Farm Shoot Teaser

I spent an entire day last week on an icy farm in Snohomish with a team of some of the most creative and enthusiastic folks you’ll ever meet. We alternated between huddling over a tiny campfire (my coat still smells of wood smoke) and styling different scenes for the very talented Chantal Andrea to photograph. I can’t say too much more about it, but will let you know that my newest design partner-in-crime Sally Balt of La Happy, makeup genius Jenny Bowker and a talented chef/manager from Ravish, Luke McKinley, all  played a part. Can’t wait to share the images but in the meantime, here’s a preview from Chantal.

Sneak Peek Farm Wedding

Sorry the posts have been so sporadic lately. It has just been soooo busy around here (but it’s a great problem to have and I’m not complaining too loudly). There are some fun fall weddings and events in the blog lineup so look out for those over the next few weeks. In the meantime, I’m heading out to a farm in Snohomish tomorrow to style an editorial with an amazing creative team that Chantal of Chantal Andrea Photography put together. Grant and I were over in Spokane for Thanksgiving where I found a veritable treasure trove of vintage lovelies and I’m dying to put them into action. I hope the sun will keep on shining but I’ve already loaded up the car with wellies and rain gear just in case. This is the Pacific Northwest in November after all!

Here’s a peek at what else is going into the car…
