Work // 2015 Portfolio Faves

The end of the year is prime time for lazy blogger round-ups, so I’m taking full advantage of that and presenting a list of some of my favorite styling work from the past year: Lady of the Hour (Cincinnati Wedding, Winter 2015) [caption id="attachment_5717" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Photos: Annette Navarro[/caption] Favorite because: The noon look (that hat!) and the pink leather jacket + feathered gown combo on the cover are right up my alley. I would totally get married in...

How To // Planning for Magazine Editorial Coverage

A few weeks ago, I was in a shop pulling wardrobe for a series of photo shoots, and the store owner asked me: “Is this for December?” I was floored. “Oh no, that’s been finished.

Work // Cincinnati Magazine April 2014

The April issue of Cincinnati Magazine is on newsstands, and I have to say: putting this one together made me feel like a big kid. With several kid-focused location shoots, a playful studio shoot, and a toy-themed Necessities page, I spent a LOT of time in toy stores and several late nights putting together adorably tiny outfits. Dressing kindergarteners is surprisingly fun! 1.  Feeding time at the Newport Aquarium // 2. Pinkies up for a tea...
