March Recap & Prop Haul

In March:
I worked on: a lifestyle shoot around LA for Mayarya Maternity, fun social media imagery for Fullscreen Live, a new travel series for Chatbooks, a tropical influencer campaign for Raw Sugar Living, scrumptious social content for Dove Chocolate, a GIF series for LIFEWTR, an Instagram takeover for Brit + Co & a new education workshop for instagrammers, bloggers, and small business owners that's launching in May....! Can't wait to reveal more about this soon.
I traveled to: Bermuda with the Hamilton Princess Resort & Amy Tangerine & then back to my hometown of Pittsburgh to visit my fam! 
I discovered: the incredible California Poppy fields (at Walker Canyon near Lake Elsinore), and even saw a rattlesnake in the process! 

I gathered: props for the above shoots, and then a few fun finds for my Bermuda Trip - check out the highlights below! 

 

Bermuda Trip - prepared for surf & sun
Instax Camera - perfect for flatlays & to hold as a prop around the pastel island
Crazy Straws - my favorite thing to style with a tropical drink. I also had custom ones made!
Flamingo Float - also available for purchase in Bermuda at Luxury Gifts Bermuda, if you don't want to pack him in your suitcase! But here is the link to order online. 
Sun hat - what's a tropical trip without a wide sun hat? I loved this one - under $25!

Teenage Dreams - for a shoot where the target audience was young & fun! 
Lightbox - this is a more reasonably priced option than others I've seen
Holographic Lunch Tote - who could resist? 
Alphabet beads - a fun way to spell out colorful messages
Patch Shoes - cute and fun alternative to plain white keds...and they're also under $15 soooo...!

Fashion Shoot - a mix of neutrals & pops of color
Pink Lucite Sunglasses -  these are super cute, on trend and under $30. They also come in black
Yellow Handmade Tote - another super reasonable find, and an easy way to add a pop of color  Nude backpack - a cute, low cost bag that looked great on camera
