The bee's knees

So that title is not for me or these pictures but very simply how I feel about my lovely little sister who has been my muse since she was born. Seriously, the first black and whites that I ever took were of her when she was three painting on the porch. When she was six, I made her run barefoot in a fairy costume in the woods of Santa Barbara, she helped me build my children's portfolio when I first started my business 8 years ago, then my teenage portfolio and now she is moving on to the bride side (yes... that makes me want to cry). Thanks for being my muse, Ya! I love you. The best part of you is that you are so many things... intelligent, funny, sarcastic (I like to think I had something to do with that), and so much more. I am so excited to see what the next couple of years bring for you. I technically should not be posting this shoot as I want to share it with big wide world and not just on my little blog.  Now at least my mom can stop calling me every other day to see the pictures :)

This shoot had a crew of vendors/lovely friends and family that helped: Lindsay Averette from LK Events and Designs styled the shoot(one day I will tell you all the story of the worms and the slate...it makes me giggle every time I think about it), Josh Henderson from Mango Salon did the fabulous hair and makeup, Pleidales vintage bridal supplied the dresses, Jon Goodrich assisted me, Laura from the Buttercream Bee gave us a cake for the other part of the shoot, and Carolyn Young did the florals.

I am not however posting any more of these until I hear back on them so you will have to wait (mom)! I hope that you all enjoy!
