Location  •   Groton, Connecticut

Let’s talk about how to embrace feeling lost by redirecting your thoughts! Recently I’ve been feeling lost – and it’s not the greatest feeling. Usually, I’m on deadline and respond to all emails by the end of a workday. Up until June, I felt good about where I was at in life and where I wanted to go. But once summer hit, I began to worry about creating new adventures and where those adventures would take me. Initially, I wanted to push away the feeling of being lost. As someone who considers themselves Type-A I started sorting out…

Location  •   Nantucket, Massachusetts

A popular request I find in my inbox asks about couples photo shoots. Questions range from how to style a shoot to how I convince Matt to participate. Relationship photo shoots can be hard to pull off. Even Matt would admit he is a hard model to work with – from eating the props to talking during snaps – nothing is picture perfect behind the scenes. After creating these shoots for years I’ve learned a thing or two about pulling off a couples photo shoot that’s Instagram worthy. Whether you’re a photographer looking for new content or a blogger dreaming of…

Location  •   Fenwick, Connecticut

Come summer, the best outdoor activity in New England is golf! New Englanders know a thing or two about landing a hole-in-one while taking in the view.   I receive several emails a day asking for recommendations on just about everything such as, where to purchase a home in New England, where to take a boyfriend golfing, and lighthouses to visit on a date.

So, I headed straight for Lilly Pulitzer’s…

From lobster rolls to adventures in Nantucket, a summer trip to New England should be a rite of passage! However, if you grew up here you might be taking it for granted – as Matt and I sometimes do.

Lighthouses are great for romantic pictures, good…
