faithbooking crop reminder & a recipe

If you are interested in attending the February Faithbooking Crop (click HERE for details) this weekend, be sure to let me know by the end of the day! Too, I just tested out a killer recipe that I had to share (it would make for the perfect crop snack or party appetizer).


Little Turkey Smokies in Spicy Sauce


  • 2 packages (about 2 lbs.) little turkey smokies
  • 1-1/2 cups ketchup
  • 1/8 tsp. ground allspice
  • 1/4 tsp. ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 jar (about 12 ounces) apricot preserves
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar, packed
  • 2 Tbsp. wine vinegar, red or white


  1. In the slow cooker insert, stir together the ketchup, seasonings, preserves, brown sugar, and red or white wine vinegar. Add the little smokies; cover and cook on LOW for 3 to 4 hours.
  2. Serve hot from the slow cooker.

eating disorder documentary

I watched this HBO documentary [Thin] quite some time ago and found it to be one of the most accurate portrayals of what life is like for someone with an eating disorder.  Director Lauren Greenfield and Director of Photography Amanda Micheli lived at The Renfrew Center for six months, exploring every aspect of the inpatients’ daily lives. Amazingly, I found the documentary in its entirety online (after watching the video below it should bring you to the next one in the 11-part series).

a la carte items {the iphone case}

wrap around case

I’ll be introducing several new a la carte items available to photography clients who select either a print package or digital collection featured HERE.  I LOOOOOVE showcasing my own images in beautiful, fun & unique ways and am constantly on the lookout for the best ways to do so.  As you might know from your own shopping experiences, photo products can vary greatly in quality, color & price.  All three of those characteristics are important to me as both a consumer AND photographer, making it a goal to offer clients products that I enthusiastically stand behind.  There are a lot of cheap imitations out there and there is nothing worse than spending money on a professional photography session only to end up with images and/or products that fall short of looking so.

how the case comes together

That being said, for only $60/plus tax these customized iPhone cases knock it out of the park (they are available in styles tailored to the iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 3GS, and iPod Touch). Not only would this eye-catching case make for a very special gift, it would be the perfect way to remember a high school senior session.  Or as a contemporary “brag book” for mom.  For more information in booking a photography session, just click on the contact button at the top of the page and fill out the form.
