the gown shop . ann arbor . anniversary celebration

I dipped my toes into what they call “networking” about a year ago… I’m not so good at shaking hands and giving an elevator pitch :) Happily one of the first people I met was Stacey.  She had just opened a new gown boutique “the Gown Shop” downtown Ann Arbor that in my opinion was not only gorgeous but exactly what Ann Arbor was missing!  Personal appointments, beautiful dresses, right on main street.  What was even more perfect is that Stacey is every bit as wonderful as her boutique, or I suppose her boutique is as wonderful as her.  We happily became friends! When she asked me if I’d photograph her one year anniversary celebration I was honored.. here are a few frames from the event last week, tons more on my facebook page!

Abby of Abby Rose Photography took these for us of me and Sean, Sean was of course working the portrait booth.

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
