These are a few photos from a shoot I did with Cassidy Roney. I’m a big fan of Cassidy; she’s hilarious, smart and has such an amazing style. Oh, and I forgot to mention the obvious – she is insanely beautiful. It’s been a while since I’ve had a shoot with just the model and myself. Most of my recent shoots have a had a bigger crew (assistant, hair, MUA) so it was cool to go back and strip it down to how I started – just me and the model driving around and hanging out while shooting. I find it easier to connect. I forgot how nice it was to relax, have no where to be, and have nothing to do but take photos. To me, it’s a much nicer experience, however the help is appreciated and needed at times with a bigger production. Go follow Cassidy on Instagram! @CassidyRoney.
I didn’t discover Kristene’s beautiful vocal chords until a few weeks ago when I saw her live. I stood next to my husband as we both agreed on what a rich beautiful voice she has. The song “Take Courage” spoke directly into our lives at that moment in time. I have heard it in my mind daily since. “He is in the waiting”. I couldn’t need that statement in my mind more right now.
Turns out, not only does she have a beautiful voice, but she has great style, a beautiful home, and a beautiful family. (See her instagram: @kristenedimarco) I love these photos her good friend Stephanie Soh took of her in her Goldmorning gear. Stephanie is such a talented photographer, and you can see more of her work here: Stephanie Soh, and follow her on Instagram here: @stephstephsoh Thank you for these beautiful images Steph! and for being so kind.
Hello dear readers of this blog! I won’t say I’ve been away a while because this is just becoming the norm, right? I have so much I want to blog about but the days just get away from me. The entire month of May my husband and I were away for work (Wilhelmina Weddings). We traveled from Florida to Alberta (Houston for a DAY) to the Dominican Republic & New York. We are finally settling into normal life… for now.
My husband and I were in Key West this weekend to shoot a wedding (Wilhelmina Weddings), and the rehearsal dinner the night before. This is my second time to Key West and not my last. We have another wedding there coming up later in the year! It was, however, my husbands first time. I have to admit that I wasn’t as impressed with Key West my first visit as I was this time around. I think it had to do with the weather, our schedule, but most of all the company. Happiness is certainly better shared.
A few corners of our humble starter home. I’ll be uploading a few more pictures as I go. I’ve got just a few more projects to work on until achieving completion design wise, but I appreciate it for what it is right now. I can’t quite capture the sun when it drenches the place and the cool breeze that fills each room (when it is actually cool outside.) We are surrounded by trees and when the wind blows all you see are branches moving outside the window and the occasional squirrel fight. Sunsets on the couch are my favorite. It’s not perfect but it’s ours.
Goodness this ten day challenge of mine has been difficult. I even fell back a day! I have to catch up now because I’m behind a day. Moving back to once a week after this will be nice 🙂 There honestly have been moments I wanted to quit but thankfully I’ve got encouragement in the form of a husband telling me to keep going and also from readers who have been giving me positive feedback. Thank you so much! It means a lot to me, especially right now since I’m picking up the pace and really going for it. Thank you all so much for the kind words encouraging me to press on.
I’ve gathered up the given questions from both Instagram and Facebook and am going to copy them all here and answer accordingly! If you have a question that you do not see answered here, leave a comment and I will be more than happy to add it to this list when I get the chance! Lets begin..
Just blogging about a little fashion, what else is new? Being a lady never goes out of style, so if you dress like one, I don’t think you’ll ever find yourself looking back at old photos thinking “What on earth was I wearing?” I definitely enjoy the excitement of a new trend, how fresh and fun you can feel following it and seeing women look amazing when they really pull them off. However, I will always love and favor a simple classic style in every way – dressy, casual, edgy, girly.
Hello! Some of you have requested info about the couch covers I’ve been talking about and posting photos of on my instagram. I’m going to answer your questions about it here in this blog post! I found an amazing amazing deal on my current couch that I couldn’t pass up. The down side was that I had truly wanted a light gray or white couch and this one was beeeeeeiiiiiiggeeeeeee. I figured it was neutral so how bad can it be? Well, awful! I hadn’t set out to fill my home with such warm tones, but seeing as the couch was such a massive focal point I felt I had to move in that direction if the decor were to make any sense. Stuff like this can and will drive me crazy; I’m not sure if anyone else out there shares this struggle, but if you are and you’re reading this, I FEEL YOUR PAIN. Anyhow! About a week ago I started cutting the warm tones in my house and it helped a little, but still, there it lie – THE BEIGE COUCH, staring at me, bold, fluffy and just THERE. The wheels were turning in my mind for days. The best I could come up with was buying a big linen table cloth to throw over the couch so I purchased fabric online. I thought it could actually look really nice – an organic, draped, linen look. It was difficult to imagine so I crossed my metaphorical fingers and hoped for a styled look rather than a cheap wannabe look. I’m not sure how that story would have ended because my plan changed and I never experimented with simply draping it. While laying in bed one night, I thought of a different way to cover the cushions, making the couch look much more legit. Here’s how:
