can't wait to see you there!

you're only young once

a shoot like the one that follows, is styled specifically for the young women of 2016.  

free spirited, natural, but full of style....and yes, you are only young but once...


do you know what energizes a creative person's mind to overdrive?

i'll tell you - 

other creative people!

when you have the opportunity to dream and work with people who dream and work like you do, there is no limit to the wonders you can pull off!

fortunately, i am one super lucky girl to have many creative friends.  

i got to team with two of them a few weeks ago:

the first, Jennifer Jackson - Torrell at Brady Street Florist.  Jennifer is well known for her incredible and unique floral work.  she designed the floral crown, the garland, bouquet, and also brought those INCREDIBLE peonies (yes those ARE real!).  

flower crowns are HUGE right now.  it was so fun to be able to shoot with these.  

secondly, Lindsey Taylor with Honeydew Vintage.  this girl never ceases to amaze me with her business sense, and her talent.  when working together, lindsey often hangs around for the shoots, and seriously, it is like having another set of hands attached to my brain!  lindsey has tons and tons of vintage furniture and pieces that we used to pull off this hip, sought after boho look!



you asked, so i'll do it!

this friday:

i'll be shooting in the beautiful open loft area of the dubois harley davidson shop.

teaming with brady street florist and honeydew vintage rentals, we will be offering a styled shoot, open to ANYONE (not just seniors!).  

it will be a gorgeous, light boho feel with vintage pieces and floral crowns and accessories. 

i squeezed in a few more spots, so if your interested, be sure to get on the list!

i've never done this before!!!

i am thrilled to offer my first ever STYLED SENIOR SESSION!

i have the best colleagues ever and we are teaming up!

BRADY STREET FLORSIT AND HONEYDEW VINTAGE are coming together to do a one of a kind styled shoot for seniors!

you'll get a 20 minutes session and 5 different poses 

HONEYDEW VINTAGE will have 2 sets for you to choose from:

the first - a boho inspired set with a weathered white peacock chair, layered rugs, twinkle lights...

and BRADY STREET FLORIST will have floral accessories to hold and wear!

headpieces and flower crowns :)))


the next is a deep yellow mustard velvet settee, surrounded by tables, florals, lights and rugs,

all shot in the top floor of the historic dubois harley davidson building :)))!

the details of the shoot are listed below!

spots are already filling quickly and i only have a limited amount available!


einstein and love...the Kohlhepp / Gunter wedding

it was the 2nd wedding for the family in 8 months. 

i had the honor once more to freeze their moments. 

two incredibly smart, kind, and most loved people.

 albert einstein was quoted in the ceremony...

they spoke of scientific terms that i cannot pronounce...

so to honor them, i'll have to use the master's words once more...


 The laws of gravity cannot be held responsible for people falling in love.

Albert Einstein


How on earth are you ever going to explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love?  -Albert Einstein

When you sit with a nice girl for two hours, you think it’s only a minute. But when you sit on a hot stove for a minute, you think its two hours. That’s relativity.  -Albert Einstein

 Love is a better teacher than duty.  -Albert Einstein

When you trip over love, it is easy to get up.   But when you fall in love, it is impossible to stand again.  -Albert Einstein


congratulations you two!
