{vintage. fall. my favorite.} commercial shoot: FaithWorks4U

Words can’t express enough how in love I am with FaithWorks4U clothing.  Faith, is a designer genius who’s brought back styles from the 1960′s and 1970′s.  I’m simply smitten with them.  I think she’s tired of hearing that but I can’t tell her enough how amazing she is.  Anyway, here’s some of her designs available now in her shop – all ready for the fall season.

{Project 26 – ‘jumping for joy!’}

For this weeks Project 26 I thought about the theme and was instantly reminded of our Mexico trip last year.  Since we’re getting ready to go again I thought I’d post some pictures of the kids jumping in the waves last year.  My kids are so excited to go to Mexico each year they start packing weeks in advance.  This year I’ve convinced them to start with a packing list before tearing their rooms apart in an attempt to pack.  I think I have held them out so far – fingers crossed ;-)

Please be sure to click on all of the links to complete the circle of these talented ladies I get to meet with (virtually) on every Project 26 day.  Jessica Deane is one of my favorite photographers…check out her vision for this weeks theme.
