Vacation for a Simple Life | Life By The Sea

When we went to Disney World last year..that for us was truly a FANCY experience…and we’re not saying we’re cave people and we were shocked by all of the attractions, crowds and elaborate experiences, haha..but that was a big huge deal for us! And can I tell you? We stayed in the cheapest resort there…but…

Jessica + Gary | Coastal Blue Virginia Beach Wedding

It takes a certain kind of couple to put tears in the eyes of almost ALL of the family and friends surrounding them on their wedding day. A couple that inspires. A couple that shows the world what friendship meets romance looks like. One that start to adapt the SAME smiles and grins because they’re…

Christina + Wes | Outer Banks Anniversary Session

A couple of months back, I ran my FIRST couple’s session giveaway! I have to admit, I’m not much into giveaways and I was completely new to it– and it’s VERY nerve-wracking giving away a session for several reasons! One being that you essentially could end up with ANYone…and the way I run my business…

A New BABY! | Life

This is OUR JOY. In the video, you can see the tears, you can see the sleeping beauties, the breakdowns, the beach babes, and the yogurt covered faces. We love to share our story. The most simple moments are the most beautiful to us. We simply love just being in the presence of one another….

Moving To Software! | 17 Hats | Workflow Series

Never even thought I’d be saying this, haha! The BINDER lady with print outs and branded worksheets of workflows and paper and pen EVERYthing…she’s finally taking the LEAP! After years of being really reliant on my little lists, paper contracts, and printed out everything…a new system is finally going into place! This is a SHOCKER…

Undeniable Timing | Saltwater + Grace

A little refresher on this series: Saltwater and Grace … two beautiful and cleansing things. REFRESHERS, inspirations. I love bringing elements of living on the coast and right by the sand and sea to tie into other life aspects and this was naturally the most fitting! The last post in this series was over a month ago. It was inspired by…

It Costs NOTHING | Salt & Sunshine Series

I am the girl that used to walk into places like Target where they strategically keep the women’s/juniors clothes and accessories by the front door and it pulled me in. I started justifying and self-discussing why I need that new coverup. Or leggings. Or scarf. I just work so hard, I need it! I used to…

Branding Refresher! | Photography

This is a short and sweet post but I am REALLY excited to share it! Last Fall, I was thinking a little bit about my branding. I really LOVED it! Katie Durksi (KD Creative) did it and the bright pink and teal, so so me! They were SO fun and on point! Over the year…

All Washed Up Jewelry Giveaway | Small Businesses

When I moved here to the Outer Banks, I lost one of my favorite necklaces.

There is nothing more I love than supporting another small business…

Year One with the Seastars | New Mom Series
