What do you give a Photographer?

On her birthday....

Here are a few of my FAVORITE things! In truth, these gifts would make AWESOME Mother's day gifts for anyone... they are not just for a  "photographer" - but they are handmade all crafted with love by small business owners and that means a TON to me! I LOVE supporting other small business and having a direct effect on someone's daily life! Now... on to the goods!

An infinity scarf, because I cant be bothered to keep a really one out of my way while I am shooting!
This yarn by the way - was THE SOFTEST! It was snuggly warm... yes I tried it on - I had to see how it should look after all!

 Who says I don't get in front of the camera?! I had the EXTREME pleasure of working with Melli's items a few weeks ago and I FELL in LOVE! These wrist warmers not only are fun and super cute, but they allow for me to use them and my camera at the same time. (even the remote that I used to take this shot!)

OH OH OH! This one was such a hard secret to keep! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this new product, released by A Bow for Mama! Now, instead of giving a bow on top of a special gift that is disposable - I can give a FABRIC clip! That can be RE-USED! It has 2 clips, one in back and one in front (great for holding a gift tag). PLUS these little gems by A Bow for Mama, are not just for gift decor... oh no! You can use them on your pin board, or all kinds of other things as I discovered during my shoot!

I can not get enough of my Zeeuh bag, wallet and mug hugs! I want a whole new set for the summer!!!! Yes, I desire to be the envy of all my friends! I absolutely love Alicia's choice in fabrics and quality of work! If your looking to spoil someone you love (like your MOM! or ME!) this will do it!  (by the way... I am feeling the fiesta floral hint hint)

You know who else I really started to bond with recently... Tanya at Mystic Eye! I know I just told you all about her on Monday... but she deserves a big shout out for the sexiest wine stopper/pour spout I have seen in a long while! COME ONE! I would love (and get a lot of use) out of this bad boy! The option with the cork screw is no slouch either! I LOVE them both!

Happy Birthday to me!


  1. You're so sweet! I will admit, I giggled when you said you tried it on! I really do try to pick the softest yarns possible when making my items :D
    Everyone else's photos are epic! The items are wonderful too :D

  2. What great gift ideas.. I love the wrist warmers.. perfect for those cold days when you are out taking pictures.

  3. Aw, thank you so much for such a stellar compliment! You are very sweet! Hope you are having a wonderful birthday week! :)

    1. Thanks! It's been great! I don't say things I don't mean - ask anyone! If you want an opinion I have one! Just be careful you want to hear it! Lol! That however, works out rather well for people I like and products I LOVE! :)

  4. Looks like a wonderful birthday! :)
