Yesterday my amazingly talented friend, Trista Lerit, did a photo shoot with us and we had so much fun! I saw a shot once with a baby sitting in between his mom’s legs and I just absolutely fell in love with it and knew I wanted a shot with Brayden and I like that. Last week I realized Brayden was practically already crawling and if I wanted to get that shot I had to get it NOW! I knew I wanted a preppy, slightly retro look to the shoot and I really wanted an antique baby carriage. Lucky for me I found one at the Orange Circle last weekend. I went in the store and asked how much it was and the lady told me it was $385 and I must have gotten a sad face because the guy in the corner said, “I’ll give it to ya for eighty bucks.” $80 I can do!
Trista styled the whole shoot. I’m wearing her dresses and shoes! Those shoes were so high I couldn’t even walk in them, but they did look good! She should be a stylist as her second job! And Carina is the one who made me look good. Note to brides, please book Carina NOW! She and her associates are absolutely amazing. And she just opened a new studio in Costa Mesa which is just gorgeous! She even did my hair because the curls started to fall. How awesome is she?
Trista, Chuck and I thank you from the bottom of our heart. I know how crazy busy you are this time of year and it means so much to us that you took time out of your hectic schedule for us. I’m so lucky to have you as a friend! You are such a talented photographer. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
