Cocktail Hour || Mexican Vanilla Moscow Mules

As you might expect, this holiday season in Austin is markedly different from the last 10 that we spent in LA. For starters, we are surrounded here by immediate and extended family and there is no shortage of invitations for Christmas cookie baking parties, trail of lights adventures or holiday celebrations.  Also, as I’m typing this it’s 47 degrees outside and I’ve worn a coat more times in the last week than I did in an entire LA winter.

Behind The Scenes of A Shoot Day

It’s so hard to believe that it’s been six months since we packed up our LA bungalow and headed to Texas. Most of you already know that we are living in Georgetown with my parents right now while we build our house in Austin. It’s a 40 minute drive from downtown Austin, but feels worlds different than when we were working from LA or even from our Austin studio that we shoot at a lot. Last week we shot some organization posts for January at my parent’s place in Georgetown and some cocktail posts for holiday and were …
