2016 is in the books. I've laughed, I've cried and most importantly I witnessed. Here is to the end of 2016 and the beginning of a new year!
This summer I was hitting a wall. I'd like to think of it as writer's block... except for photography. I think every creative goes through this at some point when doing an art full time. With weddings, I don't always get the opportunity to share creativity. The day is organized and planned out and that leaves me with 20 minutes with the bride and groom, typically, to be creative. So I had to go out and do something for myself. An itch that definitely needed to be scratched. Feel me? A friend that I had met about five years back is just getting into modeling. She was wanting to shoot with me and I her, so at 1pm in the afternoon we did exactly that! No golden hour, gorgeous sun, but it was definitely challenging and pushed me to be better.
Hey all! :) I have to say that I'm a coffee lover. Typically I go to Starbucks because I know that what I order will usually always taste the same. I wish I could say I try out new cool little coffee shops each week, but to be honest I'm a stay at home mom. No one seems to love when I bring my littles in with me... it's just not the right atmosphere. However, when I get to meet with potential brides, we always choose a fun coffee shop and get a little something yummy to sip on while chatting about ...
I'm so thrilled to share our story of how our second born, Cohen, arrived. Cohen Eli was due October 10th 2014. On Tuesday, October 7th, in the evening around 8:30pm- my water broke. I was just laying down on the couch and yep, pretty sure that was what it felt like to have your water break. "CLAY! I think my water just broke!" I yelled.
We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our second child, due October 10th 2014. We are expecting a baby boy! Today I'm 38 1/2 weeks along. Only ten days until the due date to meet this sweet bundle of joy. . . I can't wait to share our newest member of the family very soon. :) Much love and blessings! Rachel:)
After watching Zach and Jody Gray rock my photography world, I decided to take their advice and use a wedding album company called KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid). I was sold on these beautiful books after learning (& looking) at a few things they have to offer. 1) THEY SMELL GOOD. Sounds strange, but these bad boys are made of 100% natural full grain hides. Full-grain hides feel better, last longer, and are more attractive than bonded-leather covers.
2) KISS books are SQUARE. How fun is SQUARE? Super fun. They open up and are just HUGE. The 12x12 book opens to 24 inches across. 24 inches of beautifulness.
3) Pages are THICK. KISS album pages are super thick as you can see. They don't bend or break easily. They also lay flat...
4) Pages LAY FLAT. :) Alllll the way across, a SMOOTH beautiful album. Need I say more? :)
5) They'll LAST. A lot of people opt and go with a cheaper book, because it is cheaper now. These real wedding albums are made to last. You won't have to replace these. Your grandchildren will be able to hold onto these. They are hand made, and the best of the best. Also, the crease won't fade away, like most others will.
6) One more thing... these aren't predesigned. They are custom. :)
This is a sample album that I show clients. It is the 12x12 size, opens to 24 inches across and is in the color "TWIG".
If you are a colorful person, these come in a variety of colors, as well as great neutrals. :) So.Fun.
*Disclaimer: This post is in no way sponsored or paid for by KISS. I use KISS myself and these are my honest, personal opinions of the companies wedding albums.
