I’m so happy to introduce a fabulous photographer today, Shalonda at Chubby Cheek Photography in my hometown of Houston! She says her home isn’t fancy, but I love her beautiful picture displays, her cute turquoise furniture, the fact that she framed school work of her daughters, and confused why she thinks her home isn’t decorated enough–love it!

Howdy lovelies! My name is Shalonda, aka chubby cheek photography. I am a child and family photographer based out of northwest Houston, TX I have to admit when Kristen asked me to be a part of her decorating with pictures series I was sort of nervous…okay well ALOT nervous! You see, while I have a lot of different creative bones in my body, the “decorating bone” was one I was born without, ha! But where I lack in decorating skillz I make up for with my addiction to that warm-fuzzy-ooey-gooey-stars-in-your-eyes feeling when I see my family and particularly my girls images in print! I am that person who walks through the house at 6:30 am with a cup of coffee and a silly grin on my face, not because i am crazy (well I am a little crazy) but because constantly see’ing these MEMORIES on my walls take me right back to that moment! A few years ago I started the “every day project” with my girls, its sort of a low stress, guilt free, fat free, version of a 365 project :)….well anyways these every day images of them being them, of moments in our days, of our REAL LIFE, are “where its at”. Having these images up in my home and better yet walking by them on a daily basis truly feed my soul as a photographer and crush my heart into a million pieces as a mommy. These images are a true representation of my journey and how it has come full circle, I mean my girls were the reason i ever picked up a camera in the first place, which kickstarted this business 6 years ago and having these images of my girls are a reminder of why i do what i do! My point…yeah here it is…no matter what type of camera you have, no matter how professional you are or aren’t, DOCUMENT your days! And no matter WHO you are GET IN PICTURES, I am forever grateful for all of my photographer friends who have photographed my family and me with my babies! See that big canvas down there in my dining room? One of my best friends Melissa Anderson Photography flew all the way from ohio to take that among a tons of other incredible ones that I will cherish forever. Fill your home with YOUR art, your moments, YOUR LIFE!

So enough of the sappy mommy love stuff, lets get to the goods! So a few things you might notice 1. i am a true canvas addict! Oh yeah baby I may need a support group someday but for now Ill just pass the ones I rotate out down to the grandmas šŸ˜‰ and 2. and I really really really love turquoise and pink šŸ˜‰ 3. I have pretty awesome friends who “got” the decorating bone šŸ™‚ 4. I am no home photographer i prefer the super hyper running around like crazy 4 year old type
