It was an honor and delight to shoot this collection awhile back. Shooting fashion has been on my mind for awhile now -- wanting to test a consistent approach, just with a different subject from my usual work. It all came to fruition and this first dabble at it has definitely left me itching for more.
I've somehow managed to not post for 6 months. Not surprising, but thankfully because I've been keepin busy! Here are a few snippets from a few jobs I've especially enjoyed over the past several months.
It's been so fun working with my sister on some of her gorgeous finished projects -- LeSueur Interiors

It's happening again : 'blogging'.
Since I've had 3 fruitless attempts with this whole 'blogging' thing (painstakingly realizing that it's just not my bag), I've decided to simply not call this a 'blog'. So smart, I know. It's good to lie to yourself sometimes, right?
So, here is quotidien; this is the French word for 'daily, everyday'. The English equivalent is 'quotidian', which obviously is not nearly as sexy as the French version. I am starting this in an effort to keep things interesting, current, and to ensure those who are perhaps interested in working with me that I am actually working.
I, unfortunately, am not going to guarantee posts everyday, but can assure you content will be of what is happening in my everyday life -- work, travel, cooking, family & friends, etc. -- the same kind of content as would be in a 'blog' or 'journal'.
All of that to say :
I've had a few cool jobs as of late that I'd love to share now, but am not allowed to quite yet. So instead I'll share what is actually more awesome than work : my honeymoon!
For the whole month of September, my husband and I took a gratuitous (yet entirely too short) trip to Europe. He did all of the planning, and kept it a surprise until departure... which I'm sure freaks some people out, but I could have not asked for a better scenario. We went from exploring Istanbul; to lying on beaches around Nice; to ferrying over to Corsica where we drove through cliffs, down to beaches, through forests and into vineyards; to ferrying over to Italy, where we had one night and a midnight dinner in Florence, then trained to Senigallia for good friends of ours wedding, then went 'glamping' just outside of Venice; and then spending the last week eating and drinking our way around Tuscany.
Sounds lame, right?
I continue to live in denial that the trip has now long since come and gone. Super difficult to get back into the swing of things. #woeisme.
Here are a few photos, one from each destination:
Istanbul --> Nice --> Corsica --> Florence --> Senigallia --> Venice --> Tuscany --> clean plates (of many, many clean plates) :
