There is a soft spot in my heart for this wedding. I know I say that about every wedding (and it’s one thousand percent true!!), but from the very first time I met Kelly + Matt, I immediately fell in love. Not sure if it was Kelly’s infectious laugh, or Matthew’s positive, happy attitude, but […]

True Story: my to-do lists are thousands of miles long. When I jumped into this profession I didn’t realize how much commitment was needed, especially for the non-creative aspects of the job. On a typical day, I wear multiple hats.  They range from business manager, to creative director, networker, editor, website designer, social media strategist, […]

I have a super soft spot in my heart for newborns. I mean who doesn’t love tiny fingers & toes! Every time I see a little one, my voice does that automatic high pitched “ohhhhh my goodness, look at you” voice. I realized after this session that I did it pretty much the entire time – […]

I’d just like to preface this post by saying: no this is not your typical bar crawl. Sure, it is safe to assume people had a lot of fun + there was drinking involved + yes you hop from bar to bar. BUT this event is really about the animals. Since its first year, the Cleveland Animals Bar Crawl raised over […]
