For the past few years, I’ve aspired to teach workshops here in the US for those who may be unable to travel to France, but have a strong desire to learn how to style professional visuals that reflect their brand and connect with their following. My objective in creating new workshops was simple; to design one-day intensive sessions that focus solely on styling exceptional images. This first series of workshops in the San Francisco area will kick off my plans of extending them across the nation in the coming year. I hope to see you at one!
In my experience, great photo styling has the proven ability to propel brands, sell product, and establish loyal followers. Whether you create content for your blog or website, have a small product-based business, or are an avid social media user wanting to up your style game, Style Sessions will help you create breathtaking images that will convey your brand’s mission and captivate your audience. These in depth, one-day workshops concentrate on the secret styling techniques and methods that I call upon for every editorial photoshoot and brand project. My goal is to help you become more confident with your work.
I hope you will join me and other creatives for an intensive, one-day Style Session and discover the secret styling techniques and expert methods needed to create stunning visuals for your brand, online presence, or small business. You’ll learn to Prop with a Pro™ through a detailed lecture, hands-on practice, and live styling demonstration. Our inspiring location, Elsie Green, will lend us gorgeous props for the day! Also included: morning coffee & pastries, delicious lunch, and workshop notes. While our lesson doesn’t focus on learning the mechanics of your camera, we ask that you bring one in order to visualize your work through the lens.

Today we’re continuing with my interview series of inspiring women who do unique and creative work. It seems now more than ever there are endless opportunities as to what a business might look like and how one might go about achieving success. Female trailblazers who are building their businesses off the beaten path, are in a way, sharing their gifts with those of us who aspire to achieve something meaningful in what we do for a living. In my line of work as an editor and stylist I’ve come across dozens of just such women, many of whom I consider friends, and I thought it would be great for you to get to know some of them as well.

But Bloomsbury Farm isn’t only a farm – it is also a gorgeous event space; hosting weddings, special events, and farm-to-table gatherings. Lauren truly loves creating a community around farming, nature, and food – let’s get to know her better!
Lemon Pepper Pappardelle Chicken Soup – quite the tongue twister of a recipe name but trust me…it’s oh, so good. If you are feeling under the weather and yearning for spring, this soup is your remedy! It’s a modern spin on your grandmother’s chicken noodle soup with a vibrant lemon pepper pasta and hefty splash of fresh lemon juice. It’s both comforting and refreshing and has been on rotation in our home this winter.
One of my strategies for posting more frequently this year is simply; to share more everyday things. Fortunately, when I started to make another pot of this delicious soup, I remembered my intention and pulled out my camera to document making the recipe. I hope sharing these glimpses of an average day will connect with you. When I read other blogs, they’re my favorite type of posts. Plus, it feels good to not stress about creating content and actually just live it. So welcome to my kitchen, let’s make Lemon Pepper Pappardelle Chicken Soup…
