All Of The New Things!

Our blog is about to enter its terrible two's and it is sure growing up. We got a new look thanks to our friend Nora Housler and got some new photos taken by Rachel Norris--who is working with our very own Sarah taking photographs for the newly engaged and newly wed! Check that fun out here!

Now onto the main event.

******Spoiler alert****** 

We are very poised and professional models and take the art VERY seriously. You will be able to tell that immediately. 

We look like grown ups. 
Tough grown ups.
I'm an ass.

Sadie is way more into the berries than modeling and still did the best out of all of us!
We had a lot of fun taking these photos last week and it was a nice excuse to all get together. Not to mention that Danielle loathes berries so that was fun to watch her eat them, and her daughter Sadie got to hang out with us too and we became fast friends over applesauce so I'd stamp the adventure one big freaking success! We won't discuss the torrential down pour that caught us after dinner...let's keep this positive and light. 

Thanks for sticking around with us for this long, and here is hoping to many more years!

Karlie & Ben

Earlier this month I had the honor of making some photographs of Ben & Karlie to help celebrate their engagement. I was pretty excited when they were into the idea of me shooting it all on film. I shot some polaroids & about 10 rolls of 35mm including some slide film. I got the film back last week and was thrilled with the outcome.

Congratulations you guys! <3

I have also been photographing weddings with my friend, Rachel.
You can see our work here.

Mini No Bake Cheese Cakes

Cheesecake is hands-down my all time favorite treat and I have an obsession with collecting cupcake wrapper.... so, I was pretty excited to try out this little recipe:

Step number one: crush up some graham crackers or some crispy cookies & fill the bottoms of the cupcake wrappers.

Step number two: mix together 8 oz of cream cheese with 1/4 cup of sugar.

Step number three: fold in 8oz of whipped cream.

Step number four: spoon topping into the prepared cupcake wrappers.

Step number five: adorn with any extra toppings you fancy.

I used vanilla wafers for my crust.

My Life.

So here is a glimpse into my wonderfully wacky life! We recently moved into a new house that has a pool! As you can tell by the photo below Sadie is thrilled.

I am a stay at home mom so my life basically consists of watching soap network and playing with Sadie! I do a lot of playing with ponies and coloring.

I also have a pretty cute husband that takes us to do fun things like getting us all access to Vans Warped Tour. Not gonna lie I didn't know any of the bands that were there, but all in all it was pretty fun!

I went to my fifth NKOTB concert and got to see Jordan Knight sing a Prince song... I cried!

Oh and there's this guy... I'm obsessed!

 Well, that's my life. Awesome husband, hilarious three year old, a handsome nephew, soap operas, and sexy celeb crushes! Jealous much?!
