Thrifty Thursday – Ashby In Carytown

June 4, 2015


Guys, I don’t know if you have ever been to the store Ashby (in Carytown) but it is truly a treasure of a store. They have the cutest clothes for AMAZING prices. All of the clothes are mostly used with the exception of some new stuff (jewelry, accessories, etc) but for the most part the stuff at this store is used. People bring their clothes in and sell them. Would you call this a “Thrift Store”? I don’t know but they are all in the same genre to me. So let me tell you about this fabulous outfit. These pants ( I have always wanted a pair) were in a bin that I’m obsessed with. As you walk through the door and go to your left you will find this treasure chest of a bin with a ton of stuff; shoes, clothes, purses and more. You put the items you want in a bag and they weigh them. I don’t exactly remember the process all I remember is the prices but for $10 THIS IS A STEAL & ONE HECK OF DEAL!!! The only thing is- the jeans are a little long. When you are 4’11” life is a little tough. I’ll have to get those suckers hemmed. Anyone hem? Thanks Ashby!!!

Shirt : Forever 21 $3.00

Jeans: The Loft $1.00

Heels: ON SALE (no name) $5.00

I see the beauty in imperfect things. As a Christ-follower, faith is central to my life, work, and connections. I am fueled by joy, known for my bubbly and sunny disposition, and always with a warm hug. Imperfect beauty inspires my love for all things vintage, abstract art, and real love stories. I love moments full of grit and emotion; life off the beaten path; stunning views along the shore; and the juxtaposition of New York grunge and laid back Cali-vibe. 

As a mother of two, I am very familiar with how quickly life’s most important moments fly by too quickly. I will calmly and seamlessly guide you through frames that will endure. I strive to capture your memories with one-of-a-kind images full of meaning. I cannot wait to connect with you! 

I bring all of these elements to my time with my couples. With over a decade of experience in the industry, I know how to gently guide you through poses that are natural and beautiful. The transition into this sentence doesn’t make sense. Throughout your day, you will feel the love from those there to celebrate
 you two. 
When I’m not photographing weddings, I enjoy long walks in the neighborhood with my husband, my kiddos Tuxie and Sunny, and my labradoodle Hokie.. Also, I am a huge dog-lover! I’m pretty sure heaven is full of dogs. I can’t wait to connect with you, and yes, your pup is always welcome here!
