Evernotes Every Friday

Last month I did a different spin on the weekly Evernotes Every post… instead of posting 5 things (designs, photos, recipes) that I saved that week, I posted 5 design projects that I was personally working on the time. It was a fun break to post something like that but it also helped with the lack of time to gather an Evernotes post.

So here we are, 5 weeks later and I must try that again! Hope you like getting this glimpse into the multi-tasking my brain is doing right now! Eeek! And in addition to three designs I am working, I am going to show you sneak peek into two photo shoots I just did! How stinking fun to add these to my list! I am seriously so blessed everyday to get to do what I love! Beyond blessed!

1. Womens’ Retreat

This past week I created posters and flyers for our church’s upcoming Womens’ Retreat. I love working on girly stuff! It’s a rare occasion for me!


2. VBS: Kingdom Rock

Another rare project is getting to work on something for kids! And this is another project for my church, using the graphics from Group… if you have kids ages Pre-K thru 5th grade, bring them to VBS at our church this summer! Register here.

3. Bear Illustrations

This is a super new project that is just getting started, lots of kinks to work out but this is just one iteration of an illustrated bear. No more details to share with you yet. 🙂


4. CSUF Seniors: Ali and Amy

These girls may have been the funniest and most fun to take photos of. I don’t think I have ever laughed so hard behind the camera. I promise there’s more “portrait-like” photos of these two, but I thought this photo captured our shoot so perfectly and truly captures the excitement of graduating college! It was a great photo to close out our evening of shooting in downtown Fullerton last weekend.


5. CSUSM Senior: Kristie

Just this past Wednesday night I took another college senior’s portraits but this time for a long time friend, practically a sister, Kristie. You will be seeing quite a bit of Kris this year as she is my best friend Amie’s sister (you’ve actually already seen here in Another Year of Babies, Brides, and BBQ) and will be standing right next to me in the upcoming Pankratz wedding. But having known this young little miss practically her whole life, I am not going to lie, I misted up at least once taking her photos! And I am so excited to show you the rest!


Lauren & Kellen’s Outdoor Woodsy Wedding Invitations and Decor


Lauren and I started planning her wedding almost a year before they got engaged. Just because we knew it was coming and we wanted to be ready! So once it became official, Lauren knocked down her list of “to-do’s” in lightening speed.

Within a few months, because of their mutual love of baseball, they took their engagement photos at Angels’ Stadium which inspired their Save the Date
game tickets.

But their actual wedding was themed to camping, the great outdoor woods, and bright sunny sunflowers—and the Oak Canyon Nature Center was the perfect location to host their I-do’s.

Lauren likes to keep things simple so when she presented me with her wedding invitation ideas, they came together pretty easily. I just loved working on her invites! From their arrow through the heart monogram to the twine wrapped invitation suite to that wooden texture paper.

Such a dream!


Her invitations came with a map, a registry card, and a RSVP postcard… which you got a sneak peek at last fall.






These next photos—and the first one in this post—are all from All Aboard Studios from the day of the wedding.

They were so much fun to be with throughout the day… Ebony and I have known each other since middle school and you would all know her second shooter Courtney from her maternity photos with me and of course her handsome little Jameson!

See a few more photos from Ebony on their website and their adorable video from Tom!


Lauren’s florist was Kim Ryan from Tulips, Trophies and Treasures. The same florist I had—Amie is using her too—so I just knew every piece of decor was going to be beautiful down to the smallest detail. She really took Lauren’s dream wedding ideas and ran with it.



Such a unique guest book idea!




It was such a fun wedding! We danced and danced and danced all night long, celebrating the brand new Mr. and Mrs… just looking back through their photos made me smile and so happy for them all over again!

Thanks for allowing me to help you throughout the wedding process “Yoyo!” I definitely miss our craft nights! 🙂
