Vania and Christine over at Simply Bloom Photography can do no wrong in my book. And when you see their photos, I'm sure you will be thinking the same thing. When I think about how I want my images to look, and what kind of photos I want to give my clients, V and C's work is #1 on my list. Their photos are simply stunning. They are classic and vintage but modern, and they breathe romance into every image they take. It would be an absolute dream come true to have them shoot Josh and me.Alas, they are in Alabama, and I don't think we will be there any time soon. Oh what I would give to have a session with them. Take a look at their truly inspiring and romantic images over on their blog HERE

Amazing and drool worthy, right?

Have a fabulous weekend!

So I've started and stopped a post about 4 times since I posted last. Something funky is going on with blogger. I no longer can choose text style, or color, which, yes is a big deal to me. Linking is weird too. Anyway, I've been MIA for a long time, and I'm sorry to the 3 people that read this blog. I've been working away on prepping for last weekends wedding, and working on ways to revamp my business in for 2010. I've also had a lack of things to post about because I've been left a little uninspired.

But I popped over to some of the blogs I frequent, and over at Ruby Press they posted about a Spring 2010 Campaign for the Dace Clothing Line. And let me just tell you, when I popped on over to Dace and saw the Campaign video, I about died.

It's no secret on this blog that I LOVE, ADORE, ADMIRE Europe,Paris especially. My heart hurts with missing. I found myself again on the streets of Paris after my dad died, so I have special feelings for Paris that no one can understand til they have been there. Europe changed my life. So I've been thinking alot about Paris recently, even mentioned to Josh how we should plan a trip there. He reminded me that it won't be that easy to visit next time being as it isn't a four hour train ride. It's nice to dream, though. My dream photo session would be a pretty girl or a couple on the streets of Paris, and this Campaign makes me want to do just that even more.

Take a look at the video here, and enjoy a few photos that I found via The Digital Darkroom. The colors, the location, everything make my heart happy and sad at the same time!

First photo is my absolute favorite. Totally my style!

Au Revoir!

Pitter Patter...

I think I've mentioned this before, but since my brother has been at college, we've been passing links back and forth for modern houses we think the other would like. Kyle always knows what I will like and for a guy, he has really good taste. He's always been drawn to modern homes and architecture, and I have always been drawn to older homes, that have character. But like I've said before, as I've gotten older, I've come to appreciate more modern homes, and have actually come to love them.

And being a photographer,I love light, natural light especially, so I love BIG windows, and they have become a must for me if/when Josh and I go to build (or buy) a house.

So because I like big windows, here is a house that's almost all windows. And one that I instantly fell in love with.

Love the warm lighting. I'd give my right arm to have this house... maybe

I love red, and I LOVE the use of it in the kitchen, I'd paint our cabinets red if Josh would agree to it!

Can you imagine the light that comes into this house? It would be even more amazing if it looked over a lake!

Have a fabulous weekend!

We got word yesterday that life was going to be able to go back to normal, and after my initial tears, prayers, and telling everyone I knew that everything was going to be okay, I hit a wall. It was finally okay to relax, to stop holding my breath, but it was the middle of the day, so I wasn't going to sleep. Although I almost fell asleep on my laptop a few times. It took everything I had to wait til Josh got home to take a nap. We "rested" which isn't really rest when we are on the most uncomfortable couch in the world, and when the dog is sleeping on my face, for about an hour.

Neither of us could sleep last night, I had too much running through my head. Prayers, and then the projects I need to take care of, and then details of the wedding I'm shooting next weekend. It starts to consume my sleep about two weeks before a wedding, and I was feeling good because I wasn't letting it take away from my sleep, but then I remembered last night that I had other things to worry about, so now I better start thinking about this wedding coming up. And there I am at 2 am thinking of poses, and time, and "Will this area work for the First Sight? Because the light over there is terrible." Josh tossed and turned too, and then the dog was on the bed. Yes, the dog was on the bed... Tossing, and turning and scratching, and running around. I was too tired to move her to her kennel, so there she "slept." Yea, I know it's bad to let her sleep with us.
And my mom will say, "You let a dog ruin your sleep?" This from a women who wouldn't let her kids on her side of the bed if they had a nightmare. That was dad's job. What a softy he was!

So this weekend, I'm hoping I get to spend some time recuperating. I need to work, but maybe I'll work from bed underneath our new fluffy down comforter! I wish I had this room to sleep in, I love everything about it. Oh what I would give to have a room just like that! Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone!

Not sure where the photo is from, I found it online a LONG time ago and saved it to my files.

Quote of the Day

Moon River might be my favorite song of all time. It's right up there with "Free Fallin'" by Tom Petty. There is just something about this song that is magical. I decided awhile ago that because I don't know any nursery rhymes (neither did my mom) I will sing Moon River to my kids. I'm also going to sing La Vie En Rose. Is it totally ridiculous that I already know what I'm going to sing to children I don't even have yet?
I tested it out on the dog the other day, Bella seems to like music, so when she was really tired, but too over stimulated to sleep, I sang to her and out she went. Yes, I'm not the crazy lady that sings to her dog. Whatever works, right? I suggest you go have a listen. The best versions are by Audrey Hepburn, Andy Williams, and Jane Monheit.
Have a magical day!

We are still dealing with our whopper of a start to 2010, so posting will be pretty light until this adversity has passed, I hope it passes soon. I have been brought to my knees once again, and am reeling on how to pick myself back up, and wondering how I am going to be able to shoulder the burden, and handle these next few weeks of not knowing with a heavy heart.
The only thing I have to hold onto is my faith. I'm praying for peace and strength along with so many other things these days. If you are reading this, any prayers for me and Josh and our family would be much appreciated. The power of prayer is such a comfort. I hope to be back to regular posting soon! Have a blessed week!
