Shower of Invites...

#1. Tea, Anyone?

Hannah and I created this (yes, supernerdy/dreamcometrue) Jane Austen tea party shoot for the front of this bridal shower postcard-- silly fun all around and, um, have you ever in your life seen a better eye brow raise?






#2. The Drawn Ultimatum

After finally coming to terms with the fact that I was never going to find a Little Bridal Birdy that looks just like Laine in istock, I decided to dust off the old drawing pens and have a go. 30 sheets of paper, two tantrums, and a good deal of hair loss later, she lives!!

#3. Tudo Mundo Vai

Hannah and Alex's beautiful mugs helped create the basis for this simple rehearsal dinner postcard invite... and the rest was a breeze! (Stay tuned for their wedding photos next month...)

#4. Gina Lola-pink-ola

"Pink and girly" was the only direction I was given for this baby shower invite... thanks a lot, Treen! Despite the challenge of delving into the unknown realm of peachy pinks, I had a blast throwing in some hand-drawn swirlies and vintage wallpaper flowers to capture the magic of this little gal's upcoming birth... hope you had a fun this weekend, ladies!

More to come soon once I've sorted my brain after the travels...

OMG Kel! These are so amazingly beautiful! I feel like I'm running out of appreciative things to say, but seriously, every time you post something new you just blow me away! I feel so honored to have such a brilliant buddy :-)

I LOVE my bachelorette postcard, the little birdie is the best. I even have green cateye glasses with rhinestones, did you know this? I'd love to scam the artwork off of you and hang her at home!

Thank again for sharing your talents.

Do you ever shoot famous people? Well, I am a famous person so you had better shoot me. Lots of love from Kaplan and all the gals at the studio in CC.
