I have always been fascinated by photography. I have spent countless hours studying photographs of people, while considering the angles, the lighting, and the editing the photographer used. I love the fact that photography has the amazing ability to transport us to a different time, or place with one single shot.
It was not until I started blogging that I decided to take photography more seriously. With camera in hand, I started experimenting with photographs of my apartment, of friends, and family. It was after experimenting in this way that I realized my passion for photography. I have no formal training or background in this field, but I realize that passion can open your eyes to the impossible, so not only did I invest in the proper equipment I also spent the necessary time to learn everything I could to enhance the skill it takes to be proficient with this passion.
I enjoy, and appreciate the opportunity to photograph bloggers, couples, influencers who make an impact in their profession, families, and also lifestyle type setting. I take an individual approach to each person I photograph. I make every effort to embrace and highlight the focus of what they are trying to convey to their audience with each session.
I look forward to working together and capturing the potential magnificence of your moments through my eyes and the lens of my camera.
You didn’t think I could just show these Maison du Soir constellation pajamas once, did you? I honestly loved these so much I had to share them again. I won’t chat much about how amazing they are because you read that last week, but I had to make them fresh in your mind! I seriously believe every closet needs a pair of Maison du Soir. So girls, ask for your birthday, Christmas, stocking stuff, Valentines Day, a “just because,” shower gift, any reason you can think of! I promise you will be happy you did!
Stay tuned for Paris and London! In the mean time check out her website, Maison Du Soir
Oh, Maison du Soir you never disappoint. I was obsessed with this pair. Stars and constellations have always been my thing. Growing up, if I couldn’t sleep I would walk out to my balcony and watch the stars. Or if I had a sleepover I would make my friends bring blankets to the boat dock and lay out there and look at them. I was also that kid who haaad to have the glow in the dark stars for my bedroom – the ones you would stick to your celling with putty (lucky parents). There was always something so magical about stars and the formations they created. I can still remember seeing my first shooting star. Usually I am over dramatic when I experience new things but I was dead silent when I saw it and kept it to myself. It was such a special moment to me, why, I am not sure, but it just felt so enchanting and something I wanted to remember for forever and not waste my time on the celebratory antics.
I always hated growing up in a small town and had such an itch to leave. I couldn’t wait to be “metropolitan.” But like anything, the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. One thing I find myself missing dearly is looking up and seeing a vast sky lit up by the stars. It is so sad to look up at the sky and not see all of the bright stars sparkling back. Since I am missing this magic moment I decided what better way to fill the void than by wearing them? I am continuing my Maison du Soir series today in Normandy and with the Constellation collection. Since Normandy is a quiet and small town I decided the Constellation pattern would be perfect. The nights there are so beautiful and still, you can’t miss the stars even if you tried. We stayed in a beautiful Chateau right outside of town. The weather was cool so we slept with our windows open, which was a perfect way to view the stars. Although I am back in Dallas, I am still wearing my Constellation top and pants and wishing I was somewhere quiet and still so I could see the real thing! Until then I have Maison du Soir!

I love white. I love wearing it, I love it in homes, I love seeing it in photographs, I really just love it. White is clean, fresh, refreshing, airy, and light. So, if I am this drawn to it, why do I find myself in dark colors? My bedroom is a midnight blue, a majority of my closet is black, and I love dark nails. I preach for the love of white but actually only practice in all things dark. Okay so that sounded morbid but really, I love dark! I think in theory white sounds amazing but I love a little color in my life. I need a little color in my life. Yes white is all of the aforementioned but when it comes down to actually living and breathing it – isn’t it a bit vanilla? You know, a little too sterile? I think there is always a place for it in your life but a girl needs some color!
If we are talking in color, I am definitely more drawn to darker hues. They feel comfortable, cozy, chic, and daring. So instead of a home or wardrobe in white, which is aspirational, I am sticking to my darks. At least for now! And luckily, I have found a new boutique where I can have it all. I can have my dark now and save the whites and brighter colors for later (shall I ever change my mind). This new place is oh so inspiring and has me dreaming in color combinations. My favorite right now? Dark, dark green! Isn’t it just luscious? I could wear it, live in it, and decorate with it. While I can’t share the name of this new boutique yet, I will spill the beans soon (and in a BIG way) but for now just know, they are changing the beauty scene! I was able to preview the colors early so I can’t wait to share more! I hope you all like what I got cookin…
