you will never believe who i got to photograph????!!!!!
rewind back to my life in 2003 – i was living in dallas with my bff lisa and engaged to derek, and we, among with several other great friends in our apartment complex, were avid followers of the bachelorette:) it was a weekly event. trista was the leading lady that season and i had long picked ryan as “the one.” now fast forward to 2010 and who would have ever thought i would have the chance to photograph their family??!! sooooo crazy FUN!!
trista has teamed up with my vintage baby as of this fall 2010 to design a line of clothing. Her collection for My Vintage Baby is called “Winter Rose” and her sweet baby girl, Miss Blakesly, is sporting one of the pieces below. Max is also showing off a super cool shirt as part of the boy collection that I will certainly be buying for Mr. D! A portion of the proceeds from Trista’s collection will be donated to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Presales will begin August 1st.
so since trista’s partnerned with MVB and i am doing their catalog shoot, i had the incredible opportunity to fly out to CO and take their family photos for the catalog. it was such a fun adventure…all started with finding and securing this dang red couch i was dead set on having. gotta love craigs list and the sweetest lady we found to complete my vision! good thing trista was up for anything since we dragged this thing out to her friends’ ranch to find the perfect spot for these images.
the sutter family was super fun, and truly, i felt right at home with Blakesly and Max because they are literally JUST like my 2 kids. Max is more reserved and all it takes is 10 minutes with him in front of the camera to score a hundred killer shots of a pair of gorgeous eyes. He has the look! And then little Miss Blakesly is so full of expressions and all over the place – a ball of energy and fun and giggles….so like my Miss M!!
here are a few of my favorites from our time together!! thank you MVB and sutter family for allowing me to take part in this event….
