Slipping into the long weekend ...

First dance lyrics from a bride to her groom on their first wedding anniversary.

Itching to create a backdrop like this again. I love using paper as a medium but a departure now and then is refreshing.

Invitation pieces pre-assembly. These are heading to as part of the first collection of curated style boxes.

This suite is was created for an editorial, but I still want to tell the story of the couple we are creating.
This couple loved old school romance and history and the groom was a botanist. They got married in a beautiful garden setting here in Portland that had romantic stone steps and a reflecting pool.
For the suite, I used a soft edged handmade paper, and sweeping calligraphy at an angle to capture the romance and elegance they loved. Also I included botanical illustrations and a botanical art piece (not pictured) to echo the grooms love of plants.
Even for a styled project it is still so impotent to tell a story!

Thank you to everyone who joined in the live story about styled shoots. I hope that it was informative, but remember that I am only one person with one perspective. I was definitely nervous at first so thank you for bearing with me. If there are other topics that people would like to discuss please let me know. I love being able to help others with the experiences that I have had - the good and the bad.

Accidentally deleted this the first time! I do not show my face much and do not really share all that much about me here on Instagram. I feel like people really just want to see the pretty things that I create and could care less about who I am or what I have to say so usually my captions are vague and short, which may unintentionally come across as aloof or cold.

I do not have the charming personality that I feel like really connects with people on a wide platform such as this. I am a fairly calm, introverted person and I tend to keep my thoughts more private and only share with my close friends. I am much more comfortable in a small group but have been pushing myself to share more on stories, but I find myself second guessing that all the time.

Lately, I have been struggling and feeling a little discouraged and directionless and I decided to join @jennakutcher’s course about Instagram to hopefully learn to engage with my audience in a more meaningful way.
The challenge today was to share three things about yourself. So for anyone who cares to know, here they are:

For anyone who likes personality tests, I am an INFJ and each section is over 70%

If I listen to music while I work, it will be a Broadway show or a film score.

I do not like chocolate, but I do love Jelly Belly jelly beans and know all of the 50 flavors by sight.

What about you? Are there any other INFJ’s? I feel like it is a rare combination.
