At Home Holiday Engagement~ Josh and Tera

Morning Pearlies!  Hope you’re having a a great week…Before we head into our Christmas celebrations this weekend, I am doing some holiday flashbacks to end the week.  If you missed this one the first time around, I hope you get a chance to take it in today.  I loved this idea for an engagement session.  Although this year…there’s A LOT more snow on the ground this time of year.  lol!  Enjoy… Original Post Below: Sooooo….don’t you just love it, when it seems like keeping something simple ends up making it unique??  Well if you do, you’ll love today’s feature.  Josh and Tera opted to do an at home engagement session, and it really couldn’t have turned out any cuter in my opinion.  The couple incorporated so much of themselves just by…well…being themselves.  The session was taken around the holidays by our awesome (and very talented) friend Mel Klemz of Mel Klemz Photography, and the results were lovely.  You’ll see the couple was able to take a few photos outdoors due to the mild Indiana winter …

Then Comes Marriage… 7 Year Itch Anniversary Session by Mel Klemz Photography

Hey Pearlies!  Well, it’s been a long break I know…BUT…PPB is finally back!  And to start things off I wanted to share with you an anniversary shoot that actually took place late this summer with yours truly.  The concept of this anniversary session was to take away all of the stereotypes and bad “juju” that comes along with being married for 7 years.  My husband and I just had a simple concept in mind.  To celebrate those 7 years with a photoshoot that not only showed we are still madly in love, but showcase who we are in the process.  We didn’t want to necessarily stylize it, but we did bring a few props along to help tell our story.  Our life is a mix of all kinds of things… talking, reading, laughing, dancing, and making sweet music together, just to name a few. I enlisted my talented friend and photographer Mel Klemz Photography, and she did an absolutely PERFECT job!  We spent about 2 hours just walking around a beautiful, almost magical garden with her, …

Beautiful Bold Boho Inspiration Shoot ~ Mel Klemz Photography

Good morning you guys!  So today we have this beautiful boho inspiration shoot for you! Some things may look familiar as we used many close up shots when we did our Pink Pearls Praise of The Boho Barbie.  🙂 I asked Mel to take some photos of my new designs for the Boho Barbie website, and we decided while we were at it, we wanted to mix in elements to the shoot that could be a boho photo inspiration for brides and their bridesmaids.  We combined our talents and added a great location in Brincka Cross Gardens, and phenomenal make up by Carrie of Sta-Glam.  It turned out to be a winning combination.  See for yourself… We had so much fun with all the props!  I adored how the feather bouquets turned out and at the last minute Mel brought some umbrella’s she thought could be fun…it turned out they were the EXACT color scheme of what I wanted for the shoot!  The girls were hilarious as we directed them through everything, and it all …
