Madeleine : Summer Portraits

The end of summer is approaching fast. This morning was actually begging me to put on a chunky sweater and start wishing for a wood burning stove. But at least let me savor it a little bit longer, if only through some pretty photos:)

Madaleine is a lovely actress/model studying in theater in Connecticut. She also happens to be our neighbor:) Just before she headed back to the north, she strolled over for a few photos in the fading afternoon light. I love shooting in our yard, if not just for the convenience, but also for the varied landscape and backgrounds that we instantly have available to us. Bokeh goes a long way. Thanks so Madeleine for letting us try a bunch of stuff with you and for being so sweet!

a portrait of my son | once a week in 2014

Owen - we got to take a trip to Ohio and Michigan this week to visit our sweet friends and new babies. You and H played so sweetly together and we couldn't have had a nicer time relaxing and watching you two become friends. Rachel and I were college roommates just a few short years ago, so we had to get a photo of our new and ever expanding lives. I can't wait to watch all of you grow up as we connect throughout the years.

Emma : Annapolis Portrait Session

There are those people that I just know are kindred spirits; the kind of people that you can sit and enjoy a coffee with and have easy conversation and "me too!" moments. Emma is one of those people for me. We went to the same high-school a few years apart and since then have been following each other's blogs. She is the awesome lady behind The Hippie Memoirs, a delightful blog where she shares her everyday happenings, photos, "10 Things I Love" lists, and so much more. The voice she shares on her blog is genuine and true to who she really is and I can't help but love seeing an authentic spirit behind such a cool blog. We got to spend the morning together in Annapolis and chat and sip and shoot. Make sure to check out The Hippie Memoirs to keep up with Emma's adventures (a big one is coming soon!).

Owen - We just got some film back so maybe I'm stretching the rules of this whole thing, but whatever. I love this picture too much. You are so up for any adventure and when you get going you are so into it. We went for ride on Grandpa Joe's Boston Whaler on the most perfect summer night. you drove with Dad and I took pictures of the river. It's a perfect memory.

a portrait of my son | once a week in 2014

Owen - Somehow I managed to snag a photo of you looking right at me. So often I'll try to get your eyes and you are not interested in standing still. Other times though, you'll give me a silly grin and say "cheeeeeeese." I like when I catch you as you: a bit tired, but ready for the next adventure.

Dooby's Coffee - Mt. Vernon Morning

A few weeks ago, I got to join the bakers at Dooby's Coffee to document their morning routine. Katie, the pastry chef, lead me through their process starting bright and early at 5 AM in the gorgeous Mt. Vernon neighborhood of Baltimore. I tagged along for the dozen or so recipes the three bakers were working on and have to admit, my mouth was watering near the end there. They treated me to an amazing blueberry muffin with passionfruit glaze during our bread rising downtime and the Counter Culture Coffee Dooby's serves couldn't have made for a more perfect breakfast. 

The morning breezed by with flour and duck fat and walnuts and lavender all making their appearance. The recipe we were following was for a Walnut Sourdough in preparation for a MakeTribe event coming up in the fall (keep your eyes peeled!). After the dough was mixed, it was placed in floured baskets to give it that awesome circular pattern you see towards the end. Thrown into individual Dutch ovens, the loaves spent a good while getting all brown and crispy in the oven, as Katie worked on a few other loaves for that mornings cafe supply. Dooby's offers a bread club where patrons receive a different loaf of amazing bread every week. Oh to live closer. The menu here at Dooby's is just mouth watering, from a caramelized onion and gruyere scone to a Ginger Chicken and Avocado on Ciabatta Sandwich (which I got to leave with:). Following Katie, Kathy and Jean really inspired me to bake more at home, even if my results may not be quite as perfect as theirs. Just the act of kneading dough and having to wait for the rise and the amazing smell of the crust as it bakes is enough to make me stock up on ingredients at the grocery store. But to get that heavenly loaf made by Katie, get yourself to Dooby's soon. 

Dooby's Coffee - Mt. Vernon, 802 N. Charles St., Baltimore, MD

Make sure to check out Make Tribe and their awesome skill suppers and craft workshops! (psst. there is a free one coming up at Madewell and its gonna be good).

Thanks so much to Katie, Kathy and Jean for letting me join in on their morning. 
Enjoy!
