into the deep

I'm so in love with this shoot. Not only did the images turn out beautifully, but it is the last shoot our amazing art director, Cassidy, dreamed up for Hour. She's moved on to greener pastures, making this, our last shoot together for the magazine, bittersweet. I've absolutely loved working with her - we have an amazing creative rapport - and I'm truly going to miss working with her (at least for now - I'm sure our creative paths will cross again in the future!).

This was also a fun shoot from a styling perspective - everything had to work with that amazing tail! That meant blouses that could be tied high at the waist, jewelry that looked like seaglass, and bags in blues, greens and sandy neutrals. The accessories shots weren't in the original shoot plan, but I'm so glad we ended up including them. I think they add to the overall story, and it's always nice to see some pieces up close and personal. Check out the full shoot below and in the April issue of Hour Detroit, on stands now!


motherhood at five (and a half) months

Time is moving so fast lately. I am definitely starting to realize just how quickly babyhood passes, and I'm doing my best to savor every moment with Graydon. He's growing up so quickly, right before my eyes. It's amazing to watch him become more and more of a person each and every day, to see his personality blossom. He's the most incredible little person, and it still blows my mind that Jon and I made him.
