Girl Power……we believe!!!!

So…..many of you know that I bought a little house to turn into a studio.  I still do mostly on location outdoor photography……but I did need a place to shoot babies, and  little sessions….and I guess I forgot how much I used to enjoy studio shooting, because it’s been fun.  Anyway……I prepped a room to shoot in….and a little reception area…but I needed a dressing room…and a spot for clients to fix hair…makeup….or just look at themselves in a mirror.  The tiny bathroom just wasn’t going to cut it.  And I have literally almost no budget for this type of thing….so I went to Lowes to wander around and come up with ideas.   So I thought…….I’ll buy a vanity light fixture and wire it with a lamp wiring kit so I can plug it into the wall since I have no wiring in my walls….and that is something I haven’t yet attempted.   So…….I did it………..I bought a light fixture…..and a wiring kit…..studio-1 copyweb

And trust me……I definitely used the instructions on this one…..

And then after everything reassembled…….I plugged it in.  It works!!! studio-6 copyweb

Then off to the studio………I hung a mirror I already had, and bought a shelf and some brackets……paired with a $10 stool from Goodwill……..so for about $55……..a makeup area for my clients….yay!studio-14 copyweb

And while we are at the studio you might as well see where the magic happens…..lol…. studio-17 copyweb

Happy Valentines Day!!!

Really, I’m terrible at getting stuff done, always at the last minute.  And I really don’t care anything about Valentines Day, but this year I thought it might be cute to make cards with my girls on them.  So, I coaxed Sydney into taking some pictures tonight.  Parker wasn’t game……I wonder what I can bribe her with tomorrow………..maybe some heart candies…..or chocolate….hmmmmm………This first picture is her wearing a fascinator that her aunt helped her make…….

Here’s my girl!  LOL can you tell she’s really into it?  It was her idea to put the hearts all around her on the floor.  Me thinks I may have a future assistant……..I wonder if she works for food……….

I love this heart cookie cutter shot…..now if my poor children could get their sweet tooth deprived mother to make some cookies with that…..they would be sooo happy……….albeit a little hyper………..

This last shot is Sydney’s favorite.
