Our Photo Session with Erin Jean Photography (sparkle, sparkle)

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of shooting with my dear friend Erin of Erin Jean Photography. I was ecstatic at the opportunity to have photos taken with this guy (get this! we have no pictures of just the two of us alone together on our wedding day!) and so contacted her immediately with all my big ideas. All Phil originally needed was some sort of husband/wife shot for his job ...  and I ran with that! Turned it into a full blown gorgeous opportunity to get some romantic shots with my man. Lucky me. 

Now be warned, there are a million pictures that I really love, so I posted all million of them. Sorry friends. But also, let me just tell you that this shoot really made us laugh a lot cause we were all sorts of awkward. I am used to having pictures taken alone but when you have to do a lovey dovey, make out with your guy shoot, well, it can be all sorts of strange origami-esque arm-wrapped-around-his-head-while-he-kisses-your-shoulder-and-you-look-wistfully-into-the-distance sort of stuff happening. You'll notice in the last shot that we exaggerated the intensity just a bit. ;) I think most of it looks sweet and natural but it's all due to Erin's magic hand and incredible eye. 

Thank you Erin for our pictures! We are so in love with them. You are so amazing at what you do. 
This last picture really shares the true authenticity of a romantically natural moment, captured. ;) According to us.

Ageless Fashion {for YOU magazine}

Hello lovelies! I want to share all the photos from this fashion story I put together for Green Bay's YOU Magazine. This Beauty Issue is out on news stands now! 

It was a blast working with these 3 fabulous women and a huge, huge thanks to them for spending this afternoon with me. They represent 3 age groups for this story, the 30's, 40's and 50's and do so stunningly. Whistle whistle right?! :) I wanted to keep them very natural for this shoot so their makeup was done in such a way that it just enhance their natural beauty, rather than adding layers and layers of cosmetics to cover it up. It was very minimal and they look incredible. 

We walked around through our little downtown, grabbing shots at some of my favorite spots, in looks that I'm really loving for the end of our beautiful summer. Pieces that still work for any heatwave days that linger on but transition so well into those early fall days that eventually slip in. In August I'm still loving all those deliciously warm summer styles but I begin to crave them in autumn colors. So this olive green and bronze-y color combo has my heart. :)

Enjoy! (creds at the bottom of page)
Thank you to all who helped make this shoot so lovely!
