Flower Crowns

Mendola Family Session at Rancho El Camino Equestrian, Del Mar

Mendola Family Session at Rancho El Camino Equestrian, Del Mar

I am SOOO excited to share this sneak peak, from my session yesterday in Del Mar with Mia and her sweet Mom. These stunning ladies were so amazing and easy going, and their beautiful horse Vern was such a good boy! I started the day a bit worried since the weather report said it was going to be cloudy and potentially rain, but when it magically cleared up in the afternoon I knew that this session was going to be magical. Since it was such a special day, I had to do something extra for these sweet people. 

I ended up going over to my parents place (sorry mom, but I didn't take too many flowers) around the corner here in Cardiff and making some beautiful flower crowns.  One with Bougainvillea and white roses, another with purple Statice and olive tree branches, and finally the one for Vernie was Hydrangea Rosemary and purple garlic flowers. And they turned out to be perfect for the session!

Mia, I hope your family loves these sneak peaks and I am so excited to get working on the rest. You and your mom are the sweetest and I loved every moment with you. The light of your love for each other shone through in all of these pictures and I hope these pictures help you remember this golden afternoon. The way you love your parents, and the way the love you back, reminded me of this great quote by E.E. Cummings_

" You are my Sun, my moon, and all of my stars"



Festival Style at Stroll in Little Italy


There were some seriously good vibes at the Stroll a few weeks ago when Katie (the owner) hosted a Pre-Coachella Sale. From the stunning festival attire, Crazy beautiful flower crowns by La Belle Bloom , Awesome polish changes by Girl on the Go! Night Spa , not to mention champs and tasty treats! It was out of control, amazing! Check out some of the fun images of the night below.


Did I mention the seriously tasty snacks? I am now obsessed with Rock Candy as decor on cupcakes and cakes <3! Plus I can't pass up a tasty cheese board with fig crackers....like ever.  And there was pink Champange! Ahhh! too much goodness.

 The incredibly talented Claudia Cruz of La Belle Bloom was making stunning Flower crowns. I mean the pictures below barely do them justice. If you follow me on instragam then you saw one of the stunning flower crowns I purchased.  I bought a few and depleted her stock but she hoped right up and started making more with some of the beautiful blooms she brought with her. I can't wait till the next time I need flowers, or a flower crown because I will be heading straight to this Little Italy gem.I am so excited I get to work with these inspirational San Diego Lady Bosses, and hopefully we have another event together soon. :)
