Kara’s daughter Vivian turned 3 in August. Her little party was beautiful, and Kara outdid herself again. I had the privilege of photographing it, and it just so happens our daughters are best pals. We are totally ok with that. Kara blogged the sweet details here.

Genevieve is 4. And obsessed with all things girly. So, naturally, she is obsessed with ballet. Latisha helped me curl her hair, and then we went out for a quick shoot to dance in the snow. It was just before Christmas, and the warm weather combined with the snow was perfect.

Troy Ohio Event Photographer 37 1024x682 A SuperHero Party

I have a love/hate relationship with planning my childeren’s birthday parties. I love to brainstorm, love to peruse Pinterest for ideas, love to craft the fun little details. I hate that there is never enough time, hate that all 3 of them have birthdays in the fall/early winter when I seem to be busiest trying to wrap up wedding season, and hate that I always seem to be doing too much at the last minute to truly enjoy the event. Isaac turned 7 in September, and Clark turned 4 in October. I normally try to throw their parties together (while they will still let me!) since they are only 7 weeks apart. This year the party got pushed back to November, but I was determined to still throw a fun fete. Better late than never, right? I and C are obsessed with SuperHeroes lately, and the party’s theme was never in doubt. But where to find the time and energy to pull it off?

Enter the real SuperHero of this story: Justine, of Worthington Wedding and Events. She was absolutely amazing. She did all the crafts, decorated the studio, planned games, and let me just have fun! icon smile A SuperHero Party Check out her blog post on the party here. If you are planning an event or wedding. please do yourself a favor and schedule a consultation. The woman will amaze you, I promise icon smile A SuperHero Party

Enjoy the pics, taken by Rachel icon smile A SuperHero Party

So as you know, I have been flying under the radar for about a month now… but not because I haven’t been working. Actually, exactly the opposite. I now know:  3 weeks with no sleep + 2 inspired (albeit a little bit crazy) people + 72 pages of our heart and soul= 1 Beautiful Magazine!

Ribbon 1024x662 It Is Here! The Curious Gift Wrapping Guide Has Launched!

Kara Garber and I have officially launched our first magazine together, and we are so excited about it!!! This guide is an idea that we have been tossing around for a few months. We wanted to give back to something important, and we have just the cause. Barb is an incredibly selfless woman, and she has financially taken orphans from Uganda under her wing with a small amount of resources and  a huge faith in God. We are giving part of the proceeds from every issue to the orphanage that Barb has built with her love and banana bread. Read her story here!

Globe 791x1024 It Is Here! The Curious Gift Wrapping Guide Has Launched!

 

We were also incredibly blessed to have the greatest contributors ever on our team. Andria Garber, Wakelight, Worthington Weddings & Events, Chartreuse Inc., and Barbara Boone. Such an inspiring group. Thank you guys, so much. You poured your heart out in each story, too.

The guide is a visual inspiration for wrapping gifts in a vintage and resourceful way without spending a fortune. You might be surprised how much you have lying around our home just waiting to top your gifts.

Enjoy our labor of love, and smile because somewhere across the world, a child can call a safe haven “home” on your part.

This year we got to be  a part of Troy Streets Alive in downtown Troy, Ohio.

It was so inspiring being surrounded by so many other artists of all kinds.

Each block was lined with painters, potters, musicians, and many more.

We got to meet lots of cool, new people; and give tours of our studio!

We so inspired that we couldn’t resist the chance to document this wonderful evening! Check it out!

I can’t believe my baby sister is a senior this year. She has grown up so much.

You can see her sweet personality and gentle heart shining in these photos, but don’t let that fool you.

She is the biggest troublemaker of the five of us. ; )

These photos were taken on our family’s properties. My Uncle Frank’s house with our favorite horse, Star;

and my Grandpa Fred’s old house where so many sweet memories were made.

This little beauty has been like my own little sister for over a decade now. Claire was only 6 when I met one of my dearest friends, Bri. And Claire was the sweet little sister that I have gotten to watch grow into the beautiful and talented, charming and thoughtful, smart and considerate  young lady you see below. I love you Claire. And I am so proud of all the things that you have already accomplished: I know it is only the beginning.
