Kristybee Photo Giveaway

I found Kristy's shop last year and fell in LOVE with her photography! Her photos are so light and airy. A couple weeks ago I won one of her photos.

I picked this one and have plans to put it in my bedroom.  (I am working on redoing my bedroom)

Here is a little about the photographer behind these beautiful photos...1. Tell us a little about yourself...
I like to describe myself as a jeans, white tee-shirt, flip flops kind of girl. I live for summer, the beach, bright sunny days. I love vintage cameras and everything French. I am the mom of two beautiful daughters and I have a wonderful husband.

2. How long have you been doing this?
You could say I have been into photography most of my life, but only in the past couple of years has it become something I can make money doing. My camera comes everywhere with me..even if I am dropping the kids off at school or going to the grocery store. You never know when you can become inspired.

3.Who/What inspires you?

I am inspired by people.. my family, my friends, nature. Little things, like the way the light hits my coffee cup in the morning.

4.What's your favorite piece?

Wow..that is a great question. Honestly..my favorite piece is whatever I am working on at the moment. Most of my favorite shots are of my kids at the beach or my husband just sitting having his coffee. Quiet moments like that.

5. What advice do you have for a beginner?
It may sound cliche', but take pictures of what you love. Follow your heart and don't worry about rules. Plus...use natural light as much as possible..you will never be disappointed!

The picture w. the bubbles, hands down, for my daughter's room. She loves bubbles. I also like the one w. the fan, summer memories. So pretty!
