This sun-kissed image is honoring the start of Surf season here in Nor Cal (which starts in October and goes throughout winter), leading to the great Mavericks in Feb/March. As I was anticipating some nice cool autumn weather this week and planning hearty fall recipes (like roasted acorn squash with cinnamon…) temps soared over the Bay Area, making me think of a classic surf film, The Endless Summer. I photographed this lovely real-life surfer girl (a total sweetheart) in my studio, but layered the image with watercolor effects. Hope you like it as much as I do! Enjoy! And now booking holiday sessions! xoxo Kelly

I had the pleasure of photographing a remarkable lady recently, a dear friend and vintage aficionado. I first met Lottie when she interviewed me in early 2011 for her blog about vintage inspirations. I was immediately enamored by her grace and style, her charming British mannerisms, and kind, gentle spirit. When she told me she was the winning bidder for a photo session I donated this year to a local school auction, we were both so excited for that day to come. Alas, that day has arrived and here are a couple “sneak peeks” from our fabulously fun session! Nicki, a friend of Lottie’s, did her exquisite hair & make-up styling. The gorgeous lingerie set Lottie is wearing, (a gift from hubby) is from What Katie Did. Shouldn’t all husbands gift something lovely like this? So here’s to celebrating a wonderful and beautiful person, mother, talented writer and creative spirit. I’m delighted to finally return a blog post about you! I’ll be posting more pics from our session on my Facebook Page so stay tuned for more… Thanks for stopping by! xoxo Kelly

Hair & Make-Up Styling By Nicki Jones

Never judge a dress on it’s hanger. That’s my motto. I love it when clients bring in outfits that initially surprise me but end up photographing remarkably well for pin-ups. This lovely lady had a beautiful wrap dress but I wasn’t sure at first how it would work with poses. Once she put it on, the royal blue just fit perfectly with her petite figure and it inspired us to do an “Elvgren” style shot. It ended up being one of my favorites! With the telephone and rose, it’s such a classic! Let me know if you have an outfit you think would make a classic modern pin-up! And remember, never judge a dress until you try it on! xoxo Kelly
