a bit of the weekend, with beautiful photos to accompany it…


over the weekend we got to spend time with tim, kesh and their darling baby roo (who, once you consider the time difference in australia where they live and all, was born just a few hours after samson).  let me tell you, it was one fun, food-filled weekend!  (with beautiful photographs to prove it because tim is made of pure talent.)

one of my favorite things about the blogging community are the long lasting friendships we have made online with so many. and what’s even better is when those online friendships are finally brought to life by meeting that friend in person: someone you have admired from afar, who has inspired and encouraged you, or taught you so much with their words and stories and photographs. someone half way around the world, even.  this blogging world is pretty rad sometimes.

anyway, that is what saturday felt like.  spending the day showing friends from the internet our favorite city in all the world and feeling like we were old friends the entire time. feeling like you can share your dreams or frustrations about life with them and they are listening. talking all things baby and children and not feeling judged. eating your third gluttonous meal of the day before 2 o’clock with friends who are happy to do the same! i guess what i am trying to say is, saturday was awesome.

tim is also one of my favorite photographers. and he was so kind to whip out his camera and document our family in the city together. this meant so much to us because we don’t have any photos of the four of us besides that time i forced my friend julie who was visiting from dc last december to take one of us while we were standing on the street (it’s the one you see on my sidebar. thank you, julie!)  these photos are also extra special to me because they capture us as a family of four here in new york city. this city feels like home- it’s where it all started… and who knows what will happen over the years to come, but it’s where we sometimes imagine we’ll be in the long run, too.

many more photos to come… because i love literally every photo tim took. and also, it’s my blog and stuff. ;)  thank you, tim! we love you guys.21816113 141512

  70. Jenny

    The photos are amazing. They really capture a true joy in your family!

  71. Belinda

    Your pictures and lifestyle is so inspiring, especially when you have a bub yourself (me) . Great shots!

  72. Carolyn

    Such beautiful and precious photos. I’m surprised I have never discovered Tim’s work before, being an Australian photographer myself. I’m definitely adding him to my reading list.
    Thank you for sharing!

  73. Lisa

    They are beautiful images. I had the privilege of doing his photography workshop in September last year and it was an odd (but fabulous) feeling finally meeting someone in the “real” world after reading so much about their life and journey through this wonderful blogosphere we reside in.

  74. Julie

    Oh! These photos are beautiful!

  75. These photos are absolutely gorgeous, but mostly because they showcase all of the love in your family! I can’t wait to see more.

  76. Marissa

    Gorgeous photos. Beautiful family. Lovely friends :)

  77. Tiffany

    I love all of the photos! I know what you mean about not having any photos as a whole family. And unfortunately my husband isn’t photographically inclined either so it is mostly always me taking the photos and not very many with my little ones! You have such a beautiful little family!

  78. jodi

    I’m so glad you guys got to meet in person. The Coulsons are a special bunch – three of the kindest souls you’ll ever meet. And as for Tim’s photography…well, it’s one-of-a-kind. He captured you all beautifully – all your sweetness and colour and love. x

  79. Raquel

    Beautiful!!! I hope one day I get to meet you guys!!!

  80. Rachel

    These photos are beyond gorgeous!! They are so perfect – I love how they capture the essence of what you guys are doing – just spending time together as a family. Photos like that are my favorite – they’re the ones that aren’t posed and they capture the best of moments. Love love love it. Tim is amazing.

  81. nicole zacharias

    OMG- how gorgeous is your little family!?!!!!

  82. N

    As a photographer one of the most wonderful things to do when photographing a family is chase them around their house, city, favorite place and watch them interact with another. These are beautiful images so full of life. Thanks for sharing!

  83. Yishy
