A while back, my basement flooded, and ruined most of the Christmas ornaments I had (which already wasn’t a lot). I decided that instead of buying new stuff, I’d come up with a different idea every year that used stuff around the house and the yard to decorate my tree. Last year, I used pink what-nots from the old branding for my biz. This year…paper airplanes! We tried decorating the tree by throwing the planes at it. Fun, right? Well, the tree had some sort of force field around it and the planes violently ricocheted back at us. I used a less interesting method, and got ‘em on there. Here are some pics, along with my “ode to not real snow” mantle. Happy DIY holidays, y’all!

These photos make me cry. My fun and sweet friends came to the studio to celebrate their beloved furry pal Loki, who got an unfortunate diagnosis from the vet. Aw man, I can’t even write this without cryin’! Loki got lots of hugs, smiles, and treats. What an awesome buddy. All the love for Loki!

Hey, y’all! I hope you had a super-swell Thanksgiving! Lots of folks are now in epic shopping mode, and also want to support small, local businesses (*raises hand high, yelling “ooh, ooh!”). If you’d like to give someone a unique, fun, and memorable present this year, might I suggest a gift certificate for a photo shoot? Heckyeah! I offer options as low as just $75, and these shoots are great for families, couples, expectant mommies, kiddos, and even for pets and boudoir pics (but hopefully not for boudoir pics of your pets). : ) I’ll even gift wrap the certificate for you. What? True story. Yay, holidays!!!

I adore these folks, and feel lucky to know them. They are two of the most kind, funny, and generous people you will meet. I’m thrilled that they wanted to pop into my studio to celebrate something that’s a really big deal…their 35th wedding anniversary. YAY! Here’s to Carol and Tom’s awesome, lasting love!

One of my favorite things I get to do is meet the adorable little ones who arrive after I’ve taken maternity photos. These parents are a special kind of cool, and their young lady is already pushing that coolness factor to new heights. I mean, I couldn’t get her to NOT smile. Amazing.

I know that I get excited about all the shoots I post, but when the person in the photos is a dear friend of mine, and she’s expecting her first baby…I mean, come on!! This woman is amazing. She’s an unstoppable human being, a force to be reckoned with, a skilled personal trainer, and a lovely lady. She’s also a co-founder of Oh Baby! Fitness, a super-cool company that provides info and support to expectant mommas about health, fitness, and everything. Yes! I know that she makes pregnancy look pretty glamorous in these pics, but please be advised. Kathleen is a professional jumper. If you’re currently growing a baby in ya, you can try the yoga, but leave the jumping to the pros.

The only thing cooler than having an awesome friend of mine come over for photos with her adorable son, is when her sweet sister and cutie-pie niece are also in town, and come along! When there’s this much fun, family energy in my studio, it’s kinda the best thing ever. Happiness overload!

I had the pleasure of taking some headshots for Ali a few years back. I was thrilled that she was going to be back in town, and wanted some cool, editorial portraits to use for all of her creative endeavors. She is a singer, songwriter, actress, performer extraordinaire! She’s also ridiculously easy to photograph. I mean…serious beauty reality. We knew that the movie prop warehouse would be the perfect location for the type of pics she wanted. Yes! We had an awesome day of shooting playtime, and she is simply a downright joy. Thank you, Ali!!

Dear Blog, I’m terribly sorry that I have neglected you so horribly for the past few weeks. If you can find it in your heart to forgive me, I shall fill you with tons of photos and what-nots. Very nearly sincerely, Stacey. Now that I’ve gotten the apology out of the way, here’s a new Mug Tot photo with with an awesome firecracker named Jude. Give peace a chance, Jude!
