best thrifting day
September 7, 2015

My friend Maggie invited me to thrift this morning bright and early. I couldn’t wait. I had my iced coffee and mental list. With thrifting sometimes you have good days, other times not so much. As I’ve changed the way I organize sessions I’m in search of a few key vintage inspired props. I’m still […]

photo challenge: home
September 7, 2015

I have basically lived out of an overnight bag since September of last year. It brings me such great joy to have finally found a cute apartment to put down some “roots” in. I am a home loving kind of person! I’m hoping to move in in the next few weeks… they are redoing the […]

photo challenge: three of a kind
September 6, 2015

I’m not really one for a lot of collections. I like stuff and have amassed quite a bit of it over the years, but recently– as in six months ago, I sold nearly every bit of stuff minus sentimental things that I owned. During that time I felt very happy and at ease (peaceful, really!) […]

photo challenge: frustrating
September 6, 2015

I’m about two seconds from falling asleep on top of my MacBook, but still wanted to update for today’s challenge: Frustrating. Ah! There are so many frustrating parts to daily life, right? I try {like most} not to focus on them, but oddly enough the recent days have been frustration free. It probably has to […]

photo challenge: vibrant
September 4, 2015

I love rich, jewel toned colors as much as chippy-white, water colored pastels. There’s truly something soulful about deeper tones. When I think of the vibrant colors that tug my heart the most I think of kelly green, autumn leaf gold, and night water turquoise. Gah! I love color. I digress… today’s challenge pointed me […]

photo challenge: shiny & new
September 3, 2015

Little known random fact: I am a child of a small business owner. Big chunks of my childhood were spent at the office store or organizing supplies in the home office. Perhaps this is where my love for office product comes from. I especially love to see simple items gathered together in large quantities. Just […]

photo challenge: peculiar
September 2, 2015

Well, I used to think that I hated chalk. I couldn’t write well with it, and well– it frustrated me. I saw beautifully chalked boards in people’s homes and used to gaze with envy. If only I could learn how to chalk better! Then I recalled chalk pencils, I started using those instead and found […]

photo challenge: joy-inducing
September 1, 2015

It’s the first day of this month’s challenge. I’m so excited to see what everyone comes up with. I love shooting in the morning and that’s exactly what I did. I snapped today’s image around 830am, shortly before I left for work on my parent’s dreamy patio. We don’t have many warm mornings left! When […]

chintz petit during golden hour
August 31, 2015

Did you know I run a second, small business? It’s called Chintz Petit. I design and sew onesie dresses and skinny ties from vintage linens. I love working with my hands, anything vintage, and of course, babies! Since the weather has been so very lovely lately, and unusually reasonable for August in Minnesota, I decided […]

September photo challenge
August 30, 2015

I have long dreamed of hosting a photo challenge of my own. I’ve participated in a handful challenges over the past two years and each has been a positive experience. Some of my favorite, independent work has been as a result of getting outside of my box and having an assignment to complete each day. […]
