Mother's Day Sessions

Mother’s Day, of course it took on a whole new meaning when I celebrated my first mother’s Day as a mom two years ago.  As moms we are rushing and running and doing for the people in our lives, it’s tough to remember that behind the bottle of homemade all-purpose cleaner and the lunch box full of organic snacks is a beautiful strong woman.  Making just a few moms feel like the gorgeous, strong ladies that they are was my entire motivation for partnering with Anika of A. Fatourous Photography and Monique from We Make You Up.  A few weeks back we had a beautiful event celebrating a few special moms, we hosted a mini session event at a studio in Ossining.  I had the honor of dressing our moms up and creating flower crowns to make them feel extra special.  Monique lent her magic hand for the hair and make-up, and Anika captured all the beauty.  We also had mimosas and snacks waiting for the mamas and babes to keep everyone happy.  I am so in love with these photos and the beautiful moms have told me that they are too.  Thank you, to all the mamas who came and got their photos taken.  It was a special honor to help give you this Mother’s Day gift.

Announcing Mother's Day Styled Sessions

Mother's Day is coming up and we want to celebrate all the beautiful mamas out there!  It's time for us to get out from behind the camera and capture these moments with our littles.  We want to make you feel beautiful and special, so I have teamed up with my friend, Anika, of A. Fatouros Photography to do just that and offer styled Mother's Day photos.  I have pulled some beauties in the way of dresses, I'll be making up fresh flower crowns, and styling you up pretty.  That coupled with hair and make-up services will make you feel ready to get in front of Anika's magic camera to capture the love of you and your babes.  Just look at these gorgeous mama's and their beautiful babes!  

And dads, if you've found your way to this post, a PSA that this package would be an EXCELLENT mother's day gift.

I Love Love Mood Boards // Wes Anderson Inspired Garden Party

This mood board has been living in my head for so long, I am so happy to put it out there in the world.  The interesting color combos of the Wes Anderson movies are so very inspiring, of course that's where I started for this mood board.  No Wes Anderson-inspired event would be complete with out a heavy dose of whimsy, for this event, that comes in the form of an over-sized garden of paper flowers.  I picture a dapper groom with quirky accessories and a bride with big personality, perhaps even a patterned gown.  This beautiful couple will be surrounded by adorable children, for a day filled with love and laughter.

Woodsy Bohemian Elopement // Styled Shoot

You guys, I am so so excited because the styled shoot we did a few months back is finally live on one of my very favorite blogs, Inspired By This!  I've shared a few photos of this epic elopement shoot, but I've saved some of my favorites for right now!  

The inspiration for this elopement came from the beautiful, scenic backdrop.  I wanted to contrast that with bright pops of color so the table and flowers really stand out.  I love the idea of an enchanted picnic in the middle of the forest, like you walked into a well-styled episode of "The Bachelor."  I recently travel to Morocco and while the look isn't overly Moroccan, I brought back some stunning textiles that all make an appearance in the shoot and prove that bohemian can be bright and colorful.

Caitlinn Ramsden captured my vision better than I imagined in my head.  And Kelly from Beaurust Flowers nailed it!  That bouquet is out of this world!!!!  And, can we talk about the floral chandler!? 

The Rue de Seine gown from Lovely Bridal could not have been more perfect.  The exquisite metallic hand beading was just the right amount of edge.

The leather elopement sign and custom backdrop are all available in my Etsy shop.
