UNbridled {equestrian bridal}: Kati

Friday, April 29th, 2011

ok, I have to admit. This made me want to put my wedding dress on again. Isn’t she gorgeous? The buttercups (while otherwise a nuisance to horse owners) were a most gorgeous backdrop for bridal shots. Don’t we all dream of wearing a flowing white dress in a field of flowers with horses? (ok, well…hopefully its not JUST me…) ๐Ÿ˜‰

Watching the royal wedding this morning (well, I watched the recap of it…I missed it live) made me open my mind up to dream. So what do you do with this? Look around you. ย Take a color, an expression, or a look and use it for inspiration. Dream in pictures of your own. Write a story, paint a picture, do something that expresses you and your unique view of the world. YOUR creative eye and mind.

These images are a direct product of dreaming…. representations of fairy tale longings I have seen in my (more…)

Penrose SPRING minis!!

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011

What you need to know is that this farm is magical. Life abounds. Flowers, trees, animals, beauty. I was just telling Kristen the other day, “when I think of “home” I think of Penrose first.” And as strange as it is, its true. While I can only give you words to describe my experience, I wish that you all COULD experience it. Taking pictures there can give you a glimpse, but those who knew this farm as “home” at one time or another know what I mean.

Dear Penrose Spring Mini Sessioners, I envy you. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I seriously had a blast working with everyone and meeting your horses. You’d never even know that we (more…)

Stronger…

Thursday, April 21st, 2011

“When the waves are taking you under
Hold on just a little bit longer
He knows that this is gonna make you stronger, stronger
The pain ain’t gonna last forever
And things can only get better
Believe me
This is gonna make you stronger.”

“stronger” by-Mandisa

Anytime I get teary when I listen to the words of a song, I feel it completely necessary to share. When I looked up this artist and discovered that her album was entitled “what if we were real,” I was sold. It was like someone read my mind. ๐Ÿ˜‰

sweet sophia

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

You may recognize this face from a few months ago (6 to be more precise). Its baby sophia! The baby in the box! ๐Ÿ˜‰ She is growing like a champ and has the sweetest, most precious smile. I absolutely love it!

Enjoy a few of her spring 6 month shots (more…)

UNbridled {equestrian bridal}

Monday, April 18th, 2011

In this instance, the lucky one was ME. This was so very very cool.
Can you say with any true conviction that there is anything more beautiful than a bride among wild horses? I can’t. And while these horses are the opposite of wild (though at times their owners would surely object), they definitely let their more natural-side shine for this. Miraculous behavior swept across this herd and although they were clearly EXTRA curious, not once did they even consider a move in malice….not even toward (more…)

Writers. Block.

Saturday, April 16th, 2011

I have to admit, I have MANY blog drafts started and zero completed. I started to set up April’s newsletter 2 weeks ago and sat down today to finish it and just couldn’t. “I just don’t have anything to say.” Which is strange because TONS has been going on. I have the dreaded writers block. {I thought I signed up to shoot (more…)
