Mini-Books! {Totally cute...totally custom...totally love 'em!}

I was so excited to show these off at the Spring Fling event this past weekend...and just like I thought, everyone who saw them just fell in love with them as much as I have! 

These are the new accordian style mini-books that I have. You pick your favs from your session, and I'll custom design your choice of either the wallet or square format.

Mini-books come in sets of three, so they're perfect little gifts or brag books...and they're magnetic, too! So fun!

The Three Amigos {sisters}

Kiernan's little look of exhasperation here is pretty much how I felt the past three months not being able to
be behind my lens...I can't even begin to describe how awesome it feels to be back up and running - both literally and figuratively!

I have to admit that I was a nervous wreck all day yesterday...it felt like before my very first session all over again with the butterflies in the tummy! But it felt just like old times once these gorgeous gals got here...whew!

I've had the pleasure of working with this family a few times now, and they're always just so relaxed and fun to be around. I was thrilled that they'd be my first session ...

So thank you, girls, for making the butterflies go away! I had a great time working with you again!

Hope you enjoy your sneek peek...and your spring break!

Coffee Table Books

I've been plugging away at a lot of custom designed books & collages this week, which is always fun, since each one takes on it's own personality. I thought I'd share a few pages from a couple of the coffee table books I've finished...

This family I had the joy of doing several sessions with, and we became great friends...but of course we had to face the inevitable Army PCS - boo! But, that made working on this book all the more special since it brought back a lot of great moments full of laughter. This is the second book I've designed for them in the past 2 years, and since Mom is a graphic designer it's like designing for my "art-brained-twin"... fun!!

These next pages are from the wedding album of Stephanie & Damon. I love being able to work with couples to tell the story of their day...and Stephanie was such an organized bride! When we sat down to talk about the photo selections, she not only had the image numbers but also little descriptions...too cute!!

Guilty little pleasure {shoe series part I}

As my hubby & friends can tell you, I have a bit of a addiction to shoes...but I swear it comes naturally. The lack of closet space can be attributed to the {beautiful} influences of my Grandma & Mom ... I may not be great at hair & makeup, but boy can I accessorize!!
These totally Vegas-worthy shoes I got this weekend as a little "feeling better" gift to myself. My hubby's team has a formal coming up at the end of this month and I thought this time instead of getting a new dress, I'd rock some new heels...but that meant shoe shopping without my favorite partner-in-crime - my Mom. Thank goodness for the Blackberry!! A few photos and texts later, these puppies were comin' home with me...
This got me thinking about how all my shoes have such great memories attached to them; Nailing my first job interview, walking hand-in-hand with Mike throughout Europe, surviving deployments & welcoming my soldier home, buying my first house...no wonder I can't ever part ways with a single pair! {ironically, when Mike proposed I was barefoot...}
This pair's story will start with some long-distance mother-daughter bonding...next stop: Vegas!
