Lyndon Heath Cabinetry: Ruxton Residence Master Bedroom

Light, relaxing, and calming would be all words to describe this Master Bedroom. Stepping into the room the natural sunlight beamed in. The light grey walls added a layer of peacefulness and the pop of pink added the touch of happiness. And let’s not forget to mention the fireplace. I have always wanted a fireplace in the master bedroom. It seems to create the perfect warm, romantic and cozy atmosphere.

Lyndon Sentz of Lyndon Heath Cabinetry worked with architect Patrick Jarosinski to create the custom window seats, built-ins, and mantel. Lyndon noted that it is remarkable how the initial concept design is always matches the final product when working with PDJ and Associates. The details and design are well thought through both in design and function. It is the planning and precise execution of the details that make a project complete. ENJOY!!!

Also in the home a custom desk was designed to be hidden behind the closet doors!

Check out how they used closet space and made it very practical and functional.

In August we headed to the lake for a week with family and waited until the day we were leaving to grab a picture of us.

The lake has become a place to relax, unwind, and make memories. Making memories is my favorite part.eight of twevle_743eight of twevle_744

Amanda Austin Interiors: Rolling Road Golf Club Play Room

In July I had the honor to photograph a Play Room designed by Amanda Austin Interiors senior designer Jackie Bayer. The room was colorful, bright, organized, and full of creative space for children to play. However, the room was only like this after Jackie designed it. I do not often see the before pictures of a space, but thought it would be great to share them this time. The before pictures below show the space that Jackie had to work with in order to create a playroom for the Golf Club member’s children. This is where talent is seen. Taking a space that exists, seeing beyond the walls and what is present and designing a space that meets the client’s needs and desires. Not only color was added, but additionally a window that allowed the parents to see their children, new floors, a hand painted mural on the wall, lights, and a large chalkboard wall. See below for the transformation that Jackie designed and be inspired. ENJOY!!

The Before pictures…

And now the AFTER photographs!!!

Summer on Film

Continuing with my goal of shooting more film personally here are some photographs from this summer. I read somewhere someone reminding someone to recall the number of digital pictures it took for them to get images that they loved and not to give up on film, but to keep shooting and learning. I am still exploring how much I like to overexpose (at least 2-3 stops), figuring out when I am comfortable shooting and when I am not, what is causing the blurry images on my end, and what are my hesitations for push the shutter. I continue to love how shooting film slows me down (I know I say this every time, but its true) and I love the colors results of Fuji Pro-400 in the Contax. I continue to use The FIND Lab and their service and scans have been amazing. ENJOY!

so much of our summer is picking seasonal fruit and enjoying it!it might be the blueberries she stuck in her little pocket that I love so much!Our little out of control rose bush in full bloom.our basil plant got a little touch of gold thanks to pinterest’s inspiration.Cleaning her dolls clothes like she saw in her book.

thankfulness

This post is an update about our continued journey as we wait the arrival of our little one. I wrote back in May that “The trusting and hoping does not stop now” that I was pregnant. I have found myself from the beginning and throughout these past six months telling myself often how much God delights in us being dependent on him. Why should I think that now that I was pregnant everything would go according to the books, and that I was back in control? No, God continues to want to grow my faith and he knows what I need in my life to keep my eyes on Him. I am learning to be thankful and grateful for the test and trials that grow my faith that he is in control. Control of every detail.

By week seven of this pregnancy my progesterone levels dropped, significantly enough that my team (doctor and a mid-wife) recommended supplementing with progesterone daily. I received this recommendation while out in CO and could not get medication for several days. I did not know how urgent was it for me to start, and my heart was prone to fear. God kindly reminded me that he is the one who sustains life and that it was Him that I needed to look to in my time of help. I remember the tears that flowed from my eyes thinking about the possibility of losing this baby and again praying and wrestling with these thoughts to a loving God who knows all. I have hung onto these words of truth as it has been God’s grace to sustain this little life that is growing in me.

The last four months have been weekly to bi-weekly blood work checking my progesterone levels. Thankfully I have a wonderful little girl who goes with me and even watches while I sit back with my feet up (just in case if I faint) and turn my head. She picks out my bandage color too! My levels remained low and below “normal” week after week. We had hoped that my body would start taking over and start making the progesterone around week fourteen, but it did not. These weekly levels have tested my faith and have proven to be a roller coaster of emotions. As my levels did not continue to rise we decided to double the amount. After increasing the amount of progesterone my levels even went backwards. This was not the direction I was anticipating. I was discouraged and again fearful as the weeks continued and a miscarriage was still a possibility. I would call my mid-wife and she would kindly remind me that the Lord loves this baby more then I do and she would pray for me. Her faith and knowledge encouraged my fearful soul. She helped me shift my eyes back onto the Lord with every weekly phone call I made.

Early on in this pregnancy I wanted to have a heart of thankfulness no matter the outcome or the journey we walked. I had to train and remind myself. So when I out grow clothes, have sore muscles, see my growing belly in the mirror, lay awake in the middle of the night, or feel a kick, I try to stop and give thanks. I am still in awe that I am pregnant and that we are able to experience this gift of life. This is it was something that I did not know if it would happen again.

I am currently in week 30 and my levels have now just become within a normal range. I am thankful. It is the Lord that has brought us this far. We will continue to monitor them. I am nesting and the list of closest that need to be cleaned and organized has begun. I hoping to use all this nesting energy to get things done, organized, and in order.  My thinking has been that everything will stop once the baby arrives.  A crib was finally ordered and my office will become a nursery.  We continue to trust God to sustain this little one until he decides to enter into our life. Yes we will be adding blue to our home when this little boy arrives!!! We are excited and continue to wait with thankfulness and faith to meet this gift that God has given us.
