Home Sweet Home

I work from home.  Even though my photography studio is the beautiful outdoors, most of my time is really spent in my office.  I edit my images here.  I meet with my clients for their consultations and ordering sessions here.  I package orders here.  It's a place that I wanted to feel inspired in, but was not.

When I thought about making changes to my space, I asked myself what inspires me.  Rustic pieces, barn wood, shabby chic....everything that my office wasn't!

I turned to Sheryl Amos, owner of Whimsical Place, for help.  Whimsical Place is my favorite store in Woodbury.  I find myself stopping by whether I need to pick up a gift for a friend or am looking for fun home accessories or jewelry.   Even when I need nothing at all but a few minutes of being in a place that makes me happy, I stop by Whimsical Place.

Sheryl introduced me to her amazing designer, Kim Owens of Kimberly Ann Designs.  I met Kim and was impressed with the time she took to create the perfect space for me.  Kim space-planned the room for the best layout, asked me all the right questions about how I really use the space.  She didn't miss a detail!  She even brought barn wood into my room as she customized a desk for both workspace and meeting with my clients!  It's so perfect!  Kim sketched and custom designed my furniture pieces to make sure everything I required from a work standpoint was included.   The creation was practical (as she planned storage for my printer and external hard drives keeping them out of sight), all while creating a look that inspires me!

Together, Sheryl and Kim selected paint color and proper lighting (no more dark room) that makes this space a happy place!  Call me trusting or call me crazy (or maybe I just watch too much HGTV), but  I left my office that day and these two talented women decorated my space in a way that perfectly represents Colleen Davis Photography!

An exchange of Vows

Who would have predicted such cool tempertures, for a Saturday in the month of July, here in Minnesota?  A high only in the 60's, but it didn't matter when witnessing the warmth and love in the hearts of this bride and groom.  With much love and emotion, the families joined in celebrating this couple as they exchanged wedding vows and became husband and wife.  Wishing them a lifetime of happiness, here is a sneak peek into their special day!

Joining Two Hearts!

This past weekend was a beautiful day for joining of two hearts ..... with the exchange of their "I do's".  Many guests traveled great distances for this joyful occasion, including the bride and groom.  Officiating at the wedding ceremony was the groom's father, making the day even more memorable.  It was so heartwarming to see two such loving families come together.  I congratulate the couple and wish them a lifetime of happiness.

High School Seniors Rock!

This HS Senior sure 'rocked' his HS Senior session.  Being able to incorporate his passion of playing guitar made perfect sense.  I'm pretty sure we got his album cover during this shoot!  Scouting out the perfect location made this session more of a hiking workout as we walked and climbed steep stairs multiple times....I am officially counting that as my exercise quota that week!!   The cool thing about this HS Senior is that I remember the day he was born - wow, now I feel old!  I remember the day my good friend called me at work to let me know she had her first baby!!  Now that baby is graduating High School!  I cannot believe it!!  He is an awesome young man and I'm so excited to see what his future holds for him!  Congratulations!
