Some days I have to pinch myself for being so lucky to live and work in this artist filled town!   There is more inspiration to be found in Savannah, than time to execute the ideas that are generated from mingling with so many exceptional artists.  My friend Diana Daley represents one of these artists.  Not only does she have mad skills with her camera, she truly loves what she does with every fiber of her being, and it radiates through her photography.

So why did I want a maternity shoot?  Well…I may never do this again, so I better capture this time while it’s here…and let’s face it…pregnancy and the swollen feet and the extra 40 pounds and the morning sickness…and the mood swings…(you get the idea)  isn’t all that glamorous.  So to feel pretty for a day and celebrate the miracle that all this hard work is cooking up, is well worth it!  Thank you Diana for your professionalism, your friendship, and for these awesome photos!

One thing I love about Savannah are all the little hidden courtyards and carriage houses.  As if the houses on the street aren’t charming enough?!

Baby’s First Mural!

April 6, 2013

I’ve been absent, but with good reason!  We are expecting a little fella late summer, so life has taken on a new urgency if you will.  So many projects to tackle before his arrival.

Babys First Mural

One of which was finally updating my Dutch Island mural from many years ago.  (see here to refresh your memory.)  Naughty clients decided to remodel, trim down the mural a bit from one side and *gasp* tear a hole in the wall to put in double doors!  (it’s okay Meghan and Bill, I still love you!)

Beveled edges are so tricky!  Matching paint from 8 years ago, even trickier, but I think I successfully brought their waterfall back to life.

Mural Painted Doors

Oh and they had one more addition arrive in those 8 years, Sophie.  It wouldn’t be fair to leave her out of the mural…

Here’s a better shot at how she fits into the mix…

Waterfall Mural Dutch Island Georgia

Here’s a glimpse at the right side.  I added some embellishments to beef up the silhouette since a few feet had been trimmed on that side of the mural.  Sorry for the split shots, it’s impossible to be a shot of the full mural (roughly 20 feet wide)

For a better idea of the scale of things, take a look at the original mural.

Happy Spring y’all!

Finally took our new mountain bikes out for a spin at Skidaway Island State Park today.  It’s an easy ride for a beginner, a 3 mile loop with an observation tower overlooking the marsh.  Lots of beautiful old trees, marsh views, and even alligator ponds!

We only took a few photos, as we were having too much fun testing out the new bikes, but I’m sure we’ll be back.
