Wendy Updegraff Photography

Wednesday, March 02, 2011

I love looking at photographers blogs. I get so inspired by looking at their take on
 the world and the people in it. 

 A good photographer makes everything look better--they are blessed with a great eye,
 imagination, timing, and patience.

Recently, I had the the honor of discovering a pretty fantastic photographer--Wendy Updegraff.

{Preston, Wendy, Bella}

 I have to stalk admire her talents from afar {on my computer screen!} as she is in
 Florida and I am in NC.
{But, I am trying to convince her that she needs a home in the Carolina Mountains :) }

This girl has incredible skills and when I saw these gorgeous frames on her blog, I immediately
contacted her.

Wendy sells these incredible frames by Organic Blooms. You get to pick your frame style and color.
I love the way these frames accent Wendys photography style. I would love to use these in a little 
girls room!

Wendys beautiful office.

{Contact Wendy for the price list}

Now brace yourselves, because we haven't even gotten to the best part yet.
Seriously, Sit. Down. You are about to see the cutest birthday party ever... 


Not only does Wendy take the most gorgeous photos, apparently she is also the hostest with the mostest. 

This is Bella, Wendys precious daughter who celebrated her birthday with a Disney 'Up' party. And if
you're lucky enough to have Wendy for your mom, then you get to celebrate like this:

{Oooh, I just noticed that the banner fabric is also Bella's pants and #7 fabric!! I bet Wendy made her outfit!!} 

  For Pete's sake, somebody contact Martha!!!

I can not get over this cake made by Kakes by Katie and fondant work by Two Sugar Babies 

Wendy bought this unassembled dollhouse from Hobby Lobby and painted it to look like the Up house.

And they ended the day with an outdoor showing of the movie....
Can you stand it???? To see more of this amazing party go here

Thanks Wendy for letting me share your enormous talents!  And, if you are lucky enough to live in
 Jacksonville, then book yourself a session with Wendy or convince her to design you a party!

Wow! I am seriously choked up because that is the CUTEST PARTY ever! I loved watching Up with my kids and can only imagine how magical that must have been for her daughter. I think I might have to steal some of those ideas! Thanks Shannon for sharing!

ADORABLE frames. Must get one.

Party, adorable, too. Okay, maybe I shouldn't indulge my daughter this year in a Birthday Express Disney Princess party. :)
