Kate & James | Tattooed Family Session | Las Vegas, NV

When I visited Las Vegas this past October, I was able to connect with Kate when we collaborated on this shoot with Desert Daisy Jewelry. We had been emailing about setting up a family session the week before since she, James, and their adorable son, Waylon, were overdue to have their photos taken. 

The morning after we met, the three of them showed up to our session in Downtown Las Vegas in coordinating outfits, all the way down to their boots! Waylon was just the sweetest, most polite, photogenic little guy!

After snapping some shots with the awesome street murals near Fremont Street, we decided to treat ourselves to breakfast at The Donut Bar. I've never seen such huge, gorgeous donuts and, thankfully, they were just as delicious as they were pretty. Waylon picked out the pink one, and I just had to have the funfetti, of course! After our snack break, we captured some more photos and played at Container Park! We had so much fun.

Desert Daisy Jewelry | 2016 Holiday Collection | Las Vegas, NV

Several months ago, I participated in a weekly social media challenge through the Rising Tide Society and discovered the gorgeous jewelry designed by Emma of Desert Daisy Jewelry. At the time, I had an idea for a styled shoot her work would be perfect for. When the time to plan the shoot came, I reached out to see if she would be interested in contributing a few of her pieces. She was delighted to hear about the theme (more on that coming soon!) and we knew we were on to collaborating on something amazing. 

My shoot was planned for just two days before a Vegas vacation where Desert Daisy Jewelry just happens to be located! Emma and I decided to meet for coffee so I could return her custom made pieces in person instead of shipping them back to her. Little did I know when we originally made those plans they would morph into much more than a get together at Starbucks! I had a little extra time one morning during my trip so we decided on a photo shoot instead! She threw together a creative made up of the most wonderfully talented ladies I could imagine connecting with on a trip across the country! All together, we made magic! Behold, the Ice Princess inspired 2016 holiday collection from Desert Daisy Jewelry.
