A Cup of Sugar

I met up with my dear friend and talented baker Angela Cruz last weekend for a little baking extravaganza! Her cookie designs via her business A Cup of Sugar have been delighting eyes and tastebuds in Austin for several years now.  Made with a cup sugar and a lot of love, here are some shots from our cookie magic-in-the-making photoshoot!

SoCo & a Little Bling

I met up with Vanessa of Aurora’s Blush handmade jewelry and the lovely model Grace Gloria on Austin’s funky South Congress strip last weekend.  We were there to shoot Vanessa’a new line of hand engraved jewelry.  Her bohemian and elegant pieces worked perfectly against the gritty and colorful background of South Congress, and Grace donned them beautifully.  Here are some highlights from our shoot!

This Girl Knows Her Power Tools!

A few days ago I met up with the lovely and talented Vanessa Nicole, the designer behind Aurora’s Blush jewelry.  She is about to launch her new line of very chic and boho pieces, so we were scouting locations on Austin’s iconic South Congress strip for our photoshoot. Her signature hand-etched look is created by using a variety of rotary power tools, so each tribal and henna inspired piece has a unique look.  With a mix of precious gems and glittering druzy gemstones, these lovelies are hard to resist!  Here are some of our location shots.  We were looking for a mix of Austin urban with pops of color and light.
