almost 3 months ago, margaux and i welcomed our little boy into the world. just typing that sentence blows my mind. it still doesn’t feel real. now, we couldn’t be happier to share a little peek into his brand new room, courtesy of our wonderful friend sharon, and her animal print shop nursery project. with the help of the ever-talented designer morgan satterfield, the nursery exceeded all of our expectations. you can see more photos and all the room sources over at sharon’s blog right here and see the sweet baby elephant print right here.

and big thanks to onefortythreethe minimalist and oeuf for supplying us with the goods. m+m

  1. What a beautiful nursery (and baby)! Congrats. And, if Margaux wouldn’t mind sharing, where did she get that lovely dress?

COMING SOON.portraitsweddings

between traveling, moving, shooting non-stop (oh, and a baby on the way!), we haven’t had much time to share new work as of late. but we wanted to at least post a handful of images from the past few months, with the intention of adding more very soon. thanks, as always, for visiting and having a look. m+m

  1. Oh. My. So much beautifulness. I feel as if you see the world through an extra-romantic pair of eyes. So lovely, I can’t wait to see more.

  1. Hi, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar
    one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam responses?

    If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any assistance is very much appreciated.

THE YEAR IN PICTURES. 2012.editorialpersonalportraits

  2. What a wonderful collection of photos! I think one of the things I like best about your work is the happiness it evokes. Even the landscape shots, without people smiling or looking at their loved ones, are just warm and cozy and happy. I know I can feel better by just looking at your photos. I look forward to seeing what you bring us in 2013 (and I WILL order some prints!).

  3. It’s been such a pleasure following your work this past year. I am such an admirer. Keep it up! And let’s hope 2013 will inspire you even more so than 2012. :)

  8. I ADORE your photographs! ADORE.

    I also love the dress the girl is wearing in a few of the photos, and in the last one as well. White dress on the beach. Do you know who makes it?
