Over the next couple of months I'll be sharing some tips and ideas with you that I use in my own flower garden(s). I can show you that with a little imagination and a few bucks your flower beds will look awesome. Who doesn't love a fun DIY project? Especially when it involves being outside in the fresh air.
First up, hosta plants. I love hostas! The simple fact that they're low maintenance is all I need to hear. Plus, when they outgrow their space you can just chop them in half (or fourths) and plant elsewhere.
I had this little area of grass in front of my garage. It was a nuisance to mow so it was given a new look. My neighbor was selling hostas at her garage sale for $1. Score! My parents decided to update their landscaping and no longer needed the lava rocks they were using. Another score!
I wait until the end of Winter (when all of the snow melts) before trimming the dead leaves off of the plants. And that's it. Mother Nature takes care of the rest.

Why is puppy breath so irresistible? Those who can't resist snuggling with a new pup know exactly what I'm speaking of.
Last week I was able to meet my friend's newest member of the family. Her name is Bonnie. Of course I pulled out my camera for her first mini photo session.
She's absolutely precious. Her sweet eyes, her gentle bark, and her...puppy breath.

Catnaps can happen anywhere. Get outside and take advantage of the fresh air and your surroundings.

I had the pleasure of photographing this Senior last weekend here in Galena, IL. She was so much fun to work with and went along with all of my crazy ideas. Congratulations Hope on your upcoming graduation and to what adventures lie ahead!
From now on I'll be sharing my future photo sessions here on the blog. Therefore, the numbers are for the clients to order their prints.
Until the next session...
