Mariel Monthly | February 2021

March 3, 2021

February is the shortest month but this one was busy! We started celebrations with the Superbowl game, which normally we host a big gathering but this time just had 3 friends join us. We got hammered with a few snowstorms accumulating feet at a time! Snow makes it magical outside and I found myself enjoying it more because I was home and working from home and didn't have to go out in it! Kasey loves the snow and just buries her head in the drifts it's so damn cute!

I finally decided it was time for an eye exam. It has been a good 12 years and so I saw the Warby Parker ad and did the home try on - it was super easy and the masses spoke on Instagram. I narrowed it down and these are the two top for me!

Valentine's Day was delightfully relaxing! We went out to dinner in town El Pulpo on the 13th and enjoyed Mediterranean fare that was still on our diet! I bought myself flowers and it was a nice reminder that you can do whatever makes you feel good - saved Michael a few bucks too! On the 19th we enjoyed massages and it was very nice to get that after more than a year! Massages always make me wanting more but hopefully we can do another later this year.

Had a few sessions and that just made me super excited for this upcoming wedding season. Time at a new studio space afforded me an opportunity for a few headshots for this month. I am definitely going to book this place again!!

More About Mariel

This blog is a small representation of my most current sessions, my clients love stories and all the adventures I am privilaged to go on! Ways to my heart include coffee, feeding me before I am "hangry" and anything shabby chic/rustic. My vintage camera collection grows everday and I am usually smiling and quoting random movies. Most importantly Mariel O. Photo celebrates love in all forms regardless of race, religion, or sexual orientation & gender identity.
