We all have to do our part – REGISTER & VOTE

My good friend and fellow photographer Tiffany Hix posted these videos on her blog, and I was so moved by them, I wanted to share them here too.    In the state that the world and the United States is in today, how can you not vote?

The first video is funny, but has a good message!    Lots of famous faces!

This second video gave me chills.  

Broken Washing Machine + 3 kids + Laundry Mat = Fun?

So our washing machine has been out for two weeks now.  I know there are people out there that can sympathize with this… a family of 5 makes a lot of dirty clothes, in my calculations, one load of laundry a day (if not more).      So what’s a girl to do when faced with the joys (insert sarcasm) of hauling loads and loads of dirty clothes, 3 kids, and one less enthused husband to the  local laundry mat?  Turn it into a photog day, of course!   It was a great way to pass the time in between loads.    So 2 1/2 hours later, and I dont know how many loads of laundry later, this is what I came up with!

Wow…you got me wanting to take a trip to the laundry mat. These are awesome Rae. Love your processing, it’s absolutely perfect. You even managed to make a gunky hair ball look amazing. Fantastic. Hope your laundry situation gets resolved soon! 🙂

Friday Freebie: Thanksgiving Card

Finishing up my family photo session, and I was inspired to make a Happy Thanksgiving card.  Thanks to the wonderful designers at Pixels and Ice Cream for their retro flower pattern, I was able to construct a cute little 5×5 card!    And it’s your for the taking, download here. and here.  (one link for the front and one for the back).

Beautiful 8×8 Coffee Table book

I had a recent boudior session a few weeks ago, and my client ordered an 8×8 coffee table book with all the images from her gallery put in it.    She gave it to her husband as a birthday gift!    This book is gorgeous!   When the client saw it, she loved it.  When her husband saw it, he called me on the phone to tell me how much he loved it too!       This book is beautifully made with a leather cover, which comes in a deep red (pictured), a chocolate brown, or a classic black.


When you open the book, there is a black linen cover page,  then your cover page follows.

The corners are nicely folded with a black linen paper cover.



Every page is bound nicely and neatly in the center.  It’s construction is sturdy and will last for many years to come.

For now, I have a 10×10 and an 8×8 book available.
