Today only we’re having a sale on Organic Bloom Frames.  Purchase a 5×5 or larger Johnny (circular) frame and receive a FREE 5×5 Johnny – in your choice of color!  These frames don’t go on sale often, so take advantage of it now!

Here’s what the Johnny frame looks like:

It comes in a FABULOUS selection of colors – I just ordered FOUR for my own walls!  🙂

I recently got in a huge shipment of frames for my clients and snapped a few pics of their beauty:

They are completely fabulous and so very popular – they’re hot sellers.  And justifiably so – they’re well made, durable, and come in every color imaginable.  My walls are quickly being overtaken by these frames, and I LOVE IT.  Everyone who sees them in person ends up ordering some… they’re THAT fabulous!

Here are two I just hung in my bedroom of my own kiddos – the Lucy and the Gilligan in the color Parchment:

Here’s a peek at some of their wedding photos!  Congrats to Jenni and Matt!

Baby Greta

Thursday, May 19th, 2011

“Making the decision to have a child – it’s momentous.  It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking outside your body.”  — Elizabeth Stone

Baby Greta is such a sweet baby.  She is so peaceful and easygoing – I barely heard a cry out of her the entire session.  It’s always amazing to me to see brand new parents – carefully changing diapers, documenting feeding times, holding the baby so gently and sweetly, and doting on every noise and movement.  I’m totally in awe of it and I remember it with my son like it was yesterday.  What a beautiful, wonderful time in these parent’s lives.  They are enjoying every second of it, just like they should be.  Jess and Andy – thank you for allowing me to capture this precious time in Greta’s life!

Family Beach Portraits!

Tuesday, May 17th, 2011

“The love of a family is life’s greatest blessing.”  – Author unknown

Wow, what a treat this session was for me!  The “L” family and I had been in touch for quite a few months planning their family portrait session.  Ultimately, they decided on a session at the beach. and I’m so happy they did!  This session was so much fun – there was lots of running around, laughing, splashing, and enjoying the beautiful weather and location.  I went home soaking wet… and loved it.  🙂

Here’s just a few of the many great photos of this beautiful family!
