Red, Red, Red!

1. My growing arsenal of red & pink items for upcoming Sweet Valentine sessions.  I love my vintage Good Guy soda bottle :)

2. Red pants & red nail polish!

3. I love my little red cardinal but I also love the card case it's perched on. Definitely getting into the Valentine's Day spirit :)

Happy Friday!

Someone posted something like this on my FB wall the other day:

Camera lens coffee mugs. Hmm.. I like these but would I use them? Yes, I think I would! It got me thinking, what other useful things are out there shaped like a camera or lens?

How about this wooden tape dispenser?

Yes, I would use this!

How about this retro style vinyl camera bag?

Yep, I'd use this too.

Camera notebooks? 

Sure, why not :)

Little camera magnets

Yes Please!

Thanks Adrianna, for inspiring a shopping spree :) Now if I could only find a camera toaster oven.

What is your obsession as of late?

Family Photo Session - Janette & Louie

Love love love this little family. 
And it's not just because they ARE family :) 
My sis Janette & family spent the weekend in Tempe and we finally took time to take family pictures. 
We ran around the zoo for a few hours and were able to get so many great photos. 
Kids are surprisingly willing to sit and smile if you bribe them with a chance to touch a stingray.

Cannot wait to shoot again at the Phoenix Zoo!

Thank you Janette & Louie :)

Favorites Friday - Valentine's

Favorites this week!

1. Valentines Day! Yes, it's several weeks away but everything red & pink is cathing my eye. Hearts and love and sweet vintage Valentine cards have been on my mind this week.

2. DIY headbands and crowns. After making the garland I posted last Friday I took leftover twine, ribbon and silk flowers to create these two headbands. I used them in the session in my previous post and they fit perfectly. It was so easy - I am hooked! Can't wait to try other variations :)

3. Chalk. When is the last time you used chalk?  I've been using chalk to add some colorful backgrounds to my photo sessions. I didn't think I could have so much fun with it! I have more ideas for using it and the kids... well, let's just say there is a ton of chalk graffiti all over my backyard wall.

Looking forward to a great weekend. Happy Friday!

Favorites Friday

Three of my favorite things this week :)

1. Small purses. For years I have carried giant handbags that can probably carry the kitchen sink - literally! But this week I strapped this cute leather made-in-mexico bag over my shoulder. My card case, iphone and lipstick fit perfectly. So much more convenient!

2. Moroccan Argan Oil. This stuff smells so good and makes my hair feel sooo soft. Love it! It is made by Organix and can be found at most stores that sell hair products.

3. DIY garlands. I made the one in the image above after finding a tutuorial here. I can use garlands for photo sessions and I'm excited to make more. I feel a garland phase coming on...

Happy Friday!
