I love art on my walls.  I love it way more if it reminds me of a joyful memory or something funny my children do or say.  I also love color.  Check out what katy hall photography is offering.  Available in sizes 4×6 up to 30×40.   Check out some of the latest frame options More…

Despite the sub zero temperatures, these two made their wedding day full of warmth.  Their day included this vintage train yard, Mill City Museum, and Spill the Wine for their ceremony and reception.  I loved the quaint details of their day including personalized Converse tennis shoes, cork place cards, and color coordinating North Face coats More…

I love when I meet a senior who has the confidence to be themselves and represent what they love.  This sweet girl loves concerts, her lovely friends, tea, and all things vintage.  It was an honor to photograph her and capture her striking “Zoe Deschanel” eyes.

Oh how I love this couple!  They not only showed admiration for each other, they were hilarious.  (So hilarious that when I got in the car after the shoot I had mascara smeared on my face.)  Their date is set for August and I can’t wait to capture their special day.  The tandem bike was More…

How can I NOT love a shop called “Sweet Lulu?!”  Those of you that know me personally, know that I have the sweetest Lulu girls (four of them!).  All of them with the middle name Lu so when my memory flees me I can just yell “LuLu girls!”  I am not sure how you’ll choose More…

I love self help books (mostly because I need LOTS of help!).  This is one of my top 3 favorite parenting books.  Each year I have to reread it and am again reminded of it’s great wisdom in giving your children security, significance, and strength.  I love two points Tim Kimmel makes in the first More…

Something new Katy Hall Photography is offering… wearable ART.  I know I have my favorite photos that remind me of a time of laughter or a moment I want to hold on to.  These necklaces are handcrafted from a photo you choose from in your session using 1mm thick sterling.  You can choose either a More…

I love to read everything.  Books, signs, magazines (I know, highly sophisticated) all give me reminders of what I should be thinking about.  My house is filled with “Love what you do” and “i like you” signs as gentle reminders throughout the day to my children and those that come to our home.  Each one More…

I love kitchen towels.  I don’t usually allow myself to buy any (because I have a drawer unfolded and overflowing), but I LoVe buying them as gifts (or getting them from those that know me best).   Check out these A-dor-able ones from House 8810.  (http://www.house8810.com)  They had me at retro deck chair dishtowel.  After you More…

Sometimes I think I would have a made a wonderful farm housewife.  Not the kind that actually does the farm work, or loves the animals, or gets really dirty… !   The kind that wears her apron and plants her garden of fresh vegetables and sips lemonade on the front porch (sounds rough, doesn’t it?!).  Well, More…
