Christmas in 'da Burg

Christmas in Fredericksburg is completely magical.
There's just no other word for it.

The sights, the sounds, the good cheer
which permeates every nook of our
sweet little ''s infectious.

I'm working on a project with my
completely BRILLIANT friend
Sarah Batch, of 
and watch out, world.
We are both the same brand of
git-er-done, work-til-ya-drop cray cray,
and teamed up, we plan
to move mountains.

Part of the project entailed me
getting a few Christmas 2014 shots,
so I hit the streets yesterday
and wanted to share a few with you.

Fröhliche Weihnachten!

 And the reason for the Season....

All photos in our beautiful Marktplatz!

Be sure to visit Sarah

Introducing the Brand New Timeless Menagerie!

The brand new location, that is!

Even though Lori's shop Timeless Menagerie 
and my photos are featured
in the current issue of Romantic Homes magazine
the shop has moved just down the street to an
even more enchanting location.

I just completed my first shoot 
at the new store, and it certainly
did not disappoint.

Feast your eyes on the beauty
that only Lori Smithers can create!

I'm Bitsy, and I'm not only the shop greeter,
but I make this Rachel Ashwell sofa look goooooood.

Sumptuous bed linens, pillows and curtains.

And these divine Liztech bracelets!

Stackable and stunning.

A corner for the wee ones.

Ribbons and glitter and tassels...
all the essential stuff.

 { ^ ^ ^ spot the Frenchie! }

And Annie Sloan Chalk Paint!
 Lori and the shop are stockists
of this incredible paint,
and offer many workshops for all skill levels.

Lori and Bitsy would just LOVE
for you to come pay them a visit!
And they're all decked out for Christmas now,
so hurry on over to the 'burg.

Here Comes the Bride

I've put off photographing people for
going on five years now.
It was just a thing with me, a mental block, if you will.
I preferred photographing "things"....lovely old homes,
vintage treasures, rusty found objects.

Things didn't talk back.
People sorta scared me.
But I knew it was time to finally make the leap.

I was fortunate to work with
not only a divine young model,
but also a fantastic vintage rental company.
See credits below.

How cute is this girl???

And how completely lovely
and soulful are those baby blues of hers?

Brooke patiently and sweetly sat for all the poses
I suggested.

....but just because she loves
Taylor Swift and HAD to have this shot, 
I humored her...

And I'm so glad I did!
It's my favorite photo from the whole shoot.
Taylor Swift never looked so good!

Will I continue shooting bridals?
I certainly hope so.
But for right now, I'm just reveling in small victories.
I tried.
And sometimes that's the hardest step to take.

Happy Weekend!

Published in Romantic Homes! A Timeless Menagerie Christmas!

I can FINALLY talk about the fabulous
photo shoot I did last Christmas,
because the magazine feature just hit the stands.

I was blessed to be able to photograph
my good friend Lori Smithers
GORGEOUS shop Timeless Menagerie
this past Christmas.

And my lovely friends at 
Romantic Homes Magazine
were absolutely thrilled to feature
the shop in their monthly
"Shopkeeping" feature.

I hope you'll enjoy these peeks
at the original images
featured in the story!

Nobody does Christmas like Lori!

Love Marie?
So does Timeless Menagerie!

This Christmas alleyway display at TM
won the "best of" decorating contest
in our cute little town of Fredericksburg!

Vintage and glitter and bells and tinsel, and....oh my!

Since doing this shoot,
Lori and Timeless Menagerie have relocated
to an even more gorgeous location
( if you can believe THAT )
just down the street!

And because the photos look just soooooo
much dreamier on my website, click here
and take a little peek:

To pay Lori a visit in person,
head here:
