Excited to share this holiday fashion editorial I shot for Auxiliary Magazine’s Winter 2020 Issue! Model Reagan Marie did her own hair and makeup and I styled with pulls from Unique Vintage and Cats Like Us. Knox Farm State Park was the perfect location! I love the vibe of this editorial and how it all came together.
For my daughter’s 2 Year Portrait Session we did a studio session with a balloon arch! We built the arch for our porch for a social distancing walk by party. Tip, a balloon arch that’s been out in sun and wind all day will not look good in the end. All the balloons were faded and many popped. So we built a second arch. But another tip, get a balloon arch strip because it really is so much easier to make one of these than you would think! The strip was a long clear plastic piece with holes in it to stick the balloon ends through with a slit next to the hole to push the end through to secure it. Last tip, get a hand held balloon pump.
For Odette’s outfit I ordered a few things to make sure it’d come together well. This is actually the backup dress I ordered, the first one had ruffly shoulders and just did not look right on her. You never know what something will look like in person. I got two headbands and loved and used them both. The larger felt floral headband is from Vanaguelite and the smaller from Eliinik. Her cute bird shoes are Livie and Luca and the two shirt is from Romari for Kids.
We had a blast doing these and I had to include some of the ones of us goofing around. Photographing a two year old can be a feat but sure is fun. I can’t believe my little one is two!
My work is on the cover of Auxiliary Magazine’s Spring 2020 Issue and the issue features a several page styled wedding editorial I planned, styled, and photographed! I had been daydreaming about a styled wedding editorial focusing on a bride and her bridesmaids for a long time. One that would highlight the excitement, friendship, and sisterhood. I knew I needed just the right subject to be my bride and when I finally found the perfect fit, she had two family members to be bridesmaids!
