Pancakes and Pajamas Kid's Party

Madilyn is turning 7 on Sunday and I wanted to share her fun party from last year. It was such a fun party to plan because the older Madi gets the more opinionated she gets. She planned this entire party with me and I was pretty impressed. She picked her color palette first because she knows that is typically where I start on my design projects. Her favorite type of food is breakfast so we decided on a pancaked and pajamas theme party.

Tin Can Photo Lounge | Jacksonville, Florida Photo Stylist

Hi strangers! Things have been busy around here in the best way. My plan is to catch up on blogging and share the fun projects I have been so lucky to be a part of. First up is a promo styled shoot that I did for Jaime Smith of Couture Studios and now Tin Can Photo Lounge. When Jaime announced her new business venture I was so excited that she would be bringing such an amazing idea to events in the area. I was hooked! You will see why shortly. I styled three different looks to show folks how amazing it would be to have Tin Can at their wedding or social event. It was a lot of work but it was the most fun I've had working with a client. You can read more about the photo lounge here.

First, I styled a children's birthday party. I wanted it to be fresh and lots of fun because that's what Tin Can is all about! Jaime had her photo clients come model for us and oh my word were these kids the cutest!

Next, I styled a fiesta with friends. I used a lot of items from Set Rentals and the group we photographed was so fun! I wanted to incorporate a Southwest style so I planted some cacti and succulents and bright colors with the fringe that we hung.

Lastly, I designed a wedding tablescape that was laid back but still sophisticated. There really isn't much that Tin Can isn't good for. It would be a blast at any event!

Valentines Day Elopement {Featured Styled Shoot}

A few weeks ago I had the chance to collaborate with several amazing vendors in the wedding industry. I know it isn't nice to play favorites but I have to say that Shea Hopely Flowers and J.Lane Photography definitely are a few of my favorites. Shea is a true artist when it comes to floral design. She thinks outside the box and stays on trend but still classy. Her flowers always blow me away and she is as sweet as can be too. Chelsi and Justin are the owners of J.Layne photography. They are an adorable couple and their work compliments each other. They both have a great vision and their photographs are beautiful. They were a lot of fun to work with and if you are looking for a florist or photographers for your big day you can stop looking now.

Chelsi came up with the idea for the shoot to be a valentine's day elopement. She used an adorable engaged couple, Stephanie and Cody who are really getting married next year. They are gorgeous together and so evidently in love. I had an amazing time working with everyone and I hope you enjoy the photos!
