Wedding Sneak Peek - Merci "a la parisienne"

For those of you who don't know what etsy is stop what you're doing and check it out! It's a buyers and sellers heaven for all things homemade. I was searching through the site a while back trying to find fabric flowers for my wedding cake when I came across a little shop by Mandy called "a la parisienne". As I looked through the products the shop had for sale I fell in love and thought that she would be the perfect person to design the fabric flowers I was looking for. I immediately contacted Mandy to see what she could create for me. When the fabric flowers arrived they were gorgeous! I couldn't stop there so I gave Mandy an idea of what I was looking for with the ring pillow and again she executed it beautifully. 

After she posted the flower and ring pillow on her blog I learned that we were both inspired by a Dior black and nude fashion collection for our design concepts. It was such a coincidence and perfect match. Mandy, if we lived in the same state I would have to become your best friend : ) Thank you for your beautiful creations, you were such a pleasure to work with. Check out her blog

Karina's Tea Party Photo Shoot

My friend Lia wanted me to take some photos of her daughter Karina to use for her 3rd birthday party invitation. Lia is very much into design like me, so it was a lot of fun collaborating with her on the props and ideas. The birthday is going to be a Tea Party so we wanted to center the photo shoot around that theme. Karina was definitely a character, always running around and wanting to do the opposite of what we asked of her which is typical at her age haha. I think her personality really came through in the photos. Happy Birthday Karina!!!

Luci's "Just for Fun" Photo Shoot

Everyday I pass this orchard on my way home from work and I was dying to take pictures of someone in it. I was lucky that cute little Luci volunteered! Luci is going to be one of my flower girls when I get married in September and I can't wait to see her running around in a tutu. It was a SUPER sunny day in the middle of February so it was a real challenge working with all the shadows. I had so much fun spending the day in the beautiful and vibrant orchard capturing precious moments of Luci and her parents. Thank you Talene and Hagop for allowing Luci to be my model for the day. Enjoy!
