{Press} Valentine’s Day Photo Shoot for Debut Issue of 202 Magazine!

Share To:

I’ve been hinting about the Valentine’s Day inspired photo shoot that Laura from Laura Winslow Photography and I did for the debut issue of 202 Magazine. Well, it’s finally PUBLISHED! We received copies of the magazine a few days ago and are so excited that our work is included! You may have seen some of the photos when we launched our Mod Glam Valentine’s Day Collection, but now we can show you the photos of our adorable models! Cade is my friend’s son, and Audrey is one of Laura’s clients. They sure make an adorable little couple, don’t they?

The inspiration for the shoot came from a gorgeous RETRO red dress that I spotted on Etsy by a shop called FaithWorks. I had to have that dress for the shoot! Check out Faith’s shop HERE. We did a clothing change for Audrey and had her wear my daughter’s red pettiskirt {seen here} from Pink Taffy Designs and a new “love” tank top design from Finley & Oliver. Grace from Finley & Oliver also designed the adorable moped tee that Cade wore. We shot on location at a fabulous local shop, Designer Boulevard. It was wonderful to “borrow” their gorgeous home decor to style the shoot. Our favorite local baker, Melissa from Decadent Delights made all of the treats including the glitter heart topped cupcakes, sweet heart cake pops and perfect heart sugar cookies!
