• Somerset Life publication!

     Well here it is, the Somerset Life Summer 2013 issue with my story and photography published! I almost forgot to blog about this ;)

    I'll be forever greatful to Somerset Life and Stampington.com for featuring me in this beautiful magazine!
    Everything about this magazine is so pretty, I am so honored to be amongst the artwork and artists they feature. I still don't quite believe it.

    I took photos of the page spreads, and if you should be looking to purchase your own copy, and can find it at Barnes and Noble bookstores or online here.

    All of the photography can be purchased as canvas, prints, pillows or phone cases from my ETSY shop - Vintage Chic Images.

  • Two of my favorite things- and an announcement!

     Two of my favorite things to shoot are flowers, and anything having to do with the beach, or ocean. If I can't be at the beach, then I can always take pictures of my enormous collection of shells and other beach related items. I guess that's the next best thing, though if I could live at the beach, I most definately would!
    I have a huge climbing rose bush with tiny little mini pink roses. They may be small, but the fragrance is out of this world!
    They too are done blooming like my peonies, but not before I cut a few bouquets to fill my house with their fragrance.

     This beautiful peony bouquet below was actually in a restroom at a restaurant. Yes I do take my camera everywhere! Don't tell anyone:)

     Lilacs from my yard this Spring. Glorious smell! This print is already available in my Etsy shop.

  • What's new?

     Summer is officially here now, and I'm loving the long daylight hours. But it does sort of confuse me, I find myself doing things at 9pm and thinking it's only about 6pm. How about you?
    I've been going through old photos taken months and months ago to get them edited and listed in my Etsy shop! I had to take advantage of the beautiful peonies blooming in my yard. They were gorgeous, but don't last nearly long enough.
    And by the way, I'm happy to announce I've passed my 500th sale there! I want to thank everyone that has bought a print, phone case or pillow from Vintage Chic Images!! Stay tuned for a special giveaway that will be happening in early July to celebrate!
    In the meantime, I'll leave you with a few of the latest images I'm finished with.
