Oh hi there!

I realize that it’s been a bit since I’ve been posting but I’m happy to tell you there’s been a lot of good things going on in between. Watching Kevin as a shark in the school play, celebrating a year of Kindergarten, catching up with old friends, meeting new brides, beginning wedding season {yay!}, and soaking up family time during Memorial Day weekend. Although I have intentions of posting more often, you can follow me on Instagram {@AndreaDozier} for fresh{er} updates.

Can you believe that our lovely peonies have bloomed and withered since this post? Oh my.

They smelled even more amazing than they looked. ♥

It’s becoming very clear to me that I can not be the typical wedding photography blog{ger}. Most of my energy & time is spent being a mama, especially as I’ve cut back the number of weddings I photograph {to spend more time being a mama}. Everyone says that you should blog what you like, and even though I do like love my job {and will continue to blog beautiful weddings}, it’s not the only thing in my life. I’m realizing that the reason why I find it so cumbersome to blog my work is because I am not sharing what I’m most passionate about. Although I created a personal blog, it was hard to separate what is only professional & what belonged there. For me, it’s the little details that I sometimes want to share the most. Like playing around with thyme & shaping cursive letter A’s…

Some of you might have noticed some layout & category changes I’ve made to my blog. I’d love to unroll a new design as well, but I am in transition & just want to test the waters a bit before I commit to a new “face.” I’ve begun to optimize your experience by separating my blog into three easy to find categories. You can now find the personal posts {plus some posts from my personal blog now added to this one}, “Sweet Threads” in one category on the top menu. Weddings & Portraits in the “Weddings” link, and “DIY” projects in that link.

If you enjoy all of the posts, you can just always click on the “Home” link or www.andreadozier.com/blog where everything is found in one place.

Thanks so much for your sweet support & feedback! Please feel free to let me know what you think! ♥

* I think that quote I used in the photograph was written by another Andrea {clearly a *little* biased} but I couldn’t help but like it. “She is confident, honest, loyal, protective of what she has, strong, artistic, beautiful inside and out, excellent lover. A tower of strength for those she cares for, the rock to her family.” -The meaning of Andrea from the Urban Dictionary

 Some of my blogging & Instagram friends are participating in Feb Photo A Day so I joined in too! I’ll post some of the pictures here, but all of them on Instagram {andreadozier}.
The prompt for #Day 2? WORDSThis is a little peek at the wall to my left when I’m at the computer in my home office {where I edit wedding photography, blog, email…}. It’s good to remember this. ♥

 

Tad Carpenter was the designer & he sells these sweet
“What I Love Most About My Home is Who I Share it With” prints here.

    Aw, I love that! Thanks for sharing. It's hard to stop and remember that on busy days. What a lovely point. <3

Today was the kind of day we needed:

A {planned} two hour delay for Kevin.
Tim Horton’s for breakfast.
Gas that was cheaper than the advertised price.
A cheerful Damian.
A tidy little house & clean sheets…
and freshly sharpened pencils.

If that wasn’t enough, I received the pictures from Erin & Pete’s vintage wedding featured in The Knot Ohio’s Spring/Summer 2012 issue! I’m really honored to have their wedding included as a real wedding, but they put together a beautiful & very special event!


Now if only dinner were already finished ♥

    Thank you all! My bride had worked so hard on this wedding but was so very very sweet… I’m glad they picked her!

I saw this on Design Sponge & crossed my fingers that illustrator Tad Carpenter sold this print. I wasn’t the only one who e-mailed him, so he did decide to release these beautiful letterpress prints in white & brown versions! Check out his blog for info on how to get your own!


No matter what we do to fix up this darling old house, the three “mans” I share it with are definitely the very best part. ♥

{Although my pretty little corner office isn’t so bad}.
