Fashion LookBook Shoot
Gypsy Outfitters

The team and I had a wild time photographing for boho chic clothing & accessories brand Gypsy Outfitters with gorgeous model Mylen. Our client's vision was very free spirited, dirty feet and wind in the hair. Together we chose an intimate little cabin in the Santa Cruz Mountains that had the most amazing creek right out the back door. This was our first time working with Stylist Grace Jeramie and OMG she freaking nailed it! We are so grateful to share our vision and can't wait to shoot more fashion elevating the overall brand with our art!

Personal Branding Shoot
The Sketchbook Series

We were approached by our dear friend, Mary Phan who wanted to a little extra slice of fabulous to elevate her new baby, The Sketchbook Series brand. Former Wedding & Event Designer, Mary has embraced her creativity and began teaching other event planners and designers her unique and illustrious ways of communicating with her clients. Because this is such a personal brand and service, we decided the best place to shoot would be her Alameda studio. She brought all of her favorite pieces and we had a blast with creating different looks embodying what the Sketchbook Series is all about. Whenever I think of Mary, I see a bright effervescent smile and charismatic personality, so we of course had to capture than, but like most artists, she often gets mesmerized within her work and we wanted to also show the calm in her too. I'm so proud of how many people you have already touched and inspired with your talent and first hand knowledge. I got to take a mini sketchbook series class for an Oh So Inspired Retreat I attended and I have to admit, I daydream of pretty prints I could be making - I actually plan to take a class and bring my mom and sis with me for a fun girls day! Check out Mary's travel schedule for a class near you, could be a prefect gift for the creative lover!

Old Shanghai

Getting a call from the ladies of Old Shanghai to photograph their 2015 Lookbook for their beautifully hand painted silk kimono robes was such a dream come true. I LOVE photographing lookbooks & fashion campaigns, and I just knew that this was going to be such an amazing project. Of course we wanted to capture the luxury and feeling you get when slipping one on, but we also wanted to emphasize just how necessary they are to live a fabulous life! Little luxuries like these soft beauties can only make you enjoy life's simpler things that much more. And who doesn't love something that is so versatile, you can even through it on over a t-shirt and jeans!

I knew when assigning a stylist to the project that I wanted someone with a bold, yet refined sense of style and I just knew Emily Jayne Scott was who I wanted to work with for this! I just love how the robes seem to float on Jossalyn, so soft and dreamy to go with the perfect styling for the mood. I hope you enjoy!

Game of Thrones
Designer Baby Shower for my baby sis

When we found out my baby sister was having a little boy, I knew that I wanted to have it somehow revolve around her and little prince. Along with our husbands, we are both huge fans of the show Game of Thrones and I am absolutely in awe of the sets and costumes, I seriously dream about the fashion. So when brainstorming about how to theme my Little Prince Baby Shower, it clicked! GAME OF THRONES!!! Not cheesy or gory, but like a big celebratory feast with lots of candle light, fresh fruits, loaves of bread, wine flowing and accents of brass and dark jeweled tones. I had the idea to create a wall feature with some personalized banners just for Lindsay and Drew, the first, a silhouette of a German Shepard with the ears tweaked larger to resemble their own Shepard mix, Sadie. The second banner had a 'W' for their House Name, and the final a Viking hat to signify both of their Nordic ancestry. PJ worked with a combination of her treasures and mine adding in leafy greens, berries, and citrus from my backyard. For lunch we served 'Pigeon Pie' (hand-made by mom and dad) which were little chicken and apple stuffed hand pies, Potato Porridge, and a fresh Spinach Salad. And how amazing is this cake we worked with Katrina Rozelle to design?! Perfection! This was hands downs the most beautiful event my mom and I have ever thrown and there is no one more deserving of it than my little princess.

Hudson Joseph

Today's Blog Post is dedicated to my sweet little nephew Hudson 'huddy' who turns 1 year old today! This time for me last year, was sort of bittersweet. We had found out we were moving to Kansas City about 6 weeks prior and were planning on moving just a week after our little boo was born. Selfishly, I was hoping he'd arrive early(safely), just so I could hold onto him a little bit longer before moving halfway across the country. Life, like it always does, seemed to have worked itself out as it took a little longer to find our house and we got to enjoy 2 full months with him!

My sister entering motherhood has been such a dream to watch and my little nephew is seriously the sweetest, coolest little guy we ever could have hoped for. Even though we are so far away from him, thankfully my work has brought us home often and we've had many sleepovers together. My kids are obsessed with him and we couldn't be more grateful for this little guy. I'm sorry I'm not there today little boo, but we love you soooooo much and can't wait to squeeze you!

Alright so let's talk for a second about my little sis and the amazing nursery her & her hubby Drew created together! Hudson's California Indie inspired room boasts a reclaimed wood wall, freshly painted retro vintage dresser, a DIY Camel Rocker made from a Vintage Tufted Chair, a Navajo & Faux Fur Rug, and a collection of art & accessories from Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, Home Goods, and Hobby Lobby. I got to come in at the help and help out with the styling. I just love how it all came together! Happy birthday my sweet boy, we love you so much!
