Life Lately

2016 no. 30


It’s been an eventful week. Two photo shoots for The Everygirl, two family portrait sessions, new puppy, and next week, I’m moving to a new place in Chicago and then traveling to California to for two weddings. At least it’s Friday, right?

After taking a long break from Game of Thrones (pretty sure it made me stop sleeping), I’ve scaled back to maybe 1 episode a week. I picked up where I left off on the last season of Shameless, and started Younger, too. In definite need of some fun and breezy TV after all that torture and war on GoT.

Back to wearing my favorite fall scent which happens to be on major sale here.

I’m the worst in heels and finally splurged on these since it is my theory that with a thicker heel, I’ll be able to last longer than an hour without feeling like I’m going to die. Someone please give me some sort of life-altering tip that will help me get myself together with this one. I’m in my 30s.

Last weekend, I photographed one of my favorite families last weekend–one I’ve photographed every single year that I’ve been in Chicago.

We had our first holiday shoot for The Everygirl. Feels way too early but that’s how it goes.
Getting ready to pack up my home and clothes in redi-boxes and my new medium Away suitcase because next week we’re moving and heading to California for a week long road trip! screen-shot-2016-10-06-at-3-17-32-pm
These guys.
Been running around town in my new stan smiths and velvet vince sneakers and am now set with comfortable walking shoes for my upcoming trips to California, NYC, and Denmark.

This sweater coat

Hoping for a little downtime between getting some posts ready for while I’m away–something I never do but am determined to make happen this time around. Add in some packing, photo editing, and my Saturday afternoon shoot. What’s something you’re looking forward to this weekend? Happy Friday!

  • Hi Danielle! I’m also moving this weekend, so packing this week, and would love to hear if you have any tips on the actual packing process. I have boxes like the redi-boxes that you use, but do you have any thoughts on which rooms to pack first? How to pack most efficiently? Thanks!

    1. I don’t think it matters what you pack first–but what you pack does matter. Only bring the things you really want and need. As far as efficient packing, not sure I’m much of an expert on that. Ha.
