So fun photographing Ella’s 13th bday and setting up a photo booth for her and her friends! I love documenting my clients growing up- she was 9 months the first time I photographed her! This party was gorgeous and delicious thanks to her talented momma, Jill, who owns Catering Works! Please call or email if you are interested in photos at your next bday celebration:)

And a second photo shoot this month for another long time friend and client and one of her best friends who also was celebrating her 10th bday! They had their makeup done, fun (fake:)) party tattoos and then were surprised with a photo shoot! Next it was dress up in gorgeous clothes for their movie-star inspired photographs!!!

 November has flown by! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I had a sick husband and sick dog, but I still did some serious cooking and made the best of it! I have found a new tradition in my house and feel like I need to share the find! Check out this amazing cake recipe for brown-butter pumpkin layer cake! It was crazy decadent and soooo delicious! The perfect comfort dessert!  http://www.finecooking.com/recipes/brown-butter-pumpkin-layer-cake.aspx

So this weekend I also caught up on a bunch of work! Ted, my husband, and I were accepted into the Rock and Shop Market that will be in Durham next Saturday, Dec.4th, from 12-6. I am so excited! I haven’t done a show like this in about a year- I am really looking forward to it! Ted will be selling his photo frames that he makes out of recycled materials, and I will have photography and my MoodSwing jewelry collaboration.  There will be local food available, great music, and a ton of amazing artists! Perfect for holiday gift giving! Oh and I almost forgot.. Local beer from Fullsteam Brewery. I can’t wait to try the Sweet Potato Amber!

Vignettes: A Series in Wearable Heirlooms by Mood Swing and Elizabeth Galecke Photography

What a whirlwind few weeks it has been! Between holiday work, Chix in Business and a new collaboration, my head is spinning! I wanted to write a little about this new collaboration with my good friend, Kristen, aka Mood Swing. She makes the most incredible jewelry- and I am so excited to be working with her on these necklaces. 

I have a bzillion personal images that I have taken over the years. I love to photograph these little “Vignettes” – usually landscape or architecture-in my time off- capturing quiet moments- filtering out distractions both in my mind and through my lens. This time is a complete contrast to my everyday shooting of families and children, where things are loud, wild and playful, sometimes bordering on out of control:)  I have tried different ways to produce these Vignettes, using Polaroid transfers as well as printing them small, straight from the negative. But these necklaces are so perfect at framing this work and displaying  it in a way that fits the vision of how I see them. Looking into the concave lens(a vintage eyeglass lens) that mimics a camera lens, surrounded by soldered metal that has been oxidized then waxed- you see a tranquil perhaps almost haunting  place. I have the images printed as giclees- using archival inks.  They are wearable pieces of art- built to last and hopefully loved a long time too! 

Right now you can purchase them at the Collector’s Gallery in downtown Raleigh, a mod, all- glass building, right next to the skating rink- …443 Fayetteville Street. They are open Tues-Sat. 10-6 and Sunday 12-4  The gallery sells beautiful glass, pottery and jewelry- most are local and regional artists. Check out 

They are hosting an open house on Monday December 14th from 4-8 pm! Stop by and check it out!
