Creative Journey | Hue and Texture

Thursday, December 30th, 2010

Now that the rush of Christmas and my busy season has passed, I have an opportunity for some down time. Time to spend with my family, time to relax, and time to get my creative juices flowing again. I was delighted when I came across an opportunity to become inspired and look at things through my camera in a whole new way. An opportunity to really be creative and continue to grow in my photography.

Here’s how it works: each week a new hue and texture will be selected. It’s our project to go out and capture these things. Everyone is welcome to join in on the project, it’s been fun so far! I’m joining in a little late, so I’ll be playing catch-up for a few weeks.


Week One
Hue: Brown.  Texture: Unlimited


To join in, visit Marta Locklear, and be sure to let me know you’ve joined so I can follow your journey.

Monday, December 20th, 2010

Organic Bloom frames are the “IT” frames right now – they’re beautiful, funky and fun!! They’re also only sold by photographers, so you won’t find these at the store… they’re one of a kind and custom made for each order. There are 10 amazing designs, TONS of color options, and any size you can imagine, from 2×2 and up. You will fall in love with these frames, just like I have. I want to fill every room in my house with these!!

Aren’t they gorgeous and fun? Below is a “Lucy” design in the color pewter. AMAZING!

And here’s the fun part: when you have a session with me anytime from January through April 2011, you’ll receive a FREE 5×7 Organic Bloom frame! You get to pick the style and color!

New Logo!

Sunday, December 19th, 2010

After asking just about everyone I know, spending TONS of time tweaking and obsessing, I decided I was making things WAY more difficult than they needed to be with this logo-designing! Let’s see… I switched fonts about a dozen times, I interchanged flowers and even a (super-cute, but just not perfect) bird, moved the pictures from the front to the back to the middle of my name… it got out of hand. So I stopped obsessing and just went with my favorite!

And really, I’m so happy with this new logo. I love the colors (though I’ll probably change them when I crave some variety) and I love the dandelion! I’ve done a little updating to my blog to incorporate the new logo, though it’s really a work in progress (I want to find a new template). And my next step will be updating my website!

Hope everyone likes it as much as I do!

The ‘H’ Kids

Sunday, December 19th, 2010

The “H” kiddos belong to a good friend of mine. I was delighted when she asked me to take pictures for their Christmas cards. We did a little mini-session in their yard… while my little munchkins ran around and made things difficult for me!! Lesson learned – the kids can’t come, even when it’s a quick session for a friend!! 🙂

Isn’t her dress adorable? I love it!

New Product – Disc Tins

Friday, December 10th, 2010

These adorable disc tins are a new product offering for 2011. When you have a full session and purchase a disc of your images, the disc will come in one of these tins. The tins not only look great, they keep your valuable disc safe. Each disc and tin is personalized with photos of your choice and custom wording to suit your family – you can choose to put your family’s name, the date, or special wording like Happy Birthday, Merry Christmas, etc.

I’m so excited about these – they’re fabulous! If you’d like to see them in person, please ask me at your session. I bring samples of products with me to each session.
