Paint The Stars Photography || Valentines Day Shoot

We all have that friend that when you get together, a “quick” visit does not exist. When you add hot coffee, french toast sticks and lots of raw real life talk filled with struggles and accomplishments, a simple play date turns into half your day- literally. That is the case with my sweet friend Amanda who is the talented woman behind Paint The Stars Photography.

Every time is say “oooh this photo is my favorite, you’ve out done yourself”, she turns around and blows me away with her next shoot!

Now, it’s my go to “search engine” for ideas, projects, and to get my creative juices flowing! Now that I’ve finally established a blog, seems only right to post it!

For this nursery, I knew that I wanted a simple, yet glamorous feel that could grow into a toddler room. My vision were pearls, crystals, gray and satin baby pink.

What is “Raising Little Lub’s”?

What is “Raising Little Lubs”?

Every time I come across a blog, and I (obviously) see their blog name, I think to myself what does it mean. It’s got to have a personal meaning, enough to give it a name. You name your children, dog, blog… yea you get it, it’s pretty important and needs careful consideration.
