I loved stying this shoot for many reasons! I got to play with lots of pretty jewelry made by local designer Carden Avenue. I chose neutral airy lightweight fabrics to highlight and focus on layering the beautiful necklaces. Who says to many pieces is too much? Always choose a center piece and work around that! You can see the stone in the sandalwoods as well creating a focal point! Neutrals can mix and match with everything and can be a staple piece to always gravitate towards! Great for Summer layering and those parties by the pool....
This was a super simple but elegant shoot. This is one of my first just beauty photoshoots and focusing on accessories to add that perfect styling mix. Loved the classic look "Tiffany per say" added with some edge and a shot outdoors with some perfect pieces from "The Perfect Pair" in Green Hills! Loved every look and really enjoyed the Team!

Summer is always a time to have fun and visit with friends and family. Hope everyone had a safe holiday enjoying the ones you love! This shoot was extra special styling a team of father, son, and daughter! We had fun eating, and playing dress up for a spread in Country Music's Greatest Eats....
This shoot was a favorite! The concept I envisioned for this was a mix between light and dark "Tron vs. Swan". The airy light feel is portrayed with the cage netting and white gloves vs. the dark black sweater. This allowed for the perfect mix. The spread appeared in Her Nashville.
This shoot was also part of The Mall At Green Hills campaign. The styling was simple and elegant. I loved the use of glass to cast a reflection but representing your true self is what I wanted to convey. We all have a dream world that we wish to be in however, here I wanted to showcase wearable and affordable beautiful dresses, sparkling jewelry, and suiting.

I was lucky enough to style a campaign for The Mall At Green Hills. Below are some photos that reflect poise, confidence, and flair! A lot of staging and creative direction went behind the scenes to create each look and was a lot of work but worth every minute of it! Shots were taken throughout stores in the mall and wardrobe was pulled from stores in the mall as well!
Summer is in full swing now and we are all ready to hit the pools! This shoot was full of beautiful swimwear and the perfect model! I loved the contrast of the high waist bottoms, the pops of color, and the details of lace. Come on and take a dive into these gorgeous looks with me...

Here are some of my favorite summer looks I styled! When the weather is hot you still need to look good. From bathing suits to pretty dresses you will see some great ideas to beat that Summer heat....
This shoot was all about creating a feel and a cloudy state of mind. Cool vibes and edgy looks was the goal. So fun working with Kink Ador. Styling this shoot was very different and I enjoyed getting to know the musicians and listening to their music to get the perfect disposition for the overall ambience! Check out the images below. Let me know how it makes you feel?
This photoshoot has been one of my favorites to style and help creative direct. Two models, double the looks, and two different concepts merging them into one! Strong geometric lines and black and whites shining through was the look for one model and trench coats and layers for the other. However, the tricking part was pulling the looks to merge together for "Double the Fun"! Check out the final photos below. I have a favorite, what is yours?

Here is just a glimpse into some of my favorite projects I have styled.....
Musician, Nora Jane Struthers, a beautiful girl with pose and sophistication, was a joy to work with. We went with a balance between simple and elegance for wardrobe.
The Nashville Scene Fashion Issue is always fun to style! Playing with bold colors and structures was the theme and staying on trend is a must!
The last photo features The Henningsens. This was a really fun project joining with CMT/Southern Living for their Music City's Greatest Eats. Who doesn't love food, fashion, and learning what the celebrities's favorite recipes are?
Heading Back of House for a look into Jason Wu's Fall 2018 Collection, was such a great experience! Take a look into what happens behind the curtain. So much fun, chaos, and exhilaration! Took place at the beautiful Nashville Symphony and was so fun to be a part of Gus Mayer's production team for the show!
Hair and makeup happening... Line up for the models...

The makings of a photo shoot has lots of prep work, and I am excited to share some behind the scene photos. The theme for the shoot consisted of strong geometric lines and black and white combos. We also played around with some trench coats, which will be popular for the spring weather! Can't wait to see the outcome when the final photographs are revealed!
