the magical world of the interwebs

do you like my fancy {for me} photo collages of my april event?  i'm showing off a wee bit and that's what happens when i'm excited.  lore patterson from bainbridge island, wa {she so deserves this shout-out} heard my tech-challenged cry via twitter and was kind enough to send me a life preserver called pic monkey.  god bless her. am i the last person to find out about this brilliant site?  have y'all been holding out on me?

about the flowers...they were for an aerie for american eagle outfitters event at studio 450, with a 7am load-in {BIG UP team kat flower!}.  the client literally googled white and green flowers and printed out their selects for our meeting.  they made three requests -- hydrangea, lotus pods and it can't look like a wedding.  i was pretty excited to work with the palette because it screamed spring and i planned on going crazy with spirea, hellebore and ferns.  true confession: when an element is in season, i like to use it a lot, almost to the point of ennui.  not sure which made my heart race more, the double hellebore or the spirea...might be a tie.   

i can't close out this post without acknowledging the amazing anne robert, photographer extraordinaire.  anne is clutch in the truest sense of the word.  on more than one occasion, she has come through for me at the very last minute, fancy camera gear in tow to shoot beautiful images of my work.  check out more of her work here.  get into her brides, parents, everyone and book her.  she's talented and a love.  for serious.  

generosity and niceness is all around and for that and many other reasons, i remain grateful.
