Oh, I honestly wasn’t going to blog about my birthday.  I’m not very good with being the center of attention.  I haven’t had a birthday party (with more than family) since I was 10 at least.    Not even for my 30th.  It’s kind of hard when friends and family are all out of the area and/or across the country.   The past couple of birthdays have been very quiet and low-key which I like in most cases.  Well, I turned 34 on… Read more »

If Burberry isn’t fabulous enough on its own, they now have come out with a new makeup line!  I found this out scowering through the new July Issue of InStyle, (on page 32, to be exact).  The new line inlcudes lipsticks, blushes, shadows, foundation and mascara.  The packaging is much like the Burberry black plaid trench. Yes, please!   I have a love for all things print media,  paper products, branding,  advertising/product design…you name it.  I don’t have an actual  photo for you because… Read more »

Adam was such a trooper, sleeping or not!  Next time we will get his big sister Jena in for a few photos.  Erin you’re doing a wonderful job with your two little ones…and I give you so much credit for working full time.   I really hope you get to enjoy this time before you have to go back!   It was great getting to chat with you and catch up on life…even though we live so close, life does get in… Read more »

 A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to finally meet baby Adam and visit with his mom, my good friend Erin.   Adam is more than challenging Erin with his sleeping schedule : )  More to come this week!

Pier 1 has been a favorite of mine for years, but WEST ELM is quickly approaching the top of my fav list!  I’m loving the new Cooper Sofa and want it in my living room like, now!   The neutral color of the couch, with a casual throw and a few patterned pillows make the room.  I’ve also been eyeing up a rug from Peggy Wong of bluepoolroad.  She designs a stationary line as well as her new signature rug collection.   If you are… Read more »

Thank you Jasmine Star.  Watching and listening to Jasmine’s presentation at Escalate Live  was such a good decision.   Jasmine’s talk was on Social Media and the ins and outs of how to use it within  your photography business or any business for that matter.   Jasmine actually said this while answering a question after her talk was over.   “Give yourself permission to be you”.   This resonates with me big time.   Basically,  don’t care what other people think of you.  Do what you… Read more »

Hey guys! I feel like it’s been forever since I last blogged…but it’s only been 2 weeks!  Kenny comes home tomorrow from another week in San Antonio.  It’s starting to feel like home to him…and he goes back in June!  Job security…I like it.   Last time I was there, we had a fabulous time, if only for 2 days.   Hopefully we’ll get to go to Austin, “The live music capitol of the world”, the next time he’s headed out that… Read more »

So, I just received the new J. CREW catalog for May, and Hello, gorgeous!   The photo shoot was in Turks and Caicos and that place has the most amazing light and the color of the sand and ocean water are just to die for.  I mean, I DIE… literally, as Rachel Zoe would put it.   If this doesn’t make you want to go spend your paycheck at J. Crew I don’t know what will.   Thank you J. CREW for keeping my love… Read more »

Just in case you missed Briana’s blog post over at my old blog, here are a few photos. You can catch the full blog post over at http://www.marniestyle.blogspot.com. Sweet Briana.  

I was looking through some of my favorite black and white photos I’ve taken within the last year, and I love this one from Miami.  We had gone in to buy some gelato and I noticed the sign right away.  Very simple font and design.
