Grandpa's workshop

My Grandpa Vern was an amazing woodcrafter. He built baby cradles, rocking horses and highchairs. ( just to name a few things) He also made beautiful grandfather clocks. He had an amazing talent.. and he crafted all this magic in his basement. His workshop he called it. I remember being little and going down and watching him work. Marveling at his masterpieces. It used to just smell like sawdust. But My Grandpa probably hadn't been down there in several years so now it is a bit more storage space.. a little less workshop. When I ventured downstairs the old basement smelled of sawdust and musty air. and you know what? I still loved the smell. I think I'm more sentimental then i realized. While I was in New York, I got out my camera and took pictures of his special spot. Here are a few pictures i particularly love.

This is above the staircase and you go downstairs...

LA county, California, United States
I am married to an amazing man named Ryan. He is the love of my life and my best friend. As of January 2008 I officially started my own photography business, Beloise Photography. I picked the name because it is something that doesn't exist.... something that i wanted to sum up into a word but couldn't. It is the smell of fresh cut grass and hide and seek in the dark. It is a new pair of fabulous shoes. It is fall and all its glory... starry summer nights. Apple cider and fresh picked flowers. Beloise is all that you taste, touch, see and love dearly. The smells that trigger childhood memory's. All your favorite things in one word. A song that speaks to your soul. Sublime happiness. A field of daisy's. Firefly's. Mistletoe. City lights. The smell of homemade cookies. The first snow.... Beloise is about cherishing life. Savoring the moments. Breathing deeply.... and just living...
