    Shabby Chic Valentine’s Day Backdrop

    DIY Shabby Chic Valentine's Day Backdrop

    A pretty holiday full of red and pink, with doily’s and sweet hearts was just too perfect! I just had to make a fun backdrop for my little valentines. And bonus: no sewing or glueing for this shabby chic Valentine’s Day backdrop!

    I actually could have just used all the red and white fabric from the American Flag backdrop I made last year, but I decided to switch out for some super feminine fabric. I did, however, use the feminine white fabric, lace, and pom poms as well as the red tulle from the American Flag backdrop. Continue reading

Asking me to talk about photography is like asking Elsa to talk about ice (forgive the princess references–I have a two year old whose identity changes based on the princess she feels embodies her inner most desires at the moment). I could get reeeeallll boring, reeeeaaaaallll quick. But, I chose an easy to understand, easy to implement tip today; How to achieve the perfect white balance on your phone! That’s right, it can all be done on your phone! Even better, right?!

    My love of my big girl cameras knows no bounds, but with three kids and a busy schedule, my DSLR + film cameras can’t make the trip everywhere I go. So, when I’m on the go, my “professional” camera, is whatever I have on me – usually my iPhone. I’m always on the hunt for the best platform for taking and editing those spur of the moment shots.
