24/52: Searching for Something

Posted on Jun 21, 2014 in Kiddo, Uncategorized | No Comments

If you look closely, you’ll spot a black and white furry dog in this photo. I caught these two in the backyard very interested in something. Anything that our dog Leia is interested in, so is our son. I think she may be his favorite. A portrait of my son, once a week, every week, […]

A Pattern for a Rainy Day

Posted on Jun 18, 2014 in Uncategorized | 3 Comments

This pattern post is brought to you by June gloom. I guess it’s not as much a pattern as it is a grouping of expressive brushstrokes demonstrating my general distaste for the continuing rain in our weather forecast. Or, something like that. Lately, I’ve really been in the mood to break out the paint brushes […]

22/52: plants are hilarious. We went to get a plant/gift at Wickman’s. My husband was holding our son as I went to the back to look at a plant, and I asked them to follow me. As they did, the plant leaves brushed up against my son’s face and he erupted in giggles. He couldn’t […]

I’ve found that creating moodboards for clients is incredibly helpful to make sure we’re on the same page, especially when it comes to wedding invitations. I recently created this one for a dear friend who is having a classic black and white wedding, but with a bit of vintage charm thrown in. I can’t wait […]
