Are you an early bird or a night owl? I am definately a night owl at heart with a very unfortunate early bird schedule. I get up six days a week before the neighbor's rooster because of how crazy early two of my kids go to school and on Saturdays to get my oldest to baseball. Most days, I stay up way too late working and then my brain doesn't shut off, keeping me alert even later. Anyone else get their best ideas at 1am? I can't stand the smell of coffee (gasp!) but am trying to find a caffeinated tea I like for my mornings. Please tell me your favorites!

Today was so special! I hosted my first (and hopefully annual) Galentine's Day event! I invited some of my favorite wedding industry ladies for a fun afternoon of camaraderie while we all partnered together on a styled shoot, a fun little lunch, and gorgeous headshots. [I can't wait to share photos but in the meantime, see this lovely sweetheart table we have available in our inventory.] Thank you to all the ladies who attended and participated in today's event. I look forward to all of our 2019 wedding collaborations!
Have you ever heard that you should do one thing every day that scares you? It's a way to push yourself to trying new things, get you out of your comfort zone, and make you reach new heights. Well yesterday, I did THREE things that scared me! 💍
ONE: I was asked to be a featured vendor on a wedding vendor's blog where I had to answer questions off the cuff about myself and my business. I didn't have the list of questions beforehand so I was a nervous wreck and probably stumbled across every word. 📷
TWO: I got back behind the camera for the first time in a while. It was fun and I really enjoyed it, but I still get a little bit of stage fright before shooting. I need to do it more often. I'll be sharing the images soon! 🤝
THREE: I reached out to three wedding professionals whom I would love to work with, but never have had the opportunity. I was nervous they wouldn't know my business at all or never reply back, but I was wrong! They all replied with joy and excitement and I am thrilled to begin the journey towards creating magic with them soon! 💡
The message here is to try those things that you think you shouldn't, venture into unknown territory once in a while, and you never know what special things will be waiting for you. What's the worst that can happen? In my case, the new natural deodorant I switched to wouldn't work, but alas, it did and I had a great day despite my hesitation. [If you read to the end, thank you! Did you do anything that scared you today?] Sofa in Studio 2: "Betty" from @lostandfoundrentals
Hello! I have been a little MIA on social media lately. I've been out of town for a few days as well as diligently working on implementing some new ideas for the studio and the rental side of the business. I have new sets coming together for the studio, some special offers and programs for photographers AND even some special offers for wedding rentals! I am working on updating the website with tons of new inventory, but in the meantime, see the New Inventory tab in the highlights buttons of the Instagram page. [Send a DM with any questions.] I look forward to providing details for your special day!

Ok, so I don't do a lot of personal posts but this is a special day. This is my oldest son, Jack. He turns 15 today. This kid ended a six year long battle my husband and I had to have a baby. We suffered through six years of tests, procedures, fertility drugs and three miscarriages before discovering I had Factor V Leiden, which is a genetically inherited blood clotting disorder, which was causing the losses. Once discovered, I endured daily shots of blood thinner in my stomach for the whole pregnancy, weekly appointments with our high risk OB, pre-term labor, lengthy hospital stays, and a scary amnio before he was born three weeks early. It seems like yesterday I looked into his eyes for the first time and thanked him for being my son. Three times so far in his life, I have really struggled with certain milestones. The first time was when he went to kindergarten. The second was when he decided he was too old for character underwear (LOL). The third is today. Fifteen years seems like it just came and went in a blink. Soon he will be driving and shaving, going off to college, getting married. And all I can think about is how in the heck am I going to keep it together during the mother/son dance at his wedding? Anyone else really feel it on their kids' birthday? Advice needed!
