There’s a Line

Happy Love Day, lovers! What’ve you all got planned for today? Tonight? With your significant other?  Gal pals (Galentine’s Day is a thing and it’s awesome)?  Yourself? I’ll let you in on a little secret of mine.  I used to pretend not to like Valentine’s Day.  I mean, to be fair, I’m not super over […]

holiday weekend vibes

Whew!  Well, I had certainly intended to post quite a bit more of the last three weeks than I have.  In a nutshell, my mom visited for a week mid-late June, and then four days later, Anthony’s family came for almost a week and stayed until the third, and things haven’t slowed down until this […]

I drafted contracts and collected money for my services.  By definition, a “professional” photographer is one who collects payment vs. an “amateur” […]

weekend wins..

Happy Monday, said no one ever!  I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend.  Some of us “winterier” than others, what with the winter storm that swept through the midwest Friday into Saturday. After receiving a couple concerned warnings from the weather channel about the incoming blizzard, the storm finally hit, leaving us with a nice, dangerous […]
