"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."

Is this real life?

Happy (almost) Thanksgiving beautiful bloggers! This is absolutely my favorite (and I mean FAVORITE!) holiday, which is ironic since I am not much of a foodie. But I truly love the atmosphere of a day in which everyone focuses on the blessings in their life and how many positive things are happening. Plus, I am such a family person so I adore when I can be surrounded by tons of family members and reminisce about past holiday memories. I actually sit down every year and write out a thank you list to all of the wonderful people in my life and tell them why I am thankful for their friendship. Those of you who follow me on twitter have probably seen me talking about this list a lot lately, and it is a tradition that is very near and dear to my heart. I like to think that it spreads a little Holiday cheer to my family and friends, and isn't that what this season is all about? 

To continue in the spirit of thanks, I would like to use this entry to give a shoutout to two of the people who have helped make this blog possible: my lovely photographers Katie and mom! Not only are they incredibly patient with me as I experiment with outfit photos,but they are both wonderfully supportive of my dreams. And they just so happen to be very stylish ladies themselves! We are always showing each other glamorous photos of models and celebrities for style inspiration, but I wanted to share some photos of real life women who inspire me daily, not only with what they wear but with how they live life. So without further adieu I present to you my lovely, talented and ever fashionable camera women!
My pretty, sassy momma! I love how she mixes classic and eclectic pieces to create a uniquely timeless look!  
She is my rock and truly the strongest person I know! I learn more from her every day and she is the perfect example of a woman who knows how to balance work and family. I hope every day that I will be half of the mother she is. 
I have always admired her style! She always cares about how she looks and how she presents herself to the world. She showed me that fashion is about more than just blindly following trends- she showed, by example, that true style is about experimentation and wearing what makes you confident.  
Ya you pop that foot girl!
The real photographer of the family (and the person who inspired me to learn!) happens to be my adorable little cousin! And lucky for both of us, we are like exactly the same size in almost everything! Aka we can raid closets! 
Before we did my photoshoot from last weekend's post, I took some more senior pics for her and because she is so gorgeous, they turned out great! She looked perfect in her comfy jeans, tee and boots and my new bomber jacket perfectly completed her edgy every day ensemble! 
Photography is easy when you have beautiful subjects!
The lake behind our house was the perfect background. 
Love ya doll and appreciate all your help!
She has such a young spirit that I couldn't help but take a few shots of her on the playground!
So now you have been introduced to the real magic behind this blog! My darling photography wizards, I appreciate your help, patience, inspiration and love so much! Thank you both! 



  1. Such wonderful outfits!

  3. They're fantastic! I love that they know how to work both sides of the camera - modeling and photographing. :)

    My sister is my main photographer. It's been a joy to watch her style develop just over the past few months. Her personality bubbles over the top and into her clothes, so I love to feature her style on my blog, too!

    Happy Turkey Day! xoxo Hannah

  6. First of all, I love your blog! Second of all, the details on the bomber jacket are gorgeous. Third (although it has nothing to do with fashion) the backgrounds you use in the photos are amazing, the fall colors are so pretty.
