As the middle child of my large family, Susie, definitely tries to stand out from the rest. She is a biking enthusiast (owning the cutest shop selling up-cycled bicycle jewelry), an outdoorsy gal, and most of all, a free spirit. She and her fiancé, Clayton, brought me to this abandoned sheep field - the same place that he proposed to her a few months ago - so I could capture their playful romance.
So, I decided to put my design skills to the test and entered a local t-shirt design contest. I'm nervous because there are some awesome entries alongside mine, but here's hoping I win!
Feel free to vote here for my design - it's the "Radio Blast" - Thank you for all your love and support in my design work! Everyday I'm achieving more than I thought was possible and I couldn't have done it on my own :)
Friday was the unexpected start of an early weekend. I had to take off work because it snowed in Louisiana! Well, not exactly snowed, there was sleet everywhere and the roads weren't a safe place. We stayed in our warm home mostly, and when we were desperate to get out, ran around on the frozen ground as if we were ice skaters.
This Sunday I took my sister's engagement pictures - amazingly the weather warmed up to the mid-sxities. I had a lot of fun capturing their fun together and can't wait to upload the pictures!
When working with clients there's many different processes used to pinpoint the exact design to show off their business or event. I worked with Pippa Marx Studio in making a logo for her Etsy shop and this is the process I used.
Next I designed a variety of looks for her to choose from. She loved many different styles and would ask me to tweak certain ones here and there. I loved exploring the variety while maintaining a theme. She ended up settling for one modern logo and one vintage looking logo to use for different products.
I have been swamped with work for what feels like forever! I'm so happy for the extra work, I am even more thrilled to have finished my first big project.
So, now that I'm engaged (still pinching myself over that) I've been trying to figure out what to do for my wedding. Both Ryan and I are divorced, and we've both done the traditional wedding, so I wanted to do something different.
Now "Eloping" evokes a sense of surprise and adventure, but unfortunately I'm a planner...so this is a mix of the private, intimate and adventurous nature of an elopement but with the time to save and plan of a wedding. We are aiming for the late spring of 2015, and our location is Colorado (most likely Colorado Springs). There's something dreamy about the rustic mountains as the backdrop and just us exchanging vows with a few witnesses and then running off to a cabin or teepee!
