About Me

I am an artist, primarily in photography. I live in San Francisco and love photographing all throughout the Bay Area. I love the unique details of people. I love capturing relationship. I love capturing the many facets and personalities of each person in front of my camera. I also love buying cheap furniture and re-doing it. I love fabric, but I am a very mediocre seamstress (I try!) However, I mostly love grabbing a cup of coffee with a friend and enjoying laughter, tears and life. I would rather do art alongside of people because that means relationship!
Thank you for stopping by!

New Bedroom

I have been selling off all our old bedroom stuff and redoing the whole room! It came out better than I imagined! I used Royal Design Studios for the stencil on the focal wall in Navy Blue. Pretty much everything in this room is stealing from my fav blogs. I got the stencil idea and even color from Vintage Revivals. And I found the Pallet bed on Pinterest but now I can’t find the link!!
And I love all the stuff from Adri at Dream Book Design.

Oh and I always forget to take pics before hand, but it was different, and now it looks like this. How is that for a before!
Here is how it looks when you walk in:

I got this lamp at good will and did the ruffle to the shade and spray painted it navy blue.

I bought these two side tables for 5 bucks each at separate good wills and they both had the awesome yellow fabric behind them. I sprayed the bases with Krylon classic grey and the handles with the Navy blue.

Then I made this starburst mirror with skewers you would use for shish-kabobs and used acid to eat the back of the mirror for the vintage look. You can read about that on Vintage revivals too. Thats why no tutorials, she rocks and does it all for you!!!

And this chandelier was the ugliest gold chandelier with a big glass shade on it from good will. I spray painted it black and hot glued those cheap plastic beads on it and added the vintage shade I got from a cool store called Cucumberz downtown. 10 for the chandelier, 2 for the beads and 12 for the shade:) Pretty cheap huh

This is a really great buffet I got for 20 at goodwill and I stained it, used paintable wallpaper on the doors and put awesome Anthro knobs on there.

And then this dresser, OH IT IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES!!! I got it at a garage sale and it is from 1920 and is in perfect condition. The original knobs were not on it, and the ones on there are ok. I am searching ebay for some cast iron ones that would be more like the originals!

Then the bed, last but not least was 100% free!!! It is all pallets. Pallets as the platform, and I cut up a bunch of other ones and put them on plywood we had in our garage, put some posts on the back and drilled it to the wall!! I love it!

The G Family

I love photographing my friends:) The Guard’s have had a beautiful story of growing their family. Griffin came home through adoption last year and now after a long time of waiting for the Lord to open their womb they are expecting their second!

Micah M

I met Micah’s parents in Croatia on a mission trip. They were the interns for the summer and my husband and I were co-leading a group of college students on a 10 day trip to work with Croatian students. Ben and Maggie were so fun and crazy and brought such life to the whole experience, and they were engaged!! How can you not go and take engagement photos when you are in a foreign beautiful country! We did the photos in an old Castle right by where we were staying. SERIOUSLY who gets to say they had their engagement pics done in a castle…unless you are really rich.
ANNNNDDDD I cannot find those pics, which makes me so sad…
Soon after we were home they were married and I got to capture that whole party as well. It was intimate and beautiful in Maggie’s parents backyard. Their wedding crew was just as fun as them:

And now they just had their first beautiful baby boy Micah.
