Working with Ciera Kizerian on this styled shoot was such a blast! Ciera and I grew up together, so when she approached me with the idea for this shoot, I was an automatic in! Styling the shoot was so fun and I love the way it came together. We shot in the Hickory Street Annex and it was the perfect fit for the look we were going for. The people at the Annex are so kind and helpful. If you are looking for a venue in DFW, they are a top contender! The inspiration for this shoot was found in this classic china. I knew I wanted to do bright florals, so I needed something to contrast them. I love the way the colors compliment each other. All of the furniture rentals came from Beautiful Event Rentals. That rug is serious #ruggoals.That cake was made by Frosted Insanity. Not only did it look amazing, but it tasted incredible! I am kind of in love with this naked cake trend, because it gives the flowers a lot more attention. I’m always up for more flower power. The flowers I used in this shoot were David Austin roses, dahlias, ranunculus, vandella roses, and eucalyptus. The garland rocked my world. I had a vision for it, but it turned out even better than I had imagined! This styled shoot is a perfect first post for the new year. It’s fresh, vibrant, and crisp. I am looking forward to this new year both professionally and personally. Our little business grew a lot last year and we’ve worked out a lot of hiccups and growing pains. Personally, we experienced a few more valleys than mountains than usual, but are hopeful for a happy and healthy family this coming year!
