I have started to write about 5 different blog posts in the last two weeks, but between shooting the AMAZING magazine spread I did last weekend, editing those photos, my baby having to get her 2 month vaccination shots, packing for a 10 day trip and then traveling with an 8 week old, my efforts to write any sort of blog post have proven futile. We are down in Sea Island, Georgia now for the next 10 days and I plan on relaxing, having lots of family time and getting some inspiration overload, so be prepared for lots of great stuff on its way. Until then, have a wonderful weekend and Happy Easter, Passover, Spring…everything!

Well it has down south at least, and I drank it in this weekend at Sea Island. It seems every time I visit the island my mind quickly becomes brainwashed with preppy pink and green and all I want to do is place big giant bows on the head of every little girls’ adorable side parted blonde bob.
Oh, and in case you were wondering where all the gorgeous spring flowers are…they ran away to Sea Island, GA, which is what I want to do.
Reason #4485 why I want to run away to Sea Island: gorgeous marsh sunsets.
Now, back to reality.
P.S. This is my 200th post!!!!

The other week I had the pleasure of photographing the Tibi outlet store. Located on the barrier island of St. Simons, GA, the Tibi outlet is tucked away among the live oaks and Spanish moss of the south Georgia coastline. Tibi owner and designer, Amy Smilovic, originally hails from the island, making it the perfect location for the Tibi outlet. Tibi’s look has always been one of graphic prints, saturated color and classic design. One glance around the island and it is easy to see where Amy got her inspiration for Tibi.
Fortunately for me, I have been going to the beach in this area for years and there is nothing better than throwing on a Tibi dress for a night out, after a day in the sun. Especially when that Tibi dress can be had for a steal from the Tibi outlet. Along with in season and post season Tibi collections, the outlet offers one of a kind sample pieces. With its newly renovated and expanded digs, the Tibi shop on St. Simons Island is hardly an “outlet” style shopping experience. It is modeled after their chic New York locations, but exudes all the charm and warmth of the island.

I scored the coveted utility belt from the previous season…often seen on Olivia Palermo
Tibi girl key chain and Tibi girl Caroline
My awesome sample sale score and the sweet and fun Judy who runs the outlet.
The island, the girls and the shop are so wonderful. I had a blast photographing them. I can’t wait to come back with my family at Easter and stock up on some great summer dresses.
Till then Tibi girls…

My brief trip to Sea Island in April left me craving more for sunshine and salty air, so upon returning from that weekend, I immediately books flights for another, slightly longer getaway for the Memorial Day weekend. Friends of ours from Washington, DC and their 15 month old little man joined my husband and I, and made for a wonderful little party of 5. We spent our days playing in the pool, walking on the beach, exploring marine life and even enjoyed a full moon over the ocean one night. I now like to refer to the trip as our first annual family Memorial Day beach trip, hoping to have many more to come with our friends.
The only schedule in which to adhere were mandatory 3pm piña coladas by the pool.

Fountian fun - The Sea Island Beach Club is child’s dream play land…and well actually a grown-up dream play land as well. The place is perfection.
and lots of exploring
Horseshoe crab - amazing and prehistoric looking
The dunes at the end of the island are more than 4 ft tall.
Father and son
Family photo - Believe it or not I took these on the beach at 1o o’clock at night with only the full moon reflecting off the ocean and a long shutter speed for light. If you look closely you can see the stars even.
Same photos with a little photoshop auto color. I love that it looks like a painting.
Happiness is the beach with family and friends. I am such a lucky girl.

While we spent most of our time at the beach this weekend relaxing and enjoying the Sea Island, GA weather, I did purchase a few items. For when I popped into the beach club shop to get some sunscreen , they were just too cute/yummy to resist.
• Bag full of very cherry Jelly Belly’s and sour cherries. My favorite candies.
They were all so cute together I had to shoot them on my beach chair.
I just love this guy and the bubble pattern. What should I name him/her?
The weekend was perfect and I have a bunch of great photos including some night shots, on the beach, with the full moon. More tomorrow.

A few photos from our very short but very wonderful Easter weekend at Sea Island, GA. I am already plotting how to get back down there for Memorial Day.
More to come.

Seeing as my new husband and I are about to jet off on our bleated honeymoon I figured it was time to do a proper wedding post. The night was so wonderful and amazing and fortunately the photographers at Sea Island Photography were able to capture that feeling. I could go on for days about each and every photograph, and I love getting to relive the night through the photos. I hope you enjoy.All photo credits to Sea Island Photography and a few by new in-law David King.
Dunes, ocean and perfect weather.
We danced all night long with the ocean breeze. It was magical.
The band (Anita) did a rendition of Minnie the Moocher to rival The Blues Brothers.
“A hidi, hidi, hidi, hi”
Most amazing exit ever. I didn’t want to leave.
Dad surprised us and arranged for a 1940 Cadillac to take us away.
And then fireworks!!!! Dad really out did himself
Best night ever!
