Happy holidays! Did you know there is only 2 1/2 weeks until Christmas? What!!! If you are scrambling for gift ideas, relax. I got you. I have 10 super cool, modern and meaningful gifts for your loved ones. These gifts are affordable and easy. But you gotta get shopping: this weekend is the last weekend to get standard shipping rates.
So without further ado, let's unwrap my top 10 photo gifts of 2017.....
Let's start with cards! If you're like me, your just starting to think about 'em. These 2 in 1 cards are a favorite! It's a holiday card, but also a photo and gift tag you can tear apart! Genius. All of their cards are simple and beautiful. You can add a personalized message on the back too. Check 'em out here.
Photo printed on 100% sustainably sourced maple wood. There is potential for a wow factor here. Get yours here.
I give this gift out to someone every year. I gave this to my mom last year, and everytime I go to her house, she has a different photo on display. It's a favorite! Order yours here.
The best part is that it has a magnet on the back to put on the fridge! I'm definitely ordering this for family this year. You too? Go here.

These softcover albums are super affordable and great for gift-giving! The small 5x5 fits perfectly in a stocking or grandmas purse. Adorbs. Start publishing here.
from Parabo: "We’ve teamed up with MASTERPIX Fine Glass Prints to print your photos onto velvety matte glass. Your photo will be printed at 20% opacity, so the colors are softened and light can shine through." These are so cool. They come with a clear acrylic stand too. Perfect for a desk by the window. Get one here.
Make a little treasure box of favorite moments for someone special, for your kids, for your lover. Start here.
You're gonna need some cute photos to make all these gifts right? Photographs with loved ones are the gifts that keep on giving. Gift your favorite family or couple! This is the perfect gift to go in on with other family members or friends. Gift certificates can be made to any amount. Get one here.

Oh, the days dwindle down to a precious few
And these few precious days I'll spend with you
These precious days I'll spend with you
It is Thanksgiving morning here as i finish up this blog post. And it is the perfect day to post this. I am so grateful to have such wonderful families to photograph. Thank you to all who have supported me this year. It has been my best year yet.
And to my fall families, thank you for those precious days I spent with you. Happy holidays:)
From my family to yours, have a happy Thanksgiving. xoxo
The Overlands were so much fun to work with, they truly were dream clients. There is 3 generations represented here and 2 dogs! We "hiked" around the park, climbed trees, hit the playground and pretended we were pirates.
Thank you Overland family. xoxo.

The fall is closing in quickly. School started and the summer seemed to instantly disappear. A short period of mourning took place but I am back and ready now to take on the Autumn season! It is my favorite season. I love going to the pumpkin farm and the apple orchard. Unboxing the sweaters, sipping on cider, curling up with a good book (dream scenario, unlikely as a mom). And of course getting ready for my favorite holiday: Halloween! I love watching the leaves change colors and it is the best time to get your family portraits done. For one weekend (October 14 and 15) I offer 30 minute photo shoots at Humboldt Park in Bay View. A beautiful fall setting. We will take a walk around the park and stop to take the family portrait and as time allows, get photos with all the different combinations of the family: just mom and kids, siblings, kid portraits, etc. Use the contact form and let me know which day you prefer and i will let you know which sign up times are left. Thank you! This is going to be a lot of fun!
