Hopcraft & Co. Workshop

St. Augustine will always have a magical allure to me.  The historical architecture, cobblestone streets, and art galore.  Just over the Bridge of Lions, past the sailboats gliding on the water, is the Hopcraft & Co. studio.    

Inside this studio, on a spicy hot summer Florida day, the masters of beauty taught their workshop.  I had the honor of capturing all the pretty. 

Amanda of Hopcraft & Co. and Jill Stonier are masters at their craft and business skills.  So much to learn from these fabulous Girl Bosses.    

New headshots for these talented ladies



Of Mother's Day & Girl Bosses

Ahh, I can't wait to share with you all the gorgeousness I've been capturing these weeks.

Wedding season is no joke!  It's in full swing here in central Florida.  I love seeing endless beauty every weekend and trying to squeeze in every engagement shoot before the summer heat settles in for good.  

The only downside?  

The exhaustion and juggling four littles...who are determined to be sick at the craziest of times.  This week is our recuperation week.  As a family, we're re-grouping, I'm nursing littles back to health and squeezing in my editing time in between the crazy.  

I love being a "girlboss", it thrills me and fulfills me in a way no other part of my life does.  It does mean prioritizing time management and knowing when to be flexible.  My normal office hours are 11 am - 2 pm and 8:30 - 11:00 pm.  It's a bit choppy, but it allows me to be available for my littles.  That, my lovelies, is my dream.

This Mother's Day I am so grateful for the investment my own mother made in my life.  She set the bar high, you guys.  My sister and I are celebrating with her this Sunday, 8 grandchildren 8 & under.  

Here's to our mothers.  The ones who selflessly pour themselves into our lives - no matter how old - with a love that knows no bounds.  


What special ways do you include your mother in your wedding planning?
