The Revive Workshop | Dallas Calligrapher

I got to be a part of my first workshop last year, and I'm so glad that Carly Potter asked me to create some pieces for the event! Jessica Gold's Revive Workshop looked like a dream, with a gorgeous white venue, romantic florals, and pops of slate gray linens.

For this suite, I used blush handmade paper from South America with a unique terra cotta ink color. It turned out so beautiful, and Jessica's photos are so lovely. Hopefully more workshops are in my future. :)

Dockside Romance: Styled Shoot | Boise Calligrapher

This feels a little weird to be blogging about, because I happen to be the model for this shoot. So be prepared for a lot of pictures of my face. ;) 

This shoot is what happens when you take three inspired, creative women and give them one day to prepare and about 45 minutes to shoot before the sun sets. I LOVE this shoot because everything is so simple—we didn’t have a lot of props or setup because we didn’t have the time. 

This shoot is also really special to me because it’s the first time I had worn my wedding dress since my wedding about two and a half years before. And my handsome husband was a good sport and let us take his picture. :)

I can’t wait for long summer days in Idaho and more spur-of-the-moment shoots with Stephanie and Laura

Featured: Whimsical Bridal Shoot | Seattle Calligrapher

One of the best things about being a calligrapher is being able to work with people from all over the country. I got to make some new acquaintances in the Seattle area, and I'm hoping to take a trip there in the spring. This shoot was featured on The Avery Grace and captured by the lovely Catie Coyle Photography. Catie's style is so bright and airy, and I think the watercolor pieces I created for the shoot matched perfectly. :) You can see even more photos of the shoot on Catie's blog as well!

Golden Age Boudoir Styled Shoot - Lubbock Calligrapher

Seeing our feature on Belle Lumiere's Journal this afternoon completely made my whole day! Katie and I had talked about her ideas for this shoot a while back, and it's so fun to finally be able to share some of the other swoon-worthy images.

I used the most amazing dove grey handmade paper and ended up writing a love letter from Beethoven that he signs, "Ever thine, ever mine, ever ours." Everything came together so well, and I'm so thrilled that I was able to be a small part of it. :)

Welcome to my little corner of the internet. :)

I've been praying over this little blog, business, and website for several months now--this has been a long time coming. This is something I've been hoping and wishing for, and I've been putting it off by convincing myself that I'm not ready.

I'll be honest--I'm a little nervous! I feel like I have no idea how to start a business, even a small, mostly online one. It's scary to share art that you've worked hard on, to open it up to possible criticism.

I hope you'll be patient with me as I try to figure all of this out. Prayers would be appreciated, and stay tuned for some fun projects!
