It’s one of the things I love most in life. Breathing new life into something old, beat up or broken. Or just plain ugly! When I bought my house I didn’t have a ton of extra cash lying around so I spray painted a heck of a lot of furniature. Tony and I have a […]

Who doesn’t love a good makeover?

March 7, 2014


Every day, as the afternoon sun shines through my front windows, the light falls upon these little beauties. They were a score from the 99 cent store the other day. Treaures like these are just one more reason I love that store! It’s amazing how much joy I’ve gotten from that $1.

Why I love the 99 cent Store

I love that my job is a creative one. I can’t believe that I get to make a living taking photos. That’s pretty amazing. But sometimes I get tapped out. I’m pouring out my creative “juices” for other people all the time, and if I’m not careful, I can reach the point where there’s nothing […]

Taking a Personal Day

March 3, 2014


Seems like everyone is writing little blurbs about this last year and posting them all over the web. Reviewing the past 365 days and remembering most memorable happenings therin. A part of me (the rebel side of me that wants to do the opposite of what everyone else is doing) rolls my eyes. After all, […]

… this happened! I was shocked! I was the best Christmas gift I’ve ever received. Even better than the year of the Cabbage Patch doll! Thank you for asking, sweetie! Life with you gets sweeter every day. I said yes that day, I say yes today and every day for the rest of our lives. […]

One year ago today…

Choosing vendors for my wedding was about as easy as it could possibly be.  I’ve worked with so many great people in the wedding industry, and Kim Sanders of Art with Nature is one of the best!  I met her at an industry gathering a few years ago…. in the bathroom of all places!  Come […]

The Best Florist Ever!

Yep…. here’s another post about our wedding!  But we’re getting close to the end.  I promise.   You know my thing for keys, so I got a bunch of old keys off of ebay for our escort cards. When we were picking our songs for the first dance and father/daughter and mother/son dances I felt […]

The Reception

One of the best parts of planning a wedding is the cake tasting.  I mean you get to go look a photos of pretty cakes, but more importantly, you get to eat cake.  Quite a bit of cake actually.  Or is that just me? Choosing a bakery to make our cakes was a no brainer. […]

I’m ashamed to admit that, but hey, I’m a photographer! I realized that I really did want a video, especially since photos can’t capture the words we would be saying to each other. At […]

And now for the main event! Our ceremony was really important to us.  It actually ended up being one of my favorite parts of the day.  Let me tell you about it! Oh, here’s our invitation that I designed.  We did online RSVP to save printing and postage.  For the most part it worked great. […]
