I found a fabulous facebook business page a couple of months ago and fell in love! I`m a sucker for prints and sayings. They design and create elegant, unique and stylish WALL ART PRINT. I recently received my first print from May and Belle.
I couldn`t flip it for some reason, but it says `how sweet it is to be loved by you`
The first time I saw this I immediately wanted it for my bedroom. I wanted to put up wedding pictures of me and my husband, but wanted to make a special spot for us. I have these beautiful gold frames that we got for our wedding. I also had this long black frame with wedding pictures in it that has been sitting in storage for half a year. The black didn`t look right, so I dug up my red paint and got to work!
After the paint dried I laid all of my pictures on the floor and rearranged for half an hour before deciding on placement.
This is what it looks like on my wall!
I decided I need to pay more attention to this space. We were sleeping on a mattress on the floor for five months before getting a bed frame (our old one broke). We bought a nice king bed, night stand, curtains, still need to get the dresser….but I told my husband, while laughing a bit, that I now feel a little more like a grown up! And now pictures are hung! I can`t wait for my husband to see it.
Now all I need is a long skinny frame, like the one I painted red, to go along under all the frames. That way when you first look at it, it will look like a red letter `L`. I will save that for next week!
I had a product shoot with Claudine Lavoie Photographgy on November 27th. I had been looking forward to this day for months.
It was an amazing day! First off, this was my first time in Claudine’s studio. It is a very nice space. Full of windows and openess. My favorite thing was the exposed brick wall under the row of windows. I brought my camera there in hopes of getting some “behind the scenes” pictures of the kids getting ready and Claudine doing her thing, but it all went so fast I never even pulled it out of my bag.
Before this I had different ideas in my head on what to expect from the kids, I already knew Claudine would be great. There were 7 girls under the age of 7. The youngest being 4 months old! There was my 2 daughters, Claudine’s daughter and my 4 nieces. They were all exceptional…the odd cry now and then< most coming from my 21 month old daughter! I knew it could have went one of two ways, they all have a blast and its a joyful shoot, or they are all miserable and I would be pulling my hair out. Thankfully it was the first. The girls were all very well behaved.
Claudine hired a beautiful young ballerina to be in the pictures. She was wonderful. With her was her mom and dance teacher. They were all very nice. Miss ballerina had brought with her 3 of the most beautiful ballet dresses/tutus I have seen. She did her proper poses while all the little ones admired her. I know my 4 year old and some of the other girls were so excited to meet a REAL ballerina! (I was too;)
I haven’t seen all of the pictures yet, but Claudine was super quick on a couple of them. And here they are!!!
If you Love Claudine’s work as much as I do you can go to her facebook page and show her some love by liking her page! ~Claudine Lavoie Photography~
