Francesca and Frank’s session in Florence, Italy was an absolute dream. We started our time along the Arno, away from the hustle and bustle of the historic center. The soft clouds made for a beautiful color palette that complimented Francesca’s Giambattista Valli gown. These two have some serious chemistry, and this session was the perfect […]

Travel

The Italy trip came at a point in my life where I was simply exhausted – there’s no other way to say it – exhausted physically, spiritually, emotionally and creatively.

Perched high above the Mediterranean Sea is the gorgeous, family-run Bed and Breakfast – Ercole di Amalfi. When my sister Sarah and I started planning our Italian adventure, the first thing I began researching was places to stay.

Travel

One of the greatest joys in travel comes from taking the time to explore places off the beaten path. While tours can be a wonderful way to learn more history, I’ve always been an independent traveler more willing to march to the beat of my own drum. While Atrani is only one town over from […]
