Prop Destash… who’s coming?!

Posted under Photoblog, Random Fun

As we close our Retail Studio doors May 1st,
(no, we are not quitting just closing the retail),
we have a LARGE stash of photography props that will not be of use to us anymore.

Looking for unique items?
Want new props?
Local to the Palatine, Lake Zurich and NW Chicago burbs?

All gently used, in great condition… and coming from probably one of the biggest prop stashes ever (lol).

If you are interested in joining us, please contact us directly as the location is a private home.

In addition… we will be hosting a Matilda Jane TRUCK SHOW this same day.
So come shop our PROP DESASH and check out the new MJ line as well!


*no shipping, all items are pick up only… first come first served.

This weekend… grab our DSLR “How to Learn your DSLR Camera” Guide for only $99!!!

Click >>>HERE <<< to read more and purchase… or just click the “add to cart” below!

Whether you are mom-tog, aspiring photographer, new DSLR owner… or just something looking to refresh their own photography professionally or hobbyist… I have created this guide for a fun & whimsical take on the “ho-hum” guides you may have seen before.  This is me… goofy & silly, letting you into my own world (professionally & personally), and showing you how I capture images of my own family & clients.  I tried to make it light & free, while keeping it educational and easy to learn from.

This guide was created 4 years ago, and recently I have set aside time to revamp, liven up, and make some new additions to the Live Laugh Click Workshop GUIDES!

just for the fun of it…

Being a photographers daughter, my middle one is more then used to a stop in the park on a pretty night (when we are supposed to be grocery shopping!)

Snapped these last night, what a pretty sunset.
She surely keeps me inspired…
and smiling!

In fact, you can thank her for my love of photography as a whole.
I’ve always had a camera in hand, since a child…
but when she was born… that loved blossomed into what is now my professional career!
