AH!!! What a year!! It’s amazing all the things that flood my mind when I think about this year and all the amazing people I have had the pleasure of meeting..and some of you becoming friends, along with the many images I’ve been blessed to capture and create. It’s been such a blessing to have had the honor of capturing milestones, to witness vows of eternal love, to run after littles just to capture their sweet smiles, to capture moments of mom and dad…alone…and remind them that they’re the reason their family exists, to capture the glow of an expectant mother, to witness the joy of new life and capture the way mom and dad gaze with amazement at their new little miracle….all the giggles, the smiles, the endearing glances, the warm embraces, the passion, and joy is why I do what I do. From the beginning, my friends and family have been my BIGGEST (and sometimes loudest 😉 ) supporters and fans. They have allowed me to
use borrow them for what ever it is I have needed…everything from giving me opinions on branding and logos (sorry!), to surprising me with equipment, to modeling out in the snow…sometimes half naked in the snow …annnnnd sometimes maybe pregnant and half naked in the snow….what?!? ha! (ok, So, maybe I owe more to some of you than others! haha.) All to say, I’m blessed to call my self your photographer and honored that you would trust me with telling your stories. So, to thank you for all your trust and support throughout the years…we will be giving away our annual Portrait Session, along with some other fun stuff! eeeee!!! I’m SO thrilled about these! Ok, here we go:
I’m excited to include a few local vendors…don’t be discouraged if you’re out of town, we can ship it to you!
Since I’m a mom, bags are something of an obsession for me. (Yes, I just blamed that on Parenthood. haha!) What better bag to use as a “catch all” or this tote is the perfect size for groceries, laundry products or hauling holiday gifts and goodies. It does double-duty in the pantry or linen closet for all your storage needs. Cool, right?!

If you are a client, than you probably know I love my Dove chocolates! Between the yumminess and the little sayings inside their wrappers, I’m hooked. I blame my Best Friend, Brenda, for this one…she introduced us..”Dove, meet Cat, Cat meet Dove.” The affair hasn’t ended…*sigh* So, it just seemed fitting to have a little something “Dove” to add~and this is perfect for New Year’s Eve, too! Our family loves some fondue! (milk chocolate will be included)
Their words: Made by Chantal®, our sleek white goes-with-anything ceramic fondue pot holds a generous 3 cups and sits on its own stainless steel stand. Just melt some of your favorite DCD chocolate, put out a platter of fruit, mini-brownies, cookies, you-name-it and watch the party pick up! (Sightings of bacon and gummy worms have been reported.) Set includes 4 stainless steel forks and tea light candle. All are dishwasher-safe. Fondue pot oven- and microwave-safe.

This is something dear to my heart~ as you may know, I love businesses who give back. It’s one think to talk the talk, but are they walking it out? (sorry, heavy stuff there..ha!) Here’s a company you’ll feel good about purchasing from, as it’s a fair trade company and they believe in doing something globally…click on the link to read more about it!
Organica Rope Necklace
Acai beads in natural hues twist delicately for a necklace that can be doubled or tripled.
This piece is handcrafted of sustainable seeds by artisans in Ecuador. It takes 3 months for the seed to become a bead. The artisans have been able to rise out of poverty and now employ other community members with the same vision!
