I think she was a toddler when I first met her.  I LOVE that this family has been part of my life as long as they have.  They are truly some of the best, most loving, most fun, down to earth people you could ever meet.  I feel very blessed to know them and very grateful they continue to choose me as their photographer.  It makes my heart very happy!  

Now Anna...  I've seen her in pigtails, sweatshirts, by campfires, tubing in speedboats, goofing around with her siblings, as a bridesmaid in her sister's wedding...  But on this day, I saw a different Anna.  She has blossomed.  She's more comfortable in her skin.  She's confident.  Basically, she's pretty amazing....  What's it called these days?  A Glow up? (Teenspeak for growing up and looking good.)  However you say it, she's a beautiful young woman and I'm confident she'll have a future as bright as her eyes.  

Have the best senior year, Anna!!  xoxo

Working in the wedding industry means the opportunity to work in a lot of different venues.  The Blackwell is high on my list of favorite places to work.  The staff is always amazing and they take great care of the couples that go through there.  I can only imagine they take as great care of their business clients and overnight guests as well.  That said, I was thrilled when they approached me about doing some photos for them.

Madison (from the Blackwell) and I pulled together a great team of fellow vendors.  We had All in Bloom Florist, Henri's Cloud 9 providing dresses and Event Source for linens.  I also have to say a HUGE thank you to Ryan, Mitch, Megan and Dominick for modeling for me.  It couldn't have all come together without any of you.   

Now...  Enough talking...  Photo time...

I am a home decor junkie.  In my dreams, I flip houses and am every bit as fabulous as Joanna Gaines.  In real life, I do okay but like most people suffer from a case of budget-itis.  Recently, I saw a wall map that made my little heart go pitter pat.  It's price tag, though, gave me cardiac arrest.  And as usually happens at my house, the conversation went like this:

Me: I LOVE this!! Wait! What?! It costs THAT much?! Nope. I'll just make one.

Andy: Uh oh

And then it begins...

For this particular project, it was worse because I pretty much already had all I needed...  I just had to buy a little paint.  

I started with some raw duck cloth and a little paint.  Devin gave me a hand with the painting.

Next up, state outlines.

Finally, we added a little wood trim and some sawtooth hangers. 

Voila!  A quickie little project for Devin's room---once we ever get around to painting it...  I promise, I'll share some pictures of it in the room.
