Photo Shoot for a Wild One! (& very happy birthdays!)

This month, a very awesome little dude turns 1, on the same day that his supermom turns 30! We decided to start the celebration early – with a “Where the Wild Things Are” photo shoot. Our inspiration was drawn from all over – friends, family, books, and of course the vast internet. We are really happy with the result, and hope you enjoy what we’ve shared! After a few ventures of this nature, we have found that the best way to approach a photo session with little ones is to keep an open mind, go with the flow, use what…

Handmade Gifting

I love to make gifts for all of my people! It is absolutely one of my most favorite things – it’s so fun to find or make that perfect gift for someone. Lately I’ve been a huge fan of making these earrings – and as far as I can tell, my friends and fam are fans of them as well! These are also available to order – just contact me directly to let me know about color, size, and quantity!

Sparkly Love!

I know it is super late – so please enjoy this photo experiment as gratitude for all the amazing birthday wishes! I have definitely been caught up in the best kind of whirlwind this summer, and thank you (x 100!) for thinking of me as I become an older person. Sending you all some sparkly love today! <3    Kindly, Colleen photo details: sparklers+DSLR+open shutter+my parents SaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSave SaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSave

Hairstory

I think I learned how to braid/french braid in my really composed and super graceful pre-teen years… (shoutout to my little cousins who definitely suffered the wrath of me teaching myself)! Since then I’ve always loved to style hair for friends and family, and now I’m able to share this hobby with some wonderful creatives. It feels so good to work in collaboration and get my artsy out into the universe again. Have I mentioned how much I love summer break? <3 These…

Style and Such

Happy Tuesday!! I do believe this is officially my first blog post! It’s not a topic that I am the most passionate about, but it is something that has been on my mind lately. Style. Everyone has a unique way in which they would like to portray themselves – and that almost always is evident in their style! It is such a fun and individual way to be artful on a daily basis. And I’m not talking just clothes either. To me, style is an evolving combination of aesthetics plus demeanor. Being comfortable in a person’s own skin is so…
