April Williams Destination, Travel Leave a Comment

I think I need to start this post out by saying that I think this might have been one of my favorite days in Italy.  This was our first morning in Florence and we woke up to this…   I’m telling you Cristiana and Marco were the BEST hosts!  After our wonderful breakfast and what would become one of my favorite …

Unfortunately, not having slept as well as I had hoped, I actually discovered that I was sick with a bit of an intense cold and our time was all wonky, I still woke up to a beautiful morning in Mestre.  We were staying just outside the main city of Venice and it was wonderfully quiet.  The early morning birds had …

In a way I’m a little unsure how to start this story. I guess from the beginning, which is simply that I’ve dreamed of going to Italy my whole life. I really can’t tell you what had me so drawn in, but I’ve always loved Italian food, good Italian food, and the old houses and history and wrought iron and …

I’ve been a little busy the last few months…or a lot busy.  Believe me when I say I am NOT complaining!  Thank goodness for busy.  It really does keep me out of trouble.  I’ve been in what I have dubbed the “wedding tunnel”, which is exactly how it sounds, very wedding focused.  Yea, because I love, love, love weddings!  The …

A Few of my Favorite Things

I have been dying to blog about this portrait session, but I have been in the throes of wedding season and just have had my head focused on weddings, weddings, weddings.  Which, by the way, I love and don’t blog enough about I’ve realized.  They really are one of my favorite things to photograph.  I think partly because, really, my favorite …

I am not the cool one in my family, cute, sometimes funny, but not the cool one.  The cool one is my brother.  I’m not saying this in a jealous way, I’m saying this in a “yeah, I’m with the band” kind of way and in this case, that statement is completely true.  Part of what makes my brother cool …
