Black friday SALE

The Entire Store is On Sale!


Black Friday used to mean getting up at 3am to stand in line at BestBuy but not anymore! I think Michael and I have out grown that phase of our lives! haha We got our crazy cheap TV one year and I think that was our BLACK FRIDAY fix for a while!! I can promise you, we’ll NEVER be the people camping outside in a tent waiting for a good deal. Well, unless of course it’s something at the APPLE Store. Michael is weirdly obsessed with that place. :) So anyway, If you’re like us and you’re shopping from HOME, then you’ll be excited to learn that our ENTIRE STORE is on sale today!!

  • A Classic Fall Engagement | Old Town Alexandria

You would think that I would get tired of shooting in Old Town Alexandria. Sometimes when you shoot in the same place you feel like you can’t be creative or create unique images but this is NOT the case in Alexandria! This quaint town is full of so many alleyways, old homes and perfect door frames! James and Maggie showed up ready to explore and that’s exactly what we did! We met on King Street and then headed to the residential streets to start the shoot!

  • Creative at Heart Charleston & A Mini-Vacay!

A couple of years ago I had NEVER stepped foot in Charleston! It was a magical place that I had only heard about. The last several years, I have visited Charleston at least once or twice a year and I’m loving it! The food, the old homes, the spanish moss, the shopping! It’s one of my favorite places to travel to! This time we were visiting Charleston for a very exciting purpose! Creative at Heart ROUND 3!! I seriously can’t believe C@H has only been around for less than a year!
