Legacy Redefined

  • It Started 30+ Years Ago

When I think of the word “Legacy”, for some reason I think of three things. 1. Grandkids, 2. Funerals and 3. Money. I’m not sure why those three things come to mind, but whenever the word “Legacy” is brought up, those three words linger in my brain. However, after this weekend, my mental response to the word “legacy” is shifting a bit. This weekend… actually the last TWO WEEKS… have been a whirlwind of travel, shoots, hosting, workshops and way too many hours spent on the road.

The Workshop Experience

  • Behind the Scenes | April 2015

This workshop was different. The layout was the same, the schedule was the same, the content was the same…. but it was still different. This was the LAST workshop in our home. It was bittersweet… and I always get a little teary during workshops when I explain our heart behind our business but I was EXTRA teary at this workshop because a lot is about to change for us. I know you’re all waiting to hear our plans and you know we’re going to share…. once we can! :)

Nick + Megan | Engaged

  • A Downtown Annapolis Engagement Session

We were walking around the adorable streets of Downtown Annapolis, talking about everything under the sun. From the Maryland flag to bridesmaids dresses, it was easy to see that Megan and I could talk about pretty much anything! I love that about Megan! As soon as she walked up, I gave her a hug and I felt like I had known her for years. Not only was this my first time meeting Megan and Nick, it was also my first time meeting their pup!!
