Sunday Night- LC final episode on the Hills







There are so many endings and new beginnings crammed into the Hills season finale. I can't believe LC is leaving the show and Kristin Cavallari is taking her spot. I was never a fan of hers on Laguna Beach but maybe she changed for the better.
Here's a clip of Sunday night episode

Help me find a Tree Swing in Huntsville Area



Calling all my clients and anyone else that can help me find a tree swing in the Huntsville area. It can either be a tire swing or just a normal swing hanging from a tree. Moving to the South I have seen a view homes with this and I just love it! I would love to use this location for an upcoming photo shoot. So please if anyone can help me- I would really appreciate it! If you do find one and it's ok with the owner I will give you and the owner a Gift Cert.

Thanks~

I have been searching for a less expensive version of the famous WEN shampoo. I was at Sally's Beauty Store and I overheard a lady talking about this product and she said it was better than WEN. Hair One costs a fraction of the price of WEN only $9. Plus it's sulfate free. It is unique doesn't sud- up like shampoo because this is two in one.

Glee on FOX

Watch pilot episode of new show called Glee below. FOX has picked up 13 episodes of the hourlong comedy from "Nip/Tuck" creator Ryan Murphy. "Glee" follows an optimistic high school teacher Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) who strives to revive McKinley High School's Glee Club to once its glorious state. The club used to be on top of the choir world but due to some scandals over the years, it became the spot of misfits and social outcast. My husband and I really enjoyed this new show after American Idol- So please check it out on Hulu or Fox.com

Advice on how to dress for your family picture~


There are few questions I always get asked when I book a session - What do I wear? Should we all wear the same color?

Clothing choices are just as important for family sessions, as other sessions. I highly suggest clothing for each family member that has the same tone, not necessarily color. Please, and this is very important, be wary of stripes, plaid, words and logos on your family's clothing. These things can be a distraction from your beautiful family. Keep it simple is my motto
Also, leave your watches at home. Colors or patterns as they distract from your faces, glasses (they tend to cause glare), and chunky jewelry (becomes distracting from you). Also, this tip for the ladies please don’t wear sunscreen- make sure your foundation does not contain SPF- I don't exactly know the science behind that, but I know that sunscreen messes with the reflection. If you do use a foundation with a sunscreen, then use a powder over it without sunscreen.

Hair ideas

For all my clients who have little girls and are out ideas on how to fix their little girl hair for the picture. Well I have found the solution. Her name is Stephanie she is a mom of three- and she has a lovely hair blog- has tons & tons cute hair tutorial for your little girl. So please check out her site and besure to bookmark it. I have her website saved~ I don't even have a little girl- Hopefully one day soon. Have a lovely day everyone!

Minx Nails



Minx Nails strives to blend the lines between fashion and nails.  They strive to make painting your nails just as fun as getting dressed for the day.  

How it works: 

(Can be personalized just upload your fav picture Minx website minxs sends it to your local nail salon)


Minx is a solid film nail coating that comes in foil & sparkly metallic, photo quality designs & any color imaginable.. can be the exact pattern of your favorite shoe, purse, logo or outfit you desire... It can also be applied to your natural or acrylic nails ladies.. Not to mention, it's a GREEN product.. GREAT for the environment & staying cute works in my book...

So if you want your nails to make an impression on the crowd, Minx is the way to go...


“Because Minx is not a liquid and no hazardous chemicals are used in its application, manicurists can easily apply it to clients at the same time that hair and makeup are being done,”


Unfortunatly- there's no nail salon in Huntsville area that does this ~ the closest nail salon is below- So please ladies when you go get your nails done ask the nail tech about Minxs and just maybe Huntsville will get with the times.

Need your Feedback~




Well it's time for me to order more business cards. I found this die cut shape at Anthropologie. I even emailed the company asking their printing company- they told me the company name -so I emailed the company but it was too much $$$ - So here's the cards I will be getting instead. I think they are pretty cute- I designed them myself. 

PS- If anyone can help me find a place that does this die cut shape for a reasonable price- email me
Thank you sooo much!

Wordle is incredibly addicting


 Wordle is a fun website for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes.  It's so addicting and fun. I did two example: 1st one I used the song Lyrics to my wedding song Van Morrison "Someone like You" and the 2nd one just words I like~ Go ahead try it- then use that as your screen saver. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.

Love this idea


I found this website thru a blog. Such a brillant idea - Basically you keep one card for yourself and pass the rest out. Give them to a friend, family or even strangers or just leave one on a sidewalk,in a public building. Creative idea-  

Here's Heidi website
click here: I Love You Cards

Do you work at or frequently visit an office building or clinic



 Do you work at or frequently visit an office building or clinic? Do you have a favorite children's clothing store or specialty store that you shop at? Where do your friends and family members shop for their kids? I'm looking for professional establishments that would like beautiful artwork to display in their public space. Displays would consist of large-format wall prints (single or collection of multiple images). Alternative media can be arranged if desired. Please contact me~

* Examples locations would include (but are not limited to) Doctors offices, Children Boutiques, Hair Salons, Coffee Shops, Business Offices, Maternity Clothing Stores, waiting rooms, ultrasound clinics or any other establishments.

What's in it for you? Beautiful portraits of your family -FOR FREE! I'M OFFERING A $100 PRINT CREDIT FOR EACH LOCATION THAT ACCEPTS MY DISPLAYS.
