Matting 101

Backstory: On Saturday we went Antiquing at the Charleston Antique mall and Hubby found Lion King laser discs that came with 6 lithographs that were sealed. When we got in the car he opened them up and decided he wanted to frame them. He let me know later in the evening that he saw a matting tool in one of the cases for $20.

We ended up going back for the tool and I learned how to mat this weekend. Man those math skills really came into play perhaps I should have started with something simple with maybe just one hole.

I may have had a few frustrations with the learning curve but once I got it I enjoyed the process.

The final project.

Baby Shower Shoot

This past weekend I was invited to photograph a baby shower. It was so much fun to capture Natalie and her family and friends joy throughout the shower.

The shower was at Sugar's Bakery. Natalie the happy mommy to be!
I love Natalie's expression she was sharing how ready and excited she was.
