Gorgeous Gowns

I sort of fell in love with these dresses, and thought how perfect would they be as bridesmaid dresses? Since most bridesmaids purchase their own bridesmaids dress, why not pick something that is truly remarkable, and that can be worn again to various events, or even shortened into a more cocktail friendly frock. At any rate, these are gowns I'm drooling over at the moment, so don't be surprised if you see them again in an inspiration board, because I'm kinda smitten!

Happy New Year!

Thank you so much for a wonderful 2010, here's to a fabulous 2011!

Haute Boudoir : Marsha, Marsha

Marsha, Marsha, Marsha, what can I say? She's sweet, itsy bitsy, adorable and a downright doll to photograph. She confided that she rarely liked herself in photos, and that she wasn't sure if she could vamp it up in front of the camera without breaking into the giggles. Well, we did a lot of giggling, but man alive, Marsha lights up in front of the lens, and I'm sure her boyfriend was very pleasantly surprised when he opened the gift of his gorgeous girl in print!

Happy Holidays~

Merry Christmas Everyone!
I'll be back to blogging in a few days, but for now, I plan on spending quality time with friends, family, and of course, kittens.

Jubilee Portraits : Those Crazy Twins

I don't know if my two year old nephews, Ethan & Brandon, would recognize me WITHOUT a camera, but a lot of it has to do with the fact that they are so stinkin cute, I just can't help myself! Here is one of my favorite 2010 Christmas photos of them, being their normal, ridiculously cute selves!

Jubilee Engagements : Chelsea & Bobby

Meet Chelsea and Bobby. Bobby is hilarious, and it's almost impossible to keep a straight face around him. Chelsea has a sultry, throaty laugh, which is very well suited to Bobby's sense of humor. Plus, they are pretty darn awesome, so I consider myself lucky not only to know them, but to have the opportunity to photograph them, being, well, awesome.

If you go searching through your closet, I'm sure you'll find a Fairisle sweater in there. Long popular with children, unfashionable moms and holiday sweater lovers, there is nothing wrong with a little fairisle. You don't have to wear Fairisle so it's tongue-in-cheek, you can also look rather chic, with these updated ways to wear the classic winter pattern.
