A PALM SPRINGS DESERT INSPIRED SUITE







This was such a fun invitation suite to create with my client who is having a destination wedding in Palm Springs.  Cactus and bright flowers!? I mean…

SNAPSHOTS FROM NEW YORK
















A few photos from my AMAZING trip to NYC last month.  It's always a great feeling to be in the city.  I had so much fun catching up with friends, shopping, eating, and exploring a bit on my own.  

I posted even more on my photography blog

STUDIO SNAPS : WORKS IN PROGRESS






A few instagrams around the studio from the past week or so.  I have been working hard on getting all the stuff I've posted lately printed and up in the shop!  I'm pretty excited about the greyscale botanicals and watercolor animals.  Also bringing the wreaths back since everyone seems to love them! xx

SUMMER FRUIT





A few snapshots from my kitchen, just for fun.  Sometimes when I'm cooking the colors and textures of fruits and vegetables just get me.  Nature can be so inspiring when you really pay attention to it.  

Happy Monday xx

WATERCOLOR WHALES


Well, this was all I could muster up to post apparently.  Do you ever feel like the week just began but realize it's already Friday?! Yeah, that's me this week.  I got in a car accident over the weekend (everyone's fine!) so between dealing with insurance photo calls, getting a rental, and being sad about not having my beloved volvo I've had a slew of printing orders to place and things to paint.  I'm taking on my first wedding tomorrow that I did all the paper goods, photographing (on Saturday), AND florals for.  I'm beyond excited and so thankful they trusted me with all of their creative needs.  My house is filled to the brim with flowers and I'm about to head out to arrange them today! I can't wait to see it all set up and will surely be sharing photos asap.  Follow me on instagram for some behind the scenes flower power this weekend! (@shannonkirsten).  Ok, so hopefully those are good enough excuses for why I've been MIA.  

To conclude, these WHALES are finally up in the shop!  I have them listed as 11" x 14" (limited quantities).  I love them and hope you will too.  

Oh, and have a fabulous weekend! xox

HAPPY 4TH!




I'm back from New York just in time to celebrate the 4th of July! Watching the fireworks over the water is my fave.  I can't wait to share all that I've been working on and alllll of my photos from NYC! 

The above pictures were from an inspiration shoot with The Kissing Tree Vintage a couple weeks ago (see more on my photography blog)

Have a happy weekend! xx

FROM THE SEA TO THE CITY










Just a few snapshots from recent beach shoots over the past couple weeks.  It's been HOT lately, but at least our little island provides the most beautiful scenery to make a day outside worth it.  I'm leaving mermaid life behind this week and heading to NYC! It's been way too long since I've visited the city and I'm dying with excitement.  New York is so inspiring and some of my favorite people live there.  I can't wait to come back with a ton of photos and fresh ideas.  I'm kicking off the weekend with my mom's birthday today, Hunter's sisters wedding tomorrow, then I leave bright and early Sunday morning and it will be non stop through next week.  Also gearing up for some fun projects and shoots in July that I can't wait to share.  

Have an amazing weekend! Be back next week. xx
