That One Time I Got A New Camera for Christmas

Pin It

As many of you know, my husband Reggie is a super-talented and creative guy.  He loves working on BMWs, as well as special interest cars, like old GMC and Chevy trucks, vintage MGs, cars of all kinds.  Some of you have seen his sculptures over the years too.  We used to have a table made from an engine block that ran for the last time at the track during a driving school.  It will soon be for sale, since it's not the most toddler-friendly coffee table around!  He's also made a taller cocktail type table, a cat, a dog …all out of recycled BMW parts that he keeps around at his shop.  They are all so cool and so unique!  Well, this Christmas, I unwrapped a camera box, which he found in the basement, and inside was another one of his hand-crafted pieces…a camera!  I couldn't believe it!  I was totally surprised and totally flattered by this one-of-a-kind work of art, complete with a rotating lens!

I love that the shutter is a nod to old school film cameras.  Using a 35mm, Reggie studied photography in high school learned to process his own film in the darkroom.  

A friend of ours has commissioned Reggie to build a similar camera as a gift to her husband!

I love his perspective on the world, and how he always sees things in a different light.  I'm so blessed to be married to such a imaginative, inspiring, and supportive man, who continually encourages me to chase my dreams.  I love you, Reggie!

Lucy Beatrice | Almost 1

Pin It

It seems like just last week I was photographing this sweet baby girl at home with her family... And soon she will be turning 1!  Time flies!  She came over to the studio (more on this coming soon!) for some portraits to document her upcoming birthday.  Lucy loves to crawl and will soon be walking!  She is quick too!  Lucy, you are just a doll!  Those bright and beautiful blue eyes, that sweet smile, and absolutely adorable wardrobe - it was a whirlwind of cuteness!  I want to wish you a wonderfully happy 1st birthday!  Family and friends can view her online gallery here.  Here are a few favorites to enjoy!

Seriously pretty, Miss Lucy!

Lucy, thank you so much for coming to visit me!  
You are such a sweetheart, and such a happy baby girl!
Happy Birthday to you!!!

My Little Guy

Pin It

Happy Friday!  Just a quick post to share some personal photos with you, photos that are perfectly imperfect, photos that I will always cherish, photos that capture moments in time that I always want to remember.  They're all taken with my iPhone camera, and they all happen to be in black and white!  My little guy is almost 18 months.  He walks, he runs, he chases the dog and laughs and squeals.  He loves red grapes and strawberries and bananas.  Giraffes and monkeys are two of his favorite animals, and he's particularly talented at making sheep noises….baaa!  I love him to pieces.  And I'm so thankful to be his Mommy!

Have a wonderful weekend!
