"We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” – Maya Angelou // Melina modeling the Sexy Endeavors Corset in pearl white with Jovial Cute Rhinestone Sandals in silver for @3wisheslingerie. My assistant was @melissabatzer.
I'm a rabbit in your headlights, Scared of the spotlight, You don't come to visit, I'm stuck in this bed… - U.N.K.L.E. // Jessica modeling the Zip Front Halter Bodysuit with Masquerade Rabbit Mask for @3wisheslingerie. Fun fact: it was 30-something degrees out. This girl is a rockstar.
“I can’t think of any better representation of beauty than someone who is unafraid to be herself.” - Emma Stone // Melina modeling the Fringe Fantasy Chemise dress with Hot Spots Peep Toe Pumps in blue. My awesome assistant was @melissabatzer! Check her photography out!

"Skiing combines outdoor fun with knocking down trees with your face." Jessica and I did some product photos for @3wisheslingerie up on #mtspokane in the frigid cold. If you're interested in modeling with us for this company, get in touch with me!
I am preparing to celebrate the one year anniversary of signing the lease on my downtown office space. (yay me! 🥂) At the time I signed the lease I was not fully self-employed and I didn't exactly know where the adventure was leading, but I knew I was one step closer to reaching a huge long term goal. (winning!) BUT, can I tell you a secret?? I rarely go to the office! 😳 Sure... I meet with clients and I always have a quiet sanctuary to run off to (should my family drive me bonkers), but I sorta have this thing going with my laptop, and we really like working from home, with little to no makeup and snacks just one room away!
As a small business owner I'm constantly second guessing decisions and I wonder if the overhead cost is worth it in the long run... I discussed this topic with my creative lady friends today and the consensus was: KEEP IT!! (for now)
SOOO, if any of you are interested, I have access to a large conference room (which would be great for workshops), a cute little space that could work for retail, pop-up shops and more, plus a great (and very talented) neighbor: @jacobgreif
Please PM me or shoot me a text if you want to discuss the possibility of sharing said space!

Gah.... gushing with excitement, to find out that we were in "Seattle Bride & Groom" Magazine! Love SO much to see our little Happy Camper Photobooth there on pg 42. 💕😵! This was such an incredible wedding that we were blessed to be a part of @thelyonbadger ! @estateatdestinyridge @megan.leigh15 @haileejae27 @elizabeth_kaylam @kelseymichlig @kristinabea @sonja.b__
Earlier this month, I had an awesome opportunity to contribute some table numbers and wedding invitations to a styled photo shoot coordinated by @kayleenmichelle. The vendors were amazing, the decor was amazing, the venues were amazing—and man, are the pictures AMAZING!! Everything, clearly amazing. Go see them on Kayleen's Insta and on her site, and check out the vendors below. I also grabbed a couple featuring my work and put them up on my site under Wedding Designs (link in bio). I can't tell you how excited I was to add them to my portfolio!⠀

Almost a year since we said "I do" in beautiful Montana! And we managed to capture our little fur babies in the craziness of everything! Mickey is our goofy boxer boy, who is a cancer survivor and rescue pup from Florida! Lucy is our lovable lapdog, also a rescue pup, but from California. They drive us crazy sometimes, but they're also always there for us and bring lots of joy! 📷: @rebeccahollisphotography
Earlier this month I had the crazy idea to organize a styled shoot, one with a "green" theme which would produce images to feature throughout the month of March. I was blown away with the positive response from local vendors and we ended up doing two styled shoots, one in CDA and one in Spokane! This is one from our Riverside Place shoot and I so wish I had a "behind the scenes" shot of my other model, @akauds, trying to hold the light diffuser and battling the wind! She did awesome though and check out the light on @taylorraedillard's face! So nice!! Nice work to all and thank you all again! (Vendors tagged.)
Spokane friends, if you haven't yet, you MUST check out @themcginnityroom. They're a brand new venue in a gorgeously renovated historic building in the heart of downtown. Their beautiful, open event space features huge timber beams, brick walls, and a gorgeous (and gigantic) bar with Guinness on tap! We helped create this seating area in their lobby with a nod to their Irish roots🍀 Check them out and give them a follow!
I haven't been this excited about Friday since last Friday! 🍀😂💚 I've put in a good 50+ hours on the computer this week and processed over 4000 images! What a week! Now, off to Montana for an "unplugged" weekend!! ✌🏼
Doing it Vanity Fair style in CDA with these lovely ladies! More green for your feed! 😘🍀💍

This little gem is such a simple addition to any guest table! Check out Sarah's designs and follow her feed.
Found these old books, a vintage ring box and the dyed silk ribbon at a local antique mall... the stone broach was a gift from my grandpa, and it once belonged to my late grandmother. ♥️ Isn't the delicate beauty in little treasures like these just so wonderful? Where do you go to find your special trinkets? I found mine on Monroe, in Spokane, WA. ☺️
