I am 100% not supposed to do this. But, in laying out the magazine over the last few days, I’m just so proud of my rep clients that I had to share some recent images from each of them that have never before been seen online. I really had to hold myself back from showing you my top favorites. You’ll just have to wait for the magazine for those. They don’t know I’m doing this, so I hope they don’t mind me gushing about them a bit. Watching them grow and evolve over the last months just gets me all sorts of motivated!

Kyle Barnes sent me these images above today from our Watercolor shoot. My favorite is the little mason jar of simple red carnations in the gravel. I set a table up for Kyle one afternoon and left him to play. The images that came from it (you’ll just have to wait for the rest) are some of my favorites he’s ever shot. You can’t beat the image on the left. Imagine: playing croquet in your Louboutin‘s and sipping French wine as the sun sets. Yes, please!


Oh Jory, this shoot makes us swoon! These film images above make me feel like I’m swimming in a sea of pretty pink vintage goodness. Y’all know I love French macarons. Jory Cordy captured these delightful sweets from Sucre and Paulette‘s so perfectly. I love the bride and groom signs from Kristy Rice. So many details on this table I can’t wait to share with you in our print edition. I had to hold myself back from showing you my favorites!


One of the most beautiful women I know, inside and out, is Annette Thurmon. Annette is not only the model above, but a stellar custom wedding dress designer. Shot by Fred Egan with her husband, these images capture what Watercolor is all about- the brilliant sandy white beaches. Just magical, Fred!


OK, Jeff Holt melts my soul every time I talk to him. He encourages everyone around him to strive for greatness in their lives and be filled with sunshine. These images do just that for me too! Henry the dog, was such a good sport donning a Southern Proper bow tie. The decadent table details will make you melt too! Oh so much to come…

Styling for all the shots above by the incomparable Joy Thigpen and Ashley from Dolci Odille. Thank you, ladies, for your Midas touch!

I have some big surprises in store from my other rep client, the phenomenal Mr. Cowart. It’ll be well worth the wait folks.

Thank you, gentlemen, for always inspiring me and encouraging me too. I’m writing this post after having a long conversation with someone this morning about what makes me happiest in all the work I do. It’s working with you.

    I just love the shades of pink with the white and brown/tans. So very pretty. The parasole is lovely. the flower on the tip is perfect.
    and Henry well he’s a cutie – love how well behaved he looks. Was it as easy to take the picture as it seems? 😉
