I've felt very inspired these past few weeks and have set my eyes on accomplishing quite a few DIY projects.  I've been especially stoked about this one specifically as one I haven't painted in months and two it is for my darling cousin who is going to have her little baby girl any moment!!  I am so excited for Sarah and the arrival of her little girl Allison!!

When I found out she was pregnant I knew right away I wanted to paint a picture for her nursery.  I didn't know what though until I heard what the theme is...under the sea! Love it! Hence the cute seahorse which happens to be her favorite creature of the bunch. I loved painting this and can't wait for you to scroll down and see the final product!

Here's a look at my latest art project!!

If you'd like a painting from me, send me an email to inquire about prices! I'd love to paint for you!

Painted Pots and Succulents

One of the things that I've always wanted is my own succulent collection.  I adore these cute little plants, seriously they are adorable.  This week I purchased my first few, the beginning of my succulent collection.  I plan on making my own terrarium, but in the meantime I decided to plant the extras in individual pots to spruce up my home office space.  I found the paint and pots remarkable cheap at Michaels Arts & Craft store.  What better way to beautify these terracotta pots than to add little touches of gold.  I saw this idea on pinterest and decided to try it for myself. Super simple way to add some vibrancy and design while still maintaining the natural look. I love how they turned out!

Caleb + Elizabeth | Engagement

Caleb + Elizabeth: West Linn Engagement 

I LOVE when my couples decide to do something a little different for their engagement session! When Elizabeth and I met over some delicious coffee at The Place to be Cafe my face lit up when she mentioned the idea of doing a paint fight during their shoot. A paint fight is a great solution for couples who want to showcase their playful side. 
I am so excited to show off my favorites from this session!! This couple is effortlessly amazing and hilarious.  It's obvious to see they are crazy about each other, and I'm excited for these two as they approach their next great adventure of marriage this fall. Congrats you two!

 All bets were off after the first paint flew through the air.  What started as an innocent "let's make a romantic memory" quickly turned into a full-scale paint war. The colors are just amazing.  Love these
