I’ve always wanted to make a font of my handwriting. You may not know that I’m pretty particular with my handwriting. I remember it started in oh, maybe high school. My friends bet that I couldn’t do my homework without using an erasure. So kill me, I cared how it looked! I wonder if my kids will care more. There is still hope! My neat handwriting came in handy for years in Drafting class and later as I did drafting for years while going to college, before switching to computer-aided-design. I saw a post on Facebook and a fellow scrapbooker/photographer posted about Kevin and Amanda’s blog and how she offers to make fonts out of your handwriting. I set down and after an attempt or two I had my submission. I hope they choose it to create or I’ll have to go looking for other venues to get this accomplished. So anyway, if you want an anal-retentive (okay, that was harsh as there is some flowy-ness to it!) font I’ll keep you posted and let you know when it’s available. In the meantime, check out the site for yourself and let me know if you have a font made of your hand-writing.

I get the cutest handwriting fonts at Fonts for Peas!

I went to the kick-off for the Detroit SmugMug group last night and was so inspired by Dawn McCarthy of Dawn McCarthy Photography. She was so witty and informational. I loved every minute of it. She is a ‘fantastical’ wedding photographer but a lot of her info easily transferred to all aspects of photography. Dawn has a great blog ( and even shares many video clips of herself. I realized I’ve been too quiet on my blog and want to share more of myself and my love for photography in hopes that you may choose me as your photographer…

I’ve been studying photography for years and am now ready to put myself out there and capture moments in your life. In my studies of all things photography, I came across MCP Actions blog and am now a regular guest blogger for her. She has over 13,000 readers and it grows daily. Jodi lives in SE Michigan so it’s especially cool to be working with her. We share the same love for northern Michigan. Anyway, here is my latest post. I write compilation posts – gathering links to previous articles and tying all together and even try to throw in a bit of myself.

I also enjoyed the opportunity to talk with some fellow Michigan photographers as I never tire of talking about it. I encouraged a few to try Lightroom but didn’t share my joke about having an ‘I heart LR’ tattoo. I didn’t want to scare any one off!
