I'm a photographer providing honest & authentic images that tell the stories of your connection
Hi, I'm Emily

When I have a free day, meaning I don’t have to go to work and I’m also all caught up on photography things, my roommates and I make impromptu decisions and go with them.

This day it happened to be making a trip to Hobby Lobby for some canvas and paint. Then, a stop at CVS for a table cloth to put down on the wood floors (check out how beautiful it is). Then, we grabbed all of my art supplies out of the trunk of my car (don’t ask why that’s where it has been stored lately) and headed upstairs to get to work.

What I loved about this project was the different looks we each went for. Hannah painted a large canvas and two small ones in a very picaso-type way, but ended up covering it with vintage-looking paper, making for an elegant piece of wall decor. She hasn’t fully completed hers, so I’ll update this post with a picture of it when she’s finished. 🙂 Courtney used a quote she loves and painted a small canvas with bright and cheery colors. I painted multiple canvases in different ways; one with bright yellow stripes and a quote, one with a flower, and one with a little blue bird carrying flowers. If we laid them out and asked anyone who they thought painted each one, I bet people would be able to guess correctly. They fit our personalities and our styles. I like that.
