Stick around, we plan to remain in the industry for a “few more years”  It’s been one heckuva ride the past 14 years!  I’m looking forward to the new adventures & new faces we will meet this year.

Enjoy our Christmas recap of a fabulous year!

Luxurious Wedding Albums

You are planning a wedding.
You’ve hired your vendors.
The big day arrives.  It’s absolutely AMAZING ~ imperfectly perfect!!

A few weeks go by as your continue life blissfully married.
Flash backs of your wedding day are rehashed through stories and memories shared between family & friends.
You receive your Images on a flash drive from your professional photographer.
L.O.V.E. all over again!!!  Memories have come alive with the images on your computer screen.
You experience “things” that you didn’t notice on your wedding day.  (it pays to hire a professional)
Imperfectly Perfect.  Life is good.

Turn the computer off, and back to life.  Back to living in the present reality.
Work, sleep, work sleep Eat.  Not necessarily in that order ~ you catch my drift?
Days go by.  Your wedding photo’s are sitting in a dark file on your computer.
You may wish to check them out ~ if time allows in your busy schedule.
It may be a year before you realize it’s your anniversary and time to relive that very special day.
Turn on the computer “Ooooo” and “Aawwww” – Love all over again.  Your memories have come to life once again.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~WAIT A MINUTE~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I have a better Idea.  Don’t keep your memories stuck on a computer.
My lesson was learned 3 years ago the hard way.  when my computer crashed.
ALL — yes ALL my files wiped clean.  2TB of files Gone. Kaput. Missing.  No more memories.
Don’t let this happen to you —

It is my “job” to educate you on why prints and albums are so important.  Technology fails.
Did our parents have their wedding photo’s stuck on a flash drive or computer somewhere?
If that was the case- I’m sure our recent technology would no longer retrieve this information and their “memories” would be long gone by now.

I encourage my clients to get something tangible, a storybook that allows your memories to come to life each time you open the cover or look at that Wall art.
A keepsake album you can pull out and look at whenever your heart needs a reminder of the wonderful memories made on a day filled with love and excitement.

There are so many styles to choose from when creating a specialized storybook.
My favorite album is timeless.  Printed in a castle located in Italy! (nostalgic!!)
These albums are amazing in every way.  Sometime you’ve got to see for yourself to believe.
I can preach to the choir, and babble until my face turns blue ~ instead I’ll show you a few pictures of these heirloom wedding albums.
Please note** pictures do not do justice for the quality and craftsmanship held within the binding.

The Traveling Camera Sack

The Traveling Camera Sack.

The perfect way to protect your gear on the go!

This week I found myself with a few spare moments to do something for me ~What is that?!!
Unheard of in my hectic mom-life & Crazy kids schedule.
I certainly don’t know how to sit still for very long!  My creative brain is always running, so I dug out my sewing machine, found my fabric stashed away and set out to create.
I didn’t have a project in mind when once I had the machine & fabric set up, but I found myself piecing together a little something for my camera gear.
Feeling Crafty
This product I feel is something most of us “mom-tographers” can relate to.
I like to bring my camera with me, but I dislike carrying the bulky camera bag & all the unnecessary items that I don’t need.
I prefer to travel “light” without excess baggage.  I wrap my precious cargo into a kitchen towel and toss it into my oversized mom-bag.

Behold.  The camera sack was created.  It’s a custom fit wrap for your camera when you want to travel lightly and efficiently with a stow n’ go philosophy.
The inside of the sack is lined with fleece and a small pocket for a spare battery or Memory Card.
I’ve tested it out on a few of my camera set-ups and found it to fit my gear (small lenses, large lenses and lens hoods included, battery grip).
The outside has a velcro closure with an adjustable fit.

I would love to offer these up for grabs if anyone is interested in protecting their gear in style.
Colors on hand are limited (see images below).
I am also taking requests, if you are looking for a color scheme to coordinate with your camera bags.
These are not just for professional photographers, they are great for the everyday mom-tog who wants to throw & go while protecting their gear in style.
Camera Sacks are available for $25.00 including Shipping & Handling.
These bags are up for grabs on my etsy store, click here

The images listed below are the styles & colors on-hand & ready to ship.  I’d love to hear your thoughts!!
