Cassie & Dustin are Engaged!

We spent last weekend in San Diego and met up with this adorable couple for their beach engagement session. We had a few bumps in the road trying to make this day work, but thankfully it was all worth it. Even though this beach was the busiest beach I’ve ever seen in my life, we managed to find our own little space! As I expected, photographing barefoot in the sand is pretty awesome!

Here are a few favorites. Check out our facebook page to see a few more.

Around the House

Have you ever seen someone doing something and instantly you know you would enjoy it? That’s how I felt about quilting. I knew that it was something I would like and I do indeed LOVE it. The strange thing is, I can’t really “sew”. If I’m asked to do something other than quilt, I can’t do it. Maybe I should take a basic sewing class? Seriously, I can’t hardly sew a button or a hem (and when I do attempt it, the result looks kind of funky), but quilting has my heart. Eventually I'll be making a giant yellow quilt for myself. That might take some time, though.

A few years ago, my Dad was helping a friend clean out his friends parent's old house (that's a mouth full) and found this sewing machine. They were going to throw it away and he asked if he could have it... and now I have it. Normally it stays in it’s cabinet (it’s the kind that is it’s own table) and my actual sewing machine is stored on top of it, but occasionally I take it out, dust it off, admire it, and wonder who it was who used it. This past week I decided to photograph it. The pins that are tied around the center were there when my Dad brought it home. I don’t have the heart to remove them as I think they add to the story of this machine. I’m just not sure exactly what that story is yet.

The cabinet is a little slanted and not in the best condition. I'd love to get it fixed by a professional one day.

My random pins. I love them!

I toss all of the scraps of fabric from past projects into this bowl. Eventually I think it'd be fun to do something with all of the random pieces. I also love how it looks all clumped together. Makes me smile every time I enter the room. Isn't it strange how the weirdest things can make us happy. :)

Derek & Kaelynn are Engaged!

We recently met up with this cute couple (the winners from our Bridal Fashion Debut contest!) for an early evening engagement session. We met up with them at 7 p.m. and it was still over 110 degrees! Ouch! Phoenix can be painful sometimes. Even with the heat, we all pulled through and managed to get some great photos of the pair. Here are a few of my favorites.
