I would be a liar if I said it was completely done, but it's so close that I it isn't noticeable in pictures so I thought it was time to share. My second floor bathroom used to be my least favorite room in my house. The tile was a multi-colored blue and the walls a slightly duller version of the tile..it was just not working out... SO I did a few things with the help of my Dad and it looks so so much better!
- Got Miracle Methods to come and coat my tile with their magic formula to white..this is an awesome option if you don't want to rip up tile and the best part..it seals your grout lines permanently so it is really easy to clean.
- Instead of ripping up my tile around my bathroom sink and shower, we tiled over it with white subway tile and added a marble trip piece to cap it off, I really like that combination!
- Painted the walls yellow/green and put up bead board half way up the walls.
- Found a new mirror (it used to be a frame from an old church but we made it into a mirror), two vintage medicine cabinets (love) and a thrifted gold mirror too.
- I made my towel rack with a piece of wood and some hooks..very simple.
- Found an old casted dragon in my Grandma's basement and welded it into a towel holder.
- For the light fixture, I used three old lamps and my Dad helped me wire them into one fixture which I think is awesome since it looks really unique.
- I glued mirror to my cabinets and then framed them out with trim and got new knobs.
- I put up one of my knick knack shelves..don't know why I love them so much..
- astly, I got casted (mold resistant) wallpaper to look like tin ceiling and my Dad helped me last week to put it up..very much more cost effective than the real stuff!
Have a beautiful day!
We may have ended the session with frozen fingers, but it wasn't due to the lack of warmth between these two people. Since they booked over the phone, the Audubon Park was the first place we all actually got to meet. Right away I felt an ease with them, I loved Brittany's choice to wear a red dress (especially in March with everything not quite blooming and still frosted from winter) and I could tell they had so much respect for one another. When I asked them what they love about their relationship, they both said they appreciated the other's loyalty. We started off our session with a little something to keep them warm, my favorite, tea by the water.
It's not too often I get the request to capture cat families, but when Kristin & Harmon invited me to their home to start their session with their five (yes, five) kitties, I was in for the adventure. These two have a unique kind of love and style that makes them so much fun to hang out with. Anytime a couple is comfortable with each other, it makes my job so easy..they laugh like I'm not there and don't shy away from snuggling up in front of the camera. I was expecting the cats, but what I didn't know was Kristin had set up an whole studio for us to shoot in their basement-eccentric and very them..and it was perfect. The more you get into personalizing your session, the more comfortable you are and the more personal the images feel.
