My home, living room

lo and behold, my living room.


This desk was used by my grandma in their kitchen and then passed on to me while I was in school.

The paint is original. These gloves were my friend Julie's husbands grandmothers. The drawer pulls are from anthropologie.



My couch was purchased from a thrift store in Petersburg, Virginia for $80.00.




This globe was my grandmothers, the suitcases were thrifted for $4 a piece, the lamp stand was thrifted for $3.50 and the shade was on clearance at Target for $7.50. The turquoise frame holds a signed polaroid from the Civil Wars show in Charlottesville.



My chair was purchased from a thrift store for $25 (are you seeing a theme here?) and I made the pillow out of fabric scraps. This scrap happened to be my dads wedding shirt. oops.

My mom reupholstered this footstool with scrap fabric for $1.50

These are antique hatboxes purchased for $4 a piece at a yardsale

Shabby Chic table was purchased from goodwill for $12, the lamp stand was thrifted for $3.50 and the shade was on clearance at Target for $7.50, the books were acquired at an estate sale and the record was given to me by an old friend. "K" cup was on clearance at anthropologie.

A chalkboard frame I found fo $10. I use it to record my past wedding dates as art.

news like shoes, personal

Just a bunch of random information, this post.

On Monday, April 11 (yes, the one coming up) I am offering an all day mentoring session with a beautiful bride in Nags Head. If you're a photographer looking to get started, come along for an 8 hour drive and we'll chat about business, editing and what my favorite candy bar is. You're welcome to keep all of your photos and use them in your portfolio. I'll even throw in a mini session for you on the beach-great for headshots. We'll go over posing, interacting, how to compose a good photograph and how to use one spot for lots of photos.

If you're already a photographer in the BIZ and just need some fresh portraits to add or blog, I'd love to have you as well. I won't pretend like I know everything because I certainly don't. We'll just hang out and bounce ideas off of each other and talk about polar bears & slurpees. I'll throw in headshots for you, as well.

there is ONE spot so email me for more information.
