Reagan - 6 Months

This little lady is just darling! I can hardly stand her sweet little smiles and giggles and grins. It took her awhile to 'warm up' during our photo shoot...she kept looking at us like 'what in the world is going on?' But we did manage to get some great pictures of her!
I love it when I am asked back to take pictures of the stages of someone's life, especially children. They grow and change so much and it's so very important to catch those memories. We took her newborn photos back in March and her mama called me to schedule Reagan's 6 month session. I can't believe it's been 6 months since this little one was born!!

Water District Piping Map

I received a request to clean up an engineer map that showed the different well pumps, sizes of pipe, and roads within a water district. The original map had so many pencil marks and updates and cross-outs and was getting a bit beat up from the years of abuse.

So they had the map scanned for me and I created a new map in Illustrator with clean lines, detailed locations of the well pumps and such, and clear street names for the engineers, operators and fire marshals to be able to locate what they need to in the district.

Most designers would say it is boring work, but I actually enjoy this type of stuff. It's a good break from the 'creative side' of the brain and gives me time to work on fine tuning my simple skills and keyboard shortcuts.

1st Birthday Invitation

A dear friend of mine came to me with an invitation idea for her sweet little boy who is about to turn ONE! I can't believe how fast these kiddos are growing! Time just needs to stop! ;)

She just needed help getting her thoughts into a file that she could send out to get printed, so of course I offered my services. I didn't mean for her to pay me anything for it... it didn't take all that long and goodness, what are friends for?! But the amazing girl knows my heart and sent me a giftcard for Starbucks. Ahhh. Yum!
