My business came about from my love of photography and mixed media art. I love to create beautiful things and textures make me a happy camper.


My most popular products are the textures. I currently have over 80 collections on the website. There is a giant selection of vintage resources I curated from my love of antique shopping, a ton of hand painted collections, and a large variety of product I created from my photography taken in junkyards and abandoned houses.

design3-e1401425522541-1024x272 We just couldn't wait to feature this gorgeous senior session from Forum Member,  Megan Bryant of Megan Bryant Photography in Chatham, Virginia!

Megan, describe this session:  Kelsey is one of my 2015 senior models. When we planned her session, we knew we wanted to do some edgy dance photos---ohhh I wish I could show you all of them! We shot her entire session downtown, so with no change in location and time wasted driving, she had TONS of photos. Hands down, this was one of my top favorite sessions this year!

Inspiration: Kelsey dances, so I knew that I would build on that. She said she wanted to shoot downtown, and I went with an edgier look which she was TOTALLY down with:)

Equipment: Canon 5d Mark III, 85 1.2L, 50 1.4

Concept or Style Collaboration:  Yes, we planned the outfits and looks together.

Editing:  I shoot in RAW and try to get my images as close to perfect in camera as I can. The image of her in the red leotard in the bay door has had very little processing done to it. I was so proud of how amazing it looked SOOC!

Favorite thing about  this session:  My favorite thing about this session is the variety. Kelsey's outfits were so well put together. She had asked me if she could wear a flower crown, so I brought along one that I had made. I had hats, she had dance costumes, and so many accessories. Like I said before, I wish that I could show you the whole session!
