A Home Made for Hosting

  • Intentional Inspiration

I’m REALLY excited about this post! This has been in the works for months. Ever since I took a blogging hiatus, I have had this reoccurring thought and feeling that there is something changing in my world of decor/home inspiration posts. I love decorating. If someone asked me “If you had a full day off and could do ANYTHING creative, what would it be?”…. my answer would be DECORATING! I love it. It inspires me and makes me feel creative!

A Special Feature

  • My sister's Wedding in The Knot!

Normally I refrain from posting one whole post about one feature but this one is special to me! Back in 2011, our wedding was published in an issue of The Knot for Va, Md and DC! I was just beside myself with excitement!!! At the time, print features were still new to me and so to see my OWN wedding in a magazine was just CRAZY! Well, fast forward 3 years later, my sister is getting to experience the same excitement!!!

Shoot & Share Contest

  • Have Fun, Be Recognized.... & Be Organized!

There have been a LOT of giveaways happening lately. We’re currently hosting a giveaway for WPPI and voting began yesterday for our massive wedding giveaway. It’s just CRAZY! Often times, photographers get so carried away in marketing and blogging and emails and editing that they don’t take time to really enjoy their work. I know I fall into this category. Sometimes I forget that I didn’t just make money and serve people in 2014, I also created some really pretty pictures!!! Each year the Shoot & Share community hosts a MASSIVE contest for ALL TYPES of photographers! It’s awesome!!! … It’s also really addictive!
