{On to Baby Feature of Handmade Head Wreaths}

See the Full post on On To Baby!!

A little post to honor this Indian Summer-like weather for today.  I wanted to share with you these beautiful Photos from Steph Anderson Photography. Steph has been a friend of mine almost from the very moment that I can recall having friends as a child.  We grew up together in San Clemente, and she carted me through my shy elementary school days, onto my awkward middle school days and then of course to my rebellious high school days where we became serious partners in crime! We are now refined and respectful Wives and Mother’s with blossoming families.  We have grown in life together, the two of us, and now we have officially come together to bring you this beachy and fresh maternity shoot.  She asked me to create head wreaths for Ashley and Emianna…whatever I wanted to make! So I came up with these little lovelies, a personal favorite of mine so far.  Steph captured Ashley and Emianna just perfectly, their easy casualness, their sweet playfulness…love the warmth and comfort that emanates from these photos.  Steph has a serious talent for fresh and beautiful family photography, seriously…check.her.out. Steph, Ashley and Emianna, Thank you for these BEAUTIFUL photos and for being your fabulous selves!

And a little note from Steph herself, on the inspiration behind this session:

“Ashley, daughter of famous longboard shaper Bill Stewart, is expecting her second baby girl in November. I really wanted to do a bohemian/beachy maternity shoot with Ashley and her look-alike 3 year old, Emianna. I knew I wanted white dresses and beautiful flower headwreaths. I also wanted to take the pictures at a place that had meaning to Ashley. Trestles was the perfect spot… the best surfing beach in San Clemente with a beautiful, tree-lined trail. Aly from The Vines Leaf made the most beautiful & delicate flower wreaths for both of them to wear. Ashley wore a bathingsuit cover-up by L Space and Emianna wore a darling dress from Zara. It turned out exactly as I had hoped and that belly of hers is just too perfect for words!!!”
