Forgot to blog about my girls ski trip to Big Sky in December. One of the most beautiful places I have ever been. We skied, snowboarded, snow shoed, and wore matching PJ’s. It was perfect. Thank you, Kelly, for showing us a good time and sharing your special place with us. xo
We just returned from KEY WEST, FLORIDA! This little island was perfect for a few days of exploring, relaxing, walking, riding bikes, eating and drinking and soaking up the sun & culture. Roosters wake you in the morning and freely roam the streets, cruise ships from all over the world embark on a day of fun, street performers, drag queens, snowbirds…a melting pot of cultures embracing the laid back culture of the island. I hope you enjoy my pictures and get a feel for KW!
Meet Kiley, and her husband, Steve. Kiley and I have been working together the past year, shooting for PAISLEY BOUTIQUE in Webster Groves. Lets just say it was love at first click. There is something magical that happens when we work together. Can’t explain it.
I was feeling the need to create. For me. No pressure. No paying client. Just go out and shoot and see what comes of it. I called Kiley and told her to get dressed and meet me at the fair ASAP. Before date night, they rode the ferris wheel and celebrated their 10 year wedding anniversary for me all over again. Hope you enjoy these as much as we do. xo

I've been photographing Sam every summer since 2014 in Hyannis port, Mass. He is my buddy and I look forward to it each year! We spent the night cruising in his 1957 Chevy Continental, visiting Squaw beach, and Hyannis port Pier. His family has the tradition of vacationing on the Cape each summer and I am so lucky to be able to capture these moments for them.
My friend, Stephanie, and I took a trip to Cape Cod so I could do a little work (will post those soon). We spent a day on the island of Nantucket, exploring on our mopeds, found a foot trail along the coast, saw the 2nd oldest lighthouse in the U.S., and all of the immaculately landscaped-wood shingled homes in Siasconset.
A few years ago, I was introduced and fell in love with Campbell, a 13 year old photographer from Oklahoma. We have been planning to shoot together since we met and it finally happened. We called Evie, a local teen model, for our retro roller skating themed photo shoot in the Grove. Campbell's talent is simply incredible and I can't wait to see where she goes. You are a shining star, Campbell, with a heart of gold. xoxoxo!

And can we talk about how amazing Evie is!!! Follow her @evie_theodorou on Instagram.

Every other week I get to work with PAISLEY BOUTIQUE and model KILEY KOZEL. Stacie, the owner of Paisley, allows me to do my thing and photograph her clothing in my own style. When the 3 of us work together it is MAGIC. Here are a few pics from our last shoot.
A few weeks ago we took the ferry over to Grafton, IL. WHO KNEW!?? Such a fun day trip. Think Sturgis meets Destin, Florida meets the Mississippi River. The town and people were amazing! Flee markets, Jimmy Buffet playing on the speakers, live music, good food. See below some of the places we discovered and people along the way.
