My Favorite Photo Apps

Although nothing can compare to my Canon DSLRs, I admit I don't know what I'd do without my iPhone. I've been using Mac since I began photography, so I like researching the cool new photo editing features for Instagram. One of my favorite Apps is PicLab HD which is around $2 and has tons of unique moods and filters to your pics. I use @Over to put text on my photos... that's something I've been liking lately! Also, click here to read an article on some unique photo apps by Creative Blog & click here for an article on iPhone camera apps by Digital Trend. Check out my instagram photos @loveandphoto & @thelovebullet to keep up with me & here are some of my favorite photos from my insta!

Ralph Lauren Brown

Let's face it, dogs don't start recognizing their own name for a few months. Since Ralphs, formerly known as Mops, is too small for an i.d. collar, nothing has been set in stone yet! My neighbors and I took the dogs for a long walk yesterday and they brought to my attention that he doesn't really look or act like a Mops. My friend's boyfriend had on a Polo sweatshirt and it clicked! He's regal and nerdy like a Ralph! So I'd like to formally introduce Ralph Lauren Brown.

Meet Mops

Mops is a rescue dog that has recently rescued me! It's so joyful having a puppy in your home. Saying funny things to them and singing just to make their head tilt. Cleaning poop and thanking God you barely saw it on the dark hard wood floor before you stepped on it barefoot. Just JOY! Mops and every dog needs a loving home so please look into adopting from your local rescue shelter. In celebration of Mopsy, your purchase of a Love Bullet necklace will benefit The Wounded Warrior Project as usual but with an additional 5% of proceeds to ASPCA...With 20% OFF your entire sale with the Promo Code: mops

Big Lips Biggest Fan

Getting home the other day to a FedEx on my door step was exciting. The mysterious Madrid, New Mexico address added to my excitement. I open it to find a lovely hand written note from one of my favorite contemporary artists Nigel Conway and something heavily wrapped in padding and tape that is square and I notice heavier than a book. I carefully opened it with scissors which felt like it took one million minutes because of my excitement... to see one of Nigel's signature big lips painting signed on the back!!!!!! To say I am in love with it and grateful for it would be an understatement! To think, I am thirty years old now and collecting things from traveling and collecting beautiful works of art such as this is special to think it will be treasured by my and a piece of my home forever. 
Thank you so much Nigel!

Throwback Thursday: Love in Photos

I heard of a fantastic online photo book printing company and since I am in need of a wedding portfolio for when I go meet with brides at the venue, etc. I decided to try these printers out, I will let you know more when I receive my book! Anyways, in the photography industry, your calling card really is your online portfolio, but I think it's nice to always have printed work to show clients. Looking through my external hard drive for images but I love but just didn't make the cut for my website...I decided to give my blog a sneak peak at some of the photos I choose for my book! I wanted a more "behind the scenes" type of feel! #tbt
