Valentine's Beach Picnic!

Nothing is sweeter than a stroll on the beach and sharing a beautiful picnic in the sand with the one you love. Add some champagne, amazing pastries, plush pillows and some romantic details and you have yourself a chic and fun Valentine’s picnic brunch with your Honey!

I had a fabulous time teaming up with lovely and talented photographer Maggie Marsek, and here is what we created together! We could not have asked for a more gorgeous day on the beach....

You can emboss fruit!!!

We wanted to portray a fresh, cool, SoCal vibe with lots of loving details. The cliffs, warm sand and gorgeous water provide the always ahhhh-mazing backdrop, so that meant keep the details simple but add a punch of pinks, crystal and white.

i long along

parched desert wildflowers
rustled by a dry breeze
crackled like tumbleweed
in autumn's backyard

now buried by snowdrift
withered under weather
i long for their vibrant color
their skeletal delicacy

i long along
for winter's end

i will welcome the weeds
as much as the others

my longing for autumn
she is long gone

i long along
long along

spring will come
she will come
