Traci & Kevin Sneak Peek!

Here are some of my favorite shots from Traci and Kevin's wedding! Thank you for letting me be a part of your special day! Enjoy :)

Hope you two love birds are enjoying the married life!


Before & After: Brass Lamp



Jonathan and I acquired this lamp from his grandfather. It has to be at least 40 years old if not older... I decided to spray paint the lamp itself with a white glossy valspar paint. The shade didn't quite turn out like I had imagined but I like it. I used blue dye (several coats) and because of the material it actually came out tie-dyeish....suits me just fine! I may add some green though so it fits more with our home decor. Either way I think it turned out great!


Movie Feature Monday

The Last Waltz. Enough said.

If you love Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Eric Clapton, Dr. John, and of course The Band, plus several others, you HAVE to see this rock music documentary directed and produced by Martin Scorsese. AWESOME! Up until Jonathan and I misplaced our copy about a year ago we literally would watch it ev-er-y day. We love it. My favorite songs/performances are this, this, this and this.


Engagement Session: Monica & Rush

Last fall I had the pleasure of shooting engagement photos for Monica & Rush. I met this happy couple through my husband shortly after we started dating. He lived with them (and about 50 other people) in the white house on the hill. Oh the crazy days of endless parties, tie-dye extravaganzas, and dogs, lots of dogs! Monica & Rush are high school sweethearts and they melt my heart. I don't think any other couple (besides me and my husband of course ;)) are more meant for each other than these two. I feel so fortunate to have gotten to know them and look forward to many more memories! Tomorrow Monica & Rush will tie the knot at the Capital Club of Jackson, MS. I'm so excited to be their wedding photographer! & Jonathan will be playing the guitar and singing in the ceremony :) Lots of luck and happiness to two of the most deserving people I know. Congratulations kids!


I'm Lovin' It!

*bunting galore by Natalie Pascoe

Not exactly sure what my obsession is with garlands and banners lately?? But I LOVE them! All of 'em! I want to have a party just so I can make one. Here are some of my favorites right now.

1. Clover & White Lace Garland by KristinaMarie 2. Vintage Carnival Fabric Flower Garland by PrettySwell 3. Vintage Scalloped Garland by sweetjessie 4. Paper & Burlap Banner Flag Bunting by lunaclaydesign 5. Shakespearean Paper Garland of Hearts by bookity 6. and the mother of all garlands... Multi-color Tassel Garland by Confetti System

This is the banner I made for Jonathan's birthday last year. The letters were made from newspaper and construction paper and accented with white paint, black ink, and mod podge. The paper snowflakes give it a nice touch. I plan to use it every year :)

I wish I could be in London on July 17th....how fun would it be to participate in this??


Movie Feature Monday

I'm going to start something new. Being the movie fanatic that I am, every Monday from now on (or until I slack or decide otherwise) I will feature a movie, old or new, may or may not have seen to all my readers, or the 6 people that follow my blog. I appreciate you none the less! Now on to the post...As much as everyone is talking about a certain blood sucking, werewolf howling, love lusting movie (don't worry I'm as big a Twilight fan as you), right now I'm going to talk about the OTHER Rob Pattinson movie, Remember Me. From the very beginning this movie has you captured, wondering how all the components fit together? & let me tell you, you won't see it coming. A great story of a guy from a high-class, NYC family just trying to lead a normal life after the loss of someone close. The story focuses on his relationships with those now closer and it all falls back on living in the moment. We should all tell our loved ones how we feel about them every chance we get, for it could be the last. I definitely recommend this, and not just because he's in it.


Let Freedom Ring!

I wanted to wish everyone a wonderful weekend and happy 4th of July! Stay safe and have fun!!
