{Camila Alves} In Print

I had the pleasure of styling the gorgeous Camila Alves for the January issue of Austin Woman Magazine.  I had anxiously been awaiting the release of the brand new, resized issue so I could see how amazing the shots came out!  Not only is Ms. Alves absolutely stunning in person she was an absolute joy to be around.   Check out all of the photos from our shoot below! <3







{Splurge or Steal} Style du Jour

Throw Back Thursday!

Splurge or Steals are some of my favorite shoots to do because it gives people options on what to buy that they can actually afford! Not all of us can afford this gorgeous Herve Leger Dress!  This shoot happened to be for Austin Woman Magazine’s February issue and it was a blast!  Last week I shot another one of these for my Ask Ashley column in the December issue, so keep an eye out!!

Which is your favorite?? My personal fav. is definitely the Herve!! It fit like a glove, as they all do, and I would definitely say SPLURGE on that!

{House Beautiful} Behind the Scenes

I recently had the pleasure to shoot with Houston Interior Designer, Paloma Contreras for the November issue of House Beautiful. It’s on stands now, so go pick up a copy!!  Here are a few fun, behind the scenes with a shot of the 2 potential looks we had to choose from for the article.  I just LOVED that Kate Spade dress!!

We first shot at Area, a furniture store in Houston and then moved on to Tiny Boxwood’s Cafe!  That place is AMAZING! If you’re in the Houston area you definitely need to check it out and get a chocolate chip cookie! To die for.

A couple months ago I had the pleasure of shooting a spread in Field & Stream Magazine with photographer, Jeff Wilson.  This was such a fun shoot – hot as hell, but a great time!  Here are a few behind the scenes I shot (get it…) at the range!

{City of Bastrop} Behind the Scenes

I have been so anxious to show off the final ads from the City of Bastrop shoot we did over a 3 day period all over the town.  The majority were shot at the Hyatt Lost Pines Resort, which is AMAZING if you haven’t been out there.

Here are some of my fun behind the scenes shots from each scenario!  Keep on scrolling to see the final shots!

{Beachy} Style du Jour

This is one of the ONLY posts I will ever do in a bathing suit.  I HATE doing posts like this too, but I just love this new bathing suit I got so I had had to show it off.  I first tried displaying it on the floor but then I realized it really doesn’t do it justice.  So, enjoy this rare bathing suit post because there probably won’t be another!  I’m already extremely sunburned from being at the pool all day, so please disregard how splotchy I look! (Yes, I caked the sunscreen on too!)

{Rainy Day} Style Du Jour

Happy Memorial Day everyone!  I am extremely thankful for all of those who have served and who continue do so.

Well, this outfit changed about 3 different times with our ridiculous weather.  First, it was partly cloudy and a little cooler outside so I had my maxi skirt, sandals and my star sweater on, ready to go.  Then, it started raining and realized my skirt is going to get nasty on the ground… So I threw on some leggings with my rain boots and my star sweater… THEN, it got hot so I threw on these super short shorts… By the time we did the photos it was freezing… Back to leggings.

What a rainy day…
