Moody Winter Woodland Shoot

I love details. The more meaningful, the better! The request I received for this shoot was certainly a challenge for me. I'd consider myself between beginner and intermediate when it comes to painting with watercolors, but only in florals and greenery. The photographer and visionary for this shoot, Victoria, asked me to add in an illustration of the Lodge at Legion State Park in Louisville, Mississippi. I was excited and nervous at the prospect of painting architecture, but I really surprised myself and was pleased with how it turned out. Scroll down to see photos of this gorgeous shoot including the lodge illustration.

Miller Farm Retreat Christmas Shoot

This was such a fun shoot to be a part of because the theme was Christmas! I absolutely adore Christmas and all of the festivities surrounding it. This was another shoot designed and executed by the fabulous Trixie Ortiz at YOUnique Events & Design. We incorporated traditional Christmas colors with bits of gold, tartan, and, of course, the beautiful greenery of Miller Farm Retreat located in Mt. Hood, Oregon. My favorite part? That was definitely the hot chocolate bar. Scroll down to see the beautiful photos taken by Miranda Plyler of NMP Images. Can you spy the reindeer socks?
