When Mikie at Hair by Mikie asked me to help her with photographing some of her hair and make-up creations I jumped at the chance! She does beautiful work and I wasn't disappointed - there will be more of these to come soon.
Like these? I update regularly photos and invitations and designs on my Instagram.

What a lovely day to wait for the trains. This inspirational photoshoot happened in front of the very lovely Union Terminal Cincinnati, Ohio. Built in 1931 it created the perfect backdrop to transport us all back in time.

I adore calligraphy and it is one of my goals in life to learn the art. However until then I will simply have to look upon those who have mastered it and enjoy their skills.
My favorite at the moment is this lovely place card created by Jane Dolan.
This has been one of my most popular items recently, seems lots of people are in a autumn bohemian mood! These would be a perfect set for the bride and groom to hold in photographs after the ceremony or hang on the back of their chairs!
Best part - they are printable! So they fit your budget whatever it might be :)

A night on the town at the Netherland Plaza, circa 1933. The vintage Bette Davis gowns, luscious Veronica Lake curls and suspenders that would make Marlon Brando proud.
All Art Deco designs were created by yours truly. I wanted to take the architectural lines of the Netherland Plaza and use them as inspiration for some beautiful true-to-the era invitation designs. The lines create almost the illusion of a structure behind the words.

In colors of turquoise, splashes of blush and fuchsia and tinges of sunshine yellow this bridal shower inspiration shoot drew from a vintage 1950's vibe.
