{Designer Spotlight – Kait Emerson Designs & NuxieMade Hats}

How fun to do a collaboration with 2 designers!  I was excited when Nux, the amazing designer of most all of the hats I use during my sessions,  contacted me about doing a collaboration with the fabulous Huntington Beach designer – Feanna Otta of Kait Emerson Designs.  How fun is that?!   They worked together to make sure their designs complimented one another and came up with the great ‘Fall’ fashions below.  I love the Autumn colors – did I tell you ‘Fall’ is my favorite season {wink}.    Anyway, they even included items for boys.  Nux is working on some more fun hat designs and I can’t wait to see them – as you know, I’m a hat freak – love them, can’t get enough of them!    Anyway, I was thrilled they asked me to photograph their designs!  Check them out at Nuximade & Kait Emerson Designs  ;-)
