Rarely am I in front of the camera, nor do I really like to be. I'd much rather be behind it! But I always have an inspiration for our shoot and Gabby always makes it come to life! And oh my, she worked her magic again. When I thought about what I wanted for our session, I had envisioned something whimsical in golden fields! I didn't plan on having snow but it still worked out amazing. Of course Joanna Gaines gave me some inspiration! When I received the winter issue of the Magnolia Journal and saw how stunning she looked on the cover, I knew I wanted a long dress! I fell head over heels in LOVE with furs at Shelley's wedding that I shot in December! She and her bridesmaids looked swoon-worthy in them.


As for my hair and makeup, I wanted Hollywood Glam. I met Chelsea back in September at a wedding I was photographing in Pinehurst! I was mesmerized by her talent and knowledge of makeup and instantly knew I had to snag her for my next shoot! I knew she could complete the look I was going for and she didn't disappoint!
