Thrifty Thursday – Jackpot Finds

August 20, 2015


For today’s Thrifty Thursday, I’m telling you, I hit the jackpot at Goodwill. First off I found these two INCREDIBLE old mirrors; One large, black, oval shaped one (previously been painted) and a smaller square one. What I like about these two mirrors is the incredible organic designs around the glass. You could hang the oval one up by itself or pair it with other things. The smaller gold one would look AMAZING in hangin collage of assortments above a couch, bed or desk. My game plan : to spray paint both of these. The mirrors I found reminded me of some of the ones at Anthropologie.  Next amazing find is a beautiful black dress by Monteau. Having a black dress is a serious essential for girl, and you can NEVER have to many. Can I get an amen??  Next (I’m so excited about this one) is a book called Handmade Weddings. When I was planning my wedding I wanted this book so bad but never bought it. It has so many wonderful, crafty ideas in it. Even still – a fabulous book if you are married! Lastly I found this cute basket and gorgeous scarf. I thinking why not put blankets in it in my living room?? All it takes is a little patience, and some sorting through things and you can find awesome things! Why pay full price?

The mirrors need a little TLC and Windex but still A STEAL!

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!
