an autumn theory…

these photos are so dear to my heart…. maybe it’s because it truly shows the beauty of my sweet home alabama. or maybe because this collaboration was crafted with some of my favorite people in the south. (have you met these ladies yet? they’re all so amazing and i am so honored to know them)…. whatever it is, these photographs make my heart feel so full. and i am so happy to share these with you.

i hope you are all having a wonderful christmas season. xoxo
