Takin' Care of Business

07 January 2014

Pin It


We are on day two of being "snowed in" here.  It certainly is cold outside, so I have been taking the time to catch up on editing, and preparing my welcome packets for new brides of 2014.  I love my new planner, and making the first marks and appointments is so fun. That is a little nerdy, but whatever!  We are staying extra warm in the house....as you can see Bella Louise is a little clingy.  She is not a fan of these negative temperatures and insane wind chills!

I am also in the process of re-designing my website AND this blog.  I am so excited to be planning a much more cohesive brand and a much friendlier user experience for you all. For example, I want to be able to share my photography work, but in a way that doesn't interfere with the more "personal" side of things over here.  I also am excited to start a series of posts JUST for photographers and creatives which include things like tutorials for beginners (how to use your camera) as well as more specific things like the why's and how's of a first look on wedding day.

And since this IS a personal blog, and much of my life revolves around my family I will also be doing a weekly post on Caleb. A lot of bloggers are jumping on board the #52weeks project and documenting something or someone in their lives.  I think its going to be a blast to look back on weekly portraits of Caleb and see how he is growing and changing.

We MAY venture outdoors today... but I also may just stay cozied up in my bedroom, playing with Caleb and preparing for the wonderful wedding season of 2014.  I have my Southern Weddings, Martha Stewart and The Knot magazines to go through for inspiration, lots of warm beverages and my little woofer girl in my lap.  I hope you all are staying warm wherever you are!

  3. i'm so curious, i have to ask. who takes so many of these photos like the ones today? does your husband do it, or do you set your camera up on a tripod and use a remote?

    1. Yes, my husband takes them usually. I did just get a remote for Christmas so I am sure I will be taking a lot more of these by myself when I have time!

  7. This is going to sound creepy..but you have such pretty ladylike hands! I tend to notice people's hands a lot. It is one of my little quirks haha. I am on the lookout for a new planner. There is something so exciting about filling up a planner with all kinds of new adventures and plans.
