We were so thrilled to have our holiday shoot with Radhika and Ian from Radian Photography featured on Belle Lumiere's journal recently!  After working with Radhika and Ian on a couple other things, we talked to them about taking some pictures of our little family for our Christmas cards because we have become enamored with film photography, and Radhika and Ian's work is stunning.  Radhika suggested we pull in some other amazing vendors and make it a little styled shoot, and you know we at Plume love a good styled shoot, so of course we said yes!

We wanted to look to be true to P...


At the end of the school year last year, one of my former cheerleaders, Hannah, came to me to ask if she could borrow our globes for her senior portrait session.  Hannah showed me some pictures she had seen on Pinterest that inspired her.  She and her family are big world-travelers, and she is excited about the adventures the future has in store for her after her graduation in 2017, so a travel-themed shoot was perfect for her!  And anyone who knows me won't be surprised to know that as soon as Hannah asked about the globes and showed me the pictures, the little wheels in my head sta...


Country Living Magazine asked its Instagram followers to create a summery place setting that represented their state, and Plume Events was ready for the challenge!  We spent several weeks tossing ideas back and forth and shopping for the perfect pieces to create the look we envisioned, and we couldn't be happier with the final product and with the gorgeous photos from DiPrima Photography!


We knew for summer in NC we had to go with a red, white, and blue color-scheme, after all, our state flag boasts these beautiful colors, and who doesn't love a North Carolina Fourth of Jul...


I had THE best time with this shoot! It combined some of my absolute favorite things--fashion, beautiful flowers, sparkly jewels, and, of course, hair styling.  It was so much fun to put together all the details for this shoot.  I felt like a bride again when Carolina Bridal World let me pick out three stunning gowns, and the girly-girl in me could barely contain my excitement when Gemma Jewels said, "Pick out any jewelry you want!"  Umm...yes, please!  And on top of that, I got to work with two of the most talented (and sweetest!) vendors out there on the day of the s...


I am so excited and honored that 100 Layer Cakelet is featuring my sweet baby's nursery and newborn photos today!  The feature got me all sentimental--I blame those crazy hormones again--and inspired me to share our journey of becoming parents for the first time with you.  We chose our friends and amazing photographers Brett & Jessica Donar (who also photographed our wedding) to share this experience with us, and they captured all of the beautiful images in this post.  

Our journey to parenthood, like many others, did not start off as easily as I thought it would....


If you know anything about North Carolina, you know that the weather here is weird.  Like, 45 degrees and rainy one day, and 79 and sunny the next--in January.  As if deciding what to wear to a wedding or wedding-related event in the winter isn't hard enough, add inconsistent weather to the mix, and planning a nice outfit this time of year can be so frustrating!  


So, I decided to put together some transitional outfits for inspiration!  I wanted to use pieces that were not only fun but afordable, so most of the pieces I used were $50 or less, a...


I love symbolism.  It is the reason one of my passions and my first career has been teaching English.  And I have recently realized it is also probably one of the reasons I love weddings so much.  Weddings are full of symbolism--from the white dress, to the rings, to the tradition of feeding each other wedding cake.  In fact, the ceremony itself is a symbol.  It is the ultimate symbol of a couple's love for and commitment to each other.  You stand in front of one another, you look into the person you love's eyes, and you vow to choose to love him or her every day for the rest of your...
