Summer Lovin'


Photoshoots are always fun! The best ones are usually super early in the morning or the golden hour when the sun is just about to set {to catch the perfect light}.... After hosting an event the night before and waking up to the sun rising, the results of this photoshoot were well worth it! Simple, classic, with the sea as the perfect backdrop....


The details came together to create a beautiful look with a vintage touch. Sea glass, shells and a gold chevron table runner {LOVE!}, all blended together perfectly for the look we were going for. 



We always love shooting with Ashley & Gregg of Brooke Images. They're from the Jacksonville area so anytime they're on the island we try to set up a shoot. The soft, natural lighting mixed with the details of the decor created the perfect feel for a vintage, beach shoot. 










Ingredients to the photo shoot:

Nikita Fosmore - Salon Salon {model's & hair and make-up}
Silva's Flower Corner {flowers}
The Loft 5 {styled}

Farm Inspired

Story has it, wild chickens are running around Anna Maria Island. Some people enjoy them, others not so much. With the help of locals {Team Chicken}, they have found a home for the chickens at The Wildlife. 



Joe and Nancy, from Beach Style Re-cycle, came up with the idea of "have you hugged your chickn today?" All the proceeds of the t-shirts go to keeping the chickens free.





This Chicken tale will go down in history....

The purple and khaki undertones made for a perfect romantic yet carefree feel as they celebrated life and love on their special day.
