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.

i know that it is hot.. so hot. and i know that this past winter we were so ready for this weather. but it seems when it hits 95 degrees, we are driven indoors just like when it is 5 degrees. so  i had to share this beautiful engagement session with you today, maybe it will cool you off a little icon smile Walking in a Winter wonderland Dayton, Ohio Engagement and Wedding Photographer

this shoot was loosely themed after a beautiful Winter song that we know well. we often sing it with Christmas carols, but it is more winter than Christmas.

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?

In the lane, snow is glistening

A beautiful sight,

We’re happy tonight.

Walking in a winter wonderland.

In the meadow we can build a snowman,

Then pretend that he is Parson Brown.

We’ll say: “No man,

But you can do the job when you’re in town.”
