isn’t a “Finished” post by any means… it’s a “work in process” post! :) I’m just really excited about it! We inherited a mattress from Michael’s mom when we first moved into the house and it was wonderful because we had two usable guest rooms!! However, we knew that eventually we wanted to get some bedroom furniture and have some fun with this room… and when I say “we”…. I mean ME. Michael is so good to me. He lets me have fun and when you see what I put in this room, you’ll know that he had no say in the decor…. it’s super feminine…. and light and airy… and I love it!! :)
We are passing along our old furniture to the almost “newlyweds” in our family and we purchased two twin beds from Pottery Barn Teen. Michael’s aunt had an adorable twin bed set in her old house and I always LOVED it! So now we have twin beds in one of our guest bedrooms and in the future, we can add “trundles” so that this room can sleep 4! We try to think ahead when we’re making big purchases like this. The idea for this room is that one day our kids would share this space. Right now we just have a cute extra bedroom for when we have multiple guests.
Now when I say this isn’t finished… I have big ideas for this room! Wall ideas…. cute accent pillows coming soon… etc. etc. But I wanted to share this because 1. I’m excited about it and 2. If I wait for every room to be 100% perfect and complete before I share it, I would never share anything. Decorating a home is a process!! So this is a part of my process!!

This beautiful day way unlike any wedding I have ever photographed before. It’s hard to put into words how powerful and inspiring it was.
If you’ve been following my updates since I got the R6 two years ago, you know I LOVE it!! It has been a game changer for me! But there is ONE mistake that I’ve made that cannot be fixed afterwards!
There are things that EVERY photographer should have on their website! We will walk through some students’ websites to see how small changes can impact their perceived value, and for you to see if what they’re missing is something that you are too!
You know what I’m realizing? I’m realizing I am loving getting to see people I love and miss in this very busy season of our life.
We’re gearing up for wedding season and there are so many ways to market yourself DURING a wedding to keep new clients coming in! I have been a wedding photographer for 13 years, and I have never paid for ‘traditional’ advertising!
I am eating my words again! For years, I have used InDesign for everything… but Canva had a HUGE update last year which changed everything!!
