Hoboken Coffee Roasters + Guthrie Trekking : an adventure story // guthrie, ok portrait and lifestyle photographer

These are the bits and pieces of rugged lovely adventure that surrounded the pictures I made of Kristen + her boy. The day started with us having a relaxing getting-to-know-each-other-in-person-chat while simultaneously soaking in the eclectic beauty of Hoboken, the way legit coffee shop I've been dying to visit after seeing so many images of its straight up coolness. :) Best part: It was just as neat (or more so) as I had managed to imagine from what I saw online. I love when places live up to their awesome reputation. 
So because I'm one of those "think outside of the box" kinda folks...what did I order at this coffee house? Italian Soda. Never had one. Always wanted one. Ordered one. Bam. 
{Two thumbs waaaay up by the way.}
Rachel, "my best one", got chai...cuz she's just cool like that. 
{Wanna see more of the sweet people behind Hoboken's pizzazz? Check it.}
Another highlight of the day...seeing The Morris Dream Castle in the making. :)

THE tree pillars....another Instagram phenomenon that I had to see in person to fully wrap my mind around. 
After lunch at the Castle we popped in and out of all of Guthrie's adorable little thrift and antique shops finding darling little gems like this and 'gramming like bosses. ;)

Later on that evening we had the pleasure of heading out to the Morris's home/farm and meeting the rest of the delightful family Kristen has become a part of. :) {Note to the readers: That's Mercy, the youngest Morris...the whole family I did not photograph...I focused mainly on the goats...she did not marry into a herd of goats I promise.} 



As the sun set we found this magical place to take pictures of each other. {Like the photog nerds that we are.}








I'm sure glad these girls love me. Cause I love theeeeeem back. :) :)



Here's a thank you and shout-out to Mrs. Cindy Morris for hosting us in her home and making some delicious chili to end our long day of trekking. :) And thank you a million times over sweet Kristen....for meeting us, hanging with us, laughing with us, making memories with us, taking pictures of us, and making the day completely splendiferous. :)
