letterpress giveaway!

Well, I didn't post this earlier this month like I wanted to, but better late than never, right?

One lucky winner will receive this "Live What You Love" print from our favorite letterpress artist, Hijiri. Our house is filled with letterpress goodies from her, and she is even making something for the baby's room!

This "Live What You Love" print is 8x10 inches, letterpressed by hand using vintage wood type blocks on 100lb, 100% cotton Lettra Pearl White paper with soy-based hand mixed light yellow-green ink, which means it is environmentally friendly. The print is hand numbered on the back. And, word on the street is that green-yellow (or "grellow") is the hot new color for interior design.

To win this print, all you have to do is leave a comment in the comment section of this blog post telling me how you live what you love. One winner will be chosen on Friday, September 3, 2010.

DISCLAIMER: The frame is not included. (I borrowed it from the baby's nursery just so I could photograph the print in a frame.) If you like the white frame and want to purchase one of your own, you can grab one here.

The Butler Family

Remember this little peanut? The last time Reagan made an appearance on my blog was when she was just 6 days old. Now she's 6 months old and full of personality!

I love when parents trust me with their little ones. She's precious.

I know you all remember Reagan's big sister, Addison! Yep, she is still as cute as can be.


This is one of my favorites from the day. Addison clearly loves her little sister!

And last but not least, a fun shot of the whole family. This makes my heart smile BIG.

Butler family, I am pretty sure you guys get cuter every time I see you. I'm looking forward to watching the girls grow!

Ariane + Brian

Oh hi, fabulous shoes. (I'm starting things off a little bit different, but can you blame me? Ariane's shoes are HOT!) Swoon.

Even though we were shooting in the morning, it was hot, hot, hot, so we tried to stay in the shade. Ariane, you are beautiful.

Meet all the lovely ladies.

The flower girl cracked me up all day!


Meet Brian.

When the guys found out that we had access to the golf carts, they pretty much took them and ran. I'm glad they did -- it made for some great photos!

Handsome guys.

Ariane chose to enter the ceremony at Valle Vista on a horse drawn carriage. I love this private moment that Ken captured.

Ariane's dad lost it going down the aisle with her. What an emotional time.

Brian's reaction to seeing Ariane for the first time that day. Ken is so great at capturing these moments! Since I can't be in two places at once, I don't know what I'd do without him.


The new Mr. & Mrs.!

After the ceremony, we took a few minutes and grabbed some relaxed portraits.

Of course we had to get one with the golf cart.

I love everything about this photo!

Another favorite.

This is definitely one of my all time favorite first dance photos.

You know what they say...a photo is worth a million words!

Ariane and Brian, we had so much fun spending your wedding day with you. We wish you a lifetime of love, laughter, and happiness!

Heather + Justin

I have known Justin for a loooooong time and I have never seen him happier. (Don't tell him I said that, though. He has an image to maintain.) Here are a few of my favorite images from Heather and Justin's session in downtown Greenfield, Indiana.

Heather, you are gorgeous.


Can't wait to shoot you guys again!!!
