Winter Styled Shoot: Newport, RI

Updated: Oct 9, 2021

This shoot is what pink dreams are made of.

When Jamal and Lashana Photography and I decided to team up and I first heard their vision for a non-traditional all pink winter shoot, I was all in. It's an unexpected color palette for winter. The combination of crisp whites, a variety of pinks, and hints of mixed metals created a unique winter aesthetic. You could say we really warmed things up in frosty February.

Our dynamic vendor team gathered just weeks before COVID at the stunning Queen Anne's Loft on idyllic Thames Street in Newport, RI. The space is perfect for hosting ceremonies and intimate receptions, accommodating up to 100 guests for a seated dinner. And their statement chandelier, fireplace, and plenty of natural light make this space absolute perfection for more intimate events.

Among my favorite elements of this shoot were the dynamic and textured florals by SoulFlora Floral Design, the joy that our models Stacie and Steven radiated, and the sophistication in the rentals provided by Refined Rentals LLC and BBJ Linen.

We balanced moments of softness and angularity, minimalism and luxury, personality and understated elegance.

Needless to say, I'm drooling over these images.
