Barbara & Kenneth – Editorial Shoot

I am so excited to share this editorial shoot with you! It’s a modern take on every little girl’s favorite couple, “Barbie & Ken,” all grown up as Barbara and Kenneth. We took the essentials of America’s glamorous sweetheart and her dream boy, and created an elegant, classic and blithe celebration of blonde hair, pink heels, and Barbie’s perfect accessory (second only to her man), a Corvette!

I invite you to gush over the stunning florals, gorgeous ruffled gown, chic getaway mini-dress and the scrumptious 34-flavor donut bar. This shoot was inspired by my mother’s own innocent childhood obsession with Barbies. And since I welcomed a new baby girl into my home this year, it’s only fitting that I jump head first into the world of pretty and pink.

Special thanks to every vendor that gave so willingly of their time, talent, product and services, and made this shoot possible!

Photographed summer 2013

Marianne - Mikki truly is always a joy to work with.
Sheridan and Tom had such a great time.
I love these photos. Mikki caught the vintage feel Sheridan and Tom were hoping for and they just look gorgeous ( which of course I think they are!) Thanks for posting them.

Adam & Brynne- Bride & Groom Portraits

Photographed this pair last summer and it still makes my heart skip a beat when I see the images. Brynne’s dress was an Alta Moda blush beauty by Anne Barge, with a blush veil to coordinate. Adam’s suit was custom made and oh, so stellar. It’s not enough to say that I adore this couple…they’re just plain fabulous in every single way. I’ll never forget the way they looked at each other at their bridal session. They were SO in love, so tender and adorable. Such a perfectly paired couple! XOXO Brynne & Adam…Enjoy!
