babiekins magazine

One of my favorite kids Magazine, Babiekins asked my friend Merrilee to create a craft for them.  Since Merrilee and I like working together, we decided to do a collaboration.  She came up with the cutest paint chip feather craft and I helped style and photograph the tea party.  It was so much fun to work with Merrilee, not only is she amazingly talented, but the nicest most easy going person ever! Anyway, here are a few photos from our collaboration together for Babiekins.  You can get the full tutorial for the craft and see the beautiful online magazine here.

The models did such a wonderful job and took to direction well.  We told them to "pour" and "take a sip" and "take a nibble" and "look natural".  Some of the cutest moments were unposed and spontaneous, my favorite kind of photographs.

These two were so cute together.  While I photographed Creed and Lydia they were in their own little world, laughing and giggling to one another.  We joked that it was as if they were on a date...maybe one day?!
