PHOTO SHOOT Sneak Peeks!

Last week I had a photo shoot in my home with über talented photog Sabra Lattos. It was a ton of work leading up to it (that I freely admit I imposed on myself!), as it was my hope that I could infuse as much of my personal style into each space as possible! But because Sabra and I are longtime blog friends and collaborators, no question, the day-of was so so fun. I’m super excited to see her take on my styling in the final pics, but in the meantime, here are a few peeks I quickly snapped around the house (more on Instagram!)…

The day ended for me with a sunset picnic overlooking Newport Harbor, joined by my visiting brother and his family (they are moving here to the O.C. next month!). It was an incredible sunset (no filter!) and made me feel even more fortunate. What a day!

Desiring an online space to explore well-rounded, inspired content in all topics she loves most, Erika created 'The E List' (formerly the Small Shop blog) in 2010. When not enjoying an “occasional" glass of wine and wanderlusting for even warmer climates, Erika can be found sharing laughs with friends and family, and trying her very best to keep up with her 6-year old daughter (yet failing miserably).

  1. That pendant is to die for, but you look stunning! Love that shot of you! Can’t wait to see it in full!

  2. Can’t wait to see the final images! So exciting that your brother is moving close to you. I definitely miss having my sister nearby 🙂
