Happy Customers

I love seeing my fine art photography prints in action. A recent customer of mine sent me a photo of her new gallery wall with amazing photos-- and mine is included! Take a look!

Kimberly also had this to say about my print:

Beautiful print, timely delivery, just what I needed. Truly a crisp image that does well at larger sizes.
— Kimberly

My print, the larger tropical leaves print on the lower left side looks amazing in this collection. I love the colors, I love the simple white frames, and I love the layout!

Thank you Kimberly for sharing your wall, and your sweet words.

New Year, new look!

Notice anything different around here? Did I loose a few pounds? Awww! Thanks for noticing, but no, that's not what I'm talking about. No, I didn't get a haircut (this time.) Give up? My website got a complete facelift! I spent the last few weeks upgrading to Squarespace 6, revamping my website, and not working on my goals...

So, why the redesign? I wanted a home for that would showcase my photography and paintings. What? You never knew I painted? That's exactly why I needed to do this. For the longest time, I felt like I could only be a photographer, or a painter. Like I couldn't combine the two parts of me in one place (don't cross the streams!) I think the saying "Jack of all trades, master of none" comes into play here--as if I couldn't do well at both endeavors, I had to pick one.

Well, I'm crossing the steams, baby. Here I am. April Bern-- Photographer AND Painter.

So, what do you think? Love it? Hate it? I'd love to hear your thoughts!

22 things I'm thankful for this year

Happy day after Thanksgiving! I hope yours was as awesome as mine was. I made a breakfast Strata that I swear was made with unicorn tears-- it was that amazing. Seriously. I spent a lot of time with family (both mine and G's) and ate a lot of amazing food. Food so delicious, it should have been illegal.


Today, since I'm still in a food coma, I wanted to take a moment and share my list of 22 things I'm incredibly thankful for (in no particular order)

1. I'm thankful for my family (even my new family!) I love them.

2. I'm thankful my grandma still has her health and that I got to see her and spend time with her this Thanksgiving.

3. I'm thankful for my husband (it still feels weird to call him that...)

4. I'm thankful for my job and that it's something I really enjoy doing.

5. I'm thankful for my beautiful house. Even though I complain (A LOT) about how far away it is, I still love it. Especially when the sun streams in through the windows.

6. I'm thankful that my friends and family are really and wonderfully supportive of my creative and artistic endeavors.

7. I'm thankful that I can pursure these creative and artistic endeavors!

8. I'm thankful for coffee. And really, you should be thankful that I have coffee. Trust me.

9. I'm thankful for my garage and dishwasher. They are the two things that I didn't think I would like when I moved into my house. Now, I don't know how I ever lived without them.

10. I'm thankful that G has a job that he loves and that he's incredibly happy with.

11. I'm thankful that I have amazing friends. I'm calling you out Livi, Debs, & Rachel. You guys are awesome and I love you!

12. I'm thankful that we can afford our house and vehicles and still have a few $$ left over to eat real meals.

13. I'm thankful for my car that is super reliable and gets me around.

14. I'm thankful that my job is flexible and lets me come in early and leave early.

15. I'm thankful for my team at work. They are really a wonderful group of people and are a lot of fun, no matter how many fiascoes or sunova's that happen.

16. I'm thankful I get to take photos of products for my real job.

17. I'm thankful for our photography business. I get to take even more photos and help people remember important stories in their lives.

18. I'm thankful for the beautiful area I live in, again, despite how much I complain about how far away it is.

19. I'm thankful for Zumba. I suck at it, but I love it so much!

20. I'm thankful for pinterest. I would not be as adventurous in the kitchen without it!

21. I'm thankful that G eats my culinary creations and knows not to ever complain...

22. I'm thankful for our trip to Hawaii. It was truly awesome and the trip of a lifetime!
