Great Inspirational Quotes

There is a site my friend Sarah put me onto that has great weekly inspirational quotes with the prettiest backgrounds. I always look forward to the new ones and they become my desktop background.

They are published every Wednesday and I’ve included two recent favorites in this post.

Tallulah the Pekingese

Last week I had a fun time photographing Tallulah, an adorable Pekingese. I found Tallulah through Uberdog in West Hartford where she loves hanging out 🙂 She is a mellow gal and I loved getting to know her and her parents.

A big tongue for such a small pooch!

She’s had this bone since she was a wee little one and loves tearing after it and pouncing…very cute 🙂

My favorite.

Thanks again!

Guest Books!

I wanted to show some photos of an item I LOVE today – custom designed guest books filled with photos from your engagement photo shoot. They are a great way to showcase the photos of you and also end up with an end product you actually want to look at again…instead of stick in a closet 🙂

They come in a variety of different sizes (most popular are 8×8 and 10×10) and can be totally customized inside and out.

Here are a few images of various guestbooks from this year and last

The pages lay flat for easy signing!

New Day Animal Rescue

I recently started volunteering for the New Day Animal Rescue. Every few weeks dogs come up from shelters in Tennessee to find homes in this area. Today was an adoption event so most of the dogs were being matched up with their forever homes. I also photographed a few cuties who are still looking….
