Style Me Pretty + Chinet | Summer Crab Boil

Last summer I shot a really fun shoot with Style Me Pretty for Chinet. Think, pretty pink peonies + mini pie ice cream sandwiches + boiled crab + endless amounts of your favorite summer brew. With the help of of Chinet, we threw one of the prettiest & easiest crab boils you've seen! Check out the SMP blog for all the details.

Finding Lovely Surprise Party in Cali

It was such a gift to travel out to California to shoot for my friend Jackie from Finding Lovely! She threw her mom such a beautiful surprise birthday party! Jackie's attention to detail is impeccable. She really is the best at throwing a party! Some of her mom's oldest and dearest friends traveled in just to celebrate her mom. How amazing is that?  Thanks Jackie for inviting me out to California to capture this special memory for you and your family!
