The 2015Â issue of Bliss Celebrations Magazine
was just released and it is stunning! I was so honored to have styled several features in this magazine!
The shoot below was shot at the beautiful Stonington Vineyards
. It poured rain throughout the day which made it challenging to shoot and style, but it created a beautiful mist that added to the romance of the shoot!

The image on the left is from a shoot that I planned an styled in New York City. Â It was a fun collaboration with the talented Justin & Mary Marantz for their blog, The Black Tie Bride
. This image was actually totally unplanned. Â We were walking towards Central Park, where the shoot was to take placeÂ whenÂ the wind picked up and blew Liane's skirt. Â Suddenly, Justin asked her to stop, and of course, she struck the perfect pose- and Viola! Â The perfect image!

The spread below is a real wedding. Â I had the absolute pleasure of styling Linnea and her Mom for her big day. Â Doesn't she look stunning?

This shoot is near and dear to my heart, as it features my daughter Lindsay and her sweet friends. They had a blast getting all dolled up for this shoot and receiving the royal treatment!

To me, there is not much more romantic than a winter wedding! Â I was honored when Bliss asked my favorite creative team, Jubilee Events, Carla Ten Eyck and me, to conceptualize a shoot for this issue. Â We landed on a masculine, meets feminine theme filled with texture in The Berkshires. Â I am in love with the long sleeve, angora sweater gown that I used in this shoot. It was the perfect streamlined silhouette and it helped to keep the model toasty in the freezing temps! To see more of this shoot, stay tuned to our blog!
