Modern, Meet Vintage

Hello Friends,

When we first sat down to discuss doing a modern + rustic styled shoot, it became an experiment of playing with contrasting ideas.  Over several weeks, we shared hundreds of images, ideas, and messages, which resulted in this lovely day.  Here are a few personal photos, along with a brief write up on the day and the very talented, entirely local group of artists and vendors.



Real-life sweethearts, Alison & Colton.


A few final rays of afternoon sun...

I hope you enjoyed this Modern + Rustic shoot, and that you find a little reassurance in mixing your own various styles together.  A house that reflects the lives within is the best kind of home.

Until Soon,
Sara/Jane, xx
