I was giving all my salon clients new looks as 2009 was headed out. I wanted a new look too :( What to do with no hair? Give my website a new look instead.

Happy New Years!!!

Give me some jewelry, and some photographers...

Shannon Stellmacher Photography

I got a message from Carrie M. Nader asking me if I'd be available for a photoshoot for her jewelry line. Of course I said yes! I love getting creative minds together... Little did I know that we'd be joined by the creative minds of Shannon Stellmacher of Shannon Stellmacher Photography as well as Kimberly M. Sayre of Mill Cottage Photography. Well let me just say what a great day spent. Here are a few photos from that day..
