Book NOW!

Ready for your family photo sessions yet? I sure hope so because this year I'm offering a discount for anyone who books their session from now until October 22nd. After that date, rates will go back to my normal rate of $75.00 for a Mini Session. Also, all returning customer get an automatic 20% off just because I really appreciate you coming back a second or third time! 

Lately I've been doing a lot more designing for invitations so I decided to create a new page for potential clients to see a few samples. I wish I had more to share but not until recently did I start saving my work or at least taking pictures of it. If your interested in taking a look, you'll see the tab right below my main picture called "Design & Events"

Beach Loving

Back in June I shared (here) that while in California we had pictures taken on the beach. This was something I had been wanting to do for years and finally got the chance to since I found a photographer with an affordable price!

I look forward to more pictures on the beach 
with my handsome in the future :)

Too Soon?

This year I have already marked my calendar with the dates that I'll be putting up my holiday decor & switching to the next. I decided to put fall up early! It just feels like the seasons come and go quick so even though fall doesn't officially start until 9/22 according to hobby lobby, it's been fall for a many weeks. lol. 

The year I got engaged was around the same time that  Mervyn's decided to close their stores so I bought most of my fall decor at that time for 85% off, it was a steal!!!

I bought these removable stickers at the Dollar Tree Store

 I bought these at the Dollar Tree store too.

More Fall Decor to come!

Birthday Card Keepsake

I found a neat idea on Pinterest and finally made time to do it. It's really simple, the only hard part was making sure the hold punches landed in the same area for each card so that they would line up correctly when I tied them together. 

Supplies I used
1 Green 12x12 Card-stock paper
1 Orange scrap paper
1 Stamp ($1 at Micheal's)
String (Left over from party)

Sedona, Wedding and birthday!

Last weekend my family and I took mini-vacation up north. We rented a house and just enjoyed the company, ate lots of good cooking, played games and just had a relaxing time together.

We planned this trip to get out of town AND to celebrate my Brother's twenty third birthday! Woo hoo Chris, you OLD!!! LOL! Okay just kidding, your not. Thanks for being the best little brother and always making any dull moment fun...thanks for all of our inside jokes, they make fun moments FUNNER (yes I know that's not a word, but it works!) I've always appreciated you and I know I lecture you often, but I promise I'm only trying to help you see things my way....LOL...okay just kidding, I'm only trying to help you k!

I also helped as Chelsie's wedding planner and coordinator. I really enjoy the whole planning process and most of all the fact that the last two brides I've helped have been SO easy to work with! I have not experience a Bride-zilla moment yet...counting my blessings!

Sis.Allison and her team always do a beautiful job!

 I designed the programs one night before the wedding, yikes!

 My sister took care of setting up the dessert table and making a few of the desserts.

Very blurry picture, sorry.
