This shoot was just a “Hey- wouldn’t it be fun if we…” conversation that turned into reality. I can’t help but brag on Kim… I am constantly in awe of her creative prowess. I have no idea how she can turn a few dollars of thrift store bin finds into this. She hand-made the crown, the necklace… the amazing dresses. And I am lucky enough to be a part of it… add a couple of my favorite models and it is perfection.

PS… My Define School class opens tomorrow! I would love to have you sign up and spend three weeks together delving into shoots like this, inspiration, the love of the craft. We’ll have weekly lessons and homework, a private FB group to chat in every day and lots of soul searching and fun… see ya there! :)
How would you like a free day at one of my workshops? I was talking with Lexi (from one of my favorite magazines… Lemonade and Lenses. I just recently did The August Collaboration with her!) about our upcoming workshop in Cincinnati on July 21st and we decided it would be really fun to give away a spot!! Since we are using the PunchTab entry below there are tons of ways to get entries so lots of chances to win… please just be sure you can come to Cincinnati on July 21st (although this is a transferable prize so you can gift it if you want to enter for a deserving friend). This give away is a $500 value and will end next Wednesday, June 27th so go ahead and enter as many times as you can and I will keep my fingers crossed for ya ;) Can’t wait to meet one of you!
And because no post is fun without pictures… here is another feature from the summer issue of Dreamer Journal. This one was a really fun collaboration between Peppercorn Kids & ZozoBugBaby (you’ll be seeing more of this perfect combo in the coming months) ;) Perfect summertime backyard fun…

I am spoiled. Kim & Alyssa came again to help me out with a shoot (I don’t know what I will do with myself on my own again!). If you love the props, be sure to check out the Prop Shop (Kim’s new baby where she will be selling all of her amazing creations), they’ll be there.
Jenn Davenport drove up from Kalama to hang out for the day. I just love when you meet someone that you instantly connect with (even better when they live on my side of the country!). She was an absolute delight and we had such a fun day hanging out, talking shop & playing in the studio. Thank you for coming and I can’t wait until we can do it again… :)
