Guest Bathroom Renovation - Virginia Beach Photographer

So work on this house seems pretty much never-ending.  I tackled our 2nd bathroom and I'm so proud of myself for not doing white and grey.  haha   This one is in the guest bedroom so I wanted to go a bit more rustic but I still managed to squeeze some gold in there.  :)  

I have to say I am extra proud of this renovation b/c all the big items are from Home Depot and Lowes.  It was truly a budget friendly renovation.  And b/c I hate starting off a post with ugly images, the before photos are at the bottom.  

 

Master Bathroom Renovation - White | Grey | Chrome | Gold - Virginia Beach Photographer

Well today, I am not going to post about people I have photographed but instead will give you a sneak peek at my home.  The few months I have been running around like a mad woman on a renovation reality show.  It's great that it keeps me busy during my husband's deployment, but all the chaos has had my home covered in dust and shipping boxes of things that I keep purchasing and returning for this renovation.  Anyway, I'm excited to say that it's finally complete.  Now, I still have to accessorize and put shelves, hooks and pictures on the walls but I'm actually crazy enough to think that I may just repaint the walls another color.   LOL  I'm really into White and Gold so lately my entire house has been repainted and reaccessorized to satisfy my obsession.  Makes me think that maybe I should start a home blog.  Haha

Here are the before/ after photos:  (I'm going to put the before photos on the bottom because I'd hate to start off a photography blog post with a horrible picture.  And excuse the bad wide angle photos.  I actually sold my wide angle lens last year so I had to use my iPhone.)

New Packaging - DC / Northern VA Newborn Photographer

I am so delighted to send out my first USB file!!  I had so much fun working on the packaging.  Unfortunately, I didn't get to engrave my logo onto this round box so I had stamp made instead.  And then of course, they forgot to ship the brown ink so I had to use black ink.  But I still think it came out ok.  I love that the USB drive has the baby's name and birthdate engraved on the back also - which I blurred out for the privacy of my clients.    

Going forward, this square box will be the packaging my clients will receive if they purchase digital files with their session.  Unless of course I find something way cooler in the meantime.   

Nursery - DC/ Northern Virginia - Maternity, Newborn, Baby/ Child, Family Photographer

We live in a rental and a lot of the rooms in this house are painting in colors that do not suit my style at all.  I could paint them over, but what's the point in spending money to paint a house I'm only going to live in for a few yrs.  But my daughter's room was the one big exception.  It was this unflattering minty green color.  This is the only room in the house that makes me feel "at home".  This is me.  And I wish I could redo the whole house this way.  I guess it doesn't matter since I'll be spending a lot of time in this room going forward.  :)
