I've teased a feature and shared images on Facebook from a shoot I recently did with a group who I consider to be one of my dream teams. Now, I'm sharing more of the dark, introverted bridal shots from the evening in the woods. I have always loved the dark- appreciated the serenity one finds in it and the calmness there. This particular shoot has been in the works for about a year and the action of actually planning, creating and then going up to Northern Arizona and shooting it was such a fantastic undertaking for all of us involved. In case you missed the June Bug Weddings feature of it, you can find that here. Thank you, thank you to such a wonderful group of people who made this happen!

November 21, 2013 Cleo and Clementine
I love working with friends so much! One of my favorites is Monique Sandoval, owner of Cleo and Clementine. Her work is unbelievably beautiful and her shop is this magical place where I feel inspired to dress more beautifully once in a while. And I love that I can shop locally for friends' birthdays....this is the best place for sweet, little unique gifts. Monique and I have worked on a few projects together this year. Here are just a handful of images from our spring shoot. Hair and makeup by the ridiculously talented Stephanie Neiheisel. Love this girl.

May 23, 2012 Alex Evjen at AVE Styles
Author: Amy Hanen Kym is one lucky girl! She had another chance to work with the adorable Alexandra Evjen from AVE Styles to feature some cute maternity looks. Savers (yes, the thrift store) approached Alex and asked her to do some shopping and inspire some moms-to-be. It can be hard to find affordable and cute clothing when you're pregnant. But leave it to Alex to put together some adorable looks! Along with hair stylist and friend Kim Cornwall, Alex and Kym developed a super cute shoot that showcased the clothing perfectly. To see Alex's full post on her styles and the details of each outfit, you can find her blog post here.
