Recently I got to shoot some photos for my friend, Brittany Loose. We met at Brewed in downtown Fort Worth which was the perfect atmosphere and location! Brittany is gorgeous, fun, spunky and smart! She also happens to be an incredible writer and she just launched a brand new blog! YAY!! Be sure to check it out and see a few more shots from our shoot there! www.briniloo.com
I am SO SO SO SO SOOOO excited to share these photos of my friend’s precious daughter, Heartlynn Mae. Earlier this year I was able to take maternity photos for her sweet parents, Jaymes & Jordan. I loved being able to take photos of Heartlynn! I was inspired after seeing a photo on pinterest of a sweet baby with flowers in the shape of an oval around her and I knew I just had to do it with Heartlynn. She is an absolute doll and is photogenic just like her momma. :)
While Heartlynn napped Jordan and I set up the floral heart and gathered a few outfits and headbands for her to wear. My favorite outfit was the last one. Jordan’s mom saved a lot of her baby clothes and that’s the outfit she came home from the hospital in when she was a baby. I’m a sentimental person so when Jordan shared that story with me it just made my heart explode with happiness to see Heartlynn wearing it!
Back in June I was able to go to Nashville to visit my sister, Jillian. You may remember the photos I shared of Jillian Edwards a few weeks ago from my trip. It was the trip of all things JILLIAN!! ;)
Jillian will be celebrating her 1 year Nashville Anniversary at the beginning of September. I can’t believe how fast time has gone! I loved being able to visit her and see her in her element for a whole week.
I wanted to take photos of her while I was there to represent this new journey she is on. I’m a huge fan of the TV show Nashville so I knew I wanted to take photos of Jillian on the Nashville pedestrian bridge. (Rayna James & Deacon Claybourne forever, yall! Anyone??)
I love how she just shines and rocks this town! I could not think of a more perfect city for her. From country music to gorgeous landscapes and fireflies…perfectly Jillian. :)
1 | American Apparel’s French Lilac
First of all I’m obsessed with the color Lilac in general. Second of all… LILAC NAIL POLISH. This was actually my first polish to purchase from American Apparel and I love it! I will definitely be buying more in the future. :)
2 | Joanna’s Signature Candle
If you aren’t watching Fixer Upper on HGTV then you need to change that. I’ve been following Chip & Joanna Gaines since I saw the Fixer Upper preview a little over a year ago! I love their style and love for making old homes new again. Don’t be surprised if I move to Waco in the next year just to work with them. ;)
Anyways, THIS CANDLE. I love this scent. It’s very clean and smells just a great as Joanna’s designs you see on the show!
3 | Hey Cupcake!
In June my husband and I got to go to Austin with his family for a little vacation. I was finally able to taste the famous, Hey Cupcake! I got the little sample pack because I’m indecisive and maybe I have a sweet tooth. ;) My favorites were the Michael Jackson and Red Velvet!
4 | Jean Vest
My jean vest quickly became part of my summer uniform! I love how it can be dressy and casual all at the same time.
5 | Voluminous Miss Manga
I definitely fell for the commercial and I have no regrets. This mascara is LEGIT. It makes my eyelashes so much longer! I highly suggest it if you have short eyelashes like me or just want to make your already long eyelashes longer because that’s fun!
I am so excited to share this apartment tour of my best friend and her roomie’s STUNNING apartment! Ashley and Taylor dreamed up the perfect apartment and brought it to life on a budget!
I had always admired Ashley and Taylor’s style even before they collaborated to create such a beautiful space. With the inspiration of Kate Spade to Anthropolgie every detail in their apartment is uniquely beautiful.
Meet Ashley (RIGHT) and Taylor (LEFT). These two lovely ladies are just as cool, creative, and beautiful as their apartment. Be sure to follow them on on Pinterest to see more decorating ideas that inspire them!
Now let’s begin the tour. :)
Let’s start in the living room. The couch, pillows, and mirror are the first thing you see when you walk in. All of the gold is perfection and the fuzzy pillows and shape of the couch just add to their cozy/glam look. My favorite thing about the mirror is that Ashley said she grew up with it in her family’s home. The lamps were goodwill finds that they spray painted gold. Pillows were a mix of Garden Ridge, TJ Maxx, and Marshalls.
As soon as you take in the beauty of the living room you really can’t help but notice and admire the stunning dining area! All the metallics and tufted chairs welcome you right in to sit down for a meal. The mirror is from Garden Ridge, the chairs are from World Market, and the gold polka dot vase is a DIY Taylor made.
This bar cart is a part of their dining room but it deserves it’s own special shout out! They found this bar cart at Goodwill for $20. Let me repeat that … TWENTY DOLLARS. Such a steal. It was brass when they got it and they added a fresh coat of gold spray paint to tie it into the rest of their space. All accessories on the cart are TJ Maxx and Marshalls.
A styled apartment is never complete without fresh donuts. Great job, girls!!
I love that their media center is simple and fun! Full of decorating/styling books with a fun banner above the TV from etsy! (Here’s a link to something similar.)
Welcome to Taylor’s bedroom! I just love how cozy it is as soon as you walk in. Her color palette is warm and inviting plus she has one of those beds you just want to jump on/nap in for hours!
Ashley’s bedroom is the perfect amount of eclectic while still being clean and cozy. I love all the white and silver pillows and her DIY black and white striped curtains.
Ashley’s bathroom is everything you could want in a stylish and functional bathroom. From her beautiful perfume bottle displays to her awesome acrylic nail polish rack and cosmetic organizer you just can’t help but be inspired.
I recently got to travel to Nashville and while I was there I was able to meet up with Jillian Edwards to take some photos. About a month ago I did a photo shoot with her twin brother, Cole, and his wife, Caitlin. (Shoutout to Caitlin for the introducing Jillian and I so we could meet up and take photos!!) I knew I wanted to do a photo shoot while I was in the Nashville area to capture the beauty Tennessee has to offer and Jillian was the perfect model!
Jillian is an incredibly talented singer/songwriter based out of Nashville. From the moment I met her I could tell she is just as sweet as her music! I got to listen to her newest album (Daydream) while editing her photos which made the editing process all the more fun. :)
