Fantasy Table with Elizabeth Wray Design

Shooting for Elizabeth Wray Design is always a treat.  Her amazing set up and "Fantasy Table" on display at the Arista Hotel for a tasting event was unparalleled.  

You can check out her blog post where she featured my photos with more of the specifics on flower types, but I wanted to share a few of my favorites as well.

Clearly, I had quite the love affair with this bouquet.

Elizabeth Wray Design is also a member, as well as the co-founder, of the Geneva Bride.  Thanks Elizabeth!!  Always a pleasure!

Turtle man

Since I was a Delta Zeta "Turtle," I had special place in my heart for baby Charlie's turtle sweater.

His face is priceless.  I think this was his nervous smile.

Baby Charlie's dad, also named "Charlie," is an amazing carpenter and put a beautiful backsplash in our kitchen recently as well as some crown moulding in our kitchen and master bedroom.  He is just beginning a complete kitchen remodel for my sister & brother-in-law which I can not wait to check out.  His attention to detail and thoroughness produce end-products that will blow your mind.  If you have some home projects he is your man....Springstead Builders in Batavia, IL.

And baby Charlie's mom, Erika, is a face you may recognize from many years ago when I did head shots and location pics at her salon, Erika Noel, in Chicago.  After a relocation out east, getting married in Jamaica, and now being an awesome mom, she has a salon in her home where she is busy with all her loyal clients.  Let me know if you are looking for a new stylist.

Survival of the Fittest

Our best friends celebrating their survival of the the first year with the twins and their two older brothers.  What, like it's hard?

Snuck in some Gangnum Syle moves too...heeeey, sexy lady.

The little princess.

It's gotta be hard being the little sister.

What's wrong with HER?

Congrats to Tony & Nicole on a job well done.  Looking forward to celebrating many more milestones together.
