This time of year always makes me think of the country.
Chunky knit blankets and Earl Grey tea.
Wouldn’t it be nice to get cozy here on a Sunday morning?

This little ray of sunshine goes by the name of Rella.
She’s the six-month-old daughter of my good friends, Lindsey and Kyle. I honestly don’t believe there’s a cuter family out there!
Lindsey and I were neighbors on the third floor of Cedar Hall our freshman year at Roger Williams. And within a year and a half, we both found ourselves ditching the cold for sunny San Diego. Over the last decade I’ve watched my BFF grow into such an amazing woman, and now, an incredible mama.
My camera and I were lucky enough to spend the day with these beautiful people a few weeks ago and I’m already looking forward to our next photo shoot! I’d say Miss Rella’s first birthday, but I doubt that I’ll be able to wait that long…
Chubby feet ;)
This last family shot was taken at the end of Lindsey and Kyle’s street in Cardiff by the Sea – one of the dreamier neighborhoods in SD. So picture perfect!
All along I wanted my bridesmaids to wear different dresses in different colors, thinking it would be easier for each girl to find something SHE liked and felt comfortable in. But while pretty dresses are easy to come by, coordinating the same vibe was a bit trickier. Luckily, we found bling to be our common denominator. The dazzling beauties above (from left) are Caroline (BFF), Lindsey (sister, MOH), and Lindsey (BFF).
I was so happy to see Uncle Bill sporting the salmon (not pink, but salmon) tie I picked out for him! Lookin’ good, El Fuego!
This lineup is kinda cheesy, I know, but it makes me smile and I’m loving the colors. The talented Mr. Bryan Miller shot this one in film :) :)
Ahh, so many good laughs with these ladies! They are my family and I felt so lucky to have them by my side that day. Love you babes to the moon and back!
My obsession for coffee table books has been on the rise lately. Here are a few shots from my latest purchase, The Edible Selby.
Chef and restaurant owners Eric Werner and Mya Henry created Hartwood, aka a magical smorgasbord hidden in the heart of Tulum.
This colorful menu has me drooling, but I can’t tell if I’m more inspired to grab my apron or my camera… Feast your eyes on more photos at theselby.com. You’re welcome!
Our photographer came down to my dressing room to tell me that we’re ready for the “first look.” He said that Ryan was already waiting for me outside.
He also told me to quietly tip-toe up to Ryan and tap him on the shoulder, which I did. But instead of turning Ryan around to face the camera behind us, I spun myself around to face him! With 10 million other things on my mind, including the 90 degree weather, I completely missed the boat on the whole concept of capturing Ryan’s expression. He even cried a little! So yeah, I totally screwed that up.
I didn’t even realize what I had done until two days after the wedding – it just hit me out of the blue. But I still love the pics and they make me laugh to think about it now. So typical of us.
