Let Them Be Little and Shelf Makeovers


Whipped up this baby in no time:



Here's a little secret: It's not paint.  It's Sharpie.

I don't trust my painting skills so on a whim I tried marker.  Low and behold, it looks like it was printed right on there.

Family photo taken by Brittney Davis Photography in Allen, TX.


Also, I got a killer deal on some solid wood shelves but they needed some help.  Hopefully, I will put together a better shoot to show off these ladies.  For now, here are their before and after:




Are you in the Austin, TX area?  I'd love to photograph your family/newborn/kids, etc.  
Contact me for details.

After a long break, I am back at work!

I would love to be your photographer.  If you are in or near Pflugerville, Texas, please shoot me an email and let's discuss your session.

Because I am trying to build my portfolio and clientele, I am offering a discounted rate to all sessions.  All sessions (newborn, family/kids, engagement or senior) are $150 until January 1, 2015.

I look forward to meeting you!

Welp, we're still here!

No change as of yet as far as moving goes.  The only change happening here is a new challenge I am taking.  More on that later.
For now, here's my recent shoot of my kids.  My boy is nearly 7 years and my girls are 4 years and 6 months.  Where has the time gone?

We're Hoping for Change

There's a buzz in our house that could spell major change for our family.  No announcements yet but in preparation  my living room looks like this:

Getting ready for a garage sale!  It's my first ever and I'm trying to be ultra-organized.  We are trying to get rid of as much clutter as possible.  You have to make clutter to rid yourself of it, it seems.  It's hard saying goodbye to some of our things but we need to keep moving forward.

And here was the best shot I could get of all 3 Easter morning.  Still need a new family picture.




 I finished our wall measuring stick a couple months ago.  I'm pretty happy with the results.  I distressed the wood myself and had stained it with two stains.  The pictures just don't do it justice. 
Total cost was roughly $11!  
I am excited to have this with us for the rest of our lives.

Here it is in our hallway:

Another Year Gone By...

I can't believe I let a whole year slip away! Truth is, I had a very difficult pregnancy and had to eliminate the 'excess.'  Baby is here now and I am starting to get back into the groove of motherhood and life in general.  
Here's a little peek at last year's Christmas card:

I got so many compliments on our card this year and I have to thank Candra for designing this card.  If you are interested in any type of custom card, I highly recommend Candra.  Email her at shedesignscmb@gmail.com.


Also today is the Anniversary of marrying my best friend and the person who has always accepted me for me.  Happy 7th Anniversary to us.

Here's to 70 more together!


If there is anyone still reading this silly blog, thanks for sticking with me.  Let's see if I can get back on track.

Happy New Year!

i know, i'm a bit late...

So New Years was so nineteen days ago, right?  Well, this isn't about my resolutions cuz I didn't really make any, though I do so want to be tanner.  I dream big, I know.  This is about my word of the year.  I did this last year - you can read about it here.  I've taken this long because I've been trying to come up with a more profound word.  Nothing is coming to mind, so I guess that must mean something.  This year, I just want to be better.  I want to be a better wife.  A better mother. Better to my body.  A better sister, friend, photographer, cook, gardener, etc.  That sounds like a tall order but I'm only looking for incremental growth in all those areas.  OK, maybe not incremental.  Measurable.  Steady.  I'm not trying to become a world-class anything.  Just better.  Maybe that's not a big enough thing, but that's what's in my heart right now.  I want to make each day better because I'm trying just that little bit extra.  I want to do my part and maybe a little bit more.  I want to be more conscientious of how I handle each moment.

Did you make a resolution?  Do you keep your resolutions?  Have you (eek!) broken your resolution already?
