Well, it’s taken me long enough to post this amazing shoot; I wanted to save it for just the right moment in the Fall and after my Summer Style Shoots. Prepare to be amazed! Amazing Photography by Corlana from LanaJenae Photography. Location is at Lake Padden! Styled by me: Melanie Beilner!

Aren’t these two just lovely? They are newly married and headed to Burma as Missionaries soon. To find out more about their mission, go HERE!
Fall, to me, means bringing nature in and venturing out with many layers on. This is a recent sample of my Fall 2014 Instagram postings. Follow me at melaniebeilner!
I so enjoyed planning and setting up this beautiful casual picnic…just crackers and cheese, fruit and Ginger Ale. I decorated the table with seashells the girls collected, sand in a jar, and natural colored flowers. The color palette was based on the girls favorite colors.
The food is from Safeway. The white plates are from the Goodwill; they are mismatched. Forks and crochet tablecloth and other odds n’ ends from Garage Sales (fruit basket, purple bucket, cutting board, white vase, etc.). Napkins are homemade; I sewed on the “crochet” edge.
This is so where I want to be right now
Pillows are homemade or from “free piles” at Garage Sales. Wooden Carry-All boxes used as “table” from a “free” pile.
These cousins were so much fun and so beautiful and so kind. LOVE!
There were so many other great pics but that is all for now…Bye For Now! (Location at Semiahmoo Beach)
I post this magical sunny September session on this blustery cold windy October night…I can’t believe what a difference a few weeks can make! It really was a magical Summer evening…these 4 girls are best friend cousins and love each other so much! I loved helping come up with the theme and carrying it out to tell a “story”! We decided on subtle Bohemian…a picnic at Semiahmoo Beach with a fort! The lovely Corlana, from Lana Jenae Photography, captured all these amazing images!
My hubby helped build a wooden fort frame so we could just drape some pretty sheets (we used some clips to secure the sheets). Sheets are from Goodwill.
For this shoot I offered ideas for the wardrobe but did not select the pieces myself…I love the fashionable crochet, lace and “boho” cowgirl look the girls chose! The Boho floral crowns were such a hit! (My daughter helped me put these together with scavenged flowers.)
I think it’s safe to say, these girls will remember this day for a long time. I think the photo says it all!
After building the Beach fort the girls collected shells and sand and flowers for the picnic “table.” Corlana captured these moments so beautifully.
If these images aren’t enough to make you long for – Bohemian Beach …wait till I post the picnic next! stay tuned!
