vintage val

I'm photographing a wedding today, and I am SO nervous! I can't wait to get there and start shooting, though. In honor of this occasion, I've combed my archives, and found some pictures of a wedding I shot almost 5 years ago, with real film! The couple is Joe & Edye Head, and they are very special to me. Joe actually officiated my own wedding 2 years ago. I'm so grateful they invited me to play such an important role in their big day.

yet another cookout

and our popularity grows..

ikea is the root of all home decorating happiness

Well, it is for me, anyway! Check out the new bedding. I think it's pretty calm, and a bit sophisticated (a big step for me).

it's the season for cookouts

This is the one I went to LAST week. I have some more pictures from last night's cookout that I might post, too. I'm seriously starting to think that we are quite the popular couple, making our way through the cookout scene. I know, I know, I shouldn't let it go to my head...

A couple of pictures of my boy's band. He's the blurry one in the background at the keyboards.

I now know the magic of a 50mm lens, and it's the best $117 I have ever spent!

we fancified our old locker

I've had this locker for years. I bought it to go in the entry of the loft that my mom and I shared. It was perfect for keeping coats, scarves and hats in. When my husband and I bought our house, we moved the locker into my art room where it sat looking all old and dejected because I never used it. Truth be told, it looked kind of nasty outside of the loft.

So I did what I always do when faced with an ugly old piece of furniture. I broke out the spray paint! I turned that dingy old locker into an organized, pretty, glorious example of a wrapping storage area. I'm pretty darn proud of it.

I store scissors and tape and other wrapping sundries in those top Ikea drawers. the hanging canvas bags contain gift bags of various sizes. I keep boxes in the bottom.
I keep tissue paper in those plastic magazine organizers on the right side.
We drilled these little hooks into the side to make this handy little ribbon holder.
To think I almost scrapped it!
