I am so excited for today! This brand is something that I have been dreaming about for the last two years, and I am so excited that it finally has come to fruition! It is so wonderful to see something you have been dreaming about actually out there instead of just in your head! I have to give a huge shout to Chelsea Petaja (from Oh My Deer Handmades) for the amazing logo, she is awesome!

One of the big changes I wanted to make with this new brand is that I want to do portraits again. At one point I decided to cut back and only shoot weddings and engagements, but I miss shooting other things! I want to shoot more than just weddings! So if you are someone who has wanted a portrait session with me in the past, this is your chance! :)

One of my other dreams, is to travel more! I have been blessed to have traveled to some awesome places, and have some great places on the books for 2015, but there are more places I want to go! I have complied a dream list on my website. If your wedding or portrait session is in one of these places, than I want to talk to you! I have a special offer for you!

I am also doing a little giveaway today! So check below with how to enter! I am giving away 1. one 8×10 print from Chelsea at Oh My Deer Handmades 2. A session with me! 3. A gift card to Etsy  4. A gift card to Target

Enter the giveaway below!!!
