Lizzy’s Latest 2017 Top 5 Fall Favorites

Fall has arrived!  I’m so excited for this time of year!  It is my favorite season.  Although, Summer’s embrace still lingers, hints of Fall are making their debut gradually.  I can feel it in the cooler mornings and nights.  I can see it at the stores as they display Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas (already!) paraphernalia.  And just last night as I drove home from work, I could smell the sweet scent of burning firewood in the air. This gradual changing of the seasons will soon gift us with the splendor of Fall foliage.  I love watching the leaves paint the landscape in brilliant hues.  It is something I look forward to every year.  (more…)

Lizzy’s Latest – Vince Camuto Lorrana Dress Sandals

One of the best things about living in the Washington DC area is the endless options for photo shoot locales.  We decided to drive into Washington, DC to check out the Botanic Garden situated on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol.  We found great parking just across the street from it and only had to walk a short distance.  I was looking forward to the shoot until we walked in:  humidity greeted us and the tight walkways were streaming with visitors.  I gave my dad a disapproving look, but he still wanted to take some “test” shots.  We spent about 15 minutes there before I was over it.  Diva behavior according to my dad!  😉 (more…)

Washington DC – The Capitol – The Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice Adventure

As much as I love kids, there was a time when I never wanted any of my own.  That mindset evolved to if I ever had kids, I only wanted boys.  Then, my brother, Michael, and his wife, Shannon, had my niece, Kristin and that sentiment went out the window.  (more…)

Lizzy’s Latest – Nine West Everafter Fringed Two-Piece Pumps

The Nine West Everafter pumps are so chic!  The first thing that caught my eye was the fringe detail at the ankle.  Yes, two years later, my love affair with fringe continues.  😉  Fringe is definitely still trending in 2017 and when paired with approximately 4-inch stiletto heels, adds a sexy and playful vibe, in my opinion.  🙂   (more…)

Coltons Point – Andrew’s First Holy Communion

One of the joys I’ve experienced as a Godmother is helping my Godson, Andrew, strengthen his faith.  I enjoy taking him to Mass every chance I get and sharing my Catholic faith with him. (more…)

Lizzy’s Latest – Michael Kors Ciara Embellished Suede Slingback Pumps

There have been times over the last year when a lack of photo shoot planning led to a reliance on spontaneity.  This was one of those weekends.  Call it procrastination or laziness, perhaps a little of both, but I had no particular destination in mind other than it had to be local.  Dad suggested DC, but I was lukewarm to the idea.  The thought of taking pics in a crowd didn’t appeal to me and I was also thinking about my dad’s aversion to jam-packed places.  The last thing I wanted was an aggravated photographer.  😉  However, with no other option, DC became the default location.

Washington, DC – Judiciary Square – A First for Everything

Have you ever had the experience of being behind someone in line whose credit card was declined?  You patiently wait as the person insists there must be some mistake!  Ultimately, the person either buys less with cash or leaves empty handed.  Either outcome makes for a very awkward situation.    (more…)

Shoespiration: Vince Camuto Welton Moto Boots

Now that my shoe blog is monthly, the time in between posts sometimes feels like too long of an absence from all of you, at least to me.  As such, I’ve launched a new segment on my blog called, “Shoespiration.”  🙂  Its intent is to fill the fashion void that lingers between my main blog posts.  It’s a mini blog post; a sort of fashion fix if you will to get us through the month.  😉 (more…)

Lizzy’s Latest – Marc Fisher Truthe Suede Lace-Up Pumps

Lately, it seems every weekend I plan to take pictures, the weather turns cold.  The weekend of this photo shoot was no exception.  The temperature stayed in the 30s and the wind was gusty for the majority of the shoot.  However, with St. Patrick’s Day in March, I was determined to share this cute asymmetrical green skirt.  🙂 (more…)
