annie | autumnal elegance

well, long time no see on the blog here. it’s been just about two years since I’ve made a post (oops.. :D), I’m not quite sure how time slips by so fast but I’d like to try to get this rolling again and start posting more often. I have a very strong tendency to be a perfectionist in most everything that I do, it’s very all or nothing with me a lot of the time.. so I guess these past two years on this blog have been the “nothing” version of that haha.
but I’m feeling incredibly inspired and renewed as I’ve gone through a lot of positive shifts in my life since then, so I want to start sharing more with you all again. without further ado..
a few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful woman below named annie, she contacted me wanting to get some new creative headshots and photos for her acting career. I love working with fellow creatives, or people that just want to make art together. annie gives off such a classic victorian vibe in these photos, especially with her lovely porcelain skin. such a beauty <3autumnal victorian portrait of annie finnerty by savannah daras in portland maine

my first garden, my first post

welcome to my brand new blog! I am so excited to start this. I’ve had a desire to start blogging more, but haven’t really took the steps to see it through. I think I am finally ready, and I’m looking forward to it. this blog will just be a collection of everything in my life. so I hope you’ll stick around.

so this year I started my first “real” garden. my mom was a huge help in this process, as we both worked together for many hours in the hot sun getting everything ready. we don’t have a lot of gardening experience, and we really did not do *too* much research; we just kind of went with the trial and error method. I have already learned a lot of things along the way that I will carry with me for next year’s garden (like the fact that squirrels love to eat/steal the broccoli). so here’s a peek into our little garden.

there are a lot of wild plants surrounding the garden. I could weed them, but I am just sort of letting nature do its thang.
oh, and I absolutely adore my little watering pail. I found it at goodwill some time last year.
