SavvyRoot | Spring-Summer 2016 Campaign: New Orleans Commercial & Fashion Photographer

“Designing leather goods for the downtown woman who plays an uptown sensibility, is often like living a dream. Seeing my sketches come to full fruition, as they do through my manufacturer, makes my job often feel so surreal.”   Celeste Austin – Founder & Designer, SavvyRoot

With my love for all things girly and fashion-forward, you can imagine my excitement when Celeste, founder of SavvyRoot contacted me about doing a shoot for her SS16 Brand Campaign. I’ve watched this girl boss KIIIIIIILL it since the infantile days of her business launch in which she hit the ground running.

From the very beginning, Celeste presented a brand in SavvyRoot that offered high-end, classy handbags at an affordable price. From her packaging, to her intricate attention to detail in each leather bag, to her features in Huffington Post and Southern Living, she is rocking the scene with her designs.Savvy Root Spring 2016Savvy Root Spring 2016Savvy Root Spring 2016Savvy Root Spring 2016Savvy Root Spring 2016

Her designs are fashion-forward and loved by women of all ages–which makes them a fabulous gift if you weren’t sure about what to get mom for Mother’s Day (in a few short weeks, cough cough).

Subtle Suede & Plaid | A Casual Day on the Town: New Orleans Fashion Photographer

Although I’d be lying if I said this “Fall” weather in South Louisiana was cool enough for me right now, the temperatures do make for some easy, quick, and cute daytime outfits. Recently, I scored these suede bells from Target–a current new favorite addition to my wardrobe this season. Pair them with THE-MOST-COMFORTABLE-TEE-I-OWN by the ever-fabulous style blogger herself, Cara Loren and some plaid and I’m set for errands and lunch with the gals. Undoubtedly, all three of these pieces will be staples for me this Fall.

More Fall Vibes and Thoughts on Control | Style Blog + Love Notes: New Orleans Fashion Photographer

“I’ve learned it’s easy to be all-in with the things you can dictate and control. It’s when you have very little control and no idea where life will take you that going all-in is so terrifying. But what if it’s in those spaces of no control that a brave life actually begins?”

Excerpt from If You Find This Letter by Hannah Brencher

This is a little less of a style blog post and a little more of “I needed my fabulous photographer friend, Melissa Friloux, to snap new website photos of me;” but nonetheless, I thought I’d share them along with the aforementioned pretty little quote from my current literary love affair.Style Blog Style BlogStyle Blog

Fall Vibes and Hard Lovin’ | Style Blog + Love Notes: New Orleans Fashion Photographer

“When we are open and giving of our light, we create an endless reflection that outlives our human existence.” 

GARY FRIEDMAN – Restoration Hardware, CEO

When I very unexpectedly came across CEO of Restoration Hardware Gary Friedman’s reflection letter as I was perusing the RH website a couple of years ago, I was immediately taken aback by his soulful words and optimistic passion for life and people.  It sparked something in me. I began noticing more intricately the beautiful souls placed in my life, and more so, how every single person and experience was an opportunity to learn, grow, and love. Through various life happenings and challenges over the past year in my own life, I found myself changing my own mantra quite a bit and actively pursuing reactions founded in love and positivity as much as I could muster, in all situations.

My sweet friends, actively doing this has been LIFE CHANGING for me. Like really really, in an I want to shout it to the rooftops and do a dance kind of way.

Practicing love, kindness, and a positive mindset as much as I possibly can has, quite literally, poured more fulfillment into my life and relationships and the most astounding outcomes. So, if you’re in a rut, or if you find yourself having troubles with the relationships around you, or quite frankly if you just breathe air on this planet, I challenge you to try to practice a life of light and love this week. When someone hurts you, when something doesn’t go as planned…DO IT. Surprise them…or yourself. LOOOOOOOOVE people. It will change your life, I swear. And this world can always use a little more happy…

Imagine | Fall 2015 Collection Preview

Today is the first slightly crisp and pretty day of Fall-esque weather in these parts, and as usual, my girls at Imagine Boutique are kiiiiiilling it with their Fall Collection. We shot this recently and had so much fun giggling and drooling over the soft denims, plaids, suede, and fringe–heaven, I tell ya.

If you’re local, be sure to stop by and see what they have in store–or my personal favorite (and dangerous) option, follow BOTH of their locations on Insta at @shopimaginehammond and @shopimaginepville for daily posts to freshen up your Fall fits.
