7 Tips for Decorating a Harry Potter Nursery

I agonized over a nursery theme for our youngest daughter. My Google history is filled with “cool nursery theme” or “geeky nursery ideas” and “unique nursery decor”. Nothing really clicked for me until I stumbled across Buzzfeed’s 20 DIY Pop Culture Themes for your Nursery. Ta-da! That’s it! My husband and I have loved Harry Potter […]

Sneak Peek of my New Photography Studio

I’ve been spending my “maternity leave” hard at work, building my dream newborn photography studio. So exciting!  Incidentally, I totally recommend marrying a woodworker if you have the opportunity.  

Prints Matter

A recent slideshow client has perfectly illustrated why it’s so important to get prints of your portraits.  Among the digital files she sent for the show were some gorgeous professional photos.  We are talking truly beautiful images of her child as a newborn.  The files were very small and pixelated, though, so I assumed she […]

You may remember this little cutie from Olivia’s First Day!  Here is a montage of Olivia’s official newborn photos, a birthday gift for her mother.  The photos were taken by the awesome Hannah Voermans of Morning Light Photography in Minneapolis.

Capture Moments, Don’t Manufacture Them

I try very hard to get photos of my daughter with all of her extended family members, since we only see them a few times a year.  We are a very baby-centric group, and people’s faces just light up when they finally get to hold her.  Invariably, though, the first thing they do once they […]

Showdown: Auto-Fill Wizards vs. Custom Design, Album Edition

“Sure, you can do it yourself – but will you?” I remember seeing that sign at a craft fair years ago and thinking how effective it was.  Etsy is packed with projects that many of us probably could put together if we tried.  We are often paying for someone else’s time and willingness to actually […]

In Memorium – Lawrence Feyereisen

This is a memorial montage for Lawrence Joseph Feyereisen, a father, grandfather, farmer, businessman, and storyteller.  His legacy includes a wife, 9 children, 14 grandchildren, and 15 great-grandchildren. He is greatly missed.

Genuine Excitement for a Big, Fake Wedding

I am super excited to announce that I’ve been chosen as a vendor for the New England Big Fake Wedding!  Instead of a usual wedding fair, it’s actually a mock wedding.  A bride and groom renew their vows during the ceremony, and all the vendors actually perform their usual roles.  The “guests” are future brides […]
