like the way Young House Love blogs about their home projects! They don’t just share a 100% completed room all at once, they show the progress! Well that’s the approach we’re taking with our new house! It’s not done but it’s definitely getting closer and closer each month! This past month, I worked on my office a little bit. Several weeks ago I asked all of your blog readers to give your opinion about which image I should blow up for my office wall and the response was GREAT!! I loved hearing everyone’s opinion! Well, I’m excited to show you which one I picked!!
I’m also excited to finally have some curtains in the office! Curtains CHANGE EVERYTHING! They really do! Want to transform a room? Paint it and buy some curtains that are the appropriate length for your ceiling height. Curtains “soften” a room instantly!!! I’m sad that we’re almost done with curtains in our house because I love them so much!! Anyway, here are some before and afters to show the progress of my office space!
Paint | Sherwin Williams, “Waterscape”, Curtains | Z-Gallerie, Desk | Pottery Barn, Chairs, Table & Lamps | HomegoodsSo this is before we moved in! Progress! See, paint changes EVERYTHING! Our friend Wendy encouraged us to paint the ceiling and I can’t imagine NOT painting it now! More progress….Ta-da!!!! I picked the shot from Brian and Kristen’s Californian wedding! The colors of the hills tie into the room so well and the car “pops” off the wall! I love it! And the curtains make it seem cozy!!
When I’m scrolling on Instagram or looking through images after a shoot, some images just stand out and capture my attention more than others!
I don’t know if I have ever photographed a more gracious bride in the most horrendous heat! Seriously, Kelsey is a literal angel on earth. She brought her entire family to Virginia from South Dakota for this portrait session and was so incredibly kind even in the midst of 100 degree heat and humidity!
Lenses are NOT cheap, so when you invest, you want to make sure you’re choosing the best option!
If you think about a wedding day and the part that makes you cringe is having to interact and direct the groomsmen, I get it.
This was one of the most beautiful ceremonies I have ever seen, but the timeline didn’t quite pan out like we had planned.. The rings got lost, hair & makeup went long, storms were rolling in and there were some stressful moments!
You’re not going to believe this but this session was probably our easiest DC engagement session to date! We had glow, no crowed, a beautiful setting and the most wonderful couple!
