Friday Favorites | February 6, 2015

Friday Favorites, February 6, 2015 | Faith and Composition

Today I’m excited to start a new series on the blog, something a bit more lighthearted that will give me an opportunity to share some of the things I’m loving right now. I’m dubbing it Friday Favorites, and today is the first installment. Every other week (or each Friday, if I’m ambitious), I’ll pop in to feature some of the lovely things that have caught my attention. They may include products I’m smitten with, books I’m reading, songs I’m loving, foods I’m craving, and more. So check back each week for recommendations that I think you’ll love as well.

Now for today’s first Friday Favorites: 

1) I love Lauren Daigle’s heart-moving song, “Let it Be.” I’ve had her station playing without interruption on Pandora for a week now. Go ahead and queue it up. It will bless your heart, promise!

2) I recently discovered Haute Hope via the Grit & Grace Instagram feed, and I was instantly smitten. Founded by Jess Puccinelli (who is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside!), Haute Hope curates a collection of breathtakingly beautiful gift boxes that give a portion of proceeds back to charities. I mean it when I say I haven’t seen a prettier collection of gift boxes anywhere. The contents, the packaging, the attention to detail are all impeccable. If you’re seeking a gift for a birthday, Valentine’s day, bridal shower, anniversary, or any other special event, be sure to check out the stunning collection at Haute Hope. You can also follow all the loveliness on Instagram.

3) Our weather is still a bit cold, but warmer days are on the way, and nothing puts me in the mood for spring like tulips. I picked up several pots of tulips at my local Trader Joe’s last week for a mere $2.99! That’s less than a latte, and the joy they will bring will last so much longer. If you have a Trader Joe’s nearby, hop in and snag some!

4) This gorgeous print designed by Jenn Sprinkle features the theme verse for IF: Gathering 2015. At just $12, the gold-foil art piece is a lovely way to put scripture on your walls. And speaking of IF, are you going? I‘m so sad that I can’t attend the much-anticipated event this weekend (I mean … I’m really bummed). Some family circumstances have prevented that from happening. However, you can bet I’ll be following along on the Live Stream. You should too; With names like Jennie AllenLauren ChandlerJen HatmakerAnn Voskamp, and more, you know there’s going to be some anointed teaching! 

That’s all for this first installment of F&C’s Friday Favorites. Have a blessed weekend, friends!

Mini Fall Photo Sessions {A Glimpse at Some of the Shoots}

A family photo mini session | Faith and Composition

It’s the start of the Christmas season, and my head is swimming with ideas and posts to share here … a gift guide, some of my favorite seasonal DIYs, whole-food holiday treats, and more. I have a list that’s seemingly a mile long filled with good intentions for this little space.

And yet, the reality is that I have been up to my ears with photo editing. I am still so pleasantly surprised at the friends-turned-clients who have trusted me to archive their memories! Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to all of you who have taken a chance on me! Couple that with the demands of a busy household that includes three children five and under, and I’ve been non-stop busy. But it’s a good busy! And as the warm December sun shone down on me this morning (yes, it was warm today!), my heart was literally bursting with gratitude.

So all that to say … I’m hoping to work on a few of those aforementioned ideas for this little space during this week, but until then, here’s a glimpse at some of the photos I’ve been snapping. These were from a few of my recent mini sessions. Each family was such fun, and the weather cooperated beautifully! Also, if you’d like to follow along with some of my day-to-day snapshots, be sure to join me over on Instagram.  A family photo mini session | Faith and Composition http://instagram.com/faithandcompositionhttp://instagram.com/faithandcompositionhttp://instagram.com/faithandcompositionA family photo mini session | Faith and Composition A family photo mini session | Faith and Composition A family photo mini session | Faith and Composition A family photo mini session | Faith and Composition A family photo mini session | Faith and Composition A family photo mini session | Faith and Composition A family photo mini session | Faith and Composition A family photo mini session | Faith and Composition A family photo mini session | Faith and Composition A family photo mini session | Faith and Composition A family photo mini session | Faith and Composition A family photo mini session | Faith and Composition A family photo mini session | Faith and Composition A family photo mini session | Faith and Composition A family photo mini session | Faith and Composition A family photo mini session | Faith and Composition
