Beach Dwellers

I recently had the pleasure of spending some time with my brother and sister in law and their adorable children (plus one on the way) at their beach cottage on the west coast.  I have always loved how they do this whole life thing and also love telling day in the life stories.  They were gracious enough to allow me into theirs for a spell……..sea breeze and sunshine, calm and chaos, parenting and coupling, style and authenticity, work (Dan is an attorney and Mia runs the show at home for now) and play….they balance it all so beautifully.

Paper Dolls & Flower Dresses

I feel so fortunate to be surrounded by friends and creatives that will jump into silly projects with me.  A quick text with a rough sketch to Sarah Winward and we had this fun concept in the books.  These image were made by hanging flowers by nylon string in the foreground of the frame and pushing our lovely model far into the background in slightly different light. These are not composite images.  Finding this difference in focus and subtlety in light helped us to create a feeling of a flat paper doll with a three dimensional flower as a dress.

So, so fun. Just the perfect project to match the spring lightness I’m feeling in the air!  Thanks to the inspirational, real and amazing Sarah and also to the talented and adorable Gabby Gabbitas for making our model, Taylor Harmon, look the part so beautifully.  Since these photos didn’t highlight her amazing styling we took some portraits of her wrapped in organic beauty, actually in focus, which I’ll be sharing later.

Meg and Jono – Featured on Utah Bride Blog

These two…….I seriously had to stop myself from jumping in and bear hugging them like every five seconds.  They are just the sweetest.  So much affection was present at this wedding, not just between the couple.  The love could tangibly be felt like a cozy blanket around the entire wedding.  I am so happy to see these two published in the Utah Bride Blog Magazine and also on the UBB today.  Here are some of my favorites from the day.
