When the seasons change I like to refresh my beauty routine. In autumn I enjoy playing up the natural glow that the chill in the fall air naturally gives to the skin and with a few extra beauty essentials, I become one hot mama with a radiant Fall Glow.

First things first, I always keep bobby pins handy to pull those loose strands away from my face when an unexpected breeze hits – this fall I love metallic finished bobby pins. I try to hold on to my memories of summer as long as I can, so I use sea/salt texturing mist to mimic the texture and body of my hair after a day at the beach. For those days I am running a little behind schedule and chasing my toddler out the door, I use a dry shampoo to add volume to my hair in a pinch. For a sheer hint of color and a natural healthy, dewy glow, I turn to Laura Mercier for the best tinted moisturizer ever – it is the perfect blend of skincare and makeup and is so amazing I have stopped using foundation all together. To continue the natural easy breezy look of fall, I am loving a sandy gray color nail lacquer. And last but not least, I put on some lip gloss with a little shine to rehydrate my lips and put on my favorite solid perfume that not only smells good, like jasmine and clary sage, but also comes in a beautiful natural shell…And, Voila, I am out the door, chasing after my toddler while  looking like I just spent the day at the spa… I wish I felt like it too!

A statement piece worn two different ways.

When I purchased this sweater I knew it was amazing & a piece like this can be worn so many different ways. Can be worn with a palazzo pant or with cute printed shorts. Also feel free to add cute accessories like this gold heart printed make-up bag I’m using as a clutch! Shhhh!

Tips and Tricks For Styling Your Kiddo!

As most any photographer will tell you, whether it be for a commercial, editorial or fun family shoot- clothing, accessories or props can make all the difference in the outcome of your images. So, with that said, I wanted to offer some fun and easy styling tips just for you! Not only can you apply my tips to styling for photo’s, they’re simple and easy enough that you can totally apply them to dressing your stylish kiddo everyday!

- Do not be afraid of color.  Color blocking is such a fun way to make those photo’s pop or to brighten up an everyday look.  Try a pair of bright red or green pants paired with a yellow or blue tee.

- Scarves and hats are your best friend.  The things you can do with a scarf are endless- wrap around the neck, use in her hair as a head wrap, or  throw it over the shoulders. Also, what kid doesn’t look absolutely adorable in a hat- girls and boys both look rockin’ in a fedora or slouchy knit hat.

- Layer.  Long sleeve tee with a short sleeve over top, or long sleeve tee with a tunic over top is always a super cute look.  It spices up the boring old plain tee-shirt and gives the top half of the outfit some style.  On top of that don’t be afraid to use that scarf and a cool jacket to finish the look.

- Don’t assume that “your kid would never wear that.”  You’d be surprised by how much fun your little one (boys too) can have when trying new looks. Have fun with them. Try different accessories and mix and match dressy with casual. Remember that like adults, kids want to express themselves via their clothing too.

-Check out your area’s local children’s boutiques.  Most often store owners and managers love to help you come up with styling idea’s.
