right this second… merry merry + family photos

family photos by Wreckless for Alyson Brown, Unruly Things

last weekend, we bundled up and headed to mountains for a little family photo session with my friend Kristy from Wreckless.  I just adore her so much and her photography is the best!  having family photos like these is always super important to me, since I’m usually the one behind the camera and rarely in pictures.  and Kristy nailed it.  the perfect combo of candid and posed shots.

I’ll be taking a little blog break between now and the new year to relax, play in the snow and spend time with family.  merry christmas, happy holidays and cheers to 2014, friends!!!

Wolf "Win Butler" Brown, the rockstar from Arcade Fire / photo by Alyson Brown

this week was exhausting, friends!  from feeling a little under the weather to hustling around making last minute arrangements for Halloween, I just didn’t stop going.  I’m sorry I left this space pretty quite but I hope you had a wonderful week and Halloween.  this little cutie dressed up as the lead singer of his favorite band, Arcade Fire.  if you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen my video last week of Wolf dancing to Reflektor.  seriously, the kid is obsessed with the song.  sure, it was us listening to it that first got him excited about it but he’ll even tell you that his favorite song is Reflektor and that yes, he does want to hear it for the zillionth time in a row.  so what better to dress him up as for Halloween than front man, Win Butler, from their Here Comes The Night Time special.  I cut out a few Otomi creatures, stuck them to a white suit jacket and got him a little white bunny to dance with.  success!

have a lovely weekend!  we’ll be celebrating a birthday which means I’ll be making the EIGHTH annual carrot cake.  cheers, friends!
