I'm Nikki, a creative old soul who loves tea time, tip-toeing through gardens, mounds of books, swaying to records, watercolors, sunset walks with our three yorkies, and star-gazing with Paul. This blog carries snippets of my life with just us two (five with Rusty, Lucy, & Ethel) - I hope it brings you happiness as you snuggle in with something warm and delicious and begin reading. Enjoy, friends!

Brianna | A Styled Woodland Shoot

Oh, how I love styled shoots. They may be one of my favorite things about being a photographer. It lets me be creative, use my imagination, try new things, mess up, learn from mistakes, and so much more.

I created a woodland styled shoot about a month and a half ago (I know, I’m really late with getting these photos online!!) and I really wanted to use them more for my Photoshop actions (you can find them here & here :)) so I could experiment more and to show off my products of course. :)

Big thanks to 1. Brianna for being an amazing model!! Everything I said, she did. Even in the midst of thousands of mosquitoes. She looked the part perfectly – so calm, peaceful, serene. Absolutely perfect!  Thank you so much for all that you did, friend!! :) 2. Leigha for doing amazing hair and makeup like she always does (she’s done 3 other shoots with me here, here, & here :)) and for supplying us with her grandpa’s farm and for bringing her sweet pup to keep us company. :) 3. Mary for supplying the beautiful floral crown!! I can’t tell you how excited I was to see what she came up with and when I saw it, I was in love!! It was perfect – exactly what I pictured. Simple, pastels, dreamy, romantic, etc. :) Perfect. Thank you so much, Mary!! :)

So, enjoy my favorites from our shoot, friends!! Also, you’ll notice they’re not all edited the same and it’s because I wanted to use a variety of my Photoshop actions on them to show. :) To purchase my actions, click here. :)
