The lazy […]

Weddings are a time to celebrate, and these stationers understood the assignment. Creating bright, bold, invitation suites can be a challenge and the line between gorgeous and garish needs to be carefully walked. To bring these two very different suites to life, I created a scene using neutral backdrops and props as to not compete […]

New skincare brand, Aluril, needed images to showcase its extensive line of products featuring natural and good-for-you ingredients.

Grand Millennial is my *favorite* decorating style that I’ve been lovingly welcoming into my home decor and styling. If you’re unfamiliar with the aesthetic, it’s a combination of your grandmother’s wallpaper + antique oil paintings + a few modern pieces here and there to keep it fresh. When photo styling, keeping current design trends, color […]

Inspiration for photoshoots can come from anywhere – books, movies, tv shows, and real life. For this shoot, I drew inspiration from a combination of my favorite stories and authors to bring to life what I imagine Jane Austen’s Secret Garden would look like. The result is a whimsical photoshoot that highlights the wedding invitation […]

French macarons have long held a special place in my heart – after living in France for a year the sweet treat became a favorite of mine. I’ve tried making them myself (with very little success) and rely on the experts for beautiful, delicious macrons like these from Maison Laduree. Macarons: Maison LadureeStyling & Photography: […]

There are so many pieces that need to come together to create a beautiful flatlay, but it all starts with a strong foundation- the styling surface! Selecting the right backdrop sets the aesthetic and tone for your shoot, and can absolutely make or break your final images. When deciding on a backdrop, consider the mood […]

As you may have heard, I have a lot of feelings about styled shoots. As a former wedding stationer and calligrapher, I participated in dozens of styled shoots and was on the receiving end of every scenario – the good, the bad, the ugly, and the completely forgotten (yes, sometimes the stationery is forgotten completely!)
