Hello blog! Meet our third child, Eleanor Juliette Carter Larsen. Elle was born on July 29th at 12:31pm weighing 7lbs 10oz and measuring 19.5 inches long. She’s just precious. It has taken me two months to post these photos (better late than never?) because we have been busy snuggling these sweet babies and transitioning to life as a family of five (as well as sneaking in a few shoots and a wedding in Vermont – which was amazing and so fun). Thankfully, the transition to life with three precious children has gone well (and has been sacred to me. Hence the 2 month gap of announcing her birth on the blog). Elle is a happy, peaceful baby, making the perfect addition to our busy and loving little family. I am still on maternity leave from weddings until the middle of October and am enjoying life at home with our family of five.
So, without further adieu, let me introduce you to our sweet and very loved, Elle:
Special thanks to our dear friend and Eleanor’s godfather, Andrew Shepherd, for taking our family photos.
Cassie and Thomas had a gorgeous, emotive and detailed 3-day May wedding celebration coordinated fabulously by the rightly named Fabulous Fete of Dallas, Texas. Every detail was meticulously planned and beautifully displayed throughout the three-day event. My favorite part about Cassie and Thomas’ wedding was that every guest was treated as family and there was more love to be shared with all a part of their special weekend. Here is just a glimpse into the beautiful moments captured on their wedding day.

Ashley & Xuan married May 31st on a beautiful sunny Pittsburgh day. The weather was perfect and the air was filled with excitement. A palpable sense of love, friendship and loyalty could be felt by all as wedding guests and attendants traveled from all over the world to be in Pittsburgh for their wedding weekend. Ashley & Xuan have been living in NYC for the past several years and have mixed a beautiful combination of cultures from Texas, Pennsylvania, China and all over the world from their travels into their lives and wedding weekend. Ashley’s work with Ralph Lauren and impeccable sense of style and Xuan’s keen business mind and appreciation for beauty all made the wedding weekend stylish, classy, understated and full of charm. It was a wedding weekend to remember!
