Katie :: Bradenton, Florida // Portrait Photographer

This is Katie, otherwise known as Beach Babe.  I seriously couldn’t have asked for a more gorgeous evening or model to explore Coquina Beach on the Bradenton gulf shoreline!  Looooooooove me some golden hour, warm tones, and hearty laughter!

Katie, thank you for sharing your evening and sweet spirit with me! I appreciate our new friendship, and I look forward to working together again in the future!

xoxo, Olivia Marie

Styled Shoot // Part One :: The White Sparrow, Quinlan, Texas

It was such a tremendous joy to organize and host a Styled Shoot at The White Sparrow.  Not only was this my first styled shoot, but it was also my first time shooting in Texas, and arranging details from 1,097 miles away was sometimes overwhelming and tricky.  (Thankfully, I’ve been back to the lonestar state since for photographic reasons and I’ve come to loooove the big, open sky!)
I was so glad to have Christy Anne helping me as we plotted and planned, shooting for the stars. (Pun recognized and intended. 😉 )  Sometimes, dreaming big and being an over-achiever can get me into trouble, but usually, it works in my advantage.  I love trying new things, and if it scares me, I will probably do it just to spite the fear inside of me.  This was a huge *first* for me, but definitely not a last!  I can’t wait to create some more magic with all of these amazing vendors!

 If you are a Dallas bride, you won’t want to miss these reccommendations!
