Welcome to the new blog!

I am so excited to finally reveal my new blog and branding! It’s been a long; sometimes painful, but mostly exciting process! I am beyond pleased with the final result! Joell from Image Garden saw my vision immediately and went to work making it a reality! I envisioned Β something fresh, clean, and whimsical with a touch of vintage! Thank you so much Joell.

All the “peachy” images of me throughout this site were taken by my dear friend Amanda from Amanda K Photography! We met up one lovely evening in July at a gorgeous peach orchard close to Portland, Oregon! As you can tell, we had way too much fun! The whole session was with this new blog in mind. I love peaches…mmm and can almost smell the sweet scent as we laughed, juggled, and ran through the orchard. Thank you Amanda!

Some of you may remember when I first started blogging a couple years ago, I had a tree logo. I loved it but couldn’t make it look right. So I drifted away from the tree for awhile but I missed it a lot. Jane Johnson to the rescue! I’ve since sat and stared at the little girl on the swing under this gorgeous tree for hours as I worked on inspiration for the blog. It couldn’t be more perfect! It truly symbolizes everything I wanted it to; carefree childhood summer days spent out in the country, dreaming about the future. In many ways it’s me; simply Rosie. Thank you Jane. I am so grateful!

I won’t get all mushy but I want to thank my biggest supporter; my husband Mark. He is always there for me, never fail! He is the reason I started photography in the first place and is my trusty 2nd shooter! I really could not do this without him. Thanks Love!

I will refrain from writing a novel! As most of you know, I love blogging! I have a lot of catching up to do so you’ll be hearing from me often! Thank you to all my faithful readers. I truly love hearing from you so please don’t be shy! I love “meeting” you. Mark & I look forward to an exciting year of meeting new clients/friends!

Please stay awhile and explore my new blog and come back often as I will be doing some fun give-aways later this week! And don’t forget to update your bookmarks as I won’t be posting to my old blog anymore!!

    This has been quite the journey but I am so proud of you that you went back to your tree stuck with what you wanted from the beginning and worked it through. I feel honored to call you my wife and I look forward to the years to come of all the new and creative ideas that you will come up with. It has been so fun to watch you grow with this whole picture thing and to see the pictures that you have come up with sometimes just blow me away. Love you tons and I will always be here supporting you and challenging you. Love you sunshine.
