easter at terrain

Enchanted Easter table setting at Terrain

I just stumbled upon Terrain's Easter decor, most notably their unique chocolate offerings, and immediately felt a sense of nostalgia, when I would wake up and the Easter Bunny had left me a basket full of candy in brightly colored wrappers and plastic Easter grass. Oh, if only he had delivered these lovelies to my house...

I so desperately wish we had a Terrain here in Dallas, but in the meantime, I'll just peruse their stunning offerings online and imagine I'm there. And that I can afford it all.

Milk Chocolate Bunnies. And veggies kids will actually eat -
because they're chocolate.

Spring Pastel Chocolates with edible gold leaf

Vintage Paper Easter Grass

I've always wanted to learn how to do this, Cottontail Needle Felting Kit

Hare and Carrot Shopper, perfect for the farmer's market.

Ceramic Dyeing Eggs that'll last forever.

Bring Spring into your home with this Paper Flowers Garland Kit.

An assortment of goodies in their Candy Shop. I will no longer stand for
regular Marshmallow Peeps now that I've seen these confections.

little forest hills

All photos by Frances Moulin

I wanted to share a few photos from a recent photography narrative I did surrounding my quaint little neighborhood in the heart of Dallas. It's kind of a hidden gem located by White Rock Lake where our motto is "Keep Little Forest Hills Funky."

This particular narrative focuses on our street, but our entire neighborhood is filled with houses built in the 30s and 40s, an abundance of yard art, chickens, free libraries, wildlife and overall quirk. I think it's pretty incredible how much of a story can be told just by our immediate surroundings. 

Why, yes, that is a woodpecker, who stood
still just long enough for me to snap a photo.

sarah's family photos

All photos by Frances Moulin

Sarah's family photo session was like a big family reunion at Trinity Park in Fort Worth. Only they were reuniting for one special person - their Granny. Sadly, sweet Granny has been battling cancer, so for her 75th birthday, her grandchildren, great grandchildren and other loved ones gathered to take family photos to give to her as a very special birthday present. And I was lucky enough to capture it all. 

Granny loves to crochet and made each of her grandkids a blanket over the years, which they brought with them. They all have such big hearts - and they love to laugh together! Such an amazing family.
