Avenle Summer Lookbook/Fashion Photography
Avenle Fashion Summer Lookbook 2014

Sometimes you meet people and instantly know you're supposed to be friends. Maybe it was the initial email from Andrea of the Avenle duo that said she basically had been stalking my work or maybe it was the the excitement and passion behind her vision. Either way, all the stars lined up and the Avenle Lookbook was born. It was the perfect recipe really.

Step 1. Hang out on the porch, sip some lemonade and make plans to hit the sea.

Step 2. Hop into your ridiculously cute Mercury Comet and head out on a road trip.

Step 3. Laugh, talk & make memories with your best friends.

Step 4. Savor the Endless Summer

Summertime Vintage Lemonade Stand Stylized Session/Benicia Family Photographer

I absolutely love little Skylar. I set out to do something different this summer and wanted more than just mini sessions with kids running off into the fields. I want something Pinterest-y (that's a word). I've decided to keep the setup up another couple of days. You see, this might be one of my last mini sessions offered. Well- let me clarify. I will only take group bookings moving forward. So much time (& money) goes into setting up these types of shoots and I want to make sure we make a day out of it with your friends and families.

I know summer is barely over, but before the holiday season is here start rounding up your girlfriends for your group's interest list. Email me so we can discuss holiday themed stylized shoots and have plenty of time to prepare. Send me your Pinterest inspired ideas and let's make amazing images that your family will keep (and not toss away after the holidays are over-oops!)
