ribbonsofred A happy snow day for the "three" of us! Off to pull Aria in her baby sled for... probably 15 minutes. Ha ha ha. 6h

ribbonsofred Always start with the logo, but don't stop there. Get a stationary suite with business cards, thank you notes, and pretty packaging—just to name a few. Your clients need to feel appreciated before, during, and after you've worked together. Their brand experience with you doesn't end with the shoot. Have a site built. NOT a cookie-cutter template. Don't you dare stuff yourself into someone else's idea of average. You are unique, so is your photographic eye, and your site should be a reflection of that. Settling for average, makes you average. Strive to be better. Invest in yourself. You ARE worth it. #RORTinyTips 10h

ribbonsofred I dreamed about our little girl last night—ALL night long! She had big eyes, dark blonde hair, and LOTS of rolls. It's the only time I dreamed of her and actually saw her face. Just 6 more weeks or so, until we get to meet her! 1d

ribbonsofred Every pregnancy, I buy something special to commemorate our baby-to-be. When I was pregnant with Aria, I found a beautiful antique baby ring (circa late-1800's to early-1900's). It had, "BABY" inscribed on it. I threaded it on a gold chain and wore it until she got old enough to grab at it.
With Baby Girl #2 on the way, I was lucky enough to find another ring to commemorate the last addition to our family. It's a bit smaller (to represent the "littlest" girl in our family) and gold to match Aria's! Rather than "BABY", it's inscribed with a tiny 'P'—the first initial in baby-to-be's name!

One day I hope to pass these rings down to my girls. Let's just hope that day doesn't come too soon!

ribbonsofred Pink Ribbons Puppies is a non-profit organization that photographs puppies in pink, to combat Breast Cancer. I'm so proud that this little logo (a ribbon that forms a sweet pooch!) helps take a stand against Cancer—because it SUCKS! #RORClients 4w

ribbonsofred I remember the very first Lemonade and Lenses (@lemonadeandlenses) gathering! It started out as a small, casual picnic for photographers to learn from each other. I branded it for fun, not knowing how quickly it would grow in the coming years. As a designer, it's such a joy to watch something you put your heart into, flourish! #RORClients 4w
  •   lemonadeandlenses I know how you feel. I can't believe it has turned into what it is today. I feel truly blessed to have had you as a part of it from the very beginning :) xoxo 4w
  •   skye_wohphoto I forgot you were in Cincy. My brother lives there and we spent a few days there this fall. Great city! 4w
  •   ribbonsofred @skye_wohphoto I didn't know that!! Where in Cincinnati? We had the BEST fall this year! I think we went out every weekend and did something festive! Like a corn maze or pumpkin patch. It was perfect! 4w
  •   skye_wohphoto @ribbonsofred - he lives in Monroe I think it is. Outside of the city. Stayed there to and from my Lexington Workshop. I'm moving back to PA this summer and will be visiting my brother more as his two boys are best buds with my son. I can't wait to go to Jungle Jim's! 4w
  •   ribbonsofred Oh man, Lexington is just a stones throw away from me. I know Monroe as well. That's too funny! Jungle Jim's is the BEST!!! 4w
  •   coriklecknerphotography Love this 3w
  •   ribbonsofred @coriklecknerphotography Aw thank you!! It was so fun designing for Lemonade and Lenses. 3w
