The Homestead in Glen Arbor, MI is one of my favorite venues, and was the perfect backdrop for DeAnna and Randy’s wedding. Along with their son, they celebrated the day with family and friends against the gorgeous backdrop of Lake Michigan, only about 25 minutes from Traverse City. A photographer really couldn’t ask for more. Check out the photos after the jump. . .
Cheers to Maggie and Robert! Their June wedding was so fun and sweet, just like the couple themselves. They were married at their family cottage under a lone tree by the beach that was hanging with colorful blown glass globes. There were so many fun, creative touches- everyone I met was an artist in one way or another! One of my favorite things- Maggie’s pearl necklace was her grandmother’s. . . she had opened a bank account way back when and that was the gift they were giving out for opening a bank account! Grandmother’s bank account pearls :) Maggie’s dress was a vintage find that fit her perfectly and went so well with those pearls. I could go on, but my job was to take the pictures, so here they are!! Continue reading »
Yet again, Twin Bay Glass is a source of inpiration. It’s always a joy to drive down 8th Street and see what they are offering up for the ever-rotating display of thoughtful quotes under their sign.
“When your work speaks for itself, don’t interrupt.”
The quote is attributed to Henry J. Kaiser, whoever that is.
Certainly better than “20% off Windshild Chip Repair” or the like! (Although, when I did need a chip repaired recently, you better believe I just drove on over to Twin Bay Glass, mostly because of their awesome quotes!)
On that note, that’s all for now :)
Florida was fantastic! Perfect weather, lots to see and do, and the wildlife was a welcome treat in the middle of winter. Everyone knows I love birds of all types, and considering I have never seen some of Florida’s large feathered inhabitants, I probably over-shot. Oh, wait- there’s no such thing! So without further ado, here are a bunch of pictures of a blue heron that decided to come hang out with us on the beach one day.
I created this little motivational photo today to help everyone with their New Year’s resolutions! I’ve got some doozies I need help with. No coffee- whaaaat? I must be crazy. We’ll see how it goes. Word to the wise- give me a pretty wide path for the next few weeks! BTW, this photo was taken when I went to China and climbed the Great Wall. Climbing that thing was really tough, especially since there’s other ways to get up there! Maybe I should make exercise my New Year’s resolution :)
Now that I’ve fully gone digital and become a truly 21st Century girl, I thought I’d spruce up some prints from my last big overseas adventure. These are from 2005 (wow- that long ago?!?!) and the ones below are from Russia, part of my railway trip from St. Petersburg, through Mongolia, and over to Beijing, China.
