I recently had the honor of photographing the new Look Book for Solutions Bridal Designer House here in Orlando. I teamed up with the amazingly talented hair & makeup artist, Simone Rosas of Makeover Station, along with styling masters, Tali and Kayleigh of Solutions. We always have such fun collaborating together on these shoots. As an artist and photographer, having the opportunity to be creative and possess the “anything goes” attitude in my shoots, refreshes my creative juices. So, instead of an environment, I opted to photograph our beautiful models in front of a few colorful and textured backdrops to keep the focus solely on the dresses and accessories. Since the shoot took place at my house, we also took advantage of some of the areas inside, including my lovely vintage claw-foot bathtub. (Yes, that is the one feature that sold me when house hunting…) A special thank you to our fabulous, sweet, and beautiful models, Lily, Carrie, and Lindsey…you all were so wonderful to work with! xoxo – Abby

Introducing sweet and sassy Lily…
…we had so much fun playing with different accessories and props. I LOVE the knit gloves we added to her ensemble which I purchased at an antique store over a decade ago…I knew there would be a use for them, eventually.
…Playful and energetic are two words to describe Lily’s personality.
…and oh so pretty.
A classic Etiquette book from 1950…
A perfect match with Lily’s eyeglasses and dress.
And onto a stunning hot pink brocade and velvet backdrop by Drop it Modern.
Tali and Kayleigh played with glamourous gold accessories and an over-the-top veil…totally fit the mood we were going for.
And now introducing Carrie, so classic and graceful.
…and might I add delightful.
and SO angelic…
And introducing Lindsey: fabulous and fierce.
…and an absolute joy to work with.
and introducing Mr. Rook, my handsome boy.
and lastly, the claw-foot tub series…
with the most amazing light.
