Wedding Inspiration - Wedding Favors

TWIG & THISTLE (the blog) is great source of inspiration. Many of their ideas can be adapted for weddings.

Here is one great idea we spotted this week.

They have an Etsy shop where you can purchase the brown paper bags and they often post free downloads for projects.

If you are keeping a close eye on your budget, or want to make your favors yourself then their blog is a must!!

Go to for more information and INSPIRATION!!!!

We love these brown paper bags!

Alms Park Cincinnati - Wedding Venue

Rick and I had the absolute pleasure of photographing a romantic wedding at the beautiful Alms Park, Cincinnati.

Our Winter Portrait Promotion 2010

All through January and February we are offering lots of savings to our customers here at Foreverly.

Our portrait parties are so much fun and a great way to spend an afternoon or morning with children who are a little bored or who want play with friends.

All you need is your home and to invite a few friends over with their children to play and we will take great portraits for you and your friends. Its a bit like a birthday party without the birthday!

The best part is that if you host a Foreverly Portrait party during January or Febuary you get your portraits free of charge. That doesn't mean that we just pass on that charge to your friends either!

We love to take photographs and share our art and when the weather isn't so good this is a great way of doing that. E mail us for a Foreverly Portrait Party information pack to find out more!

Our Holidays 2009

Our family is at the centre of our Holiday and we thought we would share a peek at some of the things we have been up to with them this holiday. Our lovely friend Cory Ann sent us cards games so they featured in a big way. We also had 'Clue', Monopoly and of course Pictureka!
As it was our first Christmas together as a family we merged English traditions with American and made up a few new ones also :)
We made our tree decorations and chose a menu agreeable with everyone!! We made trans-atlantic phone calls and received many cards 'from across the miles'.
We baked, we laughed, we ate, we snoozed! We watched football and movies and had a wonderful time :)
Its been a relaxed and quiet time but now we are ready to head on into 2010 with lots of excitement & enthusiasm  as we continue to blend our photography and our family.
Thank you to all our loyal blog readers for following our story. We wish you a very happy new year!!
