Well hello!

I bet you thought I'd never post again ;).

But I told you I'd be back! 

So here is the status update on all things Orange Door Cottage.

MYSELF: I had a whirlwind of a wedding season, traveling all over the place and photographing weddings.  It was awesome.  And super stressful.  Also awesome.  Now I am back home, running around doing fall family sessions, working as a part-time nanny for the coolest 7 yr. old ever, and saving up pennies.

THE YARD:  It still looks exactly the same as it did when I showed it to you last time.  These things take time, you know.  And money.  Our amazing landscape architect is fleshing out the planting plan as we speak, and we are hoping to begin construction [slowly] in Spring 2012.  We are starting with a fence and the back deck for sure.  We need us some freaking privacy, and a place to lounge.

THE INSIDE: I've done several little things since you saw the inside last, even if the bathroom looks exactly the same.  I've organized cupboards, put up new curtains in the living-room and hung up more art and photographs, etc.  There are several projects on the roster for the drizzly months when I'm done with photographing families and have several months before my next wedding season starts.  One of them includes some old classroom chalkboards and a very unique collection of black&white photographs.  I'm excited to show you :).

More soon!


  1. I'm SO excited you're back! I've been a fan for a while and would check in occasionally, hoping to find a new post. So I was super excited to see you're posting again! Can't wait to see the yard transformation and all the other projects you have planned!
