BABY ELISABETH ANNOUNCEMENT DESIGN

I was really excited to see Julie’s request in my inbox for her baby girls announcement. She sent me all the photos and some inspiration direction. She was looking for a modern theme, with a front & back design. I couldn’t wait to get started on the design, she is the cutest baby girl. Plus there is something exiting about creating designs for friends. The fact that Julie snaps awesome photos of her babies, definitely helped the design process. She is a talented photographer and I love working on designs like that. Isn’t she a beautiful baby??

My main website is going through a redesign at the moment. Once its done, they will be posted in my portfolio page.

I do hope to explore more with wedding invite packages. This is a custom design, with the theme of Wine, grape vines, some fall colors with deep purple accents. My friend sent me her inspiration for her fall wedding.




LIVE WHAT YOU LOVE

Everyone needs a little inspiration. Check out WLWL
Here is a really inspirational online magazine that shares everything you like and love. What more inspiration could you ask for?? I love the concept behind the magazine – like what you love & share what you like. That is such a great reminder for everyday living, I thought so.

The main reasons why I share is to inspire. On the blog I try to share things that I think you would love, including creative inspiration for everyone. Sharing new things, inspiration, and creative ideas for the blogging community. I guess Im passionate about sharing inspiration. As well as receiving inspiration from others. Kinda cool right!?! Do you have inspiration you’re dying to share?? Comment up, I would love to see some inspiration being shared.

LIVE WIDE LOVE DEEP

A Brand is being born and here is a special glimpse from the behind the scenes process at the screen printer and starting a brand. I loved seeing the setup and watching the process in the shop. There is something to be said about watching a design come to life and witnessing what it takes to make it happen, even if it is only a t-shirt.

In the very early stages of big dreams to come, it starts with a dream and design. I’ve been fortunate enough to be brought a board on a large-scale project. Shaping its existence, I couldn’t be anymore happier watching this brand grow.

When things get designed or ideas come to life, sometimes there is so much meaning behind the creation. It’s straight from the heart of the creator. So a lot of times that’s the reason why it’s being created, it has a remarkable story.

Live your life wide open, love with all your heart. A strong prescription for everyone to take daily. What do you think of the shirts and the meaning?? Love to hear your comments. I know that’s not a lot of detail, there will be more upcoming posts. Stay tuned.



PHOTO OF THE DAY / THE SKY IS THE LIMIT

Big talk about Chrysler’s commercial during the super bowl. This advertisement literally came out of nowhere. The cinematography in the commercial is very well done, which leads me to this post for photo Friday. I took this photo right at sunset with the sun reflecting off the Ren Cen building. This picture kinda reminded me of one of the shots in the commercial because of the location. Without re-hashing all the comments and views over the commercial I think my friend Josh said it best in his blog READ HERE

FROM URBAN PHOTOGRAPHY TO WILDLIFE

This winter has shown great opportunity for wildlife photography. I’ve went from shooting urban city life to wildlife. haha So far we have been able to photograph a ton of American Bald Eagles. They are quite the challenge to photograph and very exciting to capture. I’m really amazed by the number of eagles in one location. They hang out at the lock and dams along the Mississippi river. Hope you enjoy the photos.

Dinner to go!
