. Black Bottle - Seattle, WA A few weeks later and I'm FINALLY posting food from my trip to Seattle. After going to an escape room, where we absolutely KILLED IT, we decided to grab food and a few drinks at Black Bottle. My gang loved this place because it's all shared plates, which is what we're all about. My favorite dish was their pork belly & kimchi skewers (last image). I could have honestly eaten infinity plates of it and still want more. I also really appreciate the great window light this place has because at the end of the day that's what it's all about.
Family isn't defined only by last names or by blood; it's defined by commitment and by love. Anyone can be a father, but it takes a special person to be a dad. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What do you have planned for Fathers Day weekend? 😊
ONE MONTH ✨ Our littlest lady is one month old today. I can’t believe it’s been a whole month since our family became complete & our lives & hearts became fuller. This month has definitely had its fair share of challenges & tears but filled with endless love. Olivia Lee, you have already grown so much since we brought you home. You are 8lbs 8oz & eat every 3 hours. You typically only wake up once at night but usually decide to stay awake for about an hour or so after you’re done eating. You love being swaddled & you have a love/hate relationship with your pacifier. You love being cuddled & rocked to sleep - but you aren’t a huge fan of your swings. Your big sister, Sadie, is obsessed with you & we are still teaching her to be gentile. But she loves you so much & so do we. You are the final piece to our family puzzle & we love you so! Happy ONE month sweet girl!
// my queenstown trip won’t be complete without visiting @fergburger_queenstown. and i did it not once, but twice! i got really lucky because for both times, i never lined up in a queue. thank you @efondo.kk for the recommendation.
— today’s wedding is my last until September and while I’m going to miss shooting over the summer, I’m ready for Japan, lazy days with my girl, and all of the home reno projects I have planned 🙌🏻 hellooo, summer! 🥳
Consistency or spontaneity? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I typically find that I'm most creative in the early afternoon. Right after I've stepped away from the computer and powered my brain with lunch. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And I'm definitely a fan of consistency. Routines make me feel in control and puts me at ease. I even eat the same thing for breakfast and lunch on most days. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And this photo -- drives me nuts. I'm the type of person that will straighten stacks of paper or business cards when I'm waiting at the Dr's office. What about you?
Chocolate or Crisps? (chips for my Canadian/American followers.😉) . . . #somersetphotographer#belovedstories#loveintentionally#radlovestories#couplesession#somersetweddingphotographer#citysession#canonphotography#takemoreadventures#traveling_uk#canon_photography#engagementsessions#happiness#goldenhourphotography#neature#alwaysoutside#wildandwonderful#playoutside#colourpop#inspiredbycolour#creativehappenings
Our most important piece of advice during a session: Have FUN! 🥳 Being engaged is an incredibly fun and short period of the entirety of your (future married) lives together. Focus on being yourself. Don’t try and be someone else’s Pinterest board. Dress up, but not so much that you feel uncomfortable. Hang out and interact with each other the way you normally do. Actually, we want you to focus on each other SO MUCH MORE than you may normally do! Fix your eyes on your love, and focus on all the reasons why you adore them, and try to forget the camera. Goof around, make silly faces, play and laugh! Be you!
Woke up at 4:30AM to visit this urban flower farm in Los Angeles and it was magical. Surrounded by warehouses and old streets, it’s not where you’d expect to find such stunning roses. And yet here they are, loved and cared for by the Rose Lane Farms owner, Lynne, who gave us the most thoughtful and educational tour! (And sent us home with a full on bouquet so @melee_bee can color match for a project we are collaborating on!). Can’t wait for future partnerships with this farm and these roses! There’s more ahead!!!
Summer 1 of 18 has been nothing short of magical so far, sweet baby. Each day, month, season & year with you is so special to me. — When you start to think about how long you’ll have your babies with you until they leave the nest, so to speak, 18 years isn’t that much time. I promise that each day, even the most difficult days, will be full of love. “I’ll love you forever. I’ll like you for always. As long as I live, my baby you’ll be.”
ᴇɴ⠀ ⠀ ▸⠀How do you think, what is the most annoying thing in our marriage with Steven? We went through time difference, distance, wedding in -27 (not recommended). But the worst was and is paperwork. Family reunion takes up to 6 month in Belgium. It means that as soon as my tourist days in Schengen zone is over, I need to leave for three months to renew the period. We tried to calculate living costs in Moscow and in the end it was expensive. The summer in Russian capital in the worst time for me (and the late winter days in march (and this year I caught it as well). I hardly stand when the temperature jumps over 25C, my skin is afraid of the sun light, I’m the best friend with heat stroke. We tried to play with other option, Maybe Kiev, maybe something else. In the end we stopped in from of the most ridiculous idea: SUMMER IN CANADA!!!⠀ ⠀ Well, our story taught us do not be surprised by anything. So, this summer I’m going to spend a bit in Ottawa (I’m sure, SeviceOntarion missed me a lot!) And than more than month by the ocean in St.John’s, where my host will be incredible Natasha and Alex, close Steven’s friends. They made a big trip to join us for the wedding day (what also made this day as a union of best friends all aver the world). ⠀ ⠀ I look forward to take the next adventure, even that it’s not desirable to be apart from my family. ⠀ ⠀ PS: Sarah , get ready for hugs! ⠀ ⠀ ʀᴜ⠀ ⠀ ▸⠀За время наших отношений мы пережили многое: разницу по времени, непонимание планов, возможностей, свадьбу в -27 (не советую вовсе!). Но самым противным и долгим процессом оказалось документоведение. Собирание справок о справках, апостилирование, путешествие в другие города, в посольства. Все
