
from the beginning, san francisco was a major contender.

while getting more into the search, kris pulled up pictures of the drive along the coast from san francisco to big sur and i was sold!

we spent another month obsessively checking flight prices and things weren't looking good for san francisco as the price had doubled since our search began.
we gave ourselves our anniversary (may 13th) as our deadline to book and when we arrived home from the dinner that night and hopped on the computer, 
the flight price had dropped to $163!

we booked.

below is a look into our trip with images taken both on our iPhones + my camera.
i left commentary for those who are interested. if you're not just scroll on by! :)

san francisco | day I

 we flew into oakland which is about 28 miles east of san francisco. 
our plane tickets were much cheaper with this option!
