“Morning is an important time of day, because how you spend your morning can often tell you what kind of day you are going to have.” -Lemony Snicket
There is something sort of magical about starting the day when it begins. I woke up at 6am before the sun, grabbed my pumpkin coffee (aka fuel), and headed to Mt. Washington for a dreamy lifestyle session with Kathryn in her cozy home. Her stretches and early morning yawns reminded me that we are so beautifully human.
If pumpkin coffee alone wasn’t going to wake me up, meeting a real life teddy bear sure did. Hank, her 4 month old rescue pup, didn’t seem to mind the camera one bit.
Kathryn is one of those humans who fully embodies my passion and mission…capturing authenticity. The old wood floors, the fresh morning light dancing through the windows, the record collection, the denim, the peace and quiet. This woman, and her home, allowed a sort of sacred and genuine experience to come alive.
You know that Donny and Marie song that goes, “I’m a little bit country, I’m a little bit rock ‘n roll”? Well, something about Kathryn and the sincerity of her space had that rustic-rocker vibe. This little Mount Washington home felt like a cabin getaway, complete with a hammock, fireplace, garden, and comfy (dreamy!) West Elm couch. The perfect combination of vintage and modern.
All I can say is that both Kathryn and her sweet home were a breath of fresh air, and starting my day there was truly significant.
