{a taste of Fall & a hint of late summer – Boho Style}

Oh yes, I’ve teamed up again with 2 of my longtime favorite designers.  I’ve been working with these two for over 5 years now!  I can’t believe it.  And they still amaze me with their creativity and talent.  Kait Emerson Designs newest collection are great for late summer and early fall – the Boho Collection!  I simply love this boho style and screamed with excitement when I got these in the mail!  I can’t say enough about Melissa of Nuxiemade {designer of the beautiful crochet hat shown} and Feanna of Kait Emerson Designs.  I love you ladies!  Check out these fun styles below and be sure to check out their shops {links on their names} and Facebook pages – Kait Emerson Designs Facebook Page    Nuxiemade’s Facebook Page

{Ingrid B. Design’s Spring 2012 Clothing Line}

It’s SPRING!  And pretty  much summer her in AZ.  And for Spring & Summer Ingrid B. Design’s has made some very fun, color outfits for girls…she never disappoints!   Everytime I see something new of hers I’m amazed at her eye and her sense of detail.  She has a very creative and beautiful eye for fun coordinates for every season.  I love love love the yellow top with the black lace, and the stripped dress (the fabric is so soft}, and the ruffling on her floral skirt…um, perfect!!!  I was lucky to have these beautiful friends of ours help model.  Brielle has a hard time being serious around friends (as you can see in the image above) – most of the time it’s faces that I can’t post here lol.  She’s just a goof which makes it a challenge sometimes lol.  But these three girls work so well together.  Aren’t they adorable?!  I love their different looks.  The girls were so eager to searching for ladybugs so I ended the session early so they could be ‘kids’ and find ladybugs.  Brielle modeled the outfits again the next day so we could get more shots and she fell in love with the flowers that I had set up.  Again, she wanted to find ladybugs so she could put them on the flowers.  Here’s a peek at Ingrid B. Design’s Spring 2012 Collection.  :)

{Rocker Baby Nation: The Raven Collection}

Matilda and I have been working hard on preparing for the debut of her latest baby – the stunning ‘Raven Collection‘.  This new collection  is so well designed.  Not a single detail was left out in her creation – she truly is an amazingly talented woman!  I was in awe over the design, every detail, the black & white combination (it’s still so girly), and the amazing construction.   I’m honestly speechless.  Matilda – YOU ARE AMAZING!  Thanks for trusting me to follow your vision.

{Re-emerging Retro Styles -FaithWorks4U & Florabella}

I feel like I’ve been absent for a while…and I don’t like that feeling.  I’ve been wanting to blog these Retro Dresses by FaithWorks4U – I am in love with everything Faith makes (you’ve heard me say that before).  I’ve probably mentioned this before, but I think I was meant to live in the 70′s – I’m so drawn to this look/era.  Whenever I get clothing to work on for Faith I literally gasp when I open her packages.  My mind goes into la-la land and I envision what I want to do with the dresses and the shoot.  This one was one of my favorites to photograph and Brielle loved her hair in a loose, ballerina bun. On a different note: I get asked a lot about the what I do to get certain looks in my images.  I edit my photos to my liking with my own actions and for these I applied about 10%- 15% opacity using several of Florabella’s Lux II Actions. A little goes a long way.  I also love her newest set Retouch & Make-over.  She really put some critical thought about these actions when she made them.  Just thought I’d mention that. ;-)

This first dress is the ’1970′s Style Square Neckline dress’.

The Simply Sweet Summer Dress.  Love both of these dresses so much!
