If you missed Sweet Natalie’s appearance on the blog, months back, you might want to check it out here before you continue… She is simply GORGEOUS! And lucky for me, not only did I get the opportunity to shoot with her, but she also gave me full creative freedom on a custom calendar made JUST FOR HER (actually…just for her MAN to be exact! Lucky him!)!
Once I felt I had a good feel for who Natalie really is and what her heart imagined for her man’s special treat, I teamed up with my talented friend Lori over at Paper & Thread Studio. Lori is always AMAZING at using her creative butterfly net to sculpt whatever hair-brained ideas I have into something perfect. Not only does she have incredible creative talents, but she’s the sweetest person in the world to work with. 🙂 And for THIS project…all that added up to one beautifully fun time together! I’m so excited to show you what we designed & built…check it out!
December’s image is one of my all-time most favorite boudoir shots…I love how vivacious & beautiful, natural beauty really is!
January’s images were STITCHED together…my new favorite thing! I’ve since experimented at home (under Lori’s tutelage of course!) & made some amazing goodies myself…such fun!
I love the burlap-y fabric on April…it reminds me SO much of that sandy beach! So textural.
These hand-laid bits of lace were a perfect fit for July’s gorgeous lacy bikinis Natalie had on!
Natalie…once again, I’m overwhelmed by how your beauty just glows in camera and in life. THANK YOU for allowing me to capture this season for you and THANK YOU for allowing me to share it so others can experience it as well. You are one in a million, my dear!
Lori…you are an ANGEL to work with! I can’t imagine humbly pouring out my crazy ideas to anyone else and having them “get it” like you seem to do so easily. 🙂 You are such a special friend and I’m ever grateful for your magic on this project. Thank you!! xo
