Monday’s Mash-up

Good morning friends!! How was everyone’s weekend?! As you’ll notice, today is not Monday, but I’m giving myself a little bit of grace on that fact today!  If you’ve been keeping up with me on Instagram at all (and if you’re not, you totally should for some exclusive sneak peeks!) you know that this weekend was my last wedding-less weekend until July!! Ah!! I am so excited to kick off this busy season with a bang, but it was also really great to spend time with my family and friends this weekend for one more weekend of relaxation!

Without further ado, this weekend’s happenings:

  • Friday night, Morgan and I helped our friends Brooke and Adam move into their new apartment! You may remember them from their Fell’s Point Couples Portrait Session
  • Saturday morning was spent at a baby shower and then getting ready for Ben’s prom!  This weekend little Benny went to his senior prom and it was so fun getting to see the getting-ready portion and grabbing a few photos while the gang was all together! You can see a few peeks of that below!
  • Saturday night my little sister got home from Italy and so we celebrated by picking crabs!  Man were they delicious!
  • Sunday was spent celebrating my sister’s arrival home, but also getting to see her before she takes off again for the summer to Texas!  We also got to spend time with our friends Chris and Morgan who just got back from a school semester in California!

Wife, mama, wielder of light & joy, and capturer of moments.  I thrive off of conversation and genuine connection.  In between wrangling our kiddos, and hanging my husband, you'll find me dreaming up my next idea or creative endeavour.  It's these things that culminate to give my imagery a warmth and joy to them - the greatest compliment I could receive.

Lauren grew up spending her summers at the shore, and when she and Nick got together, she couldn't help but introduce him, too!
