Nights of a Thousand Lights

December 16, 2016

We had another great event at Nights of a Thousand Lights hosted by Sherman Gardens! We got to see all our local Orange County families enjoying the beautiful Gardens illuminated with a thousand luminaries, holiday lights and festive decorations. Each section of the Garden had unique lighting and decorations. It was a sight to see- and not to mention free hot coco and s’mores!!

We had a blast participating with a pop up photo booth to capture the memories from the night. We had hilarious props that everyone loved! Thank you again to Sherman Gardens for including us.

Thank you to everyone who came to support the Junior League of Orange County! The Christmas Company was yet another success. We had our own booth where we had a popular raffle, offered photo sessions to benefit the Jr. League, and met wonderful families. There were tons of boutique booths along side us selling their best goodies, great food and drinks, and hosting fun activities. One of which was our favorite, though we may be a tad biased… SANTA PHOTOS!!

Jenn captured so many adorable families with Santa Clause, straight from the North Pole. For those who were lucky enough to get their photo taken with him, check out our gallery to find your photo, click HERE.

We had SUCH a blast at the Creatures of the Night event hosted by Sherman Gardens! We got to see all our local Orange County families interacting, observing and learning about the many plants and animals that are most active at night. From carnivorous plants to owls and wolves, there was something interesting for everyone.

We were lucky enough to participate with a pop up photo booth for all the kiddos to stop at and capture the memories from the night! A big THANK YOU to Sherman Gardens and to all the families who came out to the spooky extravaganza!

A big THANK YOU to The Land of Nod at South Coast Plaza. They hosted the best marketplace event at their store full of  vendors for all those wonderful Mama’s out there. We were happy to be included along with The Solly Baby Wrap, Tubby Todd Bath Co., EzPz Fun, and more! We set up a mini pop up studio and had mini photo sessions. It was an endless giggle fest with all the adorable kiddos jumping in and out of our backdrop. Thank you to all the moms and dads for participating and coming to shop all these smart, trendy, and family-friendly brands. Check out some of the event photos below!

We had a blast participating in Spa Gregorie’s Girls Night Out in Newport Beach. There were amazing vendors debuting new products,  discounted services, hair and makeup demos, luxe swags bags, raffle prizes and more! The ladies enjoyed cocktails by Spa Girl (a must-try!) plus catered food while mingling at each booth.  The live music by singer, Jerome Dean, was phenomenal- it was a night to remember! We were so happy to be there and meet all of the lovely guests. We captured a ton of awesome headshots- see a sneak peak below!

Our Grand Opening Event was this past Thursday and we are thrilled to say it was a HUGE success! We had so much fun as a company, raised money for CASA of Orange County, and had so many wonderful donors who made the evening possible.

Jenn, Tera, and I were so excited getting everything ready. Goody bags were stocked, champagne was chilled, makeup was on and we were ready to go! Julie Floyd, our loved CEO, even flew in from Chicago to attend. The four of us had so much fun during the party, it was a full house all night. All the guests were chatting, bidding, laughing- the studio had the best energetic buzz. Jenn was giving complimentary head shots in the back room, I was taking photos of the party, and Tera was running around making sure everyone was taken care of, while her hubby Wes played bartender. It was a real team effort and I am proud to say we ROCKED it.

The party wasn’t only a blast, it was also so beneficial to CASA of Orange County. CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates, an amazing non-profit organization that serves severely abused, neglected and abandoned children through the recruitment, training and continued support of volunteers who advocate and mentor these children, representing their best interest in the courtroom and other settings. They rely on the community for donations and we are so happy to announce we raised almost $2,000 for them. Our mutual love for children make us such great partners and we can’t wait to continue working with them.

We have SO many people to thank for their donations. Above All Catering took our party to another level. We reached out to them asking for a small donation of appetizers for our evening, perhaps one to two veggie trays for people to munch on?  The stunning display of food was more than we ever could have expected. Take a look at the photos to see for yourself.  Lepique Beauty gave me, Julie, Tera, and Jenn  complimentary makeovers, and stayed the whole night! They gave hair & makeup touch ups to everyone who wanted head shots done.  The auction table had so many wonderful donations from people in our community. A special thank you to The Land of Nod, Alice + Ames, Along Came a Spider,  Beauty Counter, doTerra Essential Oils,  Find Your Zen Yoga, POP Landscaping, OC Mom + Tot, Baby Sleep Coach, Fodada Wear, Glo Nail Bar, Stella+Dot, and Beauty Collection for all that they donated. We could not have done it without you!
