Savannah: Alex Raskin Antiques

In gorgeous, historic Savannah, every square is surrounded by regal, magnificent homes, rich in architecture and the promise of great stories to tell.

Happening upon what looked like a run-down, deserted and "haunted" house on the corner of Monterery Square, with a sign that said "Antiques", my curiosity was instantly piqued. The door was locked, but there was a note on the door with a number to call for it to be opened. The note also stated that the home was large so it would take some time.

There was no response.

The next day however, the door was unlocked. As I pushed it open, it creaked just like a horror movie door.

But very much not like a horror movie, was the sight of an enormous front room filled to the brim with heavy pieces of antique furniture and sculptures. A perfect antique shop. With all the mystery of a haunted mansion gone, it was easier to walk in, and browse amongst the vintage furnishings.

The shop-keeper invited me to explore the other floors (3 more!), so I set off upstairs. At the top of which was a door with an instruction to "shut the door behind you"....

Join me within the walls of the historic Noble Hardee Mansion of Monterey Square...

Instagram and its endless possibilities are what make it so addictive. I love that feeling of discovering a new Instagram account.  Instantly clicking that "follow" button knowing that I'll have that person's imagery on my feed next time.

Here are a few Instagram accounts that I have fallen in love with. They're inspiring and always take me on a journey to another world.

The Lewis Family

Allow me to introduce you to the lovely, warm, fun-loving, cheerful and beautiful Lewis Family, who I had the honor of photographing in Cohasset this past weekend.

I met Suzanne, one third of the Just Us Gals, at this event and was excited to meet her mom, sister and boyfriend as well as the latest edition to the family: French bulldog puppy Pierre, who is just the cutest lil' guy!

Photographed at the end of summer while the grass was still green, the water still sparkling, and the shade of the trees telling stories that would make Autumn jealous....

Whale Watching, Cape Ann

“Consider the subtleness of the sea; how its most dreaded creatures glide under water, unapparent for the most part, and treacherously hidden beneath the loveliest tints of azure. Consider also the devilish brilliance and beauty of many of its most remorseless tribes, as the dainty embellished shape of many species of sharks. Consider, once more, the universal cannibalism of the sea; all whose creatures prey upon each other, carrying on eternal war since the world began. "
Herman Melville, Moby Dick

I've never been whale watching before, so when my sister got all of us tickets for my birthday in July, I was BEYOND thrilled about the prospect!

It's incredible that we're able to venture out, far out, into the Atlantic ocean, where deep, DEEP waters hide these wondrous creatures and if you're lucky you get to hang with the whales for a bit. How awesome is that? I can't even...


Smooth, gentle, ENORMOUS. I felt very small. We all did.

Come with me to Gloucester, Massachusetts where we set off from Cape Ann one early morning...
