{capturing birthday memories in photographs}

Once upon a time, long, long ago…I was once this small. And no, this is not me pictured above.

But that was many moons ago and this week as I celebrate my “37th” birthday – it’s a fun time to reflect back on so many previous birthday memories.  My girls were talking about last year when they completely draped the driveway in crepe paper so I couldn’t pull in when I got home from work.  Then there was the year my husband had them write Happy Birthday on my cake with my age and had them cross it out and correct it twice…oh, that was SO funny.  Not.

Capturing memories in photographs is really important to me.  It’s one of the reasons why I love this blog because it gives me reasons to take and share casual snapshots and stories that I think my kids might enjoy reading someday when they are my age and looking back.  I wish I was a better photographer…like Britt who took all these awesome snaps on this post.

Well, my birthday surprise to you today is…a wonderful photography session from Britt Lakin Photography.

What I LOVE about Britt is that she is very passionate about the environment.  At home she composts, recycles, reduces, reuses, shops for items with sustainable packaging, and drives a hybrid.

This was my snapshot of Britt snapping us!

“I feel that it is very important for businesses, even small ones, to be sustainable.  It excites me that I can extend my efforts into my photography business.”

As a consumer, I love supporting businesses that are green.  I know that my dollars are going towards supporting a green industry and that my demand for businesses to act in sustainable ways will put pressure on ALL businesses to act green in order to stay competitve.  Britt does it because it’s just who she is and I love that!

So jump in the giveaway and good luck!
