The Great Mindy Gledhill

I've been waiting to show these for a few months. Mindy Gledhill, talented singer and songwriter, asked us to take some photos for her new album, Anchor.

I felt lucky to get a sneek peek at the music and get a feel for what she wanted the album photos to be like. She gave me (Tyler had another shoot) free creative license, and I went a bit nuts with it. Did some editing unlike any editing we normally do- this is more vintagey and... subdued color.

It was so fun.

Mindy's music is phenomenal. Her voice is delightful, smooth, whimsical. I can't wait until the album comes out- definitely buying Anchor. Please take a second to check her out. For those who live in Utah, definitely go to her album release concert on August 2nd in Provo, details here. Me and Mr. Blue Lily will be there. If we get our homework done first. :)

For a good cause

I forgot to mention before we left town that our e-friend is going to Africa soon and is holding a gigantic auction to raise funds- we have donated a family session to the auction- check it out here and if you are feeling generous (I hope you are!) go ahead and start a bidding war.

I mean, not a war. Just maybe a bit of friendly crossfire.

Ugh, this is why I shouldn't blog so late at night. ha!

p.s. there are lots of other great things for auction at the site too!

It's nice that after a frustrating night of... frustration (ha)  I can come to the blog to launch Birthday Month Giveaways!  Makes me feel a little bit happier :)

Maybe you've heard of Vol. 25 before? Jessica, owner and artist at the shop, is graciously giving away a set of her adorably artsy overlays to TWO winners!  These overlays can liven up a picture in no time- they are so whimsical and child-like.  She let me try some out, and here's what I came up with:

Cool, huh!  So fun to play around with.  

Vol. 25 also has a whole slew of amazing prints and posters full of the colors I love and design that's so "feel-good" I just want to eat them up.  

So, to enter this contest, just go ahead and leave a comment, and don't forget to leave your email address in the field (that only I will be able to see once posted).  This contest ends Feb 22nd so hurry :). 

(and back to that note of frustration--- turns out I'm not receiving a LOT of my email as of the last 2 days. So- if I haven't replied to you- I didn't get your message.  To those folks who have signed up for sessions in the last 2 days, I am working hard to get you your confirmations! Thank you so much.

xoxo
